Facials cleanse and exfoliate your skin. They help remove dead skin cells, dirt, and oils. Facials also improve circulation in your face, which can reduce puffiness and redness. Finally, facials relax you and make you feel pampered.
A facial is a skin treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin to promote a clear complexion and healthy glow. During a facial, a licensed aesthetician will perform a series of steps to cleanse and moisturize the face to help delay signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. Some common types of facials include deep cleansing facials, enzyme peels, and microdermabrasion. Each person’s skin and needs are different. Your aesthetician will customize each treatment for your unique skin type and lifestyle.
Common Types of Facial
Deep-cleansing facials are great for people with oily or combination skin. They help clear clogged pores and reduce the appearance of blemishes and blackheads. They are also a great way to get a deep cleanse prior to a big event such as a prom or wedding. They leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed.
An enzyme peel is a special type of facial that uses natural enzymes to break down dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. As a result, they reveal younger, healthier-looking skin. These unique treatments reduce fine lines and wrinkles while reducing hyperpigmentation and improving the texture of the skin. They are great for people with all skin types who are looking to reduce the appearance of aging signs. They’re also a great option for those whose skin is too sensitive for microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure in which tiny crystals exfoliate the surface of the skin to remove dead and dull layers. This process reveals fresh, new skin cells that lie underneath. It’s a way to refresh your appearance without any downtime. It is particularly great for sensitive skin.
Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated to remove dead skin cells and debris, promoting a brighter complexion and allowing other products to be absorbed more effectively. Typically, extractions will be performed to extract any blackheads or whiteheads that may be present. For a professional-grade facial, a licensed dentist or dermatologist will usually perform extractions. During your treatment, the aesthetician may also massage your face, neck, and shoulders to relieve stress and help you feel relaxed. You may also receive a mask to further promote radiant skin and a healthy glow. The mask will be applied and left on your skin for anywhere from five to 15 minutes to allow the ingredients to fully penetrate your skin and create a hydrating barrier over the surface of your skin. After your facial is complete, you may also be instructed to apply specific products at home to help maintain the results of your professional treatment. These may include specialized cleansers, exfoliants, moisturizers, serums, and more. Some patients may have at-home care recommendations based on their skin type and their aesthetic goals.
A facial is a cosmetic treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin to promote a clear complexion and healthy glow. The skin is prepped for extractions and deep pore cleansing as needed. After your facial is complete, your skin will feel refreshed and renewed! Many patients choose to have their esthetician massage the muscles of the face during a facial as well. This helps to improve blood circulation, relieve tension, and increase overall well-being.
