A Day at the Spa Is Great Stress Relief

Like many people today, I live a very stressful life and when I am not at work, I am always busy caring for my two young children. One day, I decided to get a massage at a local spa to ease my sore, aching muscles. Once I entered the salon, I realized they had a great half-day package deal that also included a manicure, pedicure, and a body wrap. I decided to go for the package and I found the experience very relaxing. My stress virtually melted away and I now take time to visit the spa every month to enjoy the package. I am eager to share my experiences with salons and spas with others who want to learn more about what they have to offer on my new blog!

Planning To Go To A Spa? Why A Medical Spa May Be A Better Choice


If you are planning to go to a spa to rejuvenate your skin, you should consider a medical spa. This spa offers nonsurgical options just like a regular spa but there are many differences. Keep reading to learn more about this so you can decide if a medical spa will be the best choice. 

Licensed Physician

The main difference between a regular spa and a medical spa is a licensed physician is on staff, which is generally a plastic surgeon. Along with this, an aesthetic nurse is on staff. Both these professionals will ensure the procedures are done correctly so you will be happy with the results. This is also beneficial because if something goes wrong you will have a doctor there. Also, the doctor can suggest surgical options in some cases that you may not be aware of. For example, if you ask for a certain treatment a surgical treatment may be better for you. 

If the aesthetic nurse performs the procedure for you, they will be under the supervision of the medical doctor to ensure there are no problems during the procedure. 

Treatments Available

There are many treatments that can be done at a medical spa. A common treatment is Botox injections, which are used to remove wrinkles from areas of your face. The doctor can also choose dermal fillers which are also injected into wrinkles to make them diminish. If you have hair where you do not want it, such as on your lip, chin, and other areas, the doctor or nurse can perform laser hair removal. They can also help remove tattoos from your body.

Microdermabrasion treatment is also available, which is a procedure that sands away the outer layer of your skin. Your skin will then rejuvenate giving you a much brighter complexion. Another treatment offered is laser skin resurfacing, which is when a laser is used over the skin to remove wrinkles, age spots, and much more. 

Some medical spas do not offer all treatments, or some may offer even more. This will generally depend on the size of the medical spa.  

Help You Choose Beauty Products

The plastic surgeon or nurse can help you choose the best beauty products for you to use. This could be a daily and night moisturizer, a wrinkle treatment, and more. When you visit a beauty store there are so many products that it can become confusing. Some products are also very expensive. This does not mean they work better in many cases. You can also find a variety of these products online.

If you need something stronger, the plastic surgeon can prescribe a beauty product for you. For example, you may need a stronger wrinkle cream that you cannot purchase on the shelf. 

Talk with a plastic surgeon or another professional at a medical spa to learn much more about what they can offer you.
