A prescription system facial is designed to provide customized treatment according to the client’s specific skin needs. Medicis Medical Spa offers a range of prescription facials that will help revive, hydrate, and soothe skin, or correct common skin concerns.
How Does a Prescription System Facial Work?
A prescription system gets to the core of skin problems by using pharmaceutical-grade active ingredients that have been tested and proven effective for addressing various skin concerns. Patients experiencing the following skin conditions should consider scheduling a prescription system facial:
- Fine lines
- Dry or oily skin
- Skin discoloration
- Dull skin
- Rough texture
- Large pores
A Few Types of Facials
During a prescription system, the team of skincare professionals at Medicis Medical Spa may perform a combination of the following facials.
Personalized prescription facial. Patients with combination skin may benefit from this facial, which helps to balance the skin’s moisture and oil levels.
Oxy brightener facial. This type of facial is commonly done to address acne and support rejuvenation by combining deep exfoliation with oxygenating products. This type of facial is ideal for skin prone to a build-up of dead cells and congestion in the pores.
Acne facial. The acne facial lightly exfoliates surface congestion by deeply cleansing the pores and hydrating the upper layers of skin. Patients with combination, oily, and acne-prone skin may benefit from this facial.
Collagen stem cell facial. This treatment rejuvenates the skin by combining a light exfoliation with firming peptides and radiance-boosting antioxidants. After the facial, patients’ skin will feel smoother, firmer, and hydrated.
Retinol brightening facial. Patients experiencing signs of aging will enjoy the results of this facial, which smooths the surface of skin, hydrates the deeper layers, and stimulates new healthy collagen. This facial is a great option for patients with normal or dry skin, or those concerned with pigmentation, lines, and wrinkles.
Soothing facial. The soothing facial is a calming treatment that reduces redness in sensitive skin. The products used in this facial remove dead skin cells and nourish the skin. Patients experiencing eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne-prone skin will enjoy a visible reduction in surface redness and flushing.
What to Expect During a Prescription System
At the beginning of a prescription facial, a Medicis Medical Spa skincare professional will carefully evaluate the patient’s skin and ask about skin concerns and goals to help identify the right treatment.
Next, the esthetician will cleanse the patient’s skin to remove any traces of make-up. They will then begin a thorough exfoliation using powerful enzymes to remove dead skin cells, leaving the patient’s skin feeling soft and smooth.
A gentle massage action will help activate the active ingredients and encourage the skin to absorb them. The skincare professional will then apply a mask to help firm and tone the skin, and a broad spectrum SPF to protect the skin from UV exposure.
For Best Results
To enjoy visible and long-lasting results, patients should receive prescription facials regularly for an extended period of time. They should also follow up with at-home treatment, such as cleansing, moisturizing, and sunscreen use.
The main benefit of a prescription facial isn’t a miraculous one-time result, but a customized, long-term approach to skin care.
