FAQs

  • Introduction

    Day spas are businesses that offer specific services to help promote health, wellness, and beauty. Massage therapists often work at day spas offering several services, including deep-tissue massage to help improve circulation and release knotted muscles and hot stone massage to promote positive energy flow through the body and release toxins. People visit day spas to receive pampering treatments designed to leave them feeling both rejuvenated and relaxed.


    Beauty and aesthetic services are also common offerings at day spas, with treatments that include antiaging facials, body and face waxing, and nail care. Day spas that employ licensed medical professionals, also referred to as med spas, can also offer antiaging medical treatments, such as cosmetic fillers and Botox injections.

  • What is a day spa?

    A day spa is an establishment that provides aesthetic and therapeutic services. Offerings include hot stone massage and deep tissue massage, rejuvenating beauty treatments, such as deep cleaning facials, pedicures and manicures, and moisturizing body wraps. Day spas provide a space for visitors to relax and de-stress through a variety of treatments that release tension and promote calmness.

  • What is the difference between a spa and a day spa?

    The two common types of spas are med spas and day spas. Day spas typically offer pampering services, such as massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, and whole-body beauty treatments. While a med spa also provides massage and skin services, the procedures offered are tailored to treat skin conditions, such as varicose veins, dry skin, and wrinkles. Med spas also handle procedures, such as Botox and filler injections.

  • Should I go to a spa or dermatologist?

    Med spas offer services, such as chemical peels for wrinkles, filler and Botox injections, and cool sculpting for fat removal, while dermatologists are specialized doctors who diagnose and treat skin conditions, such as warts, eczema, and skin cancers. Determining whether to go to a spa or a dermatologist depends on the type of treatment needed.

  • What does a full spa day include?

    Day spas offer multiple services, à la carte menu items, and packages, so a full spa day depends on the treatments an individual wants to experience. Day spa offerings include full-body massages, facial treatments, body waxing, aromatherapy, foot massages and baths, hot stone massages, and microdermabrasion. Some day spas also offer detoxing clay baths and full body wraps.

  • What are the different types of spa?

    At a med spa, customers receive treatments for dry skin, varicose veins, skin resurfacing, and hair removal. Day spas offer aesthetic services, such as facials and moisturizing and detoxing body wraps. Mineral spring spas or hot spring spas are naturally heated water springs, sometimes located on a resort’s property, where visitors soak in the water to soothe muscle tension.

  • What does a full-service spa mean?

    Full-service spas offer a full menu of treatments and aesthetic services. While specific offerings can vary, most full-service spas include massage, beauty treatments, such as facials and manicures, anti-aging treatments, and detoxing clay baths and body wraps. Some spas may also provide spray tanning and hair salon services.
