Medical spas, also called medi-spas or med spas, are a kind of a hybrid between the traditional day spa and a medical clinic. At first glance, they may seem similar, especially if the menu of services appears similar. However, there is a very important difference between a day spa and a medispa. A medical spa is a hybrid between a medical clinic and a day spa that operates under the supervision of a highly trained and specialized medical doctor. Medical spas can treat conditions on your face and body like brown spots, redness, fine lines and wrinkles, loss of volume and broken capillaries that cannot be treated at all or as effectively by a traditional esthetician.
Medical spas strive to blend the best of two worlds—a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise typically only found at a doctor’s office.
As a medical spa, Skin Tight is able to offer more specialized treatments that are typically only found at a dermatology or plastic surgery clinic. Some of the offerings include light and laser treatments, injectables like Juvederm, Restalyne, and Botox, as well as chemical peels. Medical spas offer procedures to treat breakouts, lighten post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, reduce scarring, and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
