Medical Facial (Microdermabrasion)

Enhancing Your Regular Skincare Routine for a Healthier and More Rejuvenated Skin


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

However, it may not be cutting it. Once in a while, your skin needs proper treatment that only a medical facial can provide in rejuvenating and in keeping your skin balanced.

Not only is it a luxurious and effective stress reliever, a medical facial works in clearing out the skin of impurities that cause a multitude of skin problems, from clogged and enlarged pores, pimples and breakouts, to blackheads and pigmentation issues. It helps in softening and smoothening the skin, promote even skin tone and increase proper cell turnover. Also, it helps increase circulation and flow of nutrients to skin, encouraging a 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 condition of the skin in boosting your regular skin care routine of cleansing, toning, exfoliation and moisturization.

However, the main difference is that a medical facial uses medical-grade products and equipment in delivering the results. Also, a professional medical facial treatment is based on expert skin analysis in formulating a personalized treatment that addresses your specific problems and needs.

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

For our medical facial treatment, we employ the capability of microdermabrasion treatment in restoring your skin’s healthy condition. Depending on your skin needs, either or both of these procedures help in efficiently rejuvenating your skin.

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 proliferation of new skin cells.

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

Both treatments work at revitalizing your skin to make it look younger and fresher, and reveal your greatest complexion.

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

However, a medical facial is not advised if you have severe acne, dermatitis, rosacea, eczema, skin lesions, herpes breakouts and open sores. For 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. A microdermabrasion is virtually painless.

6. Is there a 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 very minimal side effects. In certain cases, your skin may feel slightly warm and appear red, which will eventually subside after several hours.

However, in the hands of an untrained and unskilled professional, a medical facial can lead to some more 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 exfoliate your skin. It is also crucial to hydrate your skin using a moisturizer daily, as well as provide your skin with ample sun protection using a broad-spectrum sunscreen.

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 better skin renewal, and helps you maintain a healthy skin condition that a simple at-home skincare routine cannot fully provide. It also helps boost the effects of your skincare products to be properly absorbed by your skin and truly deliver their promised results.

If you want to give your skin that healthy condition and 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 most appropriate treatment to reveal a truly rejuvenated skin.


The cost per session is $98. During your confidential consultation with Dr. Tan, she will discuss with you in detail the medical facial treatment that is suited for your skin. This also determines the number of sessions needed to acheive the desired results.
