22 Feb 2021 8 Ways to Maintain a Youthful Appearance
Maintaining a youthful appearance can help your skin remain soft, supple, and smooth even as you mature and age into your later years. Knowing how to maintain a youthful appearance can help to take years, if not decades, off of your appearance. Here are eight methods to try.
1. Use a Daily Moisturizer
One of the best ways to keep your skin looking youthful, glowing, and soft is to apply a daily moisturizer to your face as well as your neck area and limbs. Using a daily moisturizer will help prevent your skin from drying out, cracking, or developing wrinkles.
2. Stay Hydrated
Hydration is one of the most important elements of healthy, youthful, soft skin. If your body becomes dehydrated, your skin is much more likely to appear dry, patchy, or crusty. When your skin is drier, it is more difficult to prevent wrinkles and cracks from forming at any age.
3. Get Enough Rest
Getting adequate rest each night is imperative for those who have concerns over their appearance as well as those who prefer to look youthful as long as possible. For each individual, an average of 6 to 8 hours of sleep each night is necessary to prevent deprivation and other side effects on your skin and outward appearance.
4. Apply Sunscreen Regularly
Use a high-quality mineral-based sunscreen whenever you are spending time outdoors or in the sun. Applying a high-quality sunscreen regularly is optimal for anyone, even if you work indoors or do not spend much time outside. The right sunscreen will protect your skin from taking any damage from harmful UV rays.
5. Eat a Proper Diet
Gut health is linked with the brain and the overall function of the body. If your diet is suffering, you are much more likely to struggle with the maintenance of your skin as well as other areas of your body. Eating a healthy, clean, nutritious diet will help to provide your skin with the vitamins and nutrients it also requires in order to thrive.
Exfoliate your skin regularly to remove dirt, dust, and other types of buildup beneath the layers of your skin itself. Exfoliating will help to keep your skin protected from dirt and debris over time.
7. Avoid Consuming Too Much Caffeine and/or Alcohol
One of the best ways to provide your skin with the best care possible is to avoid consuming too much alcohol and caffeine. Caffeine and alcohol can trigger the skin to dry up or wrinkle at a much faster rate, which is why it is advisable to consume them in moderation.
8. Stay Out of the Sun
Although it can be extremely pleasing to spend an afternoon in the sun, it is imperative to avoid spending too much time in direct light to maintain your youthful appearance.
Knowing how to maintain a youthful appearance and integrating those steps and tips into your daily life can significantly help you to improve your overall appearance while turning back the clock. With the right daily routine and skin regimen, you can maintain your youthful appearance with ease for years to come.

04 Feb 2019 4 Valentine’s Day Treatments Perfect for a Couple
You want to look your best on your date, but why not primp and prep together? Neaman MediSpa is a surprisingly perfect place for a date this Valentine’s Day, as it offers a number of fast and comfortable treatments. Whether you’re looking for a unique date with your sweetheart or a way to get ready for the big night out with friends, aesthetic treatments are a fantastic way to bond.
Here are some of the best treatments for couples or groups:
1. Emsculpt. Emsculpt can target the abs, glutes, or both, all in 30-minute sessions. The non-invasive procedure forces the targeted muscles into 20,000 supramaximal contractions. That’s the equivalent of 20,000 lunges or crunches in just half an hour. Afterward, that steak dinner or protein smoothie is the perfect way to recover, feed those muscles, and relax.
2. Microneedling. This popular treatment utilizes a medical-grade hand roller with thousands of tiny needles. They’re so small they don’t even look like needles, so if you’re needle-shy, there are no worries. In a short session, the skin is gently punctured to kickstart the body’s natural healing process and collagen generation. The result is younger-looking, healthier skin with no downtime.
3. Wrinkle reduction with laser skin therapy. Neaman MediSpa features only the best, most effective, and safest lasers. Some are more aggressive and require a little downtime, but others are gentle and clients can easily go about the rest of Valentine’s Day afterward.
4. Dermal fillers. Fillers can be used nearly anywhere on the face where there is lost volume, including the cheeks and lips. A plumper pout or rounding out those cheek apples are a great way to instantly boost your self-confidence.
Increasingly, couples have been interested in undergoing treatments together. It gives clients an added element of support, and there’s a natural bond that happens when two people undergo the same experience. Schedule your Valentine’s Day treatment at Neaman MediSpa today.View More

18 May 2017 Who Knows Skin? Ask Neaman MediSpa
With all the skin care treatments and options available, why not make use of a Medispa for your skin care needs? Having an array of treatments and products under the roof on site, a plastic surgery office with a state of the art medical day spa is truly the best of both worlds.
Walk into any store or spa, and you are immediately faced with a plethora of facial skin care products that will assuredly address any concern you may have ever had about your skin. It is understandable to be overwhelmed by all of these lotions, oils, and serums and to leave with more questions than you came in with. What is the best option for my skin? Do I need this or that to maintain good skin health? Is there any science behind any of these ingredients? Will I see results? Is there such thing as a skin care analysis?
Sunscreen and Skin Care
The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is regularly damaged by the effects of sun and smoke. This results in skin that is dull and dry with sunspots or other discoloration. Additionally, aging and the repetitive movements of the face from the underlying muscles can lead to lines and wrinkles. How then can we address these changes or, better yet, prevent them? The answer is easy. Two products are an essential part of a healthy skin care regimen: sunscreen and vitamin A (retinol) derivatives.
Broad-spectrum sunscreen can dramatically improve the appearance and health of the skin. It is designed to protect your skin from ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation, which can cause direct and indirect cell and DNA damage. This results in degradation of collagen, an increase in pigment, and a decrease in cell turnover. Ultimately, this results in signs of facial photoaging, lines, pigment changes, and an overall unhealthy appearance to your skin. Daily use of sunscreen can diminish these signs. Additionally, its use can prevent skin cancers. Sunscreen should be used daily and reapplied throughout the day, rain or shine!
Vitamin A in Skin Care
Vitamin A (retinol), and its’ derivatives are powerful anti-aging ingredients. Retinoids, retinoic acid (Retin-A), tretinoins, retinaldehydes, and retinyl esters are all in the vitamin A family. They help increase collagen content in the skin to decrease fine lines and increase cell turnover. Additionally, they can be used to treat acne by decreasing cell debris that can block pores. Retinols can, however, result in skin irritation, peeling or flakiness, and sun sensitivity, so it is important to use these products with sunscreen and under the care of your plastic surgeon and medispa.
While sunscreen and vitamin A products are the biggest bang for your buck, there are many additional acids and antioxidants on the market, which may improve your skin health. It is important to consult with your plastic surgeon and medical day spa to find the right regimen for you. Together, your skin care concerns can effectively be addressed.

19 Apr 2017 Why Neaman MediSpa Prefers Spectra Laser For Photo Rejuvenation
Many people would like to improve their skin condition by reducing wrinkles, stretch marks, age spots, brown spots and even acne scars – and they choose Spectra Laser Resurfacing as it is truly the only way to go. Patients in Salem, Oregon, and surrounding communities such as Corvallis, Silverton, Albany, Wilsonville, or Stayton, who would like to take advantage using the best skin rejuvenation laser and understand other treatments, such as IPL, but these treatments are not the same.
What Are The Procedural Differences Between Spectra And IPL?
Neaman MediSpa has the latest laser skin resurfacing treatment right here in Salem, Oregon called the Spectra Laser System. The Spectra skin resurfacing uses high peak power laser energy light. The laser light has short pulse widths targeting the problem areas of the skin, whether it is melanin spots, acne scars or wrinkles. One thing that makes the Spectra Laser System one of the best is that it is ideal for all type of skin tones. Many machines are not recommended for suntanned, olive or black skin tones. Spectra has no limitations.

The length can vary depending on the actual patient’s condition and/or larger treatment area. Also, this procedure has little to no downtime and results can be seen in as little as one treatment.
Now, unlike Neaman MediSpa’s Spectra Laser, IPL (Intense pulsed light) skin rejuvenation uses a strong light that can have a variety of different wavelength bands to work on various skin conditions. The light wavelengths are delivered with a handheld device, and the light penetrates into the layers of skin once again using the body to eliminate the injured/dead skin cells. For optimal results, patients usually require about five treatments with each treatment lasting about 15-30 minutes. Because this treatment is a little less aggressive than the Spectra laser, your skin may not appear as red immediately after.
What Are The Benefits of Spectra Laser Resurfacing?
Patients no longer have to drive to Portland to receive the amazing benefits of Laser Resurfacing. Our medispa right here in Salem delivers amazing results with Spectra Laser System. Spectra removes wrinkles, acne scars, brown spots, melasma and other skin conditions. In addition to all these benefits, the treatment can also improve the overall skin texture.

I Need A Change And I Need It Now… What Treatments Will Feed The Need?
Ever get up, look in the mirror and think, “something needs to be done, and today’s the day.” You may have been thinking about doing some sort of facial rejuvenation, but for some reason, you get up and decide you are ready!
The good news is there really are a lot of choices that can be made fairly last-minute, take very little time and you will be getting some pretty amazing results. We all want what we want and we want it now…here are some truly amazing, instantly gratifying beauty treatments that will give you what you want.
Botox, Dysport and Xeomin – easily one of the best products on the market for turning back the hands of time. It may take a week or two for full effect. Not “walk out the door” instant, but well worth the wait.
Results are pretty darn instantaneous with this one! Fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma and others give you back lost volume and fills in lines and creases. The neurotoxins and dermal fillers work well together, giving you a “liquid face lift” that will take years off of you.
Chemical Peels (or Micro Peels) take 5 to 7 days for the skin to peel, and things won’t be looking too good at that point. But don’t despair, when that peeling ends, you will have a new, fresh-faced look you have not seen in years.
A favorite in any medical day spa, lip fillers are instantaneous, but temporary. This treatment gives you the plumpness and youthfulness you’re looking for.
Again, not going to happen in one day, but Kybella will singlehandedly melt away that double chin you’ve been carrying around with you. Treatments may need to be repeated several times over several months, but the results are amazing!
Medical Day Spa Treatments at Neaman MediSpa
All of these beauty treatments take very little time, are not surgeries requiring significant downtime and ultimately give results that are amazing. Neaman medical day spa has top-notch, qualified and experienced technicians that will gladly show you the way to a low-key approach to improving your looks.

23 Nov 2016 Guess what? Women Prefer A Younger Face To A Youthful Body
A small group study done by the makers of Botox, a popular anti aging injectable, found that women would rather have a youthful face over a youthful body.
Most women know what it takes to get the youthful body…hard work-good diet and lots of exercise. While, at the same time, there are minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that can quickly give you that youthful face. There are additionally a few surgical options for longer lasting results.
Non-invasive options for facial rejuvenation
- Injectables / dermal fillers – Botox, Juvederm, Voluma and Restylane are commonplace and are easy to find, are cost-effective and have quick results. They diminish wrinkles and help add volume to hollowing areas of the face.
- Chemical Peels – an overall favorite, chemical peels have varying degrees of intensity. They diminish wrinkles, help skin tone, and fade scars and discoloration. Typically more than one peel will be helpful to achieve goals.
- Photo rejuvenation – using IPL (intense pulsed light) this treats melasma, sun spots and broken capillaries. The light heats up the collagen beneath the skin to help the body produce more collagen.
- Dermabrasion – this removes the entire upper layer of skin. It is more intense than a chemical peel.
- Laser skin resurfacing – can produce smoother skin, help with skin tone diminish wrinkles and stimulates collagen growth.
Surgical options for facial rejuvenation
- Brow lift – you would be surprised at how much the brows have to do with a youthful look. Low, sagging brows give off a sad expression. When raised, you look more alert and more welcoming.
- Facelift – this is the most invasive facial procedure. Skin is pulled back around the ears and hairline to get rid of skin folds and wrinkles. This is indeed one of the most intense forms of facial rejuvenation, however, the results will last up to and sometimes beyond 10 years.
- Eyelid Surgery – also known as blepharoplasty, this procedure can take years off your look. Extra skin is removed from the eyelids reducing droopiness and many times allowing more sight.
- Neck lift – removing extra skin below the face and pulling back loose skin can be one of the most changing procedure you will encounter.

09 Jun 2016 Breaking Bad Habits That Age Your Skin
Think about what you put your body through – stress, toxins, diet, etc. Add in a genetic component and you have all the fuel you need to age before your time. You may be surprised to learn all of the ways you are prematurely aging your skin, but luckily, these habits can be broken.
Rubbing Your Eyes
Rubbing, scratching, or pulling on the fragile skin around your eyes is a habit you should avoid. The skin in this area is incredibly delicate, and excessive pressure or touching can result in darker pigmentation that will add years to your face.
Frequent weight fluctuation is a top offender of skin damage. Losing and gaining weight on a regular basis can ruin the elasticity of your skin by breaking down collagen and elastin. One of the best ways to take care of your body and skin is to feed it well with foods that include all of the necessary vitamins and minerals.
Sipping Through Straws / Smoking
Your life without a chilled latte or soda may seem incomplete, but making the “pucker” gesture to sip through a straw can contribute to fine lines around your mouth. The combination of pursed lips and suction caused by drinking through a straw creates a repetitive motion that can wrinkle skin around your lips and age your lower face. The same goes for smoking cigarettes.
Expecting Beauty Quick Fixes
Admit it – you’ve tried a hot new skin care product, gave it about 3 days of commitment, and then tossed it because it didn’t work. Here’s the truth – you didn’t give it enough time to work. A majority of anti-aging treatments take up to a month to begin showing positive effects. This is due to the cycle of your skin, which undergoes a period of cellular structure renewal over a span of 30 days.
We all love our Vitamin D time but the truth is the sun is quite damaging to your skin. Aside from skin cancer (which is generally preventable),sun damage is one of the biggest offenders for prematurely aging your skin. Additionally, exposure to those dangerous UV rays comes with a host of health risks. Although awareness is growing, many still forgo necessary precautions for preventing damage from the sun’s rays.

19 Apr 2016 Brighten Your Skin: Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels
As the spring and summer months are upon us, many of us are looking for affordable ways to make our skin look vibrant! Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and facials are quick, affordable procedures leaving your skin refreshed with no downtime. These procedures work by removing dead skin cells and stimulating new cell growth. They are also fantastic for long-term skin care maintenance following more aggressive cosmetic laser treatments.
How Chemical Peels Help
Chemical Peels are a great way to lighten your skin, reduce pore size, and improve acne. With many different types of peels available, peels can help to balance oil secretion and reduce discoloration which are great for acne-prone skin. Other types of peels include acids which help exfoliate the skin without causing excessive irritation and dryness. This cell renewal process stimulates collagen synthesis and improves elastin fibers in the skin.
Chemical Peel Side Effects and Recovery
Slight redness, skin sensitivity and skin tightness usually persist no longer than a day. After a series of peels you can expect improvement in the appearance of superficial lines and pigment while making your skin look softer, smoother and more radiant. Three treatments are recommended 2 to 3 weeks apart and then maintenance treatments are recommended every 1 to 3 months for optimal long-term results.
What is Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a way of gently removing the stratum corneum, which is the dead outer protective layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion simultaneously infuses products that can hydrate, lighten, tighten pores and reduce acne. These enhancements offer better results and leave the skin hydrated, not dry or peeling as with traditional microdermabrasion. These procedures are adjustable from extremely light to very aggressive so we can tailor the treatment to each patient and his or her goals. Even the most sensitive-skin individual may benefit from a silk peel that has been adjusted for their skin type.
How Microdermabrasion Helps
Our highly effective diamond microdermabrasion treatment is one of the most innovative and sought after means to achieve younger looking, healthier skin. Microdermabrasion smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles and stimulates collagen and elastin production to increase firmness.
The cutting edge mechanical technology employed in this treatment uses microscopic diamond chips to smooth away superficial fine lines. Microcurrent electrical therapy is then applied to boost circulation, which helps to tone facial muscles for a younger looking appearance.
Several processes occur in the skin following microdermabrasion treatment. The epidermis, or outermost layer of the skin, begins producing new cells more rapidly after your appointment, and the cells themselves form more consistent layers within the skin. This deeper layer of the skin, the dermis, increases in thickness due to an increase in collagen production. In a sense, this therapeutic treatment damages the skin in such a way that it heals itself in a healthier way, to help your skin look younger and more luminous.
For best results, we recommend a package of four to six microdermabrasion facials, with treatments every two to four weeks, to achieve dramatic results. After a full round of treatments, you can expect your skin to look younger and more vibrant, with a rejuvenated glow and more even skin tone.
