There are many reasons to have a facial, ideally on a monthly basis.
Your skin’s outermost layer will completely renew itself approximately every 28 days. Your skin cells are constantly being replicated to replace the old cells. Facials give your skin a boost and your skin cells will start to replicate the now healthier cells. Many skin care products can take up to six weeks to start treating active skin cells, but facials speed up the renewal process and make these products work much more efficiently.
Facials are incredibly relaxing.
Facials cause an increased circulation of the blood under the skin which helps facilitate the renewal of skin cells. Facials help smooth fine lines and promote collagen production.
Facials rid you of the waste that lies underneath the skin which causes puffiness, ruddiness and fluid retention.
Facials assist in detoxification by manipulating the lymphatic system that lies underneath your skin.
Facials offer deep cleansing of the skin’s pores.
Keeping pores clean helps to maintain clear skin and keep pore size small. Pores can start to widen as oil and other debris accumulates.
Facials offer a deep exfoliation treatment that is imperative for penetration of serums and other products.
Pores are unclogged, skin is hydrated, and your skin tone is clearer, and more even after facials.
Facials, with the use of an exfoliating treatment, facial massage
all the nourishing antioxidants and other products, relieve dehydrated skin, and make your skin healthier by slowing the aging process.
Microdermabrasion is the removal of dead skin cells to give a brighter, smoother appearance to any skin in need of exfoliation. There is no down time to this procedure and it is great for any skin type.
The Vitalize Peel is perfect for individuals with mild to moderate skin conditions including sun damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles. The amount of peeling varies, depending upon skin type and condition. It can range from mild flaking to noticeable peeling. The results are cumulative and maximum benefits are seen after a series of three or more, although you will see immediate results. This peel can be repeated every three weeks.
The Illuminize Peel is a gentle, superficial peel that will offer tighter skin, increased glow, improved skin texture, color and clarity. This peel is gentle enough to use every two weeks until you get the results you desire. This peel is great for those who have never tried a chemical peel or those who have fine lines and would like a more youthful appearance.
The Rejuvenize Peel is the deepest of the SkinMedica Peels. It is recommended for moderate to severe skin conditions, including sun damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne, acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles and rough textures. Results are significant. Again, results are immediate, though as with the Vitalize Peel® results are cumulative and maximum benefits are seen after a series of three or more. This peel can be applied every 4-6 weeks until desired results are obtained. Peeling generally starts between 48-72 hours after receiving the peel and can last from 2-5 days. The amount of peeling depends upon skin type and condition.
