What are the Benefits of Getting a Facial?
There are many benefits to getting a facial. It’s relaxing, cleansing and nourishing. Your skin may look better immediately after, and some skin concerns and complaints can be improved. Skin can look clearer and younger, and may feel smoother.
How Long do the Effects of a Facial Last?
The glowing skin you’ll see immediately after a facial should last around 48 - 72 hours. The long-term benefits can last up to 45 days, depending on your skin type, care routine after the facial, and other environmental factors.
How Often Should I Get a Facial?
The ideal frequency for a facial is 1 month to 6 weeks. This mirrors the cycle of skin cell growth, so it can always look and feel its best. Your age, skin type and environment will also affect the ideal frequency for you, so speak to your therapist for more personalised advice. If your lifestyle doesn’t allow, you can reap the benefits of a facial whenever you can fit one in.
Know Before You Go
It's best to go makeup-free so you start your treatment with a blank canvas. Facials begin with a consultation to figure out exactly what your skin needs - this is your chance to speak up and address any concerns you may have about the process. Don’t forget to mention any skin sensitivities you may have. Worried about extractions or exfoliation on your sensitive skin? Skip it! Lay back, relax, and prepare to look radiant.
