Medical Spa Q & A

What is a medical spa?

A medical spa combines the luxurious spa experience with aesthetic medical treatments. The team at Progressive Care for Women want you to always feel your best and offers a wide range of services to revitalize and rejuvenate your look.

Whether you’re trying to erase lines and wrinkles, rejuvenate your skin, or get rid of unwanted hair or unsightly veins, the experienced team has got you covered.

What are medical spa services?

Progressive Care for Women is a full-service medical spa and offers some of the most advanced aesthetic treatments available. Some of the medical spa services include:

Sublative Skin Rejuvenation

This treatment works by placing heat energy directly into your skin’s dermis with little pain and minimal downtime. This increases the production of collagen and elastin, which reduces wrinkles and textural irregularities (e.g. acne scarring).


The team at Progressive Care for Women offers a number of facials to meet your very specific skin care needs, including anti-aging, calming, and acne clearing.

Laser hair removal

Progressive Care for Women offers an advanced laser hair removal system that combines laser and radiofrequency energy to destroy the hair follicles under your skin and remove unwanted hair.

Intense-pulsed light (IPL)

IPL is an aesthetic treatment that uses fast pulses of light energy to remove skin pigmentation and surface veins to improve your skin tone.

Vein treatments

The experienced team at Progressive Care for Women also helps you get rid of any unsightly varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy. This special chemical injection causes pronounced veins to collapse and disappear.

Post Treatment Instructions for Spider Veins


To help rid your body of stubborn pockets of fat, Progressive Care for Women offers CoolSculpting, a nonsurgical body contouring tool that uses freezing cold temperatures to destroy fat cells.

The team at Progressive Care for Women also offers eyebrow tinting, as well as Latisse® for fuller eyelashes and a special line of skin care products that can be customized to meet your specific skin care needs. Learn More.

Products Available


Latisse (bimatoprost) is a prescription solution used to treat inadequate eyelashes (hypotrichosis). With regular applications along the lash line of the upper eyelid, Latisse gradually encourages growth of longer, thicker and darker eyelashes. Results may be visible as early as 8 weeks, with full results at 16 weeks. Eyelash improvements remain as long as you continue to use the medication. When you stop using Latisse, your eyelashes will eventually return to their original appearance.

Potential side effects of Latisse include:

  • Itchy, red eyes
  • Dry eyes
  • Darkened eyelids
  • Darkened brown pigmentation in the colored part of the eye (iris)
  • Hair growth around the eyes if the medication regularly runs or drips off the eyelids

Although darkened eyelids might fade when the medication is stopped, any changes in iris color are likely to be permanent.

We offer one size of Latisse: 

5ml – $170 (10 week supply)

Skin Care

Bioelements are professional skin care products available for all skin types. Since 1991, skin care specialists have been using these highly individualized formulas to treat the skin. Our esthetician will help tailor a home skin care regimen to meet your needs. Our products are comprehensive and include treatments for anti-aging, acne, oily, dry or sensitive skin.


A prescription medicine is injected into muscles to diminish the lines on your face. Our certified physicians and nurse practitioner can skillfully revitalize your face’s youthful appearance. The safety record of Botox is well-established and side effects are rare.

Results of your treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect, although many people will recognize the benefits within 3 days of treatment. The benefits usually last 3-4 months.
