2024 L+A Longevity Report: Trends Medical + Spa Skin Pros Can Use

There’s been a shift in consumer behavior on how they perceive aging. Consumers are no longer accepting that the celebration of a milestone birthday makes them “old”. Consumers want to live more vibrant lives and are demanding treatments and services that can help them look and feel their best, regardless of age!  

L+A reached out to wellness expert and board-certified physician, Dr. Chantal Lunderville to give us her perspective on Longevity in the medical + spa skin care industry. 

Today’s consumer has the option of better living through technology. Innovation has helped to drive the growth of the medical + spa skin care industry over the past five to ten years. All of this growth and expansion gives medical + spa skin pros the ability to help clients live better at every age! 

It’s not about anti-aging, it’s about living better regardless of age! Consumers want longevity! 

In today’s market, the resources available to medical + spa skin pros are immense. There are now devices, certifications, new treatments, and new product ingredients that didn’t exist five, ten, or fifteen years ago. Product formulation has evolved and is now more sophisticated than ever before. 

Total Body Longevity Tools for Medical + Spa Skin Pros

Over the past year as L+A has traveled globally, we’ve noted a segment of devices that is expanding more than any other. LED Light Therapy has grown exponentially over the past five years! One brand has leveraged LED Light Therapy technology to create devices for overall body wellness that can help boost longevity and can be made a part of almost every patient experience. 

Another area of the medical + spa skin care industry that L+A has featured in our news, reviews, and education is nutrition. The nutrition offerings have also ramped up over the past few years. Now it’s truly amazing that there’s a course called the Nutrition Certified Estheticians to help estys them learn what they need to know about nutrition and how it impacts the wellness and longevity of their patients. 

However, more than just good nutrition, the skin needs all the nutrient support it can get as patients age. L+A has found a supplement that contains a breakthrough molecule that will enhance cell energy, accelerate recovery, and promote skin health and overall longevity! 

Skin Care Longevity Tools for Medical + Spa Skin Pros 

The advancements in technology in the medical + spa skin care market are non-stop – especially from one of our sponsors who is a globally recognized device manufacturer. In May of 2024, we received an exclusive announcement about their all-new skin care device that has four modalities that are ideal to help boost the longevity of skin through exfoliation, infusion, and recovery! 

L+A was in Canada for ESI in April and came across a Canadian brand of skin care that has incredible products for women that are ideal for managing all stages of menopausal skin. 

Hair Care Longevity Tools for Medical + Spa Skin Pros 

Science continues to advance in all areas of our industry. There is new technology being launched regularly. L+A received an exclusive announcement on June 1, 2024, from one of our sponsors about an all-new device that uses cold plasma on the scalp for hair rejuvenation! This all-new device can be used in treatment and then medical + spa skin pros can recommend home care for hair rejuvenation from a global leader that we work with.

Dr. Chantal Lunderville on Longevity and the Medical + Spa Skin Care Industry 

L+A  reached out to Dr. Chantal Lunderville, Board Certified Physician, Medical Director, and Luxury Events Founder, and asked her to weigh in on what longevity means to her

“I remember when I was a family medicine doctor at the time that a 45-year-old woman came into my office feeling exasperated that all her labs and testing had come back normal, yet she still felt fatigued, run-down, and like something was “off”. As much as I wanted to help her, I was limited in what I knew how to do. I could offer medications and some short-lived emotional support.  It wasn’t until much later in my career that I was able to see where we fall short in the healthcare system.

It wasn’t until after leaving general practitioner care and becoming a medical director for holistic practices and medical spas, that I realized the missing link. In my new roles, I was able to start helping women feel their most confident selves, rather than just rule out that something was “wrong with them”. I began to see the spa industry as part of what healthcare should give us – rather than what it often does not! It should give us a sense of community, care, respite, recovery, ancient healing arts, nervous system regulation, and so much more.

I began to research longevity and read books about the Blue Zones, biohacking, hormonal health, and balancing, as well as optimizing our environment to avoid chemicals, all of which I never learned in medical school. Later, I would throw health events on these topics to help women of all ages learn together in a fun and safe environment. 

One of the biggest lessons I emphasize to patients is that their environment matters. I teach them to get curious about everything they’re breathing in, putting on their body, and eating. I also teach that a sense of connectedness improves longevity, whether that is through getting a massage in nature or seeing your favorite aesthetician and feeling that dopamine surge at your monthly facial, or joining a walking group. 

I’m very passionate that wellness is what our communities really need beyond access to basic medical care. 

I would love to see you at our next Women’s Health Summit, follow me for more longevity and aesthetic spa content on Instagram @drchantallunderville, or check out my podcast on YouTube “Dr. C Spills the Medical Tea” and on all podcast platforms.” Dr. Chantal Lunderville 

NAD+ Vitalized Supplement from Aramore

Natural NAD+ production gradually decreases with age, making it vital to replace NAD+ precursors that support sustained NAD+ levels as you get older. Low NAD+ precursor levels can lead to chronic health problems, weak immune responses, and aging skin, among other issues [19].

Regularly taking a supplement containing NMN or other NAD+ precursors activates a cascade of protective enzymes that help extend the lifespan by providing full-body revitalization [15, 20]. NAD+ precursors are especially useful because they protect your DNA from damage.

The Aramore NAD+ Vitalize AM Supplement supports the healthy functioning of 8 biological pathways of skin aging, to slow down the aging process and regenerate skin from within. It provides the cellular energy your skin needs to maintain its health and defend itself throughout the day. Powered by NAD+ precursors (NMN, niacinamide) combined with powerful antioxidants (CoQ10, astaxanthin, vitamin C) and hyaluronic acid so skin acts and looks younger. The visible effects? Skin that is soft, smooth, firm, plump, and glowing.

Celluma for Overall Wellness with LED Light Therapy

The whole-body healing benefits of light therapy go well beyond skin deep. We all know that complete wellness is a function of not only looking good but feeling good on the inside as well. Celluma’s shape-taking, FDA-cleared devices give you the opportunity for whole-body, whole-family wellness (even pets!).

Research has shown that light therapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve acne-prone skin, skin tone, texture, and clarity, decrease under-eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasms, and pain associated with arthritis. And now, it can also be effectively used for body contouring! Celluma really does check all the boxes when it comes to head-to-toe wellness options.

Whether you are looking to combat hair loss, the aches, pains, and wrinkles that come with aging, acne-prone skin, or you just want to sculpt your body, light therapy is a natural method to improve cellular performance so you can heal from the inside out. Low-level light therapy is scientifically proven to be an effective and safe treatment and is also non-invasive, non-toxic, and painless. Use the healing power of Celluma to look good on the outside and feel good on the inside!

Lipo X Cavitation + RF Vacuum Skin Care Machine from Spa & Equipment

Body contouring is a huge part of the medical + spa skin care industry. It’s also a growing segment. Consumers are demanding treatments that help to eliminate stubborn body fat that can’t be impacted by diet and exercise. Luckily, many brands are investing in this technology and are providing medispas with the ability to meet consumer demand. 

One key issue in skin health over time is skin laxity. Skin loses skin laxity as the dermal collagen starts to break down. This can be one of the most obvious signs of skin aging. This happens all over the body, on the face, neck, hands, legs and arms. This is exacerbated after any type of treatment that helps to treat body fat. 

We’re so excited to learn more about the Lipo X Cavitation + RF Vacuum Skin Care Machine, a comprehensive solution for advanced body treatments skincare treatments. Combining the power of cavitation, radio frequency (RF), and vacuum technologies, this machine offers a revolutionary approach to body and skincare. It effectively targets stubborn fat deposits, cellulite, and loose skin, delivering noticeable results. The RF and vacuum functions work synergistically to tighten and tone the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and improving overall texture.

Nutrition Certified Esthetician Program from Spectrum Advanced Aesthetic Institute

When Mary Neilsen from Spectrum Advanced Aesthetic Institute told us that the school would begin to offer a course called the Nutrition Certified Esthetician Program, we were so excited! L+A has been reporting on the nutrition/skin connection for years. We’ve encouraged skin pros to create alliances with nutritionists so they can refer patients to a professional who can do a deep dive into nutrition. 

Now, with the online or in-person Nutrition Certified Esthetician Program, skin pros can learn basic knowledge of how foods can impact the skin. This course does not give any esthetician the ability to give nutritional advice, but it will help estheticians understand how food can make skin conditions worse. It can help estheticians understand more about their clients’ overall skin health. 

Spectrum believes this course is vital to creating a successful treatment plan for your clients’ skin health.
