Three Beauty Treatments to Bring Out Your Inner Diva

Three Beauty Treatments to Bring Out Your Inner Diva

The hubbub of everyday life can be overwhelming, making you forget self-care in the chaos of caring for everyone and everything else. At Beauty and Beauty and Body by Mia, we encourage you to nurture your inner diva with three beauty treatments designed to help you feel relaxed and beautiful. Our job is empowerment, helping you indulge and take care of yourself for once. 

Here are our three recommended beauty treatments and how they can influence and improve how you feel about yourself. 

Self-Care and Embracing Your Inner Goddess

Your inner goddess is waiting! Embrace self-care with the same zeal that you embrace life and love. Self-care means a confidence boost and inner peace, pampering yourself to the absolute limit to find happiness and a sense of calm in the hustle and bustle of your daily doings. Building your self-esteem should be a priority, and we at Beauty and Body by Mia know that feeling good—mentally, physically, and spiritually—empowers you to take on life’s challenges with strength and confidence. 

The Ultimate Glow in a Hydrafacial 

Hydrafacials imbue your skin cells with ultimate hydration, bringing out your inner glow to help you feel better about the skin you’re in. Wrinkles, cracks, age spots, and fine lines are buffered away, leaving smoother, softer skin that shines with radiance, youth, and beauty. We cleanse and exfoliate your skin first, then use a vacuum-based tool to remove impurities, like clogged pores and dead skin cells, before smoothing in antioxidant-rich serums. 

Aging Gracefully with Botox and Fillers 

Botox and fillers are popular injectable treatments that reduce wrinkles, and smooth skin, and make you look younger for longer. These treatments help to relax the muscles in your face while also controlling elastin and volume, defining your natural contours. Results are noticeable within a few days, and last for several months. 

Liposonix for Curvier, Tighter Contours 

This non-invasive procedure delivers targeted fat reduction to smooth cellulite for a sleeker, tighter silhouette. This treatment encourages your body’s natural ability to metabolize fat cells, giving you a contoured appearance with VA-VA-VOOM curves. Most effective for your abdomen, thighs, love handles, back, and upper arms, Liposonix guarantees noticeable, beautiful results in 8-12 weeks. 

Indulge in a Full Day of Pampering! 

Have you ever had a full day of self-care? Pamper yourself like a queen at Beauty and Body by Mia! Our body treatments include scrubs, wraps, and detoxifications, all to refresh your skin and make yourself feel like a million bucks. The benefits? Rejuvenation, holistic self-care, and complete relaxation!  

B12 Injections for Better Mind, Body, and Spirit

B12 Injections for Better Mind, Body, and Spirit

Vitamin B12 is vital to your health and wellness with the primary function of formulating red blood cells to help maintain your nervous system. This essential nutrient is found in animal-based foods, like meat, fish, eggs, and some dairy products, but Body by Mia has isolated its nutritional value with B12 injections to better your mind, body, and spirit. 

Did you know that B12 injections are good for anyone with dietary restrictions? Due to allergies and strong aversions, not everyone can consume the kinds of foods with B12 nutrients. However, injections won’t lead to allergic flairs or unsavory aftertastes, making them an ideal choice for someone with a limited diet. 

Signs and Symptoms of Vitamin B12 Deficiencies

Deficiencies in Vitamin B12 lead to various health issues, especially if left unaddressed. Some signs and symptoms to look for include: 

  • Weakness and unexplained exhaustion. The fatigue may feel chronic, and it’s due to a lack of healthy red blood cells. 
  • Numbness, tingling, and “pins and needles” feeling in the arms and legs, are typically indicative of a poorly functioning nervous system. 
  • Poor cognitive function, such as memory loss or problems holding focus or concentration. 
  • Mood swings and extreme depressive or anxious episodes. You may feel explosive one minute, then sobbing the next. 
  • Mouth ulcers or inflammation of the lips. 

For the Mind 

Supportive of mental health and cognitive wellness, Vitamin B12 benefits brain health by alleviating depression, reducing brain fog, and enhancing decision-making skills. It also supports strong memory recall. 

For the Body 

Vitamin B12 injections promote physical wellness by improving vitality, supporting healthy weight management through enhanced metabolic function, and strengthening cardiac function. It aids in the breakdown of fats and the use of energy, helping you shed excess weight to maintain a healthier, happier physique and life overall. 

For the Spirit

Feeling better with Vitamin B12 extends to your emotional well-being as the injections help you stress less and promote a calmer, more peaceful state of mind. It also creates harmony between your mind and body by balancing energy levels. 

The Injection Process and What to Expect 

Usually in either the arm or thigh muscles, Vitamin B12 injections are quick pinches with minor side effects, like soreness at the injection site. You should see an improvement in how you feel, such as increased energy levels and better moods, within a few days of the initial injection.

Rejuvenate Your Skin with RF Microneedling

Rejuvenate Your Skin with RF Microneedling

RF microneedling, or radiofrequency microneedling, is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at teaching your skin to heal itself. Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin imperfections are caused in part due to low levels of collagen. As we age, our bodies produce less of it than in our youth. It’s possible to restore lost collagen with fillers and other treatments on the market, but radiofrequency microneedling stimulates your body to produce it!

What Is the Procedure?

When you undergo microneedling, your trained skincare expert will use tiny, fine needles to prick your skin and create small wounds in the top layer of your skin. Radiofrequency microneedling adds in radiofrequency waves. They’re generated by an LED light and produce thermal energy.

Essentially, the combination of tiny needles and radiofrequency waves prompt your body to respond as if it’s healing a wound. It ramps up the production of collagen, which can fill in fine lines and wrinkles, along with healing stubborn skin problems like old acne scars and large pores. Rather than add in something or cover up an issue, microneedling prompts your body to take care of it itself. It’s more like a helping hand (or many ultra-small helping hands) than anything.

What to Expect

Because the procedure creates many small wounds in the skin, expect a bit of discomfort. Usually, things are back to normal within 24 hours but prepare for a short amount of downtime just after your procedure. For the best procedure possible, there are a few things to avoid before microneedling.

  • Retin A
  • Retinol
  • Vitamin A Treatments
  • Other topical medications
  • Blood thinners (one week prior to treatment)

Following your treatment, it’s highly recommended that you do not use any active skincare for at least 24 hours and avoid direct sunlight, swimming, or activity that could cause sweating.

If you continue to experience discomfort after 24 hours or it feels more intense, reach out to your doctor or skincare expert with any questions. In general, people recover from radiofrequency microneedling quickly and without issue.

New Year, New You: HIFU Skin Tightening

New Year, New You: HIFU Skin Tightening

The holidays are behind us, and we get just a little bit older with every passing minute. We’ve shopped and cooked and made everyone merry. Now, it’s time to turn our attention to ourselves. Why not celebrate the New Year with a gift all your own?

Aging is the ultimate bane of everyone’s existence. Growing older has us seeing lines where there were none before and skin that sags in all the wrong places. The good news is there are techniques we can employ to stop, well slow, the signs of aging. It’s a New Year, so why not bring in a new you with HIFU skin tightening treatments?

What Is HIFU Skin Tightening?

High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a non-invasive treatment to combat facial aging. HIFU creates heat deep within the layers of skin using ultrasound. The ultrasound targets specific skin cells with heat, causing damage, which the body repairs using naturally produced collagen. Collagen is what gives skin its structure and elasticity.

When you think of ultrasound, you likely think of medical imaging, but this kind of ultrasound is different. HIFU is a high-intensity ultrasound that uses high-energy waves to target specified points of the body. Nonsurgical ultrasound treatments can (according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery):

  • Smooth facial wrinkles
  • Tighten neck skin
  • Smooth and tighten chest skin
  • Lift eyelids or eyebrows that have begun to droop
  • Reduce the appearance of jowls

Is HIFU for Everyone?

Because the high-frequency ultrasound beams are focused on specific tissue areas, there should be no damage to the upper layers of skin or the connecting tissues. The treatment isn’t appropriate for everyone. Generally, people older than 30 with mild-to-moderate skin sagging are the prime candidates for the procedure.

People who have more skin sagging or who have skin that has been damaged by the sun may not see results as quickly as other candidates. Older individuals with more extensive skin laxity or extensive sun damage typically aren’t good candidates for the procedure. Sometimes, these individuals require surgery to correct the sagging and damage to their skin.

Skin lesions or infections also prevent people from getting this treatment. It’s also not recommended for those with metallic implants in or around the treatment area or those with severe acne.

(HIFU) High-intensity focused ultrasound is a popular non-invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation and body contouring. . It can reduce loose skin and give you a more youthful appearance while also improving lymphatic system operation and more.

HIFU delivers more precise and more intense fractional ultrasound energy while RF is based on a bulk heating strategy. HIFU goes deeper into and beyond the dermis, being able to reach the SMAS layer. RF, on the other hand, will not go as deep as HIFU as it focuses on epidermal lavers and does not go beyond the deep dermis. HIFU is generally performed as a single treatment, RF may require several sessions.

Mia can deliver precise treatments to your problem areas, reducing fat pockets and addressing aging-related problems. The result is firmer, younger, vibrant skin.

What are the body’s benefits?

For skin rejuvenation, HIFU is expected to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as lift and tighten the skin. For body sculpting, HIFU may help remove stubborn pockets of fat, while improving the appearance of the skin.

HIFU can:

  • Contour body areas such as the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen
  • Lift sagging skin on the face, such as the brows, jowls, jawline, and mid-face
  • Reduce lines and folds around the mouth, such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines
  • Lift the neck and décolleté
  • Rejuvenate the skin and improve its overall appearance

The treatment is fast, taking around 45-60 minutes with minimal to no recovery time. While some effects of the treatment can be seen initially, the full result will take several months and will improve over time. Often only one treatment session is needed, but some patients require multiple treatments. Results last from 18 months to three years, depending on the type of device used and the area treated.

Who Is the Best Candidate for High intensity focused ultrasound?

HIFU is considered a very safe treatment in the hands of Mia from Beauty & Body buy Mia,  but there are still potential side effects to consider.
