Questions to Ask Med Spas
If you’re looking for a new, go-to med spa, then you might be wondering how to decide on a med spa. We’d like to help, so we have several questions you can ask a med spa to help you with your decision. You can contact us at Illume Aesthetics or read on for five questions to ask med spas!
What does your med spa offer?
A med spa is like a cosmetic clinic and a day spa combined, but different med spas have different environments, staff, and services. For example, here at Illume Aesthetics, we have a relaxing, spa-like, eco-friendly environment. Other med spas may have more medical and sterile environments. It’s a good idea to find a med spa that has an environment you’ll feel welcome and happy in, so you should ask about a med spa’s environment. The staff matter too because they’ll be the ones serving you. You may want pleasant and professional staff who are happy to serve, so you should ask about staff. Ask about services as well!
What treatments are offered at your med spa?
Some med spas may have mostly basic services like basic hair removal, simple peels, fillers, etc. Other med spas like ours will have services like full body contouring, laser hair removal, microneedling, medical-grade peels, and bioidentical hormone therapy. Certain med spas may even offer services like the O-Shot for women and the P-Shot for men. If you need a special service like hormone therapy, you’ll want a med spa that provides it, so you definitely should ask about treatments and services.
What are the most popular medical spa treatments?
If you’re not quite sure what treatment or service you’ll need, or if you want to know which treatments are safest and best for most people, you may want to ask about the most popular treatments. Botox is an example of a really popular treatment, and it’s so popular because it’s considered very safe and has so many different applications. It’s also common for people to get treatments like facials, microneedling, and hair removal. These treatments are just as popular, and you might want to know which med spas offer them.
Do you have certified practitioners doing the treatments?
Med spas typically have a qualified medical professional who either performs or supervises the treatments. You’ll just want to make sure the provider has one of these professionals. A family nurse practitioner, like Jen Bullock FNP here at Illume Aesthetics, is a qualified medical professional for a med spa like ours. She and her staff are more than capable of serving you.
How do I choose which service is right for me?
The medical professional or another staff member should be able to help answer this question. A staff member might suggest a treatment like a facial if you want to cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish your skin, or the medical professional might suggest a treatment like microneedling if you want to treat wrinkles and scarring. Regardless, the person you speak with should be able to give you an idea of what service or services you’ll want!
Those were the five questions you should ask med spas in order to find a provider you like. We hope you find the questions helpful, and if you have questions for us here at Illume Aesthetics, we hope you’ll ask them! We’d be delighted to hear from you. You can call us today in Ashland, OR.
