What You Should Know About Facials & Their Benefits June 5, 2018

What You Should Know About Facials & Their Benefits , Brooklyn, New York

A facial is a popular spa treatment involving deep cleansing of the skin. It typically includes several treatments over the course of 30 minutes or an hour. You can also combine it with other spa services such as a massage. If you are considering a facial for the first time, here is a brief guide to the process and its benefits for your skin.

What Happens

First, you’ll have a consultation with the aesthetician about your skin and what it needs, such as acne treatment or intense hydration. You will lie down on a cushioned spa table for a thorough cleansing to remove makeup and excess oil. The aesthetician then steams and exfoliates the skin to open pores and slough dead cells. This is followed by the extraction of any blackheads and whiteheads using gloved fingers or a special tool.

Depending on the facial you select, the aesthetician will apply a mask formulated for your skin type before using moisturizer and massaging the face and neck.

The Benefits

Your skin looks healthier and younger right away. How frequent you need them depends on your skin type and its current condition.

If you have extremely sensitive skin, tell the aesthetician so they don’t use products containing alcohol and other harsh ingredients. Similarly, certain skin conditions do not react well to standard facials, such as rosacea. If you have this condition, you should avoid serious exfoliation or microdermabrasion. What you need is a light therapy facial to shrink blood vessels, such as an LED or IPL photofacial. These treatments are also used to boost collagen and treat acne and scarring.
