Why Only Licensed Physicians Should Run Medical Spas

Medical spas are ideal places to enhance your natural aesthetics without surgery. However, when it comes to choosing the right medical spa for you, it’s important that you select a physician-led facility.

Susan J. Seman, DO, FACOS, offers a variety of medical spa services, including Coolsculpting®, Ultherapy®, and Botox® treatments, all under her close supervision.

An overview of medical spas

Medical spas specialize in treatments that rejuvenate your skin and enhance your aesthetic appearance without surgery.

Some common treatments medical spas offer for anti-aging skin enhancements include:

Through these types of nonsurgical treatments, you can reverse the signs of aging, tighten your skin, and look younger and more vibrant.

Benefits of a physician-led medical spa

While laws vary by state, medical spas typically must be overseen by licensed physicians. It’s an added benefit if you choose a medical spa that’s led by a board-certified general surgeon, such as Dr. Seman.

She has specialized training in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Dr. Seman recommends the right treatments for your aesthetic goals and customizes each treatment for your unique needs.

On the other hand, if you go to a medical spa where the providers aren’t trained properly, you could get poor results and, worse yet, serious health complications, such as infections and scarring.

Considering your options for nonsurgical medical spa treatments

We offer several popular medical spa services in-office to address age-related skin flaws and other cosmetic issues. Popular options Dr. Seman provides include the following:

Botox and fillers

Botox and fillers can quickly address wrinkles, fine lines, and lost facial volume by plumping up your skin and relaxing contracted muscles. Some injectables can also stimulate your natural collagen production to further enhance your long-term results.

Cellulite reduction

EMTONE™ cellulite reduction technology uses thermal and mechanical energy to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Dr. Seman also offers the Thermi250™ system for body rejuvenation. This treatment uses radiofrequency energy to heat your skin and reduce the severity of cellulite.


Emsculpt® is a noninvasive technology that helps redefine your muscles without intensive workouts. The treatment helps you burn fat and build muscle while you rest.

Treatment with Emsculpt can also tighten weak muscles in your abdomen to give you a leaner, firmer look.


Ultherapy® uses ultrasound technology to tighten your skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on areas like your face, back, neck, and upper chest.

The ultrasound imaging offers an added benefit of allowing Dr. Seman to see layers of your skin, so she can target the precise area that would benefit from treatment.

We also offer a variety of skin care services, including chemical peels, to improve the texture and tone of your skin. With proper after-care, you can enjoy the long-term results of fresher, healthier-looking skin.
