What are they & why do we need them?
Each one of us has skin imperfections that we struggle to cover. Is your cupboard in the bathroom packed with tried and failed products? It might be time to explore from a professional a different form of treatment. Sometimes you just want a little skin "pick-me-up" and a traditional facial with all the massage, and it feels nice to relax! But if you have a particular and specific issue you want to overcome, the solution to your long-fought skin insecurities is a corrective facial. Learn the benefits and the best way to get the most out of your investment in skin care and relieve your doubts about corrective facials and make them work for you!
Corrective facials are a step forward from last decade's "steam and cream" days. These are skin treatments that are strong, efficient, and instantly gratifying. They often include chemical peels, Facial Enzyme/Peel, Dermaplaning, Microneedling, and HydraFacial .
Importance of Corrective Facials
One corrective facial will give you instant results that last several weeks to a month. However, if you do a series of 3 or 6 twice a year this is targeting deep skin concerns and will give you long term dramatic results. Especially as we age, our skin cells don’t turn over as quickly as they do when we are young. When we are in our 20s they turn over every 28 days. In our 30s and 40s it’s more like 35 – 40 days. Once we hit 50 and beyond, the turnover slows to nearly 60 days!
Misconceptions of Corrective Facials
Getting a facial treatment will cause break-outs: People often think they break out after a facial, but your skin is actually purging. This is the process where clogged pores and hair follicles, deep below the surface, are now getting the chance to “purge” due to the deep exfoliation of the corrective facial. This purging is simply blocked pores that would have eventually come out over time, it’s just being fast tracked, therefore revealing clear, bright skin sooner!
I can get the same results from an at-home treatment: There are tons of products on the market that boast “spa-quality results.” However, what we use in the clinic is far greater strength than what you can purchase on the shelf for home care. By attempting to fix your skin issues at home, you may end up causing even more problems! Trust the experts.
A facial should cure all of my skin woes: While corrective facials do help skin issues, they are primarily meant to correct any future imperfections and problems. You will see a change in your skin, but the biggest (and best) changes come in the form of preventing issues.
Once is enough: You will see wonderful results with your corrective facial treatment that can last up to a month. But without continued maintenance, your treatment will be more of a relaxing experience than a skin-changing one. Our suggestion? Do a series of three or six corrective facial treatments twice a year to target deep skin concerns and see long-term, dramatic results.
Why we Love Them
There are plenty of reasons to love corrective facial treatments, especially after you’ve experienced one!
Our treatments incorporate pharmaceutical grade, botanically-based ingredients and potent antioxidants to solve pesky skin conditions. Depending on the treatment, a corrective facial can clear up acne, even out the moisture in your skin to correct dryness or oiliness, regulate pigmentation, and help minimize fine lines and wrinkles from aging.
After a treatment, you will be able to see a visible difference in your skin. Corrective facials deliver immediate and lasting results as opposed to other short-lived quick fixes. With our treatment procedures, you will see optimal results for your skin issues based on your unique skin ID.
