Learn More About Medical Cosmetics
For decades, spas have specialized in soothing face and body treatments to help people relax and look their best. While they were popular, people began to demand more cutting-edge anti-aging treatments. A medical spa combines the best of both worlds, providing the best outpatient appearance enhancement procedures combined with traditional spa services.
At Medical Cosmetics, we have performed thousands of treatments, including injectables, fillers, lasers, and more. Here are a few of the most requested treatments we perform at our medical spa in Lancaster.
Botox Injections at a Medical Spa
One of the most popular and safest outpatient procedures in the world, Botox softens lines created by facial expressions. Used mostly on the forehead and around the eyes, the injectable makes a profound yet natural looking difference to your appearance. The Botulinum toxin type A is injected into the skin around fine lines and wrinkles, and it prevents the release of a neurotransmitter that allows muscles to move. The results are both immediate and temporary, lasting several months before the procedure must be performed again.
miraDry Hyperhidrosis Treatments
Many people suffer from overactive perspiration under their arms. miraDry hyperhidrosis treatment is the first FDA cleared technique to permanently end excessive sweating under your arms. Using microwave technology, it targets the eccrine glands which produces perspiration, and it is completely painless. It usually only requires one treatment, and there is no downtime so you can get back to your day as soon as you leave our office. As an added bonus, patients usually have less odor and hair growth as a result of miraDry as well!
Medical Spa Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments
Also known as PRP, this new treatment gives amazing results using your body’s own platelets. It is often compared to non-surgical facelifts because of the profound difference it can make in your appearance. Using a blood sample you provide, we then create a substance called Platelets Rich Plasma. We can then use it in several ways. It can be injected into the skin, and we can also apply it after dermarolling or a laser treatment for optimal penetration. PRP stimulates collagen production and gives your skin a natural, healthy glow. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves volume, and smooths uneven texture. This outpatient appearance enhancement procedure has little to no downtime, and results can last for up to two years.
