5 Questions to ask Med Spas

What is a medical spa?

A medical spa is similar to a day spa by offering a calming, inviting atmosphere to clients and patients looking to receive treatments to improve their health. A medical spa operates under the direction of a qualified medical professional such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to provide their patients with the option for more complex, advanced treatments over and above what a day spa can offer. Medi spas can perform treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, IPL and Botox injections. The services offered by the medi spa will vary depending on the clinic, the doctor who owns the clinic and the staff on hand who perform to various procedures. For a complete list of the services offered, check the clinic’s website. Prior to any treatment, talk through the procedure thoroughly with the practitioner to understand what treatment and recovery looks like, what the risks and potential side effects could be and what would happen in the case of complications with your procedure.

What treatments are offered at a med spa?

The treatments offered will be dependent on the individual medi spa, so it is best to contact them directly to determine if they offer the services you are looking for. Treatments can include similar treatments to a day spa such as massages and facials, as well as more advanced and complex services that require medical training and certification. While the plastic surgeon or dermatologist overseeing the clinic may not perform the treatments themselves, they should be readily available should there be a need for consultation with them during the process. A medi spa can offer laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, Botox and filler injections, cool Sculpting and many other options. The medi spa services require additional, specialized training over and above the services offered in a traditional day spa, so it is important to ensure the clinic has practitioners trained in the procedures they provide.

What are the differences between a Day Spa and Med Spa?

Traditional day spas and medi spas have many similarities in their overall atmosphere to help patients and clients feel relaxed and comfortable by making their office space feel inviting and luxurious. A medi spa can perform many of the same treatments of a traditional day spa, such as massages, seaweed wraps and facials, but they are also able to perform more complex and advanced treatments under the supervision and direction of a qualified medical professional such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Practitioners at a medi spa have completed additional specialized training in the medical procedures and treatments that they offer.

What are the most popular Medical Spa Treatments?

The most popular treatments may vary by demographics of the area where the clinic is located, as well as the availability and training of practitioners on hand. In the US, the most popular treatments performed at medi spas include Botox and filler injections, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, aesthetician services and IPL treatments.

Botox and filler injections are the most common medi spa treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and rejuvenate aging skin. Botox has been approved by the FDA to treat frown lines.

Microdermabrasion is a method of removing the thick outer layer of skin by gently sanding it off using a minimally abrasive chemical.

Chemical peels use a chemical solution applied to the skin where the patient is looking to improve the skin’s appearance. The solution is left on the skin, where it will exfoliate and then peel off, revealing younger, smoother looking new skin.

The aesthetic services offered at a medi spa focus on skin and hair treatments. They can perform waxing, but they are also able to perform more advanced methods such as laser hair removal as well as hair restoration treatments.

IPL treatments are used for hair removal, as well as treat a variety of skin conditions. An IPL treatment has minimal downtime as the light energy used penetrates the skin without causing harm to the skin’s surface.
