How Beneficial Are Facials?

October 1, 2020

Healthy skin is a reflection of overall wellness.

Facials are often looked at as a relaxing indulgence, a special treat. But our skin is the largest organ of the body and deserves to be pampered! Regular facials from a skilled and experienced Licensed Master Aesthetician, like Kaity Collins here at Fountain of You MD in Virginia Beach, can benefit the short-term and long-term health of your skin. Here’s how:

Stress can have an enormous impact on your overall well-being and your skin health. Stress is a negatively contributing factor to skin aging. Facials give you time to de-stress from everyday life, by reducing stress, anxiety, and tension. You’ll leave your facial appointment feeling happy and relaxed.

Those suffering from acne, breakouts, and blemishes understand how frustrating these skin concerns are. They can be painful and can negatively affect your self-confidence. Acne can pop up for a number of reasons: poor diet, hormonal imbalance, stress, hygiene issues, and sometimes the wrong skincare products. Regular facials cleanse and exfoliate your pores, helping your skin stay healthy and clear.

If you’re suffering from poor blood circulation, your skin may appear dull and pale due to lack of nutrients. Facial massages can help circulation improve by increasing your vascular function. A Healthy blood flow can instantly improve your skin.

When skin cells reach the top layer of the skin, they need to be removed so that your skin can absorb topical creams. Exfoliating your skin during a facial triggers cell turnover which helps keep your pores clear and clean. Dermaplaning and chemical peels are most often used by a Licensed Master Aesthetician during a facial.

Signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, are much more pronounced if your skin is not hydrated. Your body (especially your skin) needs water! Thorough hydration, through proper water intake and applying hydrating topicals, ensures moisture retention inside and out.

You and your skin deserve to relax. Regular professional facials will help you look good and feel better! Here at Fountain of You MD in Virginia Beach, our Licensed Master Aesthetician Kaity Collins will create a facial customized to your skin concerns and goals.
