Are you a facial first timer?

If you’ve never had a facial before and are wondering what all the fuss is about look no further, I’ll give you the facial 411:

Why should I get a facial?

  • Professional skin analysis performed during a facial can help you identify and create a skin care management plan for any skin issues you may have.
  • Facials help manage and maintain your skin through seasonal changes.
  • Facials have tailored and targeted treatments for persistent skin issues such as acne, roseacea, hyperpigmentation, and premature aging.

How often should I book a facial?

Your recommended facial routine really depends on your individual skin goals and needs. I suggest seeing your esthetician for a facial at LEAST seasonally and ideally once every 4-6 weeks. If your unsure of where to start a good esthetician will do a complementary skin consultation to steer you in the right direction.

What should I expect during a facial?

A facial should be a relaxing experience that leaves your skin looking smoother, brighter and clearer. This is acheived by the use of professional grade products and equipment like sonophoresis, microcurrent, and ultrasonic spatulas and steamers. Facials should never leave you in pain, although some exfoliants will cause a mild stinging or heat sensation. One midly unpleasant aspect to facials is extractions. The goal of extractions is to dislodge and remove any blackheads, milia, or congested pores. This process can be uncomfortable if performed incorrectly. A good esthetician will make sure the skin is properly prepared to make your experience as comfortable as possible.

Will there be recovery time? 

Depending on the type of products used you may leave slightly pink skin after your service. I always suggest people book any facial service at least five days prior to any functions or events. Also in rare cases, some post facial breakouts can occur. This is normal as facials are very stimulating and often draw imputrities to the surface of the skin.

Make the most of your skin! If a facial is like a workout for your skin then quality home care is like a healthy diet. You wouldn’t slave at the gym only to follow it up by eating at a fast food restaurant. To maintain the results achieved by your facial be sure to follow up with recommended home care. Your esthetician will suggest product for you to use at home to keep your skin looking its best.
