How Often Should You Get a Facial?

how often should you get a facial

Professional facials are the most effective way to get and maintain a clear, radiant complexion. A basic facial is a multi-step treatment that targets cleansing pores, exfoliating the face, and treating skin issues. Beyond a basic facial, services can include products and treatments to help with anti-aging, improving the skin’s texture, and healing damaged skin. But there’s more to facials than just the basics of the service – like which facial is right for you, how to budget for a facial, and how often to incorporate them into your skincare routine. Read on to learn more about the recommended frequency of facials, how much they cost, and some of our favorite Skin Camp facials.


How Often Should You Get a Facial?

Most experts advise that you should get a professional facial once every four to six weeks. That’s because it takes new skin cells about four weeks to generate – and you want to wait for your new skin turnover before your next treatment. Consistency is a key component to maintaining the benefits and results of a facial, so it’s important to stay on schedule with your appointments. It’s always a good idea to consult with your skincare professional about your treatment schedule to customize it for your specific skincare needs and concerns.


How Much Does a Facial Cost?

The results of consistent facials speak for themselves with your glowing complexion, but is it financially feasible to maintain routine facials? How much is a facial? You can expect to pay around $50 for a basic facial. More extensive treatments range from $75 to $95 and can cost upwards of $100 when using state-of-the-art skincare devices and technology. The good news is most facial bars have a menu that includes additional boosters or add-ons to your service. These include things like peels, pore extractions, facial cupping, and LED light therapy. That means you can customize the price and your facial to make sure it suits your skincare needs and your budget.


We’ve rounded up three of our favorite Skin Camp facials. No matter what skincare issues or concerns you have, there’s something for everyone!


  1. Glow Facial

When you want to give your skin a literal glow up, there’s no better way than the Glow Facial! This energizing and brightening treatment gives the skin a luminous complexion that will make you look and feel “lit from within” – a downright steal at $75. The rejuvenating treatment includes a peel, Signature Lift & Contour massage, and a facial roller to boost skin’s brightness – and your confidence. It’s recommended once every four to six weeks and it’s also the perfect facial to get before a big event.


  1. Detox Facial

Sometimes our skin needs a deep clean and reset – just like our gut. The Detox Facial is a $90 multitasking facial treatment that removes dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin. It deeply cleanses the skin, shrinks pores, balances the skin’s tone and texture, defines, enhances facial features, and leaves you with a youthful, glowing complexion. The Detox Facial is recommended for all skin types one every four to six weeks ­but if your skin is on the oily side, you will want to keep your appointments closer to the four-week mark. This is the kind of detox you’ll look forward to!


  1. Lift Facial

The Lift Facial is the ultimate workout for the skin! It costs $125 and is chock full of benefits that result in rejuvenated skin ­– and so much more. This treatment uses the trifecta of skincare all-stars: Microdermabrasion, microcurrent treatment, and a facial massage to purify and lift your skin. It also enhances and defines facial features, exercises the facial muscles, prevents early signs of aging, deeply cleans the skin of impurities, shrinks pores, and balances skin tone and texture to give you a youthful complexion. This facial is safe for all skin types to get once every four to six weeks. This is one of the more extensive facial treatments so it can also be scheduled in place of a basic facial every few appointments, depending on your skincare concerns and needs.


If you’re in the Los Angeles or West Hollywood area and are ready to book your facial or another treatment on our menu, Skin Camp’s estheticians will give you that clear, glowing complexion you crave.
