A day at the spa can mean many different things, so let’s take a look at some of the differences between medical spas and day spas. Spas are a great place to decrease your stress level, relieve painful, aching muscles, make lifestyle changes, and boost self-esteem. You will leave a spa probably feeling better than you have in years, but there are several differences between medical and day spas, so let’s explore those differences to help you determine which one would be best for your individual needs.

Medical Spas

Medical spas like ReDerm MD Medical Spa, serving Denver and surrounding communities is a facility that has physicians who perform or supervise a huge variety of treatments. The treatments may be performed by trained aestheticians, medical assistants or nurses. There are many medical spa treatments that do not require a physician to perform the procedure or to even be present for the procedure.

The goal of a medical spa is to provide long-term solutions to a number of medical problems associated with fat, cellulite, muscles issues, unwanted hair, unwanted capillaries (as in varicose veins), pigment issues, acne and even wrinkles due to sun exposure or the aging process. Often times, advanced medical technology is necessary to perform procedures you would have done at a medical spa such as ReDerm MD Medical Spa in Denver.

The highly trained medical professionals at medical spas may perform any or all of the following:

  • Acupuncture
  • Massages
  • Diet guidance/nutritional information
  • Permanent hair removal
  • Liposuction
  • Facial fillers
  • Laser skin therapy
  • Phototherapy of the face

Day Spas

If you want a luxurious experience, a day spa is where you want to—not a medical spa. Most day spas are elegant, relaxing places where men and women go to be pampered. You will often hear women and men talk about a “day at the spa,” where they will spend hours being worked on from head to toe. Most day spas do not require their personnel to be medically licensed in their field, except for massage therapists. Day spas provide temporary fixes to common problems like stress, muscle tightness and aches and leave guests feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the world.

Typical day spa services include:

  • Facials
  • Seaweed wraps
  • Mask application
  • Massage
  • Teeth whitening
  • Skin filler injections
  • Hair removal
  • Eyelash enhancement
  • Make-up application
  • Pedicures/manicures
  • Light therapy
  • Skin rejuvenation
