If you enjoy having facials and skin treatments to help you look younger and more refreshed, you'd probably love going to a medical spa. A med spa usually offers treatments that a traditional spa doesn't provide. This might include things like radiofrequency treatments, microneedling, or even permanent makeup. You'll find treatments that help you sculpt your body or that reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Here are some treatments you'll want to consider when you go to a medical spa.

Thread Lifting

If you don't want a surgical facelift, but facials don't give the results you want, look into thread lifting. This is a treatment that lifts your neck and tightens the skin on your face. The cosmetic doctor weaves surgical threads under your skin to pull the skin tight. The threads dissolve gradually, so the treatment isn't permanent, but you can have more threads put in if you like the results you got.

Non-Surgical Fat Removal

There are a few types of non-surgical fat removal techniques you should know about. These target pockets of fat you might have under your chin or on your hips. Unlike liposuction that needs an incision and downtime, non-surgical fat removal can be done on a lunch hour, and you can resume your usual activities afterward.

There are primarily two ways to remove fat without surgery. One is to use cold temperatures that freeze fat cells and kills them without harming skin, muscle, or other cells. The other method uses heat, such as from radiofrequency or ultrasound treatments. Heat also kills fat cells without harming nearby tissues. This allows the doctor to eliminate fat deposits that keep you from having a shapely, sculpted figure.

Non-Surgical Facelift

A medical spa offers dermal fillers that can be used to give you a liquid facelift. The fillers plump up deep lines to make them less noticeable. The fillers may be combined with skin-tightening procedures that give your skin additional lift.

Radiofrequency with microneedling is one way to tighten and lift skin on your face. This treatment stimulates collagen, so as the collagen is replaced in your face, your skin tightens and lifts.

Hand Rejuvenation

Just like treatments that rejuvenate your facial skin, you can get hand rejuvenation treatments at a medical spa. Your hands often look old due to thinning skin and wrinkles from sun damage. The doctor might inject dermal fillers on the back of your hands and then spread them around with a massage so the skin looks plumper and younger. They might also give you a chemical peel or radiofrequency treatment to combat wrinkles and tighten loose skin.
