Treating yourself to a facial is much more than a relaxing day at your medi spa that you only do once in a while. The reality is regular facials offer many benefits that improve skin tone, skin appearance, and overall skin texture.
Frequent facials also help with improving blood circulation and increasing facial muscle tone. This leads to optimized cellular health and enhanced collagen, and elastin production.
All these factors are convincing enough to make us all book our next facial today.
What is a Medical Facial?
A medical facial is a treatment used to exfoliate, hydrate, cleanse and eventually fix the skin. A medical facial primarily focusses on different skin issues like acne scars, wrinkles, large pores, stretch marks, skin allergies and many more skin conditions.
Medical facials are versatile and suitable for several skin types that can be customized for your skin to get everything it needs in every session.
Medical facials leave your skin feeling nourished, firm with improved texture, pore congestion, sun damage, rosacea, treated acne, and skin sensitivities.
One of the most popular medi-facials (and even all-over body skin treatment) is Microneedling (aka Collagen Induction Therapy).
This skin treatment offers incredible skin-rejuvenation, resulting in improved scars (including C-section scars), acne scars, stretch marks and post-surgical scars as well as minimized wrinkles and fine lines
This treatment provides you with outstanding results with a minimal downtime.
How Often Should You Get a Facial?
If your skin is issue-free, a facial treatment is still a great option. It’s recommended that you have regular facials at a minimum of every four to six weeks. Getting a maintenance facial every four to six weeks will provide your skin essentials serums and moisturizers that help your skin keep hydrated and glowing. Regular facial treatments typically include deep cleansing, essential extractions, exfoliation, nourishing serums, and high-quality moisturizers.
If you have regular facials, your skin will age slower, will be bright, always exfoliated, and glowing after each session
As an example, at our skin clinic we provide a facial treatment called Dermaplaning.
The outcome of this treatment is gorgeous and radiant skin, that is smooth and glowing. Dermaplaning facials are non-invasive and have no downtime.
What’s Involved in Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a type of manual exfoliation where an aesthetician uses a surgical, sterile blade to remove dead skin cells and facial (vellus) hair from the top layers of skin
The facial is gentle and versatile that it is safe for all skin types. It is also safe for women who are nursing or pregnant.
Importance of the Skin Analysis
Skin Analysis is essential because it makes possible for medical aestheticians to see exactly what your skin needs. During your initial consultation, your skin care technician will identify your skin type, treatment plan and the products that will be most beneficial for your skin.
The evenness of your skin’s tone, wrinkles, pores, acne spots, and sunspots will all be examined at your initial appointment. The more information your skin care technician has about your skin, the more they can help improve your skin’s condition.
A skin analysis allows your aesthetician to get a deep understanding of treated skin conditions without any guesswork. This is how they can provide you with the most optimal advice.
Your aesthetician will discuss the products you are currently using at home, your lifestyle, your hormones, your working environment, and your diet. All these elements come into play when trying to maintain outstanding facial care.
Taking Care of Your Body is Taking Care of Your Skin
We all wish to have skin that has a youthful and healthy appearance. It is achievable by keeping in mind everything your body needs to give you healthy and glowing skin.
As an example you should avoid smoking, alcohol and refined sugars. It is also vital that you get enough sleep and that you exercise regularly. Drink enough water and use a broad-spectrum nontoxic sunscreen on a daily basis.
Diet Makes a Huge Difference
A balanced diet goes a long way in giving your body and face a healthy and glowing appearance. By eating fruits and vegetables daily and avoiding processed foods, you boost your body and skin with antioxidants.
Remember Your Supplements
The best way to get all your vitamins and antioxidants is to follow a balanced diet. If your diet is lacking, taking supplements in this case is better than having deficiencies.
Your skincare routine matters greatly and it’s important to invest in the best products that will leave your skin balanced and healthy. If your skin has been neglected or you have troubled skin, remember that this isn’t going to change overnight.
Be patient. Real results require time and consistency. With the right skin treatment approach and medical skin facials you will see great improvement in your skin. Just keep in mind depending on your skin-type, it may take some time.
