A medical grade facial entails using products containing active ingredients to help revitalize dull, dehydrated skin. By active ingredients, we mean products that are tested through intensive research for their effectiveness, and are usually only dispensed through a physician’s office. It could entail combining the exfoliating peels with the facial including specific acids designed especially for your skin, including the glycolic acid, the salicylic acid, or the lactic acid peel. Depending on your own skin condition, Southeast Med Spa can customize a facial for you.
Radio Frequency Medical Facial
Radio frequency facials are considered among the most effective non-surgical procedures available today. Via this treatment, radio waves penetrate the outer skin layers and deliver heat energy to the muscles and tissues beneath. This heat stimulates collagen production, and that, in turn, triggers tissue contraction. The overall result is tighter, brighter skin and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles. The radio frequency facial has been approved by the FDA. The treatment requires no downtime. It is recommended that you do in a series of 2 or more, monthly. This is a one hour service.

This is a treatment for light or pale brows and lashes. Suddenly your eyes will appear more vibrant and your features will have more contrast. For best result maintain every four weeks.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning also known as Epidermal leveling, is a gentle, non-invasive form of manual exfoliation of the skin that resurfaces sun-damaged, dull, dehydrated skin. Using a surgical blade, a medical esthetician gently exfoliates the outermost layers of the epidermis to remove dead skin cells, impurities and debris. This encourages the skin to regenerate new skin cells, leaving the complexion smooth, soft and vibrant.
Regular treatments of dermaplaning have been known to:
- Diminish fine lines
- Smooth acne scarring
- Improve skin texture and tone
- Help to unblock blackheads
- Temporarily remove facial hair (hair does not grow back thicker)
- Generate new healthy cell growth
- Enhance penetration of skin care products
Will Dermaplaning Hurt?
There is no pain associated with dermaplaning, most people find it relaxing. It is a non-invasive treatment and only the dead skin cells on the surface will be removed. Since products will penetrate more easily, we recommend using caution when applying aggressive skin care serums at home for a few days to avoid any irritation.
Will I Have To Take Time Off Work For Healing?
There is no downtime after dermplaning, and you can return to work the same day. We highly recommend a dermaplaning facial before a big event such as a wedding or a reunion due to the smoothing and rejuvenating appearance it produces.
Can I Have A Chemical Peel At The Same Time?
The combination of dermaplaning with a chemical peel is an excellent skincare treatment and one that we recommend to many of our clients. Since dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells that act as a strong barrier against products, the alpha and beta hydroxyl acids in the peel are able to better penetrate into the skin to encourage new cell growth, reduce discoloration, soften fine lines, and minimize the appearance of pores. Since this is a more intensive treatment than the dermaplaning facial there can be 1-2 days of slight skin flaking around the nose and mouth after the treatment.
Won’t The Hairs On The Face Grow Back Thicker?
No. The hair on the face is called Vellous hairs and it is physiologically impossible to grow back thicker. There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies, Vellous and Terminal hair. Vellous hair is the fine, translucent hair that you can find on your cheeks, jaw and neck – often referred to as “peach fuzz”. Terminal hair is thicker, colored hair that grows under the arms, pubic area, legs, eye brows, and mustache and beard for men. Terminal hair we remove with laser hair removal. When Vellous hair is cut the structure of the hair does not become damaged, therefore it is impossible to alter.
Face and body waxing with gentle hard wax. The hard wax is a special product that removes hair as short as 1/16th of an inch and works perfectly on any part of the face or body. No strips are used in this hair removal process and it is ideal for even the most sensitive of skin. Our European hard wax has natural ingredients that are especially gentle & effective.
By adhering to the hair, not the skin, hard wax gently removes hair from most sensitive areas. Waxes can be re-applied on just waxed areas immediately without discomfort or irritator. Stripless waxing leaves skin smooth and residue free. This, combined with our no double dip policy, ensures an ultra-clean treatment.
We like to educate our clients about the importance of skin care before and after treatments to enhance the long term effects of waxing.
