Hey, beautiful! When’s the last time you popped by a medispa for a full consultation or a luxurious treatment? If you can’t remember (or you’ve never been), we want you to know you’re missing out! But just what is it you’re missing?
First, if you tend to think of medispas places where people only get injectable fillers and Botox….well, that’s just not true. Injectables are absolutely a treatment option. But this is a really limiting view of what’s available; modern medispas have so much more to offer.
So, why not find your perfect treatment on this list? Can’t wait to see you!
ACNE CONTROL REGIMEN
Suddenly struggling with acne? Whether you’re a teen struggling for the first time, or an adult who is a life-long sufferer, a medispa can help you identify the source and treat the problem. This includes managing care with prescription products like Accutane as well as simple anti-acne facials and blemish extraction.
We all want to stay youthful and beautiful for life. That’s a heck of a lot easier with anti-aging treatments! Whether preventative from a young age (even in your teens!) or reactive when you’re already noticing fine lines and wrinkles, it is possible to retain your beauty and glow for far longer than ever before. Ask your medispa physician!
Struggling with dry, cracked skin? Can’t seem to get enough moisture? Seaweed body wraps offer intense re-hydration. Services that contain clay, minerals, or charcoal detoxify and cleanse instead, helping to clear congested pores and make skin look glowy, youthful, and healthy again. Beauty isn’t only about your face!
When the first few layers of your skin are extremely damaged, discolored, or unevenly textured, chemical peels are the perfect option. Lighter formulas contain gentler acids that strip away only the surface, providing effective exfoliation. More intense prescription peels provide much more intense results, but they are strong, which is exactly why they aren’t available at a regular spa!
CHRONIC SKIN MANAGEMENT
Do you have eczema, psoriasis, or some other chronic skin condition? You might be surprised to learn that a medispa can help you manage this, too. From getting a diagnosis to finding the right prescription products, that first consultation opens up a whole world to better chronic skin management. You DON’T have to suffer alone.
This is admittedly a bit of a specialty, and not all medical spas will offer it…but some locations do offer cosmetic tattooing services. This may include quick and simple options like microblading or more intense permanent makeup. There are even tattooing techniques to help reduce the appearance of discolored or scarred skin!
DARK SPOT REMOVAL
Tattooing isn’t the only option for removing dark spots (also referred to as melasma). Special localized peels and brightening treatments can help reduce redness, erase purple tones, or even restore a healthier, more even overall glow. This can often be used on freckles, too, although we think freckles can be gorgeous, too! It’s really about what YOU think.
Struggling with your skin, but aren’t really sure just what the heck is up? Even if you don’t have a diagnosis yet, the main provider can help you get to the root of the problem and find a fix. In some cases, everything will happen in-house; in other cases, you may be referred out. Either way, you’ll be on the right path.
Serum and essence facials add moisture and replace lost nutrients. Clay, mineral mud, and vitamin-enriched formulas detoxify, strip away impurities, and clear pores. Lymphatic massage facials encourage better circulation and plump tissues.
And microcurrent facials, the latest in skincare tech, pass a very gentle barely-there current through skin, tightening muscles and potentially re-firming the face. There’s a facial out there for literally any skin woe you can possibly imagine!
Whether it’s a leg or a lip, most people struggle with undesired hair growth at least once or twice in their lifetime. Kick it to the curb permanently with laser therapy, or just get rid of it for a few months with electrolysis. Waxing, threading, and even just manual sculpting may be an option, too, depending on where you book.
LIGHT & LASER THERAPY
Light and laser therapy isn’t just for hair growth. In fact, newer wands can actually help encourage collagen growth and even lighten dark spots, too. There are even studies that show laser therapy might help to break up scar tissue and encourage better circulation. Best of all, they’re gentle enough that most people don’t suffer anything but a little bit of redness afterward.
Depending on where you book, your medispa just might offer massages, too. And yes, that includes facial and scalp massage as well as actual massage therapy for tight, aching muscles. We know for a fact that sore muscles, a natural consequence of pushing too much (or too little) can really drag you down and cause significant fatigue. You’d be surprised how much that can affect your skin!
Over time, skin has a tendency to collect dead cells, debris, toxins, old cosmetics, and even pollutants (yuck!). This is especially true if you spend a lot of time in LA’s smoggy core or if you’re regularly exposed to the elements (beach bunnies, we’re looking at you).
Regular cleaning and even facials aren’t necessarily enough to clear this away, which is where microdermabrasion comes in. A wand gently blasts tissue with tiny microscopic crystals to reveal younger, healthier skin underneath.
Before you book in with a plastic surgeon for that scar, see what your medispa physician can do. Between laser therapy and topical cosmeceuticals, there’s a lot of non-invasive ways to reduce their appearance. This is especially true if you’ve only had the scar for up to three months.
Your provider will address the root cause (e.g., injury or acne) and then find the right formula or approach to minimizing how it looks. Feeling like a little TLC now? We don’t blame you. Call your medispa and book a day to be pampered now – you won’t regret it!
