Here at KIVA MedSpa + IV Lounge, our Tampa med spa treatments aim to reduce the signs of aging, enhance your natural beauty, and help you enjoy better health and wellness overall.

Our relaxing, spa-like atmosphere and customized plans set us apart from traditional doctors’ offices or surgery centers, allowing you to escape to a soothing oasis for your beauty and wellness needs. By blending cosmetic procedures with spa services and wellness advice, medical spas offer a comprehensive solution for people wanting to look and feel their best. In this guide, we’ll outline some of our most common med spa treatments, and what to expect from each procedure.

Botox Treatments

During the Botox procedure, our expert injector cleanses and marks the targeted areas, such as the forehead, glabella, or around the eyes. Very small amounts of the botulinum toxin are then administered using a thin needle. The process only takes around 15 minutes and is usually painless when performed by an experienced med spa provider.

Patients can expect results within 7-14 days, as Botox inhibits muscle movement, smoothing the appearance of expression lines. It’s important to know that potential side effects are mild and temporary, including minor or swelling at injection sites.

On average, Botox treatments last 3-6 months before muscle activity returns and lines reappear. For the best results, follow-up Botox injections are recommended every 3-6 months to maintain the wrinkle-reducing benefits.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels work to improve the appearance of your skin by removing the top layers of the epidermis. This exfoliation process stimulates new cell growth, resulting in a brighter, smoother complexion over time.

There are several types of chemical peels classified by depth and strength:

Superficial peels contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) like glycolic or lactic acid, which treat discoloration and fine lines. During the treatment, the solution is applied and remains on the skin for a few minutes.

Medium-depth peels use beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) like salicylic acid. In addition to fine lines and discoloration, they target acne scarring and sun damage. During the process, the solution is applied and remains on the skin longer for up to 20 minutes.

Patients will be given a topical ointment to apply to the skin regularly after their treatment to support and sooth the skin during the healing process. Post-peel, patients can expect redness, flaking, and peeling as their new skin forms. With proper sun protection, chemical peels will yield brighter, smoother, and more even skin tones within 1-4 weeks. Multiple treatments a few weeks apart provide optimal results.


Microneedling involves using sterile needles to create controlled skin injuries. As the skin heals, it stimulates collagen production, which improves the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks, and other textural issues.

During a microneedling treatment, a device with hundreds of tiny needles is rolled across the cleansed skin in various directions. This causes micro-punctures that trigger the body’s wound-healing process. Most patients experience minimal discomfort, often likened to a snap of a rubber band.

Afterwards, swelling and flaking can occur as new collagen forms over 1-2 weeks. A soothing gel or serum is applied to reduce irritation and speed healing, and sun protection is recommended until peeling ends.

To achieve optimal results with microneedling, multiple sessions are usually required, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Each treatment builds on the last as collagen regenerates at a deeper level each time.


Injectable treatments involve administering dermal fillers or neurotoxins to smooth expression lines, plump fine lines and wrinkles, or encourage collagen production.

During treatment, a topical numbing cream may be applied before very thin needles are used to inject the product. Rest assured that most patients feel minimal discomfort. Potential side effects like minor bruising, redness, or swelling are mild and temporary, while downtime is minimal to none.

The effects are seen gradually in 1-2 weeks as the skin incorporates the filler substance. On average, results last 6-18 months before touch-ups or maintenance are needed. With experienced administration, injectables are extremely effective in helping you achieve a youthful appearance.

IV Therapies

IV therapies are administered at our med spa to bypass the digestive system and help deliver hydration and nutrients directly to your body. Common IV treatments often provide hydration and electrolytes, while some help to increase energy and boost immunity and collagen production.

During an IV session, a small catheter is inserted into your forearm or hand. The IV bag is then hung, and fluid contents are slowly dripped over 30-60 minutes. Clients often feel revitalized with more energy, clearer skin, and a boosted mood. IV therapies are safe, but occasional side effects can include nausea, headache, or bruising at the injection site.

Overall, IV therapy provides a convenient and effective way to deliver concentrated amounts of hydration and wellness nutrients for anti-aging, glowing skin, and improved health. Take note that multiple sessions may be recommended for lasting benefits.
