What are the Long-Term Benefits of a Regular Facial?

Most of us consider a day at the spa a luxury.  At the end of the day, you probably look forward to being pampered and prettied up in a relaxing environment.  One particular indulgence that does more than just spoil you, is a facial.

Staggering amounts of pollution, dirt, grime and dead skin accumulate on our faces.  This build up is unavoidable.  We can do the best we can to keep the skin clean, but it is not always enough.   Many advocates compare getting a facial to going to the dentist.  We brush our teeth, floss (when we remember) and still acknowledge the importance of going to the dentist for a regular deep clean.  Keeping on a regular dental schedule saves us a lot of money down the road.  Like our teeth, the skin needs to be evaluated and cleansed by a trained professional every so often to maintain a healthy complexion.  Getting facials on a regular basis, even once every few months or year, will save you from needless spending in the future.

What are some of the benefits of a routine facial you ask?  Let’s dive in:

  • Regular facials provide noticeable improvements to your skin tone, texture, and appearance.
  • Regular facials lead to less pronounced wrinkles and keeping your skin hydrated.
  • Your existing creams and moisturizers will be more effective.
  • Healthy skin is our body’s first line of defense against illness, bacteria, and disease (it is extremely important to take care of it!).
  • Professional facials help increase circulation in your skin by promoting new skin cell growth which leads to healthier and younger looking skin! 
  • General recommendation is a facial every three to four weeks (or once a month).  The life cycle of skin cell development and exfoliation.
  • Facials help this process and assure your skin always glows!
  • Removing blackheads and exfoliating dry, flaky skin, facials help fade dark spots from long-term damage and bad habits.

Are you wondering the disadvantage of regular facials?  The most common side effects after a facial are redness and blotchy skin due to the pressure of exfoliation and extraction.  You should avoid wearing makeup or using any of the products on your skin during the day or two that follow your facial to give your skin time to heal.  That’s it… that is the only disadvantage! (now that is a side effect I’m ok with!)

One important note to remember is that a single facial will not improve the quality and healthy of your skin in the long-term.  Much like going to the gym, improving the health of your skin is a continual process, requiring commitment and dedication.

At Precision Wellness, we offer a wide variety of facial services customized to fit the needs of your skin type and goals for your skin you’d like to achieve. 

What is a Back Facial?

Facials can be extremely beneficial for reducing clogged pores, acne, and dehydrated skin. This isn’t only limited to regular facials, either! Back facials have the same benefits as regular facials but allow you to cleanse and target those hard to reach areas.

Many people want a back facial so that they can have a clearer back for the summer when they’ll be wearing more open-back clothing and swimsuits. While each person is different, we work with our clients to ensure each back facial is tailored to your unique skin so that you can leave our spa happy and glowing.

Our back facials entail very similar techniques as the ones we use in our regular facial treatments. The difference is in the products we use – they’re specifically formulated so that they can penetrate the tough skin on your back. For a lot of us, we fight with back acne on a constant basis, especially in the summer as we sweat more. This treatment works to cleanse and exfoliate your back skin to get rid of that acne and create a glow.

Many of us take extreme measures when it comes to our face care routine – why shouldn’t we take some time figuring out what the rest of our skin needs as well (especially with areas you can hardly reach!)?

Stop being afraid of showing your back this summer! Book an appointment with one of our amazing estheticians here at Precision Wellness, and finally be proud of how smooth and beautiful your skin is – all around your body!
