Are Facials Worth It?
Facials are professional skin care service offered at a facial massage bar or med spa performed by a licensed aesthetician. They are extremely beneficial for healing and diminishing skin problems as well as maintaining a clear complexion.
Benefits of Getting a Facial
- Clean the skin and rid it of any impurities
- Improve the skin’s texture
- Brighten the complexion
- Clear acne
- Reduce pore size
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars
- Treat any other skin concerns
A facial treatment is a customized variety of components designed to suit the skin care needs of the individual that can include steam, deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, masking, clinical-grade peels, LED light therapy, microdermabrasion, oxygen therapy, cool therapy, lasers, high frequency, and more. The specific combination of treatments you receive in your facial will depend on your age, skin type, skin care goals and skin problems.
Skin care experts recommend going to places like a facial massage bar about once a month for a facial. This time frame allows you to reap the most benefits from a facial because it means your skin will receive the proper treatments on a regular basis. Doing this allows a professional to continually aid in the healing of any skin care concerns, maintain the radiant complexion you already have and prevent any new skin care concerns from arising- it will also nip any newly forming skin care concerns in the bud! Most of the products and machines that are used in a facial are professional grade, meaning they’re extra strong, effective, and aren’t available to the public, so a facial is the best way to receive the maximum level of care. If you maintain a regular facial schedule, you will notice your skin’s texture, pores, health, clarity, and vibrance improve and your complexion will look more youthful and rejuvenated overall.
While facials are one of the best tools for healing, changing, or maintaining your skin care goals, the importance of having a good facial skin care routine at home can’t be overlooked. Your at-home skin care routine can accelerate or hinder the progress your skin is making by receiving a facial. Using the right serums, creams, oils, and other products suited towards your skin type and skin care goals enhance the benefits of a facial and help prevent new problems from developing. This maintenance makes your facials more effective and when you keep up a steady routine at home, it allows the professional treatments to enhance your skin exponentially in ways you can’t at home.
