MEDICAL FACIALS EXPLAINED


Medical facials can only be performed in a physician’s office using medical-grade products and tools to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate skin. Medical facials are highly-customizable treatments to improve the appearance of different skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, firmness, skin texture, pore congestion, and acne.

A medical facial follows the same protocol as a classic facial or European facial including cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. The only difference between these two treatments is that medical facials are performed in a physician’s office using medical-grade products and tools. Therefore, the results are more effective.

Since medical facials are performed within a physician’s office, the skin is treated at a deeper level. For example, in a spa facial a low concentration chemical peel may be used, whereas a high-concentration, unbuffered acids can be used during a medical facial.

Medical facials are highly customizable and can be tailored to your specific skin needs and concerns. Medical facials are also an effective complement to in office treatment such as dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, and Ultherapy.

Are you A Medical Facial CANDIDATE?


Medical facials are highly customizable, and can effectively address a wide spectrum of skin concerns, making them appropriate for nearly everyone. Your skincare professional will work with you to understand your specific skin needs and will recommend a customized medical facial treatment plan.

Although medical facials can easily be customized using a variety of tools and products, there are some conditions that may preclude treatment including use of medications that render skin very sensitive. As with any form of facial treatment, certain active ingredients and modalities such as laser resurfacing should be avoided if you are pregnant or have a heart condition. It is important that you discuss with your skincare professional any allergies, skin sensitivity, underlying conditions, or medications being taken prior to receiving a medical facial.

Your EXPERIENCE DURING A MEDICAL FACIAL


A medical facial is performed in a physician’s office. During the treatment, your skincare professional will cleanse, steam, exfoliate, and replenish your skin using a combination of modalities such as chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. Additional treatments including microcurrent, LED light therapy, ultrasound, intense pulsed light (IPL), and radio frequency can be incorporated.

The facial may last 30 minutes to 1 hour. You may also experience mild discomfort and downtime. This is contingent upon the concentration of ingredients used and the procedures performed. After the procedure is completed, it is important that you follow the post-procedure protocol outlined by your skincare professional. This is especially important if your medical facial incorporates treatments that increase your skin’s sensitivity to UV light.

WHEN to get A MEDICAL FACIAL?


When and how often to get a medical facial depends on a variety of factors including skin concerns, desired outcome, and the type of treatment performed. If you are looking to improve chronic acne, you may benefit from a series of medical facials spaced 4-6 weeks apart. If you are seeking quick skin rejuvenation to improve radiance prior to a big event, you may benefit from a single medical facial. However, the results are generally more pronounced after a series of treatments.

Since these facial treatments leverage medical-grade products and tools, it is recommended to be very diligent about sun protection.

WHERE Can I GET A MEDICAL FACIAL?


Medical facials should be performed by a physician or a licensed aesthetician who practices under the supervision of a physician. As these treatments employ medical-grade tools, they are not entirely risk-free. To avoid any unnecessary side effects, look for a licensed skincare professional with extensive knowledge and a proven track record in delivering safe, effective results.
