THE IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY SKINCARE

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.

 

WHY IS GOOD SKIN CARE IMPORTANT?

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.

Evoke Skin Tightening for Facial Remodeling

As the years go by, we can start to notice the skin around our face and neck losing the firmness and elasticity that gives us that youthful look. If you’ve been catching glimpses of less-defined features in the mirror and thinking, “I wish I could ditch the double-chin,” or “my face could really use a little lift!” you might just be in need of a skin-tightening treatment!

At Embody MedSpa, we’re excited to offer our clients Evoke Skin Tightening – a non-surgical treatment that both reduces fat and tightens the areas around the face and neck where we tend to experience sagging and loose skin.

THE TREATMENT AREAS
Evoke Skin Tightening can help address the following areas:

  • Excess submental (under-chin) fat 
  • Jawline
  • Jowls

THE TECHNOLOGY
Using a series of hands-free applicators, one of our qualified practitioners administers Evoke’s non-invasive radio frequency energy to the target area, heating the skin and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin within the cells.

This radio frequency energy works to remodel skin and tissue on the cheeks, neck, and jawline, to help define facial features and achieve a more youthful appearance. 

Evoke

Evoke Skin Tightening

THE CADENCE
Most clients experience the best results with at least 4 sessions, administered once every week. Results are typically seen after the second or third session.

Evoke treatments requires little-to-no downtime, allowing you to get back to your busy life after stepping out of our office!

Ready to explore facial remodeling for firmer, younger-looking features? Schedule a consultation with one of our highly-skilled practitioners and receive a custom treatment plan for your Evoke Skin Tightening journey!

Elevate Your Wellness With B12 & LipoLean Boosters

Warmer weather means getting out of the house more and doing all of the social activities. With so much to do and so many places to be, it’s nice to have a couple of pick-me-ups in your wellness arsenal.

One of our favorite ways to boost energy and metabolism when life gets a little crazy is with B12 and LipoLean Boosters!

While these treatments are available year-round, they’re especially helpful for enhancing your health during those busy seasons when you’re feeling overwhelmed.

 

BOOST YOUR ENERGY WITH B12

Looking to amplify your energy levels? Get your fix of vitamin B12 with our B12 Boosters.

Vitamin B12 is utilized by almost every cell in the human body, and it plays a vital role in forming red blood cells and converting fat and protein into energy. 

In addition to its energetic benefits, B12 also increases immunity, helps support more restful sleep, and aids in the cellular repair of skin, hair, and nails!

SUPPORT YOUR LIVER WITH LIPOLEAN

If you’re ready for a metabolic boost, our LipoLean injections are the perfect solution.  

This powerhouse booster helps to regulate cravings and appetite, utilize carbs for energy, and stimulate your liver – meaning it supports your body’s natural metabolic processes, aids in fat loss, and can provide a much-needed energetic lift.

EXPERIENCE FAST & EFFICIENT RESULTS

These treatments can be scheduled individually or used in conjunction with one another for the ultimate synergistic wellness boost. They’re also quick to kick in, producing results within just 48-72 hours of the injection! 

While they can be performed a la carte, for best results it’s recommended to book a series of boosters once a week for four weeks, followed by once a month for maintenance. 

READY TO GET WELL?

If you’re ready to feel energized, confident, and vibrant this Summer, now’s the perfect time to book your treatments.

Don’t wait to start prioritizing your wellness. Contact us today to schedule your appointment!

The Cool Way to Sculpt & Tone for Summer

Find yourself staring at the calendar and wondering how it’s already Spring? With Summer just around the corner, it’s that time of year when people start frantically hitting the gym in a last-ditch effort to shrink the areas that have them shying away from shorts and tank tops.

The good news? You don’t have to start carving out hours of your day, seven days a week to run and lift your way to a Summer-ready body. CoolSculpting® and CoolTone™ can do the heavy lifting for you.

FREEZE YOUR WAY TO A SUMMER FIGURE
CoolSculpting® is innovative fat-freezing technology designed to safely target and kill stubborn fat cells, without damaging surrounding tissue. This treatment permanently removes up to 25% of unwanted fat in the targeted area, making it the perfect option if you’re seeking long-term results (and who isn’t?).

This treatment is completely non-invasive and requires zero downtime, so it can easily accommodate your busy schedule. After just 1-2 sessions (where you get to just relax and let the technology go to work) and in as little as 1-3 months, you will see amazing results. That’s right: No needles, no surgery, no downtime, and fast results.

SAFELY TARGET STUBBORN AREAS
CoolSculpting® is one of the most successful non-invasive treatments for fat loss, and it’s FDA-cleared to treat the following areas:

Submental fat (under the chin)
Bra fat
Abdomen fat
Back fat
Flank and lovehandles
Underneath the buttock
Inner and outer thigh

Whether you’re looking to tighten up your arms for tank top season or get your belly bikini-ready, CoolSculpting® can target those stubborn “problem” areas with precision.

MAGNETIZE MORE MUSCLE DEFINITION
While CoolSculpting® helps you melt away unwanted fat, CoolTone™ uses powerful magnetic muscle stimulation (MMS) to contract your muscles, giving your abs, butt, and thighs a tighter and more toned appearance. That means you can get the definition you crave without picking up any dumbbells!

When used in combination with CoolSculpting®, clients often achieve the perfect balance of fat loss and muscle tone they’re looking for.

SAVE WHILE YOU SCULPT
If the benefits alone aren’t reason enough to start your CoolSculpting® and CoolTone™ journey, we’re currently offering 50% off packages, plus an extra $200 rebate when you get started today!

Ready to sit back, chill out, and sculpt your way to the body of your dreams? Contact us to schedule your consultation, where one of our highly-skilled practitioners will create a custom treatment plan tailored to your specific goals.

“Spring” into action by growing your glow!

Spring is a busy time at Embody Medspa as we prepare for the warmer season ahead. Visions of sugarplums are long gone, visions of clogged pores, “maskne” and dry patches, along with freshly formed lines, can easily creep into summer-laid planning. Spring is the perfect time to prioritize self-care, meet with your aesthetician and plan your skincare plan before spring activities fill up your calendar.

Our staff includes some of the best in the business. While under our care, you will be artfully attended to with some of the latest skincare techniques aimed to calm, correct, and prep your bashful winter skin, for the impending heat, humidity, and socialization!

Dry Skin

Do you find your skin itchy or flaky? Moisturizers just aren’t cutting it? Or, do you feel depleted of moisture from within? We have the perfect fix. Try one of our famed Hydrafacials, a customized Moisture Infusing Facial, or a gentle Enzyme Treatment, to replace moisture and hydrate skin.

A Hydrafacial is an easy way to supercharge your skincare program and perk up your skin with zero downtime. As an added bonus, all of our HydraFacial’s include customized boosters and Celluma LED Light Treatment, which increases collagen and elastin, improving firmness and elasticity.

Another option is to contact us to help you design a customized Moisture Infusing Facial. We offer free consultations and can cater your facial to any specific need or concern.

A Gentle Enzyme Treatment has garnered many ‘likes’ as well, with its power to infuse skin with emollients and humectants, replacing moisture and hydrating skin to the max.

Oily Skin

Are you going through boatloads of blotting sheets? Can your skin not handle a moisturizer even with the dry winter air? Do you feel like your sheen can be spotted across the room? Believe me, we’ve heard it all before and we’ve got you covered.

It may seem counterintuitive, but the proof is in “the pudding” as they say – a Hydrafacial is where it’s at – EVEN for oily skin. Somehow the dots connect, your skin corrects, and this magical facial does not disappoint.
Another option is a customized Skin Balancing Facial, something often chosen by those with multiple needs, wanting to get the most bang for their buck. We can address more than one issue at once, saving you time and the aggravation of having to wait for multiple services to see the most fruitful results.

Lastly, a Salicylic Acid Peel is also a customer favorite. Medical grade chemical peels will gently resurface your skin to improve tone and texture. We set out to balance oil production, without drying the skin out, resulting in a clean complexion.

Aging Skin

Do you have “crinkles” and crow’s feet? Are there parentheses around your mouth or quotes in between your eyes? Are you tired of projecting grammar on your face? It’s not the first time we’ve heard it and it’s certainly not the last. Aging skin is inevitable; even if certain friends seemingly have the cure to lifelong youth, the aging process is unavoidable. But, we are here to make it manageable and help slow down the process for you.

Again, our Hydrafacial is an all-around winner for just about every skin concern, and aging skin is no different. Come in for one of these hydrating facials or a customized Plumping and Firming Facial to infuse the skin with peptides and antioxidants to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Redness/Sensitive Skin

Are you prone to rosy cheeks, rosacea, or just finicky skin that can’t seem to agree with any one product? Come on in for one of our customized Calming Facials or a Gentle Enzyme Treatment aimed at relieving redness and irritation with soothing marine extracts.

Sun Damage

Have you spent a little too much time baking in the sun – before realizing how much of a toll it takes on your skin? It’s easy to do and depending on your skin type, it may be very well apparent. Again, check out our Hydrafacial for a refresh or a Skin Brightening Peel which will brighten and hydrate environmentally stressed skin with a blend of vitamin C and humectants. Now, the time is to hydrate your skin before unavoidably exposing it to more sun!

Acne or “Maskne”

As we have told clients time and time again, acne is something we aren’t afraid to deal with here at Embody. Work with us to create a customized Cleansing and Healing Facial or schedule a Salicylic Peel to get a clear complexion that leaves skin smooth and healed.

Contact us here for any further questions involving your spring self-care planning.

COMING OUT OF HIBERNATION

The days are getting a little longer and maybe just a little warmer; before you know it, we’ll be ditching our sweats for shorts. If a long winter of decadence has left your skin a little parched and puffy, then it’s the perfect time for a spring refresh. This is what we’d recommend.

VITAMIN C CURES EVERYTHING
C REBOOT BY PHI

Awaken your glow with our supercharged C Reboot anti-aging serum. This hydrating cocktail of vitamin C, Lilac stem cells, and marine extracts literally turns on the 14 genes that keep skin young and will leave you with a brighter complexion in just four weeks. Phi Skincare’s concentrated formula gives your skin a Hyaluronic boost which naturally increases collagen. Our powerhouse serum will calm redness and rosacea, reduce lines and wrinkles, and decrease blackheads and breakouts. The age-defying marine extracts work to visibly improve dark spots and sun damage. The winter months beat up our skin, fight back with Phi Anti-Aging Serum and naturally enhance your glow.

REFRESHED SKIN, EASY AS 1,2,3
HYDRAFACIAL

This multi-step process uses “Vortex-Fusion Technology” and leaves skin healthy, refreshed, and radiant. Step one: The Cleanse & Peel resurfaces and removes debris and dead skin. The serum contains glycolic and salicylic acid, giving the skin a mild chemical peel. Step two: The Extract & Hydrate uses gentle suction to remove debris from pores and nourish skin with intense hydration. Finally, step three: Fuse & Protect penetrates the skin’s surface with antioxidants and peptides that promote elasticity and hydration with a cool, refreshing sensation.

REMODEL YOUR SKIN FROM THE INSIDE OUT
EVOKE

The Evoke energy delivered through hands-free facial applicators is a quick, non-surgical alternative to achieve definition in your face, neck, and jawline. It penetrates deep into the subdermal layer, heating the Fibro Septal Network (FSN). This constant heat remodels the dermis and subdermal tissue to deliver more distinct facial characteristics with no downtime. The result is a naturally firmer, younger-looking appearance.
WE BELIEVE IN SCIENCE
MORPHEUS8

Morpheus8 is suitable for all skin types and targets just about every complaint – aging, acne, scarring, enlarged pores, and more! Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency and microneedling, two scientifically proven methods to tighten and resurface the skin while stimulating collagen production. This treatment is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew the deeper layers of the skin and smooth wrinkles with almost no downtime.

A FAN OF THE TAN
SPRAY TAN

Maybe the quickest way to look Spring ready is with a bit of sun-kissed glow. A spray tan will take you from pale to perfect in 30 minutes. It allows us to achieve the healthy, bronzed look we love without the harmful UV rays generated by the sun or tanning beds. We use Aviva Organic airbrush tanning. This system is oil-free, alcohol-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, dries in seconds, and ensures the most natural-looking color possible because it is customizable to each client’s skin tone.

By the time Valentine’s Day comes around the momentum we get from the freshness of a new year can really wear off – especially when you’re not really noticing the results you’d been hoping for.

WINTER ISN’T THE ONLY THING THAT’S FREEZING
This non-invasive fat reduction treatment is gentle, effective, and permanent. Once our team has assessed your problem areas, whether it be love handles, thighs, abs, bra fat, under chin fat, or the dreaded back fat, they will target those areas and start the process of removing fat forever.

CoolTone does NOT freeze fat, it utilizes a 1.8 Tesla magnet to stimulate involuntary muscle contraction, 50% more magnetic intensity than the leading competitor. This treatment is most effective in areas such as your abs, buttocks, and thighs – giving you a toned look in a fraction of the time.

Dermal Fillers – Something to Smile About

In our youth, our lips are naturally plumped with collagen, but we notice fine lines around our mouth and less volume in our lips as we get older. While the rich lip colors that are out this season beg to be painted on full lips, we are not looking to become famous for our lip injections, i.e., Kylie Jenner. So, this month, we ask Sharon, owner of Embody MedSpa, to tackle the most common questions about dermal fillers.

Q: Who are dermal fillers for?

A: Dermal fillers are for anyone who would like more fullness in their lips and for people who have been living with fine lines around their mouth, eyes, or forehead. Instead of purchasing every lip plumping gloss on the market or drawing outside the natural lines of your lip with lipliner, fillers will create a full, soft, natural-looking lip. They will also restore the natural contours of the face that keep us looking young and healthy. 

Q: Which injectable should I choose?

A: At Embody, we offer the entire collection of FDA-approved injectable Juvéderm Fillers.  These fillers ensure a natural look while restoring volume, treating fine lines, and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Juvéderm allows for soft fullness without puffiness.

Q: What are they made of?

The active ingredient in Juvéderm is hyaluronic acid. This sugar,found naturally in the body, adds temporary volume and definition when injected into lips.  It is also FDA cleared for use in the cheek, chin, jawline, and perioral area to smooth lines and restore contours. The plumping effect of hyaluronic acid serums on fine lines and wrinkles are well known, and the injections work similarly; the hyaluronic acid attracts water and hydrates the skin while volumizing.

Q: Will it hurt?

A: Juvéderm mixes pain-reducing lidocaine into the formula, and with each injection, you can expect an increased level of temporary numbness. The start of the procedure may be mildly uncomfortable; however, as it continues, you may feel pressure but very little pain. Our nurses are extensively trained in the cannula technique which minimizes pain and bruising.

Q: What is the procedure like?

A: Dermal fillers appointments are approximately 30-45 minutes, including the consultation so it’s something you could even do on your lunch break.  Our highly skilled nurse injectors will start with a consultation to understand the client’s specific goals and then customize a treatment plan that will help you achieve your goals. The nurse will mark the areas to be treated and then inject Juvéderm into the target area. She will lightly massage the area to ensure even distribution and reduce the chance of swelling.

Q: Are there side effects?

A: I get questions about side effects a lot; with this treatment, you can expect mild swelling and bruising that could last anywhere from 24 to 72 hours. The nurse will go over your post care with you and make sure you have a way to get in contact with her in case you have any questions or concerns. At first, you may feel some firmness around the targeted areas; however, that will be naturally metabolized within a day or two.

Q: How long do they last?

A: Dermal fillers are not permanent. I wish I could say they were, but they fade because they contain naturally occurring enzymes, such as hyaluronic acid, so your body will metabolize them over time. The speed of your metabolism will significantly affect how long your treatment results last; fillers tend to last longer in areas with less movement, but I bet your full lips will have you smiling a lot, so expect a touch-up every eight to ten months. Fillers in the cheek area usually last 1-2 years.

Dermal fillers are a safe, non-invasive way to minimize fine lines around your cheeks and eyes and volumize your lips. Come see us at Embody MedSpa; we’ll answer your questions about dermal fillers and give you the full pout you desire. Then, go out and buy that bright red lipstick!
