If you are considering any kind of medical spa treatment or procedure to help you improve your skin and your appearance, it important to do your research before you make your final decision. It’s not just about knowing what you want to achieve, although that is often the best place to start. It’s also about knowing how those results can be achieved and where to go to get the best possible results. Here at Mariposa MedSpa, we believe that knowledge is one of the best things we can offer our customers. The more informed you are, the better we can serve you.
When considering medical spa treatments of any kind, it can be far too easy to just believe the hype and jump straight into booking the treatment. But it’s important to remember that these treatments and procedures are not always as simple or straightforward as “regular” spa treatments.
A medical spa is different, in that the options offered here can be more aggressive forms of treatment than your standard facial. Medical spas are also run under the strict supervision of a licensed physician, according to the International Medical Spa Association. As a result, the team members and aesthetic professionals should have the best and most up-to-date training and certifications. We are proud to meet those credentials here at Mariposa MedSpa; our team is highly-trained and ready to serve you.
Researching your treatment or procedure is also a good idea. The internet is a wonderful tool for this, and there is a wide variety of valuable information out there. Sites and sources of information that are valuable for this kind of research include WedMD, professional medical associations, and even Wikipedia — the references at the end of Wikipedia articles, in particular, can lead you to other forms of valid and information research. Make notes for yourself about any additional questions or concerns you have as you go about your search. This is your body, your skin, yourself! No question or concern is too small.
Once you have done your research, there is something else you can do before having your treatment. Have a consultation with the facility and professionals you are considering. Here at Mariposa, our consultations are always complimentary; you should be wary of any place that doesn’t offer this kind of service. Consultations are very important. Even the most diligent of research can leave you with questions, and getting those questions answered before you decide on treatment is important, even vital.
Remember that medical spa treatments often involve high-tech tools such as lasers (for skin rejuvenation, hair removal, etc.) as well as injectable agents (like Botox and dermal fillers) and services that treat your veins (spider vein removal). So it’s important to talk to a professional to get an overview that you might not be aware of, and also to know for sure that the procedure you are considering is right for you.
Every procedure isn’t right for every person. There are many factors that must be taken into consideration before performing medical spa treatments. Sometimes, the consumer isn’t the best person to figure that out, and that is why our professionals are here.
During your consultation, we will carefully go over the steps and details of whatever you are considering having done. We will discuss precautions, if any, and the results you can realistically expect, which may be different than what you thought. We will answer all of your questions and help alleviate any concerns you may have. But most of all, we will make sure that your treatment is right for you. And if it isn’t, we will help you find an alternative. It’s all about information and trust. We want you to have only the best experience here at our medical spa. Call us today to learn more.
