Medical Facials

CUSTOMIZABLE FACIAL TREATMENT TO REVEAL HEALTHIER, MORE RADIANT SKIN

Performed in a clinic setting, medical facials cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate skin using a combination of medical-grade products and tools. Suitable for a variety of skin types, these highly-customizable treatments improve the appearance of several skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, skin firmness, skin texture, pore congestion, and acne.

Facials are often equated with pampering and are typically the same for everyone, despite differences in one’s skin type or concern. They are mainly surface level cleaning, designed for relaxation. Medical facials on the other hand, are results driven, addressing specific skin types and concerns. Treatment plans are created to get you the results you want and bring your skin to its optimal health.

At Face Cosmedics Medical Spa our Medical Facials are customized to your skin type and concerns, so no two treatment plans are alike. Our Medical Aestheticians not only understand the skin but are also trained in advanced skin care.

Medical facials and procedures use medical grade products that produce visible, long-lasting results. So, whether you’re looking to slow the aging process, treat acne scarring, or eliminate brown and red spots, medical facials are an affordable and effective option to meet your skin care goals

Medical facials are highly customizable and can be tailored to your specific skin needs and concerns. Additional treatment add-ons such a dermaplaning may be incorporated to physically exfoliate the top layer of the skin and enhance the absorption of the chemical peel solution. Medical facials are also an effective complement to in-office treatments such as botox and dermal fillers.

It is recommended to incorporate an at-home skincare regimen after a medical facial in order to enhance and maintain the benefits

MEDICAL FACIAL SERVICES AVAILABLE

At Face Cosmedics Medical Spa we’re dedicated to enhancing your skins health using a synergistic approach with the goal of optimizing your skins health. The Combination of Medical Facials along with the appropriate Medical Grade Skin Care play a key role in preventing, treating, and maintaining your clear and healthy skin. We offer the following medical facial services:

CHEMICAL PEELS

CHEMICAL PEELS

We use medical grade skin care products in our chemical peels to exfoliate and stimulate collagen production, effectively improving the skin by reducing acne scarring, minimizing sun damage, evening tone, and smoothing texture. Chemical peels when done regularly, keep your skin glowing, radiant, and flawless.

MICRODERMABRASION

MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion polishes your skin, removing the dead skin cells and leaving your complexion soft, supple, and firm. Because microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation, it opens up the skin, making it ready for deep penetration with serums and skin care products and it effectively minimizes scars, discolouration, and fine lines.

MICRONEEDLING

MICRONEEDLING

This medical procedure involves using a fine needle pen device to puncture the skin, creating micro-channels that trigger the body to heal by producing new collagen and elastin in the dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply -- which helps to nourish your skin and give it that healthy glow who doesn’t love the sound of that! Plump, healthy and dewy skin!

Part of customizing your treatments includes blending services where needed. Depending on your goals and issues, you may benefit from a combination of medical facials and dermal filler, neuromodulators, or platelet rich plasma. But whatever your concerns or budget, we work with you to create the best treatment plan for your skin.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A MEDICAL FACIAL?

Since medical facials are highly customizable, they can effectively address a wide spectrum of skin concerns, making them appropriate for nearly everyone. Our skin specialists at Face Cosmedics Medical Spa in Fort McMurray will work with you to understand your specific skin needs and will recommend a customized medical facial treatment plan.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding many of the active ingredients cannot be utilized due to the unknown effects that the ingredients could potentially have on an unborn child. Therefore, we offer microdermabrasion or dermaplaning with pregnancy safe masks and serums. As well as skin care products you can use in the mean time.

WHAT WILL I EXPERIENCE DURING A MEDICAL FACIAL?

During your Medical Facial treatment at Face Cosmedics Medical Spa your skincare specialist will cleanse, exfoliate, and replenish your skin using a combination of modalities such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microneedling or dermaplaning.

Depending on the treatments performed, the facial may last 30 minutes to 1 hour. You may also experience some mild discomfort and downtime. This is contingent upon the concentration of ingredients used and what procedures were performed. After the procedure is completed, it is important that you follow the post-procedure protocol outlined by your skincare professional. This is especially important if your medical facial incorporates treatments that increase your skin’s sensitivity to UV light.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GET A MEDICAL FACIAL?

When and how often to get a medical facial depends on a variety of factors including skin concerns, desired outcome, and the type of treatment performed. If you are looking to improve chronic acne, you may benefit from a series of medical facials spaced 4-6 weeks apart. If you are seeking quick skin rejuvenation to improve radiance prior to a big event, you may benefit from a single medical facial. However, the results are generally more pronounced after a series of treatments.

Since these facial treatments leverage medical-grade products and tools, it is recommended that they are performed during periods when sun exposure will be limited. This does not necessarily eliminate the summer months, but it is important to be very diligent about sun protection.

COST OF A MEDICAL FACIAL

The Cost of a Medical Facial at Face Cosmedics Medical Spa in Fort McMurray, Alberta is all dependant on the treatment Plan.
