One of the most common cosmetic treatments is facials, but there are so many new types of facials for all different skin types and skin concerns. Facials are recommended for hydration, acne treatment, and overall deep cleansing of your skin. But are facials good for your skin? Where should you get a facial? Medical grade facials are a great option if you are unsure what type of facial is best for your skin. Our trusted Dr. Wassef from the Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery Institute is here to share more about medical grade facials before your appointment.


What Is a Medical Grade Facial?

A medical grade facial is similar to a classic facial; however, it is performed in a cosmetic doctor’s office who uses only medical-grade tools. Facials are skincare remedies that use a combination of therapeutic treatments to clean, exfoliate, extract, massage and moisturize your skin. This non-invasive procedure is conducted in a medical facility by certified dermatologists. You will be on your way to healthier and younger-looking skin after your first medical grade facial.

Are Facials Good For Your Skin?

When you get your first medical grade facial, your skin will never feel better. Your esthetician will use medical grade products and tools to begin scraping away any dead skin, extract open pores, and add more hydration to your skin. All medi-facials are different and are built based on your own skin and concerns. Facials are not only good for your skin, but your confidence will skyrocket.

When you get your medical grade facial, your esthetician will most likely perform other cosmetic treatments like chemical peels or even microneedling to improve facial conditions like scarring, large pores, fine lines, and more. Your doctor will go over everything before your medi-facial to make sure you understand your custom plan.

Keep in mind, though, you might experience some redness, swelling, peeling, and even an allergic reaction to the products. Make sure you are open and honest with your doctor ahead of time to reduce the risk of the side effects of medical grade facials. Facials are an excellent option if you are seeking treatment for your skin concerns.

Who Should I See for a Professional Facial?

While there are several ways you can perform a facial, it’s always a good idea to seek out a professional dermatologist. Your licensed and professional doctor will be able to perform the multi-step skin treatment to tackle all of your concerns while taking the necessary precautions. Sure, you can go out and purchase an at-home spa kit, but you have no way of knowing which ingredients are right for your skin or will irritate it. It’s important you go to a licensed, experienced professional who can provide you with the highest level of care as they clean, exfoliate, and, most importantly, nourish your skin.
