The Ultimate Guide to Facials in Indianapolis

Our face is such an important part of who we are and how we connect with others. When we’re unhappy with our face, it can make it harder to live the life we want, whether it’s from dealing with the pain or discomfort of acne or embarrassment because of a rough skin texture. Facial skin, particularly around the eyes,  is also one of the first places we start to see signs of aging.

Even if you’re not experiencing any of those specific issues, facials and facial treatments can help maintain the health of your skin and prevent premature aging. There’s a difference between a spa facial and a medical grade facial designed to improve the health of your skin.

Wanting to care for your face is a natural desire. At Phases Skin Care and Laser Center we’re committed to helping our patients look and feel their best with facials in Indianapolis, as well as aesthetic facial treatments. Your skin is unique and deserves a treatment plan that’s formulated to its specific needs. 

Benefits of facials in Indianapolis

  • Control and treat acne
  • Deep exfoliation
  • Improve skin texture
  • Boost your skin’s health
  • Customizable for your needs
  • Reduce signs of aging
  • Easily combined with other aesthetic treatments

Medical grade facials in Indianapolis

At Phases Skin Care and Laser Center we make it a point to offer medical grade facials at our office, the HydraFacial and the DiamondGlow Facial. Offering multiple options allows us to further customize treatment for our patients, we create personal facials based on your short and long-term goals for your skin.

We always start treatments with an in-depth consultation because the type of facial we recommend will be based on your unique needs! We make recommendations based on your skin type, your age, and your goals.


For skin that feels dry and dull, the HydraFacial system is a ticket to better hydration. Adding a HydraFacial into your treatment plan can revitalize your skin in multiple ways.

With ongoing HydraFacial treatments you’ll notice improved hydration, more even skin tone, reduced pore congestion, and decreased fine lines and wrinkles. It’s a completely customizable treatment that utilizes different booster serums to target specific concerns.

The HydraFacial is a patented 3-step hydradermabrasion process that delivers consistent results in a 45 minute treatment, with no necessary downtime afterwards! You can sit back and relax while your trained aesthetician smooths your skin’s troubles away.

Step 1: Gentle cleanse

The first part of a HydraFacial is a gentle cleanse and exfoliation to remove any debris and dead skin cells. The serum uses a combination of glycolic and salicylic acid to prep the skin for the next steps.

Step 2: Pain-free extraction

After cleansing, the second step is a deep extraction. Your aesthetician will use the HydraFacial wand to essentially vacuum away surface level build up and clear out your pores. The whole process is pain free!

Step 3: Nourish and hydrate

During the final step of your Hydrafacial, we infuse your skin with antioxidant and peptide serums, as well as any boosters that you’ve selected. 


You get to enjoy the results of your HydraFacial instantly and will leave our office with a noticeable glow! It’s a great way to prep your skin before a party or another big event.


For patients looking for deeper exfoliation, we will recommend the DiamondGlow because it provides manual exfoliation with diamond tip technology. While a DiamondGlow works similarly to a HydraFacial, it’s able to reach deeper layers of the skin. 

A DiamondGlow facial can provide more corrective results for issues like skin texture, crepiness, and wrinkles and is best for patients specifically looking to slow signs of aging.

Customizable and quick

With 6 different tips, your aesthetician is able to customize your treatment to suit your skin. The DiamondGlow exfoliates, extracts, and infuses serums simultaneously, so the treatment only takes about 30 minutes!

Deep exfoliation

The diamond tip provides deeper exfoliation as it clears away debris and buildup. The manual exfoliation also encourages your skin to produce more collagen and elastin, which means that your results will continue to improve over time.

Medical-grade serums

Using Skinmedica serums, your aesthetician can customize your facial to match your unique skin and tailor your treatment to provide truly optimal results.


DiamondGlow results are instant, though patients may experience some redness for a short time because of the manual exfoliation. Using a customized at-home skincare regime can help prolong your results for weeks!

Taking your skin care a step beyond facials in Indianapolis

Adding a regular medical-grade facial to your routine can keep your skin healthy. They also have the added benefit of combining really well with more intensive aesthetic treatments to provide more corrective skin treatments.

We often use facials to prep patients for our other facial treatments in Indianapolis. These aesthetic treatments pair really well with HydraFacial and DiamondGlow:

Microneedling RF

While facials can take care of the surface level issues, adding microneedling RF to your treatment plan lets us remodel your skin from the inside out. We like to say that microneedling RF is an investment in your skin’s long-term care. This is because the results of microneedling RF occur gradually over time.

The microneedling portion of the treatment boosts your skin’s collagen production, resulting in firmer skin. The radiofrequency (RF) energy gently heats your skin and enhances the effects of the needles.

HALO Laser Skin Resurfacing

There’s a reason HALO is the go-to laser resurfacing treatment for many of our patients. It’s the world’s first dual laser system that uses both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to maximize your treatment. This popular technology can easily erase the signs of aging and engage your skin’s natural healing process by stimulating collagen production and cell turnover.

After using the Halo laser, we can expect improvement in overall skin tone and texture after just one treatment. Most patients see optimal results after 3 or more treatments.


We sometimes recommend Ultherapy as an alternative to a facelift because of how effective it is as a skin tightening treatment. Of course, it can’t perfectly replicate surgical results, but it can help patients put off getting a face lift. It’s also a great way to maintain the results after a face lift or an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty).

Ulthera uses ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production in your skin, resulting in smoother, firmer skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.

Preparing for your facial in Indianapolis

Before scheduling your facial, it’s important to get to know your skin and its needs. An in-depth skincare consultation with one of our trained aestheticians can help you figure out which facial treatment is best for your skin and your goals.

During your skin consultation, your aesthetician  will go over your medical history, examine your skin, and provide personalized recommendations for treatment and products as part of your unique treatment plan.

In addition to our regular skin consultation, we offer Skinprint Skin Analysis which focuses on the biochemistry of your skin itself, using real time measurements to develop customized skincare products formulated for your skin.

How to sustain your facial results

A regular facial can help boost your skin’s appearance and health. Getting your regular medical facial without following at home skincare is a lot like going to the dentist regularly but not brushing your teeth at home. Gross, we know!

Getting the right products and following the right order for your skincare routine can help sustain your facial results and improve your skin’s appearance and health. Using medical-grade skincare products can give your skin even better results than typical over the counter skin care.

When you don’t have a regular skin care routine, your skin will show its age sooner rather than later. The skin is one of the first places that we start to see signs of aging. More than that, as your largest organ, it plays an important role in protecting your entire body and it deserves to have its health prioritized.
