During consultations, we often experience clients who are just starting that reference dozens of different technologies that have no relation or compatibility with one another. They ask about one device because they heard about it from a friend, another system they saw at a tradeshow, and different technology they viewed at a local competitor's office. This type of due-diligence will lead you down a path of confusion and uncertainty. Selecting the right repertoire of treatments and technologies is much more straightforward than that.
There is a consistent formula most new Med Spa's follow when just starting their businesses. It's composed of many of the highest-volume aesthetic procedure offerings in global aesthetics over the past decade. There will naturally be variability in what you decide to provide and what your competitor is offering; however, establishing some of the most fundamental treatments in aesthetics as a core to your business helps create a firm foundation for your immediate success.
Let's take a look at 5 of the essential treatments and technologies for your new MedSpa startup:
This is an obvious choice and the first start for many when launching their new Med Spa. Offering fillers and injectables are a great initial revenue source with minimal investment. This type of treatment doesn't require surgery, it's easy to perform, and patients typically see results. It's Not Just for Wrinkles
Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that relaxes muscles for up to several months. Botox is well-known for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, face, and neck. However, doctors also use Botox to treat a variety of medical conditions.
Migraines are severe headaches accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and noise. Chronic migraines last four or more hours and occur at least every other day. Botox injections into muscles in the head and neck every 12 weeks can prevent migraines from occurring frequently and lessen their effects.
Overactive bladder contracts unexpectedly and frequently. This can cause loss of bladder control (urinary incontinence), frequent urination, and the urgent and sudden need to urinate. Urologists can inject Botox into the bladder using a cystoscope, a unique instrument inserted through the urethra. Botox injections can help the bladder contract more regularly and normalize urination.
Hyperhidrosis is another name for excessive underarm sweating. When nerves in the underarm trigger the sweat glands to produce sweat, even in the absence of standard stimuli like fear and embarrassment. Some dermatologists and neurologists practice Botox injections into the muscles responsible for pumping sweat to the surface of the skin. This lessens the amount of sweat produced in your underarms.
Crooked Eyes (Strabismus), unbalanced muscles around the eye contract pull one eye in an abnormal direction. This produces crossed or misaligned eyes. Strabismus can lead to an inability to focus, blurred vision, double vision, lack of depth perception, and eye soreness.
Eyelid muscle spasms—or blepharospasm—cause uncontrollable and frequent blinking, eye twitches, watery eyes, pain or irritation of the eye and eyelids, and closing of the eyelids.
Cervical dystonia (also called spasmodic torticollis) is a nerve disorder that causes muscles in the neck and shoulder to pull involuntarily. This leads to uncontrollable head tilting and turning muscle tremors and pain. Botox injections can relax the neck and shoulder muscles and relieve the symptoms of cervical dystonia.
Upper Limb Spasticity
Upper limb spasticity is a condition in which the arm muscles involuntarily contract. People with upper limb spasticity may experience regularly clenched fists, stiff elbows, wrists, and fingers, inability to control arm movements, and pain. Different nervous system conditions can cause upper limb spasticity, including multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, stroke, and injury to the spinal cord or brain. Botox injections into affected arm muscles can reduce the effects of upper limb spasticity.
At FaceMed, we specialize in creating precise products for your Spa, so you don't have to look around for all your products. When it comes to Botox injections, choose from out ultra fine syringes.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that is already found in your skin. It helps keep the skin plump and hydrated. HA fillers are typically soft and gel-like. The results are temporary, lasting 6 to 12 months or longer before the body gradually and naturally absorbs the particles. Most HA fillers are infused with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort during and after treatment.
The global hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers market size was valued at USD 3.4 billion in 2018 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period. Increasing demand for youthful and flawless skin via non-invasive and outpatient aesthetic dermatology techniques is expected to drive the market. Furthermore, a rise in medical tourism for aesthetic procedures is anticipated to aid the market.
FaceMed can provide your Spa with the appropriate microcannulas of various sizes so that you can perform your procedures without being hindered.
Consistently one of the most popular, in-demand procedures in aesthetics for the last decade is hair removal treatments. This is where technology plays a significant factor in the efficacy of your laser hair removal services. Understanding what skin type your client is, what color their hair is, etc. are critical factors in deciding what technology is right for you. There are several FDA approved technologies that all have varying levels of treatment effectiveness.
Skin Analysis Consultation Tool
This is one of the most underestimated investments you can make. The consultation is key to your upsell success. Having an advanced imaging tool that determines underlying skin conditions and helps better connect your patients' problems with your customizable solutions is simply a win-win in an aesthetic setting. You can monitor your patient's treatment progression, all while maximizing your revenue.
Understanding the Fitzpatrick skin-typing scale related to the wavelengths available to target hair removal is very important. For example, a 1064nm wavelength is typically used to target darker skin types, whereas a 755nm Alexandrite is mostly used for skin types 1-4. There are machines out there that offer dual-wavelength capabilities 1064nm/755nm to target the range. Still, these are typical solid-state lasers, and quality ones are expensive to purchase and even more expensive to maintain throughout its life.
Our LAMBDA Fx laser is convenient and safe for all skin types with a pain-free mode. At less than 25% of most lasers' cost, it's an affordable option to start up your luxury Spa.
There are single wavelengths out there that can effectively target the range of skin types using different pulse durations, specifically, 808nm or 810nm diode technology. These technologies are typically lowering initial investment cost and lower recurring maintenance costs. Through industry innovation, they can be a part of a multi-modality platform that offers other treatment capabilities.
PRP procedures are increasingly becoming one of the highest volume treatments in aesthetics due to its effectiveness and versatility. Being that, it's one of the first considerations for a new Med Spa to offer in their launch. Like fillers and injectables, the initial investment is relatively low for a centrifuge and complementary treatment kits. PRP can also be an excellent complementary procedure to many other aesthetic treatments, such as micro-needling.
PRP procedures are a great procedure to add given the low barrier to entry however another alternative is PEP Factor for skin and scalp rejuvenation. This propriety blend of oligopeptides and nutrients is a safe and effective alternative to PRP and aids in both visibly brighter skin and healthier scalp and visibly thicker hair. In addition, there is no need for expensive PRP kits, or handling and processing blood products. This saves the patient from unnecessary needle sticks and saves you time and money by making more efficient use of your space and time.
Microneedling has swiftly emerged as one of the hottest treatments and technologies in Aesthetics. Utilizing tiny needles to penetrate the skin to generate new collagen for smoother skin and overall rejuvenation has allowed for an alternative solution to this treatment with a less intense delivery than competing technologies.
There are essentially two solutions when it comes to Microneedling; standard Microneedling using a Microneedling Pen and Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling, which maximizes the treatment outcome by combining RF delivery with microneedles to target the collagen for a more productive product effectively. The investment between the two is quite the jump; however, as Microneedling Pen's are a relatively lower initial investment cost while RF Microneedling machines are a more considerable initial investment.
Undoubtedly one of the most in-demand procedures in Aesthetics. Correcting sun damage using an IPL (intense pulsed light) technology has skyrocketed in aesthetics. The specific technology you select is critical when it comes to producing quality results for your patients. IPL devices are one of the most saturated technologies available for sale by a multitude of different manufactures. Not all IPL's are made equal. Two of the primary factors in an IPL's effectiveness are Joules and Pulse Duration. The great thing about this technology is that you can typically find it as apart of a multi-modality platform.
The ablative LAMBDA Fx CO2 lasers provide excellent skin rejuvenation and resurfacing through the vaporization of tissue with subsequent heating. This laser has multiple modes with a peak power of 60 Watts on Scanning Mode. It comes with various handpieces, including scanning handpieces, cutting handpieces, and gynecology handpieces.
How's the Photorejuvenation Market?
The photorejuvenation market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period. The key contributors to the market growth are the rising burden of skin diseases and people's increasing preferences towards non-invasive procedures. According to the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation, 2017, skin diseases contributed to around 1.76% of the total global burden diseases measured in DALYs.
Skin disorders largely depend on age. As age increases, the risk of acquiring skin disorder also increases. Some of the reasons include changes in the connective tissue, reduction in the skin's strength and elasticity, and reduced secretions from sebaceous glands. Hence, these factors are expected to fuel the demand for photorejuvenation market growth.
Half of the cosmetic procedures are performed in the united states, and the projected global growth is 12.2%. People are also looking for skilled people in achieving the functions, opening up space for highly trained physicians to grow. In 2016, 17 million non-invasive procedures were performed, of which 90% were women.

You're losing hair regardless of how healthy your hair is. In fact, its around 50-100 hair follicles a day! That might seem significant, but it won't be noticeable unless your hair regrowth slows down. That's where we at FACE come in as experts of hair growth. We have used low-level laser therapy to maintain and rejuvenate hair growth.
Our Helmets are equipped with 678nm diodes which creates the optimal results to stimulate hair growth. This will, improve hair oil quality, support hair regrowth, and build up existing hair follicles. This makes our helmets some of the most up to date technology on the market, give you the best results possible.
Of the 100 hairs, we lose from our scalp, the majority of people grow those hairs grow back, some people don't due to multiple factors that happen genetically or by life circumstances. These hair loss factors include:
Regrowing hair after any of those factors can be difficult, but at FACE, we manage to do it regardless of the circumstances. How do we do it?
Lasers. Sounds pretty awesome, and it is. By using our helmets, you can see significant results when it comes to your hair. There are many benefits to using our helmet, such as:
Low-level laser therapy, also known as red light therapy and cold laser therapy, highlights and empowers photons in the scalp tissues. These photons get absorbed by weak cells, which then encourages hair growth. At FACE, we use this type of treatment in our Laser Hair Growth Helmets.
Laser treatment works for hair loss by using low-dose laser treatments that stimulate blood flow to hair follicles. By using this method it stimulates and encourages hair follicles to grow hair. This study in 2014 shows that it is a safe and effective method of hair regrowth.
Laser helmets are vital in treating hair loss, but all lasers are not created equal. Our product has 272 diode lasers that are specially developed, high-efficiency lasers that allow delivering the most significant amount of light and coverage for the total scalp area. The lasers are precisely crafted to promote maximum hair growth. Laser Helmet lasers reverse the thinning of follicles. Follicles will then eventually return to their normal healthy state after being exposed to our specialized lasers.
Over time your hair will start to thin and eventually stop growing. Reversing hair thinning is the first step to getting your hair back by halting any further loss after the first 20 or so treatments. The next stage is re-growing your hair. Laser Helmet also grows hair after around 52 treatments.
You don't have to accept it anymore that your hair and skin are aging. The science is here to slow down aging and even bring back youthful-looking skin drastically. Fibroblast Growth Factor is revolutionizing how we treat our aging skin and hair.
Scientists discovered Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) in pituitary extracts in 1973. FGFs exert their physiological roles through regulating developmental pathways, controlling events in the early embryo through the development of multiple organ systems. A defining property of FGFs is that they bind to heparin and heparan sulfate.
Fibroblast are cells that are involved in crucial elements for healthy skin and hair development. These cells generally act as circulating molecules that activate surface receptors. Put simply, they rejuvenate the skin and hair to promote new growth.
Utilizing the fibroblast growth factor will give your skin new life and grant thickness and even growth to your hair. How can you start using FGF?
We at FACE have a groundbreaking product that can support you in maintaining youthful skin and hair.
Pep Factor is designed from the ground up to enhance Fibroblast cells. FGF regulates a range of various biological functions, including cellular proliferation, survival migration, differentiation as well as the regeneration of tissue, including skin and hair follicles. UMA's research laboratory has created this unique formula.
How does it work?
Skin is the largest organ of the human body, protecting it against external aggressions, such as microorganisms, chemicals, and physical agents, including sun rays. Aging is a complex and constant biological process characterized by cellular and molecular changes, with progressive reduction of the body's capacity to keep homeostasis and an increase in senescence and apoptosis. This process varies between individuals and from organ to organ, and skin exhibits the effects of the passage of time most evidently.
Also, the use of ultraviolet radiation, excessive alcohol consumption, tobacco abuse, environmental pollution, and other factors can influence and accelerate this physiological process, causing premature skin aging.
By stimulating the proliferation of cells such as fibroblasts, growth factors play a significant role in the skin repair process, inducing reepithelialization through the replacement of disorganized collagen and elastin structures and the reposition of the extracellular matrix in aged skin.
The use of growth factors is a new anti-aging strategy to rejuvenate and reverse the signs of photoaged skin. Understanding the role of growth factors in wound healing may predict their role in skin infrastructure remodeling and skin rejuvenation.
In this study, the researches compiled plenty of evidence to support the powers of FGF for the use of hair regrowth. Here are some of the results observed in the study.
The evidence and testing of FGF on hair growth are substantial, and I invite you to read that full report to see how extensive the research was.
Evidence shows that FGF works, and at FACE, we have the products necessary for you to use on your hair and skin. Start rejuvenating your skin to maintain
We at FACE Medical Supply are experts at hair. We get hair and know what it takes for hair on the scalp to grow. His made up of 20 different cell types that each have their unique role in the growth of hair. The manner of hair growth occurs in distinct consecutive stages.
The first stage of hair growth is called anagen and is the active growth phase. Telogen is the resting stage; catagen is the regression of the hair follicle phase, exogen is when the hair falls out of the scalp. Lastly, kenogen is the phase that occurs between the empty hair follicle and the start of a new hair follicle.
The structure of the hair is made up of:
The Papilla is the most massive structure and of a follicle and is located at the base of a single strand of hair. The Hair Matrix Surrounds the papilla. A Root Sheath consists of two different types of external and internal. The Bulge is found in the outer root sheath at the insertion point of the arrector pili muscle. It is home to several types of stem cells, which supply the entire hair follicle with new cells.
Anagen Phase. This phase is where 90% of hair growth occurs. During which the base of the hair is constantly dividing, adding to the hair shaft. The hair typically grows about 1 cm every 28 days. The hair on your head stays in this active phase of growth for 2–7 years.
Catagen phase. In this phase, an unknown signal is sent to end the continuous growth of hair. This stage lasts for about 2 to 3 weeks while the hair changes to become club hair. During this phase, the hair is cut off from its blood supply. This stops the cells from producing new hair. This process takes about two weeks to produce club hair, after which the hair enters the telogen phase.
Telogen phase. This is also referred to as the resting phase of the hair follicle. When the body is subjected to extreme stress, some hair can enter this stage prematurely, causing hair to fall out. Fifty to one-hundred club hair are shed daily from a healthy scalp.
Androgenetic Alopecia - A form of hair loss in both men and women. For men, this is often referred to as "male pattern baldness." Hair is lost in a recognizable pattern starting above the temples. Eventually, the hairline recedes to form a characteristic "M" shape.
Researchers have discovered that this form of hair loss is related to hormones called androgens. Androgens are essential for healthy male sexual development before birth and during puberty. Androgens also have other vital functions in both males and females, such as regulating hair growth and sex drive.
Alopecia Areata - is a common autoimmune disorder that often results in unpredictable hair loss, and it affects around 7 million people in the United States. In most cases, hair falls out in small spots around the size of a quarter. For most people, the hair loss is nothing more than a few places, though in some cases it can be more extreme.
