What is a Medical Spa?

What Do Medical Spa Treatments Accomplish?
Medical spa treatments can enhance the condition of your skin and reduce the appearance of such common skin imperfections as acne, scars, sun spots, moles, creases, fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and uneven skin tone, producing dramatic visible results that require little expense and downtime.
How Should I Prepare for Medical Spa Treatments?
Typically, there is no preparation required for a medical spa treatment, though you should inform the doctor in advance if you’ve had recent dermal filler injections or if you take any medication. It is also advisable to avoid excessive sun exposure for a few days prior to your treatment, and plan to avoid direct sun exposure afterwards as well. You will also need to make sure you have a good sunscreen on hand. If you have any infection or irritation in the treatment area, it’s best to postpone treatment until that condition subsides. Let our staff know if you have a history of fever blisters, as this is important when we are treating the perioral area.
What Can I Expect After a Med Spa Treatment?
Most treatments require no downtime. You will be able to resume normal activities immediately or within a few hours of treatment. The most important thing to remember is to avoid unprotected sun exposure for several weeks after a medical spa treatment, and use daily sun protection with SPF 30 or higher every time you go out. Our staff will provide detailed post-treatment care instructions to help you get the most from your treatment and optimize the outcome.
