A medical facial differs from a classic facial in that it uses medical grade products and tools. Chemical peels and other techniques are stronger when performed by a licensed medical aesthetician permitted to use medicated products. Our medical facials are tailored to fit the needs of each patients’ skin type and pigmentation to yield the best possible result. Redness, Rosacea, bumps, scars, and more can be treated with a medical facial at the Chicago Cosmetic Institute.
Cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, and moisturizing are all included parts of both classic and medical facials. The difference is in the power of the ingredients used. Usually, results are seen much more quickly when using medical grade products.
Medical facials can help prepare the skin for other treatments and is often paired with other procedures. Post-treatment results can see a boost from pairing with a medical facial as well. Luckily, at CCI our cosmetic doctors and medical aestheticians are located in the same place and directly coordinate with one another to offer the most comprehensive and effective treatment plans possible.

When should I consider IPL Photo Rejuvenation?
IPL Photo Rejuvenation should be considered when you want to improve the look of your skin without undergoing a surgical facial procedure. Photorejuvenation offers the benefits of little to no recovery time and few side effects. Photo rejuvenation and many other non-surgical procedures have become very popular for these reasons.
Chemical peels are one of the more commonly known products on the list and one of the most versatile. A chemical is applied to the skin of the face, neck, or hands which cause the skin to blister and be rubbed away with gentle brushing.
A chemical peel can help:
- Reduce facial lines under the eyes
- Lighten wrinkles caused by aging
- Improve the appearance of scars
- Treat certain types of acne
- Reduce age spots, freckles, and melasma
- Improve the overall look and feel of skin
The Jessner Peel uses a special solution to provide a medium depth facial peel. The Jessner solution is often used in conjunction with a TCA peel to treat acne scarring.
Professional TCA Peel
A TCA peel is another chemical facial peel utilizing the strength of trichloroacetic acid to dry the skin so that it peels over several days. Much like other peels, it is used to treat discoloration, melasma, and fine lines in the skin.
The Oxygen facial treatment attempts to replenish the oxygen in the skin naturally lost as our skin begins to age. Aging skin loses the ability to retain Oxygen. This can slow healing and repair processes that the skin performs naturally.
Oxygen facials aim to replenish this oxygen in the skin and help it return to a smooth, moisturized look and feel. Oxygen facials deliver a mixture of pure oxygen and anti-aging serums directly to the face and body.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a more intense treatment for the skin using a high power laser to manually correct skin pigmentation and smoothness. This technique removes skin one layer at a time with precision instruments. New skin cells that will take the place of old ones have a tighter, younger look. The body naturally replaces skin cells quickly.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments can be done for the entire face or smaller parts of the face in one sitting. Treatment can take anywhere between 35 minutes to 2 hours depending on how much is being done.
