Medical spas, also commonly referred to as med spas, are cosmetic facilities that offer medical-grade procedures. These clinics are operated under the supervision of a medical physician and are often staffed by nurses or physician assistants who help perform the procedures. These aesthetic care centers offer a wide variety of services, from skincare treatments like dermal fillers and Botox, to healthcare treatments like IV vitamin drip therapy and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
What is a Medical Spa?
A medical spa, often shortened to med spa, is an aesthetic clinic that focuses on providing rejuvenation and anti-aging procedures. Some medical spas go above and beyond cosmetic procedures and offer services that improve the overall health of patients, such as regenerative medicine treatments like PRP therapy and prolotherapy.
What is the difference between a Medical Spa and Day Spa?
While medical spas and day spas have a few similarities, they are very distinct.
- Focus on relaxation rather than rejuvenation or restoration
- Are not staffed by a medical professional
- Do not offer medical-grade services
- Focus on improving health with rejuvenation and restoration, rather than simply inducing relaxation
- Are staffed by at least one medical professional, although often include a physician, nurse or physician assistant
- Offer medical-grade services and minimally invasive procedures

What are the most popular Medical spa treatments?
Although medical spas offer a wide variety of cosmetic services, some are more popular than others. Among the most common med spa treatments are:
Dermal Fillers — Dermal fillers are a client favorite, offering profound aesthetic enhancements and anti-aging effects. The most common component of dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring compound found in almost every living organism. It helps to hydrate the skin and provide volume.
Botox — Among the most popular cosmetic treatments for decades, Botox is now a household name. It is composed of the botulinum toxin, which interferes with the signals sent between the nerves and muscles. This limits muscle movement and contractions that cause wrinkles and fine lines. The botulinum toxin is also sold under other names, including Dysport and Xeomin.
Microneedling — Quickly gaining attention over the past few years, microneedling uses ultra-thin needles to penetrate the skin which stimulates the healing process and the production of collagen and elastin.
