What is a Medical Grade Facial?
Medical facials are a safe and effective way of complementing other noninvasive treatments such as Botox, injectable dermal fillers, or laser resurfacing or even maintaining or improving skin quality and pigmentation in the absence of any other treatment in both men and women. The facial can also help prepare your skin for a treatment and improve results after the treatment, especially with laser procedures. The treatments are administered by a medical aesthetician trained in advanced skin care.
The main difference between a medical facial and a Classic European or spa is the use of medical grade products and more advanced chemical peels.
Medical Facials are custom tailored to your skin’s needs and generally follow the same steps as a spa facial—cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and moisturizing—but on a more intense level.
Who is a candidate?
Men and women of all ages and skin types can benefit from a medical facial due to the fact they are customized to the individual. Women who are trying to become pregnant, or are pregnant or breastfeeding will not be able to use retinoids or receive peels but can still receive the other components of the facial. Men with significant facial hair will have a more limited treatment area. Most patients will find that keeping with a consistent schedule of medical facials, such as on a monthly basis, will see the best results from treatment and J Sweat Plastic Surgery offers several different loyalty plans to encourage and reward regular visits.
Medical facials/treatments can:
- improve the tone and texture of the skin
- increase collagen production
- promote cellular turnover
- unclog pores
- reduce redness in the skin
- erase broken capillaries
- significantly decrease unwanted pigmentation
- smooth fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars.
In addition, aesthetic treatments at J Sweat Plastic Surgery include the use of medical grade products, which have higher concentrations of active ingredients than spas carry and are supported and proven effective by scientific data and clinical studies. Just as importantly, medical grade products can only be purchased through a medical doctor.
