Facials Q&A

What are facials?

Facials are often thought of as treatment that delivers outstanding relaxation. While there is no denying the relaxing elements of a professional facial, medical-grade facials also offer a wide range of skin benefits.

In the hands of skilled practitioners, facials can go a long way toward improving the look and feel of your skin. Best of all, they customize your experience to suit your specific needs. 

Facials can be designed to address the following conditions:

  • Signs of aging
  • Sun damage
  • Sensitive skin
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Oily, dry, or combination skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Clogged or enlarged pores

The facial process begins with a professional skin assessment and a discussion of your treatment goals.

What happens during facials?

Once you’re comfortably draped and reclined on the treatment table, your practitioner begins by cleansing your skin to remove all traces of makeup, skin care products, and debris. 

Exfoliation removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and impurities. Your practitioner may choose a physical exfoliant, which has a gritty texture to remove skin cells, or a chemical exfoliant, which uses a special solution to exfoliate your skin. 

Massage helps improve circulation throughout your face and helps reduce inflammation. Massage also helps skin products penetrate more deeply.

Your practitioner may apply special serums or masks to deliver top quality ingredients into your skin. Moisturizer is always part of the process, even if you have oily or breakout-prone skin. 

How does dermaplaning work during a facial?

Dermaplaning is a treatment that uses a scalpel to physically remove the outermost layer of skin. When incorporated into a facial, this approach takes the place of exfoliation products. 

Precise movements and pressure not only remove dead skin cells and other debris but also remove the fine hair that covers your face. Nothing matches the smooth, soft feel you get following dermaplaning.

HydraFacial® is another type of facial that uses a powered stream of water to cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish the skin. The process also infuses skin with specially designed serums. 

The Skintrinsiq® device from Obagi® uses advanced technology to lift the upper layers of your skin and extract impurities, which allows unique skin products to penetrate deeply.
