Some may be unfamiliar with the term medical esthetics, and miss out on opportunities to help replenish and perfect their skin. Medical esthetics specializes in advanced skin treatments and procedures. Generally, these are known specifically as advanced facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and various laser treatments including skin rejuvenation and laser hair removal.
Medical estheticians specialize in skincare treatments that occur within the dermal and epidermal skin layers. These certified professionals land somewhere between dermatologists and estheticians. SPA La Donna is a full service medical esthetics spa, and can assist clients with anti-aging and beautifying treatments that can almost instantly remove years off of one’s appearance. Much more affordable than plastic surgery, these procedures also help replenish the skin and is a healthier approach to skin care.
Some common treatments by medical estheticians, such as La Donna McWhorter, include:
chemical peels: a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin, often facial skin, using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.
microdermabrasion: facial exfoliation procedure in which the top layer of skin is abraded away with ultrafine crystals of aluminum oxide or other ingredients. Microdermabrasion improves and smoothes the skin’s surface and can minimize imperfections like blemishes, fine lines, and signs of sun damage.
laser (skin resurfacing) treatments: a popular cosmetic procedure that can help rejuvenate the skin and reduce the effects of the sun, aging, and some facial skin disorders.
