Holiday: Medical Spa Gifts

by | Dec 8, 2020 | News

Are you looking for the perfect spa gift to spoil that special someone this holiday season? Then, you’ve come to the right place. The holiday season is a time to show gratitude towards all our loved ones that make our lives unique. Although holiday gifts are not the only way to tell your partner just how much you love them, gift-giving is a perfect opportunity to show just how much you care for them.

A non-traditional yet appreciated spa gift can be a service from the Melamed Weight and Wellness medical spa. At our med spa, we offer many options suitable for most ages and skin types. Here is a curated collection of some of the best holiday spa gifts you can give them this season. 

A Spa Gift For Them

Sometimes preparation for the holidays can be equally exciting and stressful. Show your loved one just how much you appreciate everything they’re doing to make the holidays special by gifting them with a facial at our medspa. These facials require nearly zero downtime and will have their skin looking picture perfect just in time for the holidays. 

Dermaplaning Facial 

Dermaplaning is an extremely effective exfoliating procedure. It uses a feather blade to remove both dead skin and peach fuzz on the face. Dermaplaning can help with dullness, wrinkles, breakouts, better product absorption, smoother skin texture, and makeup application.

This facial is for all skin types, so no matter if your special someone has acne, old or young skin, oily skin, or anything in between, this facial is for them. With all the benefits from this no-downtime facial, your special someone will surely appreciate this facial as a spa gift. 

Microneedling Facial 

Microneedling is a procedure that uses tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin, which helps produce collagen and results in smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. The technician cleans your face thoroughly and applies lidocaine cream (a local anesthetic) to the treatment area.

They then use a device to “aerate” your skin. This “aeration” device uses needles to create micro-wounds, activating your skin’s natural response to injury—which in turn produces collagen— allowing serums to penetrate more deeply into the skin. This, too, could be a great spa gift! 

Hydrafacial 

The HydraFacial is a red-carpet facial treatment that gently cleanses and hydrates the skin. The four-step treatment includes cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and hydrating the skin with serums infused into the pores. The process also assists with lymphatic drainage, which can help accelerate healing, reduce puffiness and redness, and reduce scar tissue.

If you are looking to give your partner the spa gift of a youthful complexion this holiday season, you should consider the gift of fillers or botox.

Botox 

Botox, a common neuromodulator, works by temporarily relaxing muscle contractions, allowing the skin to smooth over time. We use microneedles to directly deposit tiny amounts of Botox into the skin, resulting in smoothed wrinkles, improved volume, and smaller pore size. Botox takes between 4-7 days to relax the muscle treated and keeps it relaxed for approximately three months. While Botox is often used to treat the lines around the eyes (crows feet) or between the eyebrows (11s), it is also used to treat underarm sweating, migraines, overactive bladder, neck/arm spasms, eyelid spasms, and more. Depending on where your special someone wants botox, this can be a perfect way to get ready for the holidays.

Fillers are also an excellent gift idea. There are three different levels of fillers that we offer that will hit other targeted areas. There are deep, medium, and gentle fillers. 

Deep Fillers 

Restylane Lyft and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA are deep fillers designed to create volume and lift the tissue. Best use: temples, cheeks, chin, and lower jaw.

Medium Fillers

Restylane Defyne and Refyne and JUVÉDERM ULTRA and ULTRA PLUS are medium fillers used to help with deep folds, wrinkles, lip augmentation, and lip definition. Best use: pre-jowls, nasolabial folds, and lips.

Gentle Fillers

Restylane Silk and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA are thinner, gentle fillers used for smaller, superficial wrinkles and lips to help create a soft, more natural fill. Best use: forehead, eyes, and lips.

The rush and excitement of the holidays can take a lot out of someone. If you notice your partner lacks holiday cheer, it could be because their energy is drained. Why not give them a boost of energy with a spa gift of IV therapy

IV therapy, formally known as intravenous therapy, is a life-changing experience and an unbeatable gift to give to the one you love. IV therapy boosts overall wellness by providing your body with all the vitamins and nutrients you need. 

Each  IV Therapy treatments can benefit you in several ways. 

Myers Cocktail 

This combination of vitamins and minerals boosts energy and immunity, optimizes mood and mental performance, combats stress, and helps fight aging signs.   

Immunity

This wellness IV includes a high dose of vitamin C, zinc, and B vitamins for maximum immune strength and protection during the cold season. It’s perfect for Holiday traveling, getting sick with a winter cold, or just for feeling worn out from Holiday stress. 

Skinny Me 

With all the delicious foods that come with the Holiday season, it can be hard to stay on track with weight goals. SkinnyMe stimulates your metabolism, promotes healthy weight management, and works excellently alongside any diet or exercise plan.

A Gift To Yourself

With the new year right around the corner, many of us have already begun to set resolutions. However, we often find that the goals we set for ourselves in the New Year are not sustainable, and we end up abandoning them after only a few weeks. This year, you should consider giving yourself a sustainable diet that will help you achieve your resolution by the time the next Newyear rolls around. 

High Protein Diet 

No surprises here; the high-protein diet uses high-protein foods to enhance nutrition and appetite control. It includes 2-3 protein products from the Melamed Weight and Wellness protein food line, as well as 1-2 free meals per day, and works particularly well for busy lifestyles, as you’re able to both cook and eat out. High-protein foods are also healthy and fast alternatives to have on you or in the car.

Optifast Diet 

The Optifast diet is a medically supervised weight loss program that utilizes meal replacement plans, self-prepared meals, comprehensive patient education, and support. Typically lasting 26-52 weeks, the OPTIFAST program consists of 3 phases: the active weight loss phase, the transition phase, and the maintenance phase.

Melamed Weight and Wellness’s Spa Gift to You 

As our spa gift to you this holiday season, we will offer a free consultation with our nutritionist to know precisely how these diets can help you reach your goal. We will also provide extensive advice and maintenance from the nutritionist after your diet is complete to ensure that you keep the weight off.
