IPL (60 min, $300 - $750)
IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin.

Ultherapy (150 min, from $3500)
Ultherapy, otherwise known as the non-surgical face lift, is a non-surgical device using focused ultrasound to produce hundreds of tiny thermal injuries in the supportive structural tissues under the skin. These thermal injuries cause the body’s natural healing response to lay down new collagen and elastin proteins causing the skin to firm, tighten, and lift.
Anyone looking for non-surgical skin tightening should consider ultherpay.

A medical spa (med spa) is a hybrid between an aesthetic medical center/skincare clinic and a day spa. According to the American Med Spa Association, there are four elements that characterize a medical spa:
Offer non-invasive (non-surgical) aesthetic medical services and treatments
Skincare professionals operate under the general supervision of a licensed physician
Services are performed by trained, experienced and qualified practitioners
Procedures are performed with onsite supervision by a licensed healthcare professional.
2. What is the difference between a medical spa and a day spa?
Medical aesthetic treatments go far beyond therapeutic and relaxing facials and mud baths. Treatments at many medical spas are more results driven with a focus on corrective and preventative skin care treatments.
Aesthetic medicine includes all procedures in the field of aesthetics except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Non surgical aesthetic procedures include some of the following:
