Clinical Facials

Clinical Facials in Austin

A clinical facial includes a medical exfoliation and extractions to help clear pores of dirt and debris as well as remove dead surface cells. Your Vitalogy Medical Spa Aesthetician will recommend the methods and products suitable for your skin to help meet your aesthetic goals. 

Benefits of a clinical facial include softening of your outer layers and promotion of cellular turnover, as well as skin nourishment and rejuvenation.

What to Expect with a Facial

Classic clinical facials typically involve the same series of steps. First, the face undergoes cleaning, steaming, and exfoliating scrub. Then a mask is applied, with varying properties depending on your skin’s needs. The whole procedure should last between 45 minutes and one hour. Typically no downtime is needed afterward, but the skin may be a bit sensitive. 

Types of Facials 

Classic Facial

Classic facials are effective at cleaning the face and removing dead skin cells to exfoliate healthy skin. This process can target blackheads and whiteheads, and leave skin looking noticeably more bright and fresh. 

Decongesting Facials

Decongesting follows the same process as a classic facial, but it specifically focuses more on unclogging pores. Dirt, debris, and dead cells can block pores causing blemishes and lesions such as blackheads. 

Microdermabrasion Facials

Microdermabrasion is like sanding the skin for smoothness and uniformity. A handheld device “sandblasts” away dead cells and improves bumps, lesions, and acne scars.
