Finding the right facial treatment for your skin’s needs can be confusing and overwhelming. With so many options available, you want to ensure you choose a facial that addresses your unique skin needs and concerns while also fitting your lifestyle.
Whether you are looking for hydration, anti-aging benefits, acne-clearing solutions, or overall skin rejuvenation, selecting the right facial is the key to achieving optimal results.
Understanding Different Facial Treatments
When choosing the right facial for your skin, it’s essential to understand the different options available and their benefits. At Aspire Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of popular facial treatments designed to target various skin concerns.
HydraFacial® is a non-invasive, non-surgical facial treatment option that can help improve acne, dry skin, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines. This fast and painless facial option offers immediate results with no downtime. We recommend monthly treatments to maintain optimal results.
BBL Photofacials and ND-Yag are laser facial treatments utilizing intense pulsed light that can change the appearance of skin damaged by sun, time, or the environment. Pain during laser treatments is minimal, and there is no downtime – though consistent sun protection after the procedure is required. We usually recommend up to six treatments for maximum results, but many patients see improvement after the first appointment.
Diamond Glow® Is a non-invasive 3-in-1 system that works to exfoliate, extract, and infuse your skin. It can improve large pores, blemishes, dryness, or rough texture. One treatment session often offers noticeable improvement for patients, but a regular treatment schedule can help keep your skin glowing and healthy.
Chemical Peels are a skin rejuvenation procedure that utilizes chemicals to remove the damaged outer layer of your skin. Different strengths of chemicals are available for varying needs, and the amount and duration used also is adjusted per patient. Recovery time with chemical peels varies, depending on the intensity of the treatment. At most, patients experience minimal peeling and downtime. Sunscreen use after a chemical peel is essential. Results may take several days up to several months to fully appear, but results will often be long-lasting.
Moxi™ is a fractioned wavelength technology that offers gentle treatments with minimal downtime. These treatments can help improve uneven pigmentation, skin tone and texture, light sun damage, and signs of aging. Receiving Moxi™ treatments is a great way to prevent visible signs of aging or for a long-term maintenance plan.
Regardless of which facial type you choose, we also recommend utilizing a consistent and effective skincare regimen to support your skin between treatments. We recommend Colorescience®, SkinMedica®, and other product lines in our online store.
As you can see, each type of facial offers unique benefits and caters to specific skin concerns. By understanding the variety of treatment options available, you can make an informed decision and choose the facial that aligns with your skin goals.
How to Choose the Right Facial
There are several factors to consider when selecting the right facial treatment for your skin. By understanding your skin type and identifying specific issues you want to address, you can make an informed decision and select a facial that will provide the best results.
Understand Your Skin Type
Knowing if your skin is dry, oily, combination, or sensitive will help you choose the right products and treatments. Choosing the wrong sort of product for your skin can cause the opposite effect, such as drying out already dry skin or making oily skin even oilier.
Identify Specific Skin Concerns
Pinpointing where you are struggling will help you choose a facial treatment to specifically target issues like hydration, signs of aging, acne breakouts, dullness, and more. Some treatments have multiple uses, so they can help with a variety of concerns, but picking one issue to target first can help with ensuring you pick the right one.
Conduct a Self-Assessment
Take notice to see if you have rough or smooth skin texture, enlarged or congested pores, or uneven skin tone to help determine the areas that need improvement. This does not mean you need to know all of the issues you want to correct, however; our team of experts can help you determine which areas to remedy first!
Do Your Research
Look for facial products and providers that utilize high-quality, professional-grade products to help you achieve your ideal skin. Inform your skincare professional of any allergies, sensitivities, or medical conditions. Your provider can also help by recommending their preferred products for your needs.
Consider Lifestyle Factors
Downtime, cost, and frequency vary between facial types, so you want to choose a treatment type that will fit your lifestyle and needs. Spending too much on a product that just won’t cut it for your skin type or concern can be discouraging and have a negative impact on the progress of your skin.
