The Difference Between a Day Spa & Medical Spa


The similarities between a day spa and a medical spa may seem easily recognizable, but it’s the key differences that truly set them apart. At Body Beautiful Spa, we pride ourselves on being a high-quality, professional medical spa while offering the many soothing and relaxing treatments of a traditional day spa. But what exactly are those key differences?



Medical Spas

Med spas combine innovative medical technology with highly trained professionals to improve your appearance using the best in aesthetic enhancing technology. Medical spas like ours use only licensed medical professionals – such as a full-time nurses or physician’s assistants – to perform medically based aesthetic procedures like skin rejuvenation and weight-loss treatments.

Some of our medical spa services include:

  • Wrinkle reducing injections
  • Dermal fillers
  • Skin tightening & body contouring
  • Laser services
  • Skin rejuvenation & resurfacing

Day Spas

Traditional day spas are focused solely on personal care treatments to renew and rejuvenate your body and mind in a tranquil, spa-like setting. Typically, day spas offer an array of relaxation services including massages, facials, body wraps, aromatherapy, and esthetic treatments (like eyelash extensions or waxing). Since day spa treatments don’t require medical supervision, full-time day spas generally don’t employ medical professionals. However, at Body Beautiful, we blend the best of both medical and day spa treatments to give you the most beautiful version of YOU.

Some of our day spa services include:

  • Facials
  • Massages
  • Body scrubs & wraps
  • Eyelash extensions
  • Waxing
