Facial Treatment Q & A

Shoreline Medical Spa

Why choose a medical spa over a salon for facial treatments?

Many people associate the word facial with a relaxing, cucumber-over-the-eyes experience at their favorite salon or spa. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with these types of facials, they cannot compare to the facial treatments available through a medical spa under the direction of trained medical professionals.

At Shoreline Medical Spa you have multiple facial treatments to choose from, including:

  • Chemical peels
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Dermaplaning
  • Hydradermabrasion
  • Pigment correction
  • Microneedling
  • Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma

Your experience may focus on one of these treatments or use a stacked approach of multiple treatments to yield the best possible results.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a treatment in which your aesthetician uses a sterile scalpel to precisely remove the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing the fresh layer of new skin that lies beneath. The process also removes fine facial hair throughout the treatment area and lessens the appearance of fine lines and acne scarring.

Dermaplaning can be a stand-alone treatment or can be combined with a chemical peel or laser therapy for an even more pronounced outcome.

How can chemical peels help my skin?

Shoreline Medical Spa offers trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels to smooth and soften your skin and improve tone and texture. These are medium-strength peels and are well suited for most skin types, including darker skin.

Getting a TCA peel only takes around 15-30 minutes, and there is no pain or discomfort. Within a week of your treatment, your skin will begin to flake and peel, revealing a more youthful complexion.

What is the difference between microdermabrasion and hydrodermabrasion?

Both facial treatments deeply exfoliate your skin to reveal a fresh layer of skin cells. They also stimulate your body to produce new collagen, which smooths fine lines and wrinkles and gives your face a more youthful appearance.

The difference between the two options lies in how the exfoliation occurs. With microdermabrasion, an instrument with an abrasive tip is used to manually remove the outer layer of your skin. Hydrodermabrasion uses a combination of water and oxygen in a high powered but controlled spray to exfoliate your skin.

Both can help with mild scarring, discoloration, blackheads, and uneven skin tone.
