What types of dermatology treatments are available at a med spa?
If you have skin, hair, and nail concerns, dermatology treatments can help treat your condition.

The medical team can also advise you regarding the best products for your skin type, skin concerns, and to help your skin look younger and rejuvenated.
What is IPL therapy?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is often part of a comprehensive skin care treatment plan that uses a high-intensity light source to treat dermatology concerns and the signs of aging. IPL treatments are a noninvasive, painless technique that can help improve the look of:
- Birthmarks and freckles
- Broken blood vessels and red rosacea bumps
- Sun-damaged skin
- Melasma (brown spots)
- Uneven skin texture
It’s safe to receive IPL therapy on your face, hands, neck, and chest since IPL uses a less-focused wavelength than a laser. This means there’s less risk of damage to the surface of your skin. The unwanted pigment in your skin absorbs the intense pulsed light so dark spots appear lighter, resulting in an improved tone and texture overall.
When would I need to see a dermatologist?
The medical aesthetic specialists at My Retreat Med Spa can diagnose many types of skin conditions and prescribe treatments that improve your skin’s health and your overall wellness. If you still have problems even after you adjust your skin care routine, undergo appropriate treatments and therapies, or your skin condition is recurring, you may need to see a dermatologist. A board-certified dermatologist specializes in diseases such as:
- Fungal infections
- Hair disorders
- Nail conditions
If you want to improve your skin’s appearance and health, a medical aesthetic treatment may be a good place to begin. The team at My Retreat Med Spa specializes in many types of dermatology conditions, so you can get the treatment you need to look and feel more confident.
