Importance of regular facials
The epidermis (top layer of the skin) renews itself every 6-7 weeks. Factors such as improper skin care or age can slow this renewal process down. By getting regular facials, you can speed up this process and reveal fresher, younger skin quicker and more regularly.
Think of it as changing the oil in your car. It needs a tune up every 3-4 months, as your skin does every 6-7 weeks
Skin Treatment Aftercare
You have invested time and money for us to treat your skin– so it makes sense to continue to care for your skin after your treatment.
Your skin has been resurfaced, so it’s important to treat it carefully in order to maintain results and keep your skin healthy. Therefore, after your treatment, please avoid the following:
* Heavy makeup immediately after and up to 4 hours post treatment. Your pores are open and applying makeup can clog them leading to further breakouts.
* Over cleansing, exfoliating and use of harsh toners or heavy creams. Instead, use a soap free cleanser and light to medium weight moisturizer.
* Scrubs and other exfoliants with BHA, AHA, or any retinol-based products for 48 hours to prevent redness and irritation.
* Sun exposure. UV rays can cause sunburn, especially after a facial as your skin been resurfaced. It is very important to use a minimum of SPF 30 and reapply every 80 minutes if you are outdoors.
Please do not hesitate to call us with any questions before or after your skin care treatment. We thank you for trusting us with your skin care needs!
