Facials Q & A

What are facials?

Facials are gentle treatments for the skin using multiple steps to give your skin nutrients and hydration for peak health. Your provider at Aesthetic Labs can customize your procedure based on your most pressing skin concerns and your skin type, accommodating any sensitivity you may experience. 

Before a facial at Aesthetic Lab, your provider examines the health and wellness of your skin. They may ask about details regarding its sensitivity, dryness, oiliness, and other indications of your skin type. Then, they can plan your facial using steps to meet your skin’s specific needs. 

Depending on the steps you include in your procedure, you can get facials as often as once a month at Aesthetic Lab. Your provider gives you additional instructions to follow at home to help you maintain the results for as long as possible. 

What happens during a facial?

The steps of a facial, and the ingredients you use, can vary based on the results of your initial skin assessment. Generally, facials involve actions such as:

Cleansing

Your provider cleanses your skin using a high-end cleanser appropriate for your skin type. They ensure the products they use won’t result in any additional dryness or irritation. 

Moisturization

Your provider nourishes and moisturizes your skin using a personalized combination of products and ingredients. 

Steaming

Steaming helps open up the pores, making them more receptive to the nutrients they get throughout a facial. 

Extractions

Extraction is the process of manually clearing the pores of built-up dirt and dead skin cells. 

Massage

A facial massage not only helps the muscles in your face relax but can also improve lymphatic drainage. 

What are the benefits of a facial?

A custom facial offers considerable benefits for your skin’s health, texture, and appearance. You can get them regularly at Aesthetic Lab if you find them relaxing or advantageous for the quality of your skin. 

Compared to other treatments for skin wellness, facials are pleasantly mild and gentle. They can result in:

  • Less acne and oiliness
  • Improved hydration
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Less irritation
  • Unclogged pores
  • Softer skin
  • Less skin sensitivity

Facials are beneficial year-round, but you may find them to be especially rewarding during colder months of the year when your skin is at its peak dryness. During these times, skin irritation and flaking can increase.
