Post-Lipo Care Service: Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

Darren Kincaid - Thursday, April 30, 2020
Dream Spa Medical -  Laser Vein Treatment, Boston, Canton, MA

Areas in and around a liposuction-treated area can sometimes develop post-procedure lumps. This is common and natural side effect. In addition, cannula tends to form grooves which causes pooling of fluids, contributing to swelling of the tissue. In order to let the fluid flow into the lymph vessels and help relieve pain and swelling, Dream Spa Medical utilizes a combination of Ultrasonic Cavitation technology and manual techniques to perform the Lymphatic Drainage Treatment.

Lymphatic Drainage is a therapeutic procedure designed specifically to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. The process of lymphatic drainage allows for your body to release that liquid accumulated under the skin and in turn reduce your healing time and diminish pain. It is virtually painless, and employs a deep and constant pressure throughout the area intervened, allowing the main channels “lymph nodes”, to carry and gradually evacuate all liquid remaining after surgery.

Post Operative Lymphatic Drainage massage is also called lymphatic massage, lymph massage, post liposuction massage or post-lipo care. This procedure is an exceptionally light stimulation to the body that encourages lymph flow. Post-Surgical Lymphatic Drainage is good for detoxification, edema, pre- and post-plastic surgery and post-liposuction. It can also help with cellulite treatments, fibrosis (lumps that form under the skin about one to two weeks after a surgical procedure), scar tissue, spider veins, and reduce swelling after cosmetic facelift or blepharoplasty.

Ultrasound helps reduce inflammation in the affected areas while the lymphatic massage serves to drain all the retained liquid from those areas. That liquid will later be eliminated from your body through your urine. In addition, Ultrasonic Therapy forces a powerful sound wave to the fat cell membranes. The fat cell membrane succumbs to the pressure, is reduced to liquid and is expelled through the body’s normal metabolic method. By combining lymphatic drainage massage with ultrasound waves and cavitation, heat is generated and allows the fibrosis or hardened tissue to easily break up and move through your lymph system. A combination that leads to rapid and efficient recovery.

Get Rid of Varicose Veins with Cultura Excel Vein Therapy

Darren Kincaid - Monday, April 20, 2020
Dream Spa Medical -  Laser Vein Treatment, Boston, Canton, MA

Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and unsightly veins that appear mostly in the lower extremities. They appear bluish-purple in color which are highly visible and unsightly. While not considered a major health risk, the condition can be attributed to dysfunction of bicuspid valves which leads to pooling of blood in a vein making it appear swollen. Too much pressure due to blood pooling leads to branching out of varicose veins.

If you have veins that show and feel self-conscious about your legs or avoid wearing shorts, skirts, or bathing suits to hide your legs, you may be the perfect candidate for Cutera Excel Vein Therapy.

Today, men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to the Cutera Excel. No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, and a longer wavelength, the Cutera Excel can safely and effectively treat both tiny superficial face veins and deeper blue leg veins on men and women of all skin tones. How does Excel Vein Therapy work?

The Cutera Excel systems deliver pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin's surface, where it should be.

Your Feet Work Hard for You – They Deserve Babying

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 14, 2020
Dream Spa Medical -  Baby Foot Peeling Mask

Far too many of you pay far too little attention to your feet. Foot care is not simply a matter of aesthetics. Foot care should be an integral part of every person’s overall health care plan. Today, we’re going to cover the subject of a fantastic product, foot peeling masks. Below are just some of the benefits of using this products:

Dry, Cracked Feet Are Painful

Footwear feels uncomfortable or painful when you have cracks and callouses on your feet. Dry feet can bleed because of friction. Baby foot peeling mask removes rough skin layers of the feet and promoting new soft skin to emerge.

Dry, Cracked Feet Are Unattractive

Cracks and fissures in the soles are very unpleasant to look at. This also prevents you to wear some footwear that are unable to cover the imperfections. On top of that, it is such a turn off to see your feet flaking off and shedding skin.

Dry, Cracked Feet Can Produce Bad Odor

Dirt can get into the fissures of your skin and lodge into it. Eventually, this can invite bad germs that produce foot odor. Foot Peeling Masks help eliminate foot odor as the rough skin layers are removed to reveal fresh soft skin.

Although the use of this product feels like pampering, it is so much more than that. It’s a health and wellness exercise that we want you to experience. Contact Dream Spa Medical to learn more about this product.

Clarisonic Sonic Exfoliator For Clear, Radiant Skin

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 31, 2020
Dream Spa Medical -  Clarisonic Sonic Exfoliator

Cell rejuvenation slows with age. The body naturally sheds off old skin cells to clear the path for new. As we age, the decrease in the body’s efficiency in shedding old skin cells results in a build-up that makes the skin appear dry, dull and rough. To add to the negativity of this process, when dead skin mixes with the body’s natural oils, the dead cells get trapped in pores and can result in breakouts. A thorough exfoliation will aid your skin to rid itself of the dead skin cells that clog your pores, allowing new cells to emerge.

Using Clarisonic Sonic Exfoliator will make your skin exfoliating routine easier. It's the #1 dermatologist recommended facial cleansing device. Its patented technology activates the power of water to gently clear away what otherwise may hide deep inside pores. Clarisonic gives you and your skin an utterly fresh start.

Clarisonic has the power to remove 30x more* age-accelerating pollutants than manual cleansing.

The Clarisonic Sonic Method is clinically proven to amplify results of both professional treatments and daily skincare regimens. The sonic technology harnesses a patented range of sonic frequency to drive oscillation between 200 to 350 movements per second, working with skin's natural elasticity to beautifully transform skin's texture and appearance.

How To Keep Your Skin Healthy While Indoor Social Distancing

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 13, 2020

Social distancing is having a dramatic effect on everybody’s psyche. It’s having an effect on our skin as well. Although spending more time indoors might have the positive effect of reducing sun exposure, the radical shift in our routine, activity and diet is negatively impacting our skin. Without proper skincare, this could lead to facial breakouts, skin blemishes and escalates skin aging process.

Here are some tips you can apply during these trying days of “social distancing”:

Manage Stress

This is indeed a stressful time for everyone. It is not just the virus that makes us feeling worried, but also the mounting socio-economic impact we are experiencing right now while we try to contain the virus. More so, those people who have been isolated could most likely feel anxious and depressed with what is befalling us today. Too much stress could manifest through our skin. It can cause premature aging and undesirable skin reactions. Your skin care practice should begin with keeping your mental health in check.

Have a Healthy Diet

With coronavirus panic clearing out groceries stores and closing restaurants, it can be a challenge to whip a decent meal and maintain a balanced diet. But keep in mind that this is the excellent way to keep your skin healthy. As much as possible go for healthy food options such as green vegetables, fruit berries, nuts and fatty fishes.

Stay Hydrated

Drink 8-ounce glasses of water every day. This could help make your skin softer and more supple.

This is also a great way to prevent zits and acne.

Avoid Drinking Alcohol

People will likely hoard bottles of liquor so they have something to enjoy while stuck at home. Avoid alcohol beverages or drink moderately because they can instantly cause breakouts and aging acceleration.

Stay Active

Since you are stuck at home and most gyms are probably close, people tend to slack on their workouts. But do your best to defy the temptation to slack and skip your daily fitness routine. Exercising helps maintain good blood and oxygen flow to the face resulting to a glowing skin and an improved texture.

Have Enough Nighttime Sleep

We all know that sleep is an essential part of skin care. This is when the body switches to regenerative and constructive state. Collagen production also happens during this time. So get enough rest at least 7 hours every night for the benefit of your skin.

Avoid Touching The Face

Face-touching might be a difficult habit to break but we really should avoid it since it's the major way to pick up the virus. Besides that, it can scatter oil and dirt plus bacteria which can clog pores.

Use A Face Mask

Whether you stock on various facial sheet masks or you whip up your own using the available ingredients from the kitchen, apply your face mask at least 3 times a week. Not only it will help improve your skin, it is also relaxing.

Fat Cells Gone Forever with UltraShape Treatment

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 25, 2020
Dream Spa Medical - UltraShape Power, Canton, Boston, MA

People across the Boston area are increasingly turning to Dream Spa Medical for the proven safe and effective fat removal treatment, UltraShape Power. Today we’re going to address the frequently asked question: Will the fat cells return? The short answer is no, they will not. But read on for the full disclosure.

Treated fat cells through UltraShape will not return. In cases where genetics and/or lifestyle combine to create the condition where the body itself produces more fat cells. Post UltraShape patients often discover that fat cells are more evenly distributed thus making additional fat cells more hidden.

The bottom line is, although the treatment does not prevent new fat cells from forming, we’ll help motivate healthy lifestyle changes in order to make the effects of UltraShape treatment long-lasting.

UltraShape is a safe, economical, and effective body sculpting procedure for men and women alike. For more information about UltraShape, contact Dream Spa Medical.

VELASHAPE: Gentle Body Shaping

UltraShape® Vs. CoolSculpting®

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 23, 2020
Dream Spa Medical - UltraShape Power - Boston, Canton, MA

A frequently asked question involves our defining the differences between UltraShape® and CoolSculpting®. It seems whenever one of these treatment options is mentioned questions about the other soon follow. Perhaps this is because both procedures pursue the same goal of destroying fat cells non-invasively. Both procedures are FDA-approved, non-surgical body contouring procedures but they have different methods in breaking down adipose cells.

The UltraShape® procedure utilizes high-frequency ultrasound waves that cause fat cells to burst, releasing their contents for your body to burn off as energy. In contrast, CoolSculpting, also known as cry lipolysis or 'fat freezing', uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat. The UltraShape treatment takes about one to 1.5 hours, and patients generally see results within two to four weeks. In contrast, a CoolSculpting treatment takes about two to six hours depending on which area is being treated, and results are seen within a few months.

UltraShape offers faster results than CoolSculpting. This is one of the clear reasons why at Dream Spa Medical, we chose UltraShape. We see great results first hand and now with the UltraShape POWER, we are able to achieve 34% permanent fat reduction. UltraShape has the highest percentage for non-invasive fat reduction procedures on the market. Whereas, CoolSculpting generally removes about 25-30% of fat in the treated area.

VelaShape: Your Cellulite Reduction Solution

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 09, 2020

Many of us are already dreaming of summer. We’re just not winter people. We’re already thinking of getting back to the pool or beach as soon as possible. Why not start planning for swimsuit wear by taking care of the cellulite that you’ve long considered getting medically removed? Let us introduce to you VelaShape, the most effective solution for reducing cellulite.

VelaShape delivers multiple positive effects. It not only treats cellulite but also enables circumferential reduction. It is a non-invasive procedure that is often fully effective in a single treatment. Some prefer multiple short treatments but the point is even our most challenging cases are taken care of in a manner of weeks, well before Spring 2020 arrives.

VelaShape Treatment is completely safe and is 100% FDA approved. VelaShape produces neither short-term or long-term side effects. You return to normal activity immediately after treatment.

How does VelaShape work?

  • VelaShape rollers offer therapeutic massage and ensure proper circulation throughout the treatment session.
  • Vacuum technology elevates the tissue, bringing it closer to the energy source.
  • Infrared Light heats the targeted up to 3MM in depth
  • Bi-Polar radiofrequency energy safely guides heat evenly throughout the targeted area and goes up to 15MM in-depth, so it heats faster without damaging the skin.
  • The result is reduced appearance of cellulite, overall improvement in skin texture and reduced circumference.

The long wait is over for that effective and affordable treatment that banishes unwanted lumps and bumps. Contact Dream Spa Medical to learn more about this cellulite-vanishing treatment.
