Beyond Wrinkles: Other Facial Skin Problems Med Spas Can Help You With

Many people have come to equate med spas with filler and Botox injections. Indeed, many people head to the local med spa for these treatments, and at many med spas, they are the most common treatments administered. However, med spas typically do far more than just treating wrinkles and fine lines. Here are some other skin problems you can have treated or managed at a medical spa.


Acne can be really difficult to treat. There are so many over-the-counter products out there, but they don't work well for many people. A med spa can offer more in-depth, personalized care for patients with acne. They can perform a laser treatment, which will help take care of active lesions while preventing additional breakouts, too. They can even inject active acne cysts with steroids, which should get rid of them in a hurry. Another option is to have a chemical peel, which will offer deep exfoliation to help prevent skin cells from getting trapped in your pores and causing blemishes.

Dry Skin

When your skin is dry, do you respond by just slathering on more moisturizer? Sometimes this works, but if it does not work, you should head to your local medical spa. Microdermabrasion is a treatment they offer that can abrade away your dry skin, revealing fresh new skin in its place. Some med spas also offer deep moisturizing facials, which can be helpful for dry skin. These treatments can be used all over the body, not just on the face.


Sunspots tend to develop with age. They start off looking like little, browned patches, and they can become darker with time. The best way to prevent them from darkening is to wear a good, high-SPF sunscreen to protect against additional UV damage. But to take care of existing sun spots, you may wish to visit a medical spa. They can perform a chemical peel, which can help lighten the spots. They may also perform a laser treatment on some of your darker, more obvious sunspots. After treatment, you may find you are less reliant on makeup to cover up your spots.

Medical spas do offer a lot of great filler and Botox treatments for wrinkles and fine lines. However, these are more than just places to get your wrinkles addressed. If you are suffering from dry skin, sun spots, or acne, head to a local medical spa for care. Call a local medical spa for additional info.
