Everything You Need To Know About Facials
Posted on August 28, 2020
Thinking about treating yourself to a facial? It’s about time! Whether you’re a first-timer, or just curious about the process, our expert estheticians are here to educate. Here is everything you need to know about facials.
Why do we need facials?
Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It defends against environmental radicals, and helps eliminate toxins from the body. For optimal, radiant skin health, it needs personal attention from a professional. Facials help:
1. Increase circulation and stimulate the skin
2. Slow down premature aging
3. Drastically improve conditions such as acne, redness and Rosacea
How often should I get a facial?
We recommend getting a professionally done facial every 28-45 days. This is because our skin goes through a cell turnover process every month. This means new cells are generated. Facials help to maintain healthy skin and improve past procedures.
What can I expect from my facial appointment?
Facials are meant to be a luxurious, pampered experience. Most facials follow a standard procedure. The standard procedure includes:
1. A thorough facial cleansing
4. Removal of any extractions that may be necessary
5. Face mask
6. A calming massage
7. Facial moisturizer
What kind of results will I see after having a facial?
You should almost immediately begin to notice a healthy glow following a facial. The glow typically lasts 48-72 hours, as the skin is deeply hydrated. By boosting your skin’s circulation, fresh blood brings new nutrients to the cells. This drains the excess fluid for a more defined facial structure and plumps the skin for a natural, healthy look.
The long-term benefit of a facial is its impact on cellular regeneration, a process that occurs over 28-45 days.
What’s the difference between a professional facial and an at-home facial?
A professional facial is given by a trained and licensed esthetician. While an at-home facial is good for maintaining results, it does not offer the benefit of a professional grade equipment. Methods like the magnifier UV lamp lights, proper and safe extractions, anti-bacterial probes, or galvanic current treatments provide maximum absorption of products to improve blood flow and the appearance of your skin.
