Your skin is a beautiful thing – a living organ, with cells that regenerate every 30 days or so. New cells to the surface and flatten to form the top layer of the epidermis, while older cells are constantly being shed. A facial nourishes these brand-new skin cells, providing increased blood circulation and helping to remove the dead cells on top of your skin. Facials can also treat a myriad of skin problems – acne, sun damage, age spots, dry skin, broken capillaries, fine lines, and signs of aging.
Your skin condition and age will partially how often to get a facial. Depending on your skin type and skincare goals, you may need only a monthly facial or multiple treatments over a period of months. At Lasting Impression, your medical aesthetician will set up a facial therapy plan that will give you the very best results for your skincare goals.
BENEFITS OF FACIALS IN TREATING ACNE
Facials can benefit people who suffer from acne. Whiteheads and blackheads are a non-inflammatory type of acne caused by pores clogged with oil. This type of acne, called comedonal acne, responds well to a monthly facial. The acne treatment at Lasting Impression works by reducing the top layers of your skin to reveal the younger, smoother skin underneath. You may notice an improvement in the look and feel of your skin within the first week of treatment, but it takes up to three months for your skin to fully heal and rejuvenate.
FACIALS ERASE SUN DAMAGE
Facials also work to treat the damage from the damaging rays of the sun. As we age, our skin reflects damage from the sun, lifestyle factors, and the wear-and-tear of daily life. Many people have found that a monthly facial is effective at treating age spots, sun spots, prematurely aged or sun-damaged skin, rosacea, broken capillaries, spider veins, acne.
FACIALS CAN ERASE SIGNS OF AGING
Sun damage isn’t the only factor that damages the skin. As we age, the rate of healthy young cells that migrate to the topmost layer slows down, which makes skin look dull. Harmful ultraviolet rays (UV rays), various environmental factors, and our facial expressions all accelerate our aging process resulting in the development of fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet. Additionally, over time our skin becomes thinner and drier.
We also lose collagen, the main structural protein in connective tissue that provides our skin with a plump healthy appearance. The benefit of facials lies in restoring youthful skin, and resolving these multiple skin problems, erasing the spots, lines and other irregularities that defect from our normally healthy skin.
