Medical Grade Facials Q & A

What is a medical-grade facial?

Medical-grade facials combine intense nonsurgical treatments and procedures that can enhance cosmetic results and reduce recovery time. While similar to a traditional spa facial, a medical-grade facial involves the use of medical tools and products to yield stronger effects. This more advanced approach to facial treatment is customized to your skin’s particular needs, providing a more intense experience.

What happens during a medical-grade facial?

A medical-grade facial begins with a consultation with our specialist, followed by a more invigorating version of traditional spa facial procedures, including:

  • Cleansing
  • Steaming
  • Exfoliating
  • Extracting
  • Moisturizing
  • Massaging

Additional therapies may follow, such as light therapy or dermabrasion, which removes outer layers of skin.

Marina MediSpa also recommends intense-pulsed light (IPL) photofacial treatments and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to minimize the appearance of brown spots, redness, sun damage, and more. Another possible follow-up procedure, microneedling, involves moving a series of tiny needles across the skin’s surface. 

For clear, younger-looking skin, Marina MediSpa helps stimulate new tissue growth with laser skin resurfacing and PRP therapy. The team also offers RF microneedling and PRP therapy, which uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate the deepest layers of the dermis, effectively tightening skin and providing dramatic scar reduction. 

Marina Medispa also offers various serums to aid growth and healing in the skin and chemical peels combined with PRP therapy to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production.

What conditions can be improved with a medical-grade facial?

Our team will customize your treatment to the particular needs of your skin. A medical-grade facial can improve:

  • Signs of aging
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Sun damage
  • Acne
  • Erythema (reddening of the skin)

If you’re receiving other treatments, a medical-grade facial can prepare your skin for those procedures and may improve their results.

What can you expect from your medical-grade facial?

Your medical-grade facial may last 30-90 minutes, depending on your exact treatment plan. Since it’s designed for more effective and intense results, you might notice that the medical-grade facial is less relaxing but more invigorating than a traditional facial.

Your skin may feel slightly warm or appear red temporarily, but this should subside within a few hours. Ultimately, your skin looks:

  • Smoother
  • Tighter
  • Brighter
  • Clearer

After a medical-grade facial, your face has an overall lifted look, and if you continue your medical-grade facials, their effects accumulate over time. A monthly treatment yields optimal results, but even the occasional facial can give your skin that extra glow.

When your daily skincare routine just isn’t doing your face justice, a medical-grade facial is a convenient way to enhance your skin. Call Marina Medispa today, or book an appointment online.
