The Importance of a Consultation

If you are thinking about coming to a medical spa for treatments than can help improve your skin and your appearance, congratulations! You have come to the right place. Spa Black is here to help you with all the latest in FDA-approved technologies and treatments, along with relaxing spa options to make you feel and look better. But it’s still important to remember that visiting a medical spa isn’t quite the same as a “regular” spa. Doing your research before you book is important, because we believe that the better informed you are, the better we can serve you.

A medical spa is different from a standard spa. Some of the treatments we offer here are more aggressive than a run-of-the-mill facial or massage — treatments like Microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, and body treatments for things like cellulite and body toning. According to the International Medical Spa Association, any medical spa that offers these kinds of treatments and wants the designation of “medical” must be run under the strict supervision of a licensed physician. And we are. Spa Black is entirely overseen by Thomas T. Jeneby, M.D.

Dr. Jeneby is a respected and experienced plastic and cosmetic surgeon who is one of the most reputed and talented plastic surgeons in San Antonio. Thanks to Dr. Jeneby’s experience and supervision, you can be confident that our entire staff has the best and most up-to-date training and certifications. When you are in our hands, you are in the best hands.

When thinking about what kind of treatment might work for you, research can begin at home. The internet is a great place to start; there are many sources of valuable information out there. Sites like WebMD, the home pages of professional medical associations, and even Wikipedia (especially the references at the end of Wikipedia articles) offer information about treatments and what you can expect from them. As you do your research, it’s a good idea to make notes for yourself about any questions or concerns that come up as you learn about treatments. Remember: it’s your body, your skin, yourself! No question or concern is too small or insignificant. If it’s important to you, then it’s important, period.

Once you get through your research at home, it’s time to talk to the professionals. Call Spa Black to book a consultation appointment. Talking to the people who will be doing your treatment is a vital step in making sure you are comfortable with everything that will be happening. Even the most diligent researcher is going to have questions, and we are here to give you those answers.

As we mentioned earlier, medical spas are different. Many of our treatments involve high-tech tools such as lasers (for skin rejuvenation, hair removal, etc) as well as injectable agents (like Botox and dermal fillers) and body services that treat issues like stubborn fat and cellulite. Talking to one of our highly-trained professionals will offer you a detailed overview you might not be able to get otherwise. Plus, we are here to help you determine that the treatment you are considering is the right one for you, and to offer alternatives in case it’s not the best choice.

Our knowledge and experience is also important because every procedure isn’t right for every person. There are factors that must be taken into consideration before performing medical spa treatments, and sometimes you, as the customer, aren’t completely able to figure that out on your own. When you have a consultation with one of our medical spa staff members, we detail everything you need to know about whatever procedure you are considering. If there are precautions to consider, we will explain them. And we are the most-informed when it comes to the actual results you will see, which may be different from what you initially expected. All of your questions will be answered, and you will have all the right information to make an informed decision. And if it turns out the treatment you wanted isn’t the best one for you, we are here to help you find an alternative.

Research, information, experience, and trust — these are the things you can and should expect from your medical spa. At Spa Black, that is what we strive to give you, along with the best possible results! Call us today. We can’t wait to talk to you.
