Many of us seek to improve our physical appearance at all costs. However, we are terrified by the idea of having to submit to the scalpel for long hours, so we prefer to do it in the most natural way possible. Apart from exercise and good nutrition, there are also effective procedures that can be carried out outside the operating room that we can take into account.
Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are a therapeutic way to improve the appearance of the skin without surgery, using techniques that are specifically tailored to the condition of the patient's skin. Among these treatments are medical facials, cellulite reduction treatments, chemical peels, laser hair removal, injectable treatments, liquid face lift, among others.
In addition, there are other more advanced procedures such as SilkPeel, an innovative procedure that instantly revitalizes and hydrates the skin that is used to combat acne and damage caused by environmental pollution. For its part, microdermabrasion consists of a medical device for all types of skin, which casts a series of very fine crystals that exfoliate the skin to make it look smooth, fresh and radiant. While phototherapy is a procedure that is carried out by means of a series of concentrated pulses of light that penetrate the skin and destroy acne.
However, we must remember to be very careful when looking for a center that provides us with this type of treatment since the skin of the Latin woman is very delicate and does not necessarily react in the same way as other ethnic groups. Dr. Jeffrey Yager, an accredited plastic surgeon and founder of YSPA in New York, tells us: “The skin of Latinas is not only different in composition, but also in how it responds to treatments. It is essential for every woman that her skin is treated by professionals, who understand her skin type and who knows her needs. In addition, it is important that when deciding on a place where you will undergo a treatment, you want this to be a medi-spa”.
Medi-spas are offices staffed by certified professionals but supervised by an accredited healthcare professional who can personally attend to your case during the process and ensure your progress. Being a medically supervised center, it can offer prescription medications and skin care products, as well as other types of treatments that many regular spas cannot offer because they are not licensed. This provides a greater variety of potentially effective options, as well as the ability to solve more complicated cosmetic problems.
