What Is a Medispa?
A medispa is a combination between a traditional spa and a medical clinic. What makes a medispa different is that you have access to all of the treatments you typically find in a traditional spa, such as facials, with the added bonus of being able to have more aesthetically driven procedures performed, such as dermal fillers or body contouring, and skin laser treatments. In addition, a medispa is the perfect blend of total body wellness and rejuvenation, usually offering clients a tranquil, relaxed atmosphere where they can spend the day pampering themselves.
What Are the Most Popular Medispa Services?
A medispa offers clients a wide variety of services, which are both cosmetic and aesthetic. Some of the most popular services include:
- Skin rejuvenation treatments like facials, microdermabrasion, exfoliation treatments, and chemical peels.
- Injectable dermal fillers or neurotoxins that smooth wrinkles and replace lost volume.
- Skin tightening treatments like Ultherapy or Thermage.
- Body contouring procedures that include radiofrequency and CoolSculpting.
- Hair restoration.
- Microblading or permanent makeup application.
Do You Tip at a Medispa?
Usually, clients do not need to tip at a medispa. However, in some cases, it might be a good idea to ask the front desk receptionist about their tipping policies. Some clients may want to tip their estheticians who performed their facial, microblading, or hair removal because they are happy with the results. Estheticians are also the ones who perform more superficial skin treatments, such as dermabrasion, dermaplaning, and massages.
It is not customary to tip doctors or nurses who perform injections, body sculpting procedures, or medically driven skin rejuvenation treatments like lasering or body contouring.
What Makes a Medispa Different?
What makes a medispa different is the variety of treatments and procedures available under one roof. Instead of having to go to a dermatologist or plastic surgeon’s office for injectables, a medispa has licensed medical professionals onsite. You can have all of your favorite beauty treatments done under one roof. Every state does have its own definition of a medispa, in addition to the types of procedures that need to be performed by a licensed medical professional.
