The general recommendation is for a facial every three to four weeks or once a month. That’s how long your skin’s life cycle is. After three or four weeks, your skin cells grow back. Facials help this process and assure your skin always glows.

There’s no need – you can show up to your facial treatment with your makeup still on since your esthetician will just remove it all during the cleansing portion of the facial treatment. The cleansing portion of the facial occurs even if you aren’t wearing makeup, so arriving with makeup on won’t take away any time from the treatment.

Do Not shower or steam after a treatment. You’ll undo the benefits of essential oils used in a massage or serums and lotions applied during a facial. Do Not shave before a facial since it will make the skin too sensitive.

The exfoliation that took place during your facial brought the under layers of your skin to the surface, possibly making your skin more sensitive. So, trust the power of the work your facialist did and try to avoid using harsh products at home for 2-3 days after a facial.

The most common side effects of the facial are redness and blotchy skin due to the pressure of exfoliation and extraction. Avoid wearing makeup or using any of the products on your skin during the day or two that follow your face to give your skin time to heal.

What’s more, despite their variety, which can include prescription, deep-cleansing, nourishing, brightening, and anti-aging, most full facials will usually last between only 60 and 90 minutes with a taster or express facials lasting about 30 minutes.

Immediately following a facial, it’s probably best to stay away from your makeup (at least for 24 hours).

Getting a facial once a month is a great supplement to your skincare routine. Just like any part of your skincare regimen, facials are best when they’re done consistently and regularly. Facials allow your skin to look and feel its best! There are numerous benefits of monthly facials, both external and internal.

Facial Treatments are typically some of the most tranquil skin-care treatments out there (yes, even when extractions are involved). What’s more: They can happen to anyone, regardless of skin type.

Why do some people break out directly following a facial? During a facial, skin is well stimulated and much of what’s below the surface is encouraged to come up and out. If extractions are not done well then pores and pimples may have leftover debris that comes to a head in the following days.

A really good facial clears out your pores and tightens your skin. This reduces wrinkles, and often removes them completely, making you look much younger in the process. And if you’re someone who wears a lot of makeup, it’s a good idea to get a facial every so often to help keep your skin and your pores clean.

Some advocates of natural healing suggest replacing the water in your ice cubes with other ingredients, such as aloe vera and green tea. Anecdotal evidence suggests that ice cubes made with these ingredients can fine-tune the facial treatment for specific conditions.

Avoid exposing your skin directly to the sun for at least a week after the facial. Sun exposure can irritate the skin. On the day of your treatment, it might be beneficial to wear a hat to keep the sun off your face. Wear sunscreen daily.

Facials can help with acne breakouts, depending on the kind you have and how severe they are. In general, facials are suitable for mild breakouts rather than severe ones. You can have facials done to remove whiteheads and blackheads.

Currently, two of the best facials for anti-aging are platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and microneedling. In a microneedling facial, tiny needles penetrate the skin to boost collagen production. The process can be paired with PRP therapy using your own blood — hence its nickname, the “vampire facial.”

  • Facial Treatments ARE Beneficial, Even for Those Without a Skin Complaint. Facials will cleanse your skin from pollutants, which will help to rejuvenate it and improve its texture and tone.
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Laser Skin Resurfacing
  • Chemical Peels
  • Laser Skin Rejuvenation
  • ENVY Facial
  • HydraFacial
  • Fraxel Skin Resurfacing

An anti-aging facial is a type of facial that is targeted at improving the appearance of mature skin. Like a regular facial, an anti-aging facial usually consists of multiple steps such as cleansing, exfoliation, and facial masking. With age, the skin loses both collagen and elastin.

    5 star review  The office staff is super accommodating and helpful, and Dr. Tuggle and Tonya Tuggle are both wonderful at what they do. I have had multiple procedures/treatments here over the years and highly recommend them. I never feel uncomfortable or judged, which is huge when deciding on cosmetic procedures. I also never felt pressured into anything and always felt informed about all of my decisions. They have great seasonal specials on fillers, etc!

    5 star review  Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!
