Not All Medspas Are Created Equal

In today's fast-paced world of aesthetics and skincare, there has been a rise of demand across the globe for less invasive rejuvinating treatments. And like so many, you may be interested in starting your own aesthetics journey. This increase in demand has lead to a surge of medspas worldwide. A medspa is a combination of an aesthetic medical center and a day spa that provides non-surgical, aesthetic medical procedures under the supervision of a licensed physician.

With the eruption of medspas across the globe coupled with horror stories sweeping social media, it's important to choose a medspa and injector you can trust. We're here to spill the beans and share some tips on how to find a medspa and injector you can trust, and naturally, we'll show you why we stand out from the crowd!

Do Your Research

The Injector

Not all medspas are created equal and not all aesthetic injectors are equally skilled. Researching an Injector's background, education, experience, and results can help make you feel more comfortable when booking your aesthetic treatments. Most medspas offer consultations, and these can come in handy for feeling a space out prior to booking an actual procedure. There are trainings and certifications behind every treatment offered, so don't be afraid to ask your clinician for their education and background. Make sure to check out websites, social media platforms, and investigate reviews. This can help you get a feel for the "vibes" of each medspa, and see if they line up with what you're looking for.

The Equipment/Product

Aesthetic treatments can be costly, and most of the time that is due to the product or equipment your clinician is using. Because the aesthetics world is under constant change, you'll want to know if your medspa is using the latest and greatest equipment for your particular service so that you get the best bang for your buck. Some medspas may have specialties, and all offer unique procedures and treatments. Having knowledge of treatments that you're interested in can help narrow down which medspa you choose.

The Service

Although your clinician should give you an in-depth summary of the procedure you're getting, including how it may work (IPL vs a CO2 laser), what it is exactly (hyaluronic acid fillers vs permanent fillers), and what you can expect as far as results, you might still want to do some due diligence. Researching the services you're interested in and comparing it to reviews and results that a medspa posts can help you understand the service and narrow down with whom you'd like it done.

About Our Medspa

The Injectors

The Lotus Medspa is owned and operated by our two injectors, Kelly Rayburn, Physician Assistant - Board Certified, who has 10+ years of experience in Medical Aesthetics and another 20+ years in Orthopaedic Surgery, and her partner, Erin Lenza, Physician Assistant - Board Certified, who has 20+ years experience in Dermatology and Aesthetics. They met during PA school at The University of Washington and have been best friends ever since!

Our dedicated team is committed to creating a friendly and personal ambiance for each person who walks through our door. We are aware of the potential apprehensions that may accompany aesthetic and cosmetic procedures, and our focus is to ensure the comfort of our clients at every stage of their experience. Whether you're here for Tox or laser hair removal, our objective is to make you feel like you're getting a treatment with your best friend - who just so happens to be a highly skilled PA Injector!

The Services

Each service is hand-picked, researched, used, and loved by the team. If it doesn't provide amazing results, we don't offer it. (The injectors often say that if they offer a new treatment it's because they're selfish and wanted to have it too...but not too selfish not to share!). Both PA Injectors are certified in every aesthetic procedure we offer, and often undergo additional trainings to be able to provide the newest and most effective treatments. Their expertise ensures that you're not just getting a service but a carefully tailored experience that caters to your unique needs.

The Products

The Lotus Injectors are picky with what products they choose to offer for a number of reasons. Whether it be the type of filler we inject, the product lines we carry, or where we source our Semaglutide, the injectors both use and continue to carry products only if they believe in it and its ingredients.

Not all medspas are created equal, and in the end choosing an injector ultimately boils down to personal choice, guided by your specific goals and circumstances. Remember too that your aesthetics journey should be as unique and extraordinary as you are.
