With the beginning of fall upon us, it’s time to start upping your skincare game by scheduling routine professional facials. This is the first step in getting your skin ready for the colder and drier weather ahead. Because your face is exposed to the elements all day, every day it needs special care to repair the damage of summer before the harsh winter winds begin to blow, and the beginning of autumn is the time to start the process.
What Benefits Do Professional Spa Facials Offer?
When you think about relaxing in the salon while your esthetician pampers your skin with specialized professional products and treatment, it paints a very relaxing picture. Routine facials are certainly a great way to get away from the stress of the daily grind to relax and de-stress, but their benefits to your skin are incredible.
Cleansing- As important as your home skincare routine is, it simply can’t get your skin as clean as a professional facial can. The reason for this is that expert estheticians use salon-quality products and specialized tools and equipment that we don’t have access to at home.
Anti-Aging- It may seem too soon but you need to start thinking about anti-aging treatments to prevent premature aging as early as your 20s. This is the time when your skin’s rejuvenation processes begin to slow down, and this decline in skin renewal continues as you get older. However, regular routine facial treatments help slow this process down and stimulate the production of collagen and new skin cells to help keep the skin smooth, firm, and wrinkle-free.
Increased Circulation- Professional facial treatments may feel like a massage for your face, but they go far above making you feel good. This massaging action also stimulated the circulation of blood and lymph which is imperative for healthy skin. Blood delivers nutrients and oxygen to your skin cells and lymph carries away harmful toxins through your lymphatic system.
Fewer Breakouts- If your skin is acne prone a regular schedule of professional facial treatments may be exactly what you need to achieve greater skin clarity. Facial treatments are customized to meet your skin’s specific needs, so your esthetician will choose products, serums, and treatments that will address the cause of your breakouts to help keep acne at bay.
Exfoliation- Exfoliating scrubs away layers of dead skin buildup to reveal fresh new skin underneath. It also helps to remove dirt and grime trapped in your pores. The result is a glowing complexion and a smooth clean surface that allows for even makeup application. Exfoliating regularly also stimulates skin renewal for more supple and younger-looking skin.
Which Professional Facial Treatment Should I Choose?
At Helen’s Haven, we offer both spa and medical-grade facial treatments that can give your skin precisely what it needs to look younger and more beautiful. Because everyone’s skin care needs are so different, the best way to determine what professional facial treatments are right for you is to request a consultation with one of our licensed estheticians. They will evaluate your skin’s needs and concerns and recommend the best services to achieve the results you hope to achieve.
