Facials offer a number of benefits. They cleanse and rejuvenate the skin while helping to ward off signs of aging. They’re also a great way to relax and relieve stress. Many women make this skincare treatment a regular part of their beauty regimen, and Beauty Co. in Raleigh, NC offers a number of different facials to choose from. But just how often should you get facials?
What Are Facials?
This skincare treatment deeply cleanses and nourishes your face. The treatment, which often takes about an hour, involves exfoliating and hydrating your skin, clearing out your pores, and other steps. This spa service can improve your complexion and give your face a healthier and more youthful glow. Our esthetician will tailor your facial to the particular needs of your skin, and you’ll leave our office with a soft, smooth face that’s free of blackheads and rough patches. This service is also a great way to relax and pamper yourself after a stressful week.
Can I Combine This Treatment With Another Spa Service?
Yes. In fact, combining this treatment with another spa service can be a great way of getting the most out of your skincare regimen. Many of our clients combine facials with dermaplaning, a popular treatment that involves shaving the face to remove unwanted hair and rejuvenate the skin. Lip and eye masks, which smooth and hydrate those parts of the face, are also great treatments to add on.
How Often Should I Get a Facial?
After their first experience with this treatment, many women become hooked. But how frequently should you schedule this service? One rule of thumb calls for scheduling this treatment once a month. It takes about 28 days for the cells in your skin to regenerate, and scheduling your sessions at least four weeks apart allows the skin to go through that process. While it may be tempting to schedule this soothing treatment more than once a month, doing so may irritate your skin. The frequency of your facials also depends on other factors, including the condition of your skin, your age, and your aesthetic goals.
Your Skin’s Condition
Clients who regularly experience acne, blackheads, and similar issues sometimes benefit from sticking to a fairly regular treatment schedule. One of the benefits associated with a facial is the thorough cleansing it offers, which can be helpful to clients with these conditions. Your esthetician will be able to evaluate your skin’s condition and make recommendations about a schedule that will support your needs.
Your Skin’s Type
If your skin tends to be oily, more regular treatments may help you keep your pores clean and clear. Clients who have sensitive skin sometimes go longer between appointments to avoid irritating their skin.
As clients age, they often find that they need to be more intentional about their skincare regimen. Skin cell growth can slow, and aging skin sometimes needs a little extra help in stimulating collagen. Clients who needed a facial once every two or three months in their thirties and forties might benefit from increasing the frequency of their treatments as they reach middle age.
Your Aesthetic Goals
Your treatment schedule can also be designed to accommodate your personal goals and calendar. Whether you want a little extra glow for a special upcoming event or you want to embark on a long-term anti-aging regimen, your esthetician can develop a treatment plan that can help you meet your aesthetic goals.
Clients who live or work where pollution is more of a problem sometimes benefit from more regular treatments.
Your Personal Schedule and Budget
Facials are not a lengthy spa service, and many clients even schedule them for their lunch hours, but your personal schedule and budget will also likely be factors as you begin to establish a treatment regimen.
What Other Benefits Does This Treatment Offer?
One of the other benefits associated with this treatment is that it ensures you are checking in regularly with an esthetician and that your skin is getting the professional attention and maintenance it deserves. Estheticians can help monitor your skin and any changes it undergoes. They can recommend skincare products and help you establish a healthful regimen. Among the other benefits facials offer are special care for the under-eye area and improved circulation.
The fragile skin under your eyes needs to be treated carefully. The creams applied to this part of the face during treatment can help address dark circles, crow’s feet, and bags, brightening the appearance of your upper face.
The massage that is a part of this treatment can bolster blood circulation in the face and ensure that skin cells are getting the oxygen they need to thrive and give off a healthy glow.
