Revivify Medical Spa

When we get the urge to improve our appearance or to treat ourselves to a little rejuvenation and relaxation, the first thing that comes to mind is to pamper ourselves with a spa treatment.

However, not all spa treatments are created equal. There is a substantial difference between the treatments offered at traditional day spas and those provided by medical spas.

Do you know the difference between a Medical Spa and a Day Spa?

While the aesthetics of both facilities may look similar, the reality is there are vast differences in the type of service provided and, most importantly, who provides the treatments.

Day Spa

The primary focus of a day spa is to provide relaxation, personal care, and non-invasive beauty treatments.

Typical services provided by a day spa include massages, mud wraps, facials that only target the outer layers of the skin, manicures, pedicures, eyelash extensions, and waxes. Some may even combine spa services with those of a beauty salon and offer hair and makeup.

As you can see, a day spa is ideal for when you need a little pick-me-up to feel more beautiful than you already are.


Treatment and Service Differences

Every spa, whether day or medical, offers different services and treatment options. 

Services You Can Expect to Find at a Day Spa

  • Various Types of Massages
  • Eyelash Extensions
  • Lash and Brow Tinting
  • Eyelash Lift
  • Body Wrap
  • Waxing
  • Facials
  • Permanent Makeup
  • Body Scrub

Medical Spa

Unlike day spas that focus on improving your outer appearance, medical spas provide medical procedures that are designed to not only improve the appearance but also repair your skin, hair, and even metabolic processes.

In other words, the treatments offered at medical spas have, at the very least, a long-term effect, and in some cases, even permanent positive results.

Another significant difference is who supervises and carries out the medical procedures. The staff hired to work at a day spa are usually licensed estheticians, massage therapists, cosmetologists, or nail techs. On the contrary, medical spas require a physician who performs or oversees all procedures.

When the physicians don’t carry out the treatment themselves, they will delegate the task to another medical professional, usually registered nurses or nurse practitioners. This means you will always have a medical professional by your side while you receive your treatments.
