Additional M Spa FAQs
How do I know which treatment is right for my skin?
With the variety of aesthetic treatments available at M Spa, our team understands it can be difficult to decide the best approach for your goals, skin type, and unique needs. Fortunately, in addition to conducting an in-depth consultation with our skincare professionals, our practice also uses state-of-the-art VISIA® skin analysis technology to help ensure your treatment plan is custom-tailored to address the specific concerns affecting your skin. This software can identify large pores, wrinkles, and brown spots, as well as areas of redness, rough texture, and hyperpigmentation to more precisely identify the best treatment for you. Rest assured that our team will be there to evaluate your needs and answer all of your questions during treatment.
Do med spa treatments use anesthesia?
Most med spa treatments do not use anesthesia, although there are many services in which a local numbing agent can be applied to improve patient comfort during your appointment. Topical anesthesia can be utilized prior to injections, microneedling, or other minimally invasive procedures depending on your preferences and comfort levels. In general, many patients do not feel the need to receive anesthesia and report little to no discomfort during med spa treatments.
Will my treatment require me to take off from work?
No, the treatments performed at M Spa usually require little to no downtime (if any) and most patients do not have to take time off from work. In fact, some services are so quick and convenient, they can be performed during one’s lunch hour with no recovery time necessary afterwards. The most common after-treatment reactions are swelling, redness, and mild bruising, depending on the nature of your treatment plan. Our team will fully inform you of what you can expect with regard to aftercare.
Does insurance cover any med spa treatments?
Aesthetic med spa treatments are not considered medically necessary, and therefore, are not typically eligible for insurance coverage. However, M Spa strives to make our services accessible to all and patient financing is available for qualified patients via CareCredit®, ALPHAEON® Credit, and Prosper® Healthcare Lending. These reputable healthcare lending companies offer approved patients a range of flexible payment plans to choose from, and are often utilized for cosmetic treatments and procedures. Please don’t hesitate to call our Reno-area office for more information about treatment costs or our financing options.
Where do aesthetic treatments take place?
All of our treatments at M Spa take place in-office at our private facility. Our luxury med spa was built from the ground up to provide patients with the ability to achieve their cosmetic goals with the utmost comfort, safety, privacy, and warmth. We also share a location with the surgical side of our practice, McCormack Plastic Surgery, to help ensure our facility is fully-equipped to address your needs and held to the highest standards of safety and sanitization. Dr. Tiffany McCormack, our board-certified plastic surgeon, is also available on-site, giving patients the peace of mind of undergoing their treatment at a physician-led facility.
