Many aestheticians, including our own medical aesthetician Suzanne, believe facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion are all necessary to any beauty regimen as each can achieve improvements the others can’t. A combination of peels and microdermabrasion is among the best ways to deeply exfoliate the skin to get rid of a tired “muddy” appearance to the complexion and to slough off surface imperfections like pigment, surface scars, and fine lines, and promote skin firming and tightness. However repeated exfoliation alone can sometimes give a “flatness” to the skin from repeatedly removing dermal layers. To add luminosity and dewiness, the skin needs moisture and nourishment, and that’s where facials are ideal. During a facial, which typically takes about an hour, the skin has time to absorb the benefits of antioxidants and other antiaging and antiinflammatory compounds, and to rehydrate. Facials can be tailored to different skin types and conditions. In addition to our signature Medical Facial, which is intended for all skin types and which uses medical-grade therapeutic products to cleanse, hydrate and protect the skin from aging influences, our newly introduced Oily/Acne Facial is aimed at calming inflamed skin, extracting impurities, reducing oil and sebum production, and tightening pores, and our Dry/Mature Skin Facial emphasizes hydration, reduction of itch and irritation, and smoothing texture and tone. Many people will benefit from a combination of Medical Facials alternating with one of our skin type specific facials as well as peels or microdermabrasion for optimal results.
Finally, one of the nicest advantages of a facial is that it is a soothing and relaxing break from our busy lives, a lovely treat that lets us look and feel refreshed as we return to the rest of our day!
