What Is A Medspa?

What Is A Medspa?

EnLighten Skin & Body MedSpa is often confused with a traditional day spa service. Day spa services are more like salons where you may receive a clarifying facial, a relaxing massage, or nail services. Medspa services are different.

Medical Grade Procedures

The biggest difference between the two spas is in the type of procedures offered. Medspa procedures are “medical grade” aesthetic procedures administered by trained medical technicians. Medspas operate under a physician director and include services such as liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lifts, breast augmentation, and cellulite treatments as well as Botox and fillers, skin tightening treatments, and laser resurfacing to manage acne scars, wrinkles, or loose skin.

You’ll also be able to purchase medical grade skin care products at a medspa, which are stronger and more effective than what you can buy off the shelf. This combination of medical-grade care and post-care products provide better, more long-lasting results than a typical day spa service.

Helpful Advice And Education

Since medspas are staffed by trained medical professionals and physicians, you can expect “doctor-level” care and advice. Your provider will take the time to understand your concerns and recommend a best course of action to achieve your objectives. He or she will educate you on your skin’s condition or need and provide helpful advice on how to repair damage that has been done and prevent future damage. You’ll probably feel like you’re talking to a doctor more than a cosmetic services provider – and you should! Medspa services are more like health care programs and support for maintaining healthy skin and a healthy body than light cosmetic procedures.

A Pampered Environment

The environment at a medspa is very much the same as a traditional day spa. At EnLighten we strive to create a luxurious, relaxing environment so you can feel at ease during your procedure and leave feeling pampered and refreshed. This gives us the appearance of a day spa…until you look at our services. With just once glance, you’ll see that our services are very different from a day spa.

Plan MedSpa Services Ahead For Best Results

Plan MedSpa Services Ahead For Best Results

It’s true that our medspa services can delivery outstanding results, but we have to provide a word of caution – many results are not immediate! It can take several days or even weeks or months for your body to fully recover and for you to see the true effects of your procedure.

Plan Ahead For Best Results

We can’t stress enough that planning ahead for medspa services is crucial! Don’t plan a service during the week and expect to be looking 100% by the weekend. Our services are more intense than traditional spa services you might receive like a facial or Botox injection. Several procedures continue to work after you leave our clinic. Selphyl Vampire Facials, for example, actually prompt your body to produce new cells and collagen. Stimulating the body in this manner is one reason why our results are so long-lasting, but it is also why it takes time for you to see a change. Your body first has to recover from the service, then begin the process of building new cells.

Follow this advice for best results of your EnLighten medspa service:

  • Schedule early. EnLighten’s services are long-lasting. You don’t have to worry about scheduling your service too early and the effects wearing off. Scheduling your service several weeks to months ahead of your specified date is perfectly fine. If you are approaching your date and aren’t seeing the results you expected or feel the effects have worn off already, come in and see us. We’ll check your progress and see if there is something we can do to give you the added boost you’re looking for.
  • Give your body time to heal. Don’t push your body. Many procedures can leave you feeling achy, bruised, or uncomfortable. That’s perfectly normal and expected. Depending on the procedure you may be dealing with swelling, bruising, or sore injection sites. You know your body best. If you are prone to bruising or suffer sore injection sites for days afterward, plan to go easy on your body while you recover.

Get Your Beach Body Back With Cellulite Treatments From Enlighten Med Spa

Get Your Beach Body Back With Cellulite Treatments From Enlighten Med Spa

Spring is almost here and Summer will be here before we know it! That means it’s time to hit the beach and enjoy all that the season has to offer! If the idea has you cringing because of unsightly cellulite, don’t worry! Place a call to EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa and we’ll help you look your beach best!

Cellulite is a stubborn condition where deep fat deposits affect the appearance of the skin, giving it a dimpled, lumpy look. It is commonly found on the thighs and hips, but can be found on the arms and stomach as well. It’s often hereditary and affects women more often than men, though both genders do struggle with the condition.

We focus on treatments that destroy fat cells and allow the body to flush the destroyed cells naturally through the lymphatic system. All treatments are non-invasive, require no incisions, and have very little downtime.

Treatments That Fight Cellulite

  • Accent Radio Frequency Treatment Dual-Layer RF Thermotherapy. Yes, we know it’s a mouthful, but RF Treatment is a very effective way to fight cellulite. The procedure uses RF energy to heat fatty layers beneath the skin, essentially melting the fat. This has the effect of tightening tissues and improving blood circulation, helping to drain fatty deposits through the lymphatic system.
  • Ultrasound Cavitation. Using low frequency ultrasound waves, we are able to create heat and pressure waves that break down fat cells. The broken down cells are then flushed from the body naturally through the lymphatic system. This can help tighten and tone skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Find Out If Cellulite Treatment Is Right For You

If cellulite has you avoiding the beach and summer outfits, schedule an appointment at EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa. Our doctors would be happy to meet with you to examine your cellulite and determine if our treatments are right for you.

Liposuction Vs. Liposculpture: Which Procedure Is Right For You?

Liposuction Vs. Liposculpture: Which Procedure Is Right For You?

Enlighten Skin & Body Medspa offers both liposuction and liposculpting procedures which can be confusing if you don’t know what each procedure does.

The most basic way to explain the difference between the two procedures is this:

  • Liposuction removes large amounts of unwanted fat from a general area.
  • Liposculpture removes smaller, more targeted areas of fat to contour the body.

Both procedures aim to reduce the amount of unwanted fat on a person, but they differ in the level of refinement used to achieve the reduction.

Many people undergo liposuction to remove excess fat and then have a liposculpting procedure done to refine those areas that have been treated. Others don’t need liposuction so much as they need just a little bit of refinement in a few select areas; these patients may be able to skip the liposuction process and go right to liposculpting.

More About Liposuction

Liposuction is a great way to “debulk” the body. If you have concerns about the overall size and shape of a certain area or areas, liposuction is an excellent choice. The doctors at EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa are skilled at removing fat via liposuction in ways that improve the over all look and shape of the body.

More About Liposculpting

If you want to achieve a more toned or athletic appearance, liposculpting is a better choice. We like to explain liposculpting as being similar to the sculpting artists may do to clay or stone creations. Once the overall shape has been revealed, such as through liposuction, small, very precise and targeted treatments can remove further unwanted areas of fat to reveal the muscles underneath or to provide even more refined contouring. Think of chiseling (liposuction) vs. filing (liposculpture).

Important Points To Consider

Do not expect to come out of your procedure looking completely toned, tightened, and bikini-ready. You will very likely have some areas of skin sagging after your procedure. With proper healing time and aftercare treatments, this skin will eventually tighten over time revealing your new body.

Discuss Your Options With A Doctor At EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa

The best way to determine which procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation at EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa. You’ll meet with one of our doctors where you can discuss your needs and wants and receive advice on which procedure would best meet your needs.

Selphyl Vampire Facial | EnLighten Medspa | Orlando

For Natural Rejuvenation, Selphyl Vampire Facial Is A Top Anti-Aging Treatment

We are very excited about the results we’ve seen from the Selphyl “Vampire” Facials that we have performed at our medspa! These anti-aging treatments are quickly becoming both a staff and customer favorite. Read on to see why!

5 Things We Love About Vampire Facials

Selphyl facials have become a popular anti-aging treatment that not only decreases the appearance or wrinkles and lines, but can help prevent them as well. The process relies on the patient’s own blood to create a platelet-rich solution that is then injected back into select spots on the face and neck. Learn more about Selphyl vampire facials, here.

Besides its’ anti-aging effects, there are plenty of other reasons we like Selphyl facials:

  1. They Are All-Natural. One of the things we love the most about Selphyl facials is that they don’t use any type of synthetic or man-made ingredients, which makes the chances of an allergic reaction very low. The process uses the patients’ own blood platelets and fibrin to restore and rejuvenate skin.


  1. They Produce Long-Lasting Effects. Vampire facials trigger the production of new cells and collagen, allowing the body to produce its’ own “fillers”. Not only is the result more natural-looking, it is also longer-lasting than synthetic filler options.


  1. The Procedure is Quick and Easy. An in-office procedure, Selphyl facials take just 20 minutes with no downtime. After treatment, the body continues to produce collagen and cell growth fro several weeks.


  1. Selphyl Has a Strong Foundation in Medicine. Selphyl actually began as a treatment for wound healing that has evolved into treatment for skin conditions and anti-aging treatments.


  1. It is Used to Treat a Variety of Conditions and Concerns. Selphyl isn’t only an anti-aging treatment. It can be used to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and folds but also to combat skin depressions and acne scars, augment the cheeks, smooth skin under the eyes, and even fight hair loss.

Experience A Selphyl Vampire Facial Yourself At EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa

Intrigued by the “vampire” facial? Been wanting to try an anti-aging solution but wary of using synthetic ingredients? A Selphyl facial is just the thing! Contact EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa at 407-857-5476 to make an appointment today!

Threadlift Procedure | Non-Invasive Facelift | Orlando

Threadlifts: Perfect For Correcting Sagging Neck And Jaw Skin

Does it seem like all anti-aging solutions target lines and wrinkles on the forehead or around the eyes and mouth? What about the lower part of the face? Are there any non-surgical treatments to combat sagging skin around the jaws and neck? We’re happy to report, that Yes, there is! Threadlifts are a relatively new minimally-invasive procedure that is perfect for the lower part of the face and the neck.

The Challenges Of The Lower Part Of The Face

The lower face, jawline, and neck are subject to the same aging effects as the rest of the face, but because of their position, the effect of gravity often exacerbate the appearance of thin skin and sagging. It’s a challenging spot to treat with fillers like Botox or Juvaderm, which is why a traditional facelift has been the treatment of choice until now. Surgical facelifts are expensive and require quite a bit of recovery time. Plus, the changes to the face can be obvious and more noticeable than the patient desires.

Threadlifts combat these aging challenges by lifting, pulling, and tightening the skin at the subdermal level. No incisions or cuts are needed. Recovery time is practically non-existent and the threads used are surgical-grade and dissolvable. Learn more about our Threadlift procedure, here.

Are Threadlifts Right For You? Contact EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa Today To Find Out!

If you are tired of sagging, crepey, skin around the jaw and neck and want to avoid a full facelift, contact us to see if you are a candidate for Threadlifts. Threadlifts can also be used on the brows, cheeks, upper arms, stomach, and thighs to lift loose skin.

Contact EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa at 407-857-5476 to arrange a consultation and find out if Threadlifts are right for you!

Cellfina Treatment FAQs | Orlando Cellulite Treatment

FAQs About Cellfina® Cellulite Treatment

Cellfina® is a hot, new cellulite treatment that has everyone talking – and for good reason! Just one hour-long, in-office treatment can keep cellulite at bay for years! It works by targeting tight bands of tissue under the skin. These tight bands pull the skin down, creating the dimpled texturing of cellulite. By loosening those bands through the Cellfina® System, elasticity is restored and the skin is able to smooth itself out.

Here’s what you need to know about Cellfina®.

Cellfina® FAQs

  • What Is Involved In The Procedure? The simple, in-office procedure targets each dimpled area individually. A numbing agent is applied and thin needle threaded under the skin to loosen the fibrous bands and release the tension causing cellulite dimples.
  • When Will I See Results? Results are visible as soon as swelling and bruising (if any) fade, perhaps as soon as 3 days post-treatment.
  • How Long Do Results Last? Results are incredibly long-lasting, at least 3 years in most cases.
  • What Side Effects Are There? Side effects are non-existent or minimal. The most commonly reported side effects are minor discomfort, swelling and/or bruising at the treatment site, but those discomforts fade quickly. Most people go on with their normal day right away.
  • How long does the procedure take? Procedures are offered as one-hour in-office appointments. During that time, the physician is typically able to treat 20-30 individual dimples.
  • Am I A Candidate? The only way to know for sure if Cellfina® can help you is to schedule a consultation with one of our providers. In general, Cellfina® is most effective when patients are not significantly overweight and have good skin tone.
  • Is It Covered By Insurance? Right now, Cellfina® is not covered by health insurance plans, but we do offer finance options.

Learn More About Cellfina®. Contact EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa Today

Summer will be here before you know it. If you’re dreading shorts and swimsuits due to cellulite, contact us for a consultation. Cellfina® may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Medical Grade Chemical Peels | Exfoliating Peels & Treatments

Are You A Candidate For A Medical Grade Chemical Peel?

Medical grade chemical peels are a great first step in fighting visible signs of aging on the face and neck. More effective than facials but less invasive than cosmetic surgery, medical grade chemical peels hit that sweet spot of delivering impressive results without being obvious.

These are strong exfoliation treatments that remove dead skin cells. This helps to clarify the skin and addresses many problem spots like: fine lines, sun damage, brown spots, freckles, and acne scars. The treatment actually stimulates the skin to renew itself and promotes the production of collagen.

Don’t let the term “medical grade” scare you. Peels are extremely controlled treatments that are customized to your skin’s needs and sensitivities. They are available in different strengths and are performed as an outpatient procedure. After a treatment, skin looks tighter, brighter, and younger.

Who Can Benefit From A Medical Grade Chemical Peel?

Truly? Anyone can benefit from a medical grade chemical peel! Superficial chemical peels can help clear pores and brighten skin while deeper peels can be used to address problem areas like fine lines and acne. Living here in Florida, most people have suffered some kind of sun damage, which a chemical peel can help to combat.

Consultation with a trained EnLighten Medspa esthician is the best way determine how a chemical peel can help you achieve your skincare goals and what kind of peel is needed. Sometimes a single peel is enough to achieve your desired results; at other times more than one treatment is needed.

If you think your skin can use a pick-me-up, contact EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa to learn more about our medical grade chemical peels and find out if they are right for you!
