While you may enjoy the relaxation you feel when receiving a facial, there are many other benefits that can create healthy glowing skin. Choosing the type of facial you want depends on what results and benefits you are specifically looking for. Some facials are designed to deep-clean the skin, others offer moisturizing benefits, and some help to relieve stress, which can often cause acne. Throughout the many benefits of receiving a facial, cleansing, increased circulation, emotional benefits and anti-aging are the ones we will discuss.
Facials, aromatherapy facials, face packs and massage with facial creams help cleanse the skin, removing toxins caused by dirt and pollution found in your everyday environment. Such facials help to reduce an increased amount of sebum, which is a natural substance that moisturizes the skin. Too much production of sebum can cause skin problems, including blackheads and acne. Cleansing facials open the pores of the skin, remove toxins and dead skin, and cleanse the surface of the skin through exfoliation that will tighten and firm the skin.
Facial treatments help to improve and possibly restore circulation to facial skin layers, increasing the flow of blood to skin cells. This rush of blood to the skin gives your skin a healthy glow and increases the size of skin cells with vital nutrients and water, which reduce the appearance of dry and or wrinkled skin. Nutrients such as vitamins and minerals found within the blood, along with adequate hydration, help maintain and develop new skin cells that are essential for a youthful, healthy appearance.
Facial treatments feel good to receive, offering relaxation. Facial massage treatments increase circulation and the flow of blood. They also include a variety of creams, aromatherapy and oils that moisturize the skin, which smell nice, and relieve stress as well as encourage peace of mind.
While there is no way to stop the aging process, facials may help slow the skin-aging process and offer you more youthful skin. Intense pulsed light, or IPL, laser treatments remove dead skin cells and increase collagen, cell growth, and development. Examples of common skin laser treatments include DermaWand, OxyLight and Baby Quasar. Each can be used to aid in anti-aging by removing dead and damaged skin and increasing production of collagen, which is essential for healthy skin cells.
