5 Med Spa Treatments That Aren’t Injectables

Looking beyond injections for beauty enhancements? You’ve got options! While injectables certainly have their place in aesthetic medicine, many seek alternative treatments that are non-invasive, but equally transformative. Our Hagerstown aesthetician offers several treatments that improve the health and appearance of your skin with no injections needed! 

So whether you are new to med spa treatments or if needles just aren’t your thing, here are our top 5 med spa treatments we recommend for a refreshed, youthful appearance.

Hydrojelly Facial Treatment

Facials: A therapeutic skin refresh

A personalized Hagerstown facial is an ideal treatment whether you’re a medspa regular or just starting your journey to healthier skin. Our professional facials offer a deep cleanse, removing impurities that at-home washing and exfoliation can’t fully reach. We also nourish the skin with hydrating products to leave your skin looking and feeling rejuvenated. 

Before your treatment, we discuss your goals and concerns and examine your skin to determine which professional techniques and products will best benefit your skin. Facials help improve several skin concerns, such as dull, dry skin, clogged pores, acne, and other skin conditions. And because we incorporate massage with many of our services, facials are one of the most therapeutic, stress-relieving options, with the added benefit of immediate (and long-term if you get regular facials) results without any discomfort. 

Dermaplaning tool

Dermaplaning: See smoother, brighter skin

Dermaplaning treatments immediately revitalize your skin by removing dead cells and peach fuzz (vellus hair). This exfoliation technique uses a thin, medical-grade scalpel blade to gently and methodically glide across your skin (don’t worry, the scalpel should not pierce your skin or cause any pain when performed by a professional!). Many patients describe the treatment as a mild scratching sensation as the blade sweeps across the skin, but do not report any pain. 

Aside from being silky smooth post-treatment, your skin will be visibly brighter with improved skin texture and tone. Your skin may be flaky, or have a tight, dry feeling after treatment; we’ll apply a moisturizer in the office and give you some tips and tricks to keep your skin hydrated as your skin adjusts. There is no downtime after dermaplaning, and this treatment also helps with product absorption and creates an ideal base for makeup!

DiamondGlow wins best exfoliating facial

DiamondGlow skin resurfacing: For comprehensive skin wellness

DiamondGlow® is a skin-resurfacing treatment that uses condition-specific SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums to improve the health and appearance of the skin. Using a hand-held device, we pass the DiamondGlow wand over the treatment area to deeply exfoliate the skin’s surface, gently extract clogged pores with comfortable suction, and infuse the skin with active ingredients.  

A DiamondGlow® facial addresses several skin concerns, from dryness and dullness to fine lines and surface imperfections. This treatment is especially appealing for those who desire noticeable improvement in their complexion and mild skin concerns with no downtime and immediate results. 

“My Diamond glow facial was the best experience. Shelby was nothing short of professional, kind, knowledgeable and helpful! I can’t wait to return! Do yourself a favor and go!”

Before and after microneedling treatments

Microneedling: Heal the skin from the inside out

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a go-to treatment to improve both surface and deeper skin imperfections. It creates tiny punctures in the skin’s surface to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, boosting collagen and elastin production—these are the proteins that keep your skin supple and firm. Although this treatment does use needles, they are very fine and do not penetrate anywhere near as deep as injectable treatments like Botox or dermal fillers. Microneedling feels like a mild pricking sensation, and we apply a topical numbing cream to ensure you are comfortable during treatment. 

There is some downtime after microneedling; the skin typically appears red and may be slightly swollen for about 1-3 days, but this short recovery time is well worth the benefits for most patients. As microneedling increases cell turnover, nearly all skin imperfections can be improved with a series of treatments, including fine lines, scars, pigmentation irregularities, large pore size, and overall texture.

Chemical peels: Reveal healthier, younger-looking skin

Chemical peels use specialized solutions to dissolve dead layers of skin and encourage new collagen and elastin growth to reveal the softer, smoother, more radiant skin underneath. By removing the outermost layers of damaged skin and increasing collagen production, peels help improve skin concerns like fine lines, discoloration, tone and texture issues, acne scars, and the appearance of large pores.

Our peels are customized to suit your specific skin concerns and vary in intensity to ensure you receive just the right depth of treatment for your needs. Depending on the type of peel you have, there may be a few days of downtime to allow redness to resolve and for dead skin to flake off. But, if you’re looking for a transformative yet non-intimidating treatment, a customized chemical peel may be your best bet.
