Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

Trying To Choose A Spa? Benefits Of Choosing A Medical Spa

by Michelle Austin

If you are planning to go to a spa, you should consider going to a medical spa.  Below is information on what this is, as well as some benefits they can offer you. 

Medical Spa

A medical spa provides you with more than a traditional spa. Instead of having only spa technicians, a medical spa is run by a licensed physician. You can receive cosmetic medical treatments at this spa that you cannot get at a traditional spa.

You may find doctors, as well as nurses, that are experienced in treating cosmetic medical issues. You can have many more treatments done at a medical spa and having a doctor there will ensure the treatment is done properly.

Medical Spa Benefits

A medical spa offers a variety of medical treatments, such as laser hair removal and treatment for varicose and spider veins. You can also have chemical peels done at a medical spa, and laser skin rejuvenation. Most of these services require little or no downtime. When you are finished, you can then relax with a massage, or get a facial done, depending on the treatment you had. 

Medical spas are also much more relaxing when compared to a doctor's office. A doctor's office can be busy and the waiting room full of people. This environment can affect your mood. A medical spa gives you an area to sit and relax in a much quieter environment. You will have comfortable chairs or a couch to sit on and may be offered a refreshing drink. This is especially helpful if you are feeling nervous about a treatment you are getting. Being able to relax can help ease this stress. 

Medical spas offer a variety of anti-aging treatments. For example, a doctor can use Botox to help with wrinkles, as well as fillers and Microneedling. The doctor can also help you choose what would work best for you for the type of wrinkles you have. A traditional spa would likely not know this information. The doctor can prescribe you an anti-aging cream to use at home to help prevent wrinkles from appearing. 

A medical spa can help you with a variety of health conditions as well. For example, Botox is used to treat different health conditions, such as eyelid spasms and chronic migraines. If the med spa has no treatments to help you with the type of health condition you have, the doctor at the spa can recommend a good doctor in the area.
