Shop 'Till You Drop, Then Head to the Spa

We all lead busy lives and try to pack as many activities as possible into our day, from chauffeuring kids, to shopping to doctor's appointments. Now, we might be one step closer to bringing our errands under one roof.

The latest spa trend making its way across the nation is the appearance of medical spas popping up in shopping malls. Cosmetic medicine is a fast-growing field and doctors are finding it easier to take the services to the clients. These spas offer traditional spa services such as facials and massages, but they also offer dermatology services such as injectable wrinkle treatments, peels and laser procedures.

Nationally, spas such as Radiance Medspa, Solana MedSpas and Sona MedSpa have opened locations often in ritzy shopping districts. And the numbers of medical spas around the country are on the rise. Today there are 1,250 to 1,500 medical spas in the U.S., up from a dozen or fewer just five years ago.

The crowded market in some cities is providing benefits to consumers in the form of discounted services and lower overall costs on selective services. However, pricing of cosmetic medical services can vary widely depending on the provider and the region.

So, check your favorite local mall and see what is available. You just might be able to cross two things off your list - new shoes for the kids and a chemical peel and a facial for yourself.
