What is a Medical Facial?

A medical facial is a skincare treatment performed in a medical setting, typically under the supervision of a licensed healthcare professional such as a licensed medical professional or a licensed aesthetician. Although this facial will pamper and relax you, it's different from a "standard" spa facial in several key ways:

  1. Medical-Grade Products and Equipment: Medical facials often use higher-strength, medical-grade skincare products and equipment. These products and tools are designed to treat specific skin issues more effectively than over-the-counter products.

  2. Customization and Targeted Treatments: These facials are highly customized to an individual's skin type and concerns. They can target a variety of skin issues, such as acne, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration more effectively.

  3. Supervision by Medical Professionals: The treatments are typically administered by healthcare professionals or aestheticians with specialized training. This allows for a higher level of care, especially for individuals with sensitive or problematic skin.

  4. Advanced Techniques: Medical facials may include advanced techniques like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, LED therapy, and laser treatments, which are not usually available in a regular spa setting.

  5. Focus on Skin Health: While relaxation is a component of medical facials, the primary focus is on improving skin health and addressing specific dermatological concerns.

  6. Post-Treatment Care: Following a medical facial, there might be specific post-treatment care instructions, particularly if the treatment was invasive or used strong active ingredients.

Who is a good candidate for a Medical Facial?

A good candidate for a medical facial is someone who is looking to address specific skin concerns that go beyond the scope of regular beauty treatments. These can include:

  1. Aging Skin: Individuals who are experiencing signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of skin elasticity, can benefit from medical facials. These treatments often include ingredients and techniques that promote collagen production and skin rejuvenation.

  2. Acne and Acne Scars: People suffering from acne or have residual acne scarring can find relief with medical facials. Treatments can be tailored to reduce inflammation, clear out clogged pores, and promote healing of the skin.

  3. Hyperpigmentation and Uneven Skin Tone: Those with issues like sun spots, age spots, melasma, or general uneven skin tone can see improvements with medical facials that include brightening and pigment-correcting ingredients.

  4. Sensitive Skin or Skin Conditions: Individuals with sensitive skin, rosacea, or other specific dermatological conditions may benefit from the tailored and professional approach of a medical facial.

  5. Textural Issues: For those with concerns about skin texture, such as enlarged pores, roughness, or dry patches, medical facials can offer exfoliation and hydration treatments.

  6. Preventive Skincare: Even those without specific skin problems can undergo medical facials for preventive care, maintaining skin health, and delaying signs of aging.

  7. Post-Procedural Care: People who have undergone surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures might use medical facials to enhance or maintain their results.

What are the benefits of a Medical Facial?

Medical facials offer several benefits, particularly because they are tailored to individual skin needs and use advanced techniques and products. Some of the key benefits include:

  1. Deep Cleansing and Exfoliation: Medical facials provide a deeper cleansing and exfoliation than standard facials. This helps in unclogging pores, removing dead skin cells, and rejuvenating the skin, leading to a smoother and brighter complexion.

  2. Targeted Treatments: These facials can be customized to address specific skin concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. This targeted approach ensures more effective results than general skincare treatments.

  3. Enhanced Skin Health: Medical facials can improve overall skin health. By using medical-grade products and techniques, these facials can penetrate deeper into the skin layers, promoting better skin health from the inside out.

  4. Collagen Stimulation: Many medical facials aim to stimulate collagen production, which is crucial for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. This can help in reducing the signs of aging and improving skin tone.

  5. Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Through the use of advanced techniques like microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser therapy, medical facials can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  6. Improved Skin Tone and Texture: These facials can significantly improve skin tone and texture, making the skin appear more even and smooth.

  7. Hydration and Nourishment: Medical facials often include intense hydrating treatments that can nourish dry, dehydrated skin, leaving it feeling soft and replenished.

  8. Acne and Scar Treatment: For those with acne-prone skin or acne scars, medical facials can help in reducing breakouts, controlling oil production, and minimizing the appearance of scars.

  9. Immediate and Long-Term Benefits: While many people notice immediate improvements in their skin's appearance, medical facials also offer benefits that build over time, especially with regular treatments.

  10. Relaxation and Stress Relief: Despite being more clinical, these facials can still offer the relaxing and stress-relieving benefits associated with traditional spa treatments.

When is a good time for a Medical Facial?

To maintain skin health, scheduling facials are recommended every 4-6 weeks. However, specific occasions like before a special event or season changes are also ideal times for a facial.  We can guide you with regard to the frequency of treatments to meet your goals and desires. 

What should I expect before and after my Medical Facial?

Before, during, and after a medical facial, there are certain steps and considerations to keep in mind to ensure the best experience and results:

Before a Medical Facial

  1. Consultation: A thorough consultation with a licensed medical professional or licensed aesthetician is crucial. They will evaluate your skin type, discuss any skin concerns or conditions, and understand your skincare goals.

  2. Medical History Review: You should disclose any medical conditions, allergies, or medications you are taking, as these can affect your treatment.

  3. Avoid Certain Products/Treatments: You may be advised to avoid using certain skincare products (like retinoids or exfoliants) and undergoing other skin treatments for a period before the facial to prevent any adverse reactions.

  4. No Waxing or Shaving: It's generally recommended to avoid waxing or shaving the area to be treated for a few days prior to your appointment to avoid irritation.

  5. Sun Protection: Minimize sun exposure and use sunscreen to protect your skin, as some treatments can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

During a Medical Facial

  1. Cleansing: The facial usually starts with a thorough cleansing of the skin to remove makeup and impurities.

  2. Skin Analysis: The professional will examine your skin, often using a magnifying lamp, to determine the specific needs and appropriate treatments.

  3. Customized Treatment: Based on the analysis, a customized treatment plan is implemented. This may include exfoliation, extraction of blackheads, application of serums, and other targeted treatments.

  4. Mask and Massage: Often, a mask tailored to your skin type is applied, followed by a facial massage to promote circulation and relaxation.

  5. Final Application: The treatment typically concludes with the application of skincare products like moisturizers, serums, and sunscreen.

After a Medical Facial

  1. Redness and Sensitivity: It’s not uncommon to experience some redness or sensitivity immediately after the treatment. This usually subsides within a few hours to a day.

  2. Post-Treatment Care Instructions: Follow any specific post-treatment care instructions that we provide. This may include avoiding certain products or activities and applying specific skincare products.

  3. Sun Protection: Be diligent about using sunscreen, as your skin may be more susceptible to sun damage post-treatment.

  4. Hydration: Keep your skin well-hydrated internally by drinking water and externally with appropriate moisturizers.

  5. Avoid Makeup: You might be advised to avoid wearing makeup for a limited period of time to allow your skin to breathe and heal.

  6. Expectations for Results: While some results may be immediate, the full benefits of the facial are often seen after a few days and may require multiple sessions for optimal results.

  7. Scheduling Follow-Up Treatments: Depending on your skin's needs, you may need to schedule follow-up treatments. Your skincare professional will advise you on the best course of action.

Remember, every individual’s skin is unique, and reactions to treatments can vary.
