Today’s spas, medical or not, offer many services beyond massage, facials and mani/pedis. A variety of popular cosmetic procedures like laser treatments and fillers are commonplace in the spa world. But, there is a crucial difference to consider when choosing where to go, and there are times when choosing a Medical Spa matters.

Let’s start with the basics of making your spa choice. Whether it be for a day of indulgence or a cosmetic treatment, there are three main things to take into account:

  1. The Brand: Are they a reputable spa who stand behind their staff and the procedures they provide?
  2. The Experience: What’s the atmosphere like? How do you feel when you walk in? How does the staff treat you?
  3. The Results: How do you feel when you leave, and the week after that? Was your treatment of choice one you would recommend? Do you look forward to going back the spa?

When deciding to go in for a cosmetic procedure there’s one more factor to add to the list above: the training.

Medical spas are a combination of a medical clinic and a day spa. They operate under the supervision of a medical director with a staff of medically trained technicians. And here’s where the difference between a medical day spa and a regular day spa is critical: at a medical spa, laser treatments, botox, fillers are treated as medical procedures, not cosmetic treatments.

With all the recent coverage of botched cosmetic treatments coming to the surface, it is more crucial than ever to make sure your facility of choice is on the up and up.
