Spa Facials vs Medical Facials: What’s the difference?

Facials are offered anywhere from salons and spas to plastic surgeons’ and dermatologist’ offices.

So, what are the differences between them?

If you choose to have a facial done at a spa, expect more of a relaxing and pampering experience. Skin issues can be addressed, but the ingredients are geared towards comfort and soothing. While they can be effective, they may not be as strong or medically-based as what you can get at a medical spa. Clinical Facials are not as relaxing or pampering; more attention is given to serious skin concerns and need a clinical approach to achieve the results they want. Stronger concentrations and prescription-strength ingredients are used, along with laser treatments, more aggressive peels and microdermabrasion to tackle more serious skin concerns. Treating yourself to regular clinical facials is essential to maintain a regular pattern of exfoliation and healthy skin. When the skin is properly and frequently exfoliated, cell turnover rate ensues, which means softer skin that is more even in tone, less prone to breakouts and shows fewer signs of aging.

This Facial is an exfoliating treatment that provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion and is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins. The dermaplaning treatment is done by our experienced Medical Aestheticians who use a blade to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”. A noticeable improvement is immediate with smoother texture and fresh skin appearance. Hair returns softly and will not become more coarse because of the treatment. Products will penetrate the skin more effectively following this treatment. Extractions, lymphatic drainage facial massage, and customized mask are included.

Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedure that works as a strong exfoliant to remove the very top layers of the epidermis leading to growth of new and healthy skin cells. It is very useful in treatment of superficial wrinkles and acne scars, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tones, and clogged pores. Many patients with a sensitivity to tretinoins and Retin-A find microdermabrasion a comparable treatment option. Our diamond tip microdermabrasion system allows you to choose between 6 different abrasive grits and tip sizes depending on how aggressive each patient would like to be treated. The finer tips provide a superficial polishing of the skin, the medium tips are for more aggressive treatments of the face, while the coarse tips are used for aggressive treatments of the chest, back and body. Vacuum assisted suction is used to remove dead skin cells and can be adjusted with this particular system to increase blood flow and oxygenation to the treated areas. The procedure takes about 1 hour and patients can expect minor redness and irritation that usually resolves within one hour of treatment. The overall result is a smoother and refreshed look. Extractions, lymphatic drainage facial massage, and a customized mask are included.

Sun, UVA, and reduced collagen production that comes with age all contribute to fine lines, brown spots & discoloration, reduced skin elasticity.

Chemical Peels are topically applied acids that create a uniform and controlled exfoliation designed to even out skin discoloration while smoothing and brightening the skin. Chemical peels are a great choice for treating rough, dehydrated, sun-damaged or acneic skin on the face, arms, back, chest, hands, and feet. While customizing the nature and depth of the peel, a significant number of layers can be exfoliated creating a fresh and vibrant appearance. Light, medium, and deep chemical peels all include extractions, lymphatic drainage facial massage, and customized mask.

Skin needling, also called microneedling therapy, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a device containing fine needles. The needles are used to puncture the skin to create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks are noticeable. Extractions, lymphatic drainage facial massage, and customized mask are included.

The Stem Cell Facelift Procedure uses your own blood to prepare a product enabling the administration of your concentrated platelets and tissue building elements (Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP). Using the Stem Cell Facelift, PRP can be injected under the eyes, forehead, and smile lines as well as into deep wrinkles to stimulate collagen regrowth allowing the area to tighten and regain a youthful glow. Skin rejuvenation with PRP can be done on the neck, Décolleté, and back of hands as well. PRP can also be applied topically and penetrated deep into the skin with the use of a dermapen. Extractions, lymphatic drainage facial massage, and customized mask are included.
