What Is a Medical Spa?
A MedSpa is a fusion of a medical clinic and a day spa. It is overseen by a medical physician, often a plastic surgeon, with specialized training and experience in performing treatments and procedures that diminish the signs of aging while restoring a more youthful and healthy appearance.
These treatments are performed on many areas of the body and help to smooth wrinkles and restore youthful skin. MedSpa treatments are typically minimal and non-invasive in their performance and offer an effective alternative to cosmetic surgery procedures.
Benefits of MedSpa Services
One of the main advantages of MedSpa services is that they are an excellent alternative to invasive surgical procedures. Other benefits include:

Who Is the Ideal Candidate for MedSpa Services?
Men and women seek out MedSpa services when they want to make some minor corrections or diminish visible signs of aging but do not want to go through the rigorous process of invasive surgeries and recoveries. Depending on the treatment, many MedSpa services take a short time to complete and offer immediate results that improve over time.
What Do I Need to Do Before MedSpa Services?
The preparation for MedSpa services is minimal. Many facial treatments require no preparation while other treatments may require patients to avoid different medications, smoking and other suggestions to enhance the outcome of their treatments.
What Should I Expect on The Day of MedSpa Services?
MedSpa services are performed in a spa-like setting that is relaxing yet rejuvenating. With MedSpa services, each treatment has a different objective. The goal is to meet and exceed expectations while delivering superior service resulting in a fresher and younger look.
How Long Does It Take to Perform MedSpa Services?
Each MedSpa treatment is different and may take different amounts of time to complete. Most treatments are accomplished in about an hour. In fact, it is common for people to receive treatments during lunch time away from their offices. During a consultation, we provide patients with a general amount of time to expect for the completion of the treatment.
What to Expect After MedSpa Services
For most MedSpa services, there is no recovery or downtime following treatments. Some may leave a small amount of redness or swelling, but these minor side effects resolve themselves with a day or so. We provide patients with detailed instructions about what to expect after MedSpa services so that they receive all the benefits the treatments have to offer.
When Will I See the Results?
With most MedSpa services and treatments, the results are immediately noticeable and get better over time. Some laser treatments may take several days for the results to become noticeable whereas those from dermal fillers and injectables are more instant. But as time progresses, the results from MedSpa treatments improve over the weeks following the treatments.
How Long Will the Results of MedSpa Services Last?
The results of MedSpa treatments vary depending on the treatment. Most treatments require care and continued treatments to maintain the positive results.
How Much Do MedSpa Services Cost in Charleston?
The cost of MedSpa services varies with each treatment. It is based on the treatment itself, the extent of the area being treated, how many treatments it takes to achieve the desired look and whether other services are performed at the same time. We review the costs during a consultation with Dr. Widenhouse as well as go over payment options including financing.
