3 Reasons to Get a Regular Facial


Skincare is the best tool for looking and feeling better and regular facials by a medical aesthetician or a board-certified plastic surgeon are an essential part of that care.

So if you've been on the fence about why regular professional facials matter when it comes to taking care of your skin and diminishing signs of aging, here are three reasons why this popular cosmetic procedure is key to turning the clock back on getting older.

What is a Facial?

Facials are cosmetic treatments that are done to promote healthier skin and relaxation to the patient.

Regular facials can help keep your skin at its optimal and reduce the signs of aging that occur as a result of getting older or your contact with the outdoor environment.

Most facials can include one or more of the following steps:

  • Skin analysis to determine skin type
  • Thorough cleansing of the skin
  • Exfoliation
  • Extraction of blackheads, clogged pores, or pimples
  • Facial massage
  • Treatment mask
  • Application of serums and moisturizers

What are the Benefits of Facials?

Facials can help promote clear, youthful-looking skin in the people that get them. In addition to cleansing your skin, facials keep them hydrated and plump thanks to the massage, treatment masks, and serums being used.

The earlier you start getting facials, the better, with most board-certified doctors recommending beginning at the age of 25 to help get a better handle on the process of aging.

What are the Different Types of Facials?

The type of facial you get depends on several factors, including:

  • Your skin type
  • Your overall health
  • Your medical history
  • Your aesthetic goals

During a facial, the aesthetician will examine your skin and create a customized facial to suit your skin. This enables your aesthetician to choose products that compliment your skin.

Facials can include exfoliation, cleansing, moisturizing, and adding essential elements to improve your skin's health. Exfoliation removes the outer dead layer of the skin, allowing other products to penetrate more deeply and enhance new, healthy skin growth.

Three Reasons to Get a Facial

Reduce Signs of Aging

Aging is the natural process of life, but signs of aging, like hyperpigmentation and wrinkles, can be reduced, and facials help turn the clock back. During your facial, your aesthetician may also suggest other skin treatments to handle peculiar skin issues like acne, wrinkles, and dark spots.

The treatments could include:

  • Hydrafacials
    Hydrafacials provide the skin with more moisture—essential for the maintenance of body cells, as well as a younger-looking appearance. This multi-purpose facial makes use of a medical-grade serum to weaken dead skin cells, combining deep cleansing with exfoliation, extraction, antioxidants, and protection to achieve healthy skin.

  • Microdermabrasion
    Pollution, sun, and other harmful elements can result in skin issues like acne, lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, and age spots. When faced with any of these issues, microdermabrasion is one of the effective facial treatments to treat them.

    In microdermabrasion treatment, a spray of microcrystal is used to remove dead skin, revealing the youthful skin underneath. This treatment is ideal for people with fine lines, uneven pigmentation, acne, or clogged pores.

  • Hyaluronic acid
    Naturally occurring in the body, hyaluronic acid is responsible for plumpness and keeping our skin hydrated. Unfortunately, as you age, its production reduces, increasing the skin's rate of wrinkling. However, facials that provide the skin with artificial hyaluronic acid can work as an adequate substitute.

Improve Confidence

Getting regular facials is a straightforward way to not just get your skin right but clear your mind as well. Facials can be a rejuvenating experience for your face, as well as your self-confidence.

Getting a facial can also help you know how your skin reacts to hormones and stress. A board-certified doctor specializing in facials will help develop a facial that's right for your skin and body.

Relive the Skin from Stress

Facials are a top-notch way to remove the weariness that stress induces on your physical body. A facial comprises different massage techniques that can do a lot for the skin. The gentle massaging and rubbing of the skin helps stimulate and relax the face muscles while dissolving stress and tension in the facial muscles, making the skin look more relaxed and plump.

Facials also regulate blood circulation and blood pressure causing your skin to look more radiant and healthy.

Facials are Safe When Performed by a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon or Trained Medical Aesthetician
