Are you debating whether to book MedSpa appointments vs. a typical day spa? In most cases, a MedSpa is the way to go. Are you considering invasive or surgical procedures to enhance your looks? Again, a MedSpa should be your first stop!
MedSpas are the juncture between relaxing spa services and clinical treatments offered by medical professionals. However, unlike many of the go-to cosmetic procedures, which are invasive in nature, MedSpa treatments are no-risk and still provide optimal results.
6 Benefits of Visiting a MedSpa
Here are six benefits of choosing a Medical Spa over a traditional day spa.
1. There’s a Board Certified Physician in Charge
The “Med” in MedSpa is short for “Medical,” and this is one of the primary differences that set us apart from the everyday “spa.” While we do have a team of licensed estheticians performing the majority of the treatments, a MedSpa should also include board-certified dermatologists. This allows us to offer services and insurance billing options that aren’t available otherwise.
Dermatologists are medical doctors that specialize in skincare. They can provide expert consults and recommendations to help you look your very best without risking your health. We are only interested in non- to very minimally invasive procedures that require the most minor amounts of downtime – if any.
NOTE: Some spas use the term MedSpa when there’s no Med in the picture. We recommend reading the About Us page of any spa you’re considering so you can verify the owner and employee credentials. For example, Balance MedSpa is owned and operated by a board-certified dermatologist, and we only hire the most highly qualified and experienced estheticians.
2. Your Insurance May Cover a Portion of the Services
Another benefit of dermatologist-governed treatments is our ability to work with insurance providers or send you the necessary documentation to cover certain portions of your treatment costs.
Procedures deemed “medically necessary” (the golden phrase for insurance billing) vary. However, some patients find they can obtain reimbursement for all or a portion of certain services, such as:
- Acne and skincare management
- Therapeutic Botox
- The removal or treatment of lesions (sun damage), moles, warts, etc.
- Weight loss management
- Laser vein ablation/ sclerotherapy
- And more
Depending on which medically necessary treatments are integrated into your service packages, this can significantly reduce out-of-pocket costs.
3. Reduced Risk in the Short and Long-Term
We appreciate that cosmetic surgery is considered “routine” these days. However, we believe it’s never “routine” to anesthetize a person and cut them open to perform surgery. That is always a delicate business – one that compromises overall well-being. Risks should always be considered a true potential, rather than being waved off as no big deal.
Every day we meet with clients who regret their cosmetic surgery history as they’re being treated for scarring, skin stretched too tight, or a face that no longer feels like their own. And, with the increasing body of evidence linking surgical anesthesia and both short- and long-term cognitive decline, we believe MedSPas should always be the first stop for anyone who wants to look younger, enhance their features, or take advantage of body sculpting services.
MedSpas offer clinically-proven methods to achieve similar goals to many surgical cosmetic procedures without any of the short or long-term risks.
4. Feel Confident in Your Own Skin
Confidence is not about bravado or being a show-off. True confidence starts from within and is about knowing who you are, accepting where you’re at, and feeling completely comfortable in your own skin. It’s impossible to look 29 forever, but it is absolutely possible to look like the very best version of yourself, no matter what decade you’re in.
MedSpa services are 100% tailored to make you look and feel your very best. Our clients are continually amazed at how different they feel after a single treatment – not to mention the completion of a treatment series. The “real” them is finally revealed in its best light, which helps them to step out into the world with a new energy and vibrance.
5. Take Years Off of Your Life Inside and Out
Our treatments are performed on the exterior of the body, but their effects take years off your life inside and out. For example:
Our menu of anti-aging treatments, like Microneedling, Pellevue, and E-Matrix, interact with the skin’s tissue rejuvenation processes, stimulating collagen growth and inspiring new tissue generation so you look years younger than your age. We can also use Botox and other fillers to gently plump and restore skin that has become sunken, flat, or lined by age for long-lasting effects.
Signature Facials and Skin Treatments
Regular visits for signature facials and customized skin treatments mean your skin has access to deep exfoliation, extractions, and stimulation that keep it looking fresh and glowing. Depending on your age, skin type, and goals, we also infuse the skin with serums and boosters that even skin tone and texture while keeping the skin moist and supple.
Body sculpting services can both eliminate fat cells and smooth skin texture, so problem areas look slimmer, better-shaped, and smoother than they have in years. Only MedSpas have the license to use FDA-approved body sculpting tools, like the UltraShape Power, which can reduce fat by 32% with zero downtime required.
After that, the Vela Shape III reduces and eliminates any ripples or dimples from cellulite. Finally, after you’ve completed your series of three to six body sculpting sessions, you’ll revel in the slimmer, smoother, more contoured you; it’s like going back in time.
Customized Health and Beauty Consultations
Once we’ve familiarized ourselves with your skin type, problem areas, and long-term goals, our estheticians can provide personal health and beauty recommendations that go beyond the spa. In addition, we have a wide range of dermatologist-specific skincare and beauty products you can’t find anywhere but at licensed MedSpas.
Together, we’ll create a daily skincare routine that helps you feel taken care of and fully supported daily.
6. Inspiration to Make Healthy Lifestyle Choices
Healthy, positive lifestyle choices form the foundation of youth and vitality. Our clients tell us over and over again how the way they feel after benefitting from our clinical spa services inspires them to eat well, re-dedicate themselves to a moderate exercise routine, and to make lifestyle choices that maintain their renewed sense of confidence in themselves.
Every member of our team is proud of their love of science and we are always ready to share the latest scientific research on diet and lifestyle practices that support and preserve our anti-aging services.
