I got a HydraFacial by Lauren Siso (@esty_lauren) and it was THE BEST thing I could do for my skin! Lauren took her time to answer all of my skincare questions. She gave me so much information on my skin and what is best for it. It was so relaxing and my skin was GLOWING when I left and the next day! Would definitely recommend and will be coming back.
Lauren Siso is the best esthetician and I am so glad she is at this office. She takes such great care of you and your skin concerns and has wonderful follow up. I always feel beautiful after leaving her!
Lauren Siso has single handedly brought life back into my skin. I met her through a friend at her previous spa and fell in love. I’m inspired by her passion for all types of skin and attention to detail. She has literally not only transformed my skin, but also my beauty regiment. We started off with the HydraFacial and two chemical peels. My skin is ready for summer and so am I!
A medical spa (med spa) is a hybrid between an aesthetic medical center/skincare clinic and a day spa. According to the American Med Spa Association, there are four elements that characterize a medical spa:
Offer non-invasive (non-surgical) aesthetic medical services and treatments
Skincare professionals operate under the general supervision of a licensed physician
Services are performed by trained, experienced and qualified practitioners
Procedures are performed with onsite supervision by a licensed healthcare professional.
2. What is the difference between a medical spa and a day spa?
Medical aesthetic treatments go far beyond therapeutic and relaxing facials and mud baths. Treatments at many medical spas are more results driven with a focus on corrective and preventative skin care treatments.
Aesthetic medicine includes all procedures in the field of aesthetics except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Non surgical aesthetic procedures include some of the following:
