What To Know Before You Get a Facial

Posted on February 23, 2023

When it comes to taking care of your skin, there’s no better way to pamper yourself than with a facial. Facials offer many benefits, such as helping to cleanse, exfoliate and nourish the skin, reducing wrinkles and fine lines, improving skin tone and texture, and delivering deep hydration. But before you book your next appointment at the spa or salon, there are a few things that you should know to get the most out of your facial.

Choose the Right Type of Facial for Your Skin

Different types of facials address different concerns, so selecting one that targets your specific needs is important. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, an acne-fighting facial can help reduce breakouts and clear up existing blemishes. On the other hand, if you have dry or aging skin, an anti-aging facial can help reduce wrinkles, firm up sagging skin, and improve overall texture. And if you want a luxurious beauty treatment, then an aromatherapy facial can provide deep relaxation along with nourishing ingredients that help to boost hydration levels. Whichever type of facial you choose, ensure that it’s appropriate for your particular skin type and concerns.

Have Realistic Expectations

While facials can offer amazing results when done correctly by professionals, it is important not to expect miracles overnight. Depending on what type of facial you get, results may not be visible right after treatment but rather days later once all the beneficial ingredients have been fully absorbed into the deeper layers of skin.  Remember that regular treatments combined with good skincare habits are key for achieving lasting results.

Make Sure All Products Are Safe For Use

Many salons and spas now offer organic and natural facials using only natural ingredients; however, it is still important for customers to ensure that all products used during their treatment are safe and suitable for use (especially if they have sensitive or reactive skin). It is always best practice to let your aesthetician known if you have any allergies, or if you have experienced reactions from certain skincare ingredients in the past.

Follow Post-Facial Instructions

After every facial, there should be certain instructions given for clients to get the maximum benefit from their session, such as avoiding direct sunlight exposure immediately afterward (so SPF application becomes essential) and using specific homecare products recommended by professionals (with additional advice on how often these should be applied) etc. Follow these guidelines to ensure progress during each session.
