Post-Surgical Massages / Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Pre & Post Liposuction, Tummy tucks, Breast Augmentation, Breast Implants, Brazilian Butt Lift, and other cosmetic surgeries.
Lymphatic Massage is ideal for a full and effective recovery after any type of surgery. It is the base of all treatments, and our specialists recommend starting with this type of massage at two or three days after the date of the surgery, taking into account the patients general condition.
The manual lymphatic massage main objective is to eliminate fluids and toxins that stagnate due to the rupture of lymphatic vessels in the area of the surgery and that cannot be eliminated by the circulatory system because of its large size and quantity.
The lymphatic massage (lymphatic drainage massage) can be manual or assisted by specialized teams and involves maneuvering and slow movements in and nearby the affected areas. Maneuvers and movements are usually painless according to the patient’s condition.
The lymphatic massage will be applied in sessions with a maximum duration of 45 minutes to one hour each. Our recommendation is at least 5 sessions of lymphatic massage for patients, and between 10 and 12 sessions is the ideal number of lymphatic massage that each patient should receive.

Botox / Dysport/ Xeomin
Botox (Allergan), Dysport (Galderma) and Xeomin (Merz) are all injectable neuromodulators, meaning they can temporarily alter the nerve impulses of targeted muscles, therefore reducing or eliminating contraction-induced wrinkles.
Each brand has a slightly different formulation of the same substance, bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, or Botulinum Toxin A, but they all work the same way: they block the nerve impulses of the injected muscles to temporarily paralyze muscle movements that cause wrinkles. The most common targets are horizontal lines across the forehead and perpendicular frown lines between the brows (also called “The Elevens”), but many also rely on Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin for crow’s feet, nasal squint lines, lines around the neck, eyebrow lifting, and even profuse underarm sweating and migraines.
The effects are confined to the injection zone and do not affect the surrounding areas or travel around the body, as commonly feared.
By reducing the intensity and frequency of contraction-induced wrinkles, these treatments also prevent the formation of deeper lines in the long run, making them an increasingly popular anti-aging strategy.
Did you know that many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss? It’s true. As facial tissues thin out, lines become etched around the nose and mouth and cheeks look a little hollow. Dermal fillers can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and restore a more youthful appearance. At New Life Med Spa we offer Restylane , Restylane Lyft, Volvella, Juvederm, Radiesse and Sculptra , all FDA approved.
How Can Dermal Fillers Enhance My Appearance?
While dermal fillers are casually known as “wrinkle fillers”, they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles, although they are excellent at this too! Here are a few of the common issues dermal fillers can help address:
- Smooth out lines around nose and mouth. (marionette lines, smile lines,
- Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks.
- Diminish vertical lip lines
- Plump & enhance the lips
- Smooth out a chin crease
Ultherapy treats the deep layers of skin tissue without disturbing the surface of the skin
The Non-invasive Lift
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look from your brow to your chest!
Safe Ultrasound. No Surgery.
Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in over half a million treatments worldwide.
Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer.
This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks.
- Improve age spots and black heads.
- Improve hyperpigmentation (patches of darkened skin).
- Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
- Lessen the appearance of stretch marks.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores.
- Treat acne and the scars left by acne.
Microdermabrasion helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Procedure May Improve Facial Appearance
PRP facials are a new approach appealing to clients seeking a more natural method to facial rejuvenation. PRP facials can: Smooth out wrinkles around the eyes Make wrinkles on or around the lips disappear Hide acne scars and marks Eliminate wrinkles on the forehead Reduce wrinkles on the neck Diminish bags and dark circles under the eyes Tighten loose and saggy skin Results may last up to several years Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. Platelets contain growth factors; when applied to the skin, they can stimulate the growth of collagen. Collagen plumps the skin, giving it a youthful and supple appearance. PRP for facial rejuvenation has been used since 2006. It can be used to smooth out wrinkles and areas around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, neck, and jawline. PRP uses your body’s own platelets to bolster collagen production, resulting in younger-looking skin. The procedure starts with a simple blood draw. The blood is then processed and separates platelets and other growth factors in the blood. The mix of platelets and growth factors is then injected into areas of the face affected by aging. It’s that simple.
Lipo Cavitation & Radio Frequency
Ultrasound Fat Cavitation and Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Lose Unwanted Inches and Cellulite with the World’s Latest Technology. Have the body you’ve always dreamed of.
This is a new revolutionary procedure which takes us to a new level, offering outstanding slimming results and the ability to look years younger in weeks.
New Life Med Spa offers the latest, revolutionary treatments to obtain a slim body, increase collagen production, dissolve fat, and tighten the skin. This non-invasive, painless procedure is designed to give people of both genders, great results without surgery.
This method is not a weight loss program, it is particularly designed for the reduction of stubborn fat deposits that won’t go away with diet and exercise, such as abdomen, arms, thighs, back and hips. During each session only one area is treated.
The procedure takes place in four stages.
The slimming treatment – Lipo cavitation and the Mono-Polar RF lipolysis, dissolves fat cells and gives immediate slimming results.
Once the slimming treatment is finished the application of a vacuum drainage technique is used, followed by Tri -Polar Radio Frequency skin tightening. This is the best approach to reduce cellulite and any sagging skin related to the loss of fat from that area.
Hydration is a very important component of the successful Cavitation treatment. You need to drink at least 2 litres of water a day, starting one week before your treatment. Choose an area you want to treat and start moisturising that area daily, after your morning shower, and at night.
Cryolipolysis commonly referred to as “CoolSculpting” by patients, uses cold temperature to break down fat cells. The fat cells are particularly susceptible to the effects of cold, unlike other types of cells. While the fat cells freeze, the skin and other structures are spared from injury.
This is one of the most popular nonsurgical fat reduction treatments, with over 450,000 procedures performed worldwide.
FDA-approved non-surgical solution for eliminating cellulite, impotence, fat deposits, alopecia and stretch marks
Carboxytherapy has now become a good anti-aging treatment for cellulite of all grades, for wrinkles reduction, stretch marks. Carboxytherapy is a FDA approved treatment.
Carboxytherapy works in two different ways: it first fragilizes fat cells with a pressure traumatism, then, in second, CO2 leads to flood vassels dilation in the area where the gas is injected. This reaction to carbon dioxide injection gives a better oxygenation of skin layers with increased lipolysis capabilities. The end result is fewer fat cells and skin tightening..
Carboxytherapy has been used for over 70 years in Europe where it was discovered (France, Royat). The procedure was widely used to treat ischemic vascular diseases because of the vasodilation properties of CO2. No major side effect has ever been reported during this period. Carboxytherapy aesthetic usage has been introduced by italian doctors in the 2000ies .
Aesthetic CO2 procedures are now widely used in north and south america as in Europe too. The most common co2 treatments are:
- Cellulite reduction
- Localized fat & weight reduction with or without liposuction
- Liposuction complementary solution to clear pending irregularities.
- Arterial diseases associated with diabetes
- Skin ulcers
- Some erection problems due to vascular disorders
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars & Skin laxity (arms, chest, …)
- Wrinkles redution
How many sessions are necessary?
The number of sessions differs and are related to the kind of performed treatment. Localized fat reduction typically requires from 8 to 10 sessions for an optimal result. Sessions should be renewed eash 1 or 2 weeks. Several yearly sessions are necessary to maintain results.
For cellulite and peau d’orange, from 6 to 10 sessions are also required for optimum results.They should be renewed each each one or two weeks. Results may be optimized with cellu-m6 or velasmooth massages.
Treatments for stretch marks and wrinkles will require from 4 to 6 sessions repeated each month.
What areas of the body can be treated with carboxytherapy?
Carboxytherapy can be used to treat the eyelids, face, neck, arms, stomach, buttocks, and legs.
What other benefits occur from carboxytherapy?
In addition to increasing oxygenated blood-flow to the region injected, carboxytherapy also increases collagen formation in the skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.
How does carboxytherapy work for stretchmarks?
Stretchmarks (striae distensae) occur when the skin is stretched to the point where the dermal collagen ruptures. Carboxytherapy causes the formation of new collagen and subsequently thickens the skin to improve the appearance of the stretchmarks by rebuilding the collagen matrix.
How does carboxytherapy work for alopecia?
The conditions that cause or are caused by circulation compromise, are the conditions that can be treated with this modality due to the revascularization and improvements in micro circulation caused by this therapy. Thus carboxytherapy has been known to also treat acute arthritis, erectile dysfunction, rheumatology and raynauds syndrome.
What does carboxytherapy feel like?
Carboxytherapy doesn’t hurt; it just feels a little weird. Because of differences in the techniques used to treat the eyelids, stretch-marks, scars, and fat deposits, the sensation is slightly different depending upon what is actually being treated. I use numbing cream for all of my patients to diminish any discomfort associated with the pin-prick of the needle itself. When treating the eyelids, I tell my patients that the lower eyelids will feel puffy, like they were up crying all night, but that will subside once the gas is absorbed over the next five to ten minutes.
The treatment of stretch-marks and scars is relatively painless because this skin doesn?t have the same ability to sense pain. Some pressure from the gas may be felt as the stretch-marks are distended, and they can feel a bit itchy, but again this subsides in about five minutes once the gas is absorbed by the body. Scars generally feel no pain because there are no nerves in scar tissue.
The treatment of cellulite and fatty deposits on the arms, abdomen, and legs has a unique sensation of its own. This is because a larger amount of the gas is injected directly into the offending fat deposits and allowed to expand. While the gas is expanding, you may feel some pressure in the area being treated that feels similar to when the arm is squeezed by a blood pressure cuff. The areas will feel warm and tingly for up to 24 hours after the treatment as the circulation to the area is improved.
How many treatments will I need?
Stretchmarks (striae distensae) occur when the skin is stretched to the pThis depends upon the severity of the problem being treated. Usually, six to twelve treatments spaced one week apart yields an excellent result.
