Medical Grade vs Spa Facial

Medical grade facials transcend the boundaries of traditional aesthetics. Led by highly trained medical aestheticians with specialized expertise, this transformative treatment delves deep into the dermal layers of your skin.

Going beyond surface concerns, such as sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, and texture irregularities, a medical-grade facial harnesses the power of clinically formulated solutions. The results are astounding as your skin undergoes remarkable changes that leave you feeling rejuvenated and renewed.

Examples: Dermaplaning, Microneedling, Chemical Peel, HydraFacial, Diamond Microdermabrasion, and Vampire Facial.

On the other hand, spa facials are artfully performed by aestheticians who combine time-honored techniques with modern practices. This experience encompasses gentle exfoliation, soothing serums, hydrating oils, and luxurious lotions to pamper and revitalize your skin.

By targeting the surface layers, including the epidermis and upper dermis, a spa facial unveils a glowing complexion. It’s the perfect retreat for those seeking relaxation and a moment of pure bliss.

5 Must-Know Medical Grade Facials at Skin Technique

  • Microneedling is an advanced technique that takes your skincare routine to the next level. It utilizes microneedles to create controlled micro-injuries, stimulating collagen production deep within the skin.

Microneedling effectively accelerates collagen production, visibly reducing signs of aging and improving various types of acne scars, including icepick, atrophic, and hypertrophic scarring.

The procedure begins with a skilled nurse or physician collecting a small sample of your blood. This sample is then processed to extract the PRP, separating it from other components of the blood. When combined with microneedling, the PRP can deeply penetrate the skin through microchannels, maximizing its rejuvenating effects in the deeper layers of the skin.

  • Hydrafacial is a customizable medical-grade treatment that seamlessly integrates multiple facials into a single transformative experience.


By merging the benefits of microdermabrasion with invigorating hydration and gentle exfoliation, it achieves remarkable outcomes, unveiling a complexion that is visibly clearer, radiant, and more breathtaking than ever before.

  • Chemical peels offer a quick and efficient method to revitalize and brighten your skin. This process helps to reveal new and healthy skin underneath, resulting in smoother, more even-toned skin overall. Additionally, a chemical peel can help to boost collagen production and reduce fine lines and scarring.

Harnessing the power of naturally occurring acids like alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), and more, a chemical peel works to resurface dead skin cells. When combined with other carefully selected skincare ingredients, it creates a dynamic treatment.

  • AquaGold is an innovative micro-channeling treatment that combines microneedling with the delivery of customized skincare solutions.

It utilizes a device called the AquaGold Fine Touch, which consists of multiple tiny, gold-plated needles. These needles create microchannels in the skin, allowing for the precise and controlled delivery of therapeutic substances directly into the dermis.
