Medical facials are the thing right now and why they are gaining popularity over conventional facials is a question that we will answer in this post.

You can get a medical facial from a licensed medical aesthetician or a dermatologist.

Medical facials are better than conventional spa facials because-

1. They reach deeper

Your skin the largest organ system that you have and what you get to see is just the top layer.

Skin that glows with health can only ever be achieved from the inside. Which is why medical facials help you get that effect from the inside vis-à-vis from the top layer down, like conventional facials do.

2. They are customized to your skin

You go to a spa and they have a variety of facials that they offer and even after the variety that they offer none of them are customised to your particular skin type like a medical facial is.

When you visit your dermatologist for a medical facial, the first thing that you receive is a thorough skin examination that will help them identify your skin type and texture. What you get as a result is a facial that is as personal as the skin that you have.

3. Work on a cellular level

Your skin takes approximately 3-4 weeks to shed completely. A medical facial will help accelerate the process and get you the glowing, healthy skin, instantly.

What to expect

1. Deep cleansing

Just like at a salon, it all begins with a cleansing therapy for your skin.When your skin is cleansed is when its real texture is visible.

And only then can we proceed to the next step.

2. Complete skin analysis

Now this is something that you will never get at a salon because they do not have the innate understanding of skin from the medical perspective.

Once we have determined the texture of your skin, its pH levels and the nature of your skin, we proceed to the next step.

3. Exfoliation

You can get either microdermabrasion or a chemical peel, either way, the results are the same. Your skin is now more receptive to the active ingredients used in the process.

4. Steam

Steam helps clear pores and softens debris that has been accumulating inside. Steam also helps boost circulation.

5. Healthy circulation

Massage is then done with all the active ingredients in place. This helps get rid of the toxins and promotes circulation of healthy blood which will leave skin looking young and healthy.

6. Deep hydration and sun protection

Moisturisers are then allowed to seep in via a suitable face mask and SPF factors are also added.

7. Healthy and glowing skin

The end result is always the same, healthy glowing skin. This works best if you get the procedure done every 4-5 weeks.
