What to Expect From Your First Facial (Besides Healthy Skin, Of Course!)

Our skin is a little bit like our personalities: quirky, unique, and totally our own! Whether you have skin that gets dry patches, oil you can’t control, or breakouts that seem to come from nowhere, there’s a facial meant just for you and an esthetician waiting to help! Skincare can be complicated, and there’s no reason you should have to figure it out alone. The benefits of regular facials are endless, and if you’re looking for a nudge to book your first appointment, consider this your all-inclusive guide.  

What Are the Benefits of Regular Facials? 

Regular facials are like the secret tool in your skincare toolbox. Even if you don’t have hyper-pigmentation, acne, dryness, scarring, or other common skin issues, regular facials are the key to preventing any future skin problems. Here are a few benefits of regular facials: 

1. Relieving Stress 

A facial treatment is a beautiful hour in which you can forget your to-do list and your worries and let someone else do the work for you. Inhale, exhale, and let us do the rest. 

2. Increasing Blood Circulation 

There are so many benefits to be gained from increasing the circulation to your face. Above all, an hour’s worth of treatment brings powerful healing blood cells to treat your skin from the inside out! 

3. Treating Specific Skin Problems 

Do you have a history of acne, scarring, or under-eye bags? Do you want softer skin, to prevent aging, or to brighten your complexion? No matter what your needs are, there is facial treatment that’s just right for you. 

4. No More Guessing! Let an Expert Help 

Your licensed esthetician has a wealth of knowledge about all of your skin’s issue, and they are available to address them! If you have tried everything, and it’s your best guess in regard to what actually improves your skin, getting a facial will help enable you to create a better skincare routine. 

What Should I Expect the First Time Around? 

It’s the big day! Your first facial is exciting. Get ready for a relaxing hour spent getting pampered. Here’s what you should know to be prepared for your first facial: 

1. Get tips from your esthetician 

If you’re unsure of what kind of treatment would be best suited for you, give us a call and we’ll be able to give you a better idea.  

2. Show up with a bare face.  

Avoid applying products or makeup before going in for your facial. Some products can cause increased irritation during a facial, and the time spent removing makeup could be better spent on getting an extraction or receiving a facial massage!  

3. A little discomfort is normal  

Facial treatments are like a skincare boot camp. From exfoliation to extractions, there are going to be some unfamiliar sensations, and it’s normal for you to feel a bit of discomfort. If your discomfort is extreme, however, always speak up! Don’t worry – it’s all worth it. 

4. Take care of your skin afterwards 

Just like after the dentist cleans your teeth, it’s important to take proper care of your skin after you receive a facial treatment. Use the correct cleanser and moisturizer for your skin type and the season to effectively prolong the amazing effects of your facial treatment. 

How Often Should You Get Facials to Experience Benefits? 

To experience the full benefits that facials can offer for your skin, you should get a facial treatment at least once a month (and a maximum of twice a month). In between treatments, make sure to take good care of your skin to help make the benefits last.
