With your typical spa, you’ll enjoy simple pampering and therapeutic services, like basic facials. With a medical spa, you’ll also be able to enjoy advanced therapeutic and medical services, like fillers and laser treatments.
These advanced, medical services require the expertise or supervision of a medical professional, like a doctor, plastic surgeon, or dermatologist. Because of this, you can expect a medspa to be a safe place to get aesthetic treatments done. But because typical spas aren’t staffed by medical professionals, you won’t be able to have cosmetic treatments done there.
