Laser treatments are common procedures at medical spas, but getting the treatment rooms built and functioning well for both your clients and staff can prove to be more challenging than many people might think.
As a Miami commercial construction company that has worked on numerous MedSpa facilities, we’ve seen the many ways these challenges can present themselves. From climate control considerations to lighting and aesthetic features, the good news is you can avoid most, if not all, potential issues by undergoing thorough pre-construction. Not only does this help ensure that your clients will have exceptional experiences in your medical spa, but the facility itself will also adhere to all applicable medical and building code requirements.
Construction Considerations for MedSpa Laser Treatment Rooms
The best MedSpas set themselves apart from their competition by elevating everything about the client experience. While professionalism and expertise are musts, so too is the environment in which the client receives services.
From a construction perspective, here are a few important areas to address during the planning phase of your laser treatment rooms and facility.
- Climate control – Managing the temperature comfort in your treatment rooms often poses challenges, especially in laser treatment rooms where the laser itself produces heat. Because of this, it’s important to consider the mechanical needs of your treatment room before closing off the walls.
- Lighting – Lighting has a big effect on ambiance as well as your ability to do MedSpa procedures. Most laser treatment rooms need a combination of lighting to create a comfortable space while also having sufficient task lighting.
- Reception ambiance – A major difference between traditional medical facilities and MedSpas is the wellness and relaxation components that MedSpas offer, and the reception area sets the tone for the entire experience you’re trying to create. Consider any lighting or technical requirements you may need for your reception area and if you want any other aesthetic features in your design. All of this should be part of your construction planning process.
- Treatment rooms – Will individual treatment rooms service multiple types of procedures? If so, it’s important to consider all the possible needs you might encounter depending on the treatment you plan to offer. That way you can ensure you have adequate electrical, mechanical and technical needs in each room.
- Code requirements – All Florida commercial buildings must adhere to strict code requirements, but MedSpas also have some additional requirements that apply to medical occupancy facilities. It’s essential that your building be built to code, or it may not be operational.
