FAQs About Natura Med Spa

While we offer many different treatments to assist you with this goal, there may be other questions that you have about our South Florida aesthetic center. Continue reading to learn the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions, and then contact us today for your free consultation.

1. What is a Medical Spa?

Natura Med Spa proudly offers the latest aesthetic treatments in our spa-like environment, that have been cleared by the FDA. Our focus is on you and your experience as our client. With this focus in mind, we have created our facility that features a state-of-the-art, soothing, spa-like atmosphere while providing the best aesthetic medical treatments that are currently available. Our clients frequently describe their experience with us as time well spent in a soothing, relaxing, and rewarding environment.

2. What is the difference between a day spa and a medical spa?

A typical day spa is unable to legally provide any medical treatments. They offer basic treatments such as massages and facials. Natura Med Spa, on the other hand, is fully staffed with qualified medical personnel, including Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNP) and Physician Assistants (PA), all under the supervision of our Medical Director and Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. Our fully trained and licensed staff are what allow us to provide the aesthetic medical procedures that you are looking for.

3. How do I make an appointment?

Whether you are ready to book your appointment, or interested in scheduling a free consultation, you can either call us 654.546.8393, or fill out the form on our contact page. Let us know the best days and times for your schedule, and our specialist will work to accommodate your needs.

4. Is there anything I should do prior to my appointment?

When your appointment is scheduled, our specialist will be sure to go over all of the details that you need to know for your treatment. Should you have any additional questions after they have covered the details, this is a great time to ask, but don’t worry if you think of other questions afterwards. You are welcome to call at anytime with the questions you may have leading up to your appointment.

5. When should I arrive?

Please be sure to arrive at the time of your appointment. You are always welcome to arrive a few minutes early to allow yourself time to relax and not feel as though you are rushing into your treatment. We want you to feel as relaxed as possible, and arriving early could be a great help with this. Our clients expect us to be punctual, and since we reserve your appointment time for you and no one else, we need you to be punctual.

6. What if I am late for my appointment?

Please call our Parkland office in advance if you expect to be late. We realize that sometimes events work against even our best laid plans, and we will do our best to accommodate you if you give us notice. However, if you are going to be more than a few minutes late, then we may not be able to accommodate you on your scheduled day, as we have other clients who are ready and will need to be seen on time.

7. What is your cancellation policy?

Should you need to cancel or change your scheduled appointment, we require a minimum of 48 hours advance notice in order to avoid a cancellation fee. Last-minute cancellations and appointment changes cause us to lose time, which means that our other patients who need treatment are unable to be seen.

8. What is your reservation policy?

When you schedule an appointment, your time slot has been reserved especially for you. We strongly encourage all patients to keep their appointments as scheduled. Once your appointment is on the schedule, we plan and prepare specifically for your treatment so that we can provide the highest quality service that is customized to your needs.

9. What type of payments do you accept?

We accept payment in the following forms:

  • All major credit cards
  • U.S. currency
  • We offer 0% financing through Care Credit GreenSky patient solutions.

10. What should I wear for my spa treatment?

When you plan what to wear for your treatment, you might wonder if you should come dressed professionally, casually, or somewhere in between. We encourage our clients to wear apparel that is comfortable. When you arrive for your appointment on time and in comfortable clothing, your experience will be that much more enjoyable. We ask our clients who are gentlemen to please refrain from wearing sleeveless shirts or tank tops.
