6 Most Popular Medical Spa Treatments

By Alyssa Martinez @ItsMariaAlyssa

Thanks to advances in technology, it is no longer necessary to go under the knife in order to revitalize your look. There is now a huge number of minimally invasive aesthetic treatments that can be effectively performed in clinics without the need for significant downtime or surgery. From laser hair removal and Botox to fillers and chemical peels, here is a list of some of the most popular medical spa treatments that can help you to refresh your look:

1. Fillers

Last year, over 2.6 million people had dermal filler treatment. Fillers are effective and safe. They are used to add volume to cheeks and lips, improve acne blemishes, contour the jawline, and fill in creases around the mouth. Performed by injection, dermal fillers can be used in most areas of the face for purposes such as restoring youthful looks and smoothing wrinkles.

2. Botox

Research has shown that over 7.4 million Botox procedures are performed each year. Botox is a quick treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. However, if you are considering this treatment, it is important to remember that you need to choose a reputable surgeon for this type of procedure. This is because Botox is performed via injections. Botox is a minimally invasive treatment, and it is an affordable option to improve wrinkles and moderate to severe lines on the face. Results can last anywhere between 3 to 4 months.

3. Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are another popular medical spa treatment. In fact, in 2018 over 1.38 million people had a chemical peel treatment. A chemical peel is a non-invasive treatment that improves the texture, tone, appearance, and clarity of your skin. It helps to reduce age spots, melasma, hyperpigmentation and softens wrinkles and fine lines. Not only that, but it can also help to improve scarring and acne.

4. CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is a technique that removes fat through freezing and destroying fat cells. The equipment applies a huge amount of suction to the target area and then uses a cooling plate to carefully freeze the lipids in fat cells.

This medical spa treatment takes between 35 minutes to 1 hour to complete, depending on how many areas the patient wants to treat. Once the treatment is complete, the fat cells will begin to die off and will be eliminated from the body over the next few weeks.

5. Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal remains one of the most prevalent medical spa skin treatments. In fact, research suggests that over 1 million people have laser hair removal each year. We can expect this to increase in the future as more and more people look for more permanent solutions to reduce hair growth.

This treatment is mostly performed on the underarms, face, back, legs, arms, chest, and bikini area. The light-based treatment targets and permanently destroys hair follicles without damaging any surrounding tissue.

6. SkinPen Microneedling

SkinPen is a micro-needling device that is used to create controlled micro-injuries. This treatment aims to stimulate the body's natural wound healing process, resulting in increased elastin and collagen in the skin. Research has shown that this treatment is extremely effective at significantly improving acne scars, improving overall skin tone, and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles on the skin.

The aesthetics industry has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years. Several new minimally invasive treatments have been introduced into this industry. From fillers and chemical peels to laser hair removal and Microneedling, there is certainly a lot to be thankful for.
