If you’ve ever received a facial, you know how heavenly they can feel on the skin. The deep cleansing, the exfoliation, the blissful hydration– who wouldn’t want to experience that? In addition to feeling good, regular facials can also provide long-term skincare benefits for those with various skin types like normal, dry, oily or problematic skin. Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery has performed many facials and we want patients to understand why consistent facials should be made a priority in their skincare regimen.
The Right Tools & Products Mean Everything
Let’s start with the tools. A licensed aesthetician has professional tools only available to him/her and other licensed professionals within the industry. It’s safe to assume you may never be able to find an over-the-counter tool that works as well as a professional one, especially tools like crystal or diamond-tip microdermabrasion. Both are incredibly powerful when it comes to sloughing away dead skin cells and do so without damaging or irritating the skin. Other tools like steam generators and high-quality, potent skincare chemicals and creams are usually only available to licensed professionals and are not sold commercially. These tools work much harder and much better at removing gunk, dirt and oil from the skin’s pores, so it’s important you see a professional for clearer skin!
There’s No Guessing Game With Products & Services
A licensed aesthetician is licensed for a reason! They’ve received the necessary training and knowledge to tend to your skin. So if you’ve ever found yourself becoming frustrated at all the different claims beauty companies shove down your throat, you can relax knowing a licensed professional is here to take care of your skincare needs and concerns. Moreover, when you find an aesthetician who gets to know you on a personal level, you can feel comfortable discussing problems that arise over time. Like, when your skin get drier in the winter time and oilier in the summer— you can apply facial creams and products to squash these concerns.
Final Facial Tips
Lastly, receiving regular facials can prevent current skin concerns from happening over and over again. For example, if you are constantly getting blackheads, a monthly facial can effectively remove them and keep them from coming back. Also, there are things to keep in mind when considering making facials a part of your routine: 1) when we say “regular” we mean once every one or two months 2) you should schedule facials and other procedures days before big events—your skin can become puffy and red and may need extra time to heal 3) also go to a licensed professional with lots of experience– newly licensed aestheticians may not have as much knowledge or experience under their belt which can cause problems down the road.
