What is a Med Spa?
A “medical spa,” otherwise known as a med spa or medi-spa, is a clinic that is run by medical professionals, is overseen by a medical doctor (a dermatologist or plastic surgeon), and offers medical treatments, often alongside more traditional spa treatments, such as massages and facials. The types of treatments and who administers those treatments is what differentiates a med spa from a regular day spa.
Med spas offer cosmetic medical procedures that are often administered by a licensed physician, a certified physician assistant, or nurse practitioner and other trained medical professionals. Medical treatments are generally defined as procedures that affect the living tissue of the body. Cosmetic treatments are those that are designed the enhance the physical appearance of certain areas of the body. Because these treatments are not required for the physical well-being of the patient, they are elective. A treatment that affects the living tissue of the body and is performed electively are considered cosmetic medical treatments. These are the types of treatments commonly offered at med spas.
What treatments are offered at med spas?
The treatments and procedures that are offered at med spas across the country vary, but they are generally focused on non-invasive (i.e. non-surgical) dermatological and plastic surgery treatments. These include injectables, such as Botox®, dermal fillers, such as Juvederm®, laser treatments for hair removal, skin rejuvenation using microdermabrasion or photofacial pulsed light (IPL), cellulite and skin tightening treatments, spider vein removal, and chemical peels, among many others. Not every med spa will offer all of these treatment options, and others will offer many more than this. Additionally, while many med spas will offer traditional, non-medical spa treatments, others will be more clinical in nature. What kind of med spa you choose will be determined by your specific needs and what kind of atmosphere you feel most comfortable in.
