Medical facials are a great way for your Skincare Specialist to get to know your skin before deciding on a more intensive course of treatments. We also recommend this as maintenance treatments between other more advanced treatments to keep the skin clean, fresh, hydrated and to assist in delaying the signs of ageing.

We recommend starting with Medical Facials from the age of puberty. This keeps the skin clean and prevents common problems associated with teenage skins. As we get older the types of facial treatments required change to focus more on anti-ageing and feeding the skin with the correct active ingredients.
Will I Break Out After My Facial?
Due to the stimulation that occurs in a Medical Facial it is possible that the skin may break out. It is therefore recommended to avoid Medical Facials just before a special occasion and rather allow for 2 weeks before the occasion so that the skin can heal.
