Med spa treatments can be a great way to give yourself a boost, with popular options including facials, microdermabrasion and laser hair removal. However, with Halloween around the corner, now seems like a good time to warn you off some of the more…spooky…treatments available at various med spas.
Avoid a ghoulish experience by staying away from these 3 spooky med spa treatments and only ever enlisting the services of a licensed practitioner.
1. Mummy Mask
Wrapping your full head in bandages isn’t a good look for anyone, except perhaps a movie extra or two. If you do feel that your skin needs a little pick-me-up, speak to a professional about med spa treatments. Perhaps a rejuvenating mask could be more beneficial than suffocating bandages.
2. Vampire Facial
You will, no doubt, agree that a facial can be an incredibly relaxing experience. The fresh-faced feeling you get after the treatment is unbeatable, but don’t risk your skin (and your blood) by indulging in a vampire facial. Have your med spa treatment administered by a professional rather than Count Dracula.
3. Frankenstein’s Electric Current Facial
Electric currents were essential when Dr. Frankenstein wanted to reanimate his monster and micro currents also have their place in certain med spa treatments. However, we would strongly advise going more medical spa and less Frankenstein’s laboratory. Avoiding slightly eccentric pseudo-doctors may result in a better outcome for you.
On a more positive Halloween note, pumpkins can have great beauty benefits, such as your very own pumpkin spice glow.
