5 Questions to Ask Med Spas

What is a medical spa?

In general, a medical spa refers to a spa that treats and addresses more complex issues than a typical day spa. A medical spa goes far beyond typical treatments, such as pedicures and facials. Most medical spas are more similar to a clinic environment, with advanced tools and machinery, as well as licensed professionals that can administer specific types of treatments that are typically more intensive than classic aesthetic treatments.

Some medical spas will also be under the supervision of a licensed medical professional, such as a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, a physician that specializes in skin related disorders and issues. At True Laser Spa, we are a medical spa with a wide variety of services available, and have a team of experienced, licensed professionals available to help you.

What treatments are offered at a med spa?

Medical spas, or med spas, may differ in the types of treatments offered, but usually they go beyond the classic day spa treatments such as pedicures, manicures, or basic facials. Medical spas will usually offer more intensive treatments, such as laser hair removal, chemical peels, or other facial and skin related treatments such as Botox or fillers.

At True Laser Spa, we offer a wide variety of services, including those mentioned above, as well as body contouring, customized facials, regenerative therapy, teeth whitening, microneedling, permanent makeup, hair restoration, and more. From head to toe, we have up to date, efficient, effective treatments to help you look and feel your best.

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

A day spa is typically more focused on simpler, aesthetic treatments, that don’t usually require more intensive, complex care and tools. You might go to a day spa for a pedicure, basic facial, massage, or simply a day of relaxation. Since a medical spa can include services such as Botox or laser hair removal, they require a more sterile, clinic-type environment, with professionals on staff that are licensed to administer such treatments.

A medical spa may also be supervised or overseen by a director with specific medical training, such as a plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Also, as a client, you will likely visit a medical spa more regularly, as they become familiar with your specific needs and goals and may administer repeat treatments, whereas you may only visit a day spa on occasion.

What are the most popular Medical Spa Treatments?

Some of the most current popular medical spa treatments are: Botox, dermal fillers (facial or lip fillers), laser hair removal, and dermabrasion facials, or facials that are more intensive and go beyond the top layer of the skin to achieve more effective results. At True Laser Spa, we offer all of the above treatments, as well as many more services for your face and body, including body toning and contouring, and treatments targeted to reduce fat and cellulite.

Do you have certified practitioners doing the treatments?

Yes. At True Laser Spa, we have a team of experienced, licensed professionals administering all of our treatments. As a client, it’s important to know that your treatment will be administered in a safe, clean environment by an experienced practitioner, and that’s what we offer at True Laser Spa.

Certain treatments, such as laser hair removal or Botox, require specialized training and a specific license, and our team members have undergone all appropriate training.
