Medical Aesthetics vs. Beauty Salons & Spas

At Meyer Aesthetics we are proud to be a clinic, offering the very highest standard of science-backed beauty and anti-aging treatments. With so many beauty salons and spas offering cosmetic treatments, it’s important to understand the differences between Medical Aesthetics versus a beauty salon or spa.

Medical Aesthetics such as Meyer Aesthetics is overseen by a surgeon or qualified physician who will oversee the clinical staff in their training and administering of medical treatments such as anti-aging injectables, and laser treatments. In our case, the esteemed Dr Johan Meyer is behind every service we offer, ensuring the highest possible standard of treatment available.

Generally speaking, Medical Aesthetics operate under strict governing body guidelines and are held to a higher standard of accountability than a beauty salon or spa.

Due to their higher level of staff qualification and training, Medical Aesthetics can often offer treatments, procedures and equipment that are of a higher grade, standard and strength to those offered in salons and spas. As a result, the outcomes in Medical Aesthetics can be more pronounced. Active ingredients in day spa products are generally less potent than the medical grade products used in a Medical Aesthetics.

Generally speaking, a salon or day spa is focused on beauty and relaxation and, while offering an array of non-medical skin and body treatments; whereas a Medical Aesthetics focuses more on medical-grade skincare.

While Medical Aesthetics such as Meyer Aesthetics offer a relaxing, luxurious experience, their focus is always firmly on using scientifically-proven treatments and products to produce real results.

It’s all about choosing what is best for your needs. If you are looking for a relaxing day out, a day spa is perfect. If you are looking for expert skincare and anti-aging treatments that deliver real results, you need to choose a Medical Aesthetics.

Choosing the Right Medical Aesthetics

  • Recommendations are the first step and a great way to see the results from someone who has already gone through the process.
  • If an offer for a treatment is too good to be true, it probably is. Non invasive beauty treatments are a high end product. The equipment is costly, the training has been an investment of time and money and some treatments can take hours to perform.
  • Be wary of cheap products used in the treatments. There are many brands out there, but we also have the power of the internet to investigate some of the products that you find on the aesthetician’s table. Don’t be shy to ask the names of the products and jot them down.
  • Look for qualifications on the wall or displayed. Professionals put a lot of time and effort into their training and are proud to show it off.
  • Do some research. We all have the power of internet in our hands and can do some research on medical aesthetic centers, salons and aestheticians.
