Setting the Medspa Standard
Fresh Image Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Center sets the medspa gold standard
You don’t ask a dentist for a haircut. You wouldn’t expect a lawyer to fix your car. You can’t count on an architect to teach economics.
When it comes to aligning the right professional with the right job, expertise in the field should always guide your decision. This is precisely why individuals looking for medical spa treatments should seek out a clinic that exceeds industry compliance — and customer expectations.
A medical spa (medspa) specializes in non-invasive, non-surgical aesthetic procedures performed by qualified practitioners who are supervised by a licensed physician. While these guidelines seem quite clear, too many medspas take liberty with that definition, operating just inside the legal requirements. Some require little training for their clinicians; others function with a physician who only visits the clinic occasionally.
Although savvy individuals can be trained to perform these skin care procedures, only a licensed professional — as in a licensed medical esthetician or a licensed nurse practitioner — should be the one you’re looking at to perform your procedure.
There are more than 4,200 medspas in operation in the United States, and Texas leads the nation with the most. These facts mean that making your selection requires knowledge of the procedures available, level of staff expertise and training, and level of legal and industry compliance. Here are five reasons why Fresh Image Cosmetic Surgery Center sets the gold standard for medspas.
No. 5: We Understand Laser Technology
Lasers are a relatively new innovation for skin treatment. Our trained staff understands their properties, from the different types (ablative and non-ablative) to how the various wavelengths target the various layers of skin tissue.
No. 4: You Get What You Pay For
Our medical esthetician and nurse practitioner at Fresh Image are medically trained. While it’s true that some medspas charge less for their procedures, this may be because their practitioners are not as well trained or specialized as the professionals at our clinic.
No. 3: 15 Reasons to Glow
We offer 15 unique skin treatments that can be customized to your exact needs. Our professionals are also trained on ways to combine treatments to get phenomenal results.
No. 2: 10,000 Surgeries and Counting
Dr. John Standefer is a Dallas surgeon who has performed more than 10,000 facial cosmetic surgeries. Dr. Standefer works onsite full-time. He’s also actively involved in the clinic’s medspa procedures and supervises all practitioners.
No. 1: We Know Skin
Our trained and experienced medical professionals are educated about skin anatomy, how lasers affect it, and all aspects of the pigmentary system (pigment cell biology and disorders).
Whether you want to annihilate wrinkles, cover up discoloration, or give your skin a hydrating boost, our medspa offers a comprehensive menu of treatments to help patients across their continuum of needs. Some of our most popular treatments empower patients to:
- Experience Noticeable Skin Improvement: SkinTyte is a customized treatment that uses heat and pulsed light technology to promote collagen and initiate the body’s natural healing process, which then creates new collagen. Downtime: none
- Boost That Youthful Glow: Halo is a customizable laser treatment that combines dermal rejuvenation and epidermal renewal to combat discoloration, sun damage, melasma, and the visible signs of aging. Downtime: 1-4 days
- Stimulate Collagen and Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles and Scars: Infini Fractional Radiofrequency Microneedling stimulates the body’s natural collagen and healing processes. The treatment uses microneedles to send radiofrequency energy to the dermis to encourage collagen growth. This painless procedure tightens skin tissue as well. Downtime: 1-3 days
- Target Wrinkles, Scars, an Pigment Problems: Laser Skin Resurfacing and Skin Tightening allows for precise treatment on a specific area of the face or body. Fractional radiofrequency is used to deliver energy at various tissue depth to promote the production of collagen and elastin fiber (for stretch and elasticity), and to tighten the tissue. The procedure is ideal for facial lines and wrinkles; scars from acne, surgery, or burns; aged or sun damaged skin; age spots; birthmarks; and uneven tone and texture. Downtime: 1-7 days
