What is a Medical Facial?

facial5Medical facials focus on results rather than relaxation; they give extra attention to serious skin problems and concentrate on deep exfoliation to renew the surface of the skin.

Medical facials are not considered pampering, as a spa facial is. Medical Facials are more like a hard-core workout for the skin. However, if you have specific skin concerns, they are the best option for improvement. A medical facial provides a clinical approach to treatment and is more concerned with the outcome rather than a relaxing spa-like experience.

If your goal is an hour of rest and relaxation, then the spa facial is your best choice; if you are genuinely interested in improving or correcting a skin condition or want to mitigate the signs of aging, then the medical facial is substantially more effective.

Typically, the skin renews itself every 4 to 6 weeks. As we age, our skin cell turnover rate slows down, which can result in acne, wrinkling and lackluster skin. Often with a medical-grade facial, physical and chemical forms of exfoliation are utilized, which allows the natural sloughing of dead skin cells to occur at a quicker pace, resulting in more beautiful skin. Facials combined with medical-grade ingredients or devices will not only improve the look of your skin, but also the long-term health of it too.
