Maintaining healthy skin is the root to aging gracefully. And one of the foundations of aesthetic medicine is facials, dating back to the ancient world. Though one thing is certain, we are all looking for a way to achieve a radiant complexion!
In this article, our skincare experts have answered frequent questions we receive, such as what exactly are medical-grade facials? How can they improve the quality of your skin? And, what is the science behind their effectiveness?
So, let’s dive into this topic together and explore the wonders of medical-grade facials.
What Are Medical Grade Facials?
Medical-grade facials provide the most effective method to rejuvenate your skin, offering profound exfoliation, brightening effects, and essential hydration. These facials are administered by skilled a who follow protocols developed under the guidance of physicians.
What sets medical-grade facials apart is their utilization of clinic-grade solutions, enabling the treatment to penetrate deeper into the skin layers. This advanced approach effectively targets surface-level sun damage, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and enhances overall skin texture.
What are the Active Ingredients in a Medical Grade Facial?
Medical-grade solutions, also known as peels, can consist of glycolic acid, a blend of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), or a trichloroacetic acid (TCA) which is a stronger and deeper medical peel- giving you better results, faster.
- AHAs are naturally found in fruits and milk, which work to reveal a brighter and more even complexion by removing dead skin cells.
- BHAs, on the other hand, are great for penetrating deep into your pores and are often included in products for people with acne-prone skin. A common BHA is salicylic acid.
- Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring humectant in our skin, responsible for keeping our skin hydrated and plump. Using hyaluronic acid in facials will give your skin a luminous and hydrating boost.
- Vitamin A, also known as retinoids, was originally used to treat acne but with further clinical research, it has been proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The purpose of these peels is to accelerate the process of cell turnover, effectively removing the accumulation of dead skin cells on the surface and revealing fresh, revitalized skin cells. This transformation leads to a complexion that is both brighter and smoother.
When it comes to achieving specific skincare objectives, maintaining consistency is vital in medical-grade facials. Your clinician will recommend the ideal time interval between treatments, although typically a monthly appointment is advised to maximize the cumulative advantages.
