- A medical facial is a specialized skincare treatment that combines traditional techniques with medical-grade products, and equipment to address specific skin concerns. Medical facials are designed to target and treat specific skin conditions, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, sun damage, or aging skin. The treatment is typically customized to meet the individual needs of the patient, based on their skin type, concerns, and goals.
The process of a medical facial may involve several steps, including:
- Skin Analysis: Helps identify specific concerns and determines an appropriate treatment plan.
- Deep Cleansing: The skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove dirt, oil, and impurities.
- Exfoliation: Dead skin cells are gently removed through techniques like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or dermaplaning. This helps to improve skin texture and promote cell turnover.
- Extractions: This step is performed only if the skin needs it, to help remove blackheads, whiteheads, or other clogged pores.
- Treatment Mask: medical-grade ingredients are applied to the skin to address specific concerns and promote healing.
- Moisturization and Sun Protection: The treatment concludes with the application of a moisturizer and sunscreen suitable for the patient’s skin type to nourish and protect the skin.
Depending on the patient’s needs, additional procedures or technologies may be incorporated such as LED light therapy, high frequency, or steaming to enhance the results.
Typical downtime after the medical facial is minimal redness that could last a couple of hours.
You skin will immediately appear smoother, tighter, brighter, and more lifted, and clear. Results are cumulative, so the more you go, the better you’ll look.
Since medical facials are customizable, medical professionals can pick and choose the treatment according to your skin type and problems.
