11 Reasons to Get a Professional Facial

What are the benefits of receiving a professional treatment? Getting a facial from an esthetician offers more than just relaxation – it helps you achieve healthier, clearer, and more beautiful skin. Even if you feel your at home routine is working just fine, visiting a licensed professional can completely change the way you view and treat your skin. Here are 11 reasons why.


1. Benefits of a facial:

  • Deep cleanses and exfoliates

  • Increases circulation and detoxifies

  • Relaxes the senses, nerves, and muscles

  • Stimulates the skin’s functions and metabolism

  • Slows down premature aging

  • Treats conditions such as dryness, oiliness or redness

  • Softens wrinkles and aging lines

  • Helps clear up blemishes and minor acne

2. Expert Skin Analysis:  

  • A benefit of getting your skin analyzed during a facial is that the esthetician will see your skin and be able to identify your skin type. This allows the esthetician to properly treat your skin’s unique needs with professional grade products and make recommendations for your home care routine.

3. Professional Strength Exfoliation:  

  • Removing dead skin cells makes the skin smoother and helps product penetration by unblocking the surface. Exfoliation promotes stimulation which increases cell turnover rate. Your esthetician will choose a type of exfoliation specifically catered towards your skin type and needs. Resulting in smoother skin, softening of fine lines and breaking up of skin discoloration to promote a more even skin tone.

4. Extractions:

  • Extractions are the removal of blackheads and clogged pores. With proper skin preparation and softening techniques your esthetician will use a professional and skilled method to gently extract impurities without harming the skin.

5. Hydration:

  • In order to maintain healthy skin, it is important to keep it topically hydrated. A facial will help to regulate your skin’s proper moisture level and protect the barrier layer of the skin. Unlike popular belief, every skin type needs hydration including those with oily and acne prone skin. At home you may be using the wrong type of products, depriving your skin of the moisture it really needs. While an esthetician will be able to advise you on the products most suitable for your skins needs.  Hydrated skin is healthy skin.

6. Increases Circulation and Encourage a Glow:  

  • Skin’s health is impaired when blood circulation slows. Slowed circulation due to aging skin results in dull, tired looking skin. Massage and steam increase blood flow which brings new nutrients to the skin, helping achieve a youthful glow.

7. A Scope for Skin Cancer:  

  • It is important to frequently check your skin for any changes and abnormal growths. These changes are generally subtle and easy to overlook as you may not notice them at first. A benefit of working with a licensed esthetician is that she will analyze your skin and note of any changes or abnormalities that should be looked at further by a doctor.

8. Stress Relief:

  • Facials are very relaxing and immediately de-stress you both physically and mentally. Imagine a room with dim lighting, soft music, and a warm cozy bed. This is the perfect environment to completely relax and unwind while your skin is being treated by a professional with the very best products on the market. Studies show stress can lead to unhealthy skin. So what’s a better way to de-stress and be pampered than a facial? Schedule yourself some “me time” and treat yourself.

9. Problem Solve:

  • Whether its acne, dry skin, pigmentation, or redness, a facial is always catered to focus on your specific skin needs. For example: if your skin is prone to hyperpigmentation and discoloration, your esthetician will use brightening and lightening treatments. By using the right products and treatments, estheticians can change the skin to improve the appearance and achieve your best complexion.

10. Professional Advice:

  • When receiving a facial you are with your esthetician for at least an hour. Which allows the esthetician to give professional advice on skin tips and tricks that will help you care for your skin properly.  Your esthetician will recommend products for your skin type and how to properly maintain the results from your facial.

11. Because you deserve it!:  

  • A facial is just for you and will give you time to relax and clear your mind. Pamper yourself and your skin by scheduling a facial.
