A medical spa can be a bit confusing to those who don’t know much about it. As a hybrid between a clinic and a day spa, the protocol of what make a medical spa trustworthy can be a bit of a gray area. Luckily, your Long Island Medical Spa is here to lay down the law of what to look for before you choose.
- There’s a doctor on the premises
At the very least, your medical spa should have a doctor on hand to oversee some of the larger procedures. Regulations vary from state to state, so some doctors tend to just lend their name to medical spas, yet are never actually on the premises. Truth+Beauty has Dr. Levine onsite, and the medical spa you choose should have an equally as qualified medical professional who is there to guide you and answer any questions you might have.
This concept goes far beyond medical spas to any spa or clinic in general, but take note of the cleanliness of your medical spa before you commit to it. Do the employees change the wax after session? Are all the machines properly sanitized? These are things you should inquire about before signing on with anyone.
- Quality of the equipment
This should go without saying, but you should always do research into the equipment at a medical spa before deciding on a procedure. Know what the most up-to-date technology is, know the general prices, and know the science behind it. What one person has no reaction to, another person might react to quite badly. And since the technology is always changing, make sure the medical spa you choose has the newest machines. Here at our Long Island Medical Spa, we have the newest technology, such as the Ultherapy and Liposonix. If your medical spa seems to be using outdated equipment and ancient procedures, consider shopping around for something else.
- Aftercare/explanation of machines
Just like you’d want your doctor to have good bedside manner and show genuine interest in your well being, your medical spa should have a friendly and caring staff, who reaches out to you after your procedures to see how you’re doing. If you get a good vibe from your medical spa, roll with it!
