Ready for smoother, brighter, and healthier-looking skin? At FACET Dermatology, we offer medical-grade facials that are designed to deliver superior results using advanced technologies and cosmeceutical skincare formulas. Our skilled providers customize every facial treatment to meet our patients’ unique needs, addressing a range of concerns from fine lines and wrinkles to acne and hyperpigmentation.
Who is a good candidate for a medical-grade facial?
A medical-grade facial is suitable for all skin types and ages. Whether you're looking to prevent signs of aging or address existing concerns, a facial can help improve your skin's overall health and appearance.
What can medical-grade facials treat?
A medical-grade facial can treat a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull or uneven skin tone
- Acne and acne scars
- Hyperpigmentation and sun damage
- Dry or dehydrated skin
- Rough texture and uneven skin surface
Our providers will assess your skin and recommend a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.
How our Facial Treatments Work
At FACET Dermatology, we use medical-grade skincare products and advanced technologies to deliver results-driven facials. Our facial treatments may include:
- Gentle cleansing to remove dirt, oil, and makeup
- Exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and promote cellular turnover
- Extractions to remove impurities, clear pores, and reduce acne breakouts
- Medical-grade serums and masks to address specific skin concerns
- LED light therapy to stimulate collagen production and reduce inflammation
Remember, every FACET Dermatology facial treatment is entirely customizable, so we can tailor it to your skin's unique needs, whether you have acne prone skin, oily skin, dry skin, or aging skin, or to specific goals, including looking your best for special events.
How many facials are needed?
We recommend scheduling a facial treatment every 4-6 weeks for ideal maintenance, or at the changing of the seasons. During seasonal shifts, you may notice a difference in your complexion — for example, you may experience more oily skin, dry skin, or sensitive skin as the weather changes. Facials, such as a hydrating facial treatment or clarifying facial, can help restore the moisture balance in your skin, helping to fade redness and rejuvenate your complexion for a healthy glow.
Is a facial right for you?
Facial treatments are generally safe and effective for all skin types, including sensitive. However, if you have any medical conditions or allergies, please inform our team prior to your treatment. Our providers will thoroughly assess your skin to tailor your facial to your skin’s needs.
Benefits of a facial
Some of the benefits of a medical-grade facial include:
- Improved skin texture and tone
- Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Brighter, more radiant complexion
- Reduced hyperpigmentation and sun damage
- Reduced appearance of acne and acne scars
- Deeper hydration for smoother, softer skin
- Smaller pores and reduced appearance of blackheads
Recovery + Results
Immediately following a facial, your skin will look and feel noticeably smoother, and your skin tone will appear more even with less redness. Pores will be clearer and look smaller. Dry skin will feel softer and healthier, with a noticeable glow and faded fine lines and wrinkles, while oily skin will be more balanced. Your complexion will improve even further as treatments are regularly incorporated into your skincare routine.
There is no real downtime associated with a medical-grade facial — most patients can return to their daily activities immediately following treatment. You may experience some redness or mild irritation, but this should subside within a few hours.
Results from a facial treatment may vary, but many patients notice an improvement in their skin's tone, texture, and overall appearance immediately after treatment. With regular treatments, you can achieve long-lasting results and maintain healthy, glowing skin.
It is a known truth of cosmetic dermatology that the results of non-invasive treatments do not last as long as more aggressive procedures, especially if you only book one treatment. To get the best results from your facial treatment, you should book recurring treatments.
With regular facial treatments, you'll see a gradual transformation in the health of your skin, including the fading of unwanted lines, smoothing of wrinkles, shrinking of enlarged pores, improvement of acne, and a reduction in irritated red skin.
However, expect that the results of your facial will last about a month, depending on how well you care for your skin at home with at-home facial treatments using skin care formulas with active ingredients.
To make caring for your skin a regular habit, consider treating yourself to a DIY hydrating facial treatment every Sunday. It's a relaxing way to kick off the week and will help keep your pores clear, skin balanced, and complexion radiant. If you have more questions about how to do your own facials at home, talk to our team at Facet Dermatology. They'll be able to suggest techniques and recommend effective skin care products that will support the results of your treatments at our Toronto practice.
