Five Quick Medispa Treatments for Bathing Suit Season

June 17, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
LOUISVILLE, KY Summer is finally here and it's time to hit the pool! Don't worry if you are not completely ready for bathing suit season. Dr. Lee Corbett, a highly credentialed Louisville plastic surgeon who is skilled in the latest technology and techniques, offers five tips on last-minute medispa treatments that will have you bikini-ready by the weekend.

Your Bikini Waxing Unwanted hair is perhaps the biggest beach faux pas, whether it's an unattractive hairy back or stubble along the bikini line and armpits. Instead of spending the summer in the shower shaving, try waxing, which removes quickly from the bikini line, armpits, back, chest and legs (as well as on the face). Results can last 2-4 and sometimes even 3-6 weeks, depending on how fast a client's hair grows.

Clear Up Skin Acne on the back, chest and face is a big summer problem because suntan oils and sweat can clog up pores. There are several treatments available that can improve acne and prevent future breakouts, ranging from chemical peels to detoxifying facials and laser treatments. It's also smart to avoid oil-based suntan lotions and makeup.

Get Rid of Spider Veins Spider veins on the legs and face are as aging as wrinkles, but they can be treated by laser without any painful injections. Many patients see significant results after just one treatment, but multiple treatments may be necessary for larger veins.

Skin Tightening Loose, sagging or wrinkled skin can appear even more pronounced under harsh daytime sunlight, making many sunbathers self-conscious. There are several lasers that can effectively tighten the skin, whether it's a saggy jaw line and neck or loose skin around the abdomen and arms.

Reduce Cellulite VelaShape is the first FDA-cleared platform for cellulite reduction. It can treat such cellulite-prone areas as the back of the thighs, outer thighs, hips, buttocks, saddlebags, love handles and stomach. Most patients see results in four to six 30-minute sessions. So schedule an appointment well in advance before an important vacation.
