Have you ever done a facial in a parlour only to find that it has barely made a dent in your skin quality? Regular parlour facials use heavy chemicals and bleaching agents in their products which may cause damage or only give short-lived results. If you are looking for facial by dermatology science-backed options that rejuvenate the skin while improving it, medical facials or medi facials are worth trying.

What is Medi-facial?

Medi Facials are super facials that go beyond the basic steps of a parlour facial by using medical science-backed ingredients and technology to brighten, nourish and smoothen the skin through various techniques. Many medical facials today use active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and more to fuse into your skin and bring a change. They also pair this with various new technologies like LED light, hydradermabrasion, H2 therapy etc to give your skin the care it deserves.

Important notes to remember before getting a medi-facial

Before you choose a medi facial, make sure to remember that you must follow a few precautions for a safe and effective time.

  • Avoid using retinol treatments or products 3 days before your medical facial
  • Don’t go for any kind of salon activities for a week before your facial to avoid any reactions or inflammation
  • Those who have severe acne should avoid facials and opt for acne treatments instead
  • People with any kind of infection should wait till the infection is healed to do a medi facial
  • Pregnant women and pacemaker users are not suitable for a medical facial treatment

What to expect while consulting with a dermatologist

Medical facials are more intensive than parlour-done facials. Every step including cleansing, exfoliation and hydration is more in-depth and may cause an issue if they don’t suit your skin. Hence it is best to consult a dermatologist or an expert and give them a full history of your skin and health. This includes allergies too. All of this information will help experts determine which type of medi facial will suit you the best without causing any harm.

How often do you get a medi-facial?

You can get a medi facial done every 4-6 weeks for long-lasting and visible results. Since it takes 3-4 to make a difference in your skin and reduce signs of ageing, doing one regularly every 6 weeks can make a great impact on your skin.

Results to expect from medi-facial

You can expect softer, smoother and cleaner skin after a medical facial. You will also notice that your dullness and oil have vanished and your skin will begin to glow and look more even as new cells grow and collagen production is boosted.

Hence, medical facial treatments are perfect for all, especially those with lower skin quality. Beat tired, dehydrated and undernourished skin with the exceptional results of medi-facials.

Steps to follow after the facial

  • Avoid the sun in case of inflammation and sensitivity
  • Use an SPF to battle sun damage
  • Follow a gentle and effective skincare routine regularly to preserve the results of a medifacial
  • Maintain a healthy diet and increase your water intake to boost the overall health of your skin.

We hope you are now equipped with all the information you need to opt for a medical facial treatment. If you want to try your first super facial at home, you can check out makeO skin (formely skinnsi) variety of derma facials and hydra facials for a safe and invigorating experience.


What Are The Active Ingredients Used For makeO's Signature Facial?

At makeO skin (formely skinnsi) we use active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, and Vitamin C in our signature facials.

How Many Sessions Of Signature Facial Do Doctors Prescribe?

One session every 4-6 weeks is perfect for medical facials. Since it takes 3-4 weeks for collagen to quicken its production, doing this facial every month can be very helpful in beating the signs of ageing and improving the overall texture and health of your skin.

How is medi-facial different from other facials?

Parlour-done facials are quicker and generally use chemical-based products and bleaching elements which can cause harm to the skin. And, these facials only provide short-term effects. Meanwhile, medical facials are facials by dermatology science-backed techniques that use the latest active ingredients and dermatologist-backed technology to give your skin a youthful glow and the ultimate care.

What Are The Common Side Effects Of Signature Facial?

You may notice some inflammation or sensitivity and redness on your skin post a medi facial. However, this is a temporary side effect.

How long do medi facials usually last?

Medi Facials are typically 1-2 hours long and do not require any downtime, so you can go about your day and even wear makeup after a medical facial treatment.
