Medical Grade Facials
Many of us rush through life trying to look our best with the latest fashions or accessories, but we often take our skin for granted or cover its imperfections with make-up. Even something as simple and non-invasive as a facial can change your skin!
Unlike a regular day spa facial, our medically enhanced facials provide deep benefits including medical grade exfoliation and light chemical peels, and can even be combined with laser facials for maximal benefits! We use only medical grade skin care products to help restore your skin’s youthful appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
Dermaplaning is a skin resurfacing and exfoliating procedure used to remove the thin, top, outer layer of skin (dead epidermal cells) and fine, soft hairs. It is performed using a special surgical blade to gently scrape away that top layer of problem skin – improving fine lines and revealing smoother, healthier skin. Treatments take approximately 20 minutes, are painless, and can be done every 4 weeks.
Your facial at RESTOR may include a light chemical peel which will be customized to your skin type and goals. During the peel, you will feel mild tingling or sensation of prickly heat. These are light peels – you may experience light “face dandruff” but no true peeling. This medical-grade exfoliation will leave your skin smooth and glowing!
Hold any retinol or Retin-A containing products, or active product such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, or salicylate for 3-4 days. Be careful to use sunscreen liberally for the next week as your skin has been exfoliated and may be more sensitive to sunburn than normal.
Because Medical Grade Exfoliation is non-invasive, it has a low risk of complications and is one of the safest skin rejuvenation procedures available. Some patients report redness or dry feeling in their skin after a treatment, but this is temporary. Typical care following your Medical Grade Exfoliation includes using moisturizers and sunscreens and avoiding sun exposure for a few days. There is no downtime for this “lunch hour” procedure, and most people return to their regular activities immediately.
Medical Grade Facials can improve or eliminate superficial skin problems. They work on all skin types and colors to produce subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. However – these treatments are designed to help restore a healthy glow to your skin and make other procedures such as peels and laser treatments more effective. It is not powerful enough to actually reduce fine lines, tighten skin, remove scarring, or take away brown spots. These problems are better addressed with lasers, injectable or microneedling. Ask your provider which of these treatments may be right for you!
The answer to that is a resounding yes! Not only can you combine Medical Grade Facials deeper treatments such as lasers or microneedling - you should! By removing the outermost layer of the epidermis, a Medical Grade Facials allow whatever rejuvenating treatment that follows it to have a deeper and more long-lasting effect. We recommend that every laser treatment be preceded by a Medical Grade Exfoliation for optimal results.
