5 Reasons to Swap Your Beauty Salon Facials for Medical-Grade Treatments
If you’re ready to start making real changes to your skin and get it glowing then its time to ditch beauty salon facials and start with medical grade treatments.
What’s the difference between a facial and a medical-grade treatment
Whilst they are excellent for relaxing and hydrating the skin, once you reach a point where you want to see actual changes to your skin, or want to tackle real skin concerns, like pigmentation or wrinkles it’s time to kiss them goodbye and realise that the most effective type of facial is a medical grade treatment.
Whilst pain is not the name of the game, real change to your skin comes from creating controlled inflammation to stimulate your skin into turning over and renewing itself and the only way you’re going to get that is through in clinic skin treatments
In clinic medical grade treatments are more able to address specific skin concerns and use active ingredients and often needles or acids to get you much more significant results than can be seen with just at home skincare or from beauty palour facials
In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the key benefits of medical grade facial treatments and how they can help you achieve the glowing, healthy-looking skin you’ve always wanted.
1. Improved Skin Texture and Tone with microneedling and peels
One of the primary benefits of medical aesthetic treatments, like microneedling and chemical peels, is that they significantly improve the texture and tone of your skin.
Unlike facials, which are primarily designed to cleanse and hydrate the skin, medical aesthetic treatments work deeper to address issues like acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, triggers natural healing and stimulates collagen
Chemical peels use a combination of acids to remove dead skin cells to promote reveal brighter, smoother skin.
2. Stimulate collagen and Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Another major benefit of medical aesthetic treatments is that they can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Facials can certainly help hydrate and plump up the skin temporarily, but they don’t provide the same long-lasting results as medical aesthetic treatments.
Microneedling and chemical peels both stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production, which can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles over time.
3. Deeper Penetration of Skincare Products
When you invest in medical aesthetic treatments like microneedling, you’re not just improving the appearance of your skin in the short term—you’re also setting yourself up for better results from your skincare products in the long term.
Microneedling creates tiny channels in the skin, allowing skincare products to penetrate more deeply and work more effectively. This means that you can add ingredients like hyaluronic acid, and they can actually penetrate INTO the skin and do their work rather than sitting on the surface of the skin. These give your skin a glow from the inside, rather than the sweaty glow you get after a facial
4. Treatments that lift your skin
If sagging is your problem then many beauty salon facials will fall short of actually being able to do anything to lift this sagging skin.
To effectively reduce an early turkey neck or tighten the skin under the eyes you need controlled inflammation with micro needling or chemical peels.
Or if the situation is severe then bringing out the big guns with Morpheus 8 (radio frequency micro needling) to target the muscle and fat layers and lift them. Over time you will see an improvement that can rival surgery and at a fraction of the price.
5. Customized Treatment Plans
Finally, one of the biggest advantages of medical aesthetic treatments is that they can be customized to meet your unique skincare needs.
Unlike facials, which pretend to be customised but are really just a one-size-fits-all approach, medical aesthetic treatments can be tailored to your specific concerns and goals. This means that you’ll get a more personalized treatment plan that’s designed to help you achieve the best possible results.
Overall, while beauty parlour facials can be a great way to pamper yourself and give your skin a temporary boost, they simply can’t match the long-term benefits of medical aesthetic treatments like microneedling and chemical peels.
