When it comes to aesthetic treatments, facials are the most basic treatments available. Facial treatments pamper the skin and rejuvenate your appearance, and they can even be used as a tool to promote the health of your skin. At Vibrant Rejuvenation MediSpa in Commack, NY, we know that facials are an essential part of your ongoing skincare treatment, so you can enjoy youthful, radiant skin around the clock.
Things You Should Know About Facials
A facial is any type of aesthetic treatment that hydrates and treats the skin. Depending on your treatment goals, facials can exfoliate the surface of the skin, infuse the skin with active products to reduce signs of aging or target certain skin conditions, such as acne.
These treatments can be used pretty regularly compared to other aesthetic treatments, which makes them the perfect complement to your everyday skincare routine.
Face treatments are customized to meet your exact needs. Most people select their facial treatments based on their skincare concerns and trouble areas, such as age-related concerns or acne-prone skin. Based on your primary appearance goals, your facial treatment can be customized or mixed and matched to achieve your ideal results.
Different chemicals, masks, and serums will be applied during your facial to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. You will also have the option of add-on treatments that can further tailor your treatment to your unique skin needs.
Skin Analysis Treatment
If you aren’t sure where to start on your skin concerns, you may want to consider professional skin analysis. A discerning eye can help you identify your skin type and focus your treatment on reducing your visible concerns. Analyzing your skin removes the guesswork and makes it much easier to customize your facial to meet your needs. Skin analysis can even point you in the right direction of products to use at home to maintain your facial results.
Treatment for Everyone
Because these treatments are so customizable, they are appropriate for people of all ages, genders, skin types, and skin tones. There are some aesthetic treatments, like laser treatments, that can’t be used by people who have dark complexions or sensitive skin types.
The ability to build your treatment plan from the ground up makes it easy for anyone to use this treatment. Even better, because this treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, even women who are pregnant may be able to use this treatment without concern.
There is nothing more relaxing or refreshing than a facial treatment. The process of a facial involves cleansing, massaging, and hydrating the skin in such a way that you will leave your appointment feeling incredibly relaxed, as well as looking more radiant than before.
What Are Add-On Treatments?
An add-on treatment is any type of aesthetic treatment that addresses superficial skin concerns. A superficial skin concern can include anything from fine lines to wrinkles to dark spots. Depending on your needs and your skin goals, add-on treatments can enhance the effectiveness of your facial treatment. Some common aesthetic treatments include:
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that gently scrapes away dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. A medical-grade scalpel is used to eliminate peach fuzz and dead skin that can potentially clog the pores and make your complexion dull. After this treatment, products applied to the skin will penetrate more deeply and your skin will appear smooth and radiant.
A chemical peel is the oldest aesthetic treatment in the world. The very first peels date back to Cleopatra in Ancient Egypt. Chemical peels work by using acids to exfoliate the top layers of the skin to unveil fresh, blemish-free skin underneath. Many people can benefit from a chemical peel, especially those who have fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, enlarged pores, and even shallow acne scars. Chemical peels can be customized based on your skin type and skin needs.
Microneedling is one of the most popular and effective aesthetic treatments available. This treatment uses thin needles to pierce the surface of the skin and create micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural regenerative abilities. Microneedling encourages the production of collagen and elastin, which makes the skin more firm and restores skin volume. This treatment is an ideal solution for fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pigmentation concerns.
What Are Common Treatments?
There are a few common treatments that are used across the world. One of the most famous is something called a HydraFacial or an AquaFacial. This facial uses a specialized treatment device to exfoliate the skin, extract pore-clogging pollutants from the skin, and infuse the skin with special serums to encourage hydration and collagen stimulation.
What Is the Process Like?
The goal of a facial is to treat every aspect of the skin. There are several steps involved in a facial treatment, first starting with cleansing the skin, then extracting or exfoliating the skin, and finally applying active products to the skin to treat your targeted skin concerns. Afterward, a moisturizer may be applied to your skin to seal your results.
How Often Can You Have Treatment?
One of the really great things about facial treatments is that you can have them pretty regularly without any fear of harming the skin. Most people have treatments once or twice a month, depending on the treatment being used and their particular skin concerns.
