Our skin is the largest organ that protects us from the elements, acts as a barrier and houses organs. But due to our busy lives, we often forget to take care of it and end up ignoring the matter. A medical spa can offer rejuvenating therapies to keep the skin youthful and fresh. It offers many of the same treatments as a regular spa, along with nonsurgical medical aesthetics services with medical supervision.
If you’re concerned with fine lines, deep wrinkles and other skin problems, you should think of calling Redwood Medi Spa & Wellness Centre. We have been awarded the Consumer’s Choice by Canadian Spa & Wellness Industry Association and Spa Inc. bi-lingual Magazine. How Medical Spas Differ from Traditional Ones The main difference between traditional and medical spas is the types of treatments offered. Procedures that can’t be performed at the former can be conducted at the latter. Medi spas must be affiliated with, run or overseen by a medical doctor. They understand that every person is unique and has various needs in skincare according to their lifestyle and skin type. Who Performs the Treatments? The person who supervises a medical spa is in charge of all the medical procedures. Medical Estheticians, who are specialized in the skincare, handle the medical aesthetic services, such as microdermabrasion, acne treatment facials, chemical peels, IPL photofacial, laser skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, skin tightening and body contouring treatments. What Does a Medical Spa Offer? They are a hybrid between a medical clinic and a traditional day spa. They try to blend the best of both worlds – a comfortable experience with the procedures commonly found at a doctor’s office. Regular visits to a medi-spa can help you feel and look your best. Some of the potential benefits are:
