What to Consider Before Going to a Medspa

Time marches on, and its effects are usually visible. You know that regular skincare regimens and preventive skin care are a great start, but it’s not quite enough to keep every wrinkle and fine line at bay. Maybe a visit to a local medspa will get you the results you want, but how can you be sure that you’ll be happy with your results?

Medspas are an excellent option for both men and women looking for a bit of assistance with the aging process’s effects on their appearance. Combining the newest medical technologies with traditional beauty treatments can significantly improve appearances for many people. Still, there are some things you should know before visiting your local medspa.

What Services are Offered

When it comes to regenerative beauty care, some services are more effective than others. Look for a medical spa that offers a comprehensive range of treatments, so you’ll have options and won’t be reliant on whatever treatment is being pushed that week. 

You may want to begin with less invasive, gentler treatments first, like dermaplaning facials. You can always move on to other more intensive treatments (like microdermabrasion, vampire facials, or microneedling procedures) later on. The bottom line is that having more options means you and your aesthetician can develop a treatment plan that’s perfect for your needs.

Check Their Credentials

Your skin is your most precious organ. You don’t want it being treated by anyone who is not skilled, so feel free to ask about the credentials of your aesthetician. How long have they been practicing? Where did they train? Reputable estheticians will always be happy to give their credentials and come highly referred.

It’s also a good idea to find out about the clinic’s supervising physician. Do they have a background in beauty and skincare? Ideally, medical directors or coordinators should have a history in an aesthetics-related field to understand the clients’ needs better.

How Many Treatments You Will Need

Most medspa treatments aren’t standalone treatments. You’ll likely need to repeat the process or continue it regularly. Knowing how many treatments you can expect to undergo will allow you to plan accordingly. 

Check to see if the medspa offers discounts on repeat treatments. Many offer a discounted rate when you prepay for several treatments at one time. These discounts can help offset the cost of more expensive procedures, and scheduling multiple treatments at once can help ensure that you don’t miss a follow-up visit.

Which Beauty Products They Use

A quality medspa will only use the highest quality products in their treatments. The products that they use and sell should be carefully selected to meet each client’s individual needs. 

Don’t be surprised if you don’t see well-known brands on display. A good medspa will hand-select products based on their effectiveness, feedback from their clients, and the aestheticians’ own experience with the products. 

You may find that they only offer a limited number of products. Reputable medical spas value quality over quantity when it comes to their products and services, so often, less is more.


A visit to a medspa shouldn’t be stressful or inconvenient. While you may want to avoid overly commercialized, franchise-style medspas, visiting a clinic with more than one office can be a convenient option for you. 

Depending on your schedule and lifestyle, you might find it easier to visit more than one location for future visits. Or, you could find that certain areas are busier and more challenging to get access to. Having more than one office to choose from gives you options, so you can go where and when it’s convenient for you.

Level of Personalization

When choosing a medspa, it’s essential to look at how the staff plans your treatments. Each client’s needs should be assessed individually to figure out the best course of treatment. Your skin is unique and should be treated carefully, which means it needs individualized attention.

Look for staff who ask lots of questions about your lifestyle, your concerns, and your goals for your treatment. They should take the time to craft a plan that meets those goals, which also fits your budget. And ultimately, the staff should make you feel comfortable about taking care of your skin and beauty needs.
