What Are the Benefits of Going to a Medical Spa Instead of a Spa?

Medical day spas have become increasingly popular in recent years as more and more people look for safe, effective, accessible ways to relieve stress and improve their overall health and wellness. Medical day spas are different from “regular” day spas, combining the benefits of both a spa and a medical practice. If you’re not sure what the difference is between a medical day spa and a regular spa — and why a medical day spa just might be a better choice for you — here’s the scoop.

What a spa offers

Most day spas offer several options for massages and facial treatments, performed in a relaxing atmosphere. Some spas may offer additional treatments, like light therapy or salt or sugar scrubs. Depending on the spa you select, you may have access to different types of massages, like sports massage, hot stone massage, Swedish massage, and scalp and foot options. Facials typically use a variety of products to help clear your skin and give you a healthy glow.  

Overall, the primary goal of a day spa is to provide you with services and treatments that help you relax and relieve stress and anxiety. Considering how busy and hectic our lives can be, these types of services can be extremely beneficial in reducing stress and helping you feel refreshed and rejuvenated. At a medical spa, you can still get the same treatments that are offered at a regular day spa — but you’ll have lots of other options, too.

What a medical spa offers

At Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa, we offer an array of treatments designed to help you look and feel your best from the inside out. Yes, we offer a wide variety of massage choices including therapeutic massage to relieve specific muscle pains and inflammation, as well as massage aimed at relieving stress. But as a medical spa, we offer much more, including options like dermaplaning, microneedling, injectable fillers and BOTOX, PRP treatments, and even the HCG Weight Management Program to help you shed excess pounds and enjoy the benefits of a slimmer, sleeker body. In short, because a medical day spa offers so many options, it’s a more holistic, whole-body experience than a regular day spa that offers a far more limited experience.

Treatments by professionals

Having lots of options is great, but as everyone knows, those options are pretty much only as good as the person who’s providing them. At a medical day spa like Dutch Hollow, all treatments are provided by specially trained, licensed professionals. That means not only can you feel confident in the care you receive, but you can also feel confident in the results. Plus, that special training means our team can recommend a series of treatments that are customized specifically to your needs and your treatment goals.

Focus on anti-aging

If you're looking for ways to reduce the signs of aging, a medical day spa is absolutely hands down the better way to go. Medical day spas have a deep focus on anti-aging treatments using a variety of cutting-edge approaches you won't find at a regular day spa. Yes, a day spa might offer facials that use anti-aging products to reduce dryness and improve the texture of your skin temporarily. But a medical day spa offers in-depth anti-aging treatments, like PRP (a.k.a. “vampire facials”) and microneedling to actually improve skin’s structure, ramping up production of healthy collagen and elastin and helping your skin repair itself over time. 

Whole-body and wellness options

At Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa, we know looking great starts with feeling great — and being healthy. We also offer weight-loss plans using HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin, a naturally occurring hormone that helps your body metabolize fat and shed pounds more effectively than diet or exercise alone. And, we help patients refine their weight-loss efforts even more with the Venus Freeze, a state-of-the-art noninvasive medical treatment designed to eliminate cellulite, tighten skin, and reduce wrinkles and sagging.

More than skin deep: Why a medical spa is right for you

Even if you’re mainly looking for a place to get a really good massage, visiting a medical day spa instead of a regular spa makes a lot of sense. That’s because our trained staff is skilled in making sure every patient gets the right kind of massage along with ancillary treatments aimed at reducing stress and improving overall wellness and self-confidence, too. If you’d like to enjoy a whole-body spa experience with state-of-the-art treatments focused on your specific needs, our team can help!
