How to Know You're in Good Hands With Your Medical Aesthetician
If you have decided to take advantage of modern, effective medical aesthetic procedures to help you look and feel your personal best, choosing an exceptional medical aesthetics spa for your care is half the battle in achieving your goals. So, how do you navigate through so many choices to find the med-spa that is best for your needs? We've put together some tips to help you make the right choice in achieving your aesthetic goals.
Create a List of Possibilities
Making a list of med-spas in your area that you consider as possible providers of your care is the first step in building the foundation for good comparisons. This can be done by asking people for recommendations – your personal physician, for instance, or friends or family members you can rely on to be discreet. You will also find excellent information online through clinic websites, as well as consumer reviews and medical aesthetics journals and articles.
Research, Research, Research
Once you have a list of potential practitioners, researching each one is your next step. Important criteria to consider are:
- The education levels of medical directors, practitioners and support staff -- This tops the list of important factors to consider when choosing the right clinic for your needs. The medical aesthetics spa you choose should employ staff members who are highly trained in this specialized field. Also, since the field is continually evolving, make sure they are committed to continued education in emerging procedures, products and techniques.
- Experience -- This is also essential to excellent care, so you'll want your practitioners to have years of practical experience under their belts. If you already have an idea of the treatments and/or procedures you wish to pursue, ask how often they've performed them and whether or not they are willing to provide before and after photos of their work.
- Reputation -- Spas that make your short list should have also earned an excellent reputation in your community for quality care and exceptional results.
This information can be obtained via a phone call to spas on your list to discuss training, credentials and experience. Speaking to local medical professionals can also be very helpful in researching a particular medi-spa's reputation and results. The experience of current or former patients can also offer insight into care quality and reputation, so be sure to search online for consumer reviews.
Make Personal Visits
Your next step is to visit each med-spa that ranks well in the above-mentioned factors. So what should you be looking for? The spa you choose should be clean, comfortable, modern and well-equipped. Staff should be professional, welcoming and open. They should listen, and address your questions and concerns with patience and consideration. These factors indicate that a practitioner values clients and is committed to providing top-quality, personalized care.
