The rise in popularity of cosmetic treatments in recent years has resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of providers offering these services. In many ways, choosing the right provider for your desired procedure can be an intimidating process. There are many factors to evaluate before arriving at a health care professional with whom you feel comfortable.
When you are undergoing a non-surgical cosmetic procedure such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or dermal fillers, one of your most important choices involves whether to go to a plastic surgeon or a med spa. While both of these options can deliver exceptional results, there are some important differences between the two.
Med spas are operated under the supervision of a licensed medical doctor, often a board certified plastic surgeon. They provide clinical treatments for a variety of skin conditions as well as many of the relaxing and rejuvenating services provided at a typical day spa.
While it is important to go to a board certified plastic surgeon for all surgical procedures, you might be better off working with a med spa for minimally invasive treatments such as:
The nurses and aestheticians performing these services at a med spa deliver these treatments day in and day out. As a result, they have a strong grasp on the many nuances involved in these procedures, and they know which techniques will deliver the most natural looking outcome for each patient.
Many plastic surgeons make surgical procedures the focus of their practice and therefore do not perform these nonsurgical treatments nearly as often as the nurses and aestheticians at a med spa. They may only administer these nonsurgical procedures once or twice a week instead of multiple times a day. This difference in experience and familiarity with treatment techniques can have a significant impact on your results.
