How Do Medical Facials Work?

Medical facials are advanced skincare treatments performed under the supervision of dermatological experts. They involve a precise combination of medical-grade products and tools tailored to address specific skin issues. These facials begin with a thorough skin assessment, followed by steps like deep cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and the application of serums and moisturizers that are far more potent than those used in regular facials.

When Should You Consider Getting a Medical Facial?


Medical facials are a versatile treatment option suitable for a variety of skin types and concerns. Here are some signs a medical facial might be right for you:

  • You’re looking to boost your skin’s overall health and radiance.
  • Your skin feels dull, rough, or congested.
  • You have visible signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, or uneven skin tone.
  • You struggle with acne breakouts or blemishes.
  • You’re interested in a non-invasive way to improve your skin’s texture and tone.

Benefits of Medical Facials for Your Skin

Medical facials offer a multitude of benefits that go beyond a simple “feel-good” treatment. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Deep Cleansing and Exfoliation: Medical facials remove dead skin cells, dirt, and oil, leaving your skin feeling clean, refreshed, and receptive to further skincare products.
  • Improved Skin Texture and Tone: By removing surface irregularities, medical facials promote a smoother, more even-toned appearance.
  • Enhanced Collagen Production: Many medical facial techniques stimulate collagen, the protein responsible for youthful skin elasticity and firmness. This helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Reduced Acne Breakouts: Medical facials can help keep pores clear and control excess oil production, leading to fewer breakouts.
  • Brighter, More Radiant Skin: By removing dullness and promoting healthy cell turnover, medical facials leave your skin looking revitalized and glowing.

Tailored Medical Facial Treatments for Different Skin Types

Here at Ayana Dermatology & Aesthetics, we understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work for skincare. That’s why we offer a variety of medical facial options customized to address your unique skin type and concerns.

  • For Dry Skin: We might focus on hydrating serums and masks to replenish moisture and restore a healthy barrier function.
  • For Oily Skin: Deep cleansing and pore-refining treatments can help control excess oil and reduce shine.
  • For Sensitive Skin: Gentle exfoliation and soothing ingredients ensure a comfortable and effective treatment.
  • For Mature Skin: We can target concerns like wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and uneven skin tone with collagen-stimulating techniques and advanced serums.

During your consultation, our experts will discuss your specific needs and recommend the ideal medical facial for you.

Medical Facials for Acne and Anti-Aging

These facials are particularly effective for treating acne and signs of aging:

  • Acne Treatment: Includes deep pore cleansing, medicated ingredients, and light therapy.
  • Anti-Aging: Focuses on cell turnover, hydration, and collagen stimulation to reduce wrinkles and age spots.

How Often Should You Get a Medical Facial?

The frequency of medical facials should align with your skin type and goals:

  • For maintenance, once a month is ideal.
  • If addressing specific issues like acne or significant sun damage, your dermatologist might recommend more frequent sessions.

How to Care for Your Skin After a Medical Facial

Post-facial care is crucial:

  • Avoid direct sunlight and wear SPF.
  • Keep hydrated; drink plenty of water.
  • Follow a gentle skincare routine without harsh chemicals for a few days.
  • Avoid makeup for at least 24 hours.

My experience at Ayana has been nothing short of amazing! I came to Dr. Levi for hair loss, and she took the time to really listen to me and discussed all treatment options with me in detail. Not only do I feel cared for by everyone at the office, but I have also seen significant improvement in my hair growth using Dr. Levi's medical advice and treatment approach. Go to Ayana if you want results and the best care in South FL!

I am from Miami Beach and now live in Orlando. I am frequently in Fort Lauderdale because that is where my kids live. I have been to many dermatologists over the years. Dr. Levi is by far the best dermatologist I have ever seen. Her attention to detail is incredible. She is highly intelligent and is great at communicating what is going on. I can't put into words how great of a doctor she is. highly recommend her!
