WHAT IS THE DIFFERENT BETWEEN A MEDICAL SPA AND A SPA?
Medical spas operate under the supervision of a medical doctor. Medical Spas offer non-surgical treatments in a relaxing environment. They use state of the art technological treatments addressing issues lying under the skins surface. All products are physician grade and generally penetrate deeper in your skin which can make a difference in the texture, tone and pigmentation. Examples of treatments available at a medical spa include laser skin rejuvenation, injectable wrinkle fillers, BOTOX®, laser hair removal, and more. A spa or day spa can offer only surface level cosmetic treatments such as facials. They focus on relaxation and beauty. A medical spa focuses on long-term results requiring a doctor’s expertise.
WHAT DOES THE TERMS INVASIVE PROCEDURES AND NON-INVASIVE PROCEDURES MEAN?
Invasive surgery involves large incisions which enable a doctor to work with their hands inside a patient while non-invasive surgery uses only small incisions and tiny instruments. Examples of non-invasive procedures are Botox® treatments, filler treatments and laser treatments.
WHEN SPEAKING ABOUT LASER PROCEDURES, JOULES ARE WHAT?
The joule (pronounced DJOOL) is the standard unit of energy in electronics and general scientific applications. One joule is defined as the amount of energy exerted when a force of one newton is applied over a displacement of one meter. One joule is the equivalent of one watt of power radiated or dissipated for one second.
One joule in everyday life is approximately: the energy required to lift a small apple one metre straight up or the energy released when that same apple falls one metre to the ground. Definition from Wikipedia.
IS THERE SUCH THING AS THE BODY CREATING A RESISTANCE TO BOTOX®?
According to the Allergan Company, there has been no proven fact that the body builds up immunity to the product Botox®.
