Local medical spa offers fresher, younger skin in just 30 minutes.
For those who can’t takes weeks off to recover, or can’t justify an expensive cosmetic surgery, “lunchtime lifts” are an ideal alternative.
Sun damage, age, hormones, dry mountain air —they all contribute fine lines and sagging skin. Traditionally, a facelift has been the top recommendation for younger looking skin. But for many, surgery is too drastic; it’s both costly and requires significant downtime.
“I’m a plastic surgeon, but I realize plastic surgery isn’t for everyone,” noted Dr. Renato Saltz, owner of Saltz Spa Vitoria. “That’s why I offer a variety of non-invasive procedures that can be done over a lunch break. Patients leave looking younger, refreshed and can go back to the office right away.”
Laser Genesis works by penetrating deep into the cellular layer of the skin. This laser treatment helps with acne scarring, wrinkles, rosacea, uneven texture and sun damage. Patients typically will need a series of three to six treatments for best results, and each session takes about 30 minutes.
Clear + Brilliant is another option to help fight and prevent the effects of aging skin.
This gentle laser treatment is clinically proven to improve fine lines, tone and texture and minimize the appearance of pores. This too takes about 30 minutes per session and four to six treatments are recommended.
Volbella is a non-surgical lip augmentation treatment designed to plump the lips and minimize the appearance of fine lines around the mouth, which have been traditionally difficult to treat. Volbella can last up to a year and is formulated with hyaluronic acid, helping the skin retain moisture.
Voluma adds volume to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks, creating a more youthful appearance. Results are nearly instant and can last for up to two years.
Dermaplane & Microdermabrasion both offer exfoliation, resulting in softer, smoother skin. The difference is in the method used.
With dermaplaning, an aesthetician uses a sharp surgical blade to manually slough and scrape off any build-up of dead skin cells on the face. With microdermabrasion, dull and dead skin cells are removed using a crushed diamond-encrusted vacuum suction wand. An aesthetician can help you decide which procedure is best for your skin type.
Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin. The heat helps remodel existing collagen and produce new collagen, which improves the smoothness and texture of the skin’s surface. The results are not immediate but quite noticeable and visible in three to six months.
So while you could spend your lunch break catching up on Facebook, taking years off your face certainly seems more enticing.
