Facials An Effective Anti-Aging Treatment

Facials Open Pores, Improve Blood Flow, Purge Toxins

Few things feel more indulgent than a great facial. During the 30-to-60-minute procedure, your skin will be steam cleaned, sloughed, and slathered with a variety of nutrient-rich masks, serums, and moisturizers. As your complexion reaps the benefits of all that pampering, your mental health will get a boost as well, thanks to a tension-taming combo of soothing scents, soft music and gentle massage.

Along with squeaky-clean skin and a tranquil mind, you may also leave the spa with a few choice tidbits offered by the aesthetician— everything from the transformative powers of the treatment to at-home skin care strategies.

“I call it spa science because there isn’t a lot of science behind many of the claims,” says Doris Day M.D., clinical associate professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center. Still, she and other dermatologists are fans of the facial, provided it’s under the guidance of a trained professional and customized for your skin type. “Enjoy the process, but take the advice with a grain of salt,” she says. “Think of a facial as a treat rather than a medical treatment.”

We polled women for “facts” they’ve heard at the spa or salon, then asked three top docs to set the record straight. Read on to find out the truth behind that lavender oil and Enya.

Facials Important To Comprehensive Skin Care

Chicago Skin Care Expert Explains Benefits Of Facial Treatment

Do you take care of your hands and feet with manicures and pedicures but neglect your face, your face that people see first? Well it’s time to have a personalized facial that not only keeps your skin healthy and glowing but your body, mind and spirit relaxed and calm. Facials need to be performed about every 4 to 8 weeks depending on your skin’s needs.

This time of year your skin tends to be more dry and needs more hydrating and lubricating. Exfoliation is necessary first to remove the dead cell buildup which can make the face look dry and wrinkly. Removing this buildup will also allow for better penetration of products. There is a fine line in exfoliating. Too much exfoliating can make the skin more thin and sensitive and make it age faster, too little won’t take the dead cells off well enough.

The facial treatment incorporates this with enzymes or glycolic acid, along with face massage and masks or LED (light) therapy or radio frequency.  Various products with safe, effective ingredients are used to help repair the lipid barrier that holds the moisture to protect the face from the elements.  They also hydrate, lubricate and can help with rosacea, hyper-pigmentation, acne, congestion, and more, keeping the skin clear, healthy, glowing and younger looking.

Your home care routine is very important too, and lower end products are not the answer. Many skin care products don’t have the adequate percentages of the ingredients necessary for healthy skin.

Many skin care products have irritating or carcinogenic ingredients in them. You can be assured that the skin care lines that I carry are safe and effective. I have had a lot of training about facial treatments and the what to look for and be aware of in skin care, so I can advise you as to what your skin needs.
