Facials are considered an important method of making your face glow. But, did you know that the facials offered at your favorite spa or parlor vary from those offered at your dermatologist? These are termed medi-facials. Wondering what the difference is? We're here to decode it.
"Medi-facials are specific facials in which advanced technology, researched protocols, and science-based ingredients are used," says Dr Priya Talageri, the best dermatologist in Bangalore. Dr Priya's Skin & Hair Clinic "They tend to focus on specific ailments and conditions, like acne, scarring, spots, sun damage, dehydration, and sensitive skin. These are highly effective as compared to generic facials."
Aesthetic medi-facials help improve skin tone, texture, and collagen production and, thus, slow down the aging process, explains Dr Priya. "The medi-facials are a mixture of technology, like advanced lasers, light devices, exfoliation technology like the water jet, and hydradermabrasion, which helps remove dead skin cells and speed up the cellular turnover. The results are appreciable and long-lasting when followed with a good skin care plan. The generic facials offered in salons are generally followed by steam and bleach and milder and more pampering products. Unfortunately, they are not effective in treating specific skin conditions."
Your regular parlor could be doing you more harm than good. The creams can cause harsh skin exfoliation, damaging the skin's barrier system. The creams massaged onto the skin can block pores and cause active breakouts. Regular salon facials only give temporary results and generally last a few days. Always research the products they use on your skin and do a patch test to see if you're sensitive to any ingredients.
There are different types of Medi facials
If you want to target specific skin concerns, have a big day, like your wedding, and then go for medical facials. Medi-facials have minimal downtime and also do not have any side effects. They tend to improve the skin tone and texture, and immediately give a brighter-looking skin that keeps looking better, and also improve skin conditions like acne, acne marks, fine lines, and pigmentation.
