WHAT IS A MEDICAL FACIAL?
Medical facials utilize prescription or medical grade products (products only available to M.D.’s) for anti-aging, skin smoothing, or acne and employ full extraction techniques to clean out pores.
Dr. Christine’s medical facials provide:
• Improved skin texture and clarity
• Reduction of enlarged pores
• Minimization of fine lines and wrinkles
• Acne control
• Brighter and more luminous skin
HOW CAN MEDICAL FACIALS ALLOW ME TO ACHIEVE/MAINTAIN HEALTHY AND CLEAR SKIN?
From anti-aging to sensitive acne prone individuals, regular medical facials help you achieve and maintain younger looking, smooth skin. Regardless of your skin type (normal, dry, oily or combination skin) pores will become clogged. Clean pores are the key to supple and vibrant skin. This is especially true for acne prone skin, as clogged pores left unattended to become more and more inflamed, leading to breakouts.
Dr. Christine’s medical grade products repair and refine skin texture by gently removing the dead skin cells that can dull your skin’s appearance, clog pores and cause blackheads/whiteheads.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE A MEDICAL FACIAL?
Just as it is recommended that you have your teeth cleaned at least once per year to maintain healthy gums and teeth, individuals should have a medical facial at the very minimum of once per year. The reasoning behind this is that it’s nearly impossible for an individual to achieve the level of exfoliation and extraction that a medical facial can provide.
Most of Dr. Christine’s patients achieve and maintain beautifully clear skin by adhering to her skin care regime including approximately 3-4 medical facials per year.
WHAT IF I’VE ALWAYS HAD PROBLEM SKIN?
Although there is no cure for acne, you can achieve beautiful, clear and glowing skin with proper maintenance. Dr. Christine provides complementary consultation to evaluate your current skin’s condition and recommend a treatment program to reach your skin appearance goals.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A MEDICAL FACIAL?
As skin care requirements are unique to each individual, Dr. Christine customizes each medical facial to meet the specific needs of each patient. There are however, four essential components that are included in every medical facial:
• Vibradermabrasion OR Chemical peel (anti-aging or acne)
• Extractions (removal of clogged pore material)
HOW MUCH TIME DOES A MEDICAL FACIAL TAKE?
Your medical facial appointment with Dr. Christine is scheduled for 45-60 minutes.
HOW MUCH DOES A MEDICAL FACIAL COST?
