How to Choose the Right Medical Spa


Medical spas have been popping up everywhere these days. Many of the procedures at medical spas offer attractive alternatives to going to a plastic surgeon.  The main reason is the cost factor, but that is not the only reason.  People tend to love the service and extra attention you get at a medical spa compared to a doctor’s office. And with medical spas, most of the appointments run on-time compared to having to wait for a doctor.


The first thing you should do is to research the team and ensure they provide outstanding service.  One of the best ways to do so is to check the online reviews of the medical spas you are interested in.  Google the business name and look for any Google Reviews.  If they don’t have any Google reviews that aren’t necessarily a strike against them, they could be a new business.  However, many of the established medical spas will have some reviews. Start by reading the reviews to get a good sense of how good/bad their staff and customer service is.

After you have read the reviews on Google go ahead and do the same thing for Yelp.  When it comes to medical spas, more reviews are left on Yelp than any other platform.  Be sure to read both the five-star reviews and the one and two-star reviews. This will give you a better idea of how they treat their clients.


One of the single most significant factors is price.  Who has the best deals right now or a Groupon for the procedure? A huge word of caution, the best pricing is usually not the best service to go with.  You can do some research, and you will find that almost all medical spas offer new patient incentives. Whether its an introductory pricing or commentary services it’s usually listed on their website.  And if for some reason it is not, call them anyway and ask.  You will be surprised at how many medical spas offer new something for new patients.

A good example of this is Viva Day Spa in Austin, Texas. On their medical spa page, they list several of their promotions going on that both new patients and existing ones can take advantage of.

Procedures Offered

It can be critical to choose a medical spa that offers a wide variety of procedures.  Many times people seeking treatments are looking for additional ways to make their skin look younger and more vibrant. A combination of procedures can help achieve goals better than a single procedure. Some of the more popular treatments are:

  • Botox
  • Laser Hair Removal
  • Chemical Peels
  • Coolsculpting
  • Facials
  • Juvederm


We have all heard this before; “Location, Location, Location!” The truth is a convenience in our daily lives are so important. The first thing you need to decide is when you will get your procedures done.  Will it is on your lunch break or will it be on the weekend? Many people choose convenience for their work. The two most popular options are to get procedures done during a lunch break or immediately after work. Not all procedures you will want to have done during a lunch break. Things like Botox, hair removal, and Juvederm are usually fine. However, those getting a chemical peel or Coolsculpting may want to wait until after work to allow more recovery time.


If you want the best experience you can have at a medical spa, then you have to put in a little work.  Never go with the best pricing or nearest location without doing your due diligence first.
