Spa Facials vs. Medical Grade Skin Care: What’s the difference?


Facials are offered anywhere from salons and spas to plastic surgeons’ offices. So, what are the differences between facials and medical grade skin care? If you choose to have a facial done at a spa, expect more of a relaxing and pampering experience. Skin issues can be addressed, but the ingredients are geared towards comfort and soothing.  Often the products used are not as strong or medically-based as treatments provided at Boca Skin and Body Med.

With medical grade skin care, more attention is given to serious skin concerns which need a clinical approach to achieve optimized results which may include laser treatments, more aggressive peels, microneedling and more.  These treatments are selected based on a plan that will target your serious skin concerns.  When the skin is properly and frequently exfoliated through medical grade skin care, the cell turnover rate ensues, which means softer skin that is more even in tone, less prone to breakouts and shows fewer signs of aging.


Microneedling stimulates 100%, self-repairing skin renewal that takes place from the inside out.  The skin becomes firmer and regains elasticity as new collagen and elastin is formed naturally. Microneedling uses tiny needles to safely and precisely create controlled micro-injuries to the skin, triggering new collagen production.  Microneedling treatment is used to improve the skin’s tone and texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size, stimulate tissue regeneration, reduce pigmentation, and improve scars and stretch marks.


Extremely gentle acids act are applied and as exfoliants to rejuvenate your skin. These mild acids do the same amazing work as a harsh scrub, but they tend to be more complete. More powerful acids can be applied to address problems originating in the moderately deep skin layers. These are effective enough to remove unsightly features like scars and freckles. The action of chemical peels removes skin layers that are unresponsive to healing. Once these layers are gone, smooth new layers contribute to the appearance of a bright and even facial surface.

A PRP Facial combines microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma), also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, or the Vampire Facial. The PRP is obtained from drawing a small amount of your own blood, from which the plasma is separated to concentrate healing properties. Microneedling with PRP can be used in several different areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, décolleté, arms, abdomen, back, hands and legs.  Read more about PRP Facials here.
