One of the most important first steps that you can take in choosing the best anti-aging spa is to determine exactly what types of services you are seeking and what types are offered by the spas you are considering. Ideally, good anti-aging spas should offer anti-aging facials, microderm abrasions, chemical peels, and other anti-aging services. Visit several spas that interest you and ask for a brochure from each. While not all spas will willing provide information about the prices of their services, most reputable spas will at least list the types of services offered. Briefly review the services offered by each spa and determine which provide the types of anti-aging services in which you are most interested.

Next, chat with regular customers of the spas you are considering to find the best anti-aging spa for you. Talk to friends, family members, and co-workers, asking if they or any of their contacts are customers of the spa in which you are interested. When you finally track down one of the customers, ask him or her about his or her experience with the spa. For example, ask about the quality and price of the services, the attitude of the staff, and whether they would refer a friend or family member to the anti-aging spa. Try to question at least one customer from each anti-aging salon that interests you to help you make the best decision.

View the spa’s gallery of images of previous clients’ before and after pictures. More and more spas are creating such galleries to show off their work and attract new clients. Carefully evaluate as many pictures in the gallery as you can, being sure to pay special attention to clients who have purchased services in which you are interested. Try to compare before and after pictures of the same procedure performed at different spas to determine which spa provided the best results.

Finally, have a minor procedure done at each spa, and compare the end results. For example, get a manicure at each anti-aging spa, and compare the service, the price and the quality of the finished product. By doing this, you will have an idea of the quality of service provided by each spa and a better idea of how the different spas compare in price. While price shouldn’t be the biggest consideration when choosing an anti-aging spa, it is an important factor to keep in mind.
