Get a professional facial at least once a month for the best skin care results

The Importance of Facials and Skin Care - Skin Center of South Miami

Visit a skincare professional regularly for these 5 reasons

Professional facials are unmatched for their benefits to the skin. It’s important to take care of your skin at home – cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize. At least once a month, a professional facial can completely revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, leaving you with that coveted glow. Despite how good your daily Image Skincare routine may be, a professional can help you achieve a more radiant complexion. It may be time to reconsider a facial if you haven’t had one before, or if you only get one once or twice a year. Here are a few reasons.

The first. Treatments for the body

Skin cell turnover occurs approximately every 28 days, which is why aestheticians and dermatologists recommend getting a professional facial once a month. [1] This applies to body treatments as well. You cannot do an adequate job on your body yourself. With a professional treatment, your skin will be buffed, completely exfoliated, free of dead skin cells, bumps, and rough texture will be finely refined and softened. Additionally, body treatments can be used to treat acne on the back. This concern can be addressed using, for instance, the Purifying Back Treatment. Salicylic acid, coupled with fruit enzymes, exfoliates the skin and reduces blemishes’ appearance and quantity. Beta hydroxy acids, such as salicylic acid, exfoliate as well as possess antibacterial properties that can diminish the appearance of breakouts.


2. Increasing the concentration of ingredients

Despite the fact that over-the-counter skincare products can be effective, they do not possess the same potency as spa treatments. While you can find tons of glycolic acid and salicylic acid products online or at your local drugstore, they’ll generally be much less powerful and effective than the ones dermatologists and estheticians use on your skin during monthly facial treatments. As a chemical exfoliant and an alpha hydroxy acid, glycolic acid has many benefits, including promoting collagen production in skin that lacks it, improving overall tone, reducing hyperpigmentation and even reducing the appearance of acne.

Three. Reductions

The removal of blackheads and whiteheads should only be handled by professionals, as doing so may result in very stubborn scarring. Blackheads/whiteheads will be fully removed by professionals without leaving any scars. Extractions shouldn’t be done too often – once or twice a month should be enough to keep skin clear. 

Four. Complete customizability

Due to the special tools they use, professionals can see much more closely into your skin than you can on your own. Your skincare treatment will be customized to address your skin concerns as a result. Different treatments are best for each individual’s skin. If you choose products or ingredients without a professional’s input, you may choose products or ingredients that aren’t as effective (or at what concentrations or combinations).



The Fifth. Maintaining

Maintaining your skin with monthly facials means that your skin will look good consistently, which is one of the best things about them. You are more likely to have fewer blemishes if you regularly suffer from breakouts. The treatment will also moisturize your skin thoroughly, helping to make fine lines or wrinkles less noticeable. With regular exfoliation, you will likely have a luminous glow that cannot be achieved by at-home exfoliation. Not to mention, blackheads will be much less of an issue, and congested skin won’t be as problematic. There are generally fewer blackheads when there are fewer breakouts, because pimples form when blackheads become infected.
