The doctor makes the difference. The company believes that, in order for a spa to be deemed “medical,” there should be convincing evidence that the service promises are based on science and delivered with medical expertise. Paul Hester, MD, is present and active in the delivery of the facility’s services, which builds and nurtures patient confidence.
Beautiful health now. The business focuses on the enhancement of health and image with a goal of moving patients in the direction of positive change. This includes both the medical and esthetic sides of the business and culminates in the Diamond Cosmetic program, which offers preferred pricing for esthetic procedures targeting skin health or image enhancement. This balance helps ease client apprehensions about indulging in medical spa services and instills enthusiasm for the chance to live better through medical science.
No medical spa is an island. The facility realizes the benefits of having relationships with other talented providers, and, by forming and maintaining alliances with other medical professionals and businesses within the community, Be Medispa has become a medical image and human performance resource for its entire community.
