It seems as if no matter how hard you try or how many skincare products you put on, you would still have blotchiness, little acne bumps here and there, or a patch of wrinkles on one side more than the other. How is this possible when you’ve just spent $100 or so on a facial?
Sometimes it takes the right mixture of all the facial elements to get it just right for your skin type. You’re bound to have a more pleasant experience, if only your Esthetician had the right tools.
6 Best Parts of a Successful Skincare Treatment
The suggested route for the most positive skincare spa experience is as follows:
- Understand the steps involved in your facial
- Get a massage
- Get an extraction and exfoliation
- Get a light therapy treatment
- Seal the deal with the right serums
- Be sure to get well protected
You may not know what a hydro facial or microdermabrasion are, but it’s always best to be informed, in case you know your skin may be too sensitive to handle either one.
Most skin care specialists understand the importance of getting their clients into a relaxed state. Ask if you’re going to get a neck massage. Relaxation is great for your heart and overall well-being. It makes a facial completely worth it!
Extractions are good for removing blackheads and deep down dirt, while an exfoliation helps to scrape off the top layer of the skin, helping product penetration much more effective! Keeping your skin clean and clear helps keep it away from acne, wrinkles, and on its way to healthy-looking skin.
A light therapy treatment can enhance the main purpose of a facial. Whether you’re at a spa to reduce acne, anti-aging purposes, or a nice cleanse, any treatment will be seen to take effect much faster, for a longer period of time.
The extra 20 minutes or so under light therapy will not only help to boost your skin’s healing process, but it can serve to help relax you even more. Ask your skin care specialist to play your favorite music or bring your own!
You can’t have a microdermabrasion without applying a good, strong serum to keep your skin moist and smooth. Otherwise, it can feel a lot like you’ve just put paste on your face.
Hopefully, your Esthetician has an Altair Instruments’ microdermabrasion system. With it, their ultra powerful deep hydration hydroserum can penetrate even deeper into the skin, helping to produce the exact results it’s meant to.
Don’t leave without making sure your Esthetician applied a good broad spectrum sunscreen on you! Remember that a microdermabrasion and extractions just exposed your new skin. So don’t wear it out too quickly by immediately exposing it to harmful ultraviolet radiation.
