What is a Med Spa?
A med spa, short for medical spa, is a clinic that provides several procedures under the guidance and direction of a certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Practitioners in a med spa are highly trained and certified to perform the more invasive and medically grounded procedures that a med spa offers. Med spa treatments can be focused on relaxation benefits such as massages, seaweed wraps and facials, or can be grounded in proven medical and science benefits with more specialized treatments such as Botox injections, derma fillers, microdermabrasion and chemical peels, among other treatment options. A med spa must be owned and operated under the professional guidance and supervision of a certified and licensed dermatologist or plastic surgeon. While they don’t need to be onsite at all times, they are responsible for the procedures being performed and ensuring their practitioners have the proper training and certifications required in order to perform the procedures and treatments being offered. A med spa aims to provide many of the medical treatments offered through a dermatologist’s office, but with the luxury, ambience and comfort of a day spa environment.
What are the most popular medical spa services?
Medical spa services will vary based on the individual med spa and the expertise of their practitioners, as well as the overall business strategy and area of focus of the dermatologist or plastic surgeon leading the med spa. The services offered can also be dependent on the area’s demographic ensuring that it caters to the needs of the prospective patients in the area. Some of the most popular med spa services currently being offered throughout the US include:
- Botox injections to help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines by preventing the facial muscles from contracting, which can cause creases in the skin.
- Microdermabrasion to smooth and improve the skin’s texture and overall appearance by increasing the production of collagen below the skin’s surface.
- Chemical peels that remove the outermost layers of the skin, revealing fresh, new skin that appears smoother, clearer and younger.
- Laser hair removal for various areas of the body to provide longer lasting, smoother skin than shaving or waxing.
- Derma filler injections to provide plumper, more voluminous skin while smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines.
- Other services to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, stretch marks, skin discoloration and other imperfections in the skin’s surface appearance.

What is the difference between a day spa and a med spa?
The primary differences between a day spa and a med spa are in the services they offer, the business model and ownership, and the training, experience and certifications of the employees performing the treatments. A med spa provides many of the same services as a traditional day spa, in a similarly luxurious, calming environment, with the addition of services that are based in medical and scientific research for proven results. A med spa must be owned, and procedures overseen by a licensed, practicing dermatologist or plastic surgeon, with the practitioners also required to have the proper training and certifications for the procedures they perform. At Coral Springs Med Spa, our staff are highly trained and experienced in performing the medical spa services that we offer to ensure that patients are safe with minimal risks from the procedures they are undergoing.
We serve patients from Coral Springs FL, Margate FL, Coconut Creek FL, Tamarac FL, and Parkland FL.
