The Medical Facial is appropriate for patients with clogged pores in need of extractions. A light exfoliation solution is used to loosen trapped oils; then extractions are performed.
WHAT IS A MEDICAL FACIAL?
Performed in a physician’s office, medical facials cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate skin using a combination of medical-grade products and tools. Suitable for a variety of skin types, these highly-customizable treatments improve the appearance of several skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, skin firmness, skin texture, pore congestion, and acne.
A medical facial follows the same general steps as a classic spa facial, including cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration. The primary difference between these two treatments is that medical facials are performed in a physician’s office using medical-grade products and tools. The overall results are therefore more effective.
TYPES OF MEDICAL FACIALS
Since medical facials are performed in a physician’s office, the skincare professional administering the treatment is able to affect the skin at a deeper level. For example, a low concentration chemical peel may be used during a classic spa facial, whereas 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. Additional treatment add-ons such a dermaplaning may be incorporated to physically exfoliate the top layer of the skin and enhance the absorption of the chemical peel solution. Medical facials are also an effective complement to in-office treatments such as dermal fillers and laser skin resurfacing.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A MEDICAL FACIAL?
Since medical facials are highly customizable, they can effectively address a wide spectrum of skin concerns, making them appropriate for most people. Your skincare professional at Facial Rejuvenation Centre 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 the 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 us if you have any allergies, skin sensitivity, underlying conditions, or if you are taking medications prior to your medical facial.
