What is a Medical Spa?
Medical spas, also known as medspa, medi-spas, medical spa, blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.
What is the difference between a day spa and medical spa?
Medical aesthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, fruit peels and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at many medical spas, health clinics offices are more intense and offer much more noticeable results.
Aesthetic medicine includes all procedures in the field of aesthetics except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Aesthetic procedures include dermal fillers such as Botox, Juvederm and Restalyne, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments and many more.
