Benefits of Skin Treatments
A professional skin treatment (facial) is much more than a luxury – it’s hygiene and exercise for the skin. It’s just as necessary as a routine check-up with a physician, or a teeth cleaning at the dentist. A facial increases circulation, detoxifies and stimulates the skin; it can also help slow down the aging process by customizing your skincare needs. The skin is the largest organ of the body, but it’s often the most neglected. People spend more time on their hair and nails, two parts of the body that aren’t actually living. Our facial skin is always “out there” presenting, protecting, reacting, and adjusting to the world around us. What other part of the body is uncovered continuously? Our facial skin works hard, adjusting to light and dark, extreme temperatures, pollution, dust, microbes, hormones, and chemical body changes. It has the ability to heal from cuts, scratches and abrasions and is continually renewing and protecting itself. Your skin’s needs are constantly changing, and with the guidance of a licensed professional you can achieve your healthiest skin. One of the benefits of having healthy skin is that it looks and feels its best! To maintain the results of your treatment, you must be diligent with your home care regimen, like cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and protecting. It is of utmost importance to wear a sunscreen everyday, rain or shine. You will leave your appointment not only feeling refreshed and revitalized, but equipped with the knowledge of how to take care of your skin. Facials are recommended every 4-6 weeks.
