Why Should You Get Cosmetic Treatments at a Medical Practice?

cosmetic treatments at medical practice

We often have people ask about why they should visit a medical practice like DermaSpa at Bend Dermatology for cosmetic dermatology procedures and treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic, microneedling, and more. Here are three reasons that you should consider a medical practice instead of a spa:

  • There is a Dermatologist available onsite.

Bend Dermatology’s talented, skilled and experienced Providers who often provide cosmetic treatments along with our Aestheticians. Unlike a medi-spa, you have the added benefit that our onsite Board-Certified Dermatologists and Fellowship-Trained Mohs Surgeons guid the top-notch medical protocols and care at our Practice for a higher-level of medical support.

  • A dermatology practice puts your skin’s health first.

Our patients often mention that when they visit spas, they feel like treatments and recommendations they get are solely focused on their appearance. At Bend Dermatology, your skin’s health is the primary concern and all recommendations stem from that focus. 

Of course, we want all of our patients to look and feel their best in their skin, but we recognize that outward skin conditions can often be a symptom of underlying health issues. That’s why our team works with you to customize solutions based on your skin, your skin care goals, and your overall health and well-being.

  • A medical practice has clinical guidelines that spas don’t have to follow.

As a medical dermatological provider, there are clinical guidelines that Bend Dermatology’s DermaSpa follows. Regular medical spas don’t have the same guidelines to adhere to, so there is usually less oversight and consistency in visiting one. Some of the most effective treatments require medical clearance as well, which is why having experienced, licensed Providers in a medical dermatology setting makes a big difference in your skin care experience.

The experience level of our Providers is stellar, with ongoing training, extensive skin care knowledge, and a deep understanding of skin reactions. 

Your skin is important, so when you’re spending money to care for it, you want to make sure it’s in the hands of knowledgeable Dermatological Providers. Learn more about Bend Dermatology’s team here.
