Finding a Great Medical Spa in Santa Barbara and Beyond

Chances are you may have stumbled across this blog because you are either searching for a medical spa in Santa Barbara or looking for information on a medical spa in your own area. At Evolutions Medical Spa in Santa Barbara we believe that putting an effort into finding a great, reputable spa is extremely important. Most of the services offered by medical spas – such as medical grade chemical peels, Botox and Dysport wrinkle treatments, dermal fillers, laser hair removal and more – should be done by a medical aesthetician, nurse or doctor.

Dr. Terry Perkins is the Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon who owns and oversees Evolutions Medical Spa. He offers advice and tips on how to find a great medical spa – whether it be in Santa Barbara or your hometown – on this informational Squidoo page.

How to Make an Informed Decision about Anti-Wrinkle Treatments Available in Santa Barbara

How to Find an Excellent Medical Spa – Questions to Ask and Tips from Evolutions Medical Spa

At Evolutions Medical Spa in Santa Barbara we strongly encourage potential clients to ask questions and become informed before committing to a medical spa. In fact, many people are not familiar with the difference between a “medical” spa and a “day” spa – even less familiar with how to discern an okay medical spa from an excellent one. Read on for a bit of background and a few tips on how to find an excellent, trustworthy medical spa (like Evolutions!).

Medical spas, also known as medspas and medi-spas, have a “medical” focus as opposed to relaxation/pampering found at “day spas”. Medical spas offer non-invasive or minimally invasive medical aesthetic services for people who are looking to improve themselves without surgery or extended downtime. Many medical spas offer treatments such as medical grade chemical peels, injections of Botox or Dysport, injections of dermal fillers, laser hair removal and much more in an atmosphere that is more luxurious than a plastic or cosmetic surgeon’s office.

Important questions to ask when researching a medical spa:

  • Who is the medical director? Medical spas should be overseen by an appropriately qualified physician meaning those who specialize in aesthetic or skin-related fields such as a cosmetic or plastic surgeon or a dermatologist.

Evolutions Medical Spa is overseen by Dr. Terry J. Perkins, a double board certified cosmetic surgeon, who specializes in aesthetic facial surgery and liposuction and has been practicing for more than 30 years.

  • Where is the doctor’s main office? It is ideal for the doctor to be close by so that he is accessible for any patient’s needs.

Dr. Perkins is based in Santa Barbara, he practices cosmetic surgery at his Cosmetic Surgery Center Medical Group office that is just minutes from Evolutions.

  • Is the doctor available to see me at the spa to answer questions or available to examine me if there is a complication? It is important to note that procedures such as injections (of Botox, dermal fillers and the like), laser hair removal, FotoFacials, certain chemical peels, etc., are medical procedures that should be done by a trained medical professional with the same care and diligence that you would find in a doctor or surgeon’s office.

Dr. Perkins is always available for a consultation if there is a question or concern, scheduled through Evolutions.

  • If there is a complication, the doctor should be available to evaluate the situation. Does the doctor have normal hours at the spa? Knowing that the doctor is available certain days of the week at the medical spa for consultations and evaluations is tremendously important. This insures the doctor is playing an active role in the medical spa and that s/he would be available to see you upon request.

Dr. Perkins holds regular hours at Evolutions, seeing patients at the spa two days per week by appointment.

  • Did the medical director personally train the clinicians working at the spa? Training a clinician personally by the medical director indicates that s/he promotes uniformity in the treatment of patients to insure the best results. It also allows the medical director to evaluate the clinician and to provide further training, if necessary, to bring the clinician up to medical-grade standards.

Dr. Perkins personally trains the Evolutions’ nurses and clinicians. He meets with the Evolutions’ staff on a regular basis to insure everyone is kept up-to-date on what is going on at the medical spa.


We hope that you seek answers to these questions when looking for a great medical spa in your town. If you are in the Santa Barbara area and have always wanted to see what Evolutions Medical Spa is about, we hope that our answers to these questions have provided you with insight into our spa and we encourage you to come in and see us! In addition, Evolutions offers a complimentary consultation – fill out our form online – or call us at 805.687.0212 today!

Review of Evolutions Medical Spa Event Featuring DYSPORT

Yesterday Evolutions Medical Spa in Santa Barbara held an exciting educational event introducing Dysport – the first real alternative to Botox. On hand was the Dysport representative (left in the picture) who held an informative presentation and question and answer period followed by a live demonstration by Dr. Terry Perkins of a patient receiving Dysport. In addition, attendees who purchased a Dysport treatment at the event received a special discount and one lucky raffle winner won a free treatment!

Key points that we learned about Dysport:

  • It is a form of botulinum toxin type A (and so is Botox)
  • The “onset” time is shorter than Botox, with patients seeing results as early as 24 – 36 hours after treatment
  • Dysport is FDA approved and has been used in Europe since the early 1990s
  • Dysport is measured in units that are different than Botox and it works out to be a better value than Botox
  • Dysport is commonly used to treat wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes and can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Dysport typically lasts three to four months
  • Dysport is injected with a small needle to specific areas – see live demonstration picture below:
