How does a medical spa differ from a day spa?
You deserve a day out at the spa for a relaxing treatment that makes you feel your absolute best. However, which spa is best for you and what you are looking for?
Day spas are considered a traditional spa that offers treatments to improve on your beauty, health and relaxation. A lot of the more common services available at day spas include massage therapy, pedicures, or manicures, aromatherapy, facials and mud wraps. You may notice a few day spas offering specialized treatments like hot stone massage and reflexology treatments, as these are aimed at the natural beauty and health of individuals.
Day spas are not under the supervision of a medical director like medical spas are, and the treatments available at day spas are not typically offered by medically trained professionals like nurses or nurse practitioners. Most staff that are employed by day spas are trained aestheticians, which requires much different training that that of a medical professional.
Medical spas specialize in offering treatments to help skin conditions and other treatments that focus on medical grade therapies including:
- Cosmetic Injections
