What Is A Facial?
A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin, especially when it's given by an experienced, knowledgeable Esthetician. A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger.
A facial is the second most popular spa treatment after a massage. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care. Watch a video of a professional facial.
The Basic Steps of a Facial
At a minimum, a facial usually starts around $50 at a day spa and can go high at Special masks and serums also make the price higher.
How Often Should I Get A Facial?
It varies from person to person. Ideally, get a facial monthly because that's how long it takes the skin to regenerate. Try to have a facial at least four times a year, as the season changes. You may need it more frequently if you are trying to clear up a case of acne, especially at the beginning. Otherwise, once a month is plenty. You can overdo it, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Variations on the Classic European Facial
You might look at all the different facials and feel confused about which one to pick. Do you want an anti-aging facial, an oxygen facial, a collagen facial or a deep-cleansing facial? If you pick the wrong facial for your skin, a good Esthetician will advise you in the treatment room and change the treatment to something suited for your skin.
Variations on the classic European facial include the mini-facial (a 30-minute treatment that usually skips extractions). Use a line formulated for mature skin, with ingredients like vitamin C, and you have an anti-aging facial. It's an oxygen facial when a mist of pure oxygen is part of the treatment, or the products are formulated to deliver oxygen to the dermis. It's a collagen facial (also anti-aging) when special collagen sheets are placed on the skin. An acne facial will pay special attention to extractions. A photo facial is a separate light treatment to achieve specific results like boosting collagen or treating acne.
