People undergo a facials treatment for different reasons: Some would like to remove blackheads while others need an anti-aging treatment. Others just want to unwind and be pampered. Before undergoing any type of treatment, no matter how gentle, it is important to inform yourself about what is involved so that you can make the best decision for your individual needs.
Facial Treatments
A facial is basically a skin rejuvenation treatment that helps to exfoliate, cleanse, and nourish your skin, leading to a well hydrated, clear complexion that makes you appear more youthful. Patients obtain the best results when they make facials a regular part of their beauty routine.
The process of getting a facial may begin with a consultation. You may fill out a questionnaire about your skin goals, what medications and supplements you are taking, and any skin care products that you are using. Products such as retinol can impact the kind of treatments that we recommend.
Glycolic Peel
A light chemical peel facials treatment containing a mild acid like glycolic acid makes an effective skin exfoliation treatment for those who need treatment for enlarged pores, superficial scars, or dull skin tone. The treatment never requires sedation or downtime.
As your skin cells develop and mature, they rise to the surface layers of your skin. When they die, they normally slough off and allow room for the development of new skin cells. In some people, this material can build up and dull the complexion. The glycolic peel works by removing this material, allowing your skin to glow.
We will apply a chemical solution containing glycolic acid, or some other mild acid, to your skin for a specific amount of time. After it has broken up the molecular bonds of inorganic material on the surface of your skin, new skin can develop and emerge to brighten your complexion.
The HydraFacial® treatment works for a variety of skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, poor skin texture, brown spots, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. This enlivening treatment can be performed in as little as half an hour. It offers long-term benefits and can be specifically formulated to meet your individual needs. It provides immediate results with no irritation or downtime.
HydraFacial® treatments are known for removing dead skin cells as they simultaneously immerse your skin in hydrating, cleansing, and moisturizing serums. This type of facial is extremely refreshing, soothing, and instantly effective.
Many patients notice visible improvements in the condition of their skin after only one treatment. The hydration and smoothing effects can last up to one week, or even longer. We recommend regular treatments to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and blemishes.
