No matter how carefully you follow your skincare routine, summertime fun can be damaging to your skin. The sun, of course, is one enemy you want to take seriously. However, air conditioning, sandy ocean breezes, and all the heat and humidity of a New Jersey summer also take a toll.
Fortunately, we’re living in a time when medical science and advanced technology offer a multitude of nonsurgical skincare treatments, including medical-grade facials, that can help restore your skin’s youthful vibrance.
At Marina Medispa, skincare expert Dr. Marina Metelitsin often recommends her patients consider medical-grade facials because they deliver amazing cosmetic results, can improve your skin’s health, and allow us to customize the facial for your specific skincare needs.
The difference between medical and traditional spa-type facials
Medical facials are administered or very closely supervised by a qualified physician with years of training and expertise.
This is important because while many of the products used in the facial may sound familiar, they are much stronger than their non-medical counterparts. That’s why they return such amazing results but are only available for use by a physician.
A medical-grade facial typically involves cleansing, steaming, exfoliating, extracting, moisturizing, and massaging. We can also then customize your facial according to your needs.
We may, for instance, recommend additional therapies such as light therapy or dermabrasion, or apply a chemical peel during your facial to remove damaged, upper layers of skin. This greatly reduces, even eliminates, fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage.
It’s not only about how great you’ll look
At Marina Medispa, we’re delighted to offer medically-sound skincare treatments that help keep you looking as young as you feel. We’re also focused on what irregularities may indicate about your skin’s health. A medical facial can address many of those concerns as well.
Instead of just working from the top down, we provide treatments that encourage your body to repair and rebuild your skin from the inside out.
Therapies such as microneedling, chemical peels, and laser treatments boost your own natural production of elastin and collagen. These substances are the building blocks for toned, tight, and healthy skin.
We also offer various specialty serums that promote healing for skin that’s been damaged by environmental factors or lifestyle choices, such as prolonged sun exposure.
A medical-grade facial can complement other treatments
Medical facials are fabulous for reducing the appearance of aging and highly effective for treating:
- Dehydrated skin
- Sun damage
- Pigment changes in the skin, including increased redness
- Scarring due to previous acne outbreaks
These amazing facials also complement other noninvasive or minimally invasive therapies such as injectable dermal fillers that restore volume to your face, Botox® treatments to minimize wrinkles, or laser resurfacing to dramatically improve your skin’s tone and texture.
A medical-grade facial helps prepare your skin for these treatments and improves post-treatment results.
Medical-grade facials are patient-focused and optimized for effectiveness and safety
At Marina Medispa, your medical facial starts with a consultation that includes a careful examination of your skin, review of your medical history, and a discussion surrounding your expectations regarding the treatment.
We then design your medical-grade facial to safely address your skincare needs so you obtain the best results possible. We can also create a daily skincare regimen that keeps your skin looking and feeling its best throughout the year.
