What are the benefits of a medical-grade facial vs. a regular facial?

When it comes to facial treatments, the choice between a medical-grade facial and a regular or at-home facial can make a significant difference in achieving desired results. While both options offer their own set of benefits, medical-grade facials provide significant advantages due to the advanced techniques and professional-grade products they involve. These benefits may include:

  • Customizable: Medical-grade facials can be customized and combined with our other available treatment options to help you achieve your specific goals.
  • Minimal downtime: With gentle (yet effective) products and techniques, medical-grade facials allow patients to resume their normal activities soon after treatment.
  • Enhanced complexion: Following a medical-grade facial, patients often report smoother, more radiant skin and a decreased appearance of lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections.
  • Cleaner, healthier skin: A medical-grade facial provides the opportunity for deep cleansing of your skin without damaging or irritative side effects.

How often should you get a medical-grade facial?

The most appropriate frequency of medical-grade facials depends on various factors, such as your skin type, concerns, and overall skincare routine. In general, it is recommended to have a medical-grade facial every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain optimal and consistent results. This timeframe allows your skin to fully recover and regenerate between treatments as well.

Are there any benefits to having medical-grade facials more frequently?

While regular medical-grade facials every 4 – 6 weeks are sufficient for most people, there may be certain cases when more frequent treatments can be beneficial. If you have specific skin concerns that require intensive treatment, such as acne or hyperpigmentation, a more frequent facial schedule, such as every 2 – 3 weeks, may be considered suitable for you.

Can spacing out medical-grade facials too far apart affect the results?

Yes, having too much time between your facials may impact the efficacy of treatment and the consistency of your results.

What at-home skincare routines should I pair with my in-office facials?

Even with consistent in-office facials, it is critical to practice proper skincare habits at home between treatments. This helps not only to boost the results of your medical-grade facial but also to encourage longer-lasting results. For the most consistent and complete enhancements possible, be sure to:

  • Adhere to a recommended skincare regimen
  • Avoid sun exposure
  • Stay hydrated
  • Keep the skin moisturized
  • Use sunscreen
  • Do not smoke
