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.

WINTER ISN’T THE ONLY THING THAT’S FREEZING

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!

We Have FALLen for These Five Treatments

Cozy sweaters, bright foliage, pumpkin spice, back to school…fall, we love you! Our incredible summer has come to an end, and the crisp autumn weather is here. Fall is a time for new beginnings, a time when we get serious about school, work, and new, nourishing self-care routines. Here are five fantastic fall treatments that will get you and your skin ready for the season ahead.

  1. HYDRAFACIAL

When it comes to parched skin, a Hydrafacial is a perfect antidote.  This hydrating facial restores the precious moisture that cooler temperatures extract from our skin. HydraFacial is for everyone and every skin condition, from oily to dry, sensitive to damaged, young to mature. The active solutions can be customized to deliver the best results for your concerns. Ultimately, HydraFacial will leave your face feeling softer than ever before, your pores will appear smaller, and it will decrease the appearance of blemishes. This relaxing treatment requires no downtime leaving you with smooth, hydrated, radiant skin. A perfect FALLback for dehydrated skin.

  1. LUMECCA IPL

Our potent Lumecca Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial treats hyperpigmentation and sun damage – the perfect solution for a long hot summer. This extremely effective procedure is ideal for clients looking for quick but dramatic improvement in brown spots and redness. Lumecca IPL will dramatically fade the appearance of age spots, sun damage, vascular lesions, rosacea, and freckles. We see results after the first session, but multiple sessions are recommended to maximize the impact on the skin. FALL in love with bright, even skin.

  1. MORPHEUS8

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. Morpheus8 treats just about everything – aging, acne, scarring, enlarged pores, and more! It can be used on all skin types and skin tones, with noticeable improvement after one treatment (although a series of treatments is recommended for optimal results). FALL into tighter, smoother skin!

  1. COOLSCULPTING

Cool-weather is coming; why not freeze away your unwanted fat! CoolSculpting targets those stubborn pockets of body fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting uses Cryolipolysis, a process in which targeted fat cells are destroyed without harming the surrounding tissues. The cells are then naturally flushed out of your system and gone for good. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive process for permanent fat reduction with no downtime. The procedure is so easy that you can resume regular activity immediately after; it can permanently isolate and eliminate persistent pockets of fat that diet and exercise can’t reach. Let your fat FALL away.

  1. BOTOX

Botox is a great way to start each season as we usually recommend a treatment every three to four months, but everyone is different, and we formulate a unique plan for each client. The dramatic impact on fine lines and wrinkles makes this one of our most popular treatments. We inject Botox in areas where we want to relax the muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, and other conditions. These wrinkles are typically found in the upper face, such as the forehead and around the eyes. How about looking as relaxed as you feel when the kids go back to school. Watch the years FALL away.

Come in and book one of these excellent treatments to celebrate the change of seasons and the beginning of fall! We can’t wait to hear from you.

HYDRAFACIAL – GROWING YOUR GLOW

Summer is almost over, and it has been exquisite! But, after all that sun, sand, and SPF, it’s time for therapeutic treatment for your skin. A HydraFacial is a perfect solution. It promises to target everything from oily and congested pores, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and deliver an instant glow. It’s no wonder that it is the most popular treatment out there right now!

Here’s why:

It’s Never Painful. If you avoid advanced treatments because of the discomfort, then you’ll be pleased to know the HydraFacial is rarely painful. That’s because the vortex suction used during the extraction is so gentle that it has been described as a light massage for your face. 

No Recovery Time.  Some treatments require some level of downtime. There may be residual redness, and your skin may feel a bit sensitive for a few days. That’s not the case with the HydraFacial; you will leave the treatment room with radiant, glowing skin. It makes sense that it’s a go-to treatment for celebs before an award show. 

Works on All Skin Types. HydraFacial is for everyone and every skin condition, from oily to dry, sensitive to damaged, young to mature. The active solutions can be customized to deliver the best results for your concerns. 

Instant Results. HydraFacial will leave your face feeling softer than ever before, your pores will appear smaller, and it will decrease the appearance of blemishes, leaving you with smooth, hydrated, radiant skin. Sounds pretty good, right?

Here’s what to expect:

Bespoke Treatment. First, one of our expert skincare professionals will assess your skin’s needs and choose an appropriate peel for your skin type. They will also select the strength of the suction. This facial is highly customizable, so we’ll find the best plan for you during the consultation.

A Three-Step Process. Using patented “Vortex-Fusion Technology,” the Hydrafacial leaves the skin healthy, refreshed, and radiant. 

  1. Cleanse & Peel: The exfoliator resurfaces, removes makeup, debris, and dead skin cells to leave you with a deep clean. After this, a serum containing glycolic acid and salicylic acid will be infused into the skin, providing a mild chemical peel. 
  2. Extract & Hydrate: The gentle suction painlessly removes debris from pores and nourishes the skin with intense hydration.  
  3. Fuse & Protect: The skin’s surface is penetrated with helpful antioxidants and peptides that promote elasticity and hydration while creating a cooling, refreshing sensation that will maximize your glow.  

The results are intense; our clients typically notice greatly improved skin hydration, minimized dark circles, and a dramatic reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles even after just one treatment. So if you’re wondering, “where can I find a HydraFacial near me,” the answer is right here at Embody Medspa. Contact us for a consultation

SHARON’S FAVORITES

People are always asking me, “Sharon, what are your favorite treatments”? I usually start by saying that I love ALL the treatments we offer here at Embody; if I didn’t, they wouldn’t make it to our services menu. But I do measure the success of a treatment based on two criteria: 1) Did this service improve confidence and self-esteem in my client? 2) Did my client leave Embody with noticeable results?  If I use these two questions as a litmus test, five treatments consistently make it to the top of my go-to list.

BOTOX – GOODBYE WRINKLES!

There is no other treatment that is this easy, this popular, and makes such a dramatic impact on fine lines and wrinkles. We inject Botox in areas where we want to relax the muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, and other conditions. These wrinkles are typically found in the upper face, such as the forehead and around the eyes. Everyone is different, so we formulate a plan unique to each client, but most of all, we listen to our clients and customize their programs to deliver the results they are looking for. Botox is one of our most popular services because it works so well! Why I love it: it’s quick, no downtime can be done to prevent and correct lines and wrinkles. The bottom line, your friends are right; it works!


HYDRAFACIAL – HELLO GLOW!

Maybe it’s not a miracle, but The Embody HydraFacial is a scientific advancement in skincare that promises stunning results quickly. The HydraFacial is an all-in-one treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, hydrates, infuses, and protects skin to restore vitality and establish radiant, glowing skin. The experience is entirely customizable and dictated by the specific needs of the client; options include “skin boosters” and “super serums,” manual extractions (if needed), LED Light therapy, lymphatic therapy, skin detoxification, and massage. Why I love it: The HyraFacial is ideal for all skin types, addresses sun damage, and shows noticeable results after one treatment. The bottom line, it’s time for your skin to shine!

MORPHEUS8 – KEEPIN’ TIGHT!

What, ANOTHER side effect of aging? Yes, when we grow older, our skin begins to lose elasticity and starts to sag. However, we have a treatment that can turn back the hands of time. Morpheus8 uses radiofrequency and microneedling, 2 scientifically proven methods to tighten and resurface 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. Why I love it:  Morpheus8 treats just about everything – aging, acne, scarring, enlarged pores, and more! It can be used on all skin types and skin tones; with noticeable improvement after one treatment (although a series of treatments is recommended for optimal results) continue. Bottom line, bag the sag and tighten up!

COOLTONE – TONE IT UP!

CoolTone uses magnetic muscle stimulation or MMS technology to strengthen and tone muscles. Magnetic waves penetrate deep into muscle layers to induce involuntary contractions. The result? Increased strength, better posture, improved fitness, more muscle mass, and definition. Why I love it: CoolTone can promote noticeable muscle strength and definition that cannot be attained by diet and exercise alone. One treatment is like doing 20,000 – 30,000 sit-ups or squats in 30 minutes, seriously! The bottom line, it’s the easiest workout you’ll ever do!

COOLSCULPTING ELITE – FREEZING FAT AWAY!

While CoolTone builds muscle, CoolSculpting Elite freezes your unwanted fat away. This procedure targets those stubborn pockets of body fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. CoolSculpting uses Cryolipolysis, a process in which targeted fat cells are destroyed without harming the surrounding tissues. The cells are then naturally flushed out of your system and gone for good. This is a noninvasive process for permanent fat reduction with no downtime. Why I love it:  The procedure is so easy and you can resume normal activity immediately after; it can isolate and eliminate persistent pockets of fat permanently that diet and exercise can’t reach. The bottom line, this is the fat loss solution you’ve been waiting for.

So there they are my top five picks. Everyone has different experiences, so let me know what your favorites are. If you are unsure of what treatment plan is right for you, call us for a consultation. We can discuss your goals and design an approach that is perfect for you.

Botox – The Icing on the Cake

Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons rank Botox as the number one non-surgical procedure on the market today, comprising nearly half of all injectable treatments. In addition, it’s known to be an unmatched solution for fine lines and wrinkles. At Embody Medspa, we continuously witness the transformative results Botox has on appearance and self-confidence.  But, don’t take our word for it, meet Angela Zaremba. This busy mother and business owner recently had Botox for the first time, and she was kind enough to share her story.

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am Angela Zaremba, founder, and designer of Luxa Jewelry, a handmade jewelry line established in 2010 that has grown into a full boutique located in Ipswich, MA. The backbone of my business is my handmade jewelry, but we also host other local makers in our space. We recently moved into a beautiful new location where we can focus more on production, events, and the expansion of our clothing section. I am the lucky mom of two of the funniest and lovable little kiddos. My son Nash is 6, and my daughter Hunter is 3. I have been married to the love of my life for ten years. On top of it all, we also have three rescue dogs.

Q: What made you consider Botox the first time? 

I was thinking about Botox for about three years, and when I was 37, I finally did it! Raising kids and running a business is busy. Sometimes it is hard to carve out time for me, but I find everything goes smoother when I do. Botox was something I wanted to do, just for me, and I am so glad I did.

Q: What were you targeting?

My main concern was the lines between my eyebrows – frequently called the 11’s and my forehead wrinkles. I noticed over the years that these lines were causing me to look a little tired even when I was fully rested.

Q: What were your preconceived notions about Botox? 

I was concerned about Botox before I got it. I did not want it to change my look entirely. I wanted to retain my natural expressions. I was worried it would be painful, and because I didn’t understand how it worked, I felt some anxiety.

Q: Why did you choose Embody MedSpa for your procedure?

I heard about Embody MedSpa last year from a few friends who had services there, and their results were stunning. So, I started following their social media journey, and I became convinced Embody was the right place for me.

Q: What was the experience like?

It was great! I was a little apprehensive about the whole process, having never done it before, but they made me feel comfortable right away. My experience at Embody was better than I could have imagined!

Q: Which team member did you see?

I saw Marcy, a registered nurse specializing in injectables.  She was so informative, not pushy at all, and helped ease my anxiety. Marcy listened to my goals and then suggested the Botox location based on that. She was deeply knowledgeable and helped me understand the degrees of movement I could expect.

Q: What was the room/vibe like?

The room was beautiful! Clean, calming, and spa-like. The treatment room was professional but also charming and comfortable.   

Q: Did it hurt?

It didn’t hurt at all! That was the part that surprised me the most. Not only did it not hurt, but I did not experience any side effects! 

Q: What do you think of the results?

I am so happy with the results. I wanted to retain enough movement to look 100% like myself, and I do, but I also look so refreshed. My favorite part is how it has lifted my eyebrows and brightened my eyes. 

Q: Are you happy that you chose Embody MedSpa? 

I am so happy I chose Embody MedSpa, and I will be going back. I lead a healthy lifestyle, I eat well, exercise, and try to get a lot of sleep, but this Botox experience has been the icing on the cake. Now I feel as good on the outside as I do on the inside!
