What is a Med Spa?

Med spas have gotten a lot of airtime in recent years by men and women alike, including many of our favorite celebrities. A med spa - short for medical spa - combines the serenity and relaxation of a traditional day spa with a medical center that offers nonsurgical aesthetic medical services under the care of a trained physician and a team of nurses and aestheticians. Offering a more relaxed, patient-focused experience, more and more people are turning to med spa treatments to enhance their physical appearance, boost their overall confidence, and turn back the clock.

What Services Do Med Spas Offer?

The services provided vary depending on location, but a few of the most common nonsurgical procedures are Botox, dermal fillers, and laser hair removal.

Medical spa treatments can include corrective medical-grade skin care products as well as anti-aging procedures that treat lines, wrinkles, sun spots, sagging skin, facial volume loss, and other unwanted conditions of aging skin. Other offerings include laser hair removal treatments, as well as vein, scar and stretch mark therapy.

The most popular procedure however is Botox. With remarkable anti-aging effects, within just two weeks, patients notice a significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. FDA-approved since 2000, it is also completely safe, with one study finding an extremely low, 0.24% rate of complications - in other words, patients have a 99.7% chance of experiencing zero complications!

What is the Med Spa Experience Like?

While some med spas are more spa-like in ambiance, others don more of a clinical vibe. Similarly to a day spa, you can still enjoy many of the same luxurious treatments like massage and facial at a med spa. While a day spa aims to relax and refresh you, a med spa aims to deliver noticeable results for common skin issues like aging skin and acne. Day spa or med spa, you can expect to be pampered and leave feeling rejuvenated - but leaving a med spa means you’ll leave looking rejuvenated, too.
