Have you heard about medical spas? Not sure how they’re different from traditional spas you’ve been going to for your whole life? You’ve come to the right place!

A medical spa combines the relaxation and wellness of a day spa, with the clinical expertise of a medical facility. A great med spa provides treatments to anyone wishing to better their health and appearance.

Celebrity Med Spa is Beaverton’s premier luxury medical spa. Read on to see answers to common questions we hear regarding what happens at our facility and other medical spas.

What are the differences between a medical spa and a day spa?

Unlike traditional day spas, which focus their efforts on nourishing the body to make you feel better, medical spas focus on medical procedures to achieve your health and beauty goals. Using high-tech equipment and cutting edge technology, medical spas achieve results previously only thought to be found through more extensive procedures.

Above all else, the goal of a medical spa is to achieve concrete results you can actually see, not just feel. While traditional spas will make you feel great for the day, medical spas set you up to feel great long term.

Maybe the biggest difference? Medical spas by law must be overseen by real doctors with medical degrees. They even administer some treatments and are there to make sure every single procedure offered by the medical spa is safe.

This level of medical expertise is why we’re able to offer the results we do. All treatments are based on science and centered around achieving results for the patient. 

This level of expertise is not present at a traditional day spa and can only be achieved at a med spa.

What’s it like at a medical spa?

When you first walk into a med spa, you probably won’t notice much of a difference between the facility and what you’ll see at a day spa. Generally, a med spa will have a relaxing atmosphere and be centered around making you feel comfortable during your appointment. 

The team at the medical spa will be there to answer questions you have and make sure you feel comfortable throughout. 

What happens at an appointment?

If this is your first visit to a medical spa, we recommend scheduling a free consultation.  

At your free consultation, you’ll meet with a specialist to go over what your goals are for your medical spa experience. You’ll discuss past medical issues, treatments you’ve experienced previously, and any treatments you’re interested in.

You’ll then discuss different treatment options with your specialist to determine what’s exactly right to achieve the results you’re looking for. You’ll also talk about when you can expect to see results.

For some patients, this could mean just a single type of treatment. For others, this could be a cocktail of treatments. Every person is different and we tailor our recommendations based on the individual and what they’re trying to accomplish. 

Finally, you’ll discuss financing options and have an opportunity to get your questions answered.

What issues do patients go to medical spas to solve?

People go to medical spas for all types of reasons, though they generally revolve around reversing the signs of aging and correcting aesthetic imperfections. 

These treatments focus on helping you feel great about your appearance. When you feel great about how you look, you’ll feel better about yourself. This not only improves your physical health but your mental health, too.

Some of the most common ailments medical spas treat include…

Signs of aging 

As you age, it’s completely natural to show some signs of years past. Medical spas can help reduce these effects and make you feel like your former self by minimizing wrinkles and damaged skin.

Effective treatments for reversing the signs of aging include:

Unwanted hair 

No matter your age, the hair on unwanted parts of your body can feel embarrassing and prevent you from feeling like yourself. Medical spas have a number of treatments to safely and effectively remove hair where you don’t want it.

Most medical spas offer laser hair removal, an innovative and gentle procedure leaving your skin looking and feeling amazing. 

Stubborn cellulite 

For many, cellulite is a fact of life and can make wearing the clothes you want hard to do. Even weight loss plans and exercise can be useless in the fight against it. Med spas can help get rid of pesky cellulite with multiple treatments depending on your exact goal.

Some great non-invasive treatments for removing cellulite include:

Damaged skin

For those suffering from acne, skin diseases, and other types of damaged skin, it can seem like there is no cure. Many try lotion after lotion and take-home treatment after take-home treatment to solve their woes to no avail. Med spas have a number of treatments to help you have the bright, beautiful skin you’ve always wanted.

Some treatments to heal your skin and help it glow include:

Should I go to a medical spa?

Yes! Medical spas are a safe, non-invasive way to improve how you look and feel without the need for expensive plastic surgery or more advanced operations. 

While the exact answer will be different for every patient, medical spas are a great way to improve how you feel about your appearance and help you feel like the best version of yourself.
