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.
