Popular Medical Spa Treatments

Medical spa treatments provide various benefits that were once available only at a doctor’s office. These are some of the most common aesthetic procedures you can receive at a medical spa.


Botox injections are among the most common spa treatments Norfolk VABotox inhibits muscle contractions by blocking nerve signals, thereby smoothing wrinkles resulting from repetitive facial movements. Whereas Botox freezes muscles to combat wrinkles, derma fillers fight wrinkles by plumping areas under thin skin due to fat loss.


Hyperpigmentation, acne, alopecia, stretch marks, scars and sun damage are many conditions treatable with microneedling. Pricking the skin with needles stimulates the body to produce collagen and other healing chemicals to plump the skin and smooth wrinkles. Microneedling can also improve uneven skin texture by filling in depressions, smoothing scars, and reducing pore size.

Tattoo Removal

An aesthetician directs a laser’s energy over a tattoo, causing its color pigments to dissolve. The body leads white blood cells to the tattoo site and continues to fade its pigments. Over time the fading continues until the tatoo is no longer visible.

Cool Sculpting

Stubborn body fat that resists exercise and diet may respond to cool sculpting. The first step involves pressing the portion of the body requiring treatment against panels that subject it to freezing temperatures before destroying it. Then, the body eliminates the dead fat cells through the liver. Coolsculpting is a non-invasive treatment that can require multiple sessions depending on the body part.

Non-Surgical Face Lift

Polydioxanone sutures used for cardiac surgery attach to needles that carry them under the skin. They support and lift sagging tissue while inducing an inflammatory response leading to collagen production. Thread lifts can apply to the face, legs, arms, stomach or thighs.

Medical spas offer advanced aesthetic treatments in a safe environment and achieve long-lasting results to keep you looking your best.
