Procedures for a Summer Body

Summer is synonymous with swimsuits, shorts, and tanks. With the weather warming up, you’ll be showing more skin and showing off your body. While working out and eating right can help you achieve your aesthetic goals, some cosmetic procedures can take your body to the next level just in time for the summer festivities. While some procedures may have major recovery times, there are some that you can quickly bounce back from before the summer comes to an end. Below you will find some of the most common procedures for a summer body.

Procedures for a Summer Body

While it always is best to start with summer body workouts. there are some procedures that help you along your way.

Liposuction:

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that removes fat from one’s body. This usually targets the fat stubbornly remains after regular diet and exercise. The most common areas of the body that people get liposuction include the back, chest, cheeks, neck, upper arms, hips, or thighs. The problem areas that have extra fat deposits or bulges can be smoothed away. The recovery time is minimal, and there is usually little to no scarring.

Bodytite:

This is often done in conjunction with liposuction, but it can also be an individual treatment. This treatment can tighten sagging skin, reduce unwelcome lumps, bulges, and curves without any incisions. BodyTite Santa Barbara is non-invasive, quick, and doesn’t require any downtime. Results vary from person to person, and multiple treatments are the most effective for results.

Laser Hair Removal:

If you want to wear that high-cut swimsuit, laser hair removal is the right treatment for you. Laser hair removal uses concentrated light to impact your actual hair follicles. The follicles are small cavities in your skin where the hair grows out of. The procedure is fast and should not take more than one hour. You will experience minimal to no pain as it is often described as somewhere between the pain you feel shaving and getting a wax. We encourage multiple treatments to ensure your hair doesn’t grow back.

Spider Vein Treatment:

Spider veins are small, red, purple, and blue vessels that twist and turn on your leg, chest, or face. They are easily visible through the skin. Various factors can cause them, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get rid of them. Depending on the severity, there are both surgical and non-surgical options. A board-certified plastic surgeon will be able to assess and diagnose your veins and provide you with the most effective treatment options.

Botox:

While this treatment is great all year round, summer is a great time for some overall rejuvenation. Botox treatments can temporarily paralyze the muscles in your face, making sure your fine lines don’t become deep wrinkles. The treatment takes roughly thirty minutes, and there is little to no downtime.

Fillers:

Dermal fillers can help diminish facial lines and restore the natural volume in your face. Natural aging can cause your face to lose fat, which means that your facial muscles are closer to the surface of your facial skin. This can make your lines and creases much more visible. Your skin also stretches as you age, which can add to the loss of volume in your face. This is an excellent option as its fast with little to no downtime.
