Learn All About the Benefits of Microneedling

The Benefits of Microneedling for Beautiful Skin

Microneedling is an advanced treatment that offers remarkable improvement for wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. If you have tried other creams and treatments but you are still struggling with your skin, microneedling may be the answer you are looking for. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this procedure uses tiny needles to prick the skin and generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer skin. Though it may sound painful, it is a minimally invasive procedure. Today, Emerge Medical & Well Spa will explain all about microneedling to help you decide if this procedure is right for you.

How Does Microneedling Work?

The idea behind the procedure is to stimulate your skin with tiny, controlled pinpricks. This process causes your skin to respond by producing new collagen-rich tissue. The new tissue develops more evenly in tone and texture, resulting in firm, beautiful skin.

Does Microneedling Hurt?

Describing the procedure as painless would be an overstatement, but it certainly isn’t painful either. The sensation is similar to moving sandpaper across your skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment quite tolerable. For facial microneedling, the procedure lasts for about 15 to 20 minutes.

Which Areas are Treated with Microneedling?

Patients with facial concerns such as acne scars, fine lines, large pores, reduced skin elasticity, or uneven skin tone often seek microneedling treatment.

What to Expect After the Procedure?

As microneedling isn’t an invasive procedure, recovery time is minimal. Most people will simply notice slight skin irritation and redness for the first couple of days after treatment. You will need to apply sunscreen to your skin, as it will be more sensitive to the sun. You should see results from the treatment after several days. To maintain beautiful results, follow the instructions provided by the professionals at Emerge Medical & Well Spa.

How to Prepare for the Procedure?

Talk with your doctor before seeking microneedling treatment. You may need to stop taking certain medications in advance of the procedure. For instance, you may need to discontinue certain acne medications before your visit.

How Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy Helps Fight Aging

Older couple riding bicycles at the park

The Benefits of Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a process that helps to maintain optimal hormone levels in aging men and women. As we age, our declining hormone levels can have a significant impact on many of our body functions. Symptoms that we characterize as age-related issues such as low energy, weight gain and loss of libido are all associated with a decline in hormone levels. Today, the experts at Emerge Medical & Well Spa will discuss the many benefits of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Why Choose Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

The goal of hormone therapy is to maintain a safe hormone level and help alleviate the symptoms commonly associated with aging. BHRT balances hormones such as testosterone, progesterone and estrogen, maintaining the healthy levels that patients enjoyed when they were younger. Reduced levels of these hormones has a tremendous impact on our day-to-day wellness.

For many years, medical researchers have worked to safely balance these hormones, but not without difficulty. In the past, many patients suffered significant health issues after being treated with synthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy represents an advanced treatment that is safer and more effective than synthetic alternatives. BHRT utilizes hormones that are biologically identical to the molecular structure of the hormones your own body creates. Emerge Medical & Well Spa is proud to offer advanced Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy to our clients, delivering amazing benefits to health and beauty.

Symptoms of Low Testosterone in Men

Low levels of testosterone in a man can lead to much more than just low libido or erectile dysfunction. Symptoms associated with low testosterone include:

  • Loss of sex drive
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Increased body fat (particularly in the waist)
  • Decreased bone mass
  • Sudden mood changes
  • Decrease in mental performance
  • Irritability

Even worse, there are many studies that have shown health conditions associated with low testosterone, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Alcohol abuse
  • High Cholesterol

Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance in Women

There are a number of symptoms that could be a result of decreased hormone levels in women, many of which are common to women who have entered menopause, including:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Night sweats
  • Hot flashes
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Painful intercourse
  • Weight gain
  • Insomnia
  • Increased irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Increased risk of UTIs
  • Cold hands and feet

If you have any of the above symptoms or any other symptoms of menopause, you may have a hormonal imbalance that can be treated with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

How to Start Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

If you think that BHRT could be a solution for your symptoms, schedule a visit with Emerge Medical & Well Spa for a test of your current hormone levels. Our experts will provide you with a comprehensive consultation to determine if you are a candidate for bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Reach out to the team at Emerge Medical & Well Spa and call our office today at 918-392-8606.

Aftercare Instructions: Tattoo Removal

Applying GauzeAftercare Advice for Tattoo Removal Procedures

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we offer many exceptional services to our clients, one of which is laser treatment tattoo removal. Tattoos can be a beautiful and artistic way to express yourself and show the world who you are. However, from time to time mistakes are made, tattoos become outdated, and romances end. When this happens, don’t resign yourself to living with an unwanted tattoo, look to Emerge Medical & Well Spa for the perfect solution.

We are proud to offer PicoWay laser treatment, which uses a novel picosecond technology to quickly and safely deliver tiny blasts of light particles to the inked area. The energy in these lasers targets only the tattoo ink, not the sensitive skin around it, and requires far fewer applications than a typical laser removal service. Following the procedure, we give each client detailed instructions on how to care for the treatment area.

Directly After Laser Treatment

The first three days following your tattoo removal will be the most tender. The area should be kept clean and bandaged with gauze and medical tape. A thin layer of moisturizing antibiotic ointment will help prevent scarring and speed healing.

You shouldn’t wash the area during this three day healing process. Once healed, use a non-abrasive scent-free skin cleanser for skin care. Be sure that you avoid scrubbing the area as this could cause irritation.

Pain and Blisters Following Tattoo Removal

A little pain is normal after tattoo removal, and it can be treated with ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Don’t panic if you notice the lasered region of skin beginning to blister. Blisters are a common side effect of laser treatment, although the PicoWay laser system is more gentle than traditional lasers. Blisters will eventually break and drain, and the area will begin to feel better.

For three months after your tattoo removal, you should apply a generous dose of sunscreen before heading out into the sun. The laser treated portion of your skin will be sensitive to UV rays and more likely to be damaged by direct sunlight. During this time, continue to avoid scented moisturizers and creams to ensure optimal healing.

Healing For Good

By following these aftercare instructions, you can ensure that your tattoo removal area should be completely healed within 4-8 weeks after your treatment. Reach out to us if you notice problems with healing, including discoloration, bleeding or continued pain.

For a closer look at laser treatment and tattoo removal at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, visit our official PicoWay web page. You can also call our team here in Tulsa; our professional medical spa staff are always happy to meet new clients and answer any of your questions.

Common Reasons for Laser Treatment

Getting laser treatment

Why You Might Need Laser Treatment

There was once a time when lasers were the stuff of futuristic sci-fi movies. Today, lasers are part of everyday life at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, where we use the latest technological advances to offer health and beauty to our customers. Laser treatments are used for a variety of reasons, including the rejuvenation of skin and the removal of unwanted hair and blemishes. Read on to learn more about laser treatment and discover how this service can benefit your health and beauty.

Skin Resurfacing Laser Treatment

As we age, our bodies begin to change, our cells don’t regenerate as quickly, and our skin loses its natural beauty. Daily exposure to sun and wind damage affects the collagen in your skin, creating lines, wrinkles and skin spots.

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we use Sublative laser treatments to successfully reverse mild and moderate skin imperfections, such as wrinkles and textural anomalies. This service allows you to rejuvenate your skin in a way that your cells can no longer accomplish naturally, resulting in smooth, supple and flawless younger looking skin.

Vaginal Rejuvenation Services

It’s not just the skin on your face which requires a little help with aging. As time goes on, women tend to lose some of the tightness and tone of the vagina. This can make sexual intimacy feel different and can take a toll on your self-esteem. Vaginal tone tends to be particularly different for women who have had children. You may notice that even something as simple as holding back urine can be difficult during a cough, sneeze or laugh. Changes in hormones also cause the vaginal skin to thin and natural lubrication to decrease.

Believe it or not, there is a laser treatment which can help with these problems, and it’s called CORE INTIMA. Our CORE INTIMA laser is a non-invasive, surgery-free method of improving tone and sensation in the vagina. We’re proud to note that over 73% of our customers have reported a positive difference, especially during intimacy, following this treatment.

Acne Scar Revision Treatment

Whether as a teen or as an adult, acne gets the best of us all. Pimples are an unfortunate side effect of the oils and pores in our skin. When pores or sebaceous oil glands become blocked with debris and oil, bacteria causes acne to form. When acne gets picked, scratched or poked, it can cause scarring on the face. Fortunately, our medical spa offers a solution in the form of Syneron Elos technology. This bi-polar radio frequency combined with blue light laser treatment kills the bacteria that causes acne and reduces the appearance of scarring.

Safe, effective and virtually painless, most of our clients resume work or school the same day they are treated. It’s an effective and affordable way to manage acne.

Laser Treatment for Hair Removal

Nobody likes shaving underarms, eyebrows and legs. Our hair laser treatment uses Candela technology called GentleLASE which removes unwanted hair without gel, razors or wax. This process is a perfectly safe and affordable way to get smooth, hairless skin.

Tattoo Removal By Laser

Some tattoos are keepers, but from time to time even the biggest tattoo enthusiast gets some ink they wish they hadn’t. Removing tattoos was once impossible, but our advanced laser technology allows us to remove unwanted tattoos and help your skin look clean and new again.

If you’re interested in learning more about any of the treatment options at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, give us a call! Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are happy to help our clients understand our procedures and determine which are best suited to their needs.

Why You Should Get Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

Young woman suffering from allergies

Benefits of Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

Anyone who has experienced seasonal allergies knows exactly how debilitating they can be. Symptoms like headaches, skin rashes, sinus infections, and breathing problems can all be a result of allergic reactions. At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we offer full-service allergy testing and immunotherapy treatment so you can be free from your allergies. Learn more about the benefits of our Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy treatment and why you should schedule an appointment with Emerge Medical & Well Spa today.

Why We Experience Allergic Reactions

Our immune system produces substances known as antibodies. When you experience allergic reactions, your body produces antibodies in order to combat allergens that your body mistakenly thinks are harmful even though they aren’t. Your immune system reacts to what it sees as a potential threat, causing inflammation of your skin, sinuses, airways, and digestive system.

So many things can cause an allergic reaction in daily life that many people struggle to identify the exact cause of their reactions. However, Allergy Testing with Emerge Medical & Well Spa helps you uncover exactly what causes your reactions, so you can finally do treat them with immunotherapy.

Immunotherapy

In theory, avoiding your allergic triggers would prevent you from experiencing your symptoms. However, avoidance is often either difficult or impossible. For instance, if you have a reaction to pet dander, you certainly won’t want to part ways with your puppy. Or if you have a pollen allergy, you are still going to need to go outside during pollen season. So what can you do for treatment?

Emerge Medical & Well Spa has the solution in the form of immunotherapy treatment. Immunotherapy treatment works by slowly introducing those allergens in tiny amounts via injections or drops under your tongue. As the treatment progresses, the concentration increases until you reach a maintenance level where your immune system recognizes the element as harmless and no longer reacts with antibodies.

This is the only treatment that is designed to fix the root cause of your allergy problems, instead of simply treating the symptoms. In addition, the results are long-term — potentially even permanent.

Contact Emerge Medical & Well Spa Today

If you suffer from allergies and need a solution, contact Emerge Medical & Well Spa to set up an appointment for a consultation today. You can call us at 918-392-8606 to speak with one of our specialists, or you can submit an appointment application online. Don’t let allergies impact your quality of life for another day, let Emerge Medical & Well Spa help you achieve relief.

Emerge Medical & Well Spa: What is Microdermabrasion?

Woman getting microdermabrasion treatment

Microdermabrasion Explained by Emerge Medical & Well Spa

We all want perfect skin! However, age, stress, sun exposure, etc. can cause our skin to be dull. Even if you take great care of your skin, sometimes it’s necessary to give it a little extra help.

At Emerge Medical & Well Space, one way we suggest getting back on the path to the flawless complexion you want is to invest in microdermabrasion. This may not be a term that you are familiar with, so we want to clear up any questions there might be about this process that can help clear up your skin and leave it fresh and radiant. At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we always suggest that before you decide on this kind of skin treatment you make sure to discuss it with your dermatologist.

How it Works

Microdermabrasion is different from regular dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is far rougher on the skin. With dermabrasion, the dermatologist is sanding the top layer of your skin.

With microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are spread on your skin to remove that dull top layer of skin. Unlike dermabrasion, microdermabrasion doesn’t require a lengthy recovery period. However, your skin will be pink and dry so make sure to moisturize after your procedure. Also, it’s best practice to avoid makeup for at least 24 hours to prevent any skin irritation.

History

The act of abrasion as a means of skin beautification dates back all the way to ancient Egypt. Sandpaper was used to take off the upper layer of skin. A variety of other methods developed over the years until in 1985 in Italy the first microdermabrasion machine was invented. This system was far gentler and safer for both doctor and patient.

Today, it is one of the most popular skin care procedures on the market because of how much it helps brighten and renew your skin.

Intended Results

At Emerge Medical & Well Space we offer microdermabrasion because it is a gentler method of treating things like dull skin, light acne scars, or minor skin discoloration. It is not, however, sufficient for removing stretch marks, deep scars, etc. This procedure is meant merely to make skin brighter and softer.

Book Your Microdermabrasion Appointment at Emerge Medical and Well Spa Today

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa we have trained professionals who are prepared to help you get the skin that you want. We offer microdermabrasion as well as other skin treatments that are meant to rejuvenate your complexion and make you feel beautiful. If you have more questions about microdermabrasion or want to book an appointment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, make sure to contact us, and we’ll get you all set up!

Brief History of Foot Reflexology

Person getting foot massage

History of Foot Reflexology

Reflexology is an ancient practice; although, it has changed significantly over the centuries. Its predominant use is to alleviate pain from injury or disease. This is done by applying pressure to various pressure points that correlate to different organs.

The predecessor to modern Reflexology is called Zone Theory and was established by Dr. William Fitzgerald and Dr. Edwin Bowers. These two gentlemen discovered that applying pressure to these pressure points alleviated not only pain but also the underlying cause of the pain.

Dr. Fitzgerald divided the body up into zones. He believed that the pressure point for any given organ could reside within the same zone. His colleague, Dr. Bowers, went to some extreme lengths to get others to buy into their ideas on zone therapy. He would apply pressure to a pressure point and then stick a pin in the corresponding numbed area. This kind of shock and awe display proved to be very convincing, and people began to accept their theory.

Modern Reflexology

Another doctor by the name of Shelby Riley worked closely with Dr. Fitzgerald, and he continued to develop the zone theory. However, the individual who established the foot reflexology was a therapist who worked in Dr. Riley’s office named Eunice Ingham. She took an interest in Zone Theory, and in the 1930s she began to develop the concept of foot reflexology as we know it today.

It was she who determined that the reflexes in the feet were an exact mirror image of the different organs and glands in the body. She called the specific pressure points that correlated different organs “reflexes.” So, she renamed Zone Therapy and called it Reflexology.

Thanks to Eunice Ingham, reflexology focuses explicitly on the hands and feet which are most receptive to these applied pressures. Modern reflexologists use Ingham’s methods for treating patients.

Book Your Hand, Ear or Foot Reflexology Appointment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa!

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we believe in the power and efficacy of hand, ear or foot reflexology to help promote relaxation and improve circulation in the body. If you book an appointment with us, your therapist will use thumb pressure on specific reflex points to help achieve maximum results. The aim of an ear, hand, or foot reflexology session is to have you leave our medical well spa feeling rejuvenated. At our spa, we offer both 30 and 60-minute sessions with our ear, hand, and foot reflexology therapists. If you are in need of relaxation, make sure to contact us at Emerge Medical & Well Spa to book your appointment!
