Have you tried numerous facials and masks at home with little to no results? Medical-grade facials are a cost-effective way to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of your skin with minimum downtime.
Usually, medical-grade facials include the usage of devices and substances not available for purchase by consumers who don’t have medical training.
Medical-grade facials may also include other procedures such as dermaplaning, microcurrents, photofacials, and LEDs.
If you’re looking for dramatic results and minimal time investment, here’s what our expert at Medical Aesthetics & Laser, Dr. Safoora Zaka, has to say about medical-grade facials.
How medical-grade facials differ from other types of facials
A regular facial is mostly used to relax and cleanse the skin, whereas a medical-grade facial is used to manage and treat certain skin imperfections and conditions.
Medical-grade facials are customized treatments and may involve the use of prescription-strength serums, creams, and other topicals.
Dr. Zaka may use a small blade to remove the dead skin cells on your skin. She may also use LEDs and microcurrents to rejuvenate your skin. If your goals include removing fine lines and wrinkles, Dr. Zaka may recommend microneedling.
If your skin issues are moderate to severe, Dr. Zaka may also recommend a medical grade IV peel, which requires the supervision of a physician. This peel removes the damaged upper layers of the skin.
What imperfections can be targeted with medical-grade peels
Dr. Zaka uses medical-grade peels to help patients suffering from acne, dry skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Facials are also customized. Dr. Zaka analyzes your skin and asks you a few questions about possible allergic reactions, whether you’re on certain medications, and other information relevant to the treatments. Someone who uses vitamin A creams on a daily basis, for example, may not be a good candidate for light therapy.
Find out if you’re a good candidate for a medical-grade facial
Most people are good candidates for a medical-grade facial. However, if you have skin sensitivities due to medications, sunburn, or severe active acne, you may be either recommended another treatment or recommended to delay your facial.
