When it comes to medical spas in the Denver, Colorado area, you have many choices. Looking for a safe, comfortable and knowledgeable Medspa can be daunting, especially if you are new to Medspa treatments. Each spa has their own unique atmosphere, mission statement, and patient experience. Some spas pay attention to pretty details in the waiting room, while others look sterile and hospital-like. Search engines like Google and Yelp have different review and grading requirements. So, how does a new person know what is fact or fiction? A beautiful review or web page may woo you into the front door however, what are true signs of a good Medspa once you are there?
Our very own Patient Advocate, Marissa Griffanti, interviewed ten Denver Medspas recently and found big differences between all of them. She was aiming to find those within Denver Metro area that have a well-balanced team, inviting atmosphere, highly cross-trained staff and competitive pricing. Her main goal was to better understand what kind of options there are for Medspa newcomers. She interviewed staff, investigated their credentials, pricing, treatments offered, and analyzed the overall feel. Some of the spas were friendly and patient focused while many treated her like a number, never elaborating upon the questions she asked. Marissa said it was disappointing to find that some nurses couldn’t answer basic skin care questions such as, “What are the best skin care products for my skin type?” A big takeaway for Marissa was understanding that pricing for treatments and injections are all over the board. She cautions those looking for a “deal” as a few dollars extra can make a huge difference in how you are treated. This experience resulted in offering some great tips for first time Medspa goers. See Marissa’s advice below for finding a quality Medspa. We think that you will agree, Rejuvenate has all of these qualities.
