Enhancing Your Regular Skincare Routine for a Healthier and Rejuvenated Skin


To have that radiant and youthful-looking skin, sometimes it all boils down to the basics. It cannot be emphasized enough how important it is to maintain and follow a good skincare routine at home, which includes cleansing, exfoliation and moisturization.

However, once in a while, your skin needs an extra dose of pampering that only a medical facial can provide. This is important for rejuvenating and in keeping your skin balanced.

Not only is it a good stress reliever, but medical facials also work in clearing out impurities that cause a multitude of skin problems. Problems can range from clogged and enlarged pores, breakouts, blackheads and pigmentation issues. It also helps in softening and smoothening the skin, promote an even skin tone, and increase proper cell turnover. Furthermore, it helps increase blood circulation and the flow of nutrients to the skin, resulting in that youthful glow.

If you want to increase your skin’s radiance and amplify the skincare routine you are currently doing, here are some basic facts you need to know about our medical facial service at Dr. Tyng Tan Aesthetics and Hair Clinic.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What is the difference between spa facial and medical facial? 

Basically, both treatments work on the premise of rejuvenating the skin and in boosting your regular skincare routine.

However, the main difference is that a medical facial uses medical-grade products and devices to deliver the desired results. The treatment is also based on a thorough skin analysis to formulate a personalised treatment to address specific needs and concerns.

2. What are the medical facial procedures used at the Dr Tyng Tan Aesthetics and Hair Clinic?

Our clinic uses microdermabrasion to restore the skin’s healthy condition. Depending on your skin needs, it helps in rejuvenating your skin efficiently.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and painless treatment that uses tiny and rough grains or crystals to buff the surface layer of the skin. It provides deep and professional-strength exfoliation in removing deep-seated dead skin cells to encourage and stimulate the growth of new skin cells.

3. What are the expected results of a medical facial?

Both treatments work by revitalizing your skin to make it look younger and fresher, and reveal a radiant complexion. Aside from this, you can also expect the following results:

a. Stimulates skin cell renewal
b. Improves dull and tired-looking skin
c. Reduces the appearance of acne scars
d. Clears the skin of pimples, blackheads and clogged pores
e. Evens out the skin tone by addressing skin pigmentation and other blemishes
f. Encourages proper moisture levels of the skin
g. Corrects skin tone and texture
h. Decreases the appearance of mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles

A medical facial is not advised if you have severe acne, dermatitis, rosacea, eczema, skin lesions, herpes breakouts and open sores. If you suffer from any of these skin conditions, your doctor will recommend the appropriate treatment.

4. How many session treatments are needed?

It is ideal to maintain regular medical facial treatments every 30 days. However, the number of treatments will depend after careful assessment of your specific skin condition. This will be discussed to you in detail during your consultation with your doctor.

5. Does a medical facial hurt?

This depends on the procedure recommended for your skin type and condition, however, microdermabrasion is virtually painless.

6. Is there downtime and how long is the recovery period?

Since microdermabrasion is non-invasive and does not require the application of chemicals on the skin, it has no downtime. This means that you can return to your regular daily activities immediately after the treatment.

7. What are the possible side effects?  

Medical facials have minimal side effects. In certain cases, your skin may feel slightly warm and appear red, but this will eventually subside after several hours.

However, in the hands of an untrained and unskilled professional, a medical facial can lead to some serious risks and complications. Some examples include:

i. Allergic skin reaction
ii. Scarring
iii. Further skin pigmentation
iv. Damage to the skin layers
v. Change in sensation
vi. Infection
vii. Bleeding

8. When will I see results?

Results will depend on the treatment administered on you. The results are not immediate and are slowly progressive and the significant improvements can be observed after several treatment sessions (Shem, 2001).

9. What are the skin care tips after a facial?

The skin-rejuvenating effects of a medical facial depend on how well you take care of your skin after the treatment. It is important that you regularly cleanse, tone and moisturise your skin.

10. Do you really need a medical facial?

A medical facial is not an integral treatment for your skin. However, getting one done regularly promotes skin renewal, and helps boost skin health that a simple at-home skincare routine cannot fully provide. It also helps boost the effects of your skin care products by setting a conducive environment for it to be absorbed by the skin and deliver its promised results.

If you want to give the care it deserves, you can trust that a medical facial at the Dr. Tyng Tan Aesthetics and Hair Clinic will help nourish and revitalize your skin, and give it that healthy glow. Dr. Tan puts emphasis on assessing your skin type and condition to provide you with the appropriate treatment to reveal a truly rejuvenated skin.


The cost per session is $98. During your consultation, Dr. Tan will detail the type of medical facial treatment that is suited for your skin. An assessment will also precede the decision as to the number of sessions needed to achieve the desired results.
