If you ever find yourself dealing with dull, dry skin, frequent breakouts, enlarged pores, fine lines, dark spots, or other complexion problems, scheduling a facial is the best idea. These indulgent skin care treatments are soothing, refreshing, and utterly rejuvenating. More importantly, they offer a totally non-invasive way to revitalize the entire visage. Following are just a few of the many impressive benefits that regular facials provide.
An Excellent Form of Stress Management
Although there are many different types of facials that you can choose from when visiting our office, these treatments all have one thing in common: they’re an excellent way to pamper yourself, especially after a long day. During these procedures, your skin will be thoroughly exfoliated, cleansed, massaged, and hydrated. As such, not only will you look incredible when leaving your appointment, but you’ll also feel that way too. Best of all, you can pick your next facial based completely upon the type of experience that you want to have. For instance, there are relaxing, deeply hydrating facials, and facials for people who want to thoroughly remove build-ups of debris that have been blocking their pores. In either case, you’re virtually guaranteed to leave feeling refreshed, and excited to show off your brighter, smoother skin.
Step Up the Natural Healing Ability of Your Skin
During these treatments, dry and dead skin cells are completely sloughed away. Although you might be in the habit of exfoliating your skin at home, special tools can be used in-office to ensure that the process is thorough and that maximum results are achieved without causing any excessive skin damage. These efforts brighten the complexion by letting new and healthy skin cells shine through. Moreover, when skin exfoliation is performed at a sufficient depth, this process can also help minimize the appearance of dark spots, enlarged pores, fine lines, and mild to moderate acne scars along with other visible blemishes. As damaged skin cells are gently abraded away and new skin cells replace them, these issues will become progressively less conspicuous.
Another surprising benefit of having your skin exfoliated during facials is being able to improve the performance of your favorite beauty products. Like many other consumers, you might think it’s weird that even the most costly skin care solutions tend to work best during the first month or two of use. After just a few months of use, however, the benefits of each solution become far less noticeable overall. This is often due to a build-up of both dry skin and inner-pore debris. However, after this matter has been cleared away during your facial, toners, cleansers, moisturizers, and many other skin care products will be able to permeate your dermis more deeply. As such, products that are meant to leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed will again be able to produce these very results. Hydrating solutions will have the ability to deliver moisturizing agents to the areas that are most in need of them, and important, skin-supporting solutions can make their way down to foundation layers of your skin. You may be amazed by how well your old skin care products work after just a single appointment.
Promote Collagen Development and Cell Renewal
Facials provide a very diverse range of both immediate and long-term benefits. This is all the more true when you receive these treatments regularly. Among some of the long-term benefits that you might gain by adding facials to your self-care routine are increased collagen development and expedited cell renewal. Professional exfoliation, particularly when performed at a certain depth, incites the body to produce new, healthy skin cells at a much more rapid rate than normal. This is done to reinforce the skin, given its critical role in keeping invading organisms out. From a cosmetic perspective, faster cell regeneration expedites the healing of areas that are showing the signs of accumulated wear. Best of all, deeper treatments stimulate the development of skin supporting substances like collagen in much the same way.
New collagen development is key to keeping the skin both supple and pliable as you age. As your existing collagen stores break down and crack, fine lines and wrinkles can begin to develop at the mouth and eyes, along the sides of the chin, and at the brow, among other areas. Stimulating massage and exfoliation work together with deeply hydrating agents to help minimize the damages caused by things like prolonged sun exposure, smoking, dietary factors, and the inevitable passage of time. Sadly, as people grow older, collagenesis or natural collagen production also starts to slow down. Getting facials to help enhance the production of new collagen can keep your skin youthful-looking and smooth for years to come. Fine lines and wrinkles will be less visible, as other structural issues also abate.
Get Better Blood Flow
One very simple benefit of having a facial performed is experiencing a natural increase in blood flow. Improved circulation will help clear toxins from the treated area. It will also bring more oxygen and increased nutrients to the skin’s surface layers. This is what largely accounts for the dramatic brightening that often occurs after a facial. With increased circulation, the skin will naturally look more vibrant and healthier overall. Vibrancy and good health are two hallmarks of truly youthful complexions that are also indicative of good blood flow. As people age and their blood vessels constrict, getting adequate blood to the skin’s surface for ongoing revitalization becomes increasingly difficult for the body. Being able to reverse this unfortunate, age-related development will help you stave off some of the most common signs of facial aging and for a long time.
Eliminate Those Annoying Blemishes
People with acne-prone skin frequently find that their breakouts are most likely to occur just before any big and important event. If you suffer from this problem and have an important affair looming in your near future, you can schedule one of these treatments to quickly even up the texture and tone of your skin. After your face has been cleansed, exfoliated, and massaged, professional techniques will be used to extract debris. Blackheads and whiteheads can be effectively removed without causing any scarring or lasting redness. For people with large numbers of blackheads, regular facials and debris extraction can actually prevent the deep and pitted scars that are commonly associated with this condition.
Limit Your Reliance On Cosmetics
Makeup is an excellent tool for creating dramatic results, covering up blemishes, and achieving a much more polished look overall. If you find yourself becoming increasingly reliant upon these products to hide the true look of your skin, however, a facial could be just what you need. These procedures are designed to help you get the soft glow that many concealers, highlighters, blushers, and other makeup items are meant to create. When your skin is naturally beautiful and naturally glowing, you can look amazing right when you wake up and long before you put any cosmetics on.
Get Help with Other Problem Areas
Many people who struggle with facial acne often struggle with acne in other areas as well. For example, you might get breakouts on your decolletage or back. Even though these areas usually remain concealed by clothing, they can still make you feel self-conscious whenever it’s time to wear swim suits, tank tops, low cut dresses, or your own bare skin. During a facial, you can talk with the professional about your options in non-invasive treatment for these areas. When appropriate, massage, pore extraction, exfoliation, and other skin care services can be provided to minimize breakouts in these areas as well.
Take Advantage of Professional-Quality Skin Care Products
When receiving professional facials, you’ll have access to skin care products that aren’t usually available in-store. Your treatment can include a dazzling array of top-quality topical agents that are nutrient-dense, deeply hydrating, and capable of sloughing away maximum amounts of dead skin, among other things. Moreover, you can receive a treatment that’s been customized to suit your own unique range of wants and needs.
Open, Clean, and Shrink Your Pores
Beyond minimizing the appearance of existing blemishes and limiting the likelihood of having new blemishes form, facials are also capable of reducing the size of your pores. Once blockages have been extracted from the skin, these tiny openings will naturally shrink on their own. Topical astringents, increased blood flow, and other treatment-related benefits will support this process. Smaller pores can make the skin look younger. They are also less likely to get blocked with new surface debris.
Minimize the Appearance of Sun Spots
Beyond improving the texture of your skin, facials can also play a role in improving your overall skin tone. Nutrient-dense solutions such as those containing high doses of Vitamin C are frequently used during these processes to dramatically improve the overall tone of the skin. Topical agents like these help lighten dark spots caused by sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and melasma to create an attractive and far more balanced complexion overall. With regular treatments throughout the year, you can maintain smooth and evenly toned skin all of the time.
Learn More About Your Skin Type
After their very first professional facials, many people discover that they have been caring for their skin wrong all along. If you have never had your skin type identified by a professional, then you’re likely using the wrong face wash, moisturizers, and toners, among other things. During your consultation, we can tell you whether you have dry skin, oily skin, or combination skin. You can additionally learn which areas are most prone to breakouts and evidence of sun damage, as well as how to prevent these and other issues in the future. Moreover, you will be given needs-specific recommendations for skin care products so that you can get the right solutions for keeping your complexion looking its best at home.
