Why You Need a Medical Facial

facialThere’s a wealth of information about skin care that’s readily available to us at the click of a mouse. That more than likely means your bathroom is already filled with products, peels, masks, scrubs, etc., which can give you a serious deep clean. But while it’s great to practice good skin care, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should be skipping out on seeking professional help. Even though you may not suffer from severe acne or other chronic conditions, your complexion will still benefit from regular medical facials from a trained medical esthetician.

Facials are the ultimate anti-aging treatment. Staying young and fresh-faced means taking care of yourself and your skin. What you do at home is only one part of this equation. The other is receiving the deep cleansing, exfoliation and hydration only a facial can provide. Getting a facial means you are doing your part to slow down the clock. Think of getting a facial as analogous to going to the dentist for a routine cleaning. Brushing at home is necessary, but you rely on a professional for the deep cleansing and maintenance to keep your pearly whites in tiptop shape. Why stop at your teeth?

What does a medical facial do you ask? Well, a medical facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion. These facials differ from spa facials in that nothing is pre-determined before your appointment. Upon check-in our esthetician will analyze your skin and customizes your facial to your skin’s needs. We’ll go over any concerns you may have about your skin, such as unexpected dry or oily areas, reactions to skin care products or the environment, and how you can best incorporate medical grade skin care products in to your daily regimen in order to prolong the results of the medical facial.

How often you should get a facial depends on several factors: your skin type, skin condition, skin care goals, your budget, and your age. On average, getting a professional facial once a month is ideal for someone who wants to take good care of their skin. That’s because the skin is a living organ, and it takes about 30 days for the cells to move up from the dermis to the surface, or epidermis, where they flatten out, die and slough off. A professional facial stimulates that exfoliation process, keeping the skin more toned and youthful-looking. Try to have a facial at least four times a year, as the season changes.
