A facial can shrink the size of your pores, reduce the amount of oil on your skin, reduce hyperpigmentation, balance your skin’s pH, and give you the beautiful, clear skin you desire. What more could you ask for? Schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrews, and we’ll customize a facial for your needs.

What is a Facial?

A facial can be incredibly relaxing, but it’s a whole lot more than just that. It can improve the look and feel of your skin with one simple treatment. By cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing the skin, we can help you reveal beautiful, healthy skin while you relax.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Facial?

Almost everyone is a good candidate for a facial. The only people who may not be a good candidate for a facial is anyone with severe active acne, a sunburn, or on certain medications that cause skin sensitivity. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding should talk to your provider before considering a facial.

If you’ve recently had other skin treatments, you’ll want to talk to your provider to see if a facial is safe for your skin. Some skin treatments are not compatible with facials.

The Facial Procedure

The whole facial procedure is relatively simple, but it provides outstanding results. It starts by ensuring you’re comfortable. Next, your provider will use a special cleanser. The cleanser will be massaged into your skin to clean your skin and ensure any excess dirt and oil is removed. 

Exfoliation is the next step. A gentle exfoliant or facial scrub will be used to remove dead skin cells and other impurities. Once the exfoliant is worked over your skin, it will be washed off and your specialist will prepare you for the extraction process. 

To extract skin impurities like mild acne, blackheads, and whiteheads, your specialist will use their hands to gently massage your skin. Finally, your skin will be moisturized with serums and moisturizers to ensure optimal hydration and skin health.

Facial Aftercare

There is no downtime with a facial, but there are a few things you can do afterward to ensure you see the best results. You’ll want to avoid picking at your skin. Also, make sure to be gentle when washing your skin or applying skincare products, and avoid makeup for the first 24 hours. You also want to stay out of the sun and wear sunscreen to ensure ultimate skin protection.
