4 Popular Med Spa Treatments to Consider

4 Popular Med Spa Treatments to Consider

As medical science advances, we’re getting increasingly good at defying aging. That’s true for our longevity, certainly, but it also applies to the way we look through the years, thanks to the latest med spa treatments. 

Here at Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Abilene, Texas, Nikunj Patel, MD, FACC, and our team provide medical aesthetics treatments to give you convenient access to the best options available today. 

Let’s take a look at four of our most popular treatments:

Botox®

Through the years, your face develops dynamic wrinkles like forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Fortunately, Botox is an extremely effective way to smooth those wrinkles. 

In fact, Botox works so well that even during 2020, a year when most people saw a lot less of each other, 4.4 million Americans still chose to get this med spa treatment. 

Dermal fillers

While Botox works extremely well for dynamic wrinkles, it can’t treat the lines your face develops as a result of volume loss. It also can’t replenish volume where you lose it through the years.

Enter: dermal fillers. With cosmetic injectables like Juvéderm®, Dr. Patel introduces volume wherever you need it most. If you have thinning lips, sunken cheeks, deep nasolabial folds, or another volume loss-related sign of aging, fillers can reverse the problem. 

Threadlifts

You don’t need to undergo a facelift to reverse the effects of gravity. With a threadlift using polydioxanone (PDO) threads — the same materials used for absorbable surgical sutures — Dr. Patel can lift and anchor sagging skin.

Over time, your skin safely absorbs the thread Dr. Patel places. But it replaces the thread with a new network of collagen, helping your results to last for years. 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

If you want a way to rejuvenate your appearance without adding anything synthetic to your face, PRP delivers. With this option, Dr. Patel takes an extremely small sample of your blood. By placing it into a centrifuge, he’s able to separate out the platelets.

The platelets in your blood are rich in growth factors, which stimulate regeneration. When injected into targeted locations on your face or combined with a treatment like microneedling, PRP can penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin. There, it drives cellular turnover. As your face creates new, healthy skin cells, your appearance improves. 

We also offer treatments with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) here at our office. 

If any of these med spa treatments sound like a fit for you, don’t hesitate to call Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center or request your appointment online to get started today.
