If you are wanting to improve your skin and gain an overall younger and healthier look, you’ve probably been told that you should pay a visit to a local med spa. If you have yet to receive this advice, then let us be the first to tell you—go to a med spa!

For those who are not familiar, a med spa is something in between a medical clinic, dermatological clinic, and day spa. Most medical spas are equipped to handle all your cosmetic and aesthetic needs as well as many therapeutic needs, like deep tissue massages. Additionally, unlike in the past when we had to primarily rely on homemade remedies and over-the-counter lotions and serums to reduce the signs of aging, many med spas offer cutting-edge anti-aging treatments as a part of their repertoire.

Med spas have become remarkably successful in the last few years, and there now seems to be more of them than ever. This raises the question, how do you choose the best med spa? In today’s blog, we at Trouvaille Med Spa would like to help give you the information you need to confidently answer this question. If you are in the Naperville or Bonita Springs area, we will save you the hassle of reading—contact us and schedule your consultation today!

State-of-the-art Equipment

Though having the greatest and latest technology doesn’t always imply the greatest service and results, in the medical spa world this tends to, more often than not, be the case. At Trouvaille Med Spa, for example, we are relentlessly committed to providing our customers with the safest, most cutting-edge techniques and cosmetic treatments. We believe that in order to meet the diverse needs of diverse clients, you have to have the best equipment. This is why we strive to always be at the forefront with our technology—for instance, we are one of the few med spas in the area to offer Halo treatments (the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser that provides superior skin care restoration) and laser hair removal. Learn more about our cutting-edge technology.

Certified Staff

If you are seeking a treatment that has potentially long-term effects on your body, don’t you want to know that the procedure will be performed by certified experts? The answer is, of course,  yes. At Trouvaille Med Spa, this is always the case. Our team of skin care professionals has years of experience and training, and they leverage this expertise to provide some of the most effective, medical-grade treatments available, like laser hair removal, chemical peels, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Rejuvenation Therapy, and more.

An Array of Services

Quality med spas will offer a wide variety of services, including many non-invasive procedures. In the last decade, medical advancements have made it possible for patients to now have dozens and dozens of non-invasive treatments to choose from. These include anti-aging procedures like Botox, Kybella, Belotero, Dysport, and more. At Trouvaille Med Spa, we take great pride in the variety of cosmetic services that we are able to offer. Both of our med spas — Naperville and Bonita Springs — offer our clients injectables, PRP, esthetics, laser treatments and dermatological treatments. Check out all of our services.

Good Reviews

Though this could probably go without saying (because it can just be assumed that it’s what we all do), it’s always good to check the reviews of your med spa before scheduling an appointment. A simple Google search will likely pull up the reviews from all the big platforms, but because many med spas offer medical services, you may also find reviews in medical review boards. This can be a great preliminary search tool.

Comfortable Environment

When you walk into a med spa, you should feel comfortable. You should feel welcomed by the staff, and you should have a general feeling that this is a place you can relax and receive excellent service and care. Additionally, it should feel like a safe and sterile environment. Pay attention to matters both big and small. For example, is the staff washing their hands? Using gloves? Do they seem knowledgeable? Applying this critical perspective will help ensure that you are in good hands. At Trouvaille Med Spa, comfort and safety are of the utmost importance, and we take pride in our high standards.

Results

Results can be a hard thing to guarantee because people respond very differently. It is, therefore, possible that you could get good results from just a single treatment and also possible that you could see zero results after a series of treatments. As a general rule of thumb, if your chosen med spa succeeds in all of the categories listed above, the results will likely follow. Whether we are performing an injectable treatment, like Restylane, or an esthetic treatment, like microblading, we expect results and are accustomed to getting them.

When scoping out possible med spas, keep these tips in mind and don’t hesitate to ask lots of questions. Never forget that this is a medical facility, and you are a patient. If they are unable to answer your questions or do not seem to have a firm understanding of the treatments, you may want to check out another facility.
