We are big believers in bringing your inner glow to the skin’s surface. At Ageless Medical in Cooper City, Florida, we know that medical-grade facials are a fantastic way to help you achieve a glowing complexion. But we understand you might have questions about its efficacy and whether it’s worth it.
Whether you’re familiar with medical-grade facials, spa facials or new to the world of skin rejuvenation, we take pleasure in guiding you toward a skincare routine that will enhance the look and feel of your skin as you age.
In this article, we’ll answer some of the most common questions we receive, such as what exactly are medical-grade facials? How can they improve your skin’s health? And what is the science behind their effectiveness? So, let’s dive into this topic together and explore the wonders of medical-grade facials.
What Are Medical Grade Facials?
Medical-grade facials are the most gratifying way to brighten up your skin, get a deep exfoliation, and give the skin much-needed hydration. These facials are expertly administered by skilled medical aestheticians who follow protocols established by physicians.
This differentiation enables our treatment providers to utilize advanced clinic-grade solutions for addressing deeper layers of the skin (epidermis). As a result, these targeted solutions effectively address surface-level sun damage, pigmentation concerns, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles and improve overall skin texture.
Medical-grade facials are customized for your comfort level and skin concerns. This can range from chemical peels and diamond glow microdermabrasion treatments to HydraFacial treatments. Ultimately, a facial can leave you with smoother, clearer, and more youthful-looking skin that you’ll love showing off.
What are the Active Ingredients in a Medical Grade Facial?
Medical-grade solutions can consist of glycolic acid with at least 15% free acid value (FAV), a blend of alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), or a trichloroacetic acid (TCA), which is a stronger and deeper medical peel. These advanced solutions offer superior and expedited results, providing you with an enhanced outcome in a shorter timeframe.
- AHAs are naturally found in fruits and milk and can unveil a more radiant and evenly toned complexion by removing dead skin cells.
- BHAs, on the other hand, are great for penetrating deep into your pores and are often included in products for people with acne-prone skin.
- Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring humectant in our skin, responsible for keeping our skin hydrated and plump. Using hyaluronic acid in facials will give your skin a luminous and hydrating boost.
- Vitamin A, also known as retinoids, was originally used to treat acne, but with further clinical research, it has been proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
These peels are formulated to accelerate the process of cell turnover, effectively eliminating the accumulation of dead skin cells and revealing fresh, revitalized skin cells.
When it comes to specific skincare goals, maintaining consistency is essential with medical-grade facials. Your clinician will advise you on the optimal interval between treatments, typically with a monthly appointment to maximize the cumulative benefits.
Medical Grade Facials at Ageless Medical
Facials are a fantastic way to indulge in some self-care and give your face the love it deserves! During a facial, a skincare professional uses a combination of cleansing, exfoliating, and nourishing products customized to suit your unique skin type and concerns.
These products are formulated with results-driven active ingredients that work harmoniously to provide a safe and effective treatment to meet your needs.
Chemical Peels are a fast and effective way to give your skin a revitalizing and illuminating boost. The peel is a chemical exfoliation treatment that gently lifts dead skin cells while mildly improving the skin’s ability to regenerate collagen and elastin. This process will resurface new and fresh skin cells, resulting in a smoother and dewy complexion. Expect mild redness following the treatment, especially for sensitive skin types.
VI Peel is a medium-depth powerhouse peel that works to suppress melanin’s overproduction. This is one of the best treatment options for pigmentation and acne concerns and is safe for all skin types. This innovative peel targets melanogenesis—the production of melanin—at the source, which helps minimize stubborn post-acne scars and uneven tone for a brighter, smoother surface.
Diamond Dermabrasion Facial
Diamond Dermabrasion Facial, aka DiamondGlow™, is a fan favorite in our clinic. The treatment combines deep exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of hydrating serums to achieve the skin’s healthy balance.
The treatment starts with a deep manual cleanse to remove dirt and pollution, followed by exfoliation with a diamond treatment head for best hygienic practice. The exfoliation step removes dry and damaged skin sitting on the surface.
The next step is extraction, which uses vortex suction technology to effectively cleanse and remove the underlying sebum. Finally, we infuse antioxidant-rich serums to deliver hydration and target specific concerns such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, dull skin, or signs of aging.
Our clinic’s HydraFacial MD exfoliates dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously restoring skin hydration, leaving the skin supple and vibrant. The HydraFacial Ultra combines HydraFacial MD technology with an anti-aging booster serum.
The Alastin anti-aging booster helps clear out damaged collagen, and elastin helps support the skin’s natural ability to produce new elastin and collagen. The booster reduces the appearance of thinning skin, fine lines and wrinkles and improves overall texture and tone for a more youthful complexion.
What’s the best complementary treatment for facials?
“We almost always recommend Dermaplaning to add to any facial as it allows for exfoliation and better absorption of products into the skin.
Medical Grade skincare to use at home. To maintain the results of your facials, products are always recommended.” – Ageless Medical Treatment Provider
Dermaplaning exfoliates the skin, safely removes vellus hair (a.k.a “peach fuzz”) and allows for better absorption of products into the skin!
