Massage therapy refers to an alternative medical practice that focuses on maintaining the health of your muscles, tendons, and ligaments by manipulating and rubbing the skin. There are many different forms of massage therapy, including Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, and trigger-point massage. While your skin rejuvenation specialist can help determine which type of massage is right for your needs, it is important to educate yourself on the many benefits of massage therapy:
Increases Blood Circulation
The specific rubbing and kneading techniques utilized during massage therapy have been shown to improve blood circulation throughout your body. Boosting your blood circulation helps bring oxygen and essential nutrients to soft tissue injuries such as sprained ligaments and pulled muscles, ultimately promoting faster healing and reducing excessive scar tissue formation. By increasing your blood circulation, massage therapy can also be used to reduce swelling and pain.
Reduces Muscle Tension
Massage therapy also works to relax your muscles and alleviate tension. This not only increases your range of motion and flexibility, but can also reduce the occurrence of muscle spasms.
Promotes Deeper Breathing
Another benefit of massage therapy is that it helps promote deep breathing techniques. This enables your body to reach a state of mental awareness, which aids in overall physical and mental relaxation.
In addition to increasing blood circulation, reducing tension, and promoting deeper breathing, massage therapy has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety in order to create feelings of well-being.

The condition of your skin is negatively affected by sun exposure, certain lifestyle factors, and the natural aging process. While aesthetic cosmetic procedures such as face lifts and neck lifts can help combat the signs of aging, many individuals seek out a non-surgical treatment method. Fortunately, a number of medical spas offer a variety of non-invasive facial rejuvenation procedures to fit your specific needs.
Consider Your Skin Type and Problem Areas
Some skin rejuvenation treatments are more effective on certain skin types than others. Take the time to consider your skin type in order to determine which rejuvenation treatment is best for your needs. This includes your skin tone, texture, and degree of oiliness or dryness. You will also want to consider your intended goals, such as whether or not you are interested in eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the look of age spots, or creating a more even skin tone.
Research Your Treatment Options
Once you’ve determined your goals, it’s time to research your treatment options. A quality medical spa will typically offer a wide variety of procedures including express/deep cleansing facials, acne-control facials, anti-aging facials, hyperpigmentation facials, preventative four-layer facials, gentlemen’s facials, eye treatments, contour masques, microdermabrasion, and glycolic chemical peels.
Visit Your Skin Rejuvenation Clinic
The best way to determine which facial rejuvenation treatment is right for you is to schedule an initial consultation with your skin rejuvenation specialist. This will give you the opportunity to ask questions regarding your candidacy and available treatment options as well as what you can expect during the recovery period.
Whether you’re interested in non-invasive facial treatments, laser treatment, or cosmetic injectables, Beyond Beautiful Aesthetics is here to help. For more information on our services, give our New York City MediSpa a call at (212) 922-1622.

Laser skin rejuvenation treatments utilize concentrated pulsating beams of laser light to gradually remove old, damaged layers of skin. Laser treatments can be used to reduce the look of acne or surgical scars, age spots, discolored areas of skin, and fine lines and wrinkles. Certain laser treatments are also designed to eliminate hair, tighten the skin, and rejuvenate the backs of the hands. While your skin care specialist will provide you with in-depth after-care guidelines based on your specific procedure, there are certain things you can do following any laser procedure to expedite the recovery process:
Avoid the Sun
Laser treatments work by removing skin cells from your epidermis, or the outermost layer of skin, meaning that your skin will be more susceptible to sun damage during the first few days following your procedure. If you must go outside or into direct sunlight, you will want to apply a generous amount of sunscreen; however, patients whose laser treatment does not allow for the application of topical products will want to wear a large hat to protect themselves from the sun’s harmful rays.
Clean the Areas
It is important to keep the treatment areas clean and dry in order to avoid the risk of post-operative complications. Avoid harsh soaps and facial products, and stick to a saline or diluted vinegar solution to clean your skin approximately two to five times per day.
Keep Your Skin Moisturized
Using a hypoallergenic moisturizer is a great way to keep your skin lubricated during the healing process. Consider asking your skin care specialist if he or she can recommend a specific moisturizer to help protect and soften your newly forming layers of skin.
