The Benefits of Dermaplaning

You might have heard about dermaplaning, but maybe you don’t know exactly what it is and what it can do for your skin. Well, you’re in luck! In today’s blog, the professionals at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa are going to explain what this beauty trend is all about and discuss the benefits of this exfoliating facial technique. 

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive facial peel that is used to gently exfoliate the skin. During this process, dead skin cells and peach fuzz are gently removed by gliding a scalpel across the surface of your skin. While this might sound scary, rest assured that this process doesn’t hurt one bit! Some people even claim it is quite soothing. When combined with a spa facial, this treatment can help you achieve maximum results. 

Now that you understand what dermaplaning is, let’s talk about what it can do for you and your skin. 

Removes Peach Fuzz

Dermaplaning is a great way to get rid of unwanted peach fuzz or excess facial hair. And the best part is that your hair won’t grow back thicker or faster like it might when you use a razor on your face. 

Anti-Aging

Dermaplaning can help your skin look fresh and young by shaving off the top layer of dead skin. This will effectively reduce the look of wrinkles and lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars, leaving you with glowing, revitalized, and younger looking skin!

Reduces Pores and Acne

Dermaplaning’s exfoliating properties effectively reduce the size of pores on your face, helping to deter build up of oil and dirt. This will also help improve the effectiveness of your acne treatments!

Smoother Makeup Application

Last but not least, dermaplaning will leave your skin feeling clean and soft, allowing your makeup to glide onto your skin unbelievably smooth! Without the excess peach fuzz and dead skin cells, your makeup won’t get blotchy and you can say goodbye to uneven skin. 

Dermaplaning Is Not for Everyone

While dermaplaning can give you great results, it’s important to note that it may not be for everyone. If you have sensitive skin, excessively oily skin, or are prone to breakouts, it’s best to consult with our professionals before having this treatment done. 

Try Dermaplaning at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

If you think you’re a good candidate for dermaplaning and you’re ready to achieve smooth, bright skin, try dermaplaning at Emerge Medical and Well Spa in Tulsa! For maximum effectiveness, add this treatment to one of our spa facials like the Skin Medica facial or the Emerge Essential Cleansing facial.

How to Make Your Eyelash Extensions Last Longer

Eyelash extensions are an awesome way to get the effortless beauty that everyone is searching for. While they can be pricey, eyelash extensions can save you lots of money on mascara and lots of time getting ready in the morning! Eyelash extensions typically last two or three weeks before you need a fill, but there are ways to help them last even longer! Read on to learn some tips for making your extensions last longer from the professionals at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa. 

Don’t Touch!

As hard as it is to resist, it is important to avoid touching your eyelash extensions. Even if they look out of place, it may be because your real eyelashes are shedding as they do naturally. Let your lashes come out naturally and move your extensions with a spoolie wand if necessary. 

Detangle Regularly

To prevent your eyelashes from getting tangled, you should use your spoolie wand every morning to roll through your lashes, detangle them, and keep them defined. Do this by closing your eye and brushing your lashes from the top down the length.  

Avoid Oil-Based Products

Oil-based makeup or moisturizers can weaken the glue on your lashes and cause them to fall off prematurely. Try swapping out your eye cream for a lightweight serum, and be sure you don’t get product too close to your lashes!

Be Careful With Eyeliner

This tip may be tough if you love eyeliner, but you should try to avoid it if you can! Removing eyeliner often requires a little bit of rubbing which can cause your extensions to fall out. If you must wear eyeliner, try removing it with a cotton swab and micellar water. You can also try to apply your liner slightly above the lash line!

Clean Them Regularly

After the first few days, start using a gentle foam cleanser on your extensions. This will help your lashes stick longer and clean off any leftover makeup residue! Avoid using cotton balls or cotton pads, as the fibers can get stuck in the glue. Try using a gentle cleansing cloth or even a makeup brush to clean the lash line and avoid pulling off your lashes. 

Professional Eyelash Extensions at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

If you’d like to get the effortlessly beautiful look of eyelash extensions, trust our professionally certified Xtreme and Minky Eyelash specialists at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa! We will help determine which lashes work best for you for perfect results. So start by booking an appointment online or calling us at 918-392-8606 to learn more!

Sclerotherapy for Varicose and Spider Vein Treatment

Varicose and spider veins cause physical discomfort and cosmetic embarrassment for many men and women. These problems may be caused by age, hormones, circulation, and even pregnancy. So, what can you do to reduce the appearance of these veins? There are various options, including exercise, changes in diet, and losing weight. While these methods may work, another proven method that can help alleviate the problem is Sclerotherapy, a quick and easy injection treatment offered at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa!

How Does Sclerotherapy Work?

Sclerotherapy at Emerge Medical & Well Spa involves 30-minute sessions where a salt solution called sclerosant is injected into the affected areas. The solution helps reduce the size and appearance of unwanted veins by rerouting blood flow to healthier veins.

How Soon Can I Expect Results?

You can expect to see results from small varicose or spider vein treatments in three to six weeks, and larger veins may take three to four months. Treated veins generally do not reappear, but it is possible for new veins to show after treatment. 

Depending on the severity of the condition, patients may need to undergo more than one session. Following a Sclerotherapy treatment, patients may experience mild discomfort and are advised to avoid strenuous activity for a week. 

Who Can Undergo Sclerotherapy?

If your legs have spider or varicose veins that cause you physical discomfort or embarrassment, you may be a good candidate for Sclerotherapy. Eligibility for this treatment is decided on an individual basis. Factors that may affect your eligibility include pregnancy, if you take birth control, if you have had a blood clot in the past, and your general medical history. 

Sclerotherapy Spider and Varicose Vein Treatment

If you’re tired of the way your veins look, or you want physical relief from the discomfort caused by these veins, Sclerotherapy may be a good option for you! At Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa, our professional medical spa staff are highly trained to give you the best experience possible.

How Foot Reflexology Can Help Reduce Stress

Hands performing foot reflexology

Reflexology, not to be confused with massage, involves applying pressure to various points on the feet, hands, and ears. According to ancient Chinese medicine, these different points are connected to different organs and body systems, and applying pressure to these areas is said to offer various health benefits as well as a balanced and free flowing qi. 

Some of the health benefits of foot reflexology include improvement in energy levels, circulation, liver function, circulation, and even migraines. But, in today’s blog, the reflexologists at Emerge Medical & Well Spa are here to talk about how reflexology can help significantly reduce stress and improve mood. 

Reduces Stress

Reflexology works to reduce stress levels by improving lymphatic drainage and venous circulation, stimulating nerve pathways, and relaxing the muscles. The accompanying relaxation will also allow your body to deal with the stresses associated with daily life and illness. 

Releases Good Hormones

Along with the therapeutic release of stress and tension throughout the body’s systems, reflexology increases nerve activity and releases toxins from the tissues. This encourages the release of endorphins, the feel-good hormones proven to relieve stress. 

Supports Healing

Reflexology also works to improve the body’s assimilation of nutrients, eliminates waste, and stimulates the immune system. In turn, this will help balance and maintain the body, promote self-healing and lead to good health. 

Foot Reflexology at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

If you are looking for an affordable and peaceful way to release stress, reflexology can help you! There are virtually no restrictions when it comes to a good candidate, and the only thing you have to remove is your shoes! Here at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa, we offer both 30 and 60-minute sessions of hand, ear, and foot reflexology! If you want to learn more, visit us online or call us at 918-392-8606 for more information about foot reflexology and our many other services!

The Importance of B12 Shots for Vegans

Vegan woman holding healthy food basket - B12 Shots at Emerge

When you stop consuming meat and animal products, you might miss out on essential vitamins. If you are a vegan or vegetarian, or you are considering making the switch, you need to ensure that you are getting the nutrients you need. 

In today’s blog, the professionals at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa explain the details about why vegetarians and vegans should be aware of vitamin B12 deficiency, and how you can avoid this deficiency with B12 injections and supplements.  

Vitamin B12 and Vegan Diets

While B12 is recommended in amounts much smaller than most other vitamins, you can’t sufficiently obtain the vitamin from a plant-based vegan diet. In fact, vitamin B12 is only found naturally in animal-based foods. 

Vitamin B12 deficiency is very common in vegans and vegetarians, and others who don’t absorb it very well. Symptoms of B12 deficiency include anemia and nervous system damage. The symptoms can take up to five years to develop, so it is important to be aware of the risks and avoid B12 deficiency if you are following a vegan diet. 

B12 Supplements

It is recommended to take 2.4 micrograms of vitamin B12 a day for adequate absorption. Since you cannot obtain the right amount, if any at all, from a plant-based diet, one good option is taking vitamin B12 supplements. You can find B12 supplements in the form of a pill, but the vitamin is better absorbed through other methods. These methods include lozenges or tablets that absorb under your tongue, oral sprays, and foods fortified with B12, such as non-dairy milk, cereal, meat substitutes, energy bars, and nutritional yeast. 

B12 Shots

If you’re looking for a way to get enough vitamin B12 that is more efficient than supplements or food, you can get optimum B12 retention with Vitamin B12 Injections. This method offers direct and immediate vitamin B12 absorption into your bloodstream, so you can rest assured that you are receiving the vitamins you need on a vegan diet.

Vitamin B12 Injections at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

Vitamin B12 shots not only give you what you need to supplement a vegan diet, but they have many added benefits as well, including boosted metabolism, energy, and mood. B12 is also extremely effective in aiding the function of your cardiovascular system!

Vitamin B12 shots aren’t just for vegans or vegetarians! They can help anyone who has a vitamin B12 deficiency or anyone who needs a mood and energy boost. If you are interested in learning more about our Vitamin B12 Injections or any of our other wellness services, call Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa at 918-392-8606 or request an appointment online now!

Benefits of Sermorelin Therapy for Men

Man Working Out and Smiling - Sermorelin Therapy

As men age, the secretion of the growth hormone GHRH slows down dramatically, causing a number of undesirable symptoms. Sermorelin is a genetically engineered bio-identical hormone that stimulates the secretion of GHRH. Unlike other hormone therapies, Sermorelin encourages the body to naturally produce these hormones rather than directly adding them to the body, making it a gradual anti-aging hormone therapy with lasting effects and fewer complications. In today’s blog, the professionals at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa explain the benefits that Sermorelin therapy can have specifically for men!

Improved Health

The decline of human growth hormone levels comes with a variety of different symptoms, including reduced energy, libido, and muscle mass, unnatural weight gain, and more. With Sermorelin therapy, you can improve these symptoms and gain a number of health benefits. Some benefits may emerge sooner than others, and results vary from patient to patient. Here are some of the health benefits you may experience:

  • Increased lean body mass
  • Fat reduction
  • Improved immune function
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Improved skin elasticity
  • Improved bone density

Improved Exercise Performance

One of the most significant benefits of Sermorelin therapy for men is the improvement of exercise performance. Sermorelin treatments will help you recover from exercise quicker, put on muscle faster, and give you more energy for more intense workouts. 

Improved Muscle Strength

Another added benefit of Sermorelin is that it improves your metabolism and in turn helps you lose weight. Along with exercise, you may also see a dramatic change in your body composition that results in improved muscle mass and strength. 

Improved Mood and Libido

Declining levels of hormones in men can result in decreased energy and reduced libido. Sermorelin therapy provides a boost of energy that can help improve your mood, including symptoms like anxiety and depression. It’s not uncommon to feel an overall feeling of well-being as a result of Sermorelin therapy!

Sermorelin Therapy for Men at Emerge!

If you are experiencing symptoms of decreased hormone levels or you are looking for an increase in metabolism, libido, exercise performance, energy, and more, look no further than Sermorelin Therapy from the professionals at Emerge Medical & Well Spa!

How to Prepare for Allergy Testing

Specialist performing allergy testing on arm

1 in 4 Americans have allergies related to a wide range of factors, from food to the environment. If you think you might be suffering from certain allergies, it’s a good idea to get allergy testing even if you don’t show symptoms. Allergy testing at Emerge Medical & Well Spa takes as little as 15 minutes, it’s virtually painless, and it can get you the answers you need to start treating your allergies. In today’s blog, we talk about how to prepare for your allergy testing appointment and why it’s important.

Make a List

As you prepare for your upcoming allergy testing, there are a few things you need to know to ensure a quick and easy appointment. You will be asked a wide range of questions about your potential allergies, so it’s a good idea to write everything down before your appointment to avoid any confusion or forgetfulness. Here are some of the things you should write down or bring a record of:

  • Your medical history
  • Signs and symptoms
  • Previously diagnosed allergies
  • Any medications you take
  • How you normally treat your allergies
  • Any questions you have for the medical professionals

Understand Allergy Symptoms

Depending on what you’re allergic to, symptoms of allergies can present themselves in a number of ways. Allergies have the ability to affect your skin, airways, sinuses, nasal passages, and even your digestive system. Here are some of the causes and symptoms of different allergies:

 

  • Hay Fever can cause symptoms like sneezing, itchy eyes, nose, or roof of the mouth, runny nose, and swollen, watery eyes.
  • Food Allergies can cause tingling in the mouth or on the tongue, swollen lips, face, or throat, hives, and anaphylaxis.
  • Insect Sting Allergies can cause swelling, itching, hives, tightness in the chest, cough, shortness of breath, and anaphylaxis.
  • Drug Allergies can cause hives, itchy skin, rash, swelling of the face, wheezing, and anaphylaxis.

 

If you experience symptoms of anaphylaxis or a severe allergic reaction with serious symptoms, seek emergency help right away.

Consult Your Doctor About Medications

As you prepare, it’s also important to remember that some medications might interfere with allergy testing results by suppressing them or making them worse. Before you stop taking any of these medications, especially prescription medications, consult your doctor because you may be asked to stop taking them for up to 10 days. These medications include:

  • Prescription or over-the-counter antihistamines
  • Antidepressants
  • Heartburn medications
  • Asthma medications

What To Do Next

Now that you’re prepared with all the information you need for successful allergy testing at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, you can be confident that you’ll receive the results you need to take control of your allergies. Some allergies can be easily resolved by avoiding allergens or taking medication, but for some allergies it’s just not that easy! That’s why we also offer cost-effective Immunotherapy treatments with lasting results that have been trusted by physicians for over 100 years.
