When stress and overworking yourself are part of your everyday life, your skin and face show it. While it can be difficult to fit in any time for yourself, it can be very important to your overall health to do so. One way to pamper yourself is to make an appointment at a medical spa like Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Specialists. This type of facility is different than going to a typical day spa. Here are just a few of the benefits you will receive after a visit.
Fine lines, wrinkles, and dry skin can make you appear older than you are. This can make you self-conscious enough that you "hide in the background" instead of saying and doing what you want or think is right. In a work situation, having the self-esteem to make suggestions and do things above and beyond your duties will get the attention of the boss and possibly a promotion or pay raise. When you look better, you feel better about yourself and this will encourage you to eat healthier and exercise more so you are healthier in general.
Diagnose Medical Issues
A medical spa will have a licensed doctor on staff. While this person may not be the one performing all the treatments you receive, they will be overseeing everything done to you. If there is any concern about a treatment or any sign that you may have an undiagnosed medical problem, the doctor will request that testing be done before the treatment continues. This could be an issue as minor as a vitamin deficiency or as serious as a cancerous lesion.
When you go to a day spa and have a facial, the results last for a few days. However, at a medical spa, the treatments offered are longer lasting. The results can last for 6 to 8 weeks. In addition, the types of treatments you receive at a medical spa can have effects that grow with each treatment, meaning the results will last longer after each visit.
You not only deserve to take care of yourself for your own health, but to be able to handle your day-to-day tasks more effectively. You friends and family deserve to have you at your best. It is hard to be your best when you don't feel your best. Taking care of yourself helps you to better take care of everyone around you. If you don't feel you can take the time or spare the expense for yourself, do it for them.
