    Watch this video to learn more about adult acne in women. Air pollution and cosmetics can lead to clogged pores, which can cause breakouts. For some women, stress causes acne to appear. The good news is that treatments are available.

    Everything You Need to Know About Cellulite

    Last updated 22 days ago

    Warmer temperatures mean long days spent in the sunshine, breaking out your summer wardrobe—and worrying about cellulite. Cellulite is the bane of everyone when shorts season rolls around, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Aurora Medical Spa can help you say goodbye to your cellulite once and for all with our VelaShape treatment. What exactly is cellulite and what causes it to appear? Here are the facts you need:

    What Is Cellulite?

    Cellulite is dimpled, lumpy skin that appears on the thighs, abdomen, buttocks, and upper arms. Although it can happen to anyone, it is most likely to strike women in their teen years and beyond. In its most mild form, cellulite can only been seen when flesh in the affected area is pinched. In severe cases, cellulite is visible in any position.

    What Causes Cellulite?

    Your skin is connected to your muscle with fibrous cords. In between the cords and the muscles are fat cells. When fat cells accumulate in a specific area, they push the skin upwards while pushing the muscles downward. As a result, the skin surface looks uneven and dimpled. Cellulite is more common in people who are overweight, but lean people can experience it, too. Women are more susceptible because they tend to carry more fat in the thighs, hips, and buttocks. Age is another factor in cellulite development. As skin loses elasticity with age, cellulite becomes more likely.

    How Is Cellulite Treated?

    Cellulite is notoriously difficult to treat, but VelaShape at Aurora Medical Spa could be the solution you’ve been looking for. VelaShape relies on vacuum and tissue manipulation to reduce the volume of fat tissue. As a result, your skin looks firmer and toned in as little as four sessions. Periodic maintenance treatments will help keep your cellulite at bay, as will your commitment to following a balanced diet and exercising regularly.

    With Aurora Medical Spa, you never have to settle for looking less than your best. In addition to VelaShape, we provide hair removal, Botox, Juvederm, and everything in between. Don’t wait to make your appointment. Call our St. Louis med spa at (314) 315-4574 today.

    How to Make the Most of Your Next Spa Visit

    Last updated 27 days ago

    Going to a spa is the perfect way to shrug off the stress of your everyday life. When you leave, you should look and feel your absolute best. At Aurora Medical Spa, we’re dedicated to ensuring that all of our clients leave feeling completely satisfied with their services. There are a few things you can do to lay the foundation for a great spa visit. Here are some ways to get ready for your next appointment:

    Arrive a Little Early

    Most spas run on a tight schedule. This is particularly true if you are having more than one service performed. Chances are that the spa has your services scheduled with multiple aestheticians, so when you’re late for an appointment, you could set off a chain reaction of delays. Plus, when you’re rushing to get through the door on time, you won’t be in a calm state of mind when your services begin. Aim to get to the spa early so you have time to relax before your treatments start.

    Speak Up

    Every service provider wants your spa experience to meet your expectations. Not every client has the same preferences for music, lighting, and other aspects of their treatments. If something about your treatment isn’t working for you, speak up. You should also feel free to communicate concerns and treatment goals to spa staff. If you experience any discomfort, let your aesthetician know so that your treatment can be adapted.

    Wear Comfortable Clothing

    It’s a good idea to wear loose, comfortable clothes to your spa appointment. When you’re receiving treatments like Botox or Juvederm, it’s important that you feel relaxed. Even if you get a treatment that involves disrobing, like hair removal, you’ll be glad you’ve got something cozy to put on after your appointment.

    If you have questions about what to expect at your next Aurora Medical Spa appointment, don’t hesitate to call us at (314) 315-4574. Our medical spa in St. Louis provides services ranging from glycolic acid treatments to Botox, hair removal, and Juvederm. Make your appointment today.

    Advantages of Choosing Diamond Medical Microdermabrasion

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Microdermabrasion is the perfect solution when you want to get rid of fine lines, acne, and discoloration. During treatment, the top layer of skin is removed so that the fresher skin underneath can be revealed. At Aurora Medical Spa, we offer Diamond Medical Microdermabrasion to our clients. Use it alone or combine it with some of our other services, like Botox or Juvederm, to reach your skincare goals. Here is what you need to know about how microdermabrasion can help you:


    Microdermabrasion Explained

    During a microdermabrasion treatment, the skin is exfoliated using tiny medical-grade particles. These particles scrub away the top layer of skin, including dead skin cells and debris that dull the complexion. It is suitable for people of all skin colors and types, unlike dermabrasion, which is only safe for people with fair skin. With microdermabrasion, you’ll see subtle, natural changes in your skin that will leave you looking younger. It’s perfect for addressing fine lines and acne. There is no anesthesia required, and recovery is quick and easy. Your skin will be pink and may feel like you have a minor sunburn for about 24 hours. Most people return to work right away. It’s important to wear sunscreen after microdermabrasion to protect your refreshed skin.


    Diamond Medical Microdermabrasion

    Diamond microdermabrasion is an increasingly popular technique. Instead of using crystals, the aesthetician uses a diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate the skin. Exfoliation can be performed at varied depths for the ultimate in safety and even healing. Diamond microdermabrasions are considered to be even more comfortable than traditional methods and tend to have faster healing times. At Aurora Medical Spa, a custom peel is included with all microdermabrasion treatments.


    Is microdermabrasion right for you? Schedule a consultation with Aurora Medical Spa in St. Louis to find out. With everything from Botox and Juvederm to hair removal on our spa menu, we’re sure to have the right treatment for you. Find out more by calling (314) 315-4574.
