When it comes to professional facial treatments, there is a difference between a day spa facial and a medical spa facial. The biggest difference is that a med spa facial will use medical grade skincare products and devices to give you maximum results. Skin Analysis The first step in your med spa journey will begin with a Visia Skin Analysis. At this appointment a skincare specialist will take 9 different scans of your face that will show above and below the skin surface. A customized treatment plan including medical grade skincare products and services will be designed specially to meet your skincare needs and wants. Cleansing of the Skin More than your spa facials that supposedly clean and get rid of all the dirt on your face, medical facials treat your skin from the inside to the external surface of the skin. To start off, you can expect a deep pore cleansing that usually uses products and equipment that allows your aesthetician to deeply clean the skin while maintaining its natural barrier function that is characterized by balanced pH, oils and lipids. More than Skin Deep Our medical grade treatments are working on the cellular level of the skin, which work the best because it deals with the full cycle of skin regeneration. We recommend receiving a hydraFacial, microdermabrasion or medical strength chemical peel every 4-6 weeks. Once you begin to do this, you will soon see the improvements. The Essential Exfoliation To stimulate cell renewal, exfoliation is offered. This can be either physical like the microdermabrasion crystals, dermaplane or with the use of chemical peels like acids and enzymes. Aside from the much need skin renewal, they are effective in removing built up dry skin, takes care of discoloration, and minimally erases breakout marks. The active ingredients are also allowed to be absorbed deeper within the skin to maximize their skin renewal properties. Get Some Steam As minor as it sounds, steam is also essential to good skin care because it warms the skin’s surface to make it more ready and receptive to the other treatments that the aesthetician will perform. Circulation is also expected to be enhanced by this step as well as the softening of the debris inside the pores. This will make it easy to remove unwanted blackheads and whiteheads. Manual Extractions For congestion of the pores like the blackheads and whiteheads shall be manually removed. Such extractions should be performed regularly to maintain the smoothness and clear complexion that it leaves on the patient. Toning and Hydration At the end of your treatment, you are given the most important parts of the facial, beginning with the use of the toner that just brings back the skin’s natural pH. This stage also prepares the skin to absorb the treatment serums and moisturizer that it is about to receive. Next step would be the hydration of the skin that will be accomplished by applying moisturizers that are recommended based on your skin type. One of the most vital parts of any facial, moisturizing should be done always, no matter what skin-type you have. To protect your skin, an SPF of 30 or higher is added, protecting your skin from the harmful and damaging effects of the sun.
