New MedSpa and Fitness Studio Concept in Doraville GA

When you look in the mirror, are you happy with what you see? Many of us would opt to change something about our appearance- whether it be fuller lips, fewer wrinkles or a younger looking face overall. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are gaining popularity all over the United States. The less invasive approach and cost effectiveness of medical spa treatments explains why more patients each year are seeking these services. Aesthetic and anti-aging treatment options without the downtime of surgery are becoming more popular than ever. If you are considering enhancing your aesthetic appeal, BodyFitMD Medspa in Doraville is the place for you!

What is a medspa anyway?

A medspa or medical spa is not the same as day spa. A medspa offers aesthetic services in a tranquil and relaxing environment, instead of the cold, sterile environment often associated with a doctor’s office. Med spa clients typically seek various minimally invasive injectable procedures such as Botox to reduce wrinkles, dermal fillers to increase the fullness of lips or reshape hollow areas along the face. Other aesthetic services such as skin care products and Latisse treatments for longer and darker eyelashes may be available as well.

How to Pick the Right Medspa for you?

There are a few things you should consider before choosing the medspa that’s right for you. Before choosing a medical spa, do your research. Ask yourself the following questions: Is the medspa relevant to my needs? Is the medspa reliable to provide the services offered? Is my out of pocket expense reasonable?

RELEVANT- Identify your needs.

It’s important to realize that all medspas are NOT created equal. Identify the trouble areas you would like to enhance or reduce. The next step is to find a medspa that offers the necessary services for your concerns.

At BodyFitMD Medspa, we offer a variety of aesthetic services to address our patients' needs. Check out our selection:

  • Botox - The Botox® Cosmetic is FDA approved to temporarily banish moderate to severe galbellar lines and crow’s feet; those are the lines and wrinkles that appear on our foreheads and the sides of our eyes as we get older.
  • Kybella - Get rid of your double chin without surgery. Kybella is also FDA approved to reduce the appearance of submental fat, which is what causes the double chin.
  • Dermal Fillers - Reshape the hollow areas on your face. Dermal fillers are the fastest, safest method of increasing volume or obtaining the full look you desire. Get remarkable results in minutes. BodyFitMD Medspa offers a combination of dermal fillers including the FDA approved dermal fillers Juvederm, Volbella and Voluma.
  • Juvederm - If smooth skin is the result you’re after, Juvederm is exactly the product for you. Juvederm is one of the top performing hyaluronic acid fillers in the U.S. Its entire product line is used to enhance your skin’s natural look, whether lifting, smoothing or plumping those undesirable areas.
  • Voluma - As a natural part of the aging process, our skin becomes less firm which causes it to take on a more “flat” appearance. Voluma, however, helps to restore the shape and placement of your cheeks. It is the newest hyaluronic acid injectable gel in the Juvederm product line.
  • Volbella - Say goodbye to those wrinkles around your mouth. This beauty product can also be used to increase the fullness of your lips. Volbella is a non-surgical enhancing treatment designed specifically to plump and soften the lips and minimize the appearance of lines around the mouth.
  • Latisse - Long, dark, thick eyelashes are sexy. Put away the fake lashes and use this FDA-approved prescription treatment to grow your own luxurious lashes. The main ingredient in Latissee is Bimatoprost, which lengthens the growth period for the lash follicles.

RELIABILITY- The Do’s and the Don’ts of Choosing the Right Medspa

When it comes to getting the best skin care products and services, DO look for MedSpas that have an on-site, licensed and certified supervising physician.

DON’T be afraid to ask questions! Ask about the credentials of the medical physician in charge of the medical spa facility. Does he or she have specialized training in aesthetic treatments? If not, find one that does.

DO inquire about whether the administering medical physician has training in aesthetic medicine. BodyFitMD Medspa is led by two board certified, licensed medical physicians on site to make sure each procedure yields the results you’ll love in the safe environment you need. Click their names to learn more about our medical directors, Dr. Michelle P. Wan and Dr. Heidi Klein.

At BodyFitMD Medspa, we show empathy when our clients have the nervous jitters, especially before completing an initial procedure. Our staff is trained to answer all of your questions. We thoroughly explain each procedure, discuss our products, the potential side effects and the ultimate desired outcome. Post procedure care instructions will also be provided. Our job is to make you feel comfortable and answer any questions you may have. The BodyFitMD team is here to help you every step of the way.

REASONABLE- Are the costs of the cosmetic treatment you want affordable?

Do you know the average cost for the cosmetic treatment you are looking to purchase? The amount could vary based on the region in which you live or the medical physician at the medspa.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery produces an annual report to record trends and statistics related to the medical industry. Last year Botox injections topped the list as the most popular non-surgical beauty procedure.

Nonsurgical Procedures National Average Cost in 2016
Botulinum Toxin (including Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) $376
Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse) $698
Hyaluronic Acid (including Juvederm Ultra, Ultra Plus, Perlane, Restylane, Belotero) $620
Poly-L-Latic Acid (Sculpta) $923
