Why Medical Spas may be the new big thing…

22 May 2010

A medical spa is a hybrid between a medical clinic and a day spa that operates under the supervision of medical doctor. Medical spa menus vary, but you can usually get medical spa treatments like laser treatments, laser hair removal, IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments, microdermabrasion, photofacials, injectables like Botox and fillers, chemical peels and skin tightening.

The types of cosmetic medical procedures that are ideal for a medical spa setting usually fall into these four categories – incision-less, provide minimal discomfort, little to no skin wound, and be performed in less than one hour. Newer, non-ablative procedures that do not remove the epidermis and provide no obvious wounding, are ideal in a medical spa. The most commonly know technologies that lead to such skin improvement include CoolTouch, Smoothbeam, Photorejuvenation and Nlite. Multiple treatments with these laser and light source machines leads to improvement in skin toning with a reduction of mild wrinkles.

In addition to such non-ablative approaches that improve the collagen in the skin, Botox and filler injections are also ideal for a high quality medical spa as they can be done in less than one hour with no significant visible wound. On top of these anti-aging and wrinkle treatments, laser hair removal is another commonly performed procedure in medical spas.

Most medical spas also tend to have a more clinical atmosphere than day spas even though they offer relaxing services like massages and body treatments. Some medical spas even have a wellness focus and include services like acupuncture, nutritional counseling and naturopathic doctor consultations. Medical spas are ideal for people who would like a more holistic experience. Unlike aesthetic clinics where you zip in and out after your treatment, customers at medical spas can choose to top up their laser treatments with a massage and enjoy the relaxing amenities of the spa. This new hybrid blends the best of two worlds – a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office.

The New Frontier Of Anti Aging

7 May 2010

Look young, feel young!

Age management is the new buzzword for anti aging. These are treatments are designed to tackle chronic fatigue, stress and other aging signs which are the by-products of a hectic city life.

Treatments available include:

1. Nutraceutical Consultation and Testing

Pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements are prescribed according to individual requirements. These can help increase energy levels, control blood sugar, prevent bone loss, reduce risk of cardiovascular disease and help the bodu cope with chronic stress.

2. Bio-idenical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Our bodies produce less of the essential hormones we need for optimal function as we age. Women and men undergo difficulties at menopause and these bio-identical hormones are customised and prescribed to slow the onward march of time.  It is suitable for both men and women and they are clinically indicated and supported by laboratory data.

3. Stress Hormones Evaluation

Stress increases the production of a stress hormone called the cortisol, a natural defence mechanism of the body. However, extended periods of elevated cortisol levels create many negative consequences such as inability to sleep well, heart problems and lowered immunity. An evaluation test, via a simple blood test, is suitable for individuals who are chronically fatigued. This helps to identify unhealthy levels of cortisol in your body and problems with your adrenal glands.

4. Oxidative Stress Test

Cells of the body are constantly under attack and damaged by free radicals which are produced naturally and environmentally. The reaction of free radicals with our lipids, proteins and DNA, known as oxidative stress on the body, can lead to cancer, heart disease, conditions related to the immune system, diseases and premature aging. You may also wish to consider an oxidative stress test if you have any pre-existing medical condition related to the above organs, have a poor diet, suffer from chronic stress, fatigue, allergies, sinus or smoke.
