What’s the Difference Between a Medical Spa and a Day Spa?

There’s one big difference between medical spas and day spas - medical spas give results! Day spas are great and offer many restorative and relaxing treatments with the end goal of pampering. However, medical spas like ours have a medical doctor overseeing everything. We have more effective products with stronger active ingredients, treatments with lasers and injectables, deeper levels of exfoliation, and multiple forms of exfoliation in a single treatment. These are all things that you cannot find at a day spa.

At first glance, med spas and day spas seem similar, especially since the menu of services looks similar. However a med spa is actually a hybrid between a medical clinic and a day spa, and operates under the supervision of a highly trained and specialized medical doctor. Medical spas can treat skin conditions such as brown spots, redness, fine lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, and broken capillaries that cannot be treated at all or as effectively by a traditional day spa.

Today, most medical spas have a comparable atmosphere to a day spa, so that the patients leave relaxed and fulfilled.
