Facials are a perfect skin treatment to get on a regular basis as they are affordable and can do wonders for your skin if done routinely. Most of the time, if your skin looks dull, it could use a facial to reveal the new skin below. Newly exfoliated skin more readily absorbs nutrients and can look younger, fresher, and healthier. A Facial can be beneficial not only from an aesthetic standpoint, but also for the health of your skin.
What is a facial and why do I need one?
A facial is a professional cleansing, purifying, and beautifying treatment of the skin on the face and neck. Facials are the number one treatment performed by estheticians, and a good way for your therapist to get a good understanding of your skin prior to suggesting more aggressive treatments.
For most people, facials can be scheduled every four weeks, although your therapist may recommend a different schedule. There are many variations of facials based on different needs, as well as different lengths of time. A mini facial may be only 20–30 minutes in length, while a more luxurious version may be 75–90 minutes in length. Tell your esthetician exactly what you want to get out of your facial, and she/he will be able to recommend a facial to meet your needs.
After the facial
After a facial, your skin will probably be soft, smooth and well hydrated. However, if multiple extractions were needed or if you required a fair amount of exfoliation, your face may be somewhat rosy for one to two hours or more, depending on how sensitive your skin is. This is quite normal. You can apply mineral makeup after your facial if there is some redness you want to conceal.
The average facial cost is between $60 – $85. See our Signature Facial Page for more information.
