Medicated Facials - What Should You Know?

Facial skin is thinner than skin on other parts of the body. It is also prone to damage from harsh conditions. This is why dermatologists recommend separate skin creams for faces.

Different people have different sensitivities to creams and facials. Ingredients play the lead role in determining the sensitivity of facial skin. Before using a new facial, one needs to consult a dermatologist. The dermatologist can also conduct an allergy and sensitivity test. Such tests are carried out to determine the components or ingredients that a person is allergic to.

Moreover, if a person is suffering from acne and pimples, he/she needs regular dermatological care. This includes Medicated Facials.

Medicated Facials and Face Masks
Medicated Facials and facial masks are popular products, especially for those who have sensitive skin. Medicated Facials help in peeling off layers of dead cells without triggering any response from the skin. Most of these masks have the ability to deeply cleanse the dead cells and remove acne.

There are some face masks which are medicated to treat one or the other problem. While some of these masks can fight wrinkles and blackheads, others can fight pimples. They can improve the skin tone too. Masks are available in different types and with different ingredients. One can get a lemon, honey, cucumber, papaya, oatmeal, milk, wine face mask, and so on. A more diverse and medicated variety like clay masks, cucumber masks, apricot kernel masks, lavender or chamomile masks and many more are available in spas.

Anti-Ageing Facials
Ageing is a universal truth, and so are the symptoms. However, if a person thinks that the wrinkles in the face are incongruous with age, he/she can take to Medicated Facials. These are anti-ageing facials that fight skin wrinkles and other signs of ageing.

Since ageing degenerates the topmost layer of skin, harsh chemicals and UV radiation can hasten this process. Cosmetic physicians may use Medicated Facials as part of anti-ageing therapy. There are Medicated Facials that are made from natural ingredients like extracts of various plants, essences of various flowers, clay and much more in order to heal an agitated skin.

One can use medicated toners, serum etc. in facials to fight with one or the other skin problems. While the fragrance of some of these products is a great attraction for customers, they need to be dermatologically tested for their efficacy and benefits. These facials are designed to nourish the skin and replenish the loss of moisture and natural oils from it so that it can mollify the skin.

Conclusion
A person needs face cleansing to remove a dead skin layer, nourish it with natural ingredients and also replenish it with natural oils. Medicated facials are designed with a view to accomplish all this. However, some of the facials promise much more than what they deliver. So, it is important to get a guidance from dermatologists, as they will be able to point in the direction of the ones that are actually effective.
