we help men and woman of all ages and all shapes and sizes, transform their bodies from head to toe (chin to ankles), safely and effectively






  • 80% of people who lose weight regain what they lost and get bigger than their original size

  • 70% of adults in the United States are overweight or obese

  • current methods do not work or are not affordable such as cosmetic surgery, CoolSculpting (cryolipolysis), and diet and exercise alone

Melissa Shortino Body Transformation Systems began with a dream. Melissa's dream was to help those who struggle with fluxuating weight, stubborn problem areas, and poor body image... just as she had for most of her life.

Upon the discovery of a body sculpting device that was proven to actually work, and showed incredible immediate and long-term results, Melissa was determined to bring this technology to south central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland. This lead to exhaustive research in the areas of the weight loss industry, competitive technologies, and a deep dive into what people really wanted in terms of the health and aesthetics of the bodies. 

The next step was to determine how to make this innovative new procedure affordable to more than just the wealthy. From day one, Melissa's goal was to find a way to help those in need of weight loss, a means of being able to afford this solution. And that is how the business plan was developed.

After a nail biting wait for the laser to be built and shipped from overseas, MSBTS officially opened its doors on January 21, 2020 and grew into a great success. As time passed, we added additional procedures to accommodate the needs of our patients. After seeing thousands of patients, experiencing rapid growth and expansion, and the ups and downs and growing pains of a new business, the decision was make to slow down and stay true to our patients. 

The intimacy and relationships that had been built in the beginning were suffering due to the accelerated growth of the company. Bigger isn't always better and the priority became getting back to the core values. Helping patients was ultimately top priority. 

As a result, we are back to a smaller and more personalized experience for our patients.... a boutique med spa offering the best quality from a caring team of experts in a comfortable atmosphere. The space is calming, not clinical, warm and pleasant. 

We welcome you to see and experience for yourself a med spa that cares. Your results matter as you are our priority and the reason we are able to continue serving our community. Thank you for your patronage.
