When you think of the word spa, you likely imagine a day spa: somewhere you go to get a relaxing massage and a pedicure. However, there are different types of spas. While day spas are a great way to relax and rejuvenate, medical spas offer more medical services such as skin treatments, laser hair removal and more. Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads has a state of the art MedSpa that offers a variety of treatment options. 

What is the difference?

While a medical spa does offer some services that day spas offer, there are several differences between the two:

  • Medical Services: Med spas offer more medical services than day spas. Services offered at med spas include skin treatments, laser hair removal, Botox and fillers, and more.
  • Licensed Professionals: Med spas are staffed with licensed professionals, such as doctors, nurses and estheticians. Day spas are typically staffed with estheticians, massage therapists and cosmetologists. 
  • Atmosphere: Med spas sometimes have a more clinical atmosphere than day spas because they offer medical services that require exam rooms and medical equipment. Day spas generally utilize their space to create a soothing, serene atmosphere.
