Five Things to Look For in a Medical Spa

Five Things to Look For in a Medical Spa

Medical spas offer unique services that require the care of a medically trained practitioner to the provider. Services in medical spas may include medical weight loss, injectables, body contouring, and other similar aesthetic procedures. Look into these five criteria to ensure that you find a quality medical spa to offer you the aesthetic services you need.

1. Services That Match Your Needs

What types of services do you need? While injections and body contouring are popular aesthetic procedures, not all medical spas offer these. Determine the exact procedures that you need from a medical spa and find a facility that has the staff to offer those services.

Additionally, look for a facility that specializes in the services you need. For instance, if you need Botox injections, you will need to return regularly for those injections to maintain the results you want. Facilities that specialize in injections have staff members that perform more of these services than facilities that only offer injectables occasionally.

2. Licensing of Services from the Medical Spa

Licensing is another important aspect of a medical spa. Standard spas do not offer medical-grade products or services. For medical spas to offer the types of care they do, they must have staff members with medical licenses, such as doctors or nurses. Providers should also have additional education in the specific aesthetic services they perform.

3. Credentials of the Facility

The facility itself should have a proven track record of safe operations, ideally with physicians overseeing operations. When looking up the credentials of the facility, research how long the medical spa has operated. If you have specific questions about the procedures that you want, call or contact the facility online. Get all your questions and concerns answered before setting an appointment.

4. What Former Patients Have to Say

Check out former patient reviews. Look up reviews on third-party review sites, such as Yelp or Google instead of only relying on the testimonials on the facility’s website. Reviews on third-party sites don’t come with compensation and have honest views of the facility, its services, and its providers.

5. The Entire Suite of Offerings Beyond Price

While price is important, don’t rely only on the cost of services to find a medical spa. You wouldn’t choose the cheapest doctor to perform surgery on you? Instead, you would look into the doctor’s record, the facility’s features, and the doctor’s license. The same should hold true for aesthetic services at a medical spa. Focus on quality over price because your well-being depends on it.

Every person has unique needs, especially when it comes to medically provided aesthetic treatments. Your research will ensure that you find the right medical spa that has the licensing, credentialed experts, equipment, and facility amenities to meet all your specific needs.

HydraFacial FAQs

How long does the HydraFacial treatment take? Is there any downtime?

Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.

What results can I expect from HydraFacial, and how long do they last?

Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.

What add-ons to HydraFacial are available?

HydraFacial add-ons include lymphatic drainage, lip plumper, LED therapy, and booster serums. Speak to your Renova Aesthetics provider to customize your individual treatment plan.

EMSCULPT NEO – Renova Aesthetics – Revolutionary Non-Surgical Body Sculpting


EMSCULPT NEO is the first and only non-invasive, non-surgical body sculpting procedure that provides fat elimination and muscle building simultaneously in just one 30-minute session. Renova Aesthetics is one of the only EMSCULPT NEO providers in the Indianapolis area, and we have a team of licensed professionals to create a treatment plan perfect for you. Watch this short video to learn more about the EMSCULPT NEO machine, treatment, benefits, and FAQs.


EMSCULPT NEO is the revolutionary body sculpting treatment that improved on the previous EMSCULPT device by emitting both radio frequency (RF) and high intensity electromagnetic energies (HIFEM+) during treatment. This innovative combination results in the highest results of body sculpting, providing both fat reduction and muscle growth at once – in less than 30 minutes.

EMSCULPT NEO is performed using an innovative machine that provides treatment directly to the focus area and requires no downtime. First, the machine is placed directly on the focus area and uses RF heating to raise the temperature of the subcutaneous fat to the level in which fat cells are permanently damaged and slowly removed from the body – this takes about 4 minutes. Then the HIFEM+ energy causes the muscles in the area to contract at intensities that are not achievable during voluntary workout. This forces the muscle increase in the number and growth of muscle fibers and cells. 

Who is a Good Candidate for EMSCULPT NEO? What Body Areas Can be Treated with EMSCULPT NEO?


EMSCULPT NEO has broad appeal, and can treat patients up to BMI 35. This treatment is great for those looking to increase the results of their workouts by creating definition and focusing on specific problem areas. EMSCULPT NEO can be used on various body parts, such as the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and calves.

What is the downtime of EMSCULPT NEO?

There is no downtime with this procedure. You can get back to your daily routine right after the treatment.

What does EMSCULPT NEO therapy feel like?

The EMSCULPT NEO procedure is simple and easy. There is no pre-preparation required for this procedure. You will lay down while the applicators are applied over the treatment area for 30 minutes.
