Medical Facials vs Salon Facials: What’s the difference?
Forget facials which are just out to help you unwind. With our hectic pace of life, facials should be therapeutic and serve a purpose: give you results. Medical facials (e.g. Medical Peel Facial with I2PL), unlike those in a salon, are administered by well-trained medical aestheticians who have an in-depth understanding of your skin’s anatomy and physiology. They are also trained in advanced skin care by medical professionals such as aesthetic doctors to recommend a customized, effective skin solution specifically for you.
Medical facials typically start with a detailed analysis of your skin type and problems. Whereas salon facials are usually the same for every client, medical facials are tailored to you. The problems are clearly listed, a treatment plan is put forth and then skillfully executed by trained medical aestheticians. Although it may sound intimidating, medical facials can also be a somewhat relaxing experience.
Moreover, medical facials typically use medical grade products designed by doctors which are more effective than over-the-counter or salon-grade products. These include light chemical peels, light-based devices such as I2PL etc. Hence, whether you’re looking to lifting ageing skin, treat pesky acne, or eliminate pigmentation, medical facials are an affordable and superior option to meet your skin care goals.
One of the best Medical Facials in Singapore
This highly sought-after Signature Medical Peel Facial with I2PL combines the many benefits of a light chemical peel with the power of intense-pulsed light. It is best suited for those with acne, ageing skin or pigmentation.
SkinLab The Medical Spa exclusively use medical grade skin care products in the chemical peel to powerfully stimulate collagen and gently exfoliate dead skin cells. This effectively improves the skin by reducing acne, acne scarring, erasing sun damage, evening skin tone and smoothing texture. Light chemical peels are cost-effective, and are best done regularly to keep your skin soft, radiant and glowing.
In addition, most clients choose to add on I2PL Photorejuvenation to boost the effectiveness of Signature Medical Peel Facial. I2PL is an improved version of Intense-Pulsed Light (IPL) technology and can be used to treat a variety of skin problems such as acne marks, pigmentation and rejuvenate damaged skin.
If you are worried about pain, do not be. You may experience a little discomfort as the flashes of light energy comes into contact with your face but it is highly tolerable. After the 20 minute procedure, there is hardly any downtime and you may resume regular activities although I will recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen after Medical Peel Facial with I2PL.
