Facials Q & A

What is a facial?

A facial combines premium products with the artful skills of highly trained medical aestheticians to brighten dull skin, erase signs of aging, and clear blemishes. You leave a facial feeling radiant and refreshed.

Following your facial, take advantage of the advanced products offered at Jarvis Family Medical Practice to support healthy skin between appointments.

What types of services does a facial include?

Jarvis Family Medical Practice tailors your facial to your specific skin type, condition, and aesthetic needs. Most facial services include:

  • Active exfoliation
  • Extractions
  • Masks to address specific conditions
  • Cleansing
  • Hydration and toning treatments
  • Facial massage

Your provider also delicately treats the skin around your eyes and applies the highest quality skin care products to boost radiance and smoothness.

What is a Vampire Facial®?

A Vampire Facial uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to boost the appearance of your skin. PRP is a derivative of your blood that promotes healing and healthy skin development.

Your provider draws a sample of blood in a conventional procedure. Then, they place the blood in a special centrifuge and spin it down to concentrate the platelets. 

Platelets are a component of your blood that are particularly important to healing and clotting. Platelets also contain numerous growth factors to boost cell regeneration, circulation, and collagen production. Collagen is a major protein that promotes skin strength and elasticity.

Once the PRP is ready, it’s applied to your face via micro-injections. Your skin absorbs the PRP, and you get results that include:

  • Enhanced vibrancy
  • Tighter skin
  • Radiant skin

A Vampire Facial accelerates your skin’s natural healing to erase dullness and the signs of aging.

What is a HydraFacial MD®?

HydraFacial MD is a medical-grade dermabrasion process that cleanses, exfoliates, and infuses your skin with intensive serums, customized for your specific needs. Your provider performs the dermabrasion using vortex technology that cleanses pores with water and vacuums out impurities. 

The noninvasive facial leaves your skin radiant and glowing. Other benefits include firmer skin, smoother texture, and smaller pores.
