The medical spa industry has continued to grow in popularity in recent years. More people are turning toward non-invasive treatments and procedures to rejuvenate their skin and bodies. 

Whatever your goals are, there are a variety of medical spa treatments you can choose from. But, how do you know which is the right procedure for you?

This guide will go over the five most popular medical spa treatments, what a medical spa is, and where you can find a medical spa near you.

What Do Medical Spas Do?

Med spas combine the relaxing environment of a day spa with the expertise and procedures you’d typically find in a medical office. Med spas are also overseen by a medical doctor, like a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. They don’t necessarily need to perform each procedure themselves but they need to be affiliated with the practice. 

The office itself also varies depending on where you go. Some can have the same aesthetic as a soothing day spa while others are set up more clinically. Regardless of the med spa you go to, you’re sure to find experienced professionals who strive to give you the best results. 

What Are the Most Popular Medical Spa Treatments?

The types of treatments available will vary from place to place. You can generally find treatments for:

  • Aging skin
  • Hair Removal
  • Acne maintenance or scar removal
  • Facials
  • Body contouring

Below are the top five most popular med spa treatments in 2021. If any of these sound like something you may need, don’t hesitate to contact a Lakeland Med Spa to learn more. 

1. Facials/Hydrafacials/Chemical Peels

A facial is a quintessential day spa treatment and you can get one at a med spa. At a med spa office, more attention will be paid to your skin concerns and it will take a clinical approach to help you achieve your desired results. It will commonly utilize a form of microdermabrasion to help exfoliate your skin. 

Hydrafacial treatments, also known as “wet-microdermabrasion”, use water suction technology to clean debris and dirt out of your face’s pores. Depending on your skin type and what your concerns are, a special booster will be used to increase your skin’s natural health. 

Chemical peels improve the appearance of the skin on your hands, neck, and/or face. A chemical peel solution is applied to the area of skin being targeted, causing it to exfoliate and then peel off after a couple days. 

The newly revealed skin is then less wrinkled and smooth. You can opt for a deep peeling solution that will target deeper layers of the skin or a milder solution depending on your skin type and skin concerns.

2. Botox Injections/Filler Injections

Botox injections and dermal filler treatments smooth out deep lines and wrinkles that develop on your face over time. It can also:

  • Reduce the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Lift the corners of the mouth and eyebrows
  • Soften forehead lines

With Botox injections, you’re left with a refreshed and relaxed appearance. It can also treat migraines and excessive sweating. 

Filler injections also smooth out wrinkles as Botox does, but it also adds volume to your lips and skin. 

The end result is a youthful and healthy appearance. Depending on what your needs are, your med spa provider will create a treatment plan based on your volume goals. 

3. Laser Hair Removal

Don’t you get tired of shaving the same areas day after day? 

You might want to consider laser hair removal. Advanced laser technology is used to target hair follicles, preventing future hair growth and ensuring you don’t have to shave there again. 

Laser hair removal can be used in a variety of areas, including your upper lip, underarms, bikini area, and back. Both men and women seek treatment for laser hair removal. 

Along those same lines, laser tattoo removal is another popular procedure done at med spas.

Whatever your reason is for wanting a tattoo removed, it can be done efficiently and pain-free without causing any damage to your skin. Full tattoos can be removed in one to two sessions with no downtime. 

4. Body Sculpting/Fat Reduction/Muscle Sculpting

Body sculpting is a non-surgical option for fat removal. You can achieve your ideal body in as little as 15 minutes. Non-surgical body sculpting is a great option for those who want to target stubborn pockets of fat. 

This technique is FDA-approved and it can eliminate up to 24% of fat cells in a single session. It’s 100% effective and your results are permanent. There are also similar treatments for muscle sculpting that allow you to increase muscle mass and thickness of targeted muscle groups.

However, keep in mind that if you start to binge eat high fat and sugary foods after you receive body sculpting, the fat cells that were killed off will be replaced by new fat cells. Following a healthy diet and exercise routine is essential to maintaining your results. 

In addition to getting body sculpting, muscle sculpting, and other body shaping procedures, you can also opt in for 3D body scanning at a med spa. 

With a 3D body scan, you’ll be able to see how much fat vs. lean body mass you have in your body. This in depth body composition data helps you track how you’re progressing toward your fitness and body goals. 

5. Microneedling/Skin Tightening 

For those wanting to generate new skin tissue and collagen to achieve firmer and smoother skin, you should explore microneedling. It’s a skin tightening and anti-aging procedure used to treat loose skin, sagging skin, wrinkles, large pores, and scars. 

If you’ve never had microneedling before, the SkinPen is a great entry-level treatment. It creates micro-injuries to help stimulate your body’s wound-healing process. This results in increased elastin and collagen. 

For a more advanced treatment, you can explore Secret RF. In addition to tightening the skin, it can reduce the appearance of acne scars, pore size, and stretch marks. The procedure is only 30 minutes long with little to no downtime.

As your skin heals from microneedling wounds, your skin will be able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Med spas offer countless treatments that help you improve the quality of your skin, body, and mind. Whatever your goals are, you can find a treatment or two to perfect for you.
