The Medical Spa Era

Aug 18, 2007
Welcome to the medical spa era. We now live in an age where the expectations of the consumer that seemed out of reach five years ago are now a reality. This is true in many aspects of our lives, but there are few industries where this has become more evident that in the field of skin care and anti-aging.

According to the 2002 US Census, more than $12 billion is spent each year on cosmetology services. As the baby boomer generation has begun to reach their fifties, the desire to fight the signs of aging has been elevated to an all time high. Consumers are eager for effective solutions to eliminate wrinkles, rejuvenate the skin and to maintain a youthful appearance. For many years the answer to these requests were either topical skin care treatments, such as lotions, potions, and peels, or surgery. Topical remedies typically only provide a minor amount of benefit, and surgical procedures may require anesthesia, extensive recovery time, and discomfort. Thanks to recent advances in technology, we now have a middle ground.

The missing void that we have needed for so very long in the skin care profession has been filled by the advent of medical aesthetic procedures. Medical aesthetics represents the union of medically based procedures to perform non-invasive cosmetic enhancements. What does that mean? It means more significant changes without the draw backs of surgery. It means that many of the skin care ailments that have plagued us for decades can now be resolved with the use of lasers or other energy based devices when placed in the hands of trained and skilled professionals.

Eliminating wrinkles, reducing cellulite, getting rid of unwanted hair forever, or taking off that tattoo with the name of your ex-boyfriend can now be accomplished, and these concepts are no longer science fiction. Where can one find a provider of such services? At your local medical spa. Until the advent of lasers there was really no good way to get rid of a spider vein without puncturing the skin or volunteering for surgery. Before radio frequency devices, the only solution to tightening up lax skin was to have it removed by a surgeon. Now these and the many other wonderful advanced skin care procedures can be performed on your lunch break at a mall or spa location near you.

The miracle that is the internet provides a medspa directory that offers contact information for the more than two thousand medical spas that are located across the country. You can also find reviews from peers who have had experiences with this new breed of cosmetology professional to help you to make an informed decision when selecting a provider.

The future is now, and the more you are able to learn about the solutions provided by medical spas, the more that you will likely find that there are ways to resolve everyday problems that were until recently unheard of. Consult a medspa directory today to start your journey towards the new you.
