Most Aesthetic practices focus primarily on EBD’s, Peels and injectibles and facials mostly take a back seat. Medical facials should be considered essential on the menu as they compliment to the results of the other therapies. A medical facial is a customized facial wherein an Aesthetic consultant does a thorough skin assessment and formulates a face therapy or facial. Suitable for a variety of skin types, these treatments improve the appearance of several skin concerns like acne, acne scars, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, skin firmness, skin texture, congestion and comedones Doctors with good aesthetic practices have their own signature facials also. In general there are same steps in a classic facial, including cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, massage and packs. They are helpful in improving glow, clarity 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 appear more effective. A medical facial is generally performed by a skin therapist. She will cleanse, do comedone extraction, exfoliate, and replenish your skin using a combination of modalities such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion. Additional treatments including microcurrent, LED light therapy, ultrasound, intense pulsed light (IPL), radio frequency, or microneedling may also be incorporated.
