trusculpt-treatments

After months of staying at home, isn’t it time to get out and do something for you? ANU Medical Spa is excited to be back open and offering amazing treatments that help women and men alike get their confidence back in their bodies! Our two newest treatments are revolutionary body sculpting treatments from the truSculpt family: truSculpt iD and truSculpt flex. No matter what your body goals are, whether it’s less fat or more toned muscles, a truSculpt treatment can help you achieve those goals! Keep on reading to learn more about the benefits of truSculpt iD and truSculpt flex and which one is right for you!

truSculpt iD

The days of painful and surgical body sculpting treatments are over. truSculpt iD is a noninvasive fat-reducing procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to eliminate fat cells. One of the best parts about truSculpt iD is its versatility. It can target many different areas of the body that other body sculpting simply can’t. Plus, it uses six handpieces to treat multiple areas at once. That means you could likely have all of your problem areas done in one visit! The best part? Cutera reports that an average of 24 percent fat reduction is achieved in just one treatment! In as little as 15 minutes, you can be on your way to your ideal body. This treatment is no “one size fits all”, it’s custom-tailored to your goals. While it’s not meant to be a major weight loss tool, it is AMAZING for targeting stubborn fat that diet and exercise just aren’t fixing. In the weeks following your treatment, you’ll start to see your fat disappear and you might even see some skin tightening benefits to improve the appearance of cellulite!

truSculpt flex

If diet and exercise aren’t getting you to the muscle definition you’re looking for, truSculpt flex is here to lend a helping hand. truSculpt flex is a personalized muscle-sculpting treatment that adjusts to your fitness level, shape, and goals to strengthen, firm, and tone your muscles. truSculpt flex’s comfortable, safe, and effective technology is clinically proven to increase an average of 30% muscle mass tailored to your individual needs. Similar to truSculpt iD, truSculpt flex uses multiple handpieces – a total of 16! – to target multiple small and large muscle groups at once. Each treatment is about 45 minutes and on average, patients require about four treatments to reach their goals. Depending on what you’re looking to achieve out of truSculpt flex, there are three different modes on the machine that work your muscles in different ways:

  • Prep mode: this mode creates twisting motions similar to those experienced during warm-up exercises. It involves stretching muscles and slowly builds a tolerance to muscle contractions. 
  • Tone mode: this mode is similar to performing squats and involves contracting muscles until the point of exhaustion. This mode mimics strength training programs and results in increased strength and endurance. 
  • Sculpt mode: this mode is similar to performing crunches and involves fast, deep, sequential contractions of the muscles. This mode mimics muscle building programs involving the development of new muscle fibers. An increased muscle mass is also accompanied by a simultaneous elevation of basal metabolic rate (BMR) for the growth and support of muscle mass.

truSculpt flex is a great option for anyone looking to meet specific fitness goals. It’s an especially great option for people who have experienced injuries and can no longer work out a certain muscle group!

Everything You Need to Know About truSculpt iD

Everything You Need to Know About truSculpt iD

trusculpt id

ANU Medical Spa is proud to offer truSculpt iD! The new noninvasive fat-reducing treatment by Cutera uses a unique technology to reduce fat on a broad range of body types. More women and men are gravitating toward the noninvasive fat-reducing procedures like truSculpt iD because it’s fast, easy, and has no visible downtime. If you’re tired of stubborn fat holding you back, then truSculpt iD is perfect for you!

What exactly is truSculpt iD?

This nonsurgical body sculpting treatment uses radiofrequency energy to eliminate fat cells. The most common areas treated are the abdomen, muffin top, thighs, under the chin, and the upper arms. What’s great about truSculpt iD is that it’s super versatile in the areas it can treat, making it the perfect option for people who want to target many different areas. It really does allow you to personalize your ideal body.

How does it work?

truSculpt iD uses six handpieces to treat multiple areas at once. The radiofrequency energy from the handpieces heats pockets of excess fat cells until they’re damaged. Over the next few weeks after your treatment, your body naturally flushes these damaged cells away. The heat from the radiofrequency can also provide some skin tightening benefits to improve the appearance of cellulite. Cutera reports that an average of 24 percent fat reduction is achieved in just one treatment! With truSculpt iD, multiple areas can be treated in as little as one 15-minute session, and you may wish to have additional treatments to achieve the results you desire.

See a real life example of the truSculpt iD process here >>

Who is truSculpt iD best for?

truSculpt iD works on all skin types and can be used over tattoos. Because this body sculpting treatment is a customized and tailored treatment to meet your individual needs, most adult women and men are good candidates. truSculpt iD isn’t meant to be a major weight loss tool. Generally, non-invasive fat-reduction treatments are best suited to people who have isolated fatty bulges that can be specifically targeted by the treatment. 

How is truSculpt iD different from other body sculpting treatments? 

Unlike other body sculpting treatments, truSculpt iD has multiple applicators that can target different areas at once. For those who may not be a candidate for other body sculpting treatments like Emsculpt or Coolsculpting, truSculpt iD is effective in treating a wide range of patients. Factors like treatment location, skin type, fat thickness, and presence of skin laxity are no match for truSculpt iD.

You won’t find truSculpt iD anywhere else in South Jersey! Call or request an appointment online today for a free truSculpt iD consultation. Our experienced team will create a plan for you that will help you achieve your ideal body.

Strengthen and Tone with truSculpt flex

Strengthen and Tone with truSculpt flex

trusculpt flex muscle sculpting

Even a healthy diet and regular exercise sometimes doesn’t do the trick for achieving your ideal body. You’ve put in the work but maybe you need a little extra help to strengthen, firm, and tone those stubborn areas that you just can’t seem to fix. That’s where truSculpt flex comes in. truSculpt flex is a personalized muscle sculpting treatment that adjusts to your fitness level, shape, and goals to strengthen, firm, and tone your muscles.

What is truSculpt flex?

truSculpt flex by Cutera is a non-invasive muscle sculpting device that is used mainly for the strengthening and toning of the abdomen, buttocks, and thigh muscles. 

How does it work?

truSculpt flex improves muscle tone by inducing muscle contractions using electric current. The great thing about this treatment is that it’s completely customizable based on your fitness level, shape, and goals. A truSculpt flex provider will customize the placement of 16 handpieces targeting multiple small and large muscle groups. Each treatment is only about 45 minutes, and patients typically require around four treatments to see the results they’re looking for. 

The machine features three treatment modes and allows treatment of up to eight areas at the same time:

  • Prep mode: this mode creates twisting motions similar to those experienced during warm-up exercises. It involves stretching muscles and slowly builds a tolerance to muscle contractions. 
  • Tone mode: this mode is similar to performing squats and involves contracting muscles until the point of exhaustion. This mode mimics strength training programs and results in increased strength and endurance. 
  • Sculpt mode: this mode is similar to performing crunches and involves fast, deep, sequential contractions of the muscles. This mode mimics muscle building programs involving the development of new muscle fibers. An increased muscle mass is also accompanied by a simultaneous elevation of basal metabolic rate (BMR) for the growth and support of muscle mass.

Who is truSculpt flex for?

Anyone who’s looking to meet specific fitness goals! It’s especially helpful for people who have had past injuries and cannot work out a certain muscle group. 

How is it different from other body sculpting treatments?

Compared to other treatments like Emsculpt, truSculpt flex has a lot more flexibility and specificity. truSculpt flex can stimulate specific muscles by the placement of individual handpieces, while other treatments require bulky hardware that doesn’t target specific muscles. 

You won’t find truSculpt flex anywhere else in the South Jersey area! Book a free consultation with us at ANU Medical Spa to see how you can reach your fitness goals with truSculpt flex muscle sculpting. Learn more: http://bit.ly/2SE1xgr 

Exfoliation Tips for Healthier Skin

Exfoliation Tips for Healthier Skin

how to exfoliate

We know exfoliation is good for your skin, but over exfoliating or aggressive exfoliation can lead to irritation, breakouts, and skin damage. Let’s explore the best options for how to exfoliate in a healthy way! 

Exfoliation tips

Consider your skin type
When deciding how you’re going to exfoliate, it’s important to consider your skin type:

  • Sensitive: may sting or burn after product use
  • Normal: clear and not sensitive
  • Dry: itchy, flaky, or rough
  • Oily: shiny and greasy
  • Combination: dry in some areas and oily in others

Use a tool
Body scrubs can be great and fun to use from time to time, but you can’t go wrong with a trusty washcloth. A washcloth is good to use on your face and body for gentle scrubbing. Sensitive or acne-prone skin could benefit from the washcloth and a mild exfoliator. Another great tool to use on your body is a bath brush. We recommend this for skin that’s not irritated or overly sensitive. For the face, there are so many different cleansing brushes on the market. We recommend one that’s suitable for sensitive skin and is dermatologist recommended.

Don’t forget to moisturize
Moisturizing is always important, but it’s especially crucial right after you exfoliate! While your skin is still slightly wet from the shower, use your favorite moisturizer or lotion all over your face and body. Don’t forget this step or else you could be left with dry skin!

Find your perfect exfoliation schedule
How often you should exfoliate is really dependent on your skin type and exfoliation method. The more sensitive your skin is the less often you should exfoliate. Some can handle a few days a week, while others should only be doing one day a week. Notice how your skin responds after exfoliating to help gauge your perfect exfoliation schedule.

Try a chemical peel
To avoid damage to the skin, we recommend leaving chemical peels to the professionals. At ANU Medical Spa, we offer a variety of chemical peels that target different skin problems like acne, pigment imbalances, and more. Take a look at what we have to offer here.

Exfoliation can make you look and feel amazing! Just be sure not to overdo it. If you have any questions about exfoliation, feel free to reach out to us via email or social media @anumedspa.

How to Get Rid of Strawberry Legs

How to Get Rid of Strawberry Legs

getting rid of strawberry legs

If you’ve noticed dark or little red spots on your legs, you probably have strawberry legs. Strawberry legs is far from a medical term, but it got its name because the spots on your legs tend to resemble the seeds on a strawberry. The spots are simply hair follicles or enlarged pores that contain trapped oil, bacteria, and dead skin. If you suffer from this strawberry skin, there’s nothing to worry about. It’s not dangerous to your health in any way. It just tends to make women self-conscious. Luckily, with a proper skin care routine, you can wave goodbye to strawberry legs.

What causes strawberry legs? 

Shaving
Improper shaving techniques with old, dull razors or without shaving cream can cause your skin more harm than good. Razor burn can lead to strawberry legs and shaving in general can result in ingrown hairs, which can also cause the appearance of strawberry legs. 

Clogged pores
Just like the pores on your face, the pores on your legs can become enlarged and clogged with oil, bacteria, and dead skin. Clogged pores can turn dark after being exposed to air because the oil and debris darkens as it dries.

Keratosis pilaris
This is a skin condition that creates the appearance of dry patches and tiny bumps. This is caused by the buildup of keratin that blocks the opening of the hair follicle, giving you the appearance of strawberry skin.

Folliculitis
When hair follicles become inflamed, it’s known as folliculitis. This can result in the appearance of strawberry legs and can be further inflamed by razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

Getting rid of strawberry legs

Exfoliate
Don’t go overboard with exfoliating every single day (that’s not good for your skin), but do exfoliate at least once a week to keep pores from getting clogged. Gently scrubbing your legs with a washcloth or loofah can get the job done. If you’re looking for a good body scrub, we recommend something with a gentle formula that won’t irritate the pores.

Shave correctly every time
We get it. No one likes to shave in the direction your leg hair grows but it’s the best way to prevent razor bumps and burns. During or directly after a warm shower is the best time to shave because your pores will be open. When you shave, use a sharp razor that doesn’t require you to apply too much pressure and use shaving cream or gel to protect the skin. 

Moisturize 
When your skin is hydrated, the appearance of strawberry legs usually improves.

Waxing or epilating
If shaving is the culprit to your strawberry legs, try waxing or epilating to pull the hair right from the source. Waxing is good for getting rid of dead skin, and you won’t have to worry about razor bumps or your hair growing back in for a longer amount of time.

Laser hair removal
If you’re tired of shaving and never want to do it again, go for laser hair removal! It typically takes two to six treatments to work and it’s safe for the skin. Learn more about laser hair removal services at ANU Medical Spa. Winter is the best time to start so by summer, your legs are hair-free!

Try out some of these tips and be patient! The dark spots might not go away immediately, but with enough consistent exfoliation, moisturization, and use of proper shaving techniques, you’ll be on your way to gorgeous, clear legs!

Microblading Aftercare Guide

Microblading Aftercare Guide

microblading aftercare

After your first microblading treatment, it’s important to take good care of your eyebrows as they heal. The more careful you are in the beginning, the better they will look and the longer they will last! If you’ve never gotten a tattoo or had cosmetic tattooing done before, there are some important changes you might have to make to your daily routine. In the end, we promise it will be worth it!

Things to avoid post-microblading:

  1. Getting area wet for 10 days
  2. Sweating, saunas, and hot showers
  3. Direct exposure to sun and salon tanning
  4. Wearing makeup for at least a week
  5. Picking or itching your eyebrows
  6. Facials, chemical peels, Botox, and microdermabrasion for at least four weeks

What you can expect after your session

The healing process for microblading typically takes around four to six weeks. Throughout these weeks, your eyebrows will go through several phases of healing. At first, the dark pigment on your eyebrows may look a little unnatural and will appear dark for a few days. As your skin naturally starts to regenerate, the color will begin to fade and start to look more normal. During this period, there will be peeling, causing your brows to appear lighter than the original consultation projection. This is typical of most people, even with proper care. That’s why your follow up appointment after six to eight weeks is so important! After 30 days, your eyebrows will be in their final phases of healing. At this point, they’ll look more natural, and you can enjoy your beautiful new eyebrows!

Skin care after microblading

Once your microblading is completely healed, there are simple methods to avoid fading. 

  1. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, sunscreen is a must! Apply a thin layer of SPF 30 to 50 on your eyebrows before you go outside. 
  2. When using foundation, avoid putting it directly on your healed eyebrows because they’ll appear lighter.
  3. Avoid products that contain retinol – they may speed up the process of fading!
  4. Be sure to use moisturizer or ointment that is suggested by your permanent makeup artist. These products can be used to minimize scabbing and keep your eyebrows moisturized and protected from germs and bacteria.

You want to keep your eyebrows looking amazing for as long as possible, so it’s crucial to take the best care of them during the healing process! If you’re worried about messing up the healing process, talk with your microblading specialist and figure out what will work best for you. 

Be sure to book your six to eight week touch up and your annual follow up to keep your brows looking fresh. Book today >>

Anti-aging Starts with Collagen

Anti-aging Starts with Collagen

collagen

As we age, we start to notice more fine lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles. Why does this happen? When we get older our skin starts to thin and becomes less elastic. Repetitive facial expressions like smiling, frowning, and squinting forms a groove under the surface of the skin. Younger skin has the elasticity to bounce back from this, but as you get older, your skin loses its flexibility and has a harder time bouncing back, resulting in permanent lines and wrinkles. There is an important fiber in the skin called collagen that forms the skin’s connective tissue. Over time, it breaks down and makes the skin thinner and weaker. Luckily, there are ways to get more collagen through your diet, supplements, and even medical spa treatments.

What is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It’s found in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. Collagen is actually what holds the body together. Collagen production naturally declines with age and is affected by other factors like smoking and exposure to UV light. After menopause, women experience a rapid decline in collagen production, which means the skin is more vulnerable to imperfections. 

If you’re experiencing wrinkles and fine lines or want to take precautions to prevent them, you’ve come to the right place. Follow the methods below to receive more collagen and save yourself from wrinkles!

Collagen in your diet

There are important nutrients found in different foods that can prevent collagen loss:

  • Proline: eggs, meat, cheese, soy, and cabbage 
  • Anthocyanidins: blackberries, blueberries, cherries, and raspberries
  • Vitamin C: oranges, strawberries, peppers, broccoli
  • Copper: shellfish, nuts, red meat

Do collagen supplements work?

Many studies have been done on the effectiveness of collagen supplements. In a Journal of Medical Nutrition and Nutraceuticals study, researchers found that participants’ skin hydration and elasticity improved significantly and the depth of their wrinkles were reduced. Collagen supplements also boast other benefits, including improved joint health, increased muscle mass, bone loss prevention, and heart health. Researchers are still skeptical and are working to study all of these benefits. 

Medical spa treatments that boost collagen

Microneedling is an excellent treatment for restoring the body’s natural collagen production. Microneedling uses sterile surgical steel microneedles to penetrate the upper and lower layers of the skin. This causes controlled microscopic wounds, which kick starts the body’s healing response and increases the amount of collagen producing cells.This month, take advantage of the introductory price on our newest treatment: Secret RF microneedling! It improves signs of aging, wrinkles, and fine lines by using radio frequency to penetrate deeper layers of the skin to boost collagen production. Learn more >>
