Facial treatments offer a wide array of benefits, ranging from enhancing skin texture to addressing specific skin concerns. Whether it’s fighting signs of aging or tackling acne scars, the right facial treatment can make a significant difference. From rejuvenating peels to advanced therapies like Dermafrac, the choices are varied. Each treatment offers unique benefits, targeting acne scars, enhancing skin texture, or boosting collagen synthesis. But how do you know which treatment is right for your skin? Here’s what you should know: 

Skin Consultations

Each person’s skin is unique, and various factors like skin type, concerns, lifestyle, and even medical history can influence how their skin will react to different treatments. Therefore, a professional skin consultation is crucial in customizing skincare and treatment plans.

During a skin consultation, a skincare professional or dermatologist assesses your skin’s condition in detail. This assessment includes examining skin type (oily, dry, combination, sensitive), identifying specific issues (acne, pigmentation, aging signs), and understanding your skincare goals. They may also inquire about your current skincare routine, lifestyle habits, diet, and any medications you’re taking, as these can all impact your skin’s health.

The importance of a skin consultation lies in its personalized approach. Not all skincare treatments are suitable for every skin type or concern. 


Dermafrac is an advanced skin therapy combining micro-needling with serum infusion, offering targeted treatment for various skin concerns. This non-invasive treatment uses a specialized device equipped with micro-needles to create micro-channels in the skin, allowing for efficient serum absorption. The process also stimulates the skin’s healing response, improving collagen production and renewing skin cells.

The treatment includes the use of specific serums designed for different skin conditions:

  • Hydrate: Incorporates hyaluronic acid for intense skin hydration and smoothing of fine lines.
  • Rejuvenate A blend of active ingredients to stimulate collagen production, aiding skin smoothness and reducing signs of aging.
  • Clarify: Combines salicylic and lactic acids to clear pores and reduce acne.
  • Lighten: Contains Kojic acid for skin pigmentation issues.
  • Growth Factor: A recent addition focusing on cellular repair and rejuvenation.

Dermafrac is effective for various skin issues, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation marks, acne scarring, and overall skin rejuvenation. The treatment is generally well-tolerated, with minimal downtime and immediate resumption of daily activities. A typical treatment plan involves sessions every four weeks, with the number of treatments varying based on individual needs.

Perfect Derma Peel

The Perfect Derma Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel combining several potent ingredients, such as TCA, Kojic Acid, Retinoic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C, and Glutathione. It’s designed to address various skin concerns, including acne, photo-aging, scarring, and pigmentation issues like melasma, age spots, and freckles.

This peel stands out because it includes Glutathione, an antioxidant that brightens and lightens the skin, delays aging, and helps prevent wrinkles. It’s suitable for all skin types and ethnicities, offering benefits like reduced signs of aging and clearer, brighter skin with less discoloration after about three monthly treatments.

Patients can expect some sensitivity and redness post-treatment, and peeling usually begins within one to three days. Do not pick at the peeling skin or apply makeup immediately after the facial treatment.

Vi Peel

The VI Peel procedure is a targeted approach to skin rejuvenation, using a unique blend of active ingredients. The process begins with cleansing the skin to remove all dirt and oils, creating a clean base for the treatment. The VI Peel solution is then applied to the skin in two distinct applications. The first layer initiates the numbing process and begins exfoliating dead skin cells. This initial layer is crucial as it prepares the skin for deeper treatment.

The second layer of the VI Peel solution provides a more profound impact. This layer creates micro-injuries in the skin, which are key to the peel’s effectiveness. These microscopic injuries stimulate the skin’s healing process, improving cell turnover and increasing collagen production and other vital proteins. This process is essential for achieving a firmer, smoother, and more youthful skin appearance.

The VI Peel solution contains several active ingredients, each serving a specific purpose. Trichloroacetic acid and phenol are included for their ability to remove dead skin and create those microscopic injuries that jumpstart collagen production. Salicylic acid, often used for acne-prone skin, exfoliates the skin’s surface and helps clear pores. Retinoic acids from vitamin A promote cell turnover and reduce inflammation and oil production. Vitamin C, an antioxidant, works against the damaging effects of the sun and pollutants while boosting collagen production for smoother, evenly toned skin.

Glycolic Acid Peels

Glycolic acid peels, derived from sugar cane, are chemical peels that use glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin. They effectively treat various skin issues like acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. The peel works by loosening the bonds between dead skin cells, promoting their shedding and revealing brighter, more youthful skin.

The concentration of glycolic acid in these peels typically ranges between 30% to 70%. During the procedure, the acid is applied using a brush, cotton ball, or sponge and left on the skin for a specific duration, depending on the peel’s depth.

Patients might experience tingling or burning sensations during the treatment. Post-treatment effects include skin tightness, redness, dryness, flakiness, and peeling. It’s crucial not to forcibly remove the peeling skin, as it can lead to scarring. Instead, letting the skin naturally shed is advised.

Before undergoing a glycolic acid peel, patients should avoid using exfoliants, retinols, and retinoids to minimize irritation. After the peel, hydrating the skin is essential. Using moisturizers with hydrating properties and applying a broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen with at least SPF 30 is recommended to protect sensitive skin from sun damage.
