What is a Medical Spa?
Clients of Silicon Valley Aesthetic Dermatology often come to us looking for a best-in-class skin care clinic in Foster City or nearby cities. They then learn that we’re a full-service “Medical Spa,” but what – exactly – is a medical spa?
Founded by Dr. Miguel Canales, our medical spa takes luxury and skin care treatment to the next level. We’re similar to a dermatology clinic, but whereas a dermatology clinic might deal with skin diseases and truly medical ailments, we focus on the aesthetics of skin. But we’re more than just a day spa where you get a massage; yes, our environment is truly relaxing and we do our utmost to create an enjoyable, rejuvenating experience for our client, but we’re not simply luxury (like a day spa), nor a fully healthcare-focused experience (like a dermatology clinic).
From the moment you walk into our Foster City-based medical spa, you’ll note that you’re in a special place. Dr. Canales works to his utmost to bring state-of-the-art aesthetic treatments to the clinic. For example, we’re licensed to offer “injectables” such as Botox, Juvederm, or Restylane. While these are not treatments for “diseases,” they are FDA-approved cosmetic treatments that can dramatically improve your skin. The focus at our medical spa is primarily on the skin, offering other treatments such as cosmetic dermatology of all types including facials, microdermabrasians, and skin tightening. We even offer laser tattoo removal, should you have a tattoo that you now regret and are experts in the use of laser technology.
Other procedures offered at our client are the Halo Procedure, ITEL/BBL or the so-called “photo facial,” and UL therapy. The use of light is one of the more exciting developments in skin care, and our medical spa offers best-in-class light therapies.
If you’re looking for one of the top-rated medical spas on the clinic, check us out. Dr. Miguel Canales offers convenient and confidential one-on-one consultations. Call our office to schedule an initial consultation. He’ll then recommend a skin care regimen that can dramatically improve the quality of your skin. That’s what a “medical spa” is really all about – bringing best-in-class treatments to Bay Area consumers.
Our office is in Foster City, convenient to Peninsula cities such as San Mateo, Burlingame, and Redwood City. It’s worth the quick drive because you DESERVE the best skin you can have via the latest technology.
