Medical-grade skin Care and Facials

Home » Medical-grade skin Care and Facials

Your skin is impacted every day by the environment and needs protection and care. This is why the team at Coastal Aesthetics in Wilmington, North Carolina, encourages patients to be mindful of caring for their skin. We are excited to offer medical grade facials and quality skincare products at our medical spa office.

What is a medical grade facial?

A medical grade facial is a skin treatment performed by a licensed medical esthetician in a clinical setting. These facials are more specialized and intensive than standard day spa facials, and they often incorporate medical-grade skincare and advanced protocols to address specific skin concerns. 

Here are some key features of a medical grade facial:

  • Personalized Treatment: Medical grade facials are tailored to the individual’s unique skin type and concerns. The treatments can be customized to address issues like acne, pigmentation, fine lines, anti-aging, hydration, or overall skin rejuvenation
  • Clinical-Grade Products: These facials use clinical-strength skincare products that contain higher concentrations of active ingredients, often available only through healthcare offices. This makes them more effective in addressing skin issues
  • Advanced Techniques: Medical grade facials may include techniques like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, microneedling, or the use of medical devices like lasers, Diamond Glow, or SkinPen
  • Targeted Skin Concerns: They are often used to treat specific skin conditions, such as acne management, skin congestion, or skin conditions like rosacea or milia

Due to their advanced nature, medical grade facials may have longer-lasting and more noticeable results than standard relaxing facials.

Why does medical-grade skincare matter?

When it comes to skincare, it’s all about formulation. Medical-grade skincare is much more efficacious because it often contains higher concentrations of active ingredients, such as retinoids, antioxidants, and growth factors, all of which are clinically proven to effectively address specific skin concerns. Additionally, these skin care products are typically manufactured to higher standards and are subject to rigorous testing for quality and purity. They are less likely to contain filler ingredients, fragrances, or other potentially irritating ingredients commonly found in over-the-counter products.

In summary, medical-grade skincare products offer a higher level of quality, effectiveness, and personalization compared to OTC options. With an esthetician’s guidance, skincare can significantly improve most skin concerns.
