What Are the Different Types of Facial Treatments?

Choosing the right facial can be confusing, but there are some key things to look for when finding the perfect type of facial for your skin type and skin concerns. Facials have many benefits that include helping you to relax, removing dead skin cells, reducing the signs of aging, increasing your blood flow, and treating acne. Facials also remove dead skin cells which helps reveal younger, brighter skin.

How Do I Pick the Right Type of Facial?

Take a look at your skin type to help determine which facial will be right for you. Facials can be customized to fit your skin, so be sure to talk to your skin care professional, and let them know any concerns or areas you want to focus on during your treatment. If you are prone to breakouts, then a facial that helps with acne would be the right one for you. If you are dry, then a facial that helps boost hydration could be right for you. Our team can take a look at your skin and determine what facial would work best depending on your skin type and your skin goals.

Normal Skin

If you have normal to dry skin choosing a facial that deep cleans your skin, removes dead skin cells, and hydrates is a great option.

Combination Skin (normal to dry, and oily)

For combination skin that is oily and also normal to dry in certain areas, choose a facial that will help balance out the oil production in the skin to prevent acne breakouts, but also help moisturize where you are dry.

Sensitive Skin

If you have sensitive skin, choose a soothing facial that does not overly exfoliate your skin. This could cause irritation, and with sensitive skin you want to hydrate the skin and make sure your facial is gentle and calming.

Oily Skin

For oily skin choose a facial that deep cleans and helps to extract and balance the excess oil to shrink your pores. This will help your skin look hydrated, balanced, and healthy.

What Are The Most Common Types of Facial Treatments Available?

Classic Facial

This is the most common type of facial available, and caters more to people with normal to dry skin but can be customized to all skin types. Classic facials help to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize, to reveal glowing and younger looking skin. Depending on your skin type we will determine which products are used. These facials are perfect for any season, and for anyone who is looking for a good general facial to get pampered and keep your skin looking healthy, glowing, and beautiful.

Anti-Aging Facial

Anti-aging facials are perfect for those that want to battle the signs of aging, and are great for all skin types. Typically, people that schedule this type of facial are over the age of 30. Anti-aging facials usually focus on plumping fine lines and wrinkles and exfoliating dead skin cells which can make the skin appear dull. Anti-aging facials can be done regularly to help achieve optimal results. Our team can help you decide on the frequency, and develop a customized facial schedule that works best for you.

Aromatherapy Facial

This type of facial uses oils to help treat and rejuvenate the skin. Aromatherapy facials are relaxing, stimulate cell regeneration, and moisturize. This type of facial is great for normal to dry skin and can be done at any time of the year.

Brightening Facial

If you have hyperpigmentation from acne scars, sun damaged, or dull skin, this type of facial can help target hyperpigmentation, brighten, and even out your skin tone. This facial uses antioxidants and brightening ingredients to help treat pigmentation spots and remove any dead skin cells. The brightening facial will reveal radiant and glowing skin.

LED Facial with Color Light Therapy

Facials with light therapy use a facial device that emits different wavelengths of LED light. This can help with breakouts and can treat acne. The process is pain-free, and can stimulate cell growth, boost collagen, reduce inflammation and redness, and improve the look of your skin. Additional benefits include minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and treating sun damage. There is no downtime with this type of facial, and patients can return to their normal activities directly afterwards.
