The rise in affluence and a growing ageing population had birthed an ever-growing beauty industry offering premier services to keep patients looking youthful and flawless. With the deluge of choices, it can be difficult to decide on whom to go to for aesthetic care. The first step would be to understand the difference between Aesthetic clinics and Medical Spas.
Clinics are under the guidance of doctors and are monitored by MOH (ministry of health). They have to follow strict advertising guidelines that do not allow them to oversell and use aggressive marketing techniques. Injectables and laser treatment are strictly carried out by experienced doctors making the procedure safer and much more reliable. Medical spas and other wellness establishments have little to no physician involvement. They are not being bound by the rules of MOH. They are usually operated by beauticians or therapist and focus largely on facials and extractions.
The focus of this article would be on the clinical side and where to find the best clinics to suit your needs.
