Anti-Aging Q & A

What is anti-aging?

Anti-aging treatments available at Favia MediSpa use the latest advances in laser and radiofrequency technology to improve the appearance or aging skin on your face and body. The treatments also improve body contours and enhance hair restoration.

Favia MediSpa offers InMode Evolve technology for body sculpting, Harmony XL Pro laser technology to diminish aging skin, and Alastin® Skincare products to improve your skin's overall health and appearance. Cosmetic specialists also use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate hair regrowth naturally.

What are the benefits of anti-aging treatments?

Some of the many benefits you can expect when choosing anti-aging treatments at Favia MediSpa include:

  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Fewer age spots
  • Tighter, lifted skin
  • Fewer signs of aging
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Laser hair removal
  • Healthier skin
  • Fewer fat pockets
  • Sculpted muscles
  • Less cellulite 
  • Fuller, thicker hair

Favia MediSpa specialists use noninvasive anti-aging procedures so you don’t have to worry about surgery, pain, incisions, or downtime.

Which anti-aging treatments are best for me?

To determine which anti-aging treatments match your individual needs, Favia MediSpa providers discuss your medical history, symptoms you may have, and your desired outcome. They examine skin in areas you’re concerned about and tailor anti-aging treatments just for you.

What happens during anti-aging treatments?

During anti-aging treatments at Favia MediSpa, you rest comfortably on a chair or exam table. Your provider numbs the treatment area if needed to ensure you avoid discomfort. You can wear special glasses during laser procedures to protect your eyes.

Laser treatments

Your specialist uses a handheld device to apply laser energy to skin cells in targeted areas to stimulate new cell generation, tighten skin, remove unwanted facial or body hair, or eliminate undesirable tattoos.

Body sculpting

If you opt for body sculpting, your specialist places hands-free devices on your skin to emit radiofrequency energy into fat cells and simultaneously produce electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to sculpt your muscles. 


During PRP treatment, your provider injects platelet-rich plasma sourced from your own blood into areas of your scalp to produce fuller, thicker hair without surgery. 

Skincare products

Your cosmetic specialist could recommend Alastin Skincare products to help you maintain long-lasting, cosmetically pleasing results. 

What should I expect after my treatment?

After noninvasive anti-aging treatments at Favia MediSpa, there’s no downtime. However, your skin may be a little bit red, swollen, or tender for a short time.  More aggressive treatments may require downtime.  Treatment options and any associated downtime will be discussed prior to treatments so clients know what to expect. 

Your provider often recommends a series of anti-aging treatments, along with maintenance sessions every now and then, to help you maintain younger-looking results over the long term.
