Hollywood's Fountains of Youth - MedSpas!!

By Angie Ohman · September 13, 2010

In Hollywood, “ MedSpas” are popping up on every corner like Starbucks! These new Medical Spas are Hollywood’s fountains of youth, offering procedures that promise to turn back the clock with little to no downtime!

Jenny McCarthy is a big fan of Medspas!

Maybe you’ve noticed that we’re no longer seeing the tight pulled facelifts and overly plumped lips on the red carpets. But all of a sudden everyone seems to have perfect skin… no flaws, no wrinkles, not one blemish! How are they doing it?? Medspas! Celebrities no longer have to turn to the knife to maintain their youth. Nurses at medspas, armed with lasers, Botox, and fillers are slowly replacing the plastic surgeon in Hollywood!

These new spas are one-stop shops for all the latest beauty treatments! Women are making it a ritual to visit their local medspa for “monthly maintenance.” Here you can zap unwanted hair, smooth cellulite, clear acne, fill in lines and wrinkles- you can even have “fat melting” injections during your lunch break! This monthly beauty maintenance has become so common in LA, even women in their early 20s frequent medspas to keep their skin clear and to prevent aging before it even happens.

Here’s a brief look into what they’re offering:

LASERS: Lasers are the future of beauty with new innovations coming out practically every day. Today’s lasers can do it all! They can remove that tattoo you got on Spring break, lift sagging skin, minimize pores, zap fat, and remove unwanted hair – and so much more I’ll have to write a separate blog just for lasers! The laser everyone is talking about right now is the PIXEL laser. It resurfaces skin, evens out skin tone, minimizes pores and scars and produces new collagen giving women perfect, youthful skin! WOW!



INJECTABLE FILLERS: Fillers like Restylane(Restylane.com) and Juvederm(Juvederm.com) fill in lines to instantly smooth out wrinkles around your mouth and nose like smile lines and vertical lip lines. Results can last up to one year.

PARALYTICS: You’ve all heard about Botox! Paralytics like Botox and Dysport work by preventing muscle movement in areas that create wrinkles like the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox is even being used to give “brow lifts” and for jaw reduction. Paralytics are quickly becoming more and more acceptable as doctors and nurses have become more skilled in creating more natural looking results...I’ve heard that even young starlets in their early 20s have turned to Botox to make their skin look smoother.

FACIAL PEELS: Facial peels are usually a mixture of acids and vitamins that are applied to the skin to promote peeling and cell turnover. They are effective for pigmentation problems, acne, large pores, texture issues and scarring. There are peels for everyone and every skin type. Some chemical peels are mild and have no down time, others are stronger and have down time for up to one week. The stronger chemical peels are deeper and remove thicker layers of skin which result in more significant improvement of skin texture and tone. Chemical peels can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs.

Vi Peel

Vi Peel helps to erase fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation, the effects of acne, shrink enlarged pores and helps build collagen and elastin which tightens the skin within days with little downtime.

*The celebrity hot-spot of medspas in LA is the Beauty Park Spa in Santa Monica, headed by Nurse Jamie Sherrill, author of “Nurse Jamie’s Botox Diaries: Real Stories from a Fake World” Nurse Jamie is the go-to skin perfecter of celebrities, offering all the above procedures – and then some!

Welcome to the future of beauty, ladies!!

Peace, Love, and Sexiness
