The Five Absolute Best Medical Spa Procedures to Look Younger

At Novuskin, we see clients every day who are looking for skin treatments to address concerns about skin aging. It seems the whole world is on a quest to turn back the hands of time – at least when it comes to our skin. But what are the best anti-aging procedures to look younger? While time machines haven’t been invented (yet!), plenty of technology has been developed that can help reverse many signs of aging.

If you truly want long-lasting effects results from your spa treatments, you need to visit a medspa to take advantage of the latest non-invasive skincare technology. This is because of the extreme effectiveness of skincare technology, some of which can replace surgical cosmetic procedures. 

There are three primary layers of the skin: 

  • The epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) creates our water barrier and contains some dead skin cells.
  • The dermis (just below the epidermis) is comprised of connective tissue, hair follicles, and sweat glands.
  • The hypodermis (below the dermis) is mostly fat and connective tissue.

Medical spa treatments use FDA-approved technology to make changes below the epidermis – in the layers of skin that produce the proteins and cells that keep our skin looking youthful. Medspa technology is scientifically proven to help smooth fine lines, fill in wrinkles, lift and plump sagging skin, give life to dull skin, and even contour the cheeks and chin.

Here are the five absolute best medspa treatments that can help you look younger – and stay that way longer.

Microcurrent Nonsurgical Facelift

You read that correctly. Microcurrent technology can provide similar results as a surgical facelift – without surgery, anesthesia, and the subsequent recovery time.

Here’s how it works.

The face contains 42 muscles, all responsible for the beautiful expressions we make. They allow us to chew and blink, and for some of us, wiggle our ears. But these muscles are susceptible to aging, and over time, they give in to the effects of gravity: they sag.

A Pain-Free Workout for Your Face

A microcurrent facelift is a cosmetic procedure that stimulates your facial muscles to contract, very similar to a full-facial workout, but without the need for spandex and a yoga mat. Most people feel little to nothing at all during the treatment. Although some report feeling a ‘zingy’ feeling, it doesn’t cause any pain. 

Microcurrent uses low-dose electricity to tighten facial muscles while encouraging cell growth. As if that wasn’t enough, it stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, two vital proteins necessary for strengthening the connective tissue that keeps our skin firm and tight.

What Happens During a Microcurrent Facial?

Your aesthetician will begin with a deep cleanse and exfoliation to remove impurities in the pores and rid the skin of the dead cells on the epidermis, allowing the microcurrent to work effectively. Next, your technician will apply a light layer of connective gel, and two wands will be gently moved over the skin, providing the impulses.

The benefits of this facial:

  • Smoothed fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightened, contoured skin
  • Lifted jowls
  • Improved circulation
  • Increased collagen and elastin
  • Improved look of acne and reduced oil production
  • Improved elasticity of the skin
  • Increased penetration of skincare products

Youth Revitalize Facial

What could be better than bringing back your youth? It seems too good to be true. While no facial can actually transport us to the good old days, the Youth Revitalize Facial can help to repair some of the damage the years have done.

Over time, our skin loses its ability to produce collagen, the ‘magical’ protein that makes our hair shiny, our nails strong, and our skin youthful.

Collagen production happens deep in the dermis. To make noticeable changes in this layer of skin, technology must be used. The Youth Revitalize Facial uses radio frequency, galvanic current, and a cold hammer to create long-lasting changes in the dermis. Used alongside lactic and hyaluronic acid, (two chemical exfoliants) these technologies provide circulation and oxygen rejuvenation.

Here are the benefits of this treatment:

  • Improved hydration in the skin
  • Exfoliated skin
  • Detoxified skin
  • Tightened, lifted skin
  • Contoured facial features
  • Increased collagen and elastin production  
  • Increased penetration of skincare products 

What Happens During a Youth Revitalize Facial?

There are four advanced procedures used during this facial:

  1. Microcurrent – Low-dose electrical impulses tighten facial muscles and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen. Your muscles will be firmed for fewer wrinkles and a contoured appearance.
  2. Chemical Peel – Lactic and hyaluronic acid chemically exfoliate while imparting hydration deep into the dermis.
  3. Galvanic current – The BioLong device creates both positive and negative ions to force toxins and free radicals out of the skin and products, and hydrating factors deeper into the skin.
  4. Cold hammer – This device cools the skin to provide immediate tightening and closes pores to trap in moisture.

This is one treatment that brings back the younger, youthful you!

Fractional Radio Frequency

Radio Frequency doesn’t sound like a skin treatment, but it’s an FDA-approved technology that’s minimally invasive and effective for a host of benefits.

Benefits of Radio Frequency include:

  • Tightened skin
  • Smoothed fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increased collagen and elastin production
  • Fight the effects of sun damage

Here’s how it works.

Radio frequency waves heat the deep layers of your skin. Your aesthetician should adjust the temperature according to your needs, but typically, the heat is between 122 and 167°F. While this seems quite hot, it won’t burn you, and this treatment should cause little to no pain.

When the skin is heated to over 115°F for three or more minutes, something interesting happens. According to studies, the skin releases proteins. This results in increased collagen production.

Is Radio Frequency Enough to Give me Results?

Radio frequency facials offer good results for lifting and toning the skin. However, RF is often used in conjunction with other therapies to provide superior results.

  • Blended with IPL (Intense Pulsed Light therapy), results will include decreased rosacea symptoms and acne and oil production, and improved look of pigmentation and skin elasticity.
  • Used alongside microneedling, benefits include an improvement in the look of acne scarring, and increased elastin and hyaluronic acid production.
  • Combined with LED Light Therapy, the skin will look fuller and more radiant, and the look of blemishes will decrease.

Venus Glow Resurfacing Treatment

There’s a clear reason why this treatment made the list of the best procedures to help you look younger. Actually, there are seven. And together, they can give you a complete skin renewal.

  1. Your skin will be resurfaced for a healthy glow
  2. You will experience an increase in naturally occurring hydration
  3. Your skin will be nourished by serums applied during your treatment
  4. Problematic skin will be treated
  5. Acne will be cleared and acne scars will be smoother
  6. Fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced
  7. Your skin will experience cellular renewal

Venus Viva Glow combines the most advanced technology for deep recovering and resurfacing of the skin; hydradermabrasion with IS Clinical Fire & Ice. These are two separate treatments that synergistically provide a host of benefits that are as good for your appearance as they are for your skin health.

What Happens During a Venus Glow Resurfacing Treatment?

First, you’ll receive a hydradermabrasion treatment; a nourishing treatment that involves two powerful actions; exfoliation and infusion. The skin is saturated by an extremely thin jet stream while simultaneously being suctioned. These two actions exfoliate the skin while cleaning out pores and removing bacteria and excess oil. Meanwhile, nourishing serums are infused deep into the dermis layer.

Next, the IS Clinical Fire & Ice treatment uses two powerful mask applications. The Fire mask is clinically formulated to resurface the skin. Antioxidants, botanical acids, and niacin resurface your skin, removing dead cells without residual peeling, so there is no downtime. The Ice mask soothes, nourishes, and hydrates, for complete skin rejuvenation. 

This luxurious treatment is easily one of the most beneficial treatments for skin resurfacing available today.

Microdermabrasion + Hydration Infusion

The luxurious, anti-aging facial is a 3-in-1 approach to detoxify, nourish, and heal the skin. Microdermabrasion, a 24K gold mask and LED light therapy, work together for ultimate skin resurfacing.

What Happens During a Microdermabrasion + Hydration Infusion?

There are three steps to this treatment.

  1. A wet microdermabrasion extracts the skin’s impurities, and simultaneously delivers essential nutrients to the deep layers of the skin. Microdermabrasion uses a jet stream finer than a strand of hair to penetrate into pores. Simultaneously, a vacuum opens pores, removes impurities, and prepares the skin for the hydration infusion.
  2. A luxurious anti-aging treatment, the 24K Gold Mask is applied to offer the skin remarkable benefits. The precious metals in the mask promote younger-looking skin, reduces age spots, and combats acne and infections.
  3. Finally, Celluma Pro LED uses light energy to repair and replenish compromised cells. This regenerative process boosts collagen production for immediately smoother, fuller, younger-looking skin.

The benefits of this resurfacing and nourishing treatment are improved skin tone, texture, and elasticity, enhanced collagen production, and diminished fine lines & wrinkles.
