Under Your Skin: A Deep Dive Into Medical Grade Skincare

In a world where skincare routines have become an integral part of self-care rituals, the distinction between over-the-counter (OTC) skincare products and medical-grade skincare has gained significant attention. While both aim to address various skin concerns, medical-grade skincare stands out for its efficacy, precision, and scientifically advanced formulations. Let’s delve into what sets medical-grade skincare apart and why it’s garnering increasing interest from skincare enthusiasts and professionals alike.

Higher Levels of Active Ingredients

One of the defining characteristics of medical-grade skincare is its concentration of active ingredients. Unlike their OTC counterparts, medical-grade products contain higher levels of potent actives such as retinoids, antioxidants, peptides, and growth factors. These ingredients are carefully formulated to penetrate deeper layers of the skin, targeting specific concerns at their root.

The elevated potency of active ingredients in medical-grade skincare allows for enhanced efficacy in addressing a wide range of skin issues, including acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. By delivering higher concentrations of key compounds, medical-grade products can produce more noticeable and lasting results compared to OTC alternatives.

More Bioavailable Ingredients

Bioavailability refers to the body’s ability to absorb and utilize a substance effectively. In medical-grade skincare, ingredients are meticulously selected and formulated to optimize bioavailability, ensuring maximum absorption and efficacy. This means the active compounds can penetrate the skin barrier more efficiently, reaching the targeted cells and producing the desired effects.

Moreover, medical-grade skincare often incorporates advanced delivery systems such as liposomes, nanoparticles, and microencapsulation techniques. These innovative technologies help enhance the stability and penetration of active ingredients, allowing them to exert their therapeutic effects precisely where they are needed within the skin’s layers.

Cleaner Formulations

Another distinguishing feature of medical-grade skincare is its commitment to cleaner formulations. Unlike many OTC products that may contain fillers, fragrances, and other potentially irritating ingredients, medical-grade formulations prioritize purity and safety. These products are often free from common allergens, parabens, sulfates, and artificial dyes, minimizing the risk of adverse reactions and sensitivities.

By eliminating unnecessary additives and focusing on high-quality, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, medical-grade skincare offers a gentler yet more potent approach to skin health. This emphasis on purity not only reduces the likelihood of irritation but also enhances the overall effectiveness of the products.

Targeting Underneath the Skin

Perhaps the most compelling aspect of medical-grade skincare is its ability to target concerns at a deeper level within the skin. While OTC products may provide superficial improvements, medical-grade formulations work beneath the surface, addressing issues at their source.

Whether stimulating collagen production, regulating cell turnover, or repairing damaged DNA, medical-grade skincare targets underlying cellular processes to promote long-term skin health and rejuvenation. By nourishing and revitalizing the skin from within, these products can achieve transformative results beyond mere surface-level improvements.


In the realm of skincare, the transition from OTC products to medical-grade formulations represents a shift towards science-backed solutions that deliver tangible results. With their higher levels of active ingredients, enhanced bioavailability, cleaner formulations, and ability to target beneath the skin’s surface, medical-grade skincare offers a comprehensive approach to achieving optimal skin health.

Whether you’re dealing with stubborn acne, stubborn hyperpigmentation, or visible signs of aging, incorporating medical-grade skincare into your routine can make a notable difference in your skin’s appearance and vitality. By harnessing the power of advanced formulations and cutting-edge technologies, medical-grade skincare paves the way for a brighter, smoother, and more radiant complexion.

Enhance Your Weight Loss Journey with CoolTone 

Are you currently using weight loss medications like semaglutide, Ozempic, Wegovy, or Mounjaro to help shed those extra pounds? These medications can offer impressive results, but did you know that you can further enhance your progress by incorporating CoolTone into your fitness plan? Let’s delve into how the combination of CoolTone and weight loss medications can take your journey to the next level.

The Synergy of CoolTone and Weight Loss Medications

Let’s explore how CoolTone can complement your weight loss medication:

1. Muscle Preservation:

Maintaining and strengthening your muscles is vital during a weight loss journey. While weight loss medications like semaglutide primarily target fat loss, they can sometimes lead to muscle loss. CoolTone, on the other hand, provides a solution.

Utilizing Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) technology, CoolTone triggers intense muscle contractions. These contractions not only help preserve your muscle mass but can also contribute to building it. So, with CoolTone in your corner, you can focus on shaping your body instead of worrying about muscle loss.

2. Enhanced Metabolism:

One of the key benefits of combining CoolTone with your weight loss medication is its impact on metabolism. CoolTone promotes an increase in muscle mass, and muscles are metabolically active tissues. In simpler terms, having more muscle means your body burns more calories, even when you’re at rest.

By boosting your metabolism with CoolTone, you’ll find that you’re burning calories more efficiently, accelerating your weight loss journey, and maintaining your results over time.

3. Sculpted Physique:

Are you dreaming of a toned abdomen, firmer buttocks, and sculpted thighs? CoolTone is designed to help you achieve precisely that. It targets these specific areas, delivering powerful muscle contractions that result in a more sculpted appearance. So, as your weight loss medication helps you shed pounds, CoolTone assists you in shaping and toning your body to achieve your desired look.

Maximizing Your Weight Loss Journey

Before incorporating CoolTone into your weight loss plan, it’s crucial to consult with one of Embody’s providers, especially if you’re already taking medication. We can provide personalized guidance based on your unique needs and goals. Book a Free Consultation Today!

CoolSculpting for the upper arms

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells in specific areas of the body. While CoolSculpting is commonly used to treat areas like the abdomen, thighs, and love handles, it can also be performed on the upper arms. Here are some potential benefits of CoolSculpting for the upper arms: 0.

  1. Fat reduction: CoolSculpting can help reduce excess fat in the upper arm area, resistant to diet and exercise. Freezing and destroying the targeted fat cells can lead to a noticeable reduction in the fat layer, resulting in a slimmer appearance.
  2. Improved contour: CoolSculpting can help enhance the contour and shape of the upper arms. Removing unwanted fat, it can create a more sculpted and defined appearance in the area.
  3. Non-invasive and non-surgical: CoolSculpting is a non-surgical alternative to procedures such as liposuction. It does not require incisions, anesthesia, or a lengthy recovery period. The treatment is performed using a device that applies controlled cooling to the upper arms, making it a relatively comfortable and convenient option for fat reduction.
  4. Minimal downtime: After a CoolSculpting session, most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately. There may be some mild, temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, or numbness in the treated area, but they typically resolve within a few days.
  5. Long-lasting results: The fat cells targeted and destroyed during CoolSculpting are gradually eliminated from the body over time. Once the fat cells are gone, they do not regenerate. Therefore, the results of CoolSculpting can be long-lasting as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained to prevent weight gain in the future.
  6. Customized treatment: CoolSculpting can be tailored to the specific needs of each individual. The applicators used during the procedure can be selected to fit the size and shape of the upper arm area, ensuring precise targeting and optimal results. It’s important to note that while CoolSculpting can be an effective treatment for reducing upper arm fat, it may not be suitable for everyone. It is best to schedule a FREE consultation with one of our medical aestheticians to determine if CoolSculpting is the right option for your specific situation and goals.

Embody MedSpa Injectables

Ready to relax wrinkles and smile lines, contour your body, or improve structure, framework and volume to your face and lips? Cosmetic injectables are simple, non-surgical procedures administered by our highly-skilled, licensed on-site Aesthetic Nurse Specialists. After a thorough consultation and assessment, our nurses will discuss your treatment plan to address your concerns and deliver the results you want. Keep reading to find the treatment that may be right for you!


Cosmetic injectables Botox and Dysport are used to treat frown lines, worry lines, and crow’s feet. This simple and super effective procedure reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles creating a more youthful, yet natural appearance.

What Should I Know About Botox?

  • A Botox injection is a safe, minimally invasive procedure.
  • Treatments require little recovery time.
  • Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Botox successfully treats a wide variety of medical conditions as well.

Botox is a neurotoxin that can temporarily relax the muscles in the areas where it’s injected. The FDA-approved protein in Botox effectively smooths out wrinkles and creases in your forehead, around your eyes, in the corners of your mouth, and on your chin. You can expect results 1-3 days after the procedure. Results can last from three months to a year depending on the treatment.


Juvederm is one of the most popular facial fillers and is a highly effective, non-surgical option for reducing wrinkles. This hyaluronic acid filler is the only one approved by the FDA to last up to a year, offering a long-lasting, smooth fix. We offer the entire collection of Injectable Juvederm Fillers – Ultra, Ultra Plus, Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure. Each unique filler ensures a natural look while restoring volume, treating fine lines, and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. Juvederm is typically a quick procedure, but treatment time can vary depending on the area to be treated. Downtime is typically minimal, and normal activities can be resumed the same day.


This non-invasive procedure uses your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to restore health and vibrancy to your skin while stimulating collagen production and new cell growth. To begin the treatment, we draw blood from your arm. Your blood will then be placed into a device that will spin the blood rapidly to separate the plasma from the platelet-rich plasma. Once isolated, we’ll apply the platelet-rich plasma to your skin either by microneedling or injections. PRP can reduce wrinkles, plump up sagging skin, get rid of deep creases, improve your complexion, and diminish acne scars.


Radiesse is an injectable used for smoothing moderate to severe neck & chest wrinkles. Radiesse stimulates your body’s natural collagen, filling in wrinkles long term and helping your skin develop new collagen in the process. The treatment is very quick, with results visible immediately. Just like other injectables, downtime is typically minimal, and normal activities can be resumed the same day.

Schedule your consultation today to find the right treatment plan for you!

Reveal What’s Under Your Skin

With summer behind us, now is the perfect time to really take a look at your skin. You may still be glowing from your summer tan, but do you really know what’s going on beneath the skin’s surface?
At Embody MedSpa, we offer Reveal skin analysis. Our Reveal Imager allows a 360-degree approach to analyzing your skin and customizing the most comprehensive treatment plan to get you to your skincare goals.
The Reveal Imager uses a multispectral imaging scan to capture key visual information regarding your skin’s health and appearance. Using RBX technology, it provides an extraordinary visualization of subsurface melanin and vascular conditions. This means the scan is used to evaluate the skin’s pigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, texture, spider veins, and acne patterns. It also will show skin texture, oily and congested skin, enlarged pores, brown spots, red areas, and more. Through this evaluation process, your personalized skin care approach is developed to treat your specific needs.
Your initial Reveal Imager analysis takes just a few minutes and is completely noninvasive. After the analysis is completed, a consultation will follow, and it is during this time your personalized skin care treatment recommendations will be discussed.
Reveal will provide you with an easy-to-understand report which includes pictures, treatment notes, and product recommendations. Our recommendations are based solely on your specific skin type and condition as exposed by the Reveal Imager, as well as our expert training. Throughout your treatments, the changes to your skin and the effectiveness of your skin care program may be recorded by the Reveal Imager. We make recommendations tailored to you, and together we will develop a skin care regimen that will benefit your skin now and in years to come.
Schedule a consultation with one of our highly-skilled practitioners to learn more about the Reveal Imager skin analysis and how you could benefit from personalized skin care!

As the largest organ, it is extremely important to take care of your skin. Not only is it important for your appearance, but it’s also vital to your general health.

Throughout the day, your body constantly sheds skin cells, so it’s important to keep your skin glowing and in good condition. An effective routine with quality skincare products can help reduce wrinkles, lines or redness, prevent blackheads, breakouts and sun damage, and help keep your skin looking its best.



Your skin provides a barrier to bacteria, dirt, and other environmental toxins which is why it’s important to have a good skincare routine and quality products.

Over time, the skin naturally loses elasticity. As we age, we lose hydration, brightness, and collagen. A good skincare routine will lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles by restoring firmness and texture to the skin. This will leave the skin looking healthier and younger.

Using a quality skincare line can help remove dead skin cells so your body will replace them with newer, more youthful cells. Utilizing pure ingredients that are paraben and sulfate-free will help keep the skin clean and refreshed. It’s important to choose products that nourish and rejuvenate, resulting in healthier, more hydrated, and radiant skin.

Remember, it’s not all hype or a quick fix, like so many current skincare products on the market claim to be. But rather, it’s a system of active skincare products that can prove their worth individually, as well as in conjunction with one another.
