Facials VS Medi-Facials

Gorgeous skin is the best revenge!!

Monthly facials is quite common in India. You have several options such as fruit facial, gold facial, diamond facial etc. The options are aplenty but do these superficial facials actually help your skin?

Basics: Our skin is made up of two main layers, the epidermis, and the dermis. The epidermis is the layer responsible for the prevention of free-radical damage, i.e. from pollution, smoke, harmful bacteria etc.

Myths:  Facials are needed for proper cleansing. Facials help in getting those blackheads extracted and removal of acne. I need a facial before my wedding/party/event to get glow on my face. Regular facials will make my skin look younger

Standard facial only provides pampering and is not treating the skin. They also generally include harsh exfoliation, which strips the skins barrier and is unnecessary, as our cells regularly turn over and fall away from the skin naturally, without the need of forced exfoliation. These steps in facial are very superficial and therefore they don’t really amend the skin and have effect only for few days.

What are Medi Facials? Medi-facials are personalized to each skin type, as all our skins are different and react in different ways. The results are effective and long-term. Instead of rough exfoliation or a chemical peel, Medi-facials use natural prescription strength ingredients to speed up cellular turnover, remove dead skin cells and repair the skin leaving it refreshed and healthy looking, without compromising and damaging its protective barrier.


Benefits and Process: With Medi-Facials, Doctors reach the Dermis to deal with skin issues, such as acne, scarring, pigment spots, sun damage, dehydration, rosacea, broken capillaries, etc. Medi-facials also improve the tone, texture, and collagen and elastin production in the skin, slowing ageing. They first understands your skin type and your individual issue to suggest a treatment. As they have the permission to use medical-grade cosmetic products like higher-strength peels. They incorporate technologies such as laser, intense pulsed light (IPL) and radio frequency (RF), which offer results that a beauty facial cannot.
