Is a Medi Facial Right for You?

Medi facials, as the name implies, are medicated facials. These facials provide vitamins, minerals, hydration, and antioxidants to your skin, unlike chemical facials and bleaches in parlors. A dermatologist or board-certified cosmetologist is the right person to handle a medi facial. 

The answer to the question “Is a medical facial right for me?” can be best understood when you get to know the various types of this treatment, the benefits, and associated side effects, if any.


The most sought-after top 7 medi facial types


  1. Hydrafacial: When you need clean, hydrated, and plump skin, this facial is suggested. It is one of the most popular types that use active serum components to hydrate the skin.  

  2. Chemical peels: In this procedure, a medicated combination of chemicals is used to peel off the outermost layer of the skin. This results in improved skin texture and smoothness and helps in wrinkle reduction.

  3. Fire and ice facials: This medi facial treatment involves a series of hot and cold treatments to cleanse, resurface, and moisturize the skin.

  4. Anti-aging facial: Enzyme- and vitamin C-rich serum is infused to improve collagen and reduce aging signs like fine lines, wrinkles, sagginess, etc. 

  5. Microdermabrasion: It is a minimally invasive facial that uses an abrasive layer to scrape away the dead cells and top (damaged) skin layer. 

  6. Red carpet facials: Individuals who want to overcome blackheads and skin complexions can take up this type of facial. What they get is a celebrity look and glow! 

  7. Photo facial: This is also a popular technique that uses laser light to eliminate black spots on the skin and activate underlying collagen substances.

What are the benefits of the treatment? Are there any side effects?


At large, the major benefit of this treatment is instantly glowing skin. It is due to the rejuvenation and cleansing effects of the medications that your skin problems are addressed and the marks fade away. Other benefits of medical facials include:

  • Exfoliates dead skin cells

  • Ensures oil balance 

  • Immediate youthful look

  • Treats acne, breakouts, or stretch marks

  • Relaxes and soothes the skin 

A little irritation or redness could be the maximum side effect that this treatment can cause. These are common and they do not harm your skin by any means. These signs may vanish in a couple of hours or 1–2 days.  


Who can undergo medical spa facial treatments?


In general, these facials are applicable for all ages and skin types. However, individuals with active sunburns, wounds, cuts, rashes, or allergies are not recommended until their skin conditions are normalized. The reason is to avoid any unwanted reaction between the already damaged skin and the medications. Perhaps the application of medications will only further worsen the skin problems.

Always, it is recommended to first get your skin tested. Second, get expert consultation. Third, choose the one that suits your skin needs. Book your appointment now with Chennai’s best medi facial treatment provider—TamiraLife!
