Althea is a common flower known both for its exquisite beauty and for its healing properties. It has been used for centuries in tea to treat intestinal ailments and in compresses to treat wounds. It is thus a fitting symbol for our medical spa.
Althea is a full service medical spa specializing in pain-free hair removal and related laser services.
Althea uses the latest and most advanced FDA-approved laser technology and its safe and effective cosmetic applications with minimal discomfort and downtime.
We worked very hard on it and we hope you like it!

It has been quite an eventful day today at Althea Medspa. This morning, our product representative from Topix Pharmaceutcals Inc., came in to review all of our current Althea Medspa Brand skin care products and their purposes. Furthermore, we were introduced to the new and improvised products that are available for distribution.
Topix Pharmaceutical Inc. is located in New York, where the Topix team of chemists, microbiologists, and lab technicians, work day and night to formulate topical therapeutic skin care products. These FDA approved products can only be purchased through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, skin care professionals, or medical spas, such as Althea Medspa. All of Althea Medspa Brand products are pharmaceutical quality and are meant to rejuvenate and improve skin health.
After our Topix Product Seminar, Mira also had the priveledge of demonstrating and educating our certified technicians and staff on the new procedures available at our spa. In addition to our popular Microdermabrasion and Hydromicrodermabrasion treatments, Althea now offers the two following treatments: Microdermabrasian and Facial, and Hydromicrodermabrasion and Facial. The staff had a wonderful time further learning about skin care, and how to provide the best quality service to our esteemed clients.
