What is a Med Spa?

A med spa combines a traditional day spa with a medical clinic to offer specialized treatments and cosmetic services in a relaxing, welcoming facility.

Physicians run med spas; while a doctor carries out not every procedure, they are all performed under the supervision of a licensed physician, making treatments and procedures safer and with less risk of complications.

Some of the other med spa benefits include the following:

  • Med spas give you peace of mind by offering state-of-the-art, medical-grade procedures
  • Providers cannot perform these procedures without credentials and certified experience
  • Med spas can sell medical-grade skin care products to enhance further the benefits of the procedures they offer
  • Med spas educate clients on repairing skin damage, as well as on how to prevent future damage

By combining treatments with medical-grade products, med spas can help you look more rested, younger, and healthier. 

How to choose a med spa

  • When choosing a med spa, keep the following tips in mind:
  • Choose one where the doctor is present full-time
  • Choose a med spa that offers free consultations so you’re fully aware of your options, the costs, and the risks and benefits before you commit to any procedures
  • Be sure you receive a skin analysis before pursuing treatment
  • Evaluate whether the med spa offers the treatments you want
  • Find a med spa that feels relaxing because you should enjoy your time spent there working toward better skin health
  • Choose a med spa where the supervising physician is a cosmetic/plastic surgeon, as they are trained to perform surgical and non-surgical procedures with valuable aesthetic expertise

Some questions to ask a prospective med spa include:

  • How many times have you performed these specific treatments?
  • How long has the supervising doctor been working at the facility?
  • What type of training and certification do you have?
  • How involved is the supervising physician?
  • Why did you choose the products you use and sell?

Med spa treatments at Austin Cosmetic Surgery

A med spa can be the perfect solution for anyone seeking nonsurgical or minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, such as the ones found at Austin Cosmetic Surgery.


Injectables relax facial wrinkles and folds, contour the body, and improve the signs of facial fat loss by creating structure, framework, and volume for the face and lips. Two different types of injectables improve various areas of concern:

  • Neuromodulators, which relax facial muscles to prevent wrinkles from repetitive muscle movement
  • Dermal fillers, which provide volume and support in multiple facial areas

We offer the following injectables:

Facial Rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation refers to cosmetic treatments restoring your face's youthful, glowing appearance.

At our Austin med spa, we offer the following facial rejuvenation options:

Laser Treatments

Laser therapies use focused light tuned to specific wavelengths to be focused into powerful beams. Laser skin resurfacing uses a laser to improve the skin's appearance or treat minor facial flaws, but we can also use the devices for effective laser hair removal.

Our laser offerings include:

Body Contouring

Body contouring permanently eliminates fat cells without anesthesia, surgery, or downtime. It's an excellent way to achieve a sculpted silhouette for people who live active, healthy lives but have lingering fatty deposits. 

At Austin Cosmetic Surgery, we offer the following two options for body contouring:

  • BodyTite: BodyTite is an FDA-approved treatment that melts away unwanted fat and tightens loose skin in one procedure. This in-office treatment offers significant benefits as a minimally invasive, non-surgical body-contouring procedure.
  • Morpheus8 Body: Morpheus8 Body remodels and contours your skin, stimulating collagen production for impressive results. You’ll enjoy improved skin texture, brightness, sun damage correction, and tone.

Hair Restoration

These treatments restore hair or improve the appearance of hair density. We have two excellent options for hair restoration in our Austin med spa:

NeoGraft: NeoGraft harvests follicles during a Follicular Unit Extraction, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previous hair transplants, such as the strip method.

PRP Hair Preservation & Growth: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a minimally invasive technique that uses your blood’s natural growth factors to stimulate hair growth. The therapy can also regenerate your follicular cells, providing a long-lasting solution to hair loss and thinning.
