When you arrive for your appointment, please remain in your car and call us at 801.515.0260 to notify us. Our staff member will come to take your temperature and escort you into the med spa.

The most important thing to remember is to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing for your visit! Our team wants you to feel as relaxed and as at ease as possible throughout your treatment process. Depending on the service you are receiving, we may provide further instructions prior to your visit. For example, if you are undergoing laser hair reduction, you may wish to bring or wear your bathing suit for your treatment. 

Before any skin care service, we recommend wearing nothing on your skin. If possible, please come to your appointment with clean skin, free from makeup or skin care products. You should also avoid wearing self-tanners. No worries, though, if you arrive with makeup on! Your provider will gently cleanse your face or other treatment area before your session begins.

Most treatments at Gallery of Aesthetics involve minimal to no downtime. For pain management, topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment areas, if needed. This means you should be able to drive yourself to and from your medspa appointment with no problem. In the event you will require other sedation for your treatment, we can help you plan your visit accordingly.

Our staff will inform you of any pre-treatment instructions prior to your arrival. For example, before an injectables session, you may wish to start taking a supplement called arnica montana which may help reduce your risk of bruising and swelling. You may also reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding blood-thinning substances at least a week in advance. Common blood thinners include non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), alcohol, gingko biloba, ginseng, green tea and garlic.

For another example, in the weeks before and after any laser skin treatment, you may need to pause your skin care regimen if it includes the application of retinoids. Rest assured, our team will be sure to review your specific treatment instructions with you well before your appointment, ensuring you know exactly what to do and what to expect before and after sessions with us.

In general, we advise you to avoid any intense exercise immediately following your medspa treatment. This is especially true after any injectables treatments. Exercise encourages blood flow and may exacerbate any swelling or redness from your treatment. Intense exercise can also affect your injectables results by moving your injectables to undesired locations.

Though much of the time, your medication will not be an issue, some medications are contraindicated for certain treatments. Therefore, we will be sure to inquire if you are on any medications during your consultation. In the event you are taking a medication that doesn’t mix well with a certain treatment, we will postpone your treatment until you are off the medication, or schedule your treatment while you are taking a temporary “break” from your medication (per the approval of your prescribing physician).

Yes, of course you will fit in! Our medspa was created just for you! Rest assured, our dedicated team of medical professionals is committed to helping you feel at home right from the start. From the moment you enter Gallery of Aesthetics, you will be greeted by warm and attentive staff who are passionate about helping you achieve your very best results. We will guide you through your treatment process, answer any questions you may have and, ultimately, help you relax and enjoy your time with us. We consider our clients family, and we truly can’t wait to serve you!

It is a true pleasure and privilege to help you explore all your options at Gallery of Aesthetics! During your personal consultation, we will carefully review all your concerns and goals and help you devise a treatment plan that fits your needs perfectly. Whether you visit us for one service or decide to schedule a series of treatments, our team is committed to helping you meet both your budget and aesthetic goals with ease!

Most of our treatments involve minimal to no downtime, but a few treatments may cause swelling, redness and other common side effects. During your consultation and treatment, your provider will inform you of what to expect following your treatment, and if any pre- and post-treatment care is needed.

No, all medspa services are considered cosmetic and not covered under insurance.

Medical spas blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.

Medical aesthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, pedicures and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at medical spas are more intense and offer much more noticeable results. Aesthetic procedures include dermal fillers such as Botox®, Juvéderm® and Restylane®, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments and many more.

We have a wide range of various solutions to treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles including injectables, lasers and skin treatments. We customize treatments that are best suited to you to give you the best results.

This answer may be different for each individual. Typically, a good skincare regimen is the first step. HydraFacial MD®, microneedling, laser skin treatments and injectables all play a unique role in reversing facial aging. We will customize an individual plan for each patient based on your needs!

Any unopened products can be brought back within 30 days for medspa credit toward another product or service. However, we are not able to refund opened products.
