Beauty may be only skin deep, but healthy skin is where beauty begins. At our Marietta, GA, med spa, our skincare specialists focus on nurturing your skin to create a fresh, clear, and youthful appearance. Our med spa offers medically approved skincare treatments and services within the pampering and luxurious environment of a day spa. Debating whether to go to a med spa vs. a day spa, or wondering what the difference actually is? Read on to find out!
What Sets a Med Spa Apart?
When someone talks about a “spa day,” the image you probably picture is relaxing while getting a mani-pedi. A medical spa, however, offers treatments that go well beyond getting your nails done. Do you know the difference between a spa and a medical spa?
A day spa may not have any medical professionals on site to oversee or perform treatments. For services that involve lasers or that break the skin (such as injectables), med spas have a clear advantage in terms of training and medical expertise.
We operate our medical spa under the strict supervision of a licensed healthcare professional who is on site at all times. Our plastic surgeons and licensed medical esthetician are always available to assist or answer any of your questions.
The advanced technology and state-of-the-art treatments also set med spas apart from day spas. We use lasers and intense pulsed light for hair removal hair removal, vascular therapy, and skin tightening at our med spa in Marietta.
Our highly trained estheticians also customize skincare regimes for each client’s specific needs with medical grade skin care products. These aren’t the type of products someone can pick up at department stores—they are usually only available through medical providers and must be backed by clinical research.
What Does Our Med Spa Offer?
Our med spa features an extensive menu of face and body treatments that can be performed on both men and women of all skin types. We also offer Coolsculpting®, a non-invasive body contouring procedure that is an excellent liposuction alternative. CoolSculpting uses carefully controlled, targeted cooling to destroy fat cells where stubborn fat pockets resist diet and exercise.
What other kinds of treatments can you get at our med spa? ThermiVA™ is an increasingly popular procedure for women who may have lost sensitivity in their vaginas after childbirth. It’s also a solution for women who experience urine leaks when they cough, sneeze or exercise. ThermiVa uses heat to stimulate collagen production and new cell growth to tighten the vagina.
