Unlike day spas, medical spa treatments must be accredited by, run by, or associated with a licensed medical doctor. While not every treatment is performed by a physician, generally they are all done under the care of a physician, usually a dermatologist or other cosmetic surgeon. In addition to this, Medical Spa treatments may not be covered by your health insurance. As with any medical spa treatment, medical spa treatments are not available for everyone, especially if you have a medical condition or are pregnant. You should check with your health insurance provider to determine whether any medical spa procedures are covered or not. The number of medical spas has significantly increased over the last decade, as more people have begun to understand the benefits of visiting a wellness center. Similar to any other type of spas, these establishments offer many of the same services. In addition to receiving massages, various types of body treatments, manicures, pedicures, and treatments for a variety of acne and skin related problems, customers are often allowed to try out various wellness products at these establishments before making a decision as to whether or not they would like to purchase them at the spa.



Medical spas are not governed by the same rules as traditional medical practices. A qualified physician supervises the procedures that are performed on an individual client. He or she may perform autopsies on the client to determine the cause of death, administer medication, prescribe certain treatments, and recommend certain preventative methods that the physician feels is best for the client. It is the job of the physician to make sure that the esthetician, personal care practitioner, and the medical spa staff are all following professional guidelines for the procedures that they are performing. This ensures that the highest level of quality is achieved.





Botox (botulinum toxin) is a neurotoxin protein produced mainly by the same bacteria Clostridium botulinum. It prevents the secretion of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter from nerve axon ends at the neuromuscular junction, thereby causing botulism. The toxin also causes botulism in animals. Botox (botulinum) injections are frequently done for cosmetic purposes in the face, to reduce wrinkles and for medical purposes like facial rejuvenation, since it helps in the regeneration of collagen and thus prevents wrinkles etc. The FDA had recently approved Botox cosmetic for migraine headaches due to excessive sweating of the area that is affected by the headache. The botox injected near the forehead causes a temporary paralysis of muscles in front of the forehead causing the sufferer to sink into the chair. However this treatment is only useful for patients suffering from migraines. The FDA had earlier approved botox Cosmetic for treating excessive sweating and palpitations. Botox (botulinum toxin injections) is generally used for treating facial problems like frown lines, crow's feet, folds of the nose, wrinkle lines, double chin etc. For these cosmetic uses botox is injected in the forehead. For the treatment of menstrual pain and spasms botox is injected in the lower back, chest or arms. In Australia, the only approved use of botox cosmetic is for migraine headaches, which can be administered either by continuous infusions or by intermittent injection over a specific period of time.




Facial Spa


Facial spas are increasing in popularity throughout the world. The main reason for this is that they offer the opportunity to treat various conditions and even correct minor issues such as fine lines, wrinkles and facial dryness. One can receive treatments in a variety of different formats from clay masks, herbal baths, essential body treatments and deep skin peel/sauna treatments. All treatments are aimed at restoring and maintaining the healthiest skin possible. Medical facials are one of the most popular treatments offered at a Facial Spa. As they are generally carried out by highly trained therapists, they are some of the most effective treatments available. They can help to remove dead skin cells, reduce acne, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and restore the softness of the facial skin. There are a number of different medical facials that can be carried out at the spa, although treatments such as deep pore cleansing and microdermabrasion are almost always carried out as part of a series of services offered at a medical spa. 



A good spa will always carry out any necessary treatments in the strict safest manner possible, using only safe products which have been tested and approved by qualified professionals. Some of the most common and popular treatments which people receive at a facial spa include microdermabrasion, acid peels and clay masks. These are all treatments that are carried out by trained and experienced specialists who have the knowledge and expertise required to safely carry out these procedures without causing excessive damage to the skin. A good spa should offer a wide range of services, which all provide a solution to one or more issues related to the skin. Facial spas are a great way to improve the appearance of your skin, and the increase in services provided by new spa facilities is an indication that they are becoming hugely popular amongst consumers looking for a new look or refreshed feeling.
