There’s no bigger advantage in your appearance and overall health than having glowing, healthy, and attractive-looking skin. As your skin ages, it can lose that vibrant appearance and develop wrinkles, fine lines, acne, discoloration, and sagging.
One of the easiest ways to combat skin problems at any age is by getting regular professional-level facials. Licensed aesthetician Jessica Harrison from Northeastern Plastic Surgery in Florham Park, New Jersey, shares the benefits of getting regular facials.
What is a facial?
A facial encompasses most nonsurgical skin treatments a professional performs on your skin. Skin treatments performed on a facial can range from face masks to exfoliation to moisturizing massage.
Many facial treatments combine several different modalities. Jessica creates a personalized facial routine for you based on your skin type, age, and personal health and beauty goals.
What are the advantages of facials?
You can take great care of your skin at home, but getting regular professional facials takes your skin routine to a new level with the care that can only be provided by a professional. These are some of the top advantages of facial treatments.
Remove dead, unhealthy skin cells
Your skin is constantly regenerating, an essential process for removing damage and keeping your skin healthy. As you age or your skin gets damaged, it no longer regenerates as efficiently as it once did.
Facials rid your skin of one or several layers of old, damaged skin, revealing healthy, new layers underneath. This improves your appearance as well as the health of your skin.
Reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and sunspots
Many facial treatments target signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots. This helps your skin look younger and fresher.
Aging, stress, illness, and genetics can cause your skin to develop an uneven, blotchy tone. Facials decrease or eliminate hyperpigmentation, giving your skin a clearer and healthier look.
Increase skin elasticity
Skin can become overly dry and lose elasticity, especially as you age, and produce less collagen. Many facial treatments hydrate and moisturize the skin or help stimulate collagen production that reenergizes your skin.
Get rid of acne
Acne can plague you at any age, and some types are difficult to eliminate without professional intervention. Our facials can safely target acne by performing extractions at the root of blemishes without scarring or damaging skin.
Relax your facial muscles
Often, facials include facial massage as part of the treatment. This helps relax your facial muscles, which not only helps you feel better, it can improve blood flow, acne, and conditions like TMJ.
