The IYAC Medspa had a lot of interest when it opened in July of 2018. And with all the excitement came questions. Good questions. Here is what we were asked the most.
Medspa – what’s a Medspa?
A medspa, or medical spa, offers medical beauty treatments in a tranquil setting without a “doctor’s office” feel. The products, treatments and services are created by doctors and administered by therapists. That means you get the benefit of a doctor’s expertise without the associated costs.
Does a Medspa offer the same things as a regular spa?
Not exactly. The IYAC Medspa offers clinical-grade facials (which include services like microdermabrasion, radiofrequency and lasers) as well as slimming services and IYAC’s popular range of cosmeceuticals. You won’t, however, find services like body massages or wraps, manicures, pedicures or waxing services.
Why did you open it?
Clients were requesting more facials and slimming treatments than ever before. For these treatments, you don’t necessarily need to see a doctor at every visit. So we decided to open a separate spa for these treatments with the look and feel of a spa, rather than a clinic. The Medspa is soothing and relaxing – think mood lighting instead of bright white medical lighting – and is designed to provide a total body-and-mind experience.
How has the Medspa affected IYAC?
Bookings for Medspa services are easier to get now as we have more appointment times. The new space also allowed us to introduce new facials and treatments like BellaLux LED, one of the most powerful LED systems in the world.
