5 Essential Steps to Help You MASTER Social Media for Your Med Spa 

These days, social media marketing is absolutely imperative for every medical spa practice. Social media is critical for your med spa to reach new clients, keeping your medical aestheticians calendars’ full, and get your clinic on the map .

In this article, we will discuss five essential steps to help you grow your social media presence, helping you optimize your social media to help you reach and retain new clients.

Quality Over Quantity

In the med spa space, you can optimize social media to inform, educate and entertain prospective clients. One of the most important things to keep in mind is that quality is far more important than quantity. In order to get the most out of your med spa social media marketing strategy, consider releasing strategic, high-quality content, rather than overwhelming your follower’s feeds with low-quality, generic and bland content. The truth is that every med spa is on social media—you are likely competing with thousands of local businesses for the same clients. This is why it is so important for your clinic to rise above the pack with high-quality, authentic and original content, to capture the attention of your clients.

Community Management

Engaging with your audience is absolutely key to ensuring that you can connect with them. Prospective clients usually do their research before selecting their clinic—and the best way to conduct research is to follow clinics (and even individual medical aestheticians, cosmetic nurse injectors, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons!) on social media. Clients do this not only to learn more about their skin concerns and the variety of treatments out there, but also to discover local providers and practitioners. That is why it is critical for your clinic to publish social media content that is not only authentic and easily accessible to prospective clients, but also personable. You should be able to connect with your clients on a personal level with your social media content. This can be incredibly valuable in converting them into leads.

Strong Video Content (Instagram Reels and Tik Tok Posts)

In the cosmetic dermatology space, the majority of your target audience lives on Instagram and Tik Tok. That’s why it is critical to not only publish static image posts, but also a variety of multimedia content, particularly video content in the form of Instagram reels and Tik Tok posts. If a picture can speak 1000 words, imagine what a video can convey! Indeed, video content, especially when enhanced by stunning visuals and captivating music, is always more engaging than static images, plus it has the additional benefit of showcasing the work of your med spa—prospective clients can see the quality of your work for themselves!

Here’s an example of how Digital Glow helped Therapeutic Aesthetics, a leading medical spa, effectively use Instagram Reels to attract and expand their social media reach by thousands of followers.

Influencer Marketing

Influencer marketing, in the med spa space, involves collaborating with popular and relevant local influencers to promote your brand, your procedures, and ultimately expand your client base. Local influencers are valuable partners due to their large following of loyal, and most importantly, local social media followers—each one of these followers can be converted into a prospective client. 

How do you select the right influencer for your med spa marketing strategy? Your partner influencer(s) should ideally be real-life consumers who have in-depth knowledge about cosmetic procedures, dermatology and the skin care industry. Their followers should trust them and their opinions, including their opinions of your med spa. You can work with influencers to create engaging content, announce promotions and giveaways (check out this example that we used, with amazing results!), and host question and answer sessions—the possibilities are endless! A popular trend right now is the “takeover”. This involves an influencer “taking over” your social media account—in the med spa marketing space, this could involve livestreaming a cosmetic procedure, giving followers a tour of your clinic, or interviewing your staff.

Paid Social Ads

The ideal social media for med spa strategy effectively leverages paid social ads. Paid social ads are essentially paid advertisements that are guaranteed to land in the feeds of prospective clients. You can customize your paid social ads so that reach your target audience (for example, women between the ages of 25-60). This ensures that the right people (i.e. prospective clients!) are seeing, following, and sharing your content.

Even more, once a prospective client discovers your social media profile, their engagement can often place your med spa in the social media feeds of their social networks. Your posts could potentially go viral, or your follower base could explode exponentially. All of this will positively impact your med spa.
