What are Your Hands Exposing?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Your AGE

You make your skin look fabulous, with products, procedures and facials. Your youth and beauty is revealed through your healthy skin, making you look younger and healthier. One glance in the mirror tells you that 50 really is the new 35…but then you look down at your hands.

Lines, creases, dark spots, and bulging veins on the back of your hands are the sneaky giveaways of your age. The hands are one of the first places where aging affects are shown, also an area that most people neglect when it comes to skincare. Did you know that having your hands on the steering wheel, driving, exposes your hands to the sun more than any other part of your body? Your hands are constantly exposed to sunlight and all of its photoaging effects.


Laser Hair Removal

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 29, 2013

The insecurities that lie behind body hair are struggles that males and females face all of the time, especially in the summer. It’s common for women to get their upper lip waxed or bleached. Waxing the bikini line is another common hair removal procedure. It’s becoming more and more common for men to shave their chest and back hair.

The average American male begins to shave between the ages of 14-16 years of age. It is also estimated that a man will shave at least 20,000 times in his lifetime. One razor pack costs an average of about 12 dollars, while the replacement blades often cost about 25 dollars. Putting that into perspective, the money spent on razor-blades yearly, add up to thousands of dollars.

There is a common stigma in society promoting the look of clean and shaven individuals. With hair growing at 0.35 millimeters a day or 1 centimeter per month, it’s hard to keep up with this clean-shaven look. This means: shaving, razor burn, ingrown hairs, money spent. These inconveniences are just a few reasons why people are turning to laser hair removal.

Benefits of laser hair removal:

  • A non-invasive, gentle technique that eliminates undesirable hair from all parts of the body.
  • Leaves skin looking smoother and silkier.
  • Treats larger areas effectively because it removes more than one hair at a time.
  • Minimal discomfort.
  • Replaces waxing and razors.
  • Immediate return to normal activities.

How Women are Finding a New Way to Feel Confident this Summer

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 23, 2013

One of the biggest complaints from women is that they don’t feel confident in summer clothes. Even if we diet and exercise, we can still have those stubborn areas we want to see gone. Not to mention, the dreaded cellulite. Cellulite is a very common condition, especially among women. Women are basically genetically and hormonally predisposed to cellulite. When fat cells are enlarged, the rigid fibers push toward the soft tissue of the dermis, causing the rough surface appearance described as "orange peel", this is cellulite.

Creams have been one option to treat cellulite, but a new option by global leader in the aesthetic medical device market, Syneron, has introduced a new technology called VelaShape™. Offered by Dream Spa Medical in Canton, MA, VelaShape™ is the first and only safe, effective and virtually painless FDA-cleared non-surgical medical solution for the Body Reshaping and Cellulite Treatment market.

The way it works is; a massaging vacuum is created with specially designed rollers for the mechanical massage to smooth out the skin facilitating a safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. As with most treatments, it does require multiple sessions; most patients start to see real results within 4-5 visits. In a clinical multi-center study, 85% of the treated areas have reported Circumferential Reduction of thighs of at least 1cm; ranging up to 7.2cm in reduction.

“The best part about this treatment is there is no down time and can be done throughout the summer regardless of the patient’s sun exposure” says clinical director and owner of Dream Spa Medical in Canton MA, Dr. Joseph Russo.

Facials Vs. DREAM SPA MEDICAL Facials

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 15, 2013

Before going to Dream Spa Medical and NOT getting the HydraFacial- I would go to a common place that is known for facials (I won’t write the name on here). It was very relaxing and soothing, I would get a nice massage and music would play in the background. However, let’s take a step back for a second and think about why I went there from the start. I would leave there feeling so relaxed but being relaxed doesn't solve the initial problem that I needed help with: My acne. What I learned after a few of these experiences was that the hour of relaxation and Zen, not only did not clear up my acne but made it worse. Once I was at that point, I did not trust facials at all. I was convinced that they only made me break out (Having wasted hundreds of dollars on useless facials that gave me relaxation).

Dream Spa Medical, gives the spa treatment as an ADDITION to the actual procedure. What I learned is that these skilled aestheticians aren’t just doing what they are supposed to do- but more. They care about YOUR skin and what your skin needs in order to fix YOUR problem. They don’t just go through the routines of their job, but do things that will benefit YOU. You will leave feeling relaxed AND helped. The money I am spending on the HydrFacials I receive, IS WORTH IT. I am confidently getting the procedure done, in order to relax and clear up my skin. If it works, and I’m actually being helped money is not wasted. With confidence I strongly believe that if it weren’t for Dream Spa Medical and the amazing HydraFacial, my skin would not look the way it does today. I would be hopeless without this procedure, I trust Dream Spa Medical completely. Thank you !

That Cellulite has got-to-GO, say hello to VelaShape!

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 25, 2013

SUMMER IS HERE - BEACH TIME! And let’s just hope you’re a creative person, because it’s also time to think of ways to cover-up cellulite and uncomfortable areas.

What is cellulite? This is a common problem affecting about 95% of women, and also affecting men. Cellulite is the superficial layer of fat that sits just under the surface of the skin. The Connective tissue that holds the fat has usually been weakened, resulting in dimpling. The constant truth for both sexes is that because the fat is superficial, it can be almost impossible to treat with diet and exercise alone.

But what about all those creams that apparently diminish cellulite? The reality is that all those creams are unable to penetrate deep enough into the skin to get the fat, rendering them essentially useless.

There is only one technique that has ever shown real signs of being effective: VelaShape.

The VelaShape is a safe, effective, and fast treatment with no downtime. The massaging vacuum is created with specially designed rollers for the mechanical massage to smooth out the skin to facilitate safe and efficient heat energy delivery. The net result increases the metabolism of stored energy, increases lymphatic drainage and reduces or shrinks the size of the actual fat cells and fat chambers. As with most treatments, it does require you to have multiple sessions; most patients start to see real results within 4-5 visits. In a clinical multi-center study, 85% of the treated areas have reported Circumferential Reduction of thighs of at least 1cm; ranging up to 7.2cm in reduction.

Don’t feel insecure about your legs, bum, or any body part for that matter. Get rid of your cellulite and reshape those uncomfortable areas today!

Hydrafacial Great for Acne and Unexpected Breakouts

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 11, 2013

You may have heard of this new phenomenon The Hydrafacial, but until you try it, you really don't get just how amazing it is. We have clients all of the time who unexpectedly break out and call us for help. One of the most common treatments we recommend for these breakouts and acne is a Hydrafacial. It just sweeps the entire face sucking out the dirt and oil in a gentle motion that feels like a wet paintbrush. After the cleansing, they Hydrafacial is switched into mode 2 where hydrating serums infuse deep into the skin. The third step is the infusion of anti-aging serums. We have had people actually clear up right after the first Hydrafacial procedure. If paired with a good home care routine which we will advise you on, the Hydrafacial is a great solution for unexpected acne breakouts.


A Word from Our Patient About Botox...

Joseph Coupal - Monday, June 03, 2013

I could not be happier with the results of my botox treatment at Dream Spa Medical. At 26 years old, I always hear that I am “too young for botox” however I feel that this just a misconception of what botox actually is and what it does! I furrow my forehead/eyebrows CONSTANTLY!

When I catch myself, I try to correct it but within seconds I forget and my 11’s are back! At this rate, in 10 years from now I will probably have 11’s as deep as the Grand Canyon! With botox treatment, I am physically unable to make my 11’s appear which in turn will help prevent deep wrinkles in the future and the need for more pricey injections of fillers to correct the wrinkles that I have caused by years of furrowing my forehead! With a little preventative botox, I’m saving myself more money and procedures years down the line!

Thanks Dream Spa Medical, you will definitely be seeing me again!

Stacey's Botox Testimonial

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 30, 2013

I never thought the day would be here that I would have to worry about wrinkles on my face. I am 37 years old and take very good care of my skin. I constantly stared in the mirror at the folds in my forehead. I feel so young.. yet the folds made me feel so old. I was constantly staring at myself in the mirror thinking.. "I am way to young to look older".

I knew from friends that Botox was an option for the folds. I put off doing anything about it until Dream Spa Medical was established. It is close to my office which gave me the push to take advantage of a free consultation.

The worries I had before my consultation were.

  • Would a licensed professional be injecting the Botox into my skin
  • How painful would it be.
  • Could I afford this "luxury" procedure.

After my consult at Dream Spa Medical I immediately booked my Botox procedure . I cannot put into the appropriate words how happy I am.. and how amazing such a small, non surgical procedure could change how I feel about myself.

The procedure was so easy, so painless, so quick and so affordable. Within 3 days I felt 10 years younger.

My family and friends that knew I was having the procedure done are amazed by the results. The best part for me is that it looks and feels so natural. No one will be able to look at me and say.. "Wow she just had Botox". They will just wonder what my secret is to looking so young.

A Word from Our Patient About the Hydra Facial...

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I'm going to try and make this as short as possible, then again that's impossible because there is so much to say… HERE GOES NOTHING FUTURE HYDRAFACIAL -LOVERS!

So there was a point in my life when I had pretty bad acne and then it all cleared up and everything was great, one of those 'WOW, FINALLY I LOVE MY SKIN' moments … And then I randomly broke out a horrible amount- clogged pores everything. If you're wondering if I had a panic attack? DING DING DING!!! Correct- Panic attack of the century. Don't know if it was a hormonal thing or an allergic reaction but either way I was horrified, and my skin looked awful. I'm honest about my skin, it is something I can be insecure about but it's nothing I can't talk about. I went to Dream Spa Medical, walked in and said 'FIX ME PLEASE'. This seems dramatic, but the clogged pores, red skin, acne-look just isn't for me. The drama was necessary when the summer is coming up, and I just want smooth, nice skin … Not trying to wear makeup to the gym because my skin is THAT bad. And let me just mention once more, OH IT WAS. IT WAS BAD.

One of the nurses told me to first of all relax… I didn't relax. Moral of the story- I got the HydraFacial and it was UNBELIEVABLE. I wouldn't waste my time typing about this- let alone harassing all my friends to get one if it wasn't as amazing as it was. First your skin is cleaned (you have to love the massage). And then there is this massive machine, which looks pretty legit.

A suction thing is placed on your face and you can LITERALLY feel the dirt getting sucked out of your skin. Imagine clogged pores- all just being sucked out by this machine. AND THAT'S NOT ALL... While all the dirt and oil is being TAKEN OUT of your skin, the machine is infusing nutrients and acne-fighting skin solutions into your skin WHERE THERE IS NO LONGER DIRT AND OILS. There were about 3 of these little suction things which all did something different but AMAZING for your skin. The last 'suction' that you get infuses water and moisture into your skin … did I fail to mention my skin is dry too? This procedure was unbelievable, you would think you wouldn't see results right away but you do. Immediately when the procedure was done you could see that my skin looked fresh. It wasn't red and blotchy but FRESH AND CLEAN. HydraFacial was the best thing that's ever happened to my skin (Thank you Dream Spa Medical crew. THANK YOU!!!! )
