What is a Medspa and How Can It Benefit Your Skin?

Have you been thinking about going to a medspa, but aren’t quite sure what it is or the benefits it can provide? You’ve come to the right place! The medical spa happens to be a place where you can go to escape. Life gets busy and sometimes you just need a bit of R&R and some time to experience a bit of luxury.

There happens to be plenty to know about medspas, especially when it comes to your skin and improving it. We’re going to run through everything you need to know about medical spas including how to choose the right one for you.

What is a Medspa?

A medspa is a magical place where you can go to relax while also receiving all different types of beneficial treatments.

The term medspa is short for “medical spa” and it can be thought of as somewhat of a combination of a regular day spa and a medical clinic. Medspas work to blend the relaxing experience that accompanies a traditional spa with the amazing treatments that are usually only offered at a doctor’s office. You get the best of both worlds!

Improving Your Skin with Medspa Treatments

Many of the services offered at medspas can work to help improve your skin. Whether it’s dark spots, wrinkles, or sun damage, a medspa is the place to take care of those pesky skin problems. Here are some of the treatments you can receive!

Limelight IPL

Limelight IPL is a type of laser therapy that targets things such as sun damage, brown spots, and skin redness. It’s a non-invasive treatment that will safely treat the skin and improve some of the skin problems many people experience.

When you get limelight IPL you can expect it to improve your skin tone and the imperfections that often pop up because of aging and the sun. 

How does it work? Essentially, a laser will deliver light to the skin which then absorbs the redness and pigmented spots in your skin. As heat is applied to the dermis of the skin the laser will stimulate collagen regrowth giving you those incredible results!

This treatment is another type of laser treatment that helps stimulate collagen production. This helps plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles along with other imperfections in the skin.

If you are to receive this treatment you can expect to feel some hot pinches from the laser. This is due to the tiny holes placed in the skin. The process helps remove columns of damaged tissue and stimulate the natural production of collagen.

Botox is another common treatment received at medspas. The botox is injected into certain areas of the face in order to help block nerve signals to your muscles. This means your muscles can’t tense up and therefore can’t cause things like wrinkles and signs of aging.

Getting botox means you can smooth fine lines and reduce wrinkles that appear on different areas of the face. That could be the forehead, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, and crow’s feet.

Botox is non-invasive and serves as a quick fix to common signs of aging. It can also be preventative when it comes to future signs of aging.

Filler is a treatment that’s often confused with botox. It involves injecting substances into the surface of the skin in order to add volume and fullness.

Getting dermal fillers can specifically help with things like enhancing shallow areas of the face, plumping up thinning lips, filling in the look of recessed scars, decreasing the shadow that appears under the eyes, and softening static wrinkles that commonly appear on the lower part of the face.

Fillers are also relatively non-invasive and don’t require a lot of appointment time or downtime!

How to Choose the Right Medspa for You

When you go to a medspa you of course, want your experience to be nothing short of magical. But how can you be sure you choose the right one?

Consider the treatments available

Are they able to complete the services you’re looking for? And do they have proof they’ve done them successfully before? Medspas usually offer plenty of different treatments such as hydrafacials, injectable dermal fillers, laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing, and much more!

Check to see if they offer what you personally need and then look into their experience. They should be able to show results on their website or social media pages and have plenty of great testimonials to back up their work.

Look for quality

Quality over quantity is definitely the motto when it comes to great medspas. More treatment options don’t always mean a better medspa. Sometimes a shorter list of services means the medspa has more expertise in certain areas and will be able to provide a better quality service because of it.

Find out what type of training the individuals have at the medspa and how many times they’ve performed the treatment so you can rest easy knowing they’re experienced!

Ask about an analysis

The medspa of your choice should offer a skin analysis so they can get a true understanding of your skin and what improvements can be made. From there, they’ll be able to come up with a treatment plan to help you achieve your goals.

Oftentimes a computerized system can be used to learn more about your skin.

Understand the involvement of the supervising physician

There could be medical professionals working at a medical spa, but they might not actually have quality supervision. See how involved the medspa supervising physician is so you can be sure you’re getting the highest quality services.

Learn about their products

You might want to get to know their products ahead of time as a way of seeing if the medical spa is the right choice for you. Those with high quality products and treatments are usually a good choice! You can always call ahead of time to find out why they chose a specific product and the benefits it provides.
