Japanese Research Shows Benefits of Medical Spa Services

Another good reason to check us out at Envision!

Recent research from Japan has revealed there is a strong statistical connection between accessing medical spa services and enhanced feelings of physical and mental wellness.

Not only did the 3,300 subjects in this sizable study report enjoying increased positivity, but also experienced more satisfying, restful sleep at night. Quality of sleep is a vital metric for measuring perceived quality of life in individuals. Interestingly, those who used medical spa services also called in sick to work less often than those who did not receive spa-provided wellness treatments.
The study researched the impact of medical spa services such as:

  • Laser hair removal
  • Multi-approach blemish reduction
  • Injectable line filling
  • Wrinkle remediation
  • Acne therapies
  • Fat deposit minimization

Although researchers discovered various non-medical stress-reduction therapies did provide some benefit for de-stressing and relaxation, medical spa services accounted for more satisfaction with self-image issues and actual physical health concerns. Whereas the "feel good" feeling from a day of relaxation was enjoyable, it did not provide lasting effects. This only makes sense, of course, since feelings of relaxation are fragile and can be instantly whisked away by a bad day, while noticeable improvements to a person's self-image from, say, recapturing a more youthful appearance, provides long-term satisfaction and happiness.

There are many excellent reasons to seek out a medically-directed, professionally staffed spa such as Envision when considering any invasive treatments such as Botox, Juvederm or Microdermabrasion. Here are just a few of the reasons why:

  • Medical spa therapies are conducted in a clinical setting with levels of cleanliness and sterility which befits the level and complexity of treatments employed. It is that very clinical atmosphere which medical spa clients find so comforting, since their surroundings inform them they are in well-trained hands.
  • Medical spa therapists have proven proficiencies that communicate professional expertise to their clients. This encourages medical spa clients to feel confident in the process and establish the all-important trust between patient and therapist.
  • Medical spas offer a wide range of procedures to their clients, including chemical peels, cryopolysis, (CoolSculpting) laser applications and aggressive acne treatments like Microdermabrasion which are unavailable in non-medical settings. Envision, however, does offer some less clinical services including both relaxation massage, as well as more intense deep tissue and hot stone massage options..

In retrospect, it should have come as no surprise the researchers were convinced medical spa services significantly improved people's outlook and their perceived quality of life. Now all we have to do is convince you!
