    Clinical Facials at Boston Medical Aesthetics

    At Boston Medical Aesthetics, our experienced practitioners are ready to assess your specific needs and provide exceptional care with a relaxing and rejuvenating medical grade facial. Our clinical facials are designed to target your skin's exact concerns, including age-related spots, blemishes, uneven skin tone, dry or oily skin, and acne.

    What are Clinical Facials?

    Your at-home skincare routine may not be effective enough to correct concerns when your skin exhibits signs of aging and damage from the sun. Clinical facials, expertly performed by our team of skilled professionals, treat your skin with high-quality products formulated to improve the condition of your complexion. These specialized treatments can be combined with other skin therapies enhance the health and radiance of your facial tissue.


    Dermaplaning is an effective cosmetic treatment that removes the top layers of dead skin to reveal healthier, smoother skin. Dermaplaning can also improve scarring from acne and uneven skin spots, along with any unwanted facial hair. Its versatile applications can be used on almost any skin type to rejuvenate and help reverse the signs of skin damage.

    LED Light Therapy

    LED light therapy uses state-of-the-art wavelength technology to treat skin with different frequencies that are absorbed in the skin and help undo the signs of aging, wrinkles, and other skin concerns. This non-invasive method stimulates your own body's natural cellular metabolism to improve your skin's appearance.

    Deep Extraction Facial

    Extraction, clearing out and unclogging the face's pores, can be part of a clinical facial. Patients who require a little more "work" on their skin are ideal candidates for a deep extraction facial. First, the practitioner uses steam to begin opening up the pores. Then, they apply a desincrustation gel (PCA Detox Pore Gel) to facilitate the extractions. It is an effective treatment for those with congested skin who want to open up their pores and experience rejuvenated facial skin.


    Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skincare treatment that can revitalize dull, dry skin. The process uses a wand with a diamond-encrusted tip, passing over the skin multiple times, exfoliating and resurfacing the skin with each pass. The results are instant, with skin looking and feeling resurfaced, refreshed, and rejuvenated.

    Lymphatic Drainage & Microcurrent

    The lymphatic system is an intricate structure of nodes, ducts, and channels that move fluid throughout your body to eliminate toxins and support the immune system. When stress and less-than-healthy lifestyle choices create a buildup of lymph fluid, your skin may appear puffy and unhealthy. Two treatments often used to address this are Lymphatic Drainage and Microcurrent.

    Lymphatic drainage, also known as lymphatic massage, is a specialized massage technique that can be used to detoxify the lymphatic system. It helps promote drainage of the lymph fluid in your body and has a relaxing effect.

    Microcurrent uses a very low level of current to stimulate your facial tissue and muscles. The result is the skin feels and looks firmer, tighter, and more lifted. It also helps stimulate the production of collagen in the treated area to build muscle and volume.

    These two treatments are often used in conjunction and can be done in an afternoon, with little to no downtime. They make for great prep for an evening event.

    Consultation and Preparation

    Our experienced staff is ready to listen and address your individual skin concerns, and some helpful reminders to get ready for your clinical facial include:

    • Wear comfortable clothing that's easy to change out of.
    • You may wear makeup, as your esthetician will cleanse your skin as part of the treatment.
    • Avoid using at-home treatments and exfoliators for one week prior to your appointment.
    • Avoid getting too much sun before your treatment as it can affect the success of the skin therapy.

    Discuss your skin routine, products you use at home, concerns, and any medications you take with the esthetician so they can use their expertise to make recommendations to help you achieve your skin goals.


    When you arrive for your facial appointment, we ensure a tranquil and clean environment. Using the appropriate procedures based on your consultation, our medically trained professional will perform a deep cleaning of your skin. We will use the exact, professional medical-grade products that are right for you to cleanse and exfoliate the skin, removing oils, dirt, and makeup. Once the skin has been treated, a refreshing and nourishing moisturizer is applied.

    Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

    After your clinical facial, you may experience mild redness and irritation that typically subsides after a day. Most patients will immediately notice a more even and radiant skin tone, free of blemishes and other imperfections. Our knowledgeable staff will advise on at-home skin regimens to maximize the results of your facial treatment. We recommend scheduling regular appointments to maintain your refreshed skin.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Clinical facials are designed to be a relaxing experience to recharge your skin and enhance its natural beauty and radiance. Most patients find the procedure refreshing for the skin.

    Clinical facials are generally very safe. Side effects from a facial can vary depending on the procedure used. Lighter procedures have little to no downtime or risks, while more vigorous medical treatments may leave the skin red and sore for as long as a couple days after. Be sure to discuss any concerns with our professionals so you know exactly what to expect.

    Depending on the extent of treatments, after a facial the skin will maintain its additional radiance for up to about 4 to 6 weeks. Your skin's life cycle is usually about 3-4 weeks, and it's recommended to schedule your clinical facials approximately once a month to maintain the best long-term results.

    It would be best if you waited until the following day to resume your makeup routine, and cleaning your brushes and applicators is essential to avoid breakouts after your facial treatment.
