What is a Medical Facial?
A medical facial involves cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating the skin. Unlike other spa facials, the medical facial is performed by a Medical Aesthetician using medical grade products and treatments for optimal results. Medical facials have the ability to target deeper layers of skin to treat a range of concerns including fine lines, age spots, sun spots, acne scars, rough texture, large pores, and more.
What is Included in a Medical Facial?
A medical facial is highly customizable depending on your specific skin type and concerns. Our Medical Aesthetician will evaluate your skin care concerns, complete a skin analysis and create a customized treatment plan and skincare regimen for you. This may include a combination of treatments and products including:
Dermaplaning is often performed first for effective exfoliation, removing dead skin cells, dirt, and other debris from the pores as well as fine facial hair. Dermaplaning involves the use of a thin surgical blade at a precise angle to gently scrape the surface of the skin, resulting in a smoother look and feel right away. This allows for other treatments like peels and products to be absorbed into the skin more effectively. After dermaplaning, patients also find makeup application easier.
A chemical peel promotes the removal of dead and damaged skin cells, and the production of new, healthier skin cells to improve skin tone and texture. Chemical peels can range in strength from light, medium, and deep peels. Deeper peels can treat deeper layers of skin for more severe concerns like acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, discoloration and acne while light peels can effectively target surface level blemishes with little redness afterwards. You might add a chemical peel to your medical facial for healthier, rejuvenated skin.
