Whether you’re thinking about getting a medical-grade facial, injectable fillers, or perhaps a cosmetic procedure, chances are you will be going to a medical spa to do it. Capital Skin a hybrid of a medical office and a day spa operated under a physician’s license and care. With treatments and products that are stronger, more involved, medical-grade and physician-strength, Capital Skin Medical Spa is primarily about dramatic visible results and secondarily about relaxing and pampering treatments. At Capital Skin, we effectively combine the two, offering medical treatments in a spa-like environment.

For New Patients

Consultation or Treatment: While some facilities require separate consultation-only appointments for first-timers, Capital Skin Medical Spa can accommodate both a consultation and treatment appointment at the same visit.

Capital Skin Medical Spa provides complimentary consultations, followed by a treatment if the physician, esthetician or nurse recommends, and the patient elects to proceed.

It also depends on the treatment itself whether or not the treatment can be administered on a first visit.

For instance, there are certain contraindications to consider before injectables, fillers, chemical peels, and lasers. Clients who have used aspirin in the past week are not recommended to have injectables due to the blood-thinning properties of aspirin; if a client is currently using Retin-A, a chemical peel treatment would need to be postponed.

Who Will Treat You?

Who you will see depends on the treatment you are getting. If you are going to Capital Skin Medical Spa for services like facials, microdermabrasion, chemical peels or light therapy, one of our estheticians will treat you. At Capital Skin, Dr. Purcell himself will administer injectables, fillers and select laser treatments.

Maintenance And Follow-Up

Due to higher intensity of products and services offered at Capital Skin Medical Spa, at-home care and client/patient compliance is strongly urged.

Capital Skin Medical Spa has a staff of patient coordinators and estheticians that work with the doctor to create a customized beauty plan that will give clients the most favorable outcomes.
