Facial Benefits

When was the last time you treated yourself to a spa facial? A facial is a great way to treat your skin. Getting facials will help you
achieve a clear complexion and a nice glow.  A facial can offer many benefits. The face is always subject to the elements such as the sun, maybe smoke or an improper at home regime.  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. A facial includes cleansing as well as exfoliation which can help to unclog your pores. 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 or esthetician will choose the ingredients to help your skin type. The esthetician may choose a mask to detoxify your skin or hydrate your skin. By getting a proper analysis you will not only learn your skin type, but an esthetician will be able to create a
facial experience that addresses your skin’s 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.  A facial may help you understand the proper skin care products for your skin. Most people are using the wrong products for their skin type;
this causes the skin to become sensitized. A good esthetician will work with you to create a home care regime that will be both easy to use and work with your individual skin type. Skin type is determined by pore size, tone, and texture. It is also  determined by oil production, called sebum. Most importantly a facial will relax you. A spa offers a serene environment that encourages stress reduction. Facials not only help your skin, but can be soothing. When you are comfortable with your skin, that confidence comes through in a natural glow. Many people have never experienced a facial. A facial makes a great gift for  someone you love. Facials are great for both men and women, and a facial is a great introduction to skin care for a teenager.

What are the medical benefits of a facial?

Facials are skin treatments for the face, generally given by licensed estheticians, that maintain and improve the quality of the skin.  Facials tend to include an analysis of the skin, followed by a series of cleansing methods of the skin, exfoliation, a facial massage, steam and a cream or moisturizer.  While facials have a variety of benefits for the skin on the face, there are also many health benefits as well. Read on to find out more about the health benefits of a facial.


  • According to the New Life Journal’s “A Facial it’s More Than Meets the Eye” by Julie Pagano, facials regulate the immune system, aid in detoxification, reduce the amount of fluid that has built up in the body, and aid in stress relief when it includes “aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage, exfoliation treatments and acupuncture.” Lymphatic drainage helps release toxins that have built up in the body.

Types: Benefits of Facial Massages in Facials

  • Facials typically involve massages. These massages aid in blood circulation. Massages during facials also help with lymphatic drainage, and aid in the relaxation of the facial muscles which can slow the onset of wrinkles in the face. Skin cells can also be renewed by using this technique, which can also reduce puffiness and sagging in the face.


  • When a person is struggling with acne, suffering from a dull complexion, or facing a superficial skin issue, regular facials can help fix these problems. Facials can give a person a clean and
    bright complexion, as well as remove dirt and blackheads. Paraffin facials which penetrate deep into the skin, have anti-aging benefits, too. Additionally, when a face mask is applied to the skin during a facial, it helps tone and clarify the skin.

Types of Facials and Benefits

  • There are a variety of facials that can provide many health benefits. Anti-oxidant facials contain free-radical fighting nutrients such as Vitamins A and E, which help remove pollutants from the body.  Collagen facials use warm vapor, deep pore cleansing, and lymphatic draining massages, which benefit the skin by preventing wrinkles, reducing dark circles and ridding the body of
    environmental toxins.
