Medical vs Non Medical Aesthetics Clinics: What You Need to Know

Understand the Difference to Make an Informed Decision

If you’re ready to see a difference in the level of service you receive, contact The Axis Clinic now.

With new (and ever changing) techniques, it is possible to see a massive transformation in the way you look, your self confidence, and your overall wellbeing by utilising medical aesthetics.

Medical aesthetics offer a way to improve the appearance of your skin and other areas without the high cost and limitations presented by traditional medical providers. The popularity of these services is hard to overestimate because of the sheer variety of services offered and the excellent results many people experience.

With options for skin, hair, and body, including anti-wrinkle treatments, lip and dermal fillers, and facials, it is possible to have a tailor-made approach to your skin like no other. However, not all providers are equal. Some stand out because of the services offered.

Consider the difference between a medical and non-medical aesthetic clinic to determine which could offer you the best possible outcome for your specific needs.

Defining Medical Aesthetics Clinics

Medical aesthetic clinics provide care that’s medically guided. That means that the care you receive is doctor-led. The therapeutic methods selected, their application, and the overall results are determined based on your individual needs with the influence of a trusted and experienced medical doctor.

The treatments offered at a medical aesthetic clinic tend to be more specialised and exceptionally selected to be based on scientific evidence of efficacy. These treatments are more complex and often require advanced training by the practitioners. Some examples include:

In these specific areas, a professional must have ample training not just in the proper use of the technology to complete the procedure but also in determining what is the most applicable treatment.

 

In a medical aesthetics clinic, the professionals working there are typically led by a doctor. Those who are providing services are either a licensed medical doctor, nurse, or licensed practitioner that meets all of the governmental regulations for providing these services.

In the UK, those who wish to provide these high-level services must meet the requirements of the licensing agencies. That includes the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the General Medical Council (GMC). That means that the professional is trained, certified, and is proven to be able to provide the services required in a specific standard format.

Also note that not everyone on the staff will be a medical provider, but there are many professionals who will be. That includes professionals who are licensed nurses or those who have very specific training within a target area.

Key Differences Between Medical and Non-Medical Clinics

Staff Qualifications

Staff in medical clinics have advanced medical degrees and licences.

Medical Professionals vs Therapists

Both parties have education and training, but medical clinics are truly medical professionals.

Treatment Scope

Medical providers can offer more of a diagnosis-treatment process for patients.

Invasive vs Non-invasive procedures

The more invasive, the higher the risks and the limited the number of available services.

Safety and regulation

All organisations must meet safety and hygiene requirements. Some may need additional support for regulation management.

Results and expectations

The key here is that you should know what to expect and have a clear promise of what is to come.

Medical consultations and basic assessment

Medical aesthetic clinics focus heavily on providing care based on your medical needs.

Why should you choose a medical aesthetic clinic? Consider the benefits:

Better safety and expertise in the type of services you need and those that could benefit you.

Higher standards of care and safety protocols mean you’re more likely to be safe.

Expertise in handling complications can make a huge difference in your success.

Advanced treatments that are not available through other services

Personalized care—they know what you need to get the best results possible

A wider range of treatments means these providers have more options to offer you

Detailed medical consultations allow for more tailored treatments but also can help preserve your health, not just improve the way your skin looks

Post-treatment care and follow-up appointments are critical with medical providers

As you move towards making a decision, focus on the following steps to find the best provider for your needs:

– Assessing Your Needs: Learn what treatment they can offer.

– Checking Qualifications and Reviews: Verifying staff qualifications and clinic reviews through online and even social media accounts.

– Consultation Process: Thorough consultations are crucial for minimising further risks.

– Cost and Value: Compare the costs and understand the value for money (more treatments at a lower price isn’t a saving!)
