How Do You Choose the Best Facial For Your Skin?


Visitors: 160

With so many skin treatment options available today, how do you choose the best solution to meet your needs? Can't get ahead of your acne problem? Do you have a ruddy complexion that needs a lift? How about getting rid of wrinkles without injections? Read on to match the right solution for your exact skin care needs.

A spa facial is designed to deeply cleanse the skin by exfoliating dead skin cells with the primary goal being to maintain smooth, clear, well hydrated skin. Skin texture improves through massage, steam, extractions, and an application of custom blended products specifically formulated to achieve the results you desire. A facial involves a few basic steps including cleansing, exfoliation, massage, extraction of blackheads and other impurities, and application of products targeted to your skin type with the most important procedure being the skin analysis performed by a licensed esthetician who can help identify and correct certain conditions.

The spa facial is generally very relaxing and performed while inclined on a padded table with soft music, candlelight, and other additional amenities to make the experience enjoyable. As life's stressors can visibly result in skin problems, regular spa facials are a proven affective solution to maintain a healthy, glowing complexion.

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that mechanically exfoliates the top layer of the skin, reducing the appearance of aged, thickened, and congested skin while encouraging the growth of new softer, suppler skin. Unlike treatments that utilize exfoliating chemicals, resurfacing lasers or pulsed light, this procedure can benefit all clients regardless of skin type or ethnicity. It's perfect for individuals looking for safe, effective ways to reduce fine lines, acne scars, pigment discoloration, and pore size as well as to improve overall skin texture and radiance. The vacuum stimulation which occurs during the procedure is also effective in stimulating blood circulation and new collagen production.

The microdermabrasion procedure is mildly uncomfortable (it has been compared to gently swiping a piece of sandpaper across the skin) but is immediately followed by a calming application of product to reduce redness and relax the skin. The procedure can be performed on the face, neck or décolleté depending upon the individual's needs and it's highly recommended that the procedure be performed in a series to achieve maximum long-term results.

An oxygen skin care treatment system is uniquely designed to cleanse, nourish and revitalize every skin cell through its revolutionary use of the pure oxygen molecule. Both corrective and preventative results are achieved especially when it comes to reducing the effects of aging caused by the sun, free radical damage, and exposure to pollutants. By targeting the deep dermal layer of the skin where new cells form and eventually rise to the surface, the oxygen skin care treatment places over 180,000,000 oxygen molecules per second into this critical area. Here, the oxygen molecules attach themselves to the red blood cells as well as the collagen and elastin fibers to stimulate production of healthy new cells and to increase the strength and suppleness of the skin.

To help choose the best skin care treatment for your skin type, consult with a licensed esthetician who can perform a high-tech evaluation of your skin texture and recommend a personalized treatment to achieve maximum results.
