The summer season has arrived and the heatwave is slowly taking over everywhere. When we talk about heatwave, sunstroke can be expected as many people, young and old, fall prey to it.
Thankfully, we have many salons and medical spas at our disposal that give us a rich mineral bath with powerful medicinal quality to relax our muscles and get rid of physical and mental stress.
Stress has become a common factor in all working-class individuals whether it is blue-collar or white collared ones, which is why they want respite from a good day’s work and hit the massage parlor or medical spa to cool things down.
As the aforementioned title has made it clear, this is going to be a briefing about medical spa and the future of dermatology without resorting put one up or down over the other but just to put out an objective comparison of both.
So we’ll start with spa as it is something that all readers would have heard about. It is defined as a place where you get a medicinal bath with spring/seawater that has highly rich content of minerals and medicinal properties.
A med spa has many other facilities like facial, body massage, salon treatment and many others but the main highlight is the medicinal bath, which is why it is so popular all over the world.
Dermatology is a branch of medicine that deals with skin related issues that involves both surgical aspects as well as medical study. A doctor/surgeon that deals with skin diseases is called a dermatologist.
Dermatology also specializes in hair and nail problems as well. Its history dates back to the 18th century and it soon rose to be a phenomenon of sorts that proved to be a boon for people that were dealing with skin diseases for a long period of time.
20th century is the period when dermatology became a lucrative business for dermatologists because the sheer number of patients with skin problems grew with each passing day.
Cosmetic industry is in its booming phase where consumers get their money’s worth right from injections to organic treatment and not just medicines and tablets that contain fangled chemicals that do more harm than good.
There are some that assume that medical spa and dermatology are similar and yes it is true to a certain extent but the differences too are huge and deserve a mention.
As an example, you can get treatment and services in a medical spa if you’re grappling with cosmetic problems. You are acquainted with aestheticians to help you out instead of dermatologists that offer Ayurvedic treatment.
The revenue of an average medical spa is $5 million so one can imagine what bigger ones will generate. The Skin & Laser Center NJ itself generates $20 million annually and its treatment involves laser hair removal, body sculpting, and fillers.
So it can be said that dermatology has a great future ahead with no reason to lose business to the spa industry because they are both mutually exclusive to one another and have a massive fan following.
