By: Sharon Francis

When you find yourself feeling jaded and want an uplifting and rejuvenating experience then a retreat to a medical day spa may be just the thing you are in need of. Medical day spas are becoming incresingly popular and there are many more complex treatments to help you feel and look younger that you may not find at your every day spa. Medical peels, botox injections and photo facials are all treatments that you can consider having. If you have medical records to hand you may have to produced them at the initial consultation so dont forget them. Some spas may ask for an initial consultation before you book the treatment.


There are two very popular treatments that can be found at a medical day spa:


Botox injections: A much used treatment initially by celebrities but now is far more popular with the general public. Botox treatments are common place all over the country and is a treatment offered by most medical day spas. A single botox treatment can make a huge difference to the apperance of your skin. Although botox gives wonderful results it is not permanent. The effects will last for about four months an then the procedure needs to be repeated. Before you start you may want to think about you budget especially for repeat visits. Do not go anywhere other than a respectable medical day spa with a proven track record to have this treatment done...here's why...


Botox is a trade name and not the name of the substance that is injected.? botox is derived from the botulinum toxin which is a neurotoxin protein. Botox, when used in minute amounts causes the facial muscle to paralyse preventing it from contracting, that is how the wrinkles then are not so visible. Botox will not eradicate damage through sun. Before you start a Botox treatment you must talk to a medical professional so you are fully aware of any side effects.


Medical peels and microdermabrasion: Medical microdermabrasion is a non surgical method of rejuvenation without the use of lasers and chemicals and is a modern treatment that is virtually painless and can be used in conjuction with other treatments.


If you are someone who suffers from blemishes, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles or problem skin then peels or microdermabrasion could be the treatment for you. You will find these treatments easily inmany medical day spas.


If you elect to have a medical peel treatment then the top most layer is removed so you may experience a burning sensation ... this means it is workin.? There are three choices of chemicals that can be used, in order of strength,? mild are alphahydroxy acids (AHA's), medium are trichloracetic acids (TCA's) and strongest are phenols. The result is a smoother, younger looking skin. The consultant should be able to assess whether a medical peel is a suitable treatment for you.


Many medical day spas in the country offer these two methods of treatment. Booking an appointment is easy but bear in mind, as mentioned earlier, they will want to assess you first to make sure you are getting the best treatment for you.


So...if you want to relax and unwind and take the spa experience one step further then a visit to a medical day spa is definitely worth consideration. You could have a new lease of life!
