Medical spas, or med spas for short, have increased in popularity over the past few years, and with good reason. Med spas often have many features that make them well worth visiting. You can get body treatments, hair removal, and facials all under one roof and not have to worry about finding a good spa for each of these services. Med spas want you to leave their facilities feeling like a new person. Doing your homework and considering the cleanliness of the spa, the professional staff, and their credentials, can determine the right med spa for you and make it easier to decide if their services are worth it.
Here at NOVA DERM INSTITUTE we believe in providing what is best for our clients. Our goal is to treat skin with the highest standards. With waxing, facials, laser hair removal and many more services. We can provide our clients a full experience while helping them take great care of their skin. There are some elements that all spas should have regardless of what they do. If you’re ever unsure whether or not you’re in the right place, take note of the following:
Cleanliness: You might be concerned about the safety of your skin and whether this spa is up to standards. One way to judge this is by cleanliness. Take a look around. What do you see? If you see unclean medical equipment or trash laying around, this could be a sign that the employees do not value a clean workspace. You want to ensure the med spa is clean and has an atmosphere where you feel comfortable.
Timeliness: Med spas are busy places often booked months in advance. As the client, you should make sure the med spa values your time. Meaning you want to know that your appointment won’t be delayed or unexpectedly cancelled. They should inform you before booking the appointment if they cannot accommodate you at the date and time you are requesting and help you find a time that fits both your schedule and the med spas availability.
Professionalism: Whether you’re having laser hair removal or a customized facial, you want to feel like you’re in capable hands. Do your homework and make sure that the people working in the med spa have all the proper schooling and training. This will ensure they have a complete understanding of what you are looking for and which services and products will best serve your needs.
Privacy: Your privacy should be of the utmost importance to the med spa. Feeling confident that you can discuss your skin care needs without the fear that your personal information will be compromised should be a priority for any med spa.
Atmosphere: You’ll want to be assured that experts manage the med spa in a professional relaxing environment. You should be made to feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you walk-in to when you leave your appointment. It’s essential to having the best experience where you feel at ease throughout your service.
Hand-selected beauty products: Most med spas offer skin care products to ensure your skin stays looking its best long after your appointment. NOVA DERM INSTITUTE offers various beauty treatments and products to leave your skin feeling clean, renewed and refreshed. Products are hand picked for your specific needs. We only offer the highest quality skin care products, made under the strictest laws in the USA. It is crucial to examine the effects that these products have on your skin and communicate with your esthetician how they are working. You want to ensure that the products are as safe as possible for you, inside and out.
Staying safe at a medical spa:
Ask questions if you’re unsure about what is being used on you.
Do your homework.
If it’s new to you, don’t be afraid to look into it further before anything happens to your skin or body.
If you feel uncomfortable in any way, say something.
Have fun and enjoy your experience.
