Is A Professional Facial Worth It?

Between articles and the internet, there is no lack of information about skincare right now, but no matter how attentive, experienced and well-researched you are at maintaining your face, you will never be as capable as someone that does it for a living.

We are all for DIY facials, cucumbers on the eyes and a great skincare routine that helps keep your skin happy and healthy, but anyone who has more serious skin issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation (dark spots), or fine lines and wrinkles will definitely see a positive effect from a professional facial.

Still not convinced? Here are a few more reasons why you should have a professional facial:

A Clean Slate

Even if your facialist isn’t using high-tech techniques such as lasers or chemical peels, a professional treatment will fully cleanse your skin in ways you can’t at home, including some form of high-grade exfoliation, removing a layer of dead cells from your face to leave you looking refreshed and suddenly younger. How could that ever be a bad thing?

The Right Tools

You will never have the right products at home to get a professional effect. We utilise light therapy, using blue and red LED, to eradicate the bacteria that cause inflammation during breakouts. It’s also been proven to reduce pore size, stabilize oil production, and promote healthy cell growth.

Knowledge is Power

Not sure why your skin has been looking weird lately? Your skin changes over time depending on age, weather, and even hormones. It’s a good idea to have an expert who can help you address those changes, identify skin conditions, and educate you on how to treat them so that you don’t have to wait till your next appointment for relief.

Personal Skin Recommendations

Following a skin assessment, your knowledgeable facialist will provide personalized skin recommendations and a regimen that will address your individual concerns. The best way to know your skin is to examine it, cleanse it, treat it, and then assess it. Once you’re on a great regimen, the esthetician will update it by season. It’s like having your own concierge!
