Most individuals will visit a medi-spa for a spa treatment like a massage as well as a clinical treatment such as a facial fillers or laser treatments.

One aspect that truly stands out with a medical spa is the devotion to overall wellness.

There are several services that are provided through the medi spa. Many of these spas allow the client to choose a package that will help them meet their goal. 

As opposed to a typical day spa, medi spa is overseen by medical doctors and/or board-certified plastic surgeons. The staff of these facilities are properly trained in the methods of chemical peels and laser technology. These clinics will also have several beauticians, masseuses, and experts on hand to provide the fullest range of services. While every medical spa is going to offer various services, these are some of the most common:

Laser Treatments

There are multiple forms of laser treatment available. most of which involve several treatments over a period of time. Some of the most popular choices include skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, and spider vein removal. When deciding upon one of these services, consider the type of equipment and laser that will be used.

Chemical Peels

These types of facials will vary in intensity. The majority of clients tend to choose medium peels which burn the topmost layer of the skin which helps to reveal the revitalized cells underneath. These peels are helpful to reduce the appearance of sun damage, age spots, and acne. One can expect a recovery time of up to a week, so it is best to schedule some time off from work.

Microdermabrasion and Facials

One of the most popular treatments at medi-spas across the country is the microdermabrasion, which is a far less intense procedure. The microdermabrasion uses a medical want that has an abrasive disc attached to the end. The disc rubs against the skin which helps to loosen and remove the dead skin cells, leaving a beautiful new glow. After several uses, the microdermabrasion process can help to reach underlying problems such as severe acne scarring or sun damage.


Botox and Facial Fillers

These medical procedures help to eliminate serious signs of aging such as fine line, wrinkles, and hollow areas. Facial fillers are designed to plump up lines and sunken areas in and around the cheeks and eyes. There are several techniques that can be used, most will only have temporary effects that last up to six months.
