Medical Facials in the Heart of New York City
The option for a facial exists in most spas all over the city of New York. The issue with a spa facial is that they are not as effective or precise as a medical facial, or a facial conducted and supervised by medical professionals. Board-certified physicians who have a deeper knowledge of the skinconduct and supervise the procedures.
As a result a medical facial tends to be more effective and safer than ones conducted at spas. If you desire a facial treatment conducted by a licensed physician, we highly recommend considering the medical facial.
What Exactly is a Medical Facial?
A medical facial, unlike a facial conducted at a spa, is not considered a pampering or relaxing event. A medical facial is more geared at giving you the best and most beautiful cosmetic outcomes under the guidance of a medical professional. A medical facial is a more scientific and precise approach to improving the skin than a spa facial.
A medical facial is more involved, more effective and often uses stronger products and devices to give you more compelling and dramatic results. If you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles , age spots, sun spots, pigmentation, freckles, acne, signs of sun damage, etc., then a medical facial may be a better option for you than a spa facial. If you are looking for a way to relax and enjoy an hour of vacation from reality, a spa facial may be a better option. Ultimately, your skincare treatments are about your specific cosmetic desires, your schedule and your needs.
A medical facial can include one or a combination of treatments conducted and supervised by a licensed medical professional. When you first come to Rejuve NYC, Dr. Marina Gafanovich – a licensed skincare expert – will discuss with you your cosmetic desires and expectations. We will then review with you several treatment options that may be best for your type of skin and skin condition(s). At this time, we highly recommend asking any questions or voicing any concerns. While our goal is always the best and most compelling skin results, we want to make sure you are well-informed and completely comfortable with your treatment choices.
Dependent on the physician’s recommendation and your desires medical facial options include laser therapies that offer both skin-resurfacing and non-resurfacing procedures. A medical facial may involve a chemical peel or a dermabrasion procedure. Rejuve NYC skin care center in New York also offers ultrasonic therapies to boost and tighten the skin, as well as radiofrequency therapies and light-based skin treatments.
Many medical facials involve exfoliating the outer layer of skin, or epidermis, and also collagen-boosting effects in the dermis, or inner layer of skin. Whether it is heat, light, ultrasonic waves or radiofrequency, all of these treatments will stimulate the body’s natural healing response. This natural healing process includes stimulating collagen production. Collagen is a key structural protein that gives skin its shape and structure. More collagen also equals a younger-looking, clear and rejuvenated complexion.
Many of your treatment options for a New York medical facial involve minimal recovery time, are very affordable and do not interfere with your regular schedule. You can easily get a medical facial while on your lunch break, on a Saturday afternoon or even after work, and then fall right back in to your daily routine. Most of our patients can wear makeup immediately following a medical facial, so while they are more involved than a spa facial, they do not demand much healing time at all.
You may witness some initial improvements following a medical facial, and as the skin continues to heal and collagen continues to increase, you will witness even more dramatic changes in the following weeks. Dependent on your treatment choice, some procedures require a follow-up appointment and others do not. The most important thing to know is that we will work with you, your unique skin desires and your schedule to ensure that a treatment is right for you.
The risks and benefits of a medical facial will depend on the treatment(s) you choose. Your NY board-certified physician will discuss all risks and benefits with you prior to starting any treatment. If you feel a treatment is not right for you, we will never pressure you and work with you to find one that is more appropriate and comfortable.
Our team of experts will never do a treatment without first consulting with you and getting to know you. This includes a thorough medical history, a history of the medications you are on, previous skincare procedures and any allergies you may have. We will also do a thorough examination of your skin to fully understand your skin condition and make any needed diagnoses. Our commitment to always doing a medical history and physical examination also makes us stand out from the spa facial. Unfortunately, the employees at spas who perform facials often do not have a complete understanding of the skin or the knowledge to diagnose skin conditions. We at Rejuve NYC do.
No matter what treatment(s) you opt to have as part of your medical facial, we promise that you will have healthier, clearer and younger-looking skin. Most of our patients are highly satisfied with the results of their medical facials and are especially happy with the minimal downtime involved.
