A med spa or medical spa combines the services you would receive at a day spa and a medical clinic. While a medical spa can offer relaxation and pampering in a serene atmosphere, along with this, there will be a focus on treating different types of skin problems, as well as other conditions. What also sets our med spa apart from a day spa is that a licensed physician will be in charge.
Med spas can offer many of the same treatments that day spas do, such as facials, but along with this, other services will also be provided, including:
- BOTOX® injections — a common treatment for wrinkles. After just a few days, the full effects begin to show.
- Dermal fillers — also used for treating wrinkles, but whereas BOTOX® relaxes the facial muscles, dermal fillers smoothen out the wrinkles by adding volume to the face.
- Peels — medical peels use acid to remove the top layers of skin, which rejuvenates the skin and brings out the unblemished and healthy skin underneath. Peels can be used to treat many skin conditions, such as wrinkles and discoloration. While some day spas can offer peels, the range and strength of peels offered at a med spa will be more.
- Microdermabrasion — this procedure has become very popular for rejuvenating the skin. It basically exfoliates the skin in a gentle yet effective way. The treatment is very effective for many different skin conditions.
Medical spas can offer a broader range of services than day spas because they are staffed and run by medical professionals. The staff can also give advice on which treatments would be best for certain ailments. Med spas also offer technology-based treatments using a variety of medical tests that can show which treatments are best for an individual.
If you are looking for some extra help beyond the usual beauty spa treatments but don’t want to go to a full-blown medical clinic, Carolinas Eye Center & Med Spa could be a great option for you. Medical spas have become more and more popular in recent years because people are getting results from their treatments that treat skin issues such as brown spots, body hair, tattoos and much more.
