“Skincare is important, but Medical Facials is even more”
— Dr. Abby, Award-winning Aesthetic Doctor & Skin Specialist in KL.
When it goes down to investing your hard-earned money in taking care and treating your skin to look its best, it’s probably most often to find yourself quickly lost and overwhelmed. Amidst the sea of skincare products and treatment services that have flooded the market in recent years, it is almost impossible to make the best decisions without any help.
And I can say, social media is not helping either. With the rise of beauty influencers and branded content like paid reviews and brand collabs, it is hard for a regular consumer who only seeks to cure acne, reduce wrinkles, or treat acne to decide which is actually good for them.
Anti-aging, moisture, and collagen rejuvenation; are just some of the benefits that we’re seeing on marketing blurbs. But, while it does make sense to do maintenance care at your own home with skincare, many seem to forget that facials done by professionals remain the best, if not far easier alternative to treat and improve your skin health.
So, which is worth your coin? A good facials by done by aesthetic clinic or a skincare product?
Deep cleansing — Medical Facials win!
Over-the-counter cleansers can easily wash away surface-level dirt, such as excessive sebum, oil, dirt, and make-up. However, most drugstore cleansers can’t help much for a deeper cleanse. Facial treatments such as microdermabrasion and normal facial, offer far superior cleansing regimens. They extract blackheads, refine pores, and exfoliate deeper for truly cleaner skin.
Targeted treatment — Medical Facials win, again!
Instead of offering a short-term solution for acne, excess sebum, or uneven skin tone, facials are more intensive and thorough. You may be able to reduce acne through skincare, but they are not cured. Recurring factors can cause further breakouts. Sometimes, the same skincare can’t work as well as before.
Of course, for best results, you will be advised to use the right blend of skincare products post-treatment.
Skin sensitivity — Medical Facials win once more, wow!
If you have sensitive skin, blindly slathering your skin with skincare products without understanding the ingredients’ properties may lead to a lot more complications. Though some active ingredients are proven to give your desired results, they may be sensitizing to certain skin types. With facials, professional maintenance will give specialized attention.
Skin needs — Medical Facials win, obviously!
Let’s face it. When relying on YouTube and the Internet for advice, there is no guarantee that we know what we’re actually doing. Self-diagnosis can be a very dangerous game! If you use the wrong ingredients, it can lead to regrettable mistakes.
By consulting with a professional facialist, you will not only be gaining better insight into the condition of your skin but also be given the right solutions to help improve your appearance.
Results — Medical Facials win! Are we even surprised at this point?
Investing your money into a good facial routine with a trusted spa can do wonders for your skin. If you’re already spending a lot of money on skincare, you’ll be surprised at how effective a single facial routine can be. It almost gives instant results! The face seems brighter, pores less visible, skin less irritated, and definitely smoother than a baby’s b*tt!
But, it’s not time to give up skincare!
Though facial can give 10x better and quicker results, skipping skincare overall is a counterproductive move. As I like to say, skincare is to maintain while treatments are to cure. So, if you have solved your skin concerns like cure acne, reducing wrinkles, smoothing fine lines, or reducing pores, a good simple and sustainable skincare is the way to go!
