What is a MedSpa?

A medspa, or a medical spa, brings together the regular day spa experience and the benefits of a medical clinic.  When looking at the difference between a regular spa and medical spa, you see that there are more medically related treatments available at a medical spa.  Medical skin care is available to work on improving the appearance of wrinkles, sunspots, and other causes of lackluster skin.

At a medical spa, laser hair removal and treatments for veins and scars are generally available as well. What each medical spa offers are dependent upon the physicians.  The focal point at most medical spas is on anti-aging and maintaining youthful skin.  Botox, laser hair removal, and collagen injection are only a few of the many popular options at a medspa.

Medical spas provide a relaxing environment that pays extreme attention to each client and their needs.  Making sure people leave the medspa feeling beautiful is a major goal.

While the chance to choose various beauty treatments exists at a medical spa, so does the chance to be pampered.  The options available at standard day spas are available at medical spas as well.  Massages, facials, body wraps, and more are available at a medspa. The environment is relaxed and soothing, making it a great option when trying to enhance the body while simultaneously trying to relax.

The quality of services at a medspa are generally higher than that of the regular day spa.  There are actually medical grade products available, making a safer and healthier spa experience.  The ambience is the same, but the products (such as chemical peels) available are far greater in quality.

Documentation at a medical spa is far greater than at a day spa. The treatments performed and the services intended to be performed and received are documented and carefully tracked. Questionnaires are often handed out to first time clients in order to obtain a sense of medical history.

When heading for the first time, physicians may desire to have a consultation prior to performing medical procedures such as injections and lasers. Careful thought needs to be taken prior to receiving laser treatment.  Without thinking about the services or understanding steps to be taken prior to the procedure, there could be issues with blood-thinning medications and other subjects. Once checked in, informed and ready to go, clients can bask in the soothing experience.

Essentially, the medspa is a place to relax, recharge, and improve the body and mind.  The soothing aspect of the traditional day spa, tied with the available options for cosmetic enhancements creates the perfect package. Cosmetic treatments can be received in the most comfortable environment, with options to totally rewind, relax, and recharge.
