Medi-spas, also known as medical spas, offer both cosmetic and esthetic services. For those with acne, medi-spas offer a unique treatment option: You can have procedures commonly performed at your dermatologist’s office done in a more serene day spa setting. Many people enjoy the comfortable atmosphere that medi-spas have, although some feel more clinical than others.

Medi-spa treatment menus vary, but some of the more common procedures that may be helpful for acne and acne scarring include:

Not all medi-spa treatments are suitable for every person. These treatments are most often used along with traditional acne medications, or after other treatment options have failed.

Medi-spas also offer treatments like Botox and other injectables, hair removal, facials and massage.

While many medi-spas offer general beautifying treatments, some specialize in one area, such as post-plastic surgery support, anti-aging, or acne treatment. Choose a medi-spa that best fits your needs.
