Medical Spa Q & A

What is a medical spa?

A medical spa uses medical techniques that are only authorized for certified clinicians, to complement and enhance a range of spa treatments. A medical spa must operate under the supervision of a qualified physician like Dr. Walker.

The idea is that you receive the benefits of relaxing and therapeutic spa treatments with the bonus of medical expertise and clinical procedures. For example, you can get a medical grade skin care cream at a medical spa that offers additional benefits over creams that are available at a day spa.

What treatments do medical spas offer?

Medical spas offer a wide range of treatments, some of which are the same as those you find in a day spa, while others combine spa and medical treatments. Typical treatments include:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Hair removal
  • Injectables such as Botox® and Xeomin®
  • Chemical peels
  • Acne treatments
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Facials
  • Dermal fillers
  • Microdermabrasion

Medical spas can operate technologically advanced aesthetic platforms that use laser, ultrasound, and radiofrequency waves that are only available to trained physicians or aestheticians under their supervision. At Best Plastic Surgery Practice, key medical spa treatments include:

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

As the name suggests, IPL uses intense pulses of light energy to target specific parts of the skin. It helps to reduce the appearance of many types of skin blemishes, including vascular and pigmented lesions such as brown spots and rosacea, and is effective in treating signs of aging and removing unwanted hair.


Microdermabrasion is a method of removing the top layer of skin for clients with conditions such as acne scarring and sun spots. The treatment rejuvenates the skin by stimulating natural healing processes and when new skin grows any blemishes are less obvious.


VelaShape is a device that uses radiofrequency technology to reduce fat and cellulite without the need for surgery. The radiofrequency waves heat the fat cells in the target area, destroying them painlessly and reducing fat permanently.

The atmosphere at a medical spa is one of relaxation and pampering, just as it is at a day spa, with the bonus that you can take advantage of the benefits of having medically qualified staff on hand to optimize your therapeutic experience.
