New Year, New You: Look Even Better With These Skin Treatments

Everyone always says it every year, but 2014 has really gone by so fast. In a matter of hours, we’ll be ringing in a new year. Have you accomplished some of your resolutions? That’s great if you did, and it’s still fine if you didn’t. New Year resolutions are always about improving yourself or your circumstances. It’s a good time to try to set goals to live and look better than the year before.

Why not start with making beauty resolutions to have even better skin for 2015? Whether that means getting rid of wrinkles, hair or tattoos you don’t want, we have a list of treatments you should try out. Below are non-surgical treatments that can firm and clear up your skin so you look awesome all year round.

When Botox first emerged a few decades ago, many people were skeptical of the treatment. “Is it safe?” “Won’t it just make my face look frozen?” Patients and the media frequently asked these questions. There’s no doubt that some people are still reserved about Botox, but the attitude towards it is much more relaxed today with so much information available now. And plus, it’s the most popular non-surgical treatment year after year.

Botox, a purified protein named botulinum toxin A, relaxes muscle areas by blocking nerves impulses which trigger contractions. This helps to soften wrinkles on your face. Results usually last up to 6 months.

It’s like maintenance—a few injections of Botox here and there will keep unwanted wrinkles and lines away. It’s pretty common for people in their 20s to get Botox to prevent wrinkles from showing up in the first place. These treatments have been called “pre-juvenation”.

Laser Hair Removal

Who doesn’t like smooth skin? It’s a hassle to constantly shave and wax every couple of days and weeks. Maybe you’re frustrated with always busting out the razors to scrape away hair during the summer. Laser hair removal is a way to quit that routine for good. 

With faster and better lasers, men can get the hair on their backs removed within 20 minutes. Hair on a woman’s whole body could be removed within that same amount of time. To permanently remove 80% of the hair, patients should expect to have 4-5 laser hair removal sessions. Different lasers and wavelengths are used depending on your skin and hair type.

Skin Tightening For Your Body and Face

With age and genetics comes droopy skin. Maybe you’ve noticed that your neck or cheeks don’t look as firm and tight as they did before. SpaMedica is equipped with several non-surgical treatments that combat loose skin. These treatments can treat your face or different areas on your body.

Exilis is one of the available non-surgical fat reduction and skin tightening treatments to firm up your body. It’s a device that uses radiofrequency to contour your body and reduce fat without surgical intervention. Drop in the clinic once a week for 4-6 weeks and after that, you’ll see improvement in your figure and skin. These treatments are great alternative options for people who don’t want to deal with recovery time or surgery like liposuction and tummy tucks.


If a facelift is out of the question for you, then be happy that the Pan G Lift is an amazing non-surgical alternative to firm up your skin. It’s a series of treatments that uses radiofrequency energy, ultrasound and more to lift your face and neck without any need for cuts. 

The Pan G Lift lifts up droopy brows, cheeks, jowls and neck—it also targets other skin concerns such as wrinkles and spider veins. Each treatment lasts for one hour. Right after your appointment, you can go back to work or normal activities. It’s that simple.  

Laser Tattoo Removal

So what if wrinkles or droopiness isn’t even your concern? Maybe getting rid of a tattoo is on your mind. Starting off the New Year by erasing an embarrassing or poorly designed tattoo is a pretty good way to renew yourself in 2015. Long gone is the idea that tattoos are forever; that’s far from the case now with the booming laser tattoo removal industry. 

The PicoSure laser is the latest laser in the industry that’s annihilating tattoos better and faster than before. With the PicoSure, the amount of treatments you’ll need is cut dramatically compared to other lasers. After 4 treatments, you can see 90% of your tattoo cleared. Compare that number to older lasers that require up to 16 treatments for tattoo clearance.
