Going to a medspa lets men and women get a treatment they want in a facility that is supervised by a medical doctor. Medical spas generally offer various body treatments but the vast majority of what they offer help improve their patients’ appearance. There are a few treatments that are the most popular choices when people go to a medspa.
Botox is always a top treatment for medical spas. It treats crow’s feet as well as wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes. It works by relaxing the muscles that cause facial expressions, which stops the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. It takes about two to four days to start seeing results and can last up to six months.
Chemical peels are the next most popular treatment a medical spa in Houston and other cities perform. Like Botox, they reduce wrinkles but they can also reduce the effects of blemishes, sun damage, uneven skin pigmentation, and acne scars. To do this, a doctor applies a chemical solution to cause a controlled wound. It takes several days to heal and when it does the patient has new and vibrant skin.
Laser hair removal is another common treatment people want from a med spa. It uses a laser to stop hair growth without doing any damage to the skin around it. Several treatments are needed since the laser can only affect hair that is growing and at any given time there are dormant hair follicles that will not be affected by the laser.
Although these are the top procedures, a medical spa offers many more to help increase men and women’s appearances by giving them soft, smooth, and vibrant skin. Laser skin resurfacing, photo facials, and microdermabrasion are also available at affordable prices from a medspa. To learn if any of these procedures are right with you, make an appointment for a consultation at a medspa near you to go over the treatment procedure, risks, and cost.
