What are the Most Popular MedSpa Services?
When it comes to cosmetic treatments, the services offered by MedSpas can seem overwhelming. Some patients know that they want to get work done, but they’re not sure what procedure is right for them. Having a good understanding of what these treatments entail helps these patients make the right choice for themselves.
Here is a list of some of the most popular MedSpa Services available today.
For years, BOTOX has been the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment in the United States by a long shot. BOTOX cosmetic injections, also referred to as Dysport or Xeomin, are made from a toxin known as botulinum. BOTOX injections were approved by the FDA over 20 years ago, and they have been found to have an incredibly low complication rate of only 0.24. Thus, patients that undergo this treatment have a 99.76 percent chance of having no complications.
The main reason that BOTOX is so popular, however, is that it is incredibly effective. The full results from the procedure take about two weeks to fully settle in, but patients typically notice a significant difference in their complexion just a few days after receiving the treatment. It is especially effective at addressing issues such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Lazy Eye
- Cervical dystonia (spasms in the neck)
- Hyperhidrosis (profuse sweating)
- The effects of BOTOX injections have been found to last for around three to four months.
- Receiving these treatments on a regular basis can also work as a preventative treatment for warding off wrinkles.
Injectable dermal fillers are a popular skin treatment that works by bringing water to the injection site and stimulating collagen production. Collagen, much like elastin, is a protein that provides the skin with a healthy texture and shape. By increasing the amount of collagen in the skin, its volume and texture are also boosted. This process ultimately leads to a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.
Aside from being minimally invasive, fast, safe, and tested, injectable dermal fillers are incredibly effective at treating a wide array of common facial issues. They can:
- Fight volume loss, the process behind wrinkles
- Restore volume to areas such as the cheeks or temples
- Decrease the appearance of vertical lip lines
- Improve lip volume
- Reduce fine lines and furrows in the chin
- Improve all of the contours of the face
Microneedling has exploded in popularity in recent years. It creates micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating new collagen growth and creating a more youthful skin appearance. While this treatment is often employed as an anti-aging protocol, it is also a powerful tool for patients suffering from scars and other issues, such as:
- Acne and acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Lack of vibrancy in the complexion
- Discoloration and uneven texture
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores and blackheads
What is the takeaway?
There are various MedSpa services available today that can address a wide array of issues. Patients that are looking to give their appearance a boost would do well to speak with an experienced cosmetic practitioner before going forward with any treatments. Cosmetic treatments are improving every day, and patients can reap the benefits from them if they so choose.
