Spa Facials vs Medical Facials: What Is Right For You? 

It’s known by many, especially women, that facials are a way of passage to treat yourself and indulge in self-care. While facials can help provide deep relaxation and a way to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, facials are also an important part of skin maintenance. 

You may think that all facials are alike and can be achieved through simple at-home methods. However, did you know that there are many types of skin facials you can get, depending on your skin requirements? While spa and medical facials may appear similar, there are distinct differences that are important to be brought to your attention. 

If you’re interested in learning about the different ways to optimize your skin appearance, follow our Glow Medispa guide ahead. 

So, why are facials important in the first place? 

You may think that your daily skincare routine is enough to keep your skin healthy, however, did you know facials are an integral part of skin maintenance? Facials can help induce powerful exfoliation, and it is often a lot safer to be in a controlled environment with medical professionals, rather than experiment with at-home solutions. 

Through dermaplaning or microdermabrasion, we’ll be able to implement specialized exfoliation techniques. In addition to cleaning, Glow Medispa can help provide you with quality topical treatments that help to stimulate collagen production to help preserve skin elasticity, enhancing the appearance of youthful skin. Everyone knows that the best way to start the optimal makeup routine is by looking after your skin correctly. Facials are an imperative way to treat your skin with the utmost respect, and give it the best chance of remaining healthy. 

What are the benefits of facials? 

There are many roles facials can play in helping to maintain quality skin. Facials are a great way to rejuvenate faded skin that may have been caused by environmental damage or aging effects.

As individuals, we often experience prolonged stress, sun exposure, and dehydration which cause our skin to lose quality over time. Facials are a great way to provide a check-in for your skin and give it a much-needed boost.

In addition, facials can help to create a smooth appearance, such as removing redness, unevenness and helping to repair acne-prone skin. This can be achieved through deep cleansing of the skin and the addition of topical treatments that work to promote collagen production. 

Placing quality skin appearance aside, facials are also a great way to relax and unwind. They have powerful stress-reduction effects, as you’re prioritizing general skin health and overall wellness. Facials are also often performed in a calming environment, helping to provide you with that simultaneous “me-time”. 

What is a spa facial? 

A spa facial is a great way to allocate time to treating yourself and a way to provide your facial skin with a much-needed boost. Both men and women can benefit from spa facials, as they help to provide you with glowing skin quality. Facials usually follow a methodological process, starting with introductions with your treatment provider, overview of the session, general cleansing, followed by a variety of massage and masque treatments. Your individualized session will ultimately be up to you; however, the overarching goal of spa facials is to provide you with a deep sense of relaxation and leave you with cleansed skin. 

What is a medical facial? 

A medical facial goes beyond cleansing and relaxation. Medical treatments often require more specialized individuals to perform goal-oriented skin treatments. These treatments may include the exfoliation of dead skin cells, extraction of pores, anti-ageing tropicals, acne solutions and more. Light peels are also used to enhance skin quality and treat specific skin issues. These facials often are more time-intensive and require the use of potential topical treatments that interact with the skin. Medical facials are certainly not a one-size-fits-all approach as everyone presents with very individualized skincare concerns, thereby requiring a unique solution.
