What You Need To Know About Medical Spas

If you feel like your life has been overtaken by stress and tension, you’re probably looking for a way to release both of them. If you’re looking for a place to relax, to decompress and revitalize yourself, you may want to seriously consider visiting a medical spa in your area.

What is a medical spa? It’s very simple; a medical spa or medi spa, is basically a cross between a medical clinic and a traditional spa, which allows people who visit a chance to have the best of both worlds. A visit to a medical spa means people can get the medical expertise you’d find on a doctor visit with the revitalization and relaxation of a spa.

If you’re a regular visitor to a day spa and you’re wondering what the difference is between that and a medical spa, the only real differences are the services offered by each. Perhaps the biggest difference on that note is that medi spas can offer certain kinds of medical procedures, which are overseen by surgeons, doctors and dermatologists. Day spas can’t offer medical treatments and also tend to be more posh than medi spas, as those are more results-driven.

So what kinds of treatments can you expect to find at a medical spa, such as an anti aging medical spa? You might expect to see the following treatments:

  • Anti-aging treatments
  • Facials
  • Acne treatments
  • Hair removal treatments
  • Salt glows
  • Laser treatments
  • Massages
  • Light treatments
  • Seaweed wraps
  • Botox and other injection treatments
  • Chemical peels

As you can see, there’s little doubt of the multitude of treatments found at most medical spas. If you’re dealing with some pesky acne or wrinkles or even reoccurring headaches, Botox injections might be very beneficial.

When you think of Botox, you might picture treatments that only the rich and powerful have access to in order to make themselves look 10 years younger. But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Botox injections can treat a great many things including acne, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, lazy eye, neck spasms and even migraines.

Each wellness spa is going to vary in its pricing, but Botox injections are typically measured in units. Each unit can run $10-15 and it takes roughly 20 of those to do a forehead injection to treat horizontal forehead lines. Before you do any treatments, you might consult doctors or other professionals about what you can expect to pay for the injections you’re looking for.

It should be noted there are some risks involved with Botox, which can include crooked smile or drooling, droopy eyelids or cockeyed eyebrows, headaches and pain or swelling at the sight of the injection. But if done correctly by experienced professionals, the effects of Botox can last as long as three months, meaning you should have clearer, healthier and younger looking skin. Keep in mind though that you usually need to have follow-up Botox injections to maintain the effects you’re aiming for.

If you’re looking to have some more intimate medical procedures done, a medical spa can be the answer to your prayers. If you’re looking for something like laser hair removal, that can be done in as little as 15-30 minutes. You can rest easy at a medical spa when it comes to any kind of procedures because they are performed by experienced professionals. Even for non-complex procedures, training skin wellness and skin care therapists can perform Botox injections and many of the other treatments which were previously mentioned.

So if you’re wondering whether a medical spa is the best place for you, the answer in many cases can be a resounding yes. Of course, it depends on what kind of skin care treatment you’re seeking help for. If you’re dealing with a serious or severe medical issue, like severe acne or infections, it’s best to seek out the advice of a dermatologists or even emergency room doctors if the issue is severe enough. But if you’re looking for Botox injections, anti-aging treatments, laser treatments and other methods that can contribute to making your skin look better and making you feel more relaxed, then a medical spa is the place you need to be.
