Med spas, also known as medical spas, are aesthetic clinics that offer medical-grade cosmetic procedures, such as dermal fillers, laser skin treatments and non-surgical body sculpting. They are staffed with clinicians who are experienced in rejuvenation and transformation, providing treatments that can enhance one’s natural beauty and take years off their appearance.

What is a medical spa?


A medical spa, often referred to as a med spa, is an aesthetic clinic that specializes in non-surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. They are operated by a licensed physician and are typically staffed with nurses that assist in performing a number of procedures. Medical spas offer treatments that rejuvenate the skin and minimize the signs of aging.

What are the differences between a Day Spa and Med Spa?


There are many differences between med spas and day spas, most notably the presence of a physician. Med spas have a licensed physician on-site and can offer medical-grade treatments such as dermal fillers and body sculpting. Day spas are not staffed with a medical doctor and can therefore not offer the same caliber of cosmetic care. Instead, they focus on massage therapy and facials with the intent of inducing relaxation. Med spas have more of a focus on addressing medical concerns and providing aesthetic enhancements that have the potential to dramatically rejuvenate one’s appearance.

What are the most popular Medical Spa Treatments?


The most popular med spa treatments include:

Dermal Fillers — Dermal fillers are the most popular med spa service, with millions of procedures performed every year. Hyaluronic acid makes up over two million of the dermal procedures performed each year, which is the main component of popular fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane and Restylane Lyft.

Laser Hair Removal — One of the most common treatments performed at a med spa is laser hair removal. This procedure is an effective alternative to shaving that provides minimal discomfort and longer-lasting results.

Chemical Peels — Chemical peels range in intensity, with mild peels that affect the superficial layer of skin, and strong peels that penetrate the deep layers of skin. These are a favorite among both med spa clients and dermatologists.
