Spa Facials VS. Medical Facials
What’s the difference?
Facials are offered anywhere from salons and spas to plastic surgeons’ and dermatologist' offices.
So, what are the differences between them?
If you choose to have a facial done at a spa, expect more of a relaxing and pampering experience. Skin issues can be addressed, but the ingredients are geared towards comfort and soothing. While they can be effective, they may not be as strong or medically-based as what you can get at a medical spa. Clinical Facials are not as relaxing or pampering; more attention is given to serious skin concerns and need a clinical approach to achieve the results they want. Stronger concentrations and prescription-strength ingredients are used, along with laser treatments, to tackle more serious skin concerns. Treating yourself to regular clinical facials is essential to maintain a regular pattern of exfoliation and healthy skin. When the skin is properly and frequently exfoliated, cell turnover rate ensues, which means softer skin that is more even in tone, less prone to breakouts and shows fewer signs of aging.

Chemical Peel Facials:
Chemical Peels are topically applied acids that create a uniform and controlled exfoliation designed to even out skin discoloration while smoothing and brightening the skin. Chemical peels are a great choice for treating rough, dehydrated, sun-damaged or acneicskin on the face, arms, back, chest, hands, and feet. While customizing the nature and depth of the peel, a significant number of layers can be exfoliated creating a fresh and vibrant appearance. Light, medium, and deep chemical peels all include extractions, lymphatic drainage facial massage, and customized mask.
