Most people are used to visiting a medical office for premium skin treatments. Some dermatologists practice in traditional clinics, but medical spas are the perfect compromise between stifling doctors’ offices and relaxing day spas.
At med spas, you meet with skincare experts and receive rejuvenating treatments that give you a natural glow. Medical spa services can transform the health and appearance of your skin.
Medical Spas vs. Traditional Day Spas
You have probably heard of or visited a regular day spa. What is the difference between this type of spa and medical spas? The key difference is that medical spas are staffed with medical professionals. Licensed physicians, nurse practitioners, and dermatology professionals guide your treatments at medical spas.
Day spas typically have aestheticians and beauty specialists on staff. While these cosmetic professionals are very knowledgeable, they cannot perform certain targeted skin treatments. Injectable skincare treatments, for example, must be administered by medical professionals.
However, it’s important to note that medical spas are meant to be relaxing. You can take time out of your busy schedule to address your skin concerns in a calming environment. Medical spa services are high-end and rejuvenating for your skin.
Med Spa Services
What happens when you visit a medical spa? Med spa services range from standard facials to body sculpting to laser services. Each med spa has its own menu of skincare treatments to choose from. At Gold Skin Care Center, we specialize in dermatology and advanced aesthetic treatments.
Laser Skin Treatments
Our laser services address various skin concerns and conditions. Laser skin treatments can address issues like acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and scarring. Depending on your skin condition, you may need laser services to achieve a smooth, even complexion.
Some of the laser treatments we offer at our Laser & Rejuvenation Center include:
- Acne light treatments
- Hyperpigmentation treatments
- Laser hair removal
- miraDry for underarm sweat and odor
- Tattoo removal
- Skin tightening
- Fractional resurfacing
- Vascular lesion removal
- Spider vein treatment
These skin concerns are effectively reduced or removed entirely with our laser treatments. Laser skin treatments correct the pigmentation and texture of your skin without being too harsh or abrasive.
Cellulite management and skin tightening treatments aim to give you a sculpted figure. If you want to reduce the appearance of cellulite or sagging skin, we have a few options for skin tightening treatments.
We offer the latest in skin tightening technology to safely and non-surgically contour your body. These devices use heat energy to shrink loose skin and smooth cellulite.
Facials are part of almost every traditional day spa menu out there. These relaxing sessions nourish your skin and help you unwind. We offer different types of facials, including custom blends of ingredients, to meet your skin’s unique needs. Dermaplaning and other deep exfoliation treatments are also available.
No matter what skin type or concerns you have, we can adjust our facial blends for your skin. We also offer chemical peels, which use safe skin acids to remove dead skin cells. This leaves you with a brand-new layer of skin on the surface, giving you a gorgeous, rejuvenated glow.
Facial treatments are wonderful for relaxation and self-care. Regular appointments can improve the texture, complexion, and youthfulness of your skin. If you want the traditional spa experience while taking care of your skin, facials are a good option for you.
You can get beauty enhancements without the need for daily makeup application with our permanent makeup services. Our certified technicians bring out the natural beauty in your eyebrows, eyelids, and lips with permanent makeup. This involves micro-tattooing these areas for subtle enhancements.
Specialized Dermatology Med Spa Services
Our dermatology staff has the expertise and knowledge to perform high-quality medical skin services. These treatments address chronic skin concerns using medical techniques. If you have specific skin conditions or unpleasant symptoms, our medical dermatology services can improve your skin health.
Dry Skin Treatments
If you suffer from eczema, psoriasis, or other dry skin conditions, we can advise you on the best practices to get relief. Our office carries mild skincare products that can help with dryness, itching, and inflammation. We encourage you to speak with one of our medical professionals to determine the best routine for your skin.
Hair loss can be embarrassing and frustrating for patients. We do hair transplants as well as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to combat hair loss. Platelet-rich plasma injections use the healing properties of your own blood plasma to stimulate hair growth.
Whether you get a hair transplant or PRP hair restoration treatment, know that both are minimally invasive and effective. You can enjoy a head of luscious hair again.
Skin Cancer and Lesions
Skin cancer is a very serious medical condition that needs treatment right away. We offer superficial radiation therapy (SRT) if we determine that you are a good candidate for it. This form of radiation is non-surgical and targets some forms of skin cancer. If you have basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas, you may be a good candidate for SRT.
We also perform biopsies to detect the presence of skin cancer. If you are concerned, please contact one of our dermatologists as soon as possible. Early detection is key to preventing the spread of cancer.
