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. Cellfina® results continue to improve over time so we recommend early treatment to give your skin time to recover and improve.

Contact Enlighten Skin & Body Medspa at 407-857-5476 or schedule a consultation online to learn more about the Cellfina® system.

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!

The Vampire Facial: Why It’s All The Rage

Vampire Facials are all the rage these days. Thanks to celebrity endorsements and its all-natural process, the facial rejuvenation treatment has gained a foothold across the country and demand is soaring!

There are several things that make the Vampire Facial so popular:

  • It uses only your own blood’s platelets to rejuvenate the skin.
  • It works on a variety of conditions from scars and wrinkling to hair loss and skin sagging.
  • It is a natural alternative to dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra.
  • It has a medical basis in orthopedics and maxillofacial treatment where it was first used to stimulate new cell growth.

Technically known as the Selphyl Vampire Facial, the procedure stimulates new cell development and collagen production. In essence, the procedure prompts your skin to renew itself!

How It Works

Selphyl Vampire Facials are facial fillers. They restore volume and enhance facial contouring using platelets from your own blood. This minimizes the risk of an adverse reaction, making the treatment accessible to people who have sensitive skin.

The treatment begins with our doctors drawing a small tube of blood from your arm. The blood cells are then separated from the platelets and fibrin. This leaves us with a concentrated gel that is then injected into areas of concern such as wrinkles, sagging skin, etc. The body recognizes the substance as components of your own blood, which stimulates the development of new skin cells. It works in much the same way that a cut or wound stimulates new skin and cellular growth. When placed appropriately, the new cells fill out lines and hollow areas giving the skin a fresher, more youthful look.

Visit our Selphyl Vampire Facial page to learn more about the treatment.
