Why Facials Are Great for Your Skin March 5, 2020Cosmetic Treatments, Facialsaesthetician, facials, skin rejuvenationWestern Dermatology Consultants Maintaining the beauty and health of your skin requires good lifelong habits, including a basic daily care routine. Want help with developing the ideal regimen for your skin type and goals? The best way to have your skin properly assessed and understand your unique needs is by seeing a reputable, board-certified-dermatologist-led team. At Albuquerque’s Western Dermatology Consultants, the Spa @ WDC involves dermatologists, nurses, licensed aestheticians, and more working together to recommend treatments and products in plans custom designed to promote skin health and beauty. Because it can be difficult to fully remove dirt, dead skin, and bacteria from your skin on your own with at-home treatments, facials are one of the most popular skin rejuvenation approaches available at the Spa @ WDC. Our team believes that facials can be an important element of any self-care plan, since they’re beneficial for both women and men who want to go beyond mild, drugstore cleansers and exfoliation for more complete skin rejuvenation. Facials are especially ideal for people who want results, but who are not ready for microdermabrasion or injectables. A standard facial consists of a series of steps performed by a skin expert. These steps may include steam, exfoliation, creams, masks, massages, and other techniques to open pores, remove debris, and nourish and clean the skin. In addition to creating a more even tone and complexion, facials can also make your skin look refreshed and younger without the need for more dramatic cosmetic therapies. Facials address a variety of concerns, including everything from pimples, blemishes, and blackheads, to dullness and flaky skin. Another major benefit to facials is that they can help you to understand more about your skin type. Your aesthetician will first perform a skin analysis on you to identify your skin type, which may be dry, oily, combination, sensitive, or normal. The analysis can also reveal any conditions that should be addressed. Your aesthetician will give you expert advice, recommend products to use at home, and explain how to care for your skin after a facial. Some people prefer to have a facial on a monthly basis, while others choose it less often. The treatments can be customized depending on your specific needs and wants. For example, someone in their 20s may want a general “freshening up,” while a person in their 40s or 50s may want more of a rejuvenating effect.
