As you know, where you get your facials matters. At SpaForever in Chicago, IL, we offer facials that can help remove acne and fight wrinkles as well as hydrate, moisturize, rejuvenate, tighten and refresh the complexion. Not only do your skin type and choice of facial have to agree, you must have realistic expectations about our facials. So what should you know?
The major benefit of facials is moisturizing the skin (for a potent removal of dead skin cells, try microdermabrasion instead). The moisturizing benefit of facials is not to be understated. By keeping the skin hydrated, you can prevent more pernicious fine lines and wrinkles from showing. It makes sense that skin that is dry and cracked is vulnerable to wrinkles. Plus, facials containing well-studied antioxidants can help the skin do its job of keeping the skin’s moisture barrier functioning properly.
If you want to temporarily improve the appearance of skin, facials are spot-on. Improved skin tone and texture can even last a few days to a few weeks. But for longer-term cosmetic procedures, chemical peels, IPL photofacials and collagen therapy may help. We offer plenty of services that can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
However, it would be remiss not to mention the debate on the benefits of facials, which has been going on for quite some time. Some dermatologists recommend getting routine facials from a trained esthetician in order to keep skin glowing and clear, while others say they hardly do much. Extractions, when performed gently to avoid scarring, can help clear acne and promote better skin. Plus, facials increase circulation through massage of the underlying facial muscles. Depending on your facial type, a mask can help to purify, hydrate or calm your skin. To decisively claim they are not worth the investment is spurious.
The most understated benefit, perhaps, is the stress release factor. Facials are incredibly relaxing and can promote more mindfulness and self-care beyond the spa. The positive secondary effects of better stress management are numerous.
Not only that, our skilled aestheticians can bring you awareness on the importance of treating your skin well. Whether they identify a skin concern specific to your type, recommend products based on a skin assessment, or share feedback from delivering hundreds of facials Chicago, our aestheticians provide the outside perspective necessary to boost your skin care regimen.
Every facial is different, but here are a sample of steps involved in a typical facial:
