We understand that not everyone knows the 4-1-1 on Medspas, so we decided we’d share a few of the most common misconceptions about Medspas and debunk all the rumors!⁣⁠ ⁣⁠

Misconception 1 —⁣⁠ 👉🏼 A Medspa is a spa⁣⁠ ⁣⁠
Truth is Medspas are actually Medical Practices, just like any other doctor’s office where you would go for Medical treatments.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠

Misconception 2 —⁣⁠ 👉🏼 It’s okay to be treated without seeing a Doctor, Physician’s Assistant or Nurse Practitioner⁣ first⁠. ⁣⁠
Again, going back to Medspas being Medical Practices. All services that are medical procedures and require a prescription, the patient must be seen by someone with prescriptive authority prior to treatment. You probably wouldn’t go to your OBGYN and have the office manager do the exam. ⁣⁠

Misconception 3 —⁣⁠ 👉🏼 Non-invasive treatments are not Medical procedures⁣⁠.
The use of any FDA approved medical devices and/or medications make the treatment a medical procedure… Yup, that includes cool sculpting and skin pen micro-needling!⁣⁠

[While we’re on the train of misconceptions, we thought we’d throw these ones in too.]⁣⁠ ⁣⁠

Misconception 4 —⁣⁠ 👉🏼 Getting Botox and/or Filler will immediately make you look “overdone.”
At Rejuvenate Austin, we believe injectables should be undetectable. ⁣⁠

Misconception 5 —⁣⁠ 👉🏼 Getting preventative Botox will cause your face to sag as you age⁣⁠.
This is SO untrue! The muscles used for facial expression DO NOT structurally support the skin. The SMAS (Superficial muscular aponeurotic system) is a large portion of the structural support for the skin. The SMAS is not affected by Botox, and the other factor is how much collagen and elastin is in the skin.⁣⁠ ⁣⁠
