What Can a Medical Spa Do For You?

When it comes to wellness and beauty treatments, medical spas have become the go-to for anyone seeking self-care.

Med spas combine medical expertise with a spa-like environment, offering patients a range of treatments to enhance physical appearance and overall well-being. But what can med spa treatments do for you?

Let’s look at how a med spa differs from a day spa and how the different treatments can help you look and feel your best.

Med Spa vs Traditional Day Spa

A medical spa and a traditional spa often have some overlap in the types of treatment options they offer, but there are a few fundamental differences.

First, a medical spa is staffed by licensed medical personnel like nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and even doctors. At Parfaire, our treatments are overseen by Dr. Winnie Moses, a licensed physician with over 20 years of experience in the medical field. Having healthcare professionals on staff is vital because certain med spa treatments like Botox and other injectables must be performed by a medical professionals.

Med Spa vs Traditional Day Spa

Further, medical spas tailor each client’s treatment plan to their specific needs. Since no two patients are exactly alike, med spas typically don’t offer one-size-fits-all treatments.

A traditional day spa will be staffed by highly-trained licensed estheticians who provide services like massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures. When you go in for a spa treatment, you’ll likely choose from a set menu of services and there is little deviation in the service from one client to another.

Overall, med spas and traditional day spas are both great additions to your self-care routine, although they do serve different purposes.

Med Spa Treatments for the Face

Facial treatments are one of the most popular categories of med spa services.


Injectables like Botox and dermal fillers are especially popular for those wanting to address premature aging or simply soften the appearance of aging skin. These non-invasive cosmetic procedures can only be performed by licensed medical practitioners, like those at Parfaire Medical Aesthetics.

Botox is a great way reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while dermal fillers add volume to areas with collagen loss, smoothing out wrinkles and rejuvenating the skin. With both of these treatments, you can expect younger looking skin, which often leads to a boost in self confidence.

Facial Skin Treatments

Facial rejuvenation treatments also extend to laser and LED therapies. Laser treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, target specific skin concerns like sun damage, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines. These procedures use focused laser energy to stimulate collagen production to promote healthier, more youthful-looking skin. Laser therapies allow clients to address their skin concerns with minimal downtime.

Non-surgical facelifts like Forma and PDO Threads lift and tighten the face, leaving you with a naturally more youthful look.

For those seeking a facial transformation without injections, medical spas often offer skin care treatments like microneedling, Lumecca, and clinical solutions for acne and other skin conditions.

Overall, facial medical spa treatments for the face provide an effective way to transform your look without downtime or medical procedures like surgery.

Medical Spa Treatments for the Body

Medical Spa Treatments for the Body

If you’re looking to revamp your appearance beyond skin care and anti aging treatments, med spas have a variety of non-invasive options for the body.

Laser Hair Removal

In southern California, it’s bikini season year round. That’s why one of our most popular medical spa treatments is laser hair removal. With our virtually painless hair removal method, clients can say goodbye to shaving their legs, underarms, and bikini line.

Body Sculpting & Cellulite Reduction

Body sculpting treatments like BodyFX target problematic fatty tissue with heat-based fat sculpting. The result is a slimmer figure with tighter and smoother skin.

If you have the silhouette you want, but still struggle with stubborn cellulite, a med spa can help. At Parfaire, we offer a cellulite reduction treatment that uses suction-coupled precision controlled Radio Frequency (RF) energy and high-voltage electroporation adipolysis (fat cell destruction) to target all three core problems of cellulite. This treatment smoothes out unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat, tightens up tissue, and breaks off the septa causing dimpling.

We even offer treatments to help with hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) and stretch marks. By helping clients with these issues, medical spa treatments provide aesthetic and health benefits.
