The DaVinci Med Spa team was at a conference this weekend and had a chance to talk to several people about their aesthetic concerns. Among the issues that stood out were wrinkles, skin tone, dark or age spots and body contouring. Each client could benefit from an individual consultation as each need is different. Among the many options to consider, often treatment with Botox, microneedling or IPL photo facial are the right choice for ease of use, safe and cost effective. Non invasive options for body contouring and skin tightening include radio frequency treatments such as the Venus Freeze.
In this study researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine compared two questionnaires to evaluate the impact of sun spots on a patients’ quality of life. Both tools were effective in evaluating the quality of life, which was affected by dark spots. Understanding this can help guide treatment choices.
