Lose The Love Handles With Liposuction

Lose The Love Handles With Liposuction

The flank is notorious for accumulating fat. We have nicknamed these areas of excess fat “love handles” and they’re very common on both men and women. Love handles are a perfect example of fat that you just have no control over. Most people who develop love handles are simply pre-disposed to them. Others may find love handles develop over time as they get older or with pregnancy.

Fortunately, liposuction is a very effective treatment for love handles!

What To Expect From Liposuction For Love Handles

Liposuction removes fat from targeted areas via a hollow tube called a cannula. This tube is used to essentially loosen up and suck the fat out of the body. You can say goodbye to your love handles for good!

The ideal candidate for love handle liposuction is healthy with good skin elasticity and distinct areas of excess fat, also called fat pockets. It’s important to be at a healthy weight, such as no more than 20 pounds overweight, and be able to maintain that weight after the procedure. If you plan to lose or gain a large amount of weight at a future date, it would be better to wait until you have met that goal before having liposuction performed.

Liposuction on your love handles will slim your figure but it won’t change your body shape. You may also notice excess skin after the procedure, but over time it will shrink and smooth. After the procedure you may notice some soreness, swelling, and bruising, but this is normal and will fade with time. Even though you may feel sore, gentle movement is good and will be recommended as it promotes circulation. Following post-care treatment and instructions greatly helps with recovery after liposuction.

Liposuction won’t prevent you from gaining weight in the future, so don’t treat it as a cure-all for fat and expect that the weight won’t come back if you don’t take care of yourself. Following good nutrition and exercise habits will have you loving the results of your liposuction for many years to come!

Liposuction Of The Abdomen And Stomach

Liposuction Of The Abdomen And Stomach

The abdomen and stomach are the most common areas treated with liposuction. This area of the body tends to store superficial (subcutaneous) fat, which is located just below the skin, but above the abdominal muscles. Liposuction of the stomach and abdomen usually produces impressive results making the stomach and abs noticeably thinner and flatter.

Keep in mind that liposuction is not the same thing as a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a multi-step surgical procedure that removes both fat and skin to tighten abdominal muscles. In many cases, liposuction can produce equally as effective cosmetic results as a tummy tuck in a less invasive manner.

Candidates For Abdominal Liposuction

Liposuction works best on people who have localized fat deposits in their stomach and abdomen. These areas of fat are typically resistant to diet and exercise and are often the result of genetics. The best candidates are:

  • Physically fit
  • Within 20 pounds of their ideal weight
  • Have firm, elastic skin, and
  • Maintain weight stability.

Here’s why we look for these characteristics in liposuction candidates. First of all, the skin must shrink to adjust to the slimmer you. That’s why we look at skin elasticity prior to the procedure. Secondly, liposuction results are permanent, but only if your weight remains stable. Losing or gaining a significant amount of weight will affect results.

What To Expect From Liposuction

Liposuction is a great way to achieve a slimmer look, but it won’t change the shape of your body. It’s not a substitute for a healthy diet and regular exercise, but it can help you feel better about your body and get rid of a stubborn muffin top or spare tire.

During the procedure, your physician will use a local anesthetic to make small incisions near the areas to be targeted. Then a thin, hollow tube called a cannula is used to loosen and remove fat deposits. After the procedure, you may feel minor soreness and discomfort for up to 72 hours. This pain is similar to the pain of sore muscles after a workout and can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. There is typically no restriction on your activities after the first 24 hours.

We always develop a post-care treatment plan for every liposuction patient. The post-care plan will help ensure proper healing and ease recovery.

April Spring Cleaning Event a Huge Success

April Spring Cleaning Event a Huge Success

On April 24, we tried something new at EnLighten Skin & Body MedSpa. We held an open house format spring cleaning event! No, we didn’t ask our clients to come in and clean the medspa! This one-day event focused on face and body treatments and “cleaning out” old skincare products. Refreshments were served, there were gifts and giveaways, and the entire day had a fresh and energetic vibe.

Cleaning House

We spend so much time getting our home in order and ready for summer every spring that we thought, “What about taking care of ourselves? What can we do to get ourselves ready for summer?” Our first thought was to get rid of old, outdated, or ineffective skincare products. That achieves the dual goal of cleaning up the house and improving our skincare routine!

We offered participants 50% off our skincare product lines when they traded in an old skincare product. To make sure they found a great new product, we included free product consultations.

Specials Galore

Spring is a great time to try something new and it’s an even better time to rid your skin of winter’s evidence, like dry skin. Building on our theme of spring cleaning, we ran several treatment specials:

  • $150 Ultimate Treatment Package
  • $150 Hydrafacial with LED light. Add additional areas for $50 each. Choose from hands, chest, back, eyes , or lips
  • $150 Refresh Glow and Plump Dermablading & Coollifting combo
  • $150 Cellulite or Fat Reduction combo ultrasound treatment
  • $150 Body Skin Tightening

Patients who took advantage of these specials walked out feeling refreshed, renewed, and ready for summer!

Don’t Miss Future MedSpa Events

We are so happy with the success of this event that we’re already planning more events for the future! Any time we can help our clients take better care of and feel better in their skin, we’ll do it!

5 Of Our Most Popular Medspa Services

5 Of Our Most Popular Medspa Services

If you’ve ever thought about visiting EnLighten Skin & Body MedSpa but have been held back by indecision about what treatment to receive, this is the post for you! We’ll take a look at 5 of our most popular medspa services to give you an idea of what kinds of treatments are available and what kinds of conditions they can address.

5 Popular Medspa Services

  1. Chemical Peels. Our medical grade chemical peels rejuvenate the skin, removing signs of sun and environmental damage, smoothing rough or wrinkled skin, and improving the appearance of acne scars. Peels can be applied to the hands or face to remove dead skin cells and reveal fresh skin.
  2. HydraFacial®. The HydraFacial® is an all-in-one skin resurfacing procedure. Similar to a chemical peel, but more suitable for sensitive skin, this treatment combines cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration into one gentle process. The end result is smoother skin without any redness or discomfort.
  3. Wrinkle treatments. Wrinkle treatments include fillers like Botox® and others as well as microneedling to combat these early signs of aging. Wrinkle treatments are often used on conjunction with other medspa services like microdermabrasion or peels to create a more youthful look.
  4. LED skin treatments. Using special LED lights, we are able to deliver highly targeted treatment of problem areas to stimulate collagen production. LED light therapies can combat wrinkles and other signs of aging, fade dark spots, reduce the appearance of scars, treat inflammation and redness, and promote gentle healing.
  5. Cellulite treatments. Cellulite is one of those conditions that affects women of all ages and all sizes. We offer a few different ways to manage cellulite including radio frequency treatments, ultrasound, and Cellfina. All treatments target underlying structural issues that cause cellulite. By loosening tight bands, we can release taut skin and smooth the dimpling we know as cellulite.

There you have it! Five of our most popular skin and body care services. If you’re still unsure about what kind of treatment is best for your skincare needs, arrange a consultation at EnLighten Skin & Body MedSpa. We would be happy to discuss your skin care concerns and recommend a course of action that will help you achieve your goals. Call 407-857-5476 or schedule a consultation online right now!

Is Breast Augmentation Right For You?

Is Breast Augmentation Right For You?

Breast augmentation is a deeply personal procedure and many women wonder if it is right for them. There is no right or wrong answer to this. It depends on what you want to achieve through the procedure and who you are doing it for.

Women who are happiest with the procedure are those who do it for themselves, not because someone else wants them to have it done. Some of these women have always been unhappy with their breasts. Others have lost a lot of weight and need some help restoring the shape of their breasts. Still others are recovering from mastectomies, breast-feeding, or medical procedures and just want breasts they can feel proud of again.

Whatever your reasons for wanting breast augmentation there are several things to consider before having the procedure done.

What To Consider Prior To Breast Augmentation

  • Overall Health. One of the first considerations you’ll have to take into account is whether or not you are healthy enough to have the procedure done. Women should be healthy, not pregnant and not breastfeeding. Breasts must be fully developed and you should have realistic expectations.
  • Implants or Fat Transfer. You have the choice is getting saline or silicone implants or undergoing a fat transfer procedure to augment your breasts. Fat transfers use liposuction to remove fat from your body. The fat is processed and then injected into the breasts. It is a more natural approach, but limits you to an increase of just two cup sizes.
  • Future Breastfeeding. It is possible to undergo breast augmentation and still breastfeed in the future, but you need to make this decision prior to the procedure since it will impact implant choice, incision location, and placement.
  • Your Goals. It is important to have realistic goals and expectations for the procedure. For example, augmentation will not fix sagging breasts. If that is your goal a breast lift is a better choice. On the other hand, augmentation is a good choice is you want to correct asymmetrical breasts or enhance volume and shape of existing breasts.
  • It’s a Commitment. Most women will need to have implants replaced at some point in the future. You may need to attend annual check-ups and perform monthly self-exams and might need a breast lift at some point in the future to retain your shape.
  • Recovery Takes Time. Your breasts will be sore, swollen, and bruised right after surgery. It will take several weeks to recover and once you do, you may need to undergo additional procedures to adjust the implants to their proper position.

Enlighten Medspa Is Here To Answer Your Breast Augmentation Questions

These are just a few of the things we recommend women take into consideration when thinking about breast augmentation. If you are interested in learning more about the procedure and whether or not you are a good candidate, Enlighten Skin & Body Medspa at 407-857-5476 or schedule a consultation online.

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.

As we transition into spring and summer as well as wedding season, we just wanted to provide some advice to schedule your service sooner rather than later if you want to be looking your best by a certain date.

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.

Contact EnLighten Skin & Body Medspa at 407-857-5476 or schedule a consultation online to book an appointment.
