The emergence of med spas has shaken up the beauty industry. These incredibly popular beauty treatment centers occupy a space in between standard spas and plastic surgery, a space that is proving to be increasingly popular with patients of every age. Med spas offer medical grade, yet non-invasive, treatments that give patients an opportunity to enhance their appearance with no surgery. And the ever-growing popularity of the med spa industry, which is currently expanding at an average rate of 7% yearly, shows that patients are loving their results.
Med spas offer many different kinds of treatments for both the face and body. From classic treatments like peels and facials to innovative new treatments like Emsculpt and Kybella, there’s a med spa treatment for every beauty need.
The Med Spa Industry Flourishes in Non-Surgical Face Treatments
Most med spas offer traditional spa treatments like facials, but often offer advanced, medical-grade versions of the treatments, like CryoStem Cell Facials (which incorporate stem cell technology) and MicroBotox facials (which incorporate both Botox and microneedling).
Speaking of Botox, this wrinkle-reducing treatment is still one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today and is a top treatment at most med spas. Fillers like Juvederm, which can be used for both wrinkles and lip augmentation, are also very popular.
The Med Spa Industry Flourishes in Non-Surgical Body Treatments
In addition to facial treatments, patients are flocking to med spas for non-surgical body treatments that can remove fat, reshape the body, and even create muscle growth.
CoolSculpting is a top med spa treatment that works through the application of targeted cooling energy that freezes and eliminates fat. This can allow patients to get rid of stubborn fat that just won’t go away, even with diet and exercise, with no invasive surgery.
Emsculpt is another med spa treatment that can remove fat, though it also builds muscle. This non-surgical treatment works through the application of electromagnetic energy, which causes the targeted muscles to have intense (yet not painful) contractions. This defines the muscles and breaks down fat, allowing patients to get a more toned look without having to hit the gym.
These are just a few of the many med spa treatments that are popular in the med spa industry. The steadily increasing popularity of these treatments can be attributed to two things: the convenience and effectiveness of the treatments. With treatments like Botox, fillers, and CoolSculpting, patients can get incredible aesthetic results without having to go under the knife. And with most med spa treatments, there’s no recovery time needed— patients can simply go back to their daily life after treatment.
The med spa industry provides safe & effective treatments to enhance your appearance. However, it is important that all patients do their research before heading to get a med spa treatment. Different cities and states have different regulations about who can administer med spa treatments and it’s always best to make sure you get treated by a trained, licensed professional, like those on our team here at the Z Center For Cosmetic Health.
