What Are the Benefits of a Facial?
A facial is an experience that leaves your skin cleaner, softer, hydrated, and truly transformed. Several key areas facials can help:
Improve blood flow
Clear clogged pores
Prevent sun damage
Promote cell renewal
Give you a youthful, natural glow!
How Frequently Should I Get a Facial?
It is recommend that people have a professional facial about every three to four weeks. That's how long it takes the skin to move through the full life cycle of skin cell growth and exfoliation. Regular treatments will help keep your skin refreshed, clear, and toned. However, if you tend to be on the oily side, you may need more frequent visits to achieve the desired results. Likewise, correction facials also require a case by case assessment.
Can I Wear Makeup After My Facial?
We would recommend postponing makeup wear for at least 24 hours following a facial. We would also recommend cleaning your makeup brushes and equipment before applying makeup again.
Are There Ingredients I Should Avoid Based on My Skin Type?
Please review our skincare guide for a listing of ingredients to potentially avoid. Please note the information is simply a guide and may not be inclusive of all ingredients based on your specific skin type, skin conditions and additional factors. Please schedule an appointment to discuss further.
What is Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy)?
Microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy, creating controlled injuries underneath the skin’s surface. The injury induces the body to respond through the formation of new tissue. In addition to inducing collagen, the channels made from the micro-needles allow topical gels and creams to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of skin. Microneedling is beneficial for treating acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. After microneedling, your skin works fairly quickly to rejuvenate new tissue.In theory, you should see results within a couple of weeks. To maintain the results of your treatment, we recommend multiple sessions and a good at-home routine.
