What is a medi-facial?
Medi-facials are skin treatments that are specially formulated to treat certain skin conditions. Your dermatologist will customise a medi-facial for your particular skin type and condition.
What types of medi-facial are available?
There are a number of procedures that may form part of your medi-facial treatment. These include:
How does it work?
Generally, a medi-facial includes the same steps as a standard facial: cleansing, steaming, exfoliation and massage. The difference between a standard facial and a medi-facial, however, is the use of pharmaceutical chemicals and tools especially designed to deliver more dramatic, and longer-lasting results.
Why is it performed?
Because medi-facials can be carefully tailored to your particular needs, a number of conditions can be addressed with this type of treatment. The treatment can be performed on sensitive skins, or to help with the treatment of conditions like acne and rosacea. Medi-facials can also help to treat sun damage, pigmentation and scarring.
