What is skin health?
Odds are you’ve heard of the term skin care, but there’s way more to healthy skin than what’s on the surface. Just like overall wellness, skin health isn’t determined by just one or two factors – it’s the combination of things you do every day, from what you put on your skin to what you put in your body.
- 90% of skin damage is caused by sun exposure
- 81% of people have experienced a skin problem
- The body produces 1% less collagen each year of life
Why is skin health so important?
Your skin is one of the largest organs in your body – and definitely the most exposed. There are tons of factors that can lead to damaged skin, which can eventually take a toll on your emotional health. Rather than covering up those imperfections, we believe that focusing on the underlying causes is the best way to get skin that truly glows. And that holistic approach to skin health can lead to a happier, healthier you.
Treatment Step by Step
Every Medical Facial journey begins with an in-depth consultation with our skincare experts. During this session, we discuss your skin concerns, skincare goals, lifestyle, and any pre-existing conditions. We also perform a comprehensive skin analysis using advanced diagnostic tools to understand your skin’s current state.
Personalised Treatment Plan
Post consultation, our aestheticians create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your skin’s specific needs. We select the most suitable products from premium medical skincare brands such as ZO Skin Health by Dr Zein Obagi, SkinCeuticals, mesoestetic and iS Clinical to address your unique skin concerns effectively.
Preparing Your Skin
We start the facial with a thorough cleansing to remove any makeup, dirt, and excess oils. This is followed by a gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and enable better absorption of the following treatments.
Customised Facial Treatment
The heart of our Medical Facial lies in the custom treatments that follow the skin preparation. This may include a combination of targeted serums, creams, masks, and medical-grade treatments, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, specifically chosen for your skin type and concerns.
Soothing and Protecting Your Skin
After your skin has fully absorbed the custom treatments, we soothe it with a hydrating serum or mask. The facial concludes with an application of a high-quality moisturizer and sun protection to lock in the treatment’s benefits and shield your skin against environmental damage.
Once your Medical Facial is complete, our skincare experts will provide you with post-treatment care instructions to maintain the health and glow of your skin. We’ll also recommend suitable at-home skincare products from the brands we trust, aligning with your skin type and concerns.
Experience the bespoke approach to skincare with Medical Facials at Skin Cosmetics London. With our commitment to superior care, advanced treatments, and personalized service, we promise a skincare journey that is as unique and special as you are.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Medical Facial?
Medical facials are comprehensive skincare treatments that are performed in a clinical setting under the supervision of skincare professionals. These facials are customised based on individual skin needs and use medical-grade products and tools that are often more potent than those used in traditional spa facials.
Medical facials typically involve several steps including deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, application of targeted treatments such as chemical peels or serums, and moisturising. They are designed to address specific skin concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, aging signs, rosacea, and more, and can offer more noticeable and long-lasting results compared to traditional facials.
Brands like ZO Skin Health by Dr Zein Obagi, SkinCeuticals, iS Clinical, and Mesoestetic, among others, offer medical skincare products that are formulated with pharmaceutical-grade ingredients, and are often used in medical facials to deliver high-quality, targeted skincare.
What skin concerns can Medical Facials help to address?
Medical facials are designed to address a wide variety of skin concerns. They can provide significant improvements for the following issues:
Aging Signs: Fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity can be mitigated with the help of potent, age-defying ingredients used in medical facials.
Acne & Acne Scars: Medical facials can help reduce acne breakouts and lighten scars by deep cleansing, exfoliation, and application of targeted treatments that regulate sebum production and promote skin healing.
Hyperpigmentation & Uneven Skin Tone: Issues such as sun spots, age spots, and melasma can be improved with the use of medical-grade brightening agents and peels.
Rosacea & Sensitivity: These facials can help soothe inflammation and reduce redness associated with rosacea and sensitive skin conditions.
Dry or Dehydrated Skin: By infusing the skin with hydrating serums and locking in moisture, medical facials can address dryness and dehydration, leading to a healthier, plumper skin texture.
Oily Skin & Enlarged Pores: Through deep cleansing and balancing treatments, these facials can help control excess oil production and refine pore appearance.
Dull Skin: By removing the top layer of dead skin cells and stimulating cellular turnover, medical facials can revive dull skin, giving it a fresh, radiant glow.
It’s important to remember that the effectiveness of medical facials can be influenced by several factors, including your skin type, the specific skin concern, and the frequency of the treatments. Always consult with a skincare professional to understand which treatments are best suited to your needs.
Why choose medical facials over other facials?
Choosing a medical facial over a traditional spa facial can offer a multitude of benefits, mainly due to their targeted, scientific approach and the use of high-quality, medical-grade products. Here’s why you might prefer a medical facial:
Customized Treatments: Medical facials are tailored to address your specific skin concerns and conditions, making them more effective in delivering desired results.
Advanced Products & Techniques: Medical facials use scientifically-backed, medical-grade products that are often more potent than those used in regular facials. Also, the advanced techniques used in medical facials can target and treat skin issues at a deeper level.
Professional Supervision: Performed under the care of skincare professionals or dermatologists, medical facials ensure that your skin receives safe and appropriate treatments.
Long-Lasting Results: Thanks to the potent products and targeted treatments, the results of medical facials can often be more noticeable and longer-lasting compared to regular facials.
Complementary to Other Treatments: Medical facials can work hand-in-hand with other dermatological treatments and procedures, enhancing their effectiveness and promoting faster recovery.
Preventative Care: Regular medical facials not only address current skin concerns but can also work as a preventative measure, maintaining overall skin health and delaying signs of aging.
Remember, while medical facials offer numerous benefits, it’s essential to have a consultation with a skincare professional to determine the best treatment plan for your specific skin needs.
What results can i expect to see?
The results of a medical facial can vary based on the specific treatment used and your individual skin concerns and goals. However, here are some general outcomes you can expect after undergoing a medical facial:
Improved Skin Tone and Texture: Medical facials are designed to exfoliate, hydrate, and rejuvenate the skin, leading to an overall improvement in your skin’s tone and texture.
Reduction in Skin Concerns: Whether it’s acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, or rosacea, medical facials can significantly reduce the appearance of these concerns, giving your skin a healthier appearance.
Increased Hydration: Medical facials often incorporate hydrating ingredients that can address dryness and dehydration, leaving your skin feeling soft, supple, and revitalized.
Enhanced Radiance: By removing dead skin cells and stimulating skin regeneration, medical facials can enhance your skin’s natural glow, giving it a refreshed and radiant appearance.
Improved Absorption of Skincare Products: By deeply cleansing and exfoliating the skin, medical facials improve its ability to absorb the active ingredients of your at-home skincare products, thus enhancing their effectiveness.
Long-Term Skin Health: Regular medical facials can maintain overall skin health, prevent future skin issues, and delay signs of aging, leading to long-term benefits.
Remember, although you might notice some changes immediately after the treatment, significant improvements usually occur over a series of treatments, and maintaining these results often requires a dedicated at-home skincare regimen and regular follow-up appointments. Your skincare professional can guide you on the best plan to maximize your results.
How long will the results last?
The duration of the results from a medical facial can vary depending on several factors, including the specific treatment used, the condition of your skin, and your at-home skincare regimen.
As a general rule, the immediate glow and softness from a medical facial can last for several days to a week. However, the long-term benefits, such as improvements in skin conditions like acne, hyperpigmentation, and signs of aging, can be more persistent, especially with regular treatments.
For instance, the results of treatments like chemical peels, used to treat specific conditions like hyperpigmentation or acne scars, can last several months. On the other hand, the effects of hydrating or exfoliating treatments might need to be maintained with more frequent sessions.
To maintain the results of your medical facial, it’s essential to follow a consistent at-home skincare regimen. This should include the use of high-quality, targeted skincare products, as recommended by your skincare professional, and protecting your skin from sun damage, which can counteract the results of your treatment.
Remember, regular appointments (usually every 4-6 weeks, depending on your skin type and concerns) will help maintain the health and appearance of your skin, and allow for adjustments to your treatment plan as necessary. Your skincare professional will provide the best advice for maintaining your results.
