Facials are a multi-step skin treatment that cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin. They are designed to help your skin look younger and create a well-hydrated complexion.
Facials are good for all skin types, all ages and all genders. However, certain types of facials may not be recommended for individuals with rosacea, so always check with your doctor to ensure you are a good candidate.
Facials are tailored to fit your skin type – normal, dry, combination or oily. The treatments are relaxing as well as therapeutic, and they may be done either manually or with a machine, depending on your desired treatment. The overall approach is to create an experience that leaves your face feeling refreshed while at the same time working with your skin’s specific needs.
Some redness may follow a facial, but there are no long-lasting side effects.
Results vary from one person to the next, but many experts recommend a monthly facial because that’s how long it takes the skin to rejuvenate. Doing it more frequently than that is not advised, particularly if you have sensitive skin.
The doctors at U.S. Dermatology Partners can help you develop a facial program that is right for your skin.
