What Is A Medical Facial?

A medical facial, also referred to as “medi facial” is a skincare regimen intended to target underlying concerns and support existing medical aesthetic treatments. While standard facials concentrate on surface-level cleansing and relaxation, medi facials go a step further by looking at deeper factors affecting the skin’s condition.

A medical facial treatment typically begins with a comprehensive skin analysis, which can be tailored by a medical doctor to explore or seek to manage specific skin concerns. Medical facials are commonly used by individuals seeking a more targeted approach to skincare due to persistent concerns or issues with appearance.

Who Is A Medi Facial For?

Medical facials typically include deeper cleansing, exfoliation, and nourishment treatments compared to purely aesthetic facials. They are a skincare solution designed for individuals facing specific skin issues like acne, hyperpigmentation, or premature ageing.

Explore our range of medical facial treatments for various skin concerns.

1.Nd:YAG Laser Therapy

Nd:YAG lasers deliver a 1064nm wavelength of light that penetrates deep into the skin to destroy acne bacteria and shrink sebaceous glands to reduce oil. As the laser energy is delivered to each treatment area, you may feel a sensation equivalent to a rubber band lightly snapping on the skin.

This laser can also help in pigment clearing and stimulating collagen production.

2. IPL

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a broad-based non-invasive light therapy. This medical facial treatment uses broad wavelength light to encourage the regeneration of new skin tissue, which may help improve the appearance of sun and age spots, acne scars and rosacea. IPL is often combined with other facial treatment types to tackle more complex issues such as blemishes, acne, redness, or dull and uneven skin texture.

3. Radiofrequency

Radiofrequency is a non-surgical medical facial treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate dermal collagen production resulting in a reduction of the fine lines and tightening loose skin. It increases blood flow and thus boosts the oxygen level in the skin, giving the skin a smooth and radiant appearance. RF treatments can also help induce tissue re-modelling and production of new collagen and elastin, which helps restore even skin texture.

Do note that radiofrequency treatments are not suitable for skin with broken capillaries and rosacea.

4. Exfoliating / Chemical / Gentle Milk Peels

As we age, cell turnover occurs at a much slower rate. Medical peels are intended to help encourage active cell renewal by stimulating new skin cell production at the basal layers. This can help clarify oily skin, unclog and tighten pores, and give the skin a brighter and more vibrant appearance.

Ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) may be used in medical peel facials, in order to lighten scarring, even out skin texture, and tackle pigmentation. Individuals with sensitivity to AHAs and other strong active ingredients may not be suitable for medical peels, and should consult with a medical doctor to find out more.

5. Iontophoresis

Also known as a Galvanic Facial, iontophoresis involves passing a mild electric current through the skin to stimulate and rejuvenate skin cells. This is meant to encourage deep infusion of nutrients into the skin, with the aim of improving the quality and firmness of the complexion. Some aesthetic clinics may further customise this medi facial treatment through the use of targeted serums meant to lift, moisturise, desensitise, clarify, or whiten the skin.

6. Vitamin C Booster

Vitamin C has various benefits for the skin, including protecting against UV damage and environmental pollution and inhibiting melanin production, leading to pigmentation. Medical facials that utilise Vitamin C are typically intended to achieve a bouncy and even skin tone, with less visible dark eye circles and wrinkles. Vitamin C medi facials can also aid in healing acne scars, by promoting the regeneration of collagen and elastin.

7. LED Light Therapy

LED (Light Emitting Diode) lights are a non-surgical medi facial option that uses different light frequencies, such as blue and red LED lights, to penetrate your skin at different depths and target specific skin care needs.

Red LED lights are typically used for treating the epidermis, or the outer layer of skin. It can help stimulate collagen proteins, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving uneven skin tone. Red LED light can also reduce inflammation and improve circulation within the skin, for a range of effects.

Blue LED light therapy also helps to reduce inflammation and promote tissue repair. In addition, it can be used to target oil glands and reduce oil production activity, resulting in clearer complexion and acne.

Medi facials are beneficial to individuals with acne and inflammation, but can also help with issues related to sensitive skin, inflammation, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. While a medical facial should always be customised to suit your unique skin type and needs, here are some steps you can expect during a typical medi facial process:

  • Consultation: A medically-qualified doctor or General Practitioner with special interest in aesthetics will conduct a one-on-one consultation to evaluate your skin’s condition and discuss your specific concerns. During the session, clients typically discuss their skincare concerns, medical history, and desired outcomes. The doctor will then recommend a personalised treatment plan based on their unique needs and goals.
  • Thorough cleansing: The face is deep cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, and oil. This primes and prepares the skin for subsequent stages.
  • Exfoliation: The exfoliation methods used in a medical facial are suitable for acne-prone skin, and intended to unclog pores and help to reduce breakouts.
  • Extraction: Manual pore extraction is performed if necessary to remove blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities that may contribute to acne.
  • Application of medical-grade products (If necessary): Medi facials may use specific products intended to combat acne through reducing inflammation, controlling excess oil production, and promoting clear and healthy skin tone and texture.
  • Use of medical-grade machines (If necessary): In addition to targeted skincare products, medical-grade machines may be utilised to further enhance the medi facial process. These may have different aims, such as reducing inflammation, or stimulating collagen production for healing of acne-afflicted areas.

Individual results will vary, and it is key to follow the doctor’s recommendations for post-treatment maintenance and skincare to ensure optimal results. Additional follow-ups may be recommended to monitor results, or to optimise the subsequent treatment regimen.

You may see improvement in your skin within four to six sessions of our medical facial treatments, with pores becoming more refined over time. You can expect reduced acne production, improvement of post-acne spots and reduced redness.

However, please note that individual results may vary based on skin type, lifestyle, and other factors. As such, the number of sessions required for visible results will vary.

There is minimal downtime for our medical facials. Please note that this can differ across people with varied skin types and conditions.

It is commonly recommended to conduct monthly medical facial treatments to maintain the condition of your skin.

You may consider pairing a medical facial with the acne red mark laser, Lasemd fractional resurfacing laser, Rejuran Salmon DNA Injection 婴儿针 or RF microneedling treatments to further control acne and brighten skin complexion.

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Facial

Yes, a medical facial is suitable for sensitive skin and can be customised to suit an individual’s unique skin type and needs. Medi facials for sensitive skin can help with improving skin hydration to lessen irritation, reducing redness and inflammation, and assisting in recovery and protection from sun or UV damage.

However, it’s crucial to consult with a medical doctor beforehand to assess your individual suitability, or to address potential causes for sudden onset sensitive skin. A qualified doctor will be able to assess your symptoms and subsequently recommend a treatment plan using hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic products if necessary. Additionally, always disclose your skin history and any allergies or sensitivities prior to the facial treatment to ensure the proper ingredients and treatment options can be utilised.

Generally, medical facials are suitable for individuals with acne, including teenagers and adults. It’s essential to consult your doctor ahead of time for an accurate assessment of suitability for medi facials based on age, skin type, and medical history.

Yes, pre-treatment instructions for medical facials include avoiding direct sun exposure and tanning beds for at least a week prior to your appointment. It is also crucial to keep your skin well-hydrated and steer clear of aggressive skin exfoliation techniques like scrubs or at-home peels. The medical doctor performing the treatment may also provide personalised guidelines tailored to your skin’s specific needs.

The frequency of medical facials depends on the individual as it takes into account factors such as your skin type, specific concerns, and the treatment plan outlined. For general skin maintenance, your doctor may suggest a monthly session. However, if you’re dealing with particular skin issues, more frequent treatments may be proposed initially to work towards improving your skin condition.

Yes, medical facials may be combined with other aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels, laser treatments, or microneedling radiofrequency to better address specific skin concerns. It is imperative to consult a medical doctor ahead of time to ascertain your suitability for these treatments. They can accurately assess your skin’s condition, needs, and tolerance levels to ensure a safe and effective combined treatment, thereby minimising the risk of complications.

It is generally advised to avoid applying makeup immediately after a medical facial to minimise any potential adverse reactions, as well as to allow your skin to recover from potential redness or irritation. Wearing makeup right away may clog pores, hinder the absorption of beneficial ingredients, and may cause irritation. Most healthcare professionals will advise waiting at least 24 hours before using any makeup products.

Some gentler types of medi facials, like hydrating or anti-ageing rejuvenation facials, may be less likely to irritate the skin. In these cases, individuals may be able to wear makeup within 24 hours from the treatment if no signs of irritation or redness are present. However, you should always use gentle, non-comedogenic products, and avoid harsh or exfoliating products until your skin is fully recovered from the medi facial. Any makeup applied should also be thoroughly removed prior to bedtime.
