It’s been a long, cold, lonely winter, and with summer right around the corner, it’s time to start investing in you. The best way to pamper yourself? A trip to Embody SKIN Care & Medical Spa definitely fits the bill. Whether it’s finding the right products to keep your skin healthy and glowing through the bright summer months, or a treatment that’s tailored to fit your needs (after your free consultation with a spa professional!), Embody’s got what you need. 

“A trip to Embody is an investment in mind and body, so when you look in the mirror, you feel good about yourself. The relaxation that comes from a treatment at Embody Spa—from investing time into yourself—is invaluable,” explains Heather Buckles, owner and advanced esthetician at Embody SKIN Care & Medical Spa.

So what can Embody do to help you get ready for the upcoming change of seasons? There’s a plethora of options available—from simple treatments like a facial to revive your skin to permanent cosmetics to make your days that much easier, the professionals at Embody are ready to help you jumpstart your summer skincare!

Get chemical peels, waxing or permanent makeup now.
If you want flawless summer skin, now’s the time for peels (Skinceuticals Advanced Corrective and Skinceuticals TCA Peel), laser treatments (Clear + Brilliant Treatment), and permanent makeup. “During the summer months, sun exposure could undo the work that’s done during these types of treatments.” More great summer-prep? Full-body waxing, including a Brazilian option. “We use the best wax,” Heather promises. “It’s called mermaid wax—a fan favorite because it’s comfortable, doesn’t hurt, and doesn’t cause breakouts or irritations after the fact.” Invest in your skin now so you have that gorgeous glow all summer long!

For the couture change from spring into summer …
Looking for that little push to get your body sundress-fab and swimsuit-ready? Consider some help on your weight loss journey from Embody’s offered weight loss injections. And once you’ve hit that goal weight, truSculpt iD—a non-surgical body-sculpting treatment—is there to help tighten up your skin and get you feeling the best in your body.

Don’t forget: hydrate and protect your skin all season.
Heather recommends hydrafacials through the summer months. “They’re great treatments because they address discoloration and brown spots, while treating excess oil or acne—but still gentle enough that they won’t cause any irritation.” As for your summer skincare must-have products, Heather recommends Skinceuticals Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment (a lightweight moisturizer great for all skin types), Skinceuticals Daily Brightening UV Defense SPF 30 (to protect against UV-induced pigmentation, and even and lighten tone), and Discoloration Defense (a daily dark spot corrector that targets skin discoloration for brighter, more even-looking skin). All products and treatments that are sure to keep your skin healthy and leave you feeling fresh-faced all season! | 732 Middleton Way, Loveland | 513.449.1550
