When seeking a med spa, you want to be confident in your choice. But even though you know you should do your research, you may not be sure what questions to ask and what to look for in a treatment center.
What you do know is that you want the whole package; state-of-the-art equipment, experienced and qualified staff, and a relaxing atmosphere. Looking at before-and-after photos and reading reviews is a good start. In addition, here are 10 things to consider when choosing a med spa.
The technicians are often the individuals performing procedures directly on patients. Choose a center that puts technician training as a top priority. Not only should technicians have the training required to provide services, but they should be trained on the specific equipment they use by the manufacturers. Because laser and other equipment vary, it is crucial that the staff have this direct training as well as experience on the specific equipment they are utilizing.
Credible Lasers & Equipment
You want to choose a laser center that uses state-of-the-art equipment to get the best possible results in the safest way. The best equipment comes from top manufacturers such as Cynosure, Palomar, Cutera, and Zeltiq.
Any doctor can oversee a medical spa. The doctor does not need to have any particular credentials or be board certified in a relevant area. You should seek out a center headed by a doctor who is a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS).
Doctor on Staff
While it is a requirement that a med spa is overseen by a doctor, it is best if a doctor is present in the office at all times. Knowing a qualified physician is always present to properly supervise and oversee the center will ensure you are confident in your care.
Continuing education is essential in any facility to make sure the staff remains up to date on the latest advancements in the field as well as reinforce existing skills and experience. Make sure you choose a facility where the staff is current with their training and continuing education.
The equipment at a laser center is key to obtaining the safest care and optimal results. Regular maintenance ensures the laser equipment is performing at its best. Feel free to ask a treatment facility about regular equipment maintenance.
All aestheticians should be licensed by the state in which the laser center is located. Your health and safety are important, and you should never leave your care in the hands of non-professionals.
Staff should not only be happy to answer all of your questions before and during your treatment but there should also be clear post-treatment instructions, and the staff should be available for any post-treatment concerns you have.
You should feel comfortable and confident in your provider’s staff. But you should also feel comfortable in the facility. A clean, calming, state-of-the-art atmosphere means even more confidence that you made the best choice.
Look for a center that has an established practice. Along with a comfortable facility, excellent equipment, and staff credentials, highly experienced providers are a must.
