About Facials at Dorner Plastic Surgery
A good home skin care routine is important to keep a clear complexion, but occasionally you may need a little more help with a medical-grade facial. Selected based on the needs and concerns of your skin, our skilled aesthetic team recommends regular facials for our Dublin and Columbus, OH patients to help keep their complexion healthy. After a thorough consultation to assess visible and hidden damage, the best medical-grade products and facial techniques will be selected to help rejuvenate your skin. To further rejuvenate and pamper your skin, customize your facial by adding another treatment, like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or a dermal filler. Schedule your appointment for a professional facial at Dorner Plastic Surgery to elevate the health and beauty of your skin to the next level.

"My daughter and I both had facials by Christine this week and it was absolutely wonderful. She did a great job. It was relaxing, the products didn't irritate our skin and we were both extremely pleased with the results! His office staff are always very nice and it makes it a pleasure to go to his office for services."- C.C. / Google / Nov 23, 2019
"Dr. Dorner and all of his staff are absolutely amazing. I had a mommy makeover (fully tummy tuck, lipo/abdominal contour, breast lift and augmentation). This was after 3 C-sections, a hysterectomy, hernia repair, gastric sleeve and +50-pound weight loss, so honestly I wasn't expecting any miracles. I'm SO happy with my results I can't believe I waited so many years to do it. I'm in my 40s and my stomach looks better than it ever did as a 20-year-old! They were extremely helpful before and after the procedure, always professional and kind and make you feel comfortable. I've also had facial light therapy done here and was happy with that as well."- J.S. / Google / Jul 01, 2021
Professional facials at Dorner Plastic Surgery are suitable for all ages and skin types since they are customized to each person's needs and concerns. Typically, facials are created to correct signs of aging (fine lines, wrinkles, and dry patches), improve sun-damaged skin (dark spots, rough texture, and uneven tone), deep clean (acne and clogged pores), brighten dull and sallow skin. Facials can be designed to help teens or adults with chronic conditions like acne outbreaks, sensitive skin, and rosacea. The effects of a facial can be enhanced with another nonsurgical procedure like microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or injectable wrinkle treatments.

After your consultation to determine your best treatment based on your skin type and concerns, you will relax in one of our treatment rooms as your facial begins. Every facial will be unique, but most will start with a deep cleansing to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. After that, steam is used to open clogged pores so blackheads and whiteheads can be extracted. This is usually followed by a type of exfoliation, either performed manually or with an added treatment (microdermabrasion or chemical peel). A mask or serum may then be massaged into the skin for deep nourishment. Finally, an SPF moisturizer will be applied to protect from sun damage after the treatment.

Following your facial, you may see some redness and irritation but this should subside naturally within a day.
