Medical Facials - Patients ask, Dr. Ringpfeil answers
Please feel free to use the blog below to share information about Medical Facials or to ask Dr. Franziska Ringpfeil a question that might be of interest to others.
Acne facial treatments can create a remarkable improvement in the skin. Extractions can improve the skin's appearance. The most common mistake in facial care is imprecise, incomplete and unprofessional excision of comedones. Medical extraction of comedones is a precise procedure by a trained professional aesthetician. It involves use of a surgical grade extractor to ensure maximum benefit with minimum scarring or injury to surrounding tissue. Care is taken to customize preparation of the skin pre-extraction and appropriately treat the skin post-extraction. Acne facials can be done at 4 to 6 week intervals while undergoing treatment for acne vulgaris.

We ask that the night before the facial, any retinoid must be stopped and may be resumed the night afterwards. The morning of the facial, there is no necessity to apply any medicinal product other than your daily sunscreen.
The night of the facial, we ask you to treat your skin gently. Makeup can be applied if necessary but should be gently cleansed that evening. Resume your daily skin care regimen the day after the treatment.
None, but mild redness from extractions may occur up to 24 hours after the procedure
