Getting a facial is one of the best things you can do for your skin. It’s also a great thing to do for yourself! A facial is a simple and relaxing reward you can give yourself. Here at Facial Aesthetic Concepts in Orange County, we have four convenient locations where you can come in and choose the right kind of facial for your skin.
Facials can help detoxify your skin and can help correct and prevent a number of common skin issues. At our medical spa, we customize our facials to your unique skin and the concerns or issues that you are having. Our professional aestheticians will take the time to talk to you about your skin and help you figure out which of our facials will be best for you. From deep pore-cleansing to anti-aging, we can work with you to find the treatment that will give you the best results and give you cleaner, healthier, more glowing skin.
If you’ve never had a facial before, you may be wondering what you can expect. There are home facials that you can do yourself, but a professional facial is a much more in-depth treatment done by a trained aesthetician who knows how to get the most from the products and techniques that we use. Plus, having someone else do your facial gives you the time to relax while we do all the work for you.
Professional facials do more than just cleanse your skin. They also exfoliate dead skin cells so the fresher skin underneath looks and feels better. A proper facial nourishes your skin to make it healthier. Your skin will look and feel better. Common skin problems will be less noticeable and can sometimes be fixed entirely, and aged skin will have a more youthful appearance. Regular facials can help combat the effects that time and the environment can have on our skin. And they are great for people of nearly any age, from teens to people whose primary concern is aging.
A good facial helps to detoxify the skin by deep cleaning and getting rid of impurities. The pores in our skin can sometimes act like little pockets where impurities get trapped and make our faces look tired and even a little “dirty,” no matter how careful you are about your home skin care regimen.
Here are Facial Aesthetic Concepts, your facial will begin with a consultation between you and the aesthetician who will be doing your treatment. During consultation, you and your esthetician will discuss your skin. They will ask questions about how you take care of your skin, possibly including questions about your diet and your lifestyle, such as how often you are outside or how much time you spend in the sun. You will be asked to fill out a form as well, so that we can have a record of your skin type and skin concerns — this will be helpful as you continue to get facials. Regular facials are an excellent way to keep skin healthy! Plus, they feel fantastic.
After the consultation, you will begin your actual facial. The basic steps of a facial are the same, no matter what kind of facial you are getting or what is being treated. All good facials begin with cleansing, usually using cotton pads or sponges along with whatever skin products you and your aesthetician have determined will be best for your skin type. After cleansing, the aesthetician will look closely at your skin with the help of lights and a magnifying glass so that special issue can be seen. You may be asked more questions at this time, and the aesthetician will explain what they see and what steps will be taken next.
Steaming the skin is another important step. This helps to open the pores for additional cleansing and to prepare it for exfoliation. The opened pores will also be able to more easily absorb any treatment products that the aesthetician will use so that those products can work better to treat your concerns. This is also another important step in the overall detoxification of your skin — clean pores mean better skin.
Facial massage is also part of the process. This relaxes you and helps to stimulate your skin and the muscles beneath it. You may also be given a treatment mask or other skin care options. Finally, your skin will be toned and moisturized, and then you will be on your way.
