Why Choose a Medical Spa?
in Avon, Connecticut
If you’re considering a cosmetic treatment, it can be difficult to decide where you should go. Choosing between a medical spa and a traditional day spa may be confusing if you’re unsure about the difference between the two. Stanislaw Plastic Surgery’s Medical Spa offers effective treatments from qualified professionals. Before you book your first appointment, here are a few things you should know about medical spas.
What Makes Medical Spas Different from Traditional Day Spas?
Unlike a traditional day spa, a medical spa can offer more advanced treatments that require a trained dermatologist, plastic surgeon, or esthetician. While many of the procedures that are offered by a day spa, such as a facial, are offered by medical spas as well, more advanced procedures will be overseen by a medical professional. Even if your treatment is not performed by a doctor, you can rest assured that your treatment is supervised by one.
In addition, the primary goal of the treatments differs between medical spas and day spas. A traditional day spa is primarily focused on providing a relaxing experience. However, medical spa treatments are more focused on providing the most effective treatments and driven by results. While many of our medical spa’s treatments are very relaxing, this is not our first priority.
Who Performs Medical Spa Treatments?
At a day spa, all treatments are performed by an esthetician. While medical spas also offer treatments that are performed by estheticians, you can receive treatments from plastic surgeons as well. At Stanislaw Plastic Surgery, Dr. Stanislaw may assist with or perform more invasive procedures such as injectables, chemical peels, or acne scar treatments. This increased expertise and a wider range of knowledge are some of the reasons why a medical spa can offer enhanced results compared to a day spa.

Should You Go to a Medical Spa for Acne Treatment?
If you’re suffering with acne, a medical spa can offer some of the most effective treatments within a relaxing environment. Treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, injectable fillers, and laser treatments are all options that can be effective for both breakouts and acne scarring. Dr. Stanislaw and our esthetician can develop a treatment plan that is most effective for your skin type.
