Your skin will change.
Yes it will!! Every 4-6 weeks but if time and budget allow more frequent visits, DO IT. Deep wrinkles become fine lines. Damage and hyperpigmentation disappear. Skin sensitivities and rosacea decrease. By month 3 your skin is plump, glowing and healthy on a regular basis. Of course, a good home regimen makes a difference but regular facials take it to the next level.
Spend time on YOU.
AIN’T NOBODY GONNA LOVE YOU LIKE YOU CAN. Self-care is important! Stress causes inflammation, everyone knows that. Inflammation is the body’s attempt to protect itself and it’s linked to disease when unmanaged. Even constant low-grade inflammation destroys the balance within your body over time. Controlling your stress levels and taking care of yourself not only helps fight inflammatory diseases but wrinkles, sagging skin, acne, and rosacea too! Taking time for yourself with facials is about more than just vanity and looking good, it’s about a balanced, healthy lifestyle. Think of your monthly visit as a holistic approach to wellness, improving your quality of life by managing stress and calming your mind & body.
You can’t DIY everything.
You’ll never hear an esthetician say “I don’t need a facial, I can do that at home!” Instead, you’ll hear them whine about how giving yourself a facial is totally not the same. Your go-to DIY facial should be your daily routine, for the most part. Slapping on a mask and layering on a few extra products isn’t a facial, and you shouldn’t be doing it once a week. Your DIY facial is what we call maintenance. Most professional skincare lines use concentrated products with higher percentages of active ingredients. Estheticians are trained on massage techniques to get blood and lymph moving, draining toxins, lifting, toning and relaxing facial muscles. Then there’s the special tools and equipment used to maximize results. After one facial you might think you can get the same results at home but really, you can’t. The long-term benefits of a professional experience outweigh your DIY routine.
Pro advice about your skin.
Skin changes often. One month your skin might be acting one way, another month it’s completely different. If you aren’t in tune with your skin you may not even notice. Age, weather, hormones, lifestyle all play a role in your skin health.
