The Four W’s of a Med Spa
The Four W’s of a Med Spa-
A medical spa is a hybrid between a medical clinic and a day spa that operates under the supervision of a highly trained and specialized medical doctor. Medical spas can treat conditions on your face and body like brown spots, redness, fine lines and wrinkles, loss of volume and broken capillaries that cannot be treated at all or as effectively by a traditional esthetician.
Which brings us to the four important W’s you need to research before choosing your Med Spa.
#1- WHO –
Who will be administering the treatment?
Don’t be afraid to ask for credentials before approving your treatment.
If you are having a peel, microneedling, microdermabrasion, and some laser treatments such as Laser Hair Removal or IPL you should expect to see a Licensed Aesthetician or Licensed Cosmetologist with certification in each different procedure.
If you are having injections such as filler or Botox, or deeper laser treatments such as laser resurfacing, you should expect to see an R.N. or a P.A.
What is the plan for my skin?
What will the cost be?
What type of improvement should I expect to see?
What will the time frame for improvement be?
Where else has your provider worked and how long has she been in the field. Experience is essential in Medical Aesthetics?
When did the Med Spa purchase the equipment they are using for your treatment. The newer and more state of the art equipment the better your treatment outcome will be.
All that being said, don’t be afraid to ask questions because we love to answer them for you here at Heritage Med Spa.
