The Natural Xpression, located in a sunny second-floor space at 6117 Ridge Avenue, offers a comprehensive menu of rejuvenating treatments.
This progressive, innovative medspa was developed by a Physician Assistant and two certified Nurse Practitioners – Alvin Kingcade PA-C, MS; Charlotte Hamilton MSN, CRNP; and Lori Dixon MSN, CRNP with over twenty years of professional experience. They want to help men and women improve their appearance and health through the latest advances in medical technology and nutrition.
“We looked at many areas and selected Roxborough due to its central location,” said Natural Xpression co-owner Charlotte Hamilton, MSN, CRNP. “Since we opened in August 2022, our landlord and local businesses have been very welcoming.”

One of the most popular treatments offered at The Natural Xpression is injections for weight loss, accompanied by nutritional guidance and meal planning. “When you go to restaurants, they serve double portions. We recommend requesting a takeout box to save half for later,” said Hamilton. “Patients can lose an average of 10 lbs. per month for up to five months. After that, we taper down the injections. As long as you have a healthy diet and exercise, you should be able to maintain your weight.”

Even with a healthy lifestyle, it’s sometimes difficult to get rid of excess fat in certain areas. “We have a device called InMode that uses electronic stimulation to increase muscle tone and get rid of fatty deposits,” said Hamilton. “However, before we recommend any of our treatments, we do an extensive intake and medical history. We want to make sure there are no negative interactions with your current medications or health issues.”

Another option for reducing fatty deposits is Aqualyx, an injectable treatment that dissolves small pockets of excess fat under the skin. This non-invasive procedure is used to treat fatty deposits along the jawline and on the knees, elbows, upper arms, muffin top, and other small areas. It is not used in larger areas such as the thighs, buttocks or stomach.
For men and women seeking to improve their muscle tone before hitting the beach this summer, The Natural Xpression offers an innovative, non-invasive technology called Tone which enhances the shape and strength of your body. Multiple body areas can be treated simultaneously leaving you with a more toned and defined physique.
The Natural Xpression can also help men dealing with erectile dysfunction and low testosterone through testosterone replacement therapy. This therapy can come in the form of patches, creams, pellets, and tablets but the most cost-effective treatment is injections. Injections are typically painless and can be done twice a month. A physical exam will include assessment of medical history, sexual history, mental health, and medication. Lab tests will assess hormonal and metabolic conditions.
