MANSFIELD — Tranquil music and bits of greenery greet visitors of Vitality Natural Wellness and Medspa.
The soothing ambiance is intentional: “We have created an environment where we want people to come in and feel nourished,” said Dr. Melissa McRae, founder and medical director of Vitality Natural Wellness and Medspa, located at 42 N. Main St., Suite B, in downtown Mansfield.
But what exactly is a medspa, anyway?
“A medical spa, or a medi spa as a lot of people call it, is a medical facility where we do medical grade aesthetic treatments,” McRae explained.
The aesthetic treatments are meant to help improve skin texture and tone, as well as reverse signs of aging.
“The level of treatments can be more intense because we have medical background into how we’re taking care of the skin,” McRae noted.
Proper skin care can sometimes fall by the wayside, but it’s important to bear in mind that the skin is the body’s largest organ, and healthy skin is vital to a person’s wellbeing.
And while Vitality offers a number of services that can help improve a person’s skin, the Vitality staff aren’t simply focused on the end results, but also educating and equipping people to live healthier lives.
“We try to make sure that we can educate our patients,” McRae said. “That’s a big component of what we feel is so important about our patient experience.”
Whether it’s at their facility or via social media, “We try to make sure that patients are getting great tips and that we can be a resource for them,” McRae said.
