Experience the benefits of getting a facial from a licensed medical aesthetician
Healthy Skin from the Inside Out
If you want your skin to glow and look its absolute best, see a licensed medical aesthetician. A regular skin care regimen including periodic cosmetic treatments and medical facials in addition to the right products for your unique skin type is just as important as eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep. Just adding products to the outside of your skin is not enough to truly restore and rejuvenate your skin health.
Personally Customized Treatment Plan
Lisa, a medical aesthetician, will analyze and assess your personal skin needs to ensure you get the results you desire. Whether it’s teen or adult acne, aging skin, rosacea or melasma that is bothering you, our team will listen to your concerns and customize a treatment plan including medical facials to properly care for your skin type, tone, and texture.
Medical Facials Work on A Cellular Level
Your skin takes 3-4 weeks to complete a full “life-cycle”of shedding and regenerating skin cells. We recommend scheduling a medical facial, microdermabrasion, or chemical peel treatment every 4-6 weeks for maximum benefits. You’ll begin to notice improvements to your skin tone, texture and appearance instantly!
What to Expect During a Facial
Deep Pore Cleansing
The first step of a facial is a deep pore cleansing. We use medical grade skin care products and equipment which assist in a deeper cleansing of the skin without disrupting its natural barrier function, which has a balanced pH, oils and lipids that are essential to skin’s health.
The second step of a medical facial is a thorough skin analysis and discussion of your concerns. Our trained Aestheticians examine your skin, she will touch the skin as she looks at it under a magnifying lamp to assess your skin needs. She will then determine your skin type and the products and treatments she will use for your customized medical facial.
Exfoliation, either physical (microdermabrasion crystals) and/or chemical peels (acids and enzymes) stimulate cell renewal, removes dry skin, breaks down stubborn discoloration (brown spots) and fades post-breakout (red/dark) marks. Exfoliation also allows active ingredients to absorb deeper within the skin for maximum skin renewal and optimal results.
Steam warms the surface of the skin, making it more receptive to treatment (masks, serums, etc.). It also enhances circulation and softens debris inside the pores for easier removal of blackheads and whiteheads.
Face, Neck and Décolletage Massage
Helps to promote lymphatic drainage– which removes toxins and reduces fluid retention. By flushing out these toxins we also promote circulation, leaving your skin glowing and more youthful looking.
Any congestion of the pores such as blackheads or whiteheads will be removed. Having extractions performed regularly helps keep skin looking smooth and your complexion clear. Our Aestheticians are trained on how to properly remove these impurities and how to treat the skin afterward.
Used at the end of the medical facial, masks help lower the temperature of the skin to reduce redness and to deeply hydrate. Masks are also important because they target specific skin conditions. They can be soothing, calming, moisturizing, purifying, or stimulating and work in different ways depending on your skin type and condition.
Tone, Hydrate and Broad Spectrum SPF
The final step in the process will be the application of topical skin care products. A toner will be applied to restore the skin’s natural pH, and to help prepare the skin for proper absorption of moisturizer. After the toner, she will hydrate the skin by applying a moisturizer suited to your skin type. Moisturizer is imperative to any skin care routine, regardless of skin type, as it replenishes much-needed water back into your skin. Lastly, we will apply a Broad Spectrum SPF product that will protect your skin from damaging UVB (sunburn) and UVA (aging) rays.
