Medicated facials, also known as medical facials or clinical facials, are advanced skincare treatments that combine therapeutic ingredients, advanced technologies, and targeted techniques to address specific skin concerns and improve overall skin health. Unlike traditional spa facials, which focus primarily on relaxation and pampering, medicated facials are designed to deliver visible and lasting results.

Medicated facials are highly customizable and can be tailored to address a wide range of skin concerns, including acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, aging, and dehydration. Depending on the individual’s unique needs and goals, a variety of skincare products, treatments, and technologies may be incorporated into the facial to achieve optimal results.

Common components of medicated facials may include:

  1. Cleansing and Exfoliation: The facial begins with thorough cleansing and exfoliation to remove dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, allowing subsequent treatments to penetrate more deeply and effectively.

  2. Extractions: Manual extractions may be performed to unclog pores and remove blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities from the skin, improving clarity and texture.

  3. Chemical Peels: Medicated facials may include the application of chemical peels containing exfoliating acids such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or lactic acid to remove damaged outer layers of skin, stimulate collagen production, and reveal smoother, more radiant skin.

  4. Serums and Treatments: Targeted serums, ampoules, or treatment masks containing active ingredients such as antioxidants, peptides, growth factors, and skin brighteners may be applied to address specific concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or aging.

  5. Advanced Technologies: Medicated facials may incorporate advanced skincare technologies such as microdermabrasion, microcurrent therapy, LED light therapy, or radiofrequency (RF) energy to enhance results, promote collagen production, and improve overall skin tone and texture.

  6. Sun Protection: The facial concludes with the application of sunscreen or sun protection products to protect the skin from UV damage and maintain the integrity of the treatment.

Medicated facials are performed by licensed estheticians or skincare professionals trained in advanced skincare techniques and product formulations. The frequency of treatments may vary depending on the individual’s skin concerns and goals, with some individuals benefiting from monthly facials for ongoing maintenance and others requiring less frequent treatments for targeted concerns.
