Is the person who performs treatment a trained medical professional, such as a physician assistant, nurse or nurse practitioner?
What happens if something goes wrong? What are the options for revision and follow up care?
Approach the search for a qualified medical spa with the knowledge that these facilities are businesses looking to cash in on a craze in a very competitive marketplace. That may help you filter out some right away—those that make you feel rushed into a procedure or press you with the dreaded “upsell” should be crossed off your list first.
Find a medical spa with the right medical director and medically trained staff and see if they answer all your questions in a way that makes sense. Then, trust your instincts. You should be able to sense whether your safety and satisfaction are at least on par with the medical spa’s goal to turn a profit.
