BroadBand Light Therapy: The Number One Post-Summer Treatment at Acqua Blu

Take years off your complexion with BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL). This gentle, noninvasive, and safe procedure will erase sun spots, age spots, redness, and more across your body. If you have been out in the sun all summer long, now is the time to rejuvenate your skin with BBL. BBL uses state-of-the-art technology to make your skin firmer and more even in tone and texture, creating a fresh and youthful appearance. This FDA-cleared treatment commonly treats conditions such as:

  • Vascular Lesions (small blood vessels)
  • Pigmented Lesions (freckles and age spots)
  • Acne
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Skin Firmness
How Does BBL Work? This treatment uses near-infrared light energy to gently heat the top layers of your skin, stimulating your body to create new collagen and restore your skin’s natural beauty. The photothermal energy will blend the natural colors of the skin and make it smoother, more vibrant, and younger looking. This procedure will also eliminate the small blood vessels that cause redness and reduce the melanin that causes freckles and age spots. At the same time that the skin is heated, the machine’s contact cooling system will pull heat out of your body. This ensures minimal discomfort so that most patients do not even need topical numbing cream during this treatment. What Areas Are Commonly Treated? BBL can treat any area of your body. Since most damage is caused by sunlight, however, the most popular treatments are done on the:
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Hands
  • Chest
PreBBLChest1 PostBBLChest1 w label         A Pre-BBL (left) and Post-BBL (right) chest after a treatment performed by Dr. Heil of Acqua Blu Medical Spa.   How Many BBL Treatments Do Patients Need? For the best possible results, experts recommend that patients come in for two to four BBL treatments each year. The precise number of treatments will vary based on the results that you desire. What Should Patients Expect After BBL? Immediately after treatment, patients may notice mild redness and the sensation of a mild sunburn. This side effect will go away in one to two days. Treated areas will start to look healthier several days after treatment, and age spots, sun spots, and broken blood vessels should clear up in just one to two weeks. Are You Interested in Rejuvenating Your Skin with BBL? If you are planning to restore your clear, youthful skin with BBL, then you should contact Acqua Blu Medical Spa. Our skin specialists in Pittsburgh, PA offer cutting-edge, non-invasive cosmetic care that will enhance your appearance and boost your confidence.

Experiencing Issues Below the Bikini Line? Vaginal Rejuvenation May Be the Answer

Though cosmetic surgery is becoming more mainstream, perfectly normal issues such as urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and loosened vaginal tissues are still rarely talked about. If you have experienced unwanted changes below the bikini line, then non-surgical ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation will restore your confidence in the bedroom and wherever you go. Today, Acqua Blu’s skin specialists in Pittsburgh, PA, are here to answer a few questions that our patients commonly ask about vaginal rejuvenation. Will ThermiVa Improve My Leaky Bladder? Many women who have given birth will experience a leaky bladder when they sneeze, laugh, or exercise. ThermiVa uses radiofrequency energy to thicken and tone the vaginal wall, which reinforces the muscles that keep your bladder under control. After this treatment, most patients enjoy a significant reduction in urinary incontinence. Will Vaginal Rejuvenation Help Me in the Bedroom? ThermiVa will tone and tighten the vaginal canal, enhance healthy blood flow below the bikini line, and restore natural lubrication. These benefits can improve sexual sensation for both you and your partner. Additionally, if you have had difficulty orgasming after childbirth or menopause, then it’s possible that ThermiVa can help. Is ThermiVa Painful? ThermiVa is gentle and painless. It feels like a mildly warm transvaginal ultrasound. Your physician will use a thin, smooth, and wand-like device to deliver controlled heat via radiofrequency energy. This gentle heat causes your skin to regrow collagen, bringing back the strength and elasticity of your tissues. After your procedure, you can return to your regular activities right away. How Long Will My Results Last? Our patients typically enjoy the full benefits of ThermiVa for about one year after their initial series of treatments. Then, an annual follow-up appointment will maintain those desirable effects for several years. Unfortunately, the collagen boost that patients experience may not be enough to fully correct problems caused by the natural tissue aging process. Is ThermiVa Affordable for Me? ThermiVa is priced per treatment, and the number of treatments you need will vary depending on your individual goals. Most patients require two or three appointments to achieve the results that they desire, while others might combine ThermiVa with additional cosmetic procedures. At Acqua Blu Medical Spa, a package of three vaginal rejuvenation treatments starts at $1800. Are You Considering Vaginal Rejuvenation with ThermiVa? If you are interested in ThermiVa or any of the spa services in Pittsburgh, PA, that we offer at Acqua Blu Medical Spa, then please schedule your consultation today. Just call 724-371-8571.

Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun-exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, your skin may develop sun spots, fine lines, and lose that natural, healthy glow. Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep.

How Much Botox Will I Need?

If you are getting Botox for the first time, then you may be surprised to learn that this treatment is usually priced by how many units of Botox you receive. Naturally, this leads many patients to wonder how many units they will need to achieve the results they desire. Unfortunately, this seemingly simple question isn’t so simple. Many factors can influence the amount of Botox that you need: Your Gender Men have more muscle mass in their brows and foreheads than women, so they will require more Botox to achieve the same amount of relaxation. The physicians’ technique will also be slightly different depending on the patient’s gender because men and women tend to have different aesthetic preferences. Your Muscle Strength Botox injections inhibit the nerves that cause your facial muscles to contract. When they are weakened, they can’t make the movements that cause lines and wrinkles. The stronger your muscles, the more Botox you need. You may even require more units for one side of your face than the other. Your Ultimate Goal Some patients may prefer a completely motionless result, while others may wish to maintain some amount of movement for a more natural look. The more movement you retain, the fewer units of Botox you need. Your Facial Features Depending on the shape and size of your face, you may need a different amount of Botox to soften your features and prevent wrinkles from forming. For example, if you have a small forehead, you may need less Botox than average. Your Metabolism The effects of your Botox will only last until your body metabolizes the product. Most patients can enjoy smoother skin for four to six months. Those who have a fast metabolism, however, may need more Botox or may need to schedule a follow-up appointment sooner. Which Areas of the Face Will Your Treatment Target? For an estimate of how many units the average patient needs for popular Botox facial areas, check out the infographic below. how much botox will i need-page-001 Ultimately, you can’t know how many units of Botox you will need until you come in for a consultation with skin specialists in Pittsburgh, PA, or wherever you are located.

Let’s Talk About Unwanted Facial Hair...And What You Can Do About It

The removal of unwanted facial hair is one of the most popular spa services available in our Pittsburgh, PA medical spa. Laser hair removal is quick enough to do on your lunch break, pain-free, and surprisingly affordable. With this procedure, you can permanently remove unwanted facial hair on your:

  • Upper Lip
  • Space Between the Eyebrows
  • Chin and Jawline
  • Sideburns
  • Cheeks
How Does Laser Hair Treatment Work? At our medical spa, we use Broad Band Light and an Emvera Diolux laser to focus infrared energy on the capillaries that feed hair follicles. The heat of this treatment cauterizes the blood vessels and permanently shuts down the growth of unwanted facial hair. shutterstock_646664458 What Should Patients Expect During Their Treatment? When you come in for facial hair removal, your experience will be fast, simple, and nearly pain-free. Your physician will target the areas you desire with the laser, leading to a brief sensation of warmth that is reminiscent of the snapping of a rubber band. If you are treating a small section of the face, such as the upper lip, your treatment can be finished in as little as five minutes. When Will Patients See Results? Right away! Any visible hair and stubble on your face will fall away after your laser treatment. Then, after one to three weeks, the hair underneath your skin will push out, leading to several weeks with little to no hair growth. Repeated laser hair removal treatments will permanently reduce the growth of your unwanted hairs. Why Does Laser Hair Removal Require Multiple Treatments? At any given time, the hair on our body is in one of three phases: anagen, catagen, or telogen. Laser hair removal works on hair in the anagen phase, when the hair is still attached to the follicle and actively growing. The heat from the laser will travel the down the shaft of hair, penetrate the attached follicle, and permanently destroy it. Only 30% of our hair is in the anagen phase at any given time. Therefore, while a single treatment will stop the growth of many hair follicles, patients require multiple treatments to eliminate all of their unwanted facial hair. What Will Laser Hair Removal Cost? The price of your laser hair removal will vary depending on the area being treated. Small Area: Lip, Chin, Sideburns Package of 3: $149 Medium Area: Underarms, Bikini, Brazilian Package of 3: $249 Large Area: Back, Arms, Legs Package of 3: $399 Would You Like to Eliminate Your Unwanted Facial Hair? If you are considering laser hair removal on your face or anywhere else where unwanted hair grows, then you should talk to Acqua Blu Medical Spa’s skin specialists in Pittsburgh, PA. We strive to deliver the gorgeous results that you desire in a relaxing atmosphere. To find out more about our laser hair removal treatments, please call 724-371-8571 today.

Mesoestetic® Chemical Peels

Time affects us all, and as a result, small imperfections start to appear, such as acne, shine, dilated pores, wrinkles, dull skin, and even dark spots. If we add the effects of adolescence, pregnancy or menopause, we can see that our skin tends to lose its ability to renew cells. Acqua Blu Medical Spa’s chemical peel treatments accelerate the natural flaking of the skin, eliminating dead skin cells and impurities. This provides the tissue with oxygen and reactivates mechanisms of cell regeneration. After a Mesoestetic® chemical peel, the epidermis thickens, which leaves the skin with a youthful glow that enhances elasticity and luminosity.
