What are Facials?
Medical-grade facials at Advanced Dermatology are geared toward more serious skin concerns that need a clinical approach to achieve the results desired. A spa facial is a relaxing experience where the main goal is to pamper the client. Medical facials include extractions to remove blackheads, whiteheads, and acne and will help relieve active acne and can aid in preventing future breakouts. Our therapeutic facials pair wonderfully with a solid at-home skin care regimen. All Advanced Dermatology teams in Katy, League City, Pearland, and Sugar Land, TX recommend regular facials for patients to keep their complexion healthy. After a thorough consultation to assess visible and hidden damage, the best medical-grade products and facial techniques will be selected just for your skin.
Our goal is to further rejuvenate and pamper your skin by customizing to meet your needs only. Your facial's effectiveness can always be bolstered by adding on another treatment, like microneedling with the SkinPen, microdermabrasion, or a cosmetic injectable. Schedule your appointment for a facial at Advanced Dermatology to elevate the health and beauty of your skin.
What is Dermaplaning?
An effective method of physical exfoliation, dermaplaning gently removes the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Dermaplaning can easily be added on to any of our facial treatments (if appropriate).

Who is an Ideal Candidate for a facial?
Professional facials at Advanced Dermatology are suitable for all ages and skin types since they are customized to each person's needs and concerns. Typically, facials are designed to repair signs of aging (fine lines, wrinkles, and dry patches), improve sun-damaged skin (dark spots, rough texture, and uneven tone), deep clean (acne and clogged pores), or brighten dull and sallow skin. Facials can benefit teens and adults with chronic conditions, like acne, sensitive skin, and rosacea.
How does a facial work?
You will receive a thorough cleansing of the face followed by sitting under steam for 10 – 15 minutes. The steam helps open up the pores and softens the skin, which will make the impurities easier to extract. Once extractions are finished, a mask will be applied to the skin for deep nourishment. Light, medical-grade chemical peels may also be used in place of the mask. Finally, an SPF moisturizer will be applied to protect from sun damage after the treatment. In total, your appointment should take close to one hour.
What can I Expect after a facial?
In order to maintain your results from your medical facial, it is important to be consistent with your in-office treatments and at-home regimen. For optimal results, you should schedule a medical facial every four weeks. Once you are happy and confident with the results, appointments can be scheduled less frequently or as needed. Medical-grade facials are usually an introduction to stronger in-office services — the chemical peel.
How much does a facial cost?
Prices will depend on the products used during your facial, and if you add on any other procedures. Your aesthetician will listen to your needs and examine your skin type before developing your personalized facial plan in your consultation. Once this is done, they can discuss your price. Advanced Dermatology often offers specials on facials and other skin treatments and discounted packages.
What type of facial should I get?
Your facial will be selected and customized to fit the needs of your complexion. Your aesthetician will ask about your current concerns and goals before assessing your complexion at the beginning of your visit. After this, your aesthetician will give you their suggestions for your facial. You can also discuss add-on treatments, like a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, which can improve the appearance and health of your skin.
Can I combine other treatments with a facial?
If you want to further customize your facial, you may want to add on a second treatment, such as microdermabrasion, a chemical peel, or microneedling. In your consult, your facialist can make recommendations on treatments that will enhance your facial and improve your skin condition.
How often should I get a facial?
For optimal results, you should get a facial once every 1 – 2 months to improve the health and appearance of your complexion. Facials, when received regularly, help to exfoliate dead skin cells and improve your skin — so it looks and feels great. In your initial consultation, your facialist will recommend how often you should make appointments for facials to reach your goals and then to keep your skin healthy. Over time, you might get different facial types and get additional add-on treatments to match your changing goals.
How can I maintain the results of my facial at home?
Following a skin care routine at home can help extend your results. After your treatment, we can recommend products that are right for your skin type and goals. It's also important to use protection when you're in the sun (hats and sunscreen) and minimize lengthy exposure to UV rays (both natural sunlight and tanning beds).
