It is no secret that the aesthetics world is saturated with med spas, cosmetic aesthetic offices and medical aesthetic offices. So, how do you know which office is best for you?
In a recent article published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, What to Look For in a Quality Med Spa, this conundrum is explored. With the increasing popularity of techniques and procedures that are less invasive than plastic surgery, there has been a significant increase in med spas and medical aesthetic offices – essentially, offices that can combine medical aesthetics, day spa and even plastic surgery options.
While there are a variety of different types of med spas, it is highly recommended that you find one that is under the supervision of a board-certified plastic surgeon. “Why?”, you ask? Because plastic surgeons are highly trained in surgical procedures AND non-surgical treatments.
At Denver Medical Aesthetics by Dr. Christine Rodgers, you will find just that. Dr. Rodgers, a board certified and highly accredited surgeon, is not only trained in every single non-surgical procedure we offer, she also oversees and approves the providers who administer those procedures in our office. Our providers work closely with Dr. Rodgers to ensure that her high expectations of the treatments and outcomes are met. Her first priority is to ensure that the patient receives the best service with the best outcome. Our providers are highly skilled in each of their expertise.

Aside from ensuring you choose an aesthetic office that is overseen by a doctor, there are other elements you should consider before moving forward with your procedure. The article discusses the need for a thorough consultation to ensure the best treatment option is chosen to address your skincare needs. At Denver Medical Aesthetics, we not only offer an in depth, in person consultation, but we also utilize tools such as Visia Facial Imaging to ensure the right treatment is selected and all concerns are addressed. Additionally, in the event that an aesthetic service is not the right treatment to reach your goals, it may be recommended that you consult with Dr. Rodgers herself for potential surgical options.
In closing, when you come to Denver Medical Aesthetics, you can be sure that you are discussing your in-depth treatment plan with extremely well-trained and passionate providers who are directly involved with Dr. Rodgers. Our goal is to ensure that every patient is treated with care, kindness, honesty and given the opportunity to reach their skincare goals.
