What is a Medical Spa?

Visiting a beauty or medical spa once in a while for relaxation and beauty treatments can make you look youthful and healthy. However, there is a difference between the two spas. A beauty spa is a facility that primarily focuses on providing personal care, relaxation, and non-invasive beauty treatments such as facial cleansing and exfoliation. Typically, a beauty spa offers massages, facials targeting the outer layers of the skin, eyelash extensions, body wraps, manicures, waxing and cosmetic products.

On the other hand, a medical spa focuses on improving the outer appearance by providing medical-grade aesthetic procedures in a cool, relaxing environment. This includes advanced medical spa facial treatments and aesthetics, aimed at not just improving but also rejuvenating your appearance and health.The procedures also repair your skin, hair and improve metabolic processes.
