facts about medical day spasThese days, it seems that every product or business is making a promise that can’t be kept. Some businesses aren’t able to provide all of the benefits promised, such as a traditional day spa. Traditional day spas tend to focus on beauty and only make health claims, while a medical day spa is able to back up its claims with science. Even so, the differences between a traditional day spa and medical day spa may not always be clear.

Regular spas have little to do with long-term health and rejuvenation

While a regular spa may have some benefits, the results tend to be superficial and short-term. Because regular spas only offer surface treatments, there are no long-term health benefits for your skin. A regular spa typically employs cosmetologists, whose training focuses on makeup, hairstyling, and minor facial treatments. There may be little to no oversight at a regular spa, and advanced therapies and treatments may not be available.


On the other hand, a medical day spa focuses on long-term wellness, rejuvenation, and health-based beauty. A medical day spa is staffed by licensed, highly-trained aestheticians who work under the supervision of a physician or group of physicians. Aestheticians at medical day spas typically have certifications and training in multiple advanced treatments, and offer a long-term approach to improving the health of your skin and underlying structures. A medical day spa focuses on providing advanced treatments to support your overall health and wellness, while also offering numerous beauty benefits in a clinically safe spa-like environment.

Choosing a medical spa

When it comes to choosing a medical spa, there are a number of factors to consider. First and foremost, does the spa appear clean? Is it overseen by a medical staff of at least one physician, and do aestheticians and other staff pursue continuing education opportunities in addition to their initial licensure? The facility should offer a complimentary consultation during which you are able to discuss your goals in depth with your aesthetician. You should also feel understood and respected by your aesthetician, and given plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Your aesthetician should also be able to explain to you how they keep equipment, tools, and the environment clean and safe between patients and during your treatment.
