Avalon Medical Spa has long been in the business of helping people be their best selves, helping them both look and feel great. With so many medical spas to choose from, however, how can you identify the difference between them?

The short answer is pretty easy. Almost anyone can own fancy equipment, but what real training and education do these people have? How are they equipped to handle the public? What is their background? These are very important questions to ask when you are selecting a medical spa.

First and foremost, don't discount the fact that this is a medical spa. Writers at Eleven Wellness agree that this is, without a doubt, the most important thing to consider. The procedures that will be performed on you are medical in nature, and they will be performed on your body. You'll want to make sure that the person performing your procedure of choice is highly skilled with a medical background. It may surprise you to learn that there are some spas that send their employees to a two- or three-day course and call them "experts" because they earned a certificate over a weekend.

At Avalon Medical Spa, they focus on and prioritize education and training to ensure not only top technique, but to prioritize patient safety and satisfaction. The staff at Avalon has years of training and experience, and every new provider goes through intense training and shadowing before they are allowed to begin seeing patients.
