Facials are a classic relaxing experience that many of our patients enjoy as a treat. However, when facials are done consistently, they can give you and your skin a multitude of benefits. Dr. Fee and his team of expert medical professionals wanted to share with you their top five benefits associated with getting regular facial treatments.
1. Extraction Cleans the Skin
A basic part of most facials includes extraction. Extraction is a process in which clogged pores are cleared under a magnifying lamp either manually or with a tool. Extracting deep blackheads or pimples helps to clean the deeper layers of the skin. A common misconception is that blackheads are caused by the dirt under the skin when in reality it’s a mix of excess oil and dead skin cells that oxidize when exposed to air. Clearing out these excess oils and cells regularly allows you to have cleaner, clearer, healthier skin.
2. Promotes Blood Flow
People don’t often realize the internal benefits that a facial brings. The typical facial usually involves some type of facial massage. Massaging areas in the face helps to improve blood circulation. This improved blood circulation is critical to improved skin health, as it allows your cells the opportunity to get more oxygen and nutrients that are housed in the blood. This relates to higher cell turnover and a healthier overall glow!
3. Reduces Stress
Along with all of the physical benefits that go along with getting regular facials, many patients come in for patients to improve their mental state. According to studies published in the Biomedical Research journal, facial massages stimulate your sympathetic nervous system and helps reduce your anxiety levels. This is done by activating the pressure points in your face, causing a physical and emotional response resulting in an uplifted mood.
4. Exfoliates Dead Skin Cells
Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered why your skin looked so dull? A less than bright complexion is often caused by a buildup or layer of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. While you may spend time exfoliating at home, no over-the-counter products can ever match the results that a professional exfoliation provides. Exfoliating your skin regularly helps ensure your skin is always healthy and refreshed.
5. Improves Under Eye Bags
The skin under the eyes is very delicate, and because it’s thinner than the rest of the skin on your face, it needs to be treated very carefully. Neglecting the skin under your eyes can lead to puffy under-eye bags, dark circles, and dreaded crow’s feet. Thankfully, our expert aestheticians know exactly how to keep your under-eyes looking healthy and alert. Our special medical-grade creams and serums are packed with nutrients and anti-aging properties and designed specifically to treat your most delicate skin.
