What To Look for In a Quality Med Spa

Tina West March 28, 2019 0 comments 0

As demand for non-surgical cosmetic procedures has skyrocketed, so has the number of med spas. So, how do patients know which med spas to trust with their aesthetic needs and those to avoid?

Continue reading for 5 things to look for in a quality med spa.

1. Treatments Offered

Med spas can provide a variety of non-surgical treatments like Botox, fillers, body contouring, non-invasive fat removal, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels.

With that being said, it’s important to find a med spa that has a carefully-selected list of services and uses the latest technology. This shows that the supervising physician and aesthetic professionals thoroughly evaluate each procedure they offer for efficacy, safety, and patient satisfaction.

It also demonstrates a dedication to performing these specific treatments with a high-level of proficiency, rather than presenting a long list of services without extensive experience or mastery.

2. Qualifications and Involvement of Supervising Physician

When looking for a quality med spa, there are several questions that you should ask. These include:

  • The training, education, and credentials of the supervising physician. He or she should be a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon, who is actively and reliably involved in daily operations and treatment planning.
  • You should also inquire if the physician or another qualified aesthetic professional will be performing your treatment. If the physician will not be doing your treatment, ensure that he or she will be onsite and available if needed. Also, ask about the qualifications and experience of the provider that will be responsible for your care.

3. Custom Skin Analysis

In order to gain a thorough understanding of your skin, many med spas perform a custom skin analysis, with computerized imaging. The results of this evaluation can then be used to develop a personalized treatment plan.

It’s also important to undergo analysis after your procedure for an objective measure of your progress.

4. Choice of Skincare Products

In addition to having a tailored treatment menu, a quality med spa should also carry strategically-selected skin care products. Their inclusion of each item should be based on client feedback and/or personal experience, instead of just selling popular products or those for which they receive a bulk discount.

5. Client Programs

Client loyalty programs and membership services can also boost the appeal and affordability of quality med spa services. Inquire about these offerings at your initial consultation.
