What You Should Look for in a Med Spa

Like any spa experience, a med spa visit is meant to be a time where you take a moment from your busy life and do something for yourself. With a med spa, not only do you get to do this but you get the added benefit of expertise found only at physicians’ offices. Here at Alazzo Med Spa, you get state-of-the-art equipment, and compassionate, knowledgeable staff – which are all expectations you likely have. When choosing a med spa there are many things to consider.

Whether you are visiting a med spa to treat a specific health condition or address an aesthetic concern, you should expect both a pleasant experience and results. But knowing how to find the right med spa can be overwhelming, especially as more businesses are offering similar services all over the region. So how do you decide which one to choose? For starters, ask the right questions! Here are some factors to consider before booking a med spa appointment:

Staff training and expertise 

Your first consideration should be experience, both in the med spa staff and that of other clients. All med spas are operated under the supervision of a licensed physician or, in some states, a nurse practitioner. Before committing, inquire about the expertise of the staff members who will perform your procedure. Are they licensed and do they hold certification in those services? Have they undergone rigorous training? Do they seek out continual education to ensure they are providing the most up-to-date, effective services? 

Customer experience

When it comes to client experience, your friends or acquaintances are the ideal resources. Ask your besty about his or her experience. Did the staff listen to their needs and offer tailored solutions? Did they enjoy their visit? Did they receive the results they were hoping for? And if you don’t have a friend who can provide advice, read through some Yelp reviews. If you see a plethora of negative reviews, it’s a no-go!

Variety of Services

Most med spas offer a variety of services ranging from injectables and chemical peels to intense pulse light therapy. Begin by identifying your needs. Do you want to reduce fine lines and wrinkles? Are you in need of laser hair removal? Be completely candid when it comes to your concerns so your technician can provide a personalized plan that delivers the results you desire. The best part about going to a med spa with a variety of services is that they know you – they know what your concerns are, your preferences and your history. You don’t have to worry about reexplaining everything to several different people when you’re getting your services under one roof.

Equipment and technology

Ask the service providers about the equipment they use, how old it is, and if it is inspected and serviced regularly. The facility should have the most up-to-date equipment, techniques, and technology. 


When you visit for your consultation, pay careful attention to the atmosphere and how every staff member you interact with treats you. Consider it an immediate disqualifier if the technician providing your consultation seems rushed or distracted. In addition, when choosing a med spa you should expect nothing less than a spotless facility. Many procedures take many hours and multiple visits. If you’re going to spend that much time somewhere, you should feel comfortable!
