At Bionuu in Littleton, we offer medical-grade esthetics to help our patients achieve their health and cosmetic goals. Medical-grade esthetic treatments go a step beyond spa esthetics by involving the expertise of a physician. This leads to greater intensity in treatment for more visible results.

What Are Medical-Grade Esthetics?

Medical-grade esthetics share many of the same ideas and practices as spa esthetics. Both esthetic practices offer treatments to help people achieve healthy, radiant skin. However, medical-grade esthetics have a few key differences:

  • Medical-grade esthetic treatments are performed in a clinical setting.
  • Physicians are consulted or directly involved in treatment.
  • Non-invasive esthetic procedures may be suggested for either cosmetic or medical purposes.
  • Medical-grade estheticians may work with chemical peels, laser therapy, microneedling and microdermabrasion at higher intensities than spa estheticians are allowed to use.

What Are the Benefits of Medical-Grade Esthetics?

Medical-grade esthetics can involve treatments with higher levels of potency than spa esthetics. For example, in the state of Colorado, estheticians are only able to use microneedling devices that perforate under 0.3 to 0.5 mm. Medical microneedling, performed by a physician or in collaboration with a physician, can go beyond this limit for an intensive treatment up to 2.5 mm.

Since the help of a physician is crucial to medical-grade esthetics, you can receive a more potent chemical peel to address deep skin concerns. Medical-grade chemical peels can treat deep scarring, discoloration, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Results from a medical-grade treatment are longer lasting and more evident than those of spa-grade esthetic treatments.

Laser treatments are an important aspect of medical-grade esthetics. Laser treatments can be used to initiate the skin’s healing process, help hyperpigmentation and large pores, broken capillaries and spur collagen production for tighter, healthier skin. With the help of a physician, medical-grade laser treatments can be used to help you achieve a flawless appearance over time.
