Cruise ship spa services have now modernized with ships like Bermudian, Florida-based shipping line Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.’s Breakaway ship’s Mandara Spa providing not only standard spa services like massages, manicures, and facials but also high-end and top-of-the-line cosmetic and/or medical procedures like teeth whitening, acupuncture, and injectables, like Botox and Restylane.
While a majority of spa patrons on cruise ships remain the elderly passengers looking for some pain relief, with services on the higher-end available, customers will use them to some degree. Doctors generally recommend that things like Botox be handled by dermatologists or other medical professionals as a reaction or bad treatment, which is more likely at the hands of spa workers with only five days of training, would need to be remedied as soon as possible. When far out to sea, this is often not possible and some side effects of Botox gone wrong include: “allergic reactions, vascular reactions, blindness, and low-grade chronic infections”.
Getting injured or contracting an illness while on a cruise can be dangerous, as victims may find themselves waiting for hours before they receive the needed medical attention.
