When many people think about facials, they envision a relaxing esthetics treatment received at a salon or while on vacation. While facials do deliver outstanding relaxation, a medical grade facial offers numerous other benefits.
When performed by a highly skilled medical esthetics professional, facials treat common skin issues like dry, oily, aging, acne-prone, or sensitive skin. They are also highly customizable, allowing your practitioner to create an experience that enhances your skin.
Facials are hands-on treatments performed in a one-on-one setting. They’re a great way to spend an hour or more focusing on relaxation and wellness while also delivering impressive skin benefits.
A professional facial is designed to address your current skin health needs. There are some elements, however, that are common among almost all types of facials.
A thorough cleansing is always part of the process. Your practitioner chooses a cleanser formulated for your skin and works the product deep into your skin. Double cleansing is often used to achieve a deeper cleanse.
Toning is often the next step and works to remove any lingering traces of makeup, skin products, or oils and debris. A great toner also prepares your skin to accept the facial products.
Serums, masks, or other treatments focus on addressing your specific needs. Your practitioner might use facial massage techniques to help the products penetrate deeply and to enhance circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Moisturizing is always part of the process, even if you have oily or acne-prone skin. Maintaining optimal moisture levels is a critical part of healthy skin.
Brookings Diseases of the Skin and Esthetics offers several facials customized for your skin. Some examples of current offerings include:
You can also choose the Beautiful Back Facial, an option that uses the same steps and products used in facials to treat the skin on your back and shoulders.
When you come in for your facial, your practitioner begins with a quick skin assessment and a discussion of your treatment goals. This allows them to recommend which facial treatments offer the best fit.
