Whether you are wanting to unwind after a long day or are seeking a brighter and more radiant complexion,  our skin experts are here to help you achieve the beautiful glowing skin of your dreams.

You exercise often, you eat right and you get frequent haircuts, so why wouldn’t you get a facial? As with most other beauty and health matters, facials help prevent and treat common problems.

Take the fall season, for example. When you turn the heat on for the first time in October, you might notice a change in your skin. Inside heat can dehydrate skin and facials can drastically correct a lack of moisture. And every April when the weather warms up a bit, skin can get oilier and create breakouts. Facials can help with these and many other skin ailments.

Cleansing: Facials, face packs, aromatherapy facials and massage with facial creams and other remedies help deep cleanse the skin, removing toxins caused by pollution, grease and dirt found in your everyday environment. Such facials help to reduce an overabundance of sebum, which is a natural substance moisturizes and lubricates the skin. Overproduction of sebum can cause skin problems, including blackheads and acne. Cleansing facials open the pores of the skin, remove dead skin and toxins from the face, and clean the surface of the skin through exfoliation that tightens and firms the skin.

Increased Circulation: Facial treatments help to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers, increasing the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to skin cells, according to the Day Spas website. This rush of blood to the skin gives your skin a healthy glow and plumps skin cells with vital nutrients and water, which reduce the appearance of wrinkled and dry skin. Nutrients like blood, vitamins and minerals found in the blood, along with adequate hydration, help develop and maintain new skin cells, essential for a youthful, healthy appearance.

Emotional Benefits: Facial treatments feel good, offering soothing relaxation, according to Day Spas. Facial massage treatments increase circulation and the flow of blood, and they include a variety of creams, aromatherapy and oils that moisturize the skin, smell good, and relieve stress as well as encourage peace of mind and contentment.

Anti-Aging: While there is no way to stop the aging process, a variety of facial treatments and technologies may help slow the skin-aging process and offer you more youthful, supple skin.

Your facial routine will depend on your skin type, it is recommended seeing your esthetician once a month if you can manage it: “For dry skin or dehydrated skin it is more important to be diligent in winter more than summer. In summer it is more important for oily skin to get facials. Sunscreen and being outside can affect oily skin. Facials prevent problems for everyone.”

Facials are relaxing and good for you, but there can be a few uncomfortable moments in the process. But don’t worry, they’ll be well worth it in the end.

One seemingly unpleasant part: Extractions, when your esthetician deep cleans your pores. There’s a reason you shouldn’t pick at your skin at home; extractions should only be done by a trained professional esthetician.

An esthetician has a magnifying glass. There has to be the right pressure and angle to achieve good results. The skin is properly prepared and softened for successful extraction, the esthetician does NOT get emotionally involved with a zit. If it’s not ready it’s not ready. Premature extraction can cause scarring. Only a good esthetician will know that.

WHAT TO CONSIDER :  there’s some redness that follows a facial. But don’t worry, it’ll go away in about a day! The worst your skin will look is that same day in some cases. If your skin has a lot of breakouts, it may take a few more days to heal what was already there. But it should start improving with facials unless it’s a systemic problem. In that case the esthetician should tell you that you may need the services of a dermatologist.
