At Laser By Sia, we are dedicated to ensuring everyone is informed about the different kinds of facial treatments available, so you can make an educated decision.
Many of the providers of facial treatments out there only want to sell their product and, therefore, many give you unrealistic expectations or don’t give you an accurate picture about drawbacks or recovery times.
So lets find out a little more:
Most facials nowadays are little more than face massages. Yes, it’s great to feel pampered and have a little downtime, but if you are looking for an actual result from a facial (i.e. to improve wrinkles, dryness, congestion, acne, etc), then to make a difference your facial needs to be medical grade. A medical grade facial, like our Mediderm Visage and Medifacials, means the moisture and nutrients from the skin care actually penetrate past the epidermis and into the dermis, where these problems actually originate.
Chemical peels/dermabrasion/microdermabrasion. These treatments are used to polish the surface of the skin. But latest research suggests that they may actually be accelerating the aging process by damaging the skin’s epidermal barrier. Find out more about this here. Instead, try a peel infusion.
Phototherapy or light therapy is a fantastic treatment and is even used in hospitals to speed healing and kill infection. Light therapy is painless, requires no recovery time and is great for acne, pigmentation, circulation, capillaries and skin rejuvenation.
Skin needling/skin rejuvenation/thermage/fractional laser. The idea behind these skin rejuvenation treatments is to create a mild wound in the skin. The skin then releases collagen and elastin in the process of healing itself, which is what makes the skin appear younger. Thermage and fractional laser are incredible painful and require extensive recovery time, but are effective. Just as effective are new technologies like skin needling and our skin tightening technology, which are more cost effective and require less recovery time.
So before considering a facial treatment, why not contact Laser By Sia and find out what’s right for your budget and your skin?
