A med spa in Houston will combine clinical medicine with luxury. Day spas generally concentrate on relaxation and offers services to make you look better. However, they do not actually make your skin better in the long run, which is something a med spa does offer. Where you go will often be determined by the type of treatment you want to have.

What is a Med Spa?

A med spa performs medical aesthetic procedures that are performed in a spa-like environment that is relaxing. A medical doctor is on site to oversee all of the procedures that are given and performs some of them him or herself. A med spa provides patients with true results to fix problems on the skin instead of just making the skin look better for a short amount of time. Professional medical aestheticians are thoroughly trained to provide patients with a customized procedure so they are given the best results possible for them.

What is a Day Spa?

A day spa concentrates on giving massages, facials, body wraps, manicures, and pedicures. They are superficial treatments that do not last for an extended period of them. They do not actually fix any problems that are causing the skin to look tired and dull. Instead, they are given a quick fix so the client looks better when they walk out of their doors. A day spa is a place for clients to relax and take time for themselves.

If you want a cosmetic procedure, a med spa is the place to go. They offer procedures ranging from laser tattoo removal, microdmerabrasion, to Botox injections. Visiting a med spa and speaking with a cosmetic surgeon or professional doctor can help you determine which treatments they have to offer can benefit you. They are able to reduce wrinkles, get rid of stretch marks, acne, and dull skin by fixing what is causing the problem.


Bella Rosa, a Houston Med Spa, wants to make the experience their patients have when visiting them as comfortable as possible. They offer many different treatments for the skin and body, including pixel skin resurfacing, Juvederm, and microdermabrasion in Houston.
