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.
Alexis Baily, Licensed Esthetician
Born and raised in Delaware & a natural passion for helping others, Alexis started my professional career obtaining a degree in Human Services with the intent of becoming a therapist. She’s spent the last six years of her career working in Human Resources for Healthcare. At the age of seventeen Alexis began working at a local, full-service salon & spa, where her love for skin therapy amplified. After ten years of dedication to the salon & struggling with adult cystic acne herself, she decided it was time to combine her passion for helping others & skin therapy to become a Licensed Esthetician. Alexis graduated from the Academy of Massage & Bodywork located in Bear, DE and obtained her certification in comprehensive Laser treatments from the Institute for Laser Medicine.
I can’t wait to make you feel beautiful in your own skin & start your skin care journey with you! I know how much it can affect your mental health & wellness.– Alexis B

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)Treatment
What is IPL Treatment?
– 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.
What Is Microneedling?
-This is a 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:
-This is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no downtime for recovery. It is also considered safe for most patients who are in overall good health and for patients with darker skin tone.
-The procedure usually takes 10-20 minutes depending on how big the area. Most people need 4-6 treatments to see a difference.
-First you will get a numbing cream smoothed onto the face so that you don’t feel the needle pricks. Then a pen shaped tool with tiny needles will be moved around the face. This does cause small cuts in the skin, which causes a small bit of bleeding.
-Most people get microneedling on the face, but it can also be done on other parts of the body such as your stomach or thighs.
Recovery and Results:
-It may take days or weeks to heal, depending on how deep the needles pierce the skin.
-You may experience some minor pain, redness, or skin flaking for a few days after your treatment.
-After your procedure it is important to keep your skin clean and dry. 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.
