What does medical spa mean?
A medical spa is different from a traditional day spa in the treatments it offers to its clientele and in that it is licensed and under the ownership of a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. A medical spa is able to provide more complex and advanced treatments due to the nature of the business. As they operate under the supervision of a licensed medical practitioner, such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, they are able to perform more invasive treatments that can penetrate below the surface of the skin. They are like a cross between a medical clinic and a traditional day spa in that they offer more medically-based treatments but with the ambiance and atmosphere of a spa. There may be some overlap in treatment offerings between a day spa and a medical spa, with both setting providing massages, facials, salt glows and seaweed wraps, but a medical spa can also provide treatments that are typically only available through a dermatologist or plastic surgeon’s office.
What is the difference between a medical spa and a regular spa?
A medical spa and a regular spa differ in their management structure and the full menu of treatments they offer. A medical spa requires that the practitioners perform the services they provide under the direction or broad supervision of a licensed plastic surgeon or dermatologist. The practitioners in a medical spa need to be trained, experienced and have the proper qualifications or certifications to perform the procedures they are offering. While some services can overlap between a medical spa and a traditional day spa, a medical spa is focused more on services that provide results as opposed to a day spa that primarily focuses on relaxing and pampering treatments. Both offer a relaxing, luxurious atmosphere for their clients and can provide services such as massages, seaweed wraps and facials. Medical spas will offer additional services that are more specialized and advanced, such as chemical peels, light and laser treatments, and injectables.
What does a medical spa offer?
Each medical spa will have a slightly different offering based on the experience and training of the practitioners who work there, as well as dependent on the dermatologist or plastic surgeon that owns and runs the spa. They will want to provide services that are applicable and sought after by the demographic of the prospective clients in their area as well and will cater their offering to fit the neighborhood where they are located. That being said, on top of treatments that are similar to a day spa, such as massages and facials, a medical spa will offer treatments that are based in medical procedures and scientifically proven to deliver results. These medical treatments can include injectables such as Botox, Juvederm and Restalyne, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, light and laser treatments and derma fillers. These treatments target skin concerns such as wrinkles and fine lines, acne, scarring, stretch marks, age and sun spots, hyperpigmentation and hair removal.
