What is the Difference Between a MediSpa and a Traditional Day Spa?
MediSpas offer a variety of services that differ from a traditional day spa.
A Medispa is built to offer medical-grade skin care, chemical peels, dermal fillers, injectables and other facial treatment procedures. Each procedure is noninvasive and designed to have you in and out of the office in a single afternoon without any worry.

In doing so, Botox can heal minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Botox has been used safely for decades. Botox treatments generally last 3-4 months but can vary.
Skin Conditions Botox Treats:
-Botox only works on wrinkles caused by muscle movement also known as expression lines.
-Commonly used on the wrinkles on the upper face, such as between the brows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
What Is Dermal Filler?
Dermal fillers contain ingredients that add fullness to areas that have thinned due to aging. This is common in the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. Results vary depending on the substance/type of filler used. Some fillers last 6 months while others can last up to 2 years or longer.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatments
This treatment delivers pulses that can be adjusted to treat specific skin conditions. These pulses deeply penetrate the skin, concentrating on different colors. As the skin heats from the light, the body removes the discolored cells.
What Skin Conditions Does IPL Treat?
-Skin Rejuvenation (skin tightening)
-Red blood vessels on the nose
What To Expect: At It Is Well Healthcare the patient is our top priority therefore each patient is scheduled for a consultation where we assess your specific needs. Before we begin your IPL treatment your face will be cleansed and properly prepped. You will be given proper eyewear to protect your eyes from the light flashes. The IPL is a handheld device that we glide over the areas of concern. The pain level is very tolerable, feels like a small pinch. Typical sessions take 15-30 minutes. The total number of treatment sessions will vary depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals.
Recovery & Results: Some individuals may experience temporary discoloration and skin flaking for a few days. Other may feel like they have mild sunburn. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure for a few weeks following treatment. Results can be seen approximately two weeks after your treatment and will be fully apparent in about 3 to 4 months.
Cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small needle pricks cause the body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger.
Skin Conditions Microneedling Treats:
-Minor scarring related to aging, wounds, and acne
-Fine Lines and Wrinkles
-Reduced skin elasticity
What To Expect: Before we begin the Microneedling treatment, the area being treated will be cleansed and properly prepped. We will apply a topical numbing cream to ease discomfort that may occur. Microchannel serum will be applied to the area while the microneedling pen utilizes small needles to prick the top-layer of the epidermis, generating new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer and more toned skin.
Recovery & Results: Essentially, there is little downtime associated with Microneedling, but most feel some tenderness afterwards. This sensation may feel like a windburn or sunburn because of the micro trauma caused to the dermal layer. Every client is different, but it may take days or weeks to heal, depending on how deep the needles pierce the skin. It is common to see additional redness on thin areas like the neck. You should avoid direct sun exposure for at least 48 hours and wear SPF daily. We highly suggest waiting to apply makeup until the next day and that you avoid places that could have a lot of germs such as swimming pools, lakes, rivers, and oceans for at least a week after your treatment.
