Should You Go To A Spa Or A Medical Spa?

19 Apr 2019 Should You Go To A Spa Or A Medical Spa?

Not all spas are created equal. They can all be relaxing and offer a little bit of pampering but when it comes to what they have to offer – medical spas, such as Neaman MediSpa, top the charts. That doesn’t mean you should never visit a day spa. Where you should book your next appointment entirely depends on what you are looking to have performed and the results you are looking to achieve.

The Difference Between The Two – Spa vs. MediSpa

Traditional Day Spa

These establishments typically offer non-invasive procedures and treatments that are purely centered around relaxation and making you feel good. Sure, you may achieve some pretty positive physical results following a facial at a traditional day spa but, more than likely, they won’t be long-lasting or as dramatic as you would receive had you went to a medical spa for your skin care facial.

Most of the services offered at a day spa are performed by licensed therapists who are trained to perform that particular service you are receiving such as hair styling, manicures, massages or steam treatments. Depending on what your needs are, a day spa can be rather inviting as it will ease the stress from your life for a brief period of time.

MediSpa or Medical Spa

A medical spa such as Neaman MediSpa under the direction of Dr. Keith Neaman, may offer services similar to day spas including facials and massages but they also offer medical treatments that one might find performed at a doctor’s office. Because medical spas are run under the guidance of a licensed physician, they are able to make available more advanced cosmetic enhancements such as dermal fillers and injectables, skin resurfacing, laser therapy, non-invasive body contouring and much more. All treatments are performed by experienced and certified professionals that have received the proper training in procedures. The environment of a medical spa reflects that of a spa but in a pleasant comfortable medical fashion.

Spas are great but medical spas are really great. It’s like having the best of both worlds – you get to look and feel good.

Help for Acne and Scar Reduction

08 Feb 2019 Help for Acne and Scar Reduction
Posted at 05:00h in Acne Scarring 0 Likes

Many people think that acne is a problem plaguing teenagers, and that once we’re “adults” it ceases to be an issue. Neaman MediSpa treats a number of patients who realize that, unfortunately, that isn’t true. Not only is acne common in adults, but the scars it leaves can also be lifelong. The good news is that there is help for both conditions, but over the counter, treatments are rarely enough.

Acne is a dermatological issue, but because it’s so common (in people of all ages) it’s often not taken seriously. However, there are many types of acne. Some are relatively mild, such as whiteheads. Others are severe, like cystic acne. Severe acne should be treated immediately for pain relief and to minimize the risk of scarring. Still, all acne can hurt self-esteem and lead to scarring. It’s a medical condition that deserves treatment.

There are a number of factors that play a role in acne, including hormone fluctuations and bacteria. Understanding what type of acne you have is foundational, and requires a diagnosis by a dermatologist. The next step is designing an acne treatment plan based on the acne type and your goals. This can range from prescription topical treatments to oral medications.

Simultaneously, steps might need to be taken to reduce scarring. There are many options for this, including laser skin treatments. Minimizing scarring is essential for a person’s self-confidence. Studies have also shown that people with clear skin are generally seen as more attractive, more successful, and naturally have a leg up on the competition whether it’s romantic or professional.

Schedule an Appointment with Neaman MediSpa Today!

Only a medical professional can determine the best acne scarring treatment for you. It can include chemical peels, a series of laser therapy s11essions, microneedling, and more. What’s important to remember is that there is help and tools available. Start tackling your acne and scarring today by scheduling an appointment with Neaman MediSpa at 844-338-5445.

MediSpa vs. Spa: What’s the Difference?

15 Nov 2018 MediSpa vs. Spa: What’s the Difference?

You say spa; we say relaxation! And now is the perfect time to treat yourself to a little R and R. It’s kind of the calm before the storm – the storm being the bustling holiday season. When you’re trying to decide where to go to get your rejuvenation on, it can be a little confusing. Do you go to a medispa, such as Neaman MediSpa, or just a regular day spa? We know, they both say spa, but there is some considerable difference between the two that you need to keep in mind when booking your next appointment.

MediSpa – The Best of Two Worlds

Most people are familiar with the idea of a spa. It’s a place where you can go and get pampered with massages, wraps, facials and manicures/pedicures. Pure relaxation at its best. A medispa, however, is a combination of a relaxing day spa and a medical clinic. It’s kind of the best of both worlds because you not only get to be pampered and rejuvenate your skin and body, but you get to do so with medical-grade treatments, such as Botox, microdermabrasion, microneedling and non-invasive body contouring.

Medispas are operated under the care of a licensed medical professional with all treatments performed by trained specialists that have expert knowledge that goes beyond their scope of work. For example, both a day spa and medispa have licensed aestheticians, but at a medispa, aestheticians are knowledgeable on medical-grade skin care lines that you can usually find at a dermatologist’s office. Day spa products used and sold are not medical grade and tend to produce less effective results as they are typically used for pampering and quick fixes. Medispa treatments are performed to create long-lasting results, especially when it comes to skin care treatments such as laser hair removal and laser-based acne treatments.

What you need to ask yourself is, “are you looking for a treatment that just pampers or are you looking for real, long-term results?” Spas are wonderful as well as medispas just with the added advantage of being able to offer patients a combination of services. Bottom line, choose the environment that best suits your needs and sit back and relax.

Relax and Get Rejuvenated at Neaman MediSpa #1 MediSpa of Mid-Valley

No matter what your needs are, Neaman MediSpa has got you covered. With a wide range of services and a relaxing and inviting environment, you’ll leave our offices feeling renewed. Contact Neaman MediSpa at 844-338-5445 to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled experts and see what all we have to offer to help you look and feel your best.

Fighting Acne Scars With A One-Two Punch

25 Jan 2018 Fighting Acne Scars With A One-Two Punch

There is always a point in which people are fed up with dealing with the embarrassing scars that can remain long after your acne has cleared up. There are several options available to treat and fade acne scars. Finding the right one can be overwhelming with so many different treatments out there—it can be challenging to know which one will be right for your specific type of acne scarring.

Acne is a frustrating skin condition that affects a large portion of society; however, luckily there is fantastic help at Neaman MediSpa.

Fighting Acne Scarring With Infini

Infini, one of the most popular acne scarring treatments, is a microneedling technique that uses radio frequency to penetrate the skin. Through this process, the skin is forced to regenerate and heal itself. It’s a 2-in-1 treatment of sorts. The radio frequency heat provides the benefit of skin tightening, while the microneedling treatment actually remodels the skin to improve the overall tone and texture. In turn, the appearance of acne scarring is reduced tremendously.

Active acne is also reduced, as the heat of the radio frequency helps to destroy the enlarged sebaceous glands that lead to serious breakouts. Whether you’ve suffered from acne in the past or are currently suffering from acne, Infini is a wonderful treatment option.

Infini Microneedling is a procedure that requires a bit of local anesthetic, which is applied topically. With that, the level of discomfort patients feel is minimal. It is most often recommended to do three treatments, however, in some cases, one treatment may provide the result you desire.

Chemical Peels For Acne Scarring

As you may know, MediSpas offer chemical peels, and they are an excellent way to fade acne scars. Chemical peels work by exfoliating or peeling the top layers of skin away and eventually getting off the raised layers of the scar closer to the base. As you get closer to the base, the scar looks smoother and will begin to fade away.

Most often, chemical peels require very little downtime and compared to other treatments, don’t require a lot of expense. Chemical peels do need a certain level of commitment because most of the time it will take a series of chemical peels to get rid of all the acne scars. If you are someone who can designate a longer period of downtime after a chemical peel, you may consider getting a deep peel, which will most assuredly speed up the process quite a bit.

Microdermabrasion To Fight Acne Scars

Microdermabrasion is a treatment that works similarly to chemical peels, but it is a slower process unless a more aggressive approach is taken. The top layer of skin is actually exfoliated off leaving a glowing look on the skin. Removing the top layer of the skin also removes the raised portion of the scar.

Again, a series of the microdermabrasion needs to be committed to. They usually work slower than chemical peels unless the person agrees to a more aggressive approach.

Acne Treatment at Neaman MediSpa

Should you be looking for a medispa in the Salem area, Neaman MediSpa should be your choice. Neaman MediSpa has options because acne scarring is unique to each person. The depth of scarring, duration of scars, and age when scarring began are all factors that will determine which treatment is right for you.

At Neaman MediSpa, qualified clinical aestheticians will examine you, review your history and come up a plan that will eliminate the acne scarring that you have been dealing with for what has probably been years. For your complimentary consultation, give Neaman Medispa a call at (844) 338-5445. We will come up with a viable plan that works for you.

Acne Or Rosacea? Knowing The Difference

02 Nov 2017 Acne Or Rosacea? Knowing The Difference

The most common signs of rosacea are also the most common signs of acne. Plain and simply stated, this is why the two skin conditions are confused and often misdiagnosed.

Unfortunately, rosacea has many times been historically referred to as “acne rosacea.” This would, of course, make you believe that the two conditions are related. However, it is now clear that there is no connection between acne and rosacea. This has often led to some confusion by the patients, and rosacea sufferers with bumps and pimples, may well mistakenly self-diagnose themselves as having acne. The two disorders require very different treatments and acne medications may even cause rosacea symptoms to get worse.

Getting To Know Rosacea

Rosacea Areas Affected: The central area of the face, usually including the nose, chin and cheeks and sometimes forehead.

Rosacea Symptoms: Tiny dilated blood vessels become visible and create redness. Bumps and pimples appear as the inflammation and redness continues. The eyes may appear bloodshot and feel dry and gritty. Additionally, the nose may become swollen in severe cases.

Rosacea Treatments: Your skin care specialist, after careful diagnosis, can prescribe oral and or topical medications. Also, speaking to your doctor about possible lifestyle changes may help to control rosacea symptoms.

Knowing Acne

Acne Areas Affected: Acne is primarily found on the face; however, it can be active on the back, shoulders, and chest.

Acne Symptoms: The skin becomes oily due to over-active sebaceous glands. A variety of lesions develop with blackheads usually in predominance.

Acne Treatment: Prescription medications and various skin treatments are offered by your physician. A consultation with your skin care specialist will determine the best route for you to take.

At Neaman MediSpa, we are here to help. We know how frustrating and complicated the treatment of rosacea and acne can be. We have had much success with various treatments for both rosacea and acne.

Complimentary Consultations at Neaman MediSpa

Neaman MediSpa serving Salem and surrounding areas, would like to offer you a complimentary consultation to help you determine exactly which fight you are up against, and come up with a very specific plan to control and hopefully eliminate your rosacea or acne symptoms.

Fighting Acne With A One-Two Punch

05 Oct 2017 Fighting Acne With A One-Two Punch
Posted at 05:26h in Acne Scarring 0 Likes

Fighting pounds is one thing, but fighting acne can be a whole different battle. It’s high time to realize that acne is a war a healthy diet can help you win. So skip the sugary treats and trans fat snacks as your first defense, then load up on these acne-fighting foods.

Brazil Nuts

Really? Brazil Nuts? Yes! This acne-fighting food is loaded with selenium and just one or two nuts fulfill your need for the entire day. Selenium is super important when it comes to your skin health and fighting acne because this mineral acts as an antioxidant, helping to decrease inflammation, known to cause acne.

Help clear your skin by adding these nuts as an on-the-go snack, or you can crush them and put them on top of your yogurt or oatmeal.

Pumpkin Seeds

These oval-shaped seeds are rich in phytonutrients, phytosterols, and minerals including manganese, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. Zinc, in particular, has strong antioxidant powers and also has been shown to reduce the production of sebum, known to be a cause of acne. Use these little pepitas to top a salad, or bake them into healthy muffins.

Green Tea

This is your go-to for hydration and should be added to everyone’s routine as a healthy dose of acne-fighting antioxidants. Dehydration can cause swelling and puffy skin and a slowed response to acne medication or skin treatments.

Carrots

Loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene (a carotenoid that gives them their well-known orange glow), eating these veggies can help reduce acne and prevent blemishes by reducing inflammation and encouraging cell turnover (natural exfoliation). It also helps strengthen your skin’s defense against the bacteria that can cause unwanted acne flare-ups. Eat your carrots!

Salmon

This fish is loaded with omega-3s, essential fatty acids that play a role in fighting inflammation and making your skin glow.

Tomatoes

Loaded with vitamin C and bioflavonoids, tomatoes are good for your immune system and also are amazing for your skin, because of their antioxidant properties. We know antioxidants are the good guy compounds that fight the bad guy free radicals that cause inflammation. So start popping those tomatoes and stop popping the pimples.

MediSpa Acne Treatments

There are many things you can do to stave off acne, however, if acne had its hold on you in your past life, don’t despair. Many treatments can help you with the scarring and redness you may be dealing with. Hollywood Laser Peels, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion are just a few of the effective treatments available.

New Hope For Acne And Scarring

14 Jun 2017 New Hope For Acne And Scarring

Infini, Spectra, CO2 and ZO are all amazing treatments that aid in solving the constant embarrassment that acne scarring can bring with it, and Neaman MediSpa, serving Salem and surrounding areas, have them all. Over the years the development of new laser and skin care techniques is encouraging, because, if you have acne, you are well aware of the fight you have on your hands.

Acne can result in scarring that can be a source of great anxiety for many patients. Neaman MediSpa offers a wide variety of ablative and nonablative laser treatments to significantly improve acne scarring. Precision injections of various dermal fillers can help improve the appearance of acne scarring and developing a customized treatment plan with our patients is our ultimate goal. We want to meet their expectations.

Choices For Acne And Acne Scarring

ZO Skin Care

Great skin care is always recommended, especially when treating acne and scarring. ZO Skin offers a unique set of bioengineered complexes and formulations. This combined with unique delivery systems provides all patients regardless of age, gender or ethnicity the ability to obtain healthy skin. ZO products restore the skin health by targeting skin abnormalities at the cellular level. ZO Skin Health helps you maintain skin that is smooth, even colored, hydrated, and firm.

Infini RF Microneedling Technology

The Infini uses micro needling combined with high intensity focused radio frequency to improve and rejuvenate the skin from the inside out and is especially effective at treating acne and other scarring such as stretch marks. Infini’s RF delivery eliminates thermal damage to the skin’s surface providing faster healing without prolonged downtime.  Depending on treatment settings and your goals for improvement, there may be as little as 2-3 days of downtime. It allows for a quick and easy recovery compared to the CO2 laser resurfacing and can be used on all skin types. Patients may experience slight redness for several days after the treatment. Several treatments may be required, but treatments are quick and comfortable.

The Spectra Treatment

The Spectra Laser for acne is a gentle procedure that you can have one or in a series. You will see better results with a series if you have acne. Most of our patients report feeling a warm sensation and a slight prickling feeling. There is no need for topical anesthesia. With no downtime associated with the Spectra Laser, you may return to your daily activities right away with minimal side effects.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

CO2 Laser resurfacing is an ablative modality, which means it uses bipolar radiofrequency energy to heat and ablate just below the surface of the skin, which results in the producing of new collagen, leaving behind smoother, brighter and tighter looking skin.  These newer bipolar radiofrequency modalities remove tiny bits of skin beneath the skin surface, which decreases the amount of downtime and postoperative risks associated with older treatment modalities.

There is minimal discomfort during this short procedure, as a topical anesthetic is applied. Patients can expect two to three days of a sunburn type feeling and redness. For more aggressive treatments with CO2 laser resurfacing, patients can expect this feeling to last about a week.

Schedule a Free Acne Scarring Consultation with Neaman MediSpa

If you would like to improve your active acne or acne scarring, please contact Neaman MediSpa at (844) 338-5445 and schedule your free consultation with one of our highly trained aestheticians. We welcome patients from the greater Portland, Salem and Eugene area.

Free Radicals And Acne: The Link

02 Mar 2017 Free Radicals And Acne: The Link
Posted at 05:59h in Acne Scarring 0 Likes

Free radicals and Acne – After years and years of not understanding acne, there may now be a link. Free radicals are molecules that are released by UV light, or sunshine and the air pollution that these particles come into contact with cause the problem. These molecules destroy the collagen, damage DNA, and cause dark spots and acne. What happens is the free radicals cause inflammation, causing blockage of the pores and subsequently an acne breakout.

For many years acne and the scars that result from acne has been treated the same way. Pimples and breakouts were blamed on dirty skin, bacteria, and sebum. The way to combat free radicals is with antioxidants. Clearly, free radicals are not the only cause of acne breakouts, but they make things much worse.

At Neaman MediSpa we are here to help. There are many wonderful and effective products available to patients experiencing the effects of acne and its subsequent acne scarring. Vitamin C and the essential antioxidants are contained in many of our innovative products.

Contact our caring professionals at Dr. Neaman’s office (844) 338-5445 and get started on a skin regimen that will bring you the clearer more vibrant skin that you desire.

Combating The Aging Process…Oh, yes…It Can Be Done!

15 Nov 2016 Combating The Aging Process…Oh, yes…It Can Be Done!

There are a few telltale signs of aging, but nothing a little Botox and dermal fillers can’t help with right? The signs of aging come on gradually and reveal themselves over time, but suddenly, they all seem to converge. That’s the bad news. But, thankfully there are ways to help improve them to some extent. Individual results may vary of course so we invite you to consult with our team to discuss your particular case.*

Listed below are the dreaded telltale signs of aging and the treatments that help ease or repair them:

Skin – sun damage, redness and sun spots:

  • Chemical peels – The use of a chemical solution to remove the damaged layer of skin, improving color and texture.
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) facial – literally lifts the effects of sun damage on your face, giving you the radiant skin you used to have. It is a short procedure where intense light causes collagen and blood vessels to constrict, reducing redness and lines.
  • Laser skin resurfacing – removes the top layer of skin, producing new cells. More radiant and tighter skin is a result.

 

Large pores / rough texture

  • Microdermabrasion – rough grains buff away a dull complexion, dark spots and uneven texture. It’s basically a light peel.
  • Dermabrasion – An intense procedure that completely resurfaces the skin.
  • Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy – (as seen above).

 

Eyes – drooping skin on corners and eyelids

  • Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery that corrects droopy eyelids by removing the extra skin, muscle and fat that is weighing down the eyelids. It not only gives a youthful appearance, but also allows for better vision.
  • Botox helps to loosen the nerves and make skin appear smooth and wrinkle free.

 

Dark circles under eyes

 

Cheeks

  • A mid face lift helps mid face sagging by removing excess skin and tightening tissue and muscles.
  • Dermal fillers add volume to the cheeks and contour the overall look.

 

Neck- usually the first place to show signs of age

  • Neck lift destroys the dreaded “turkey neck” and tightens the skin and muscles and improves jawline
  • Kybella – an injection that destroys fat tissue and tightens up the neck. It freezes fat cells and the body eliminates them.

 

Lips – they thin with age

 

Nose – widens with age and tip may droop

 

Thinking of all these issues at once can be overwhelming and undermine the fact that everything is in some way either fixable or can be improved to some degree. It’s best to choose a problem area and focus on that.

Schedule a Consultation with Neaman Plastic Surgery and MediSpa

Choosing a well-trained, board certified plastic surgeon is your first step toward finding your younger self. Together you can discuss what is bothering you about your individual aging process and find the most beneficial procedures to enhance your looks now and into the future. Please call 844-338-5445 to set up your complimentary medical day spa consultation with Neaman MediSpa or to book a one-on-one appointment with Dr. Keith Neaman to discuss surgical options.
