Beauty Crazed, August 2012, Glow Medi Spa, physician supervised treatments in a luxurious spa setting
Think going to a Medi Spa will get you a lot more doctor type care than just going to a regular spa? Maybe...
Don't be fooled though, not all medi spas are created equal - they aren't regulated so who's to say there's actually anything "medi" about them?! When choosing a medi spa you want to make sure that medi type treatments are performed or supervised by an actual physician that is in the building and that they don't just have their name on the door!
Glow Medi Spa is definitely one you will want to check out. In business for over 10 years, Dr. Diane Wong, MD heads up the luxurious state-of-the-art clinic that offers therapeutic spa services with an emphasis on anti-aging including: botox, dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, IPL and laser photorejuvenation, skin tightening and toning, non-invasive fat reduction, fraxel laser treatment & skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, laser vein & acne treatments, blue light treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, medical and advanced facials and electrolysis, waxing and registered massage therapy.
If you are looking for something a little less medi and more spa, I highly recommend the Dr. Babor Collagen Booster Therapy Facial - it's one of the most unique facials I've ever had and if you've ever wondered what those balloons you covered in paper mache when you were a kid actually felt like, you'll have a chance to find out for yourself (and it's strangely relaxing). When the facial is over you will be impressed with how smooth, firm and glowing your skin looks! And now that you're in love with Dr. Babor products, you'll be able to pick them up on your way out since they carry the line - and a great one to complement the facial is:
Collagen Booster Cream - 50ml - $155 - the alternative to anti-wrinkle injections. Restructures the skin and plumps it up intensively from the inside. Reduces fine lines and wrinkles and inhibits the degradation of collagen fibers. Contains a hyaluronic acid complex, marine collagen and collagen booster protein.
