Spa and Beauty Salon - what's the difference?

Recently the word spa seems to have been added to lots of different businesses.  So what is the difference between a spa and a beauty salon.

Traditionally a Spa will be a either a business that offers water treatments or facilities within their premisses but nowadays it seems that the word spa is associated with any luxury treatments, whether there is water present or not.

At Spa Uniq we do have the spa environment with our alfresco hot tub an cedar barrel sauna.  We also offer traditional beauty treatments such as manicure and pedicure along with maintenance like waxing and tinting.  A beauty Salon will generally offer lot of maintenance type treatments and facials and less of the relaxing massage and body treatments that a Spa will provide.
