Offering services such as Botox, facial fillers, and skin tightening, medical spas provide more than just relaxation, but rejuvenation as well. Many of the procedures that help maintain a youthful appearance are performed at medical spas, so you can avoid a trip to the surgeon for as long as possible.

Medical spa treatments such as hand and foot massage, along with manicures and pedicures are great to rejuvenate, but if you're looking for a more dramatic improvement in wrinkles and fine lines, some of the other skin care treatments might be up your alley.
Typical treatments include:
- Chemical Peels - These treatments remove the top layer of dead skin cells, improving the appearance of sun spots and fine lines. There are at-home chemical peels, but the chemicals can be dangerous if not applied by a professional.
- Microdermabrasion - A combination of gentle abrasion and suction will allow the dead skin layer to lift and reveal younger, smoother skin below. This new layer is free from both effects of the sun and age. Many people also use this treatment to successfully remove and diminish crows feet and acne scars.
- Laser Hair Removal - Forget about shaving and waxing - laser hair removal is the way to go. New technology allows most skin types to be treated and with less pain than before. Several treatments are needed to get to the final result and while hair loss is permanent, many do still have some sparse hair growth.
