Definition: Medspa

One of the biggest trends in beauty is the medspa, short for "medical spa." Medspas offer services that you might find at a doctor's office, but they're given in a more luxurious, less clinical environment. From my experience having an errant capillary zapped, I can say that you can get great results!

Each medspa is different, but you can count on most to offer skincare services such as Botox injections, microdermabrasion and laser hair removal. Others may offer teeth whitening or facials, while a few provide more serious treatments such as liposuction.

In finding a medspa, you might want to look for promotions for first-time clients—but if a deal seems too cheap to be true, there's probably a catch. Don't be shy about researching which qualifications are needed to perform certain treatments, either; although most medspas have a well-credentialed physician on staff, double-check before your first appointment.

Cool! I think everyone over here would love to check something like that out. In the mean time at least we have our products! Cosmedicine and MDSkincare are great lines for anyone who wants to get that "medical" edge.
