When to Choose a Medical Spa


People come to us from areas such as Clifton Park, Schenectady, and Saratoga Springs for advanced plastic surgery procedures because they understand the benefit of having a team of board-certified plastic surgeons working toward their goals. We took the same approach of combining the highest quality treatments and a staff of experienced professionals when we created Spa One, our new medical spa.

It’s not surprising that with this development comes a number of questions regarding the phrase “medical spa,” and how such a facility differs from a traditional day spa. Spa One provides many of the popular services offered at day spas including spray tans, professional makeup, and eyelash extensions, but we also provide innovative therapies that require the skills of an experienced specialist to create natural-looking results in a safe way.

Whether you’re interested in non-surgical body contouring with CoolSculpting® or you’re looking to rejuvenate your facial appearance with one of our state-of-the-art laser treatments, you can feel comfortable knowing that all of our services were hand-selected by our team of on-site plastic surgeons.

The distinction between types of spas can be tough to discern at times, but it can be more difficult to decide when it’s time to visit a plastic surgery practice over a medical spa because each kind of facility treats similar conditions. Each patient’s needs are unique, and the best way to determine whether or not you’re ready for cosmetic surgery is through a private consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. He or she will be able to help you in creating a custom treatment plan that could include medical spa or surgical procedures.

    Unfortunately the changes made to your medical spa when you moved to your new location are not in keeping with the term “medical spa”. It is my opinion that in an effort to develop new revenue streams you have placed yourselves in the same category as a high end spa, Jean Paul, Complextions or maybe Kimberlys. I have been a patient of Dr. Hargrave for several years and have also been seeing Marika for the last few years in the medical spa. While the services Marika provides are professional and first class I am extremely disappointed with the changes made.
