What is a Med Spa?
A Med Spa service is a non-surgical cosmetic (or hair removal) service performed under the supervision of a licensed medical doctor. Medical spa services comply with HIPAA regulations, so your information is kept confidential. Medical spa services require more training in technique and safety than regular spa services, and can often be performed by a doctor, physician assistant, or a licensed aesthetician.
Medspa treatments cover a wide range of services, including skin care product recommendations, Botox, dermal fillers, laser hair removal, Broadband Light therapy (BBL/IPL), and micro laser peels. Many medspas carry medical-grade skin care products that are not available anywhere but in select doctor’s offices. These products are stronger, more concentrated, and more effective than your usual drugstore or makeup counter skin care products.
