Following a consistent at-home skin care routine with effective products is necessary to maintain a clear and healthy complexion, but every now and then, you may require the deep, transformative effects provided by a medical-grade facial. Personalized for the needs and concerns of your skin, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arun Rao recommends his Tucson, AZ patients to receive regular facials to keep their complexion bright and healthy. After a thorough consultation to determine visible and hidden skin damage, the appropriate medical-grade products and facial techniques will be combined for the rejuvenation of your skin. For the ultimate skin renewing treatment, you can enhance your facial by adding another service, like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or a dermal filler for overall improvements. Schedule your professional, individually tailored facial at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery to boost the health and beauty of your largest organ — the skin.

"I was referred to Dr Camela Pokhrel with Dupuytren's contracture, a hand condition that had drawn my wedding ring finger onto the palm of my hand. I experienced the gradually worsening symptoms for seven years, and my left hand finally became disfuncional. I did quite a bit of research on the disease, and was aware that surgery to straighten my finger would be quite complicated.Dr. Pokhrel not only gave me back my hand function, but the process was much less painful and involved than I had anticipated. Her staff is terrific, and Dr Pokhrel has an extremely caring attitude and manner. My hand has healed much more rapidly than my research had predicted.I highly recommend Dr Pokhrel and her practice for any hand surgery a patient might need.

Facials at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery are great for patients of all ages and skin types because they are personalized to address each person's unique concerns and goals. Typically, facials are performed to improve upon signs of aging (fine lines and dryness) and sun-damaged skin (dark spots, uneven tone and texture), as well as deep clean to unclog pores and brighten dull, sallow skin. Facials can be performed to help adults and teens with chronic conditions, like acne outbreaks, sensitive skin, and rosacea. The effects of a facial can be enhanced with another treatment, like microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or an injectable, for added enhancements.
After your consultation to determine your customized treatment plan, you will relax in one of our private procedure rooms as your facial begins. Most treatments will start with a deep cleansing to eliminate any dirt, oil, makeup, and lotions. After cleaning the skin, steam is used to open clogged pores so blackheads and whiteheads can be extracted easily. This is often followed by exfoliation, either performed manually or with an added treatment (microdermabrasion or chemical peel). A mask or serum will be massaged in for deep nourishment. To end your session, an SPF moisturizer will be applied to protect from sun damage.
What to Expect
Following your facial treatment, you may notice some redness and irritation, but this should subside naturally within 24 hours. Many patients will notice visible improvements in the appearance and feel of their skin immediately after their session. To extend the results of your professional facial, ask one of our experienced team members for help to create a home skin care program. You can also ask how often you should receive a facial treatment at Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery, as well as learn more about add-on treatments, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a facial cost?
The cost for your facial will depend on the type of facial, products used, and whether you add on any services. During your initial consultation, your facialist will listen to your needs and examine your skin type before designing your customized facial treatment plan. After this, we can determine your total expenses. Rao Plastic & Hand Surgery often offers specials on facials, as well as discounts when you buy a package of sessions.
What type of facial should I get?
Each facial is selected and customized to suit the issues of your skin. At the start of your appointment, your facialist will listen to your concerns and goals before examining your skin. After this, your aesthetician can give you their recommendations. You can also talk about additional treatments, like microdermabrasion or a chemical peel, which can improve the health and appearance of your complexion.
Can I combine other treatments with a facial?
To further enhance your facial, you can add a complementary treatment, like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or microneedling. During your initial consultation, Dr. Rao can make recommendations on other treatments that would enhance your facial and improve the condition of your skin.

Having a good at-home skin care routine can help you maintain the results of your facial.
