We all want to look good in the hot summer sun, and BA Med Spa & Weight Loss Center can help – even if you don’t want to undergo an invasive procedure that requires downtime and discomfort. “Our busy clients want great results in less time, and we offer a variety of options,” said founder and managing partner Malissa Spacek.
As we all know, a healthy diet and regular exercise is the key to feeling great and looking slim and trim. But some of us need a little more than that. It’s called stubborn fat for a reason; it can be virtually impossible to lose those persistent muffin tops, love handles and belly pooches. BA Med Spa offers an innovative procedure for people who want to lose those stubborn bumps and bulges. CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical technology that targets and cools unwanted fat cells in a selected area to induce a noticeable, natural-looking reduction in fat. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, no anesthesia, no surgery and no downtime. Patients often spend time reading, working on their laptops or simply relaxing while undergoing this “lunchtime” treatment.
“CoolSculpting is a 60-minute procedure, so you can do it on your lunch break, and you can return to work right after,” said Malissa.
For clients wanting beautiful skin and a more youthful appearance, BA Med Spa provides a variety of laser treatments, dermal fillers, Botox, chemical peels and more. If you are just beginning to show signs of facial aging and desire improvement, but do not want to “go under the knife,” the large selection of injectable treatments is perfect to suit your needs. Injectables can be utilized during an office visit, rather than requiring a trip to the operating room. One highly popular treatment is a liquid face lift. “As we get older, we lose volume in our cheeks. The liquid face lift uses Voluma, an FDA-approved injectable gel by Allergan, to add volume to the cheeks,” says Dr. James Campbell of BA Med Spa. “Voluma gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to two years.”
To treat lines and wrinkles in the nasiolabial folds and marionettes, BA Med Spa recommends Artefill, a filler that requires fewer injections and is more long-lasting than others. “Treatments are completed during a simple, in-office procedure. They provide immediate results for wrinkle correction, allowing you to return to your normal daily activities,” says Dr. Campbell.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a fraction of your own blood that is drawn and spun down, then injected to create improved tissue health. Platelet rich plasma can help improve skin texture, lines and wrinkles. “Areas such as under the eyes and the neck can show dramatic improvement with PRP,” adds Dr. Campbell.
Ultherapy is a new type of non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. The only FDA-approved procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin – including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift – without disturbing the surface of the skin. With Ultherapy, you can go about your day after a single, 60 to 90 minute in-office procedure.
“Most of the procedures at BA Med Spa have an immediate effect, and it’s very satisfying when people look in the mirror and say, ‘Wow.’ Many people, especially women, have spent their whole lives doing things for everyone else, and they are so happy when they finally do something for themselves and change their looks for the better,” says Malissa.
BA Med Spa also offers quality, at-home skin care lines, including Obagi, Circadia and SkinMedica.
“You do not have to go under the knife to look fabulous!” says Malissa.
