I take care of my skin daily with my skincare regimen,

do I really need to get a facial, too?

Following a daily skincare regimen is a crucial step in maintaining your skin. But, getting facials on a regular basis is equally as crucial. As a licensed and trained skincare professional, I can help you truly understand your skin. For example, I can tell you how your skin is responding to hormones, pollution, stress, and other elements. Your skin may look and feel perfectly fine on the surface, but, the layers below the surface may be telling a different story.

What's so great about a facial?

Let's start with this... professional-grade ingredients provide a level of exfoliation that cannot be achieved with at-home skin care products.

  • New skin cells are made in the basal layer (aka the stratum germinativum) of the epidermis and travel up, through the remaining four layers, settling on the surface layer (aka the stratum corneum). This process takes about one month and is called desquamation.

  • Our skin sheds approximately 500 million dead cells per day!

At-home products only remove a fraction of this dead cell build-up, which causes the skin to look dull, and emphasizes fine lines and hyperpigmentation.

  • BENEFIT #1: Facials remove surface pollutants and accumulated dead skin cells, revealing a brighter, tighter, smoother complexion.

Do you feel like your at-home products just aren't as effective as they used to be?? Perhaps it's an absorption issue...

During a facial, your skin is deeply cleansed and steamed, unclogging congested pores. As a result, the skin's absorption rate is increased significantly, making your products far more effective!

  • BENEFIT #2: Clean, uncongested pores = a significant increase in product efficacy!

We all want to slow down the aging process, right? Guess what?!? Facials can do just that!

Regular facials increase circulation and boost cell regeneration and collagen production, giving you younger looking skin.

  • BENEFIT #3: Facials prevent the effects of aging on the skin!

Facials are one of the best ways to show yourself some love! Perhaps the most beneficial effect of a facial is the reduction of anxiety and negative mood status, and increased sympathetic nervous system activity. These benefits are confirmed in a study conducted by five scientists at the Science Institute, Kyushu University in Japan. Their study is published here (1).

  • BENEFIT #4: Facials reduce psychological distress and activate the sympathetic nervous system.

How often should I get a facial?

That depends on your skin condition and goals...

At the very least, facials are necessary at the change of every season. However, if you have acne, rosacea, are trying to target fine lines and wrinkles and/or hyperpigmentation, you will need to schedule more often.

Clients with acne will need a facial about every other week for 8 to 10 sessions, or until the condition is under control. Clients looking to combat the effects of aging need to a facial at least once a month to keep skin looking and feeling its best.
