If you’re a fan of facials than you’ve probably tried the different types as they’ve gained popularity. While there are plenty different types of facials, and each offer something great for different skin types, the medical facial is one of the more custom facial techniques. Learn more about what a medical facial entails and see if it’s worth swapping out your standard facial out for.

What is a medical facial?

There’s not much that differs from a standard facial and a medical facial. The primary difference is that medical facials use medical-grade products and different medical tools. For some of the ingredients that are used in a standard facial, you will see double the strength because they are medical grade. As we mentioned before, medical facials are custom to your skin type and what your skin needs to look great.

Who benefits from medical facials?

Since medical facials allow for customization with skin types and needs, there isn’t a specific person that benefits from a medical facial more than another. This form of facial is often suggested to individuals with bad acne or sensitive skin, simply because the products are medical grade and it can provide different results than prescription medicine.

How long does a treatment last?

A standard medical facial will last anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, giving you enough time to sit back and relax as your skin gets the nurturing that it needs.

Most people that stick with medical facials will do them routinely in order to maintain the results. We suggest getting a medical facial roughly once a month, more or less depending on what your doctor suggests. Call our office to set up an appointment today.
