Miia Medspa in Rowley, MA, offers a wide selection of facials, including HydraFacials, ultrasonic facials, Environ facials, and dermaplaning. Learn more about some of our most popular facial options in the guide below.
What Are Facials?
Facials are cosmetic treatments that aim to improve the health and appearance of your facial skin. These treatments use a variety of techniques and approaches to resolve common complexion issues and create more vibrant, healthier skin.
We offer numerous types of facials for clients looking to improve their skin. Two of our most popular facials are HydraFacials and the dermaplaning facial.
HydraFacials are a specific type of facial that focuses primarily on restoring the skin’s moisture and giving it a more youthful, vibrant appearance. HydraFacials can also resolve age-related changes, improve skin tone and texture, and reduce sun damage.
Types of HydraFacials
Each type of HydraFacial focuses on a specific set of concerns. They use different technologies to provide added benefits to the skin. Learn more about each type of HydraFacial below.
A Platinum HydraFacial is the most comprehensive facial treatment. This facial is designed to treat a wide variety of skincare concerns, including clogged pores, dry skin, uneven tone and texture, and acne blemishes.
The Platinum HydraFacial includes detoxification through lymphatic massage, LED light therapy for signs of aging, and deep moisturization to rehydrate the skin.
Deluxe Spa HydraFacial
The Deluxe Spa HydraFacial deeply exfoliates the skin and extracts any impurities from the pores. A customized combination of serums will be used to hydrate the skin and provide it with antioxidants. This facial is concluded with LED light therapy to address signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
Deluxe Medical HydraFacial
A Deluxe Medical HydraFacial includes all the benefits of a Deluxe Spa HydraFacial, but with an added booster treatment. Boosters are customized treatments that are tailored to each patient’s unique needs, addressing their specific skincare concerns.
Diamond Micro HydraFacial
The Diamond Micro HydraFacial is an innovative facial treatment that combines all the aspects of a Deluxe Medical HydraFacial but adds diamond tip microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion can improve the tone and texture of your skin by resolving sun damage, fine lines, enlarged pores, and more.
The Signature HydraFacial is the standard HydraFacial treatment. It is used to cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, and hydrate the skin. Custom serums are added to provide antioxidants and hyaluronic acid for a range of complexion benefits.
The dermaplaning facial is designed for deep exfoliation. Built-up debris and dead skin can lead to a number of skincare issues, including clogged pores and dull tone. Dermaplaning combats this by exfoliating the top layer of the skin to remove dead skin cells and debris, leaving behind a smoother complexion.
The Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning facials can provide a variety of benefits for your complexion. These include the following and more:
- Deep exfoliation
- Brighter skin
- Smoother surface
- Reduced severity of acne
- Improved tone and texture
One of the lesser-known benefits of dermaplaning is how it impacts your skincare routine. Since dermaplaning deeply exfoliates and removes built-up debris from your skin, it can improve the way you absorb skincare products. Patients are amazed at how much more effective their creams and serums are after having dermaplaning performed.
How Is Dermaplaning Performed?
A dermaplaning facial is a simple, outpatient procedure that takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. During the treatment, you’ll be able to lie back comfortably and relax.
We begin by deeply cleansing the skin to remove any debris and create a clear canvas. The skin is then completely dried, as the dermaplaning process is less effective on wet skin.
Once your skin is dry, we begin the actual dermaplaning procedure. During the dermaplaning, we use our fingers to gently pull your facial skin taut. While holding the skin in this position, we use a surgical-grade scalpel to gently scrape the outermost layer of the skin. This is done in small and strategic movements to allow for precision.
The dermaplaning scalpel will work to remove dead skin cells, facial hair, and other impurities from your complexion. Once we have finished dermaplaning all of your facial skin, we apply a deeply nourishing serum to soothe and heal the skin.
When Will I See the Results of My Dermaplaning Facial?
Immediately after your dermaplaning facial, your skin should feel and look smoother. You may notice an improvement in the tone and texture, with fewer imperfections. Up to three weeks of dead skin cells can be removed by dermaplaning, which creates a much more even, vibrant complexion.
For continued results, we recommend continued dermaplaning. Most patients choose to have their dermaplaning facial repeated every four to six weeks to maintain smooth, glowing skin.
