From Microdermabrasion to HIFU- Which Medical Facial is right for you?

When it comes to skincare, there is a wide range of treatments available, each designed to target specific concerns and conditions. Medical facials are an effective way to improve the appearance and health of your skin, and they offer a variety of benefits that go beyond what you can achieve with traditional spa facials.

In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at some of the most popular medical facials, including Microdermabrasion, Laser Skin Rejuvenation, CIT Treatments, and HIFU, and help you determine which one is right for you based on your skin type and concerns.

Clairderm Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure suitable for people with sun damage, acne, deep lines, pigmentation, and more. Corundum crystals are used to gently abrade layers of dead and damaged skin cells, and a vacuum suction whisks away the crystals and abraded skin particles. The procedure increases microcirculation, bringing nutrients to the skin and improving the appearance of imperfections. Clairderm Microdermabrasion focuses on safety, hygiene, comfort, and flexibility of the procedure. The treatment incorporates the highest industry standards for hygiene with superior performance, resulting in smoother, brighter, firmer, and healthier-looking skin.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation or Laser Fractional resurfacing, is another popular medical facial that can address a wide range of skin concerns, including age spots, sun damage, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. This treatment uses laser technology to stimulate collagen production and promote the growth of healthy skin cells, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion. Laser Skin Rejuvenation can be customised to meet your specific needs, and multiple technologies and treatment protocols are often used in combination to provide synergistic and successful results.

CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy) Treatments, also known as Skin Needling, work by creating micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, triggering the body’s natural healing response and stimulating collagen production. This treatment is ideal for addressing concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, and it can also improve the overall texture and firmness of the skin. A minimum course of three treatments, at two-week intervals, is recommended to achieve optimal results.

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is the next generation in non-surgical facial rejuvenation, offering natural, long-lasting results without damaging the skin’s surface. This treatment involves using highly concentrated ultrasound waves to penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production, resulting in tighter, firmer, and more lifted skin. HIFU is particularly effective in addressing concerns such as sagging skin on the neck, cheeks, eyebrows, and eyelids, as well as enhancing jawline definition and smoothing the décolletage. Results can be seen immediately after the treatment, with full results visible three to six months later.

To conclude, choosing the right medical facial for your skin type and concerns can be a challenging task, but with the help of a professional skincare expert, you can achieve the desired results. Each of the treatments we discussed in this blog offers unique benefits, and the best way to determine which one is right for you is to consult with a skincare professional. Whether you opt for Microdermabrasion, Laser Skin Rejuvenation, CIT Treatments, or HIFU, you can rest assured that you are taking a step towards healthier, more radiant skin.
