    Revealing the Hottest Med Spa Treatments in 2024

    As aesthetic technologies and techniques improve, more patients than ever are opting for non-surgical and minimally invasive skin treatments to see significant improvement in their appearance, without the recovery and downtime of more extensive procedures.

    Here, our Joplin medspa team is sharing the five most popular treatments that promise to be all the rage at med spas this year.

    Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling

    Does your skin need a serious pep-talk? Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is a game-changer in the world of non-surgical treatments, combining the complexion-smoothing effects of microneedling with the tightening benefits of radiofrequency energy.

    How it works

    During an RF microneedling treatment, tiny needles create micro pathways in your skin—not to worry though, it’s actually quite gentle. Not only does the microneedling itself promote firmer, smoother skin, but these pathways also become the perfect route for RF energy to travel deep into your dermis. The process prompts your skin’s natural healing powers, ramping up collagen and elastin production.

    At our med spa, our RF microneedling device of choice is Morpheus8. Because it uses radiofrequency energy as well as micro-needles, Morpheus8 packs more of a punch than traditional microneedling; but unlike alternative harsh laser resurfacing skin treatments, doesn’t require much downtime.

    The result of Morpheus8 is fine lines, slightly saggy skin, acne scars, and rough skin texture begin to fade away, revealing smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin that looks even better over time.

    Why it’s hot in 2024: We love that this treatment can be applied to almost any area of the body to address wrinkles, discoloration, or scarring—including stretch marks! Medspa patients are getting savvy to how this treatment can be used to fight aging in the hands, smooth stretch marks on the hips and belly, and help reverse sun damage on the chest and neck.

    Hydrafacial MD®

    The Hydrafacial MD® is considered the “gateway” non-surgical treatment; it’s the go-to for first-timers! This luxurious facial is beloved for its gentle yet comprehensive approach to targeting a range of skin concerns, offering immediate & long-term results with zero downtime. Each Hydrafacial is also customized to target your specific skin concerns, including dry, dull skin, clogged pores, discoloration, fine lines, and texture irregularities.

    How it works

    During this facial, our aestheticians use the Hydrafacial wand to deeply cleanse and exfoliate the skin, extract impurities with gentle suction, and hydrate the skin with nourishing serums. After listening to your goals and examining your skin, we’ll recommend the ideal serums that address your skin’s needs. At our Joplin med spa, we also offer Hydrafacial for the Face + Neck, HydraFacial + Dermaplaning, HydraFacial for the Face + Chest or Upper Back, an Acne/Rosacea HydraFacial, a Detox HydraFacial, and a Red Carpet HydraFacial.

    Why it’s hot in 2024: Unlike some non-surgical treatments that are only for specific skin concerns or certain skin types, the Hydrafacial is beneficial for everyone! Whether you’re looking to bid farewell to acne, wave goodbye to wrinkles, or simply give your skin a radiant boost, this treatment has got you covered—without irritation or downtime. Regular Hydrafacials have become a must-have addition to skincare regimens for anyone looking to keep their skin at its best without resorting to more invasive procedures.

    Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

    PRP therapy is the 2024 treatment of choice for patients seeking natural solutions for healing and rejuvenation. Injected or applied topically to the skin, PRP can help stimulate and amplify the body’s healing capabilities to treat a variety of concerns, from hair loss to skin concerns, with minimal risk and downtime. PRP injections improve skin texture and tone, reduce the appearance of scars, and promote collagen production for the long-term health of treated areas.

    How it works

    We’ll take a few vials of your blood and place them in a centrifuge, where it is spun at high speeds to separate the platelets. This concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then injected into areas that need a little extra love, where it releases growth factors that promote natural healing and tissue regeneration. For skin texture issues or wrinkles, it can be applied topically after a microneedling session. Our clinicians customize the treatment plan based on your specific health goals and conditions—it’s like a healing potion, custom-made by you for you!

    Why it’s hot in 2024: Because it uses the body’s own properties, there is virtually no risk of allergic reactions or complications, making it a safe rejuvenation option for nearly everyone. As we become more conscious of the treatments we choose, the demand for safe, natural, and effective options like PRP therapy continues to grow and will be a staple treatment in 2024 and beyond!

    Semaglutide & Tirzepatide Weight Loss Injections

    The buzz around medical weight loss injections has reached an all-time high, marking it as the gold-standard solution for those seeking a helping hand in their weight loss journey. Far from being just another trend, semaglutide and tirzepatide injections have captured the attention of celebrities, influencers, and anyone struggling with extra weight with their science-backed approach to tackling weight issues.

    How it works

    Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are medications originally developed for diabetes treatment but are now approved for weight loss. These injections work by reducing appetite and calorie intake, and when combined with lifestyle changes, help achieve significant weight loss. This treatment has become especially popular among those looking for medically assisted weight management solutions.

    At our Joplin med spa, all patients on our medical weight loss plan with semaglutide or tirzepatide injections are overseen by Nurse Andrea to ensure your 12-week program is tailored to you for the safest and most effective regimen possible. We believe that our program is not just about shedding pounds; it’s about embracing a healthier lifestyle and reducing the risks associated with weight-related conditions, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

    Why it’s hot in 2024: Losing weight and keeping it off is seriously challenging. Semaglutide and Tirzepatide’s path to weight loss is both manageable and sustainable, offering real results without the extremes of dieting or surgery. It’s no surprise that the convenience of a weekly injection and the clinical evidence supporting the medication’s safety and efficacy have been transformative for men and women who complete our program.

    Forma Skin Tightening

    Forma skin tightening uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to lift and tighten the skin, and is the preferred non-surgical skin tightening treatment by providers and patients alike for its ability to achieve firmer, younger-looking skin.

    How it works

    Forma uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate deep into the skin’s layers, comfortably heating the tissues and stimulating collagen production. This boost in collagen layers tightens and firms the skin, smoothing out those pesky fine lines and wrinkles and giving the skin a supple, naturally plump appearance. And the best part? It feels just like a warm massage, making each session a relaxing escape from your busy day.

    Why it’s hot in 2024: Everybody wants to look effortlessly youthful without downtime—or needles! Forma skin tightening is ideal to prime the skin for confident aging, and with no recovery time, no one will know you’ve had a treatment! As many lean towards more holistic approaches to beauty, Forma’s gentle yet powerful technology makes it a favorite treatment for achieving that lifted, youthful look—all without a single needle or incision.
