In addition to providing a relaxing and pampering experience, getting a facial can also help to improve the appearance of your skin. When you visit your dermatologist for a facial, you will enjoy both the mental and physical benefits of the treatment. Learn more about what a facial does and what to expect.
- Mental Relaxation: Spending time on and for yourself can be good for your mental state. Many effective skincare treatments are non-invasive and painless, helping to improve your skin while you stay relaxed, less stressed and more rested.
- Cleansing: A facial provides your skin with a deep cleansing that you can't achieve at home. Using special techniques and products, your doctor or aesthetician will clean deep into your pores to remove dirt, bacteria and dead skin cells. This step also helps to prepare your skin to fully absorb products that are applied to your skin after cleansing.
- Exfoliation: Exfoliation is an important step that removes the dead skin cells that can make your skin look dull, cause breakouts, and amplify signs of aging. Some facials utilize a scrub to exfoliate your skin while others may use a chemical substance to remove imperfections and dead skin cells. Regularly removing dead skin cells will help your skin stay healthier, look fresher, and allow other skin care treatments to permeate its surface.
- Increased Circulation: Facial treatments can increase blood flow to your face, which provides many beneficial effects including the removal of cell impurities and a healthy, rosy glow.
A facial can be customized to meet your specific needs. If you have wrinkles, for example, your dermatologist can adjust your treatment to combat signs of aging. If you have acne, your treatment will focus on treating and preventing blemishes. Your dermatologist or aesthetician will work with you to determine the best course of treatment.
