Skin Care – FAQ

Frequently asked questions about skincare:
What are the benefits of facial?

A facial is more than a luxury – it’s hygiene for the skin. To maintain healthy skin you have to keep it in shape – and the best way to do that is by seeking the help of a skin-care professional who can plan your skin’s workouts, exercise it on a regular basis, guide its nutrition and push it to get the results you desire.

A facial can offer many benefits: facials offer you the opportunity to work with a professional skin care specialist who will analyze your skin, help you improve your complexion and show you how to take proper care of your skin. A facial can give you a deep cleansing, deeper than the cleansing you will get at home.

What happens during a facial?

A facial includes cleansing as well as exfoliation, which can help unclog your pores. Some facials include extracting open comedones will also help rid the skin of acne. Your skin care specialist will help soften the skin with steam, hot moist towels, and enzymes or other exfoliants. A skin care specialist (esthetician) will choose the ingredients to help your skin type. The esthetician may choose a mask to detoxify, calm, energize, tone, lift or hydrate your skin. By getting a proper analysis, you will not only learn your skin type and condition, but an esthetician will be able to create a facial experience that addresses your skin’s individual needs.

A facial helps increase circulation and stimulates the skin. It can also help slow down premature aging by custom-targeting your skin care. Facials are a great preventative treatment to help you beat wrinkles before they occur. Keeping your skin hydrated will help keep the skin moist and stop dehydration

What type of facial is best for me?

A facial should be customized to your needs, and that’s best decided during the consultation. What works well at one visit may not be appropriate the next time around. For example, skin has a tendency to change every season. Other factors like nutrition, medical conditions and medications, environmental damage, stress, changes in hormonal level (pregnancy, breastfeeding, menopause, birth control peels, physical activity, and fluid intake) have a large impact on the current skin condition.

How often should I have a facial?

A facial is recommended every 3-6 weeks; by means of this frequency, we monitor your skin throughout the seasons and help you maintain a healthy and glowing complexion. However, if you are experiencing unusual stress or menopause, your skin can be unpredictable and experience breakouts; in that case your esthetician may recommend more frequent visits until the problem is under control.

What’s the best way to prolong the results of my facial?

Its recommended being diligent with your home-care program, like cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and protecting. This will help your skin function properly and look its absolute best.

As part of your skincare treatment, Carey may suggest a PCA Peel or PCA Peel Alternative. Peels are an excellent choice for many skin conditions. Peels dissolve away dead skin cells and the encourage the generation of new skin, thus eliminating fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation, uneven tone, dryness, acne and a host of other mild skin conditions. Depending on your particular skin concerns and conditions, Carey will select the appropriate PCA Peel for you. PCA Peels range from superficial to medium depth.
