A spa day is relaxing and can be very beneficial to your skin and mind, and depending on the type of spa you head to, you can enjoy different benefits. A day spa and a medical spa may not seem as though they have too many differences, but there are a few differences that set the two spa types apart.

Depending on the type of results you are looking for, one spa may be the better option than the other. At Nuderma Health & Med Spa, we can help you get the results you want with our medical grade treatments, products, and procedures. To learn more about the difference between a day spa and a medical spa, keep reading!

Day Spa

Most people go to a day spa to relax, get pampered, and improve their beauty. Day spas allow people to take a break from their hectic lives and spend some time in deep relaxation while getting a multitude of treatments done. A majority of day spas offer services such as: manicure and pedicure, facials, aromatherapy, body wraps, and massages. Depending on the day spa you go to you may find some other services like makeup applications, waxing, and hair salons services, but it all depends on which spa you head to.

These services can be beneficial and can target the areas you want fixed, such as large pores, sore muscles, and the likes, but they do not use the advanced products and tools that med spas have access to. That is one of the main differences between the two spa types. Day spa aestheticians do not generally have medical training to perform the procedures found at a med spa. While some employees may be trained in massage therapy and other areas, they may only be qualified in those areas.

A day spa is perfect for those who want a simple facial to slightly improve their skin, or a mani pedi to relax and enjoy some time to themselves. If you are looking for something more, with benefits that are more noticeable, a med spa may be what you are looking for.

Med Spa

A medical spa is, by definition, “a facility that during all hours of business shall operate under the on-site supervision of a licensed health care professional operating within their scope of practice…” and at Nuderma Health & Med Spa, Dr. Stephen Spencer is our licensed health care professional. A med spa is like a mix of a day spa and a medical skin care clinic and offers medical grade treatments and products. While you can still relax at a spa, the results are the main focus on a med spa. The procedures offered are meant to target the areas that you are unhappy with, whether it is wrinkles, pigmentation problems, sagging skin, or whatever else it may be.

The med spa treatments and procedures are meant to improve the way you look and help you become more confident in your skin. These medical grade tool and products help to minimize our insecurities and flaws and leave us feeling happy and beautiful. At Nuderma Health & Med Spa, we offer many different services to target the many different problem areas that bother many different people. These services include:

These procedures are meant to help you with many different things. Target wrinkles, skin discolorations, acne, dry skin, and so much more with a hydrafacial. Get rid of the unwanted sagging skin under your chin with a Kybella procedure. These services are meant to help you feel better in your own skin and see the results you want.

While med spas and day spas may offer some of the same or similar services and treatment, a med spa will use higher grade products, meaning that the results will be more noticeable and effective treatment.

You should decide on the spa type based on a few things:

  • Are you looking for dramatic and obvious results?
  • Are you hoping for something more than just a facial that leaves your face clean?
  • Do you want to target unwanted body fat and sagging skin?
  • Will your desired results need medical grade procedures?

If you answered yes to these questions, a med spa is going to be the spa for you. And at Nuderma Health & Med Spa, we can help to ensure you get the results you want and leave feeling confident in your own skin. If you answered no to these questions, head to a day spa and enjoy a regular facial and a day of relaxation!
