WHAT IS IT?
The main difference between a medical facial and a Classic European Facial is that it is typically performed within a cosmetic doctor’s office and uses medical-grade products and tools.
Medical Facials are not intended to be relaxing or for pampering. More attention is given to serious skin concerns and need a clinical approach to achieve the results they want. Medical facials are custom tailored to your skin’s need and generally follow the same steps as a spa facial—cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, and moisturizing—but on a more intense level and with the use of micro current, ultrasound, and radio waves for firming and lifting the skin. Stronger concentrations and prescription-strength ingredients are used, along with enzyme mask treatments to tackle more serious skin concerns. Treating yourself to a medical facial is essential to maintain a regular pattern of exfoliation and healthy skin. When the skin is properly and frequently exfoliated, the cell turnover rate ensues, which means softer skin that is more even in tone, less prone to breakouts and shows fewer signs of aging.
Medical facials are also a safe and effective way of complementing other noninvasive treatments such as injectables or laser . It can help prepare your skin for the treatments and improve results post-treatment.
WHO IS IT FOR?
With such a variety of methods, tools, and products available, a medical facial can be customized to accommodate your skin’s needs, whether it be rectifying aging, dehydrated, sun damaged, or acne prone skin.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Since a medical facial is more vigorous than a Classic European Facial, it’s obviously less relaxing, but the results are worth the minor edge. After a quick consultation, the aesthetician will cleanse, steam, exfoliate and analyze your skin, while incorporating treatments such as extractions, microcurrent , high frequency or the one that’s best suited for your skin’s needs.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
45 to 60 minutes
WHAT ARE ANTICIPATED RESULTS?
Your skin will immediately appear smoother, tighter, brighter, more lifted, and clear. Results are cumulative, so the more facials you have, the better you’ll look.
