Going for monthly facials is quite common in India. Most women opt for this beauty ritual which involves the usage of various creams and facial massage to soothe the skin and make it glowing and soft for a few days. Visit any salon and you will be inundated with several options such as fruit facial, gold facial, diamond facial, and more. The options are aplenty but do these superficial facials actually help your skin? Turns out, not so much. If you want to really renew your skin, you should opt for medi-facials which penetrate the skin s layers and have a better and long-lasting effect. Dermatologist Dr Sneh Thadani helps you select the best medi-facials for your skin.
Medi-facials, on the other hand, incorporate mild peeling agents, advanced equipments to hydrate and exfoliate the skin, and some specific techniques such as radio frequency current to firm up the skin. With the help of these products and machines, the treatment permeates deeper epidermal layers and targets the dermal layer of the skin as well. Collagen and elastin, for example, lie in the dermal layer, resulting in far better and longer lasting results. That explains the edge medi-facials have and their rising popularity.
Benefits of medi-facials
Safe and effective
Far better results than a basic facial Non-surgical and no downtime Can be customised as per the skin type Give instant results Add variety to your clinic practice Since it is essentially a facial therapy, the process definitely includes regular steps of cleansing, exfoliating, extraction and moisturising, but it is all done on an intense level. The level of penetration is higher than a regular facial. And the process and technique varies based on which type of medi-facial is being done. An anti-acne medi-facial will include a peeling agent, whereas a hydrating technique will incorporate the use of electroporation, for a quick glow and instant rejuvenation, some serum may be used, and an oxygen-infusing machine can also be used in the process for dull skin or even for sun-damaged skin. In anti-ageing medi-facials, some microcurrents or ultrasound waves are also used for toning, lifting and firming of the skin; the vampire medi-facial incorporates the process of drawing the client's blood, and purified platelets are re-injected back into the face to repair fine lines, uneven skin tones and to improve quality of the skin.
Good for whomMedi-facials are best suited for a variety of skin concerns. Based on the equipment or the product being used, the facial can be customised and used for a skin type which has acne and scars, open pores, tanned skin or can even be done for a mature skin and dehydrated skin.
PrecautionsIf there are open wounds on the skin, or if the skin is sunburnt, it is best not treated. Don't do a deep peel or a laser treatment soon before or after a medi-facial. Avoid excessive sun exposure after the treatment. Use a broad spectrum sunscreen religiously after a medi-facial.
