Medical day spas are becoming the norm, offering everything from body sculpting to liposuction and everything in between. More and more people, particularly women, are interested in what medical day spas have to offer but are worried about the safety of the procedures. Here are 5 of the safest treatments to try.
Of course, not every medical day spa will offer the same treatments, however, these 5 treatments are not only the safest but they are also the most common. Chances are you know someone who has had at least one of these treatments.
Laser Hair Removal
This treatment is most effective if you have lighter skin and darker hair because the laser can detect the hair follicle better if there is contrast. If you are a good candidate, this treatment can be applied to almost any area of the body to reduce hair growth. In particular, underarms, legs, and bikini lines are very popular. After 6 treatments you will have little to no growth in that area for up to a year and after that, only minor touch up treatments are needed.
Hydrafacials are safe and extremely effective for your skin. A licensed professional uses a special machine to cleanse your skin, suck out the pores, and deliver enzymes for repair. Other things can be added on to a hydrafacial such as a LED treatment or a deeper peel. But the basic hydrafacial is the safest treatment.
A glycolic peel is the lightest level of chemical peel offered. It can be done in conjunction with a facial or by itself. Glycolic peels are safe for almost all people and skin types. A licensed professional will clean your skin, add the glycolic acid peel, let it sit for a few minutes, and remove the peel. You should always avoid the sun for a few days after a peel and wear extra sunscreen. The glycolic acid removes layers of skin from your face and imperfections are lost along with it, but your skin remains vulnerable for a few days.
Waxing is a great alternative to laser hair removal. It may be preferred if you are unsure about how much hair you want to remove, for example, in your bikini area. Because the hair will all regrow a Brazilian wax will allow you to see what you think before taking a huge step. At a medical day spa, they may use numbing creams before or calming gels after the treatment to prevent pain and red bumps.
