5 Reasons to Schedule Routine Facials

Have you ever gotten a facial? If you have, when was the last time you did? Although you may tell yourself that routine treatments for the face are something movie stars (and not normal people) worry about, getting regular facial treatments can be an extremely beneficial practice. 

Here at Defying Time, Dr. Catherine Moore — as well as the rest of our staff — wants you to understand not only the wide variety of facial treatments we offer but also the benefits of getting regular facials. 

What a facial entails 

A facial is a cosmetic treatment specifically focused on the health and vitality of the facial skin. At Defying Time, we offer more than one type of facial, including those for teens and adults, focusing on the individual needs of certain age groups like acne and anti-aging treatments. We also offer targeted treatments that focus on your individual needs, including your skin type, skin concerns, and best practices for maintaining your post-facial glow. 

5 reasons to get routine facials  

To some people, this can sound like something frivolous, a treat you would offer yourself if you were getting ready for a girls’ night out or on a business trip. In truth, getting a facial regularly can greatly benefit your skin, health, and your state of mind. As such, here are five reasons you should consider getting facials consistently and often. 

1. Benefits to your skin

Any way you slice it, a facial is good for your skin. It improves circulation (as there is a massage element involved with even the most basic of facials), it cleanses and detoxifies your skin. It can increase the firmness of your skin, helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. According to a study from the University of Illinois at Chicago, massage therapy increases blood flow, which is helpful for skin health, rejuvenation, and elasticity. 

2. Relaxation 

Facials — like massages — provide a level of relaxation for the patient, and we take that seriously here. When was the last time you simply breathed and let someone take care of you? According to a 2012 study on facials, many estheticians feel the relaxation element of the treatment is essential to both benefiting your skin and boosting your mental and physical health. And when facials are less expensive than a full-body massage, who can say no?  

3. Self-care and self-prioritization 

Speaking of boosting your mental health, the idea of getting a facial regularly might seem frivolous, but that’s precisely why you should consider it. If you’re the type of person who needs to carve out time for yourself, you might choose to have a standing date for a facial to ensure that you seek out that time. This ultimately will remind you that taking care of yourself is an essential part of your own life, allowing you to improve upon your ability to prioritize self-care. 

4. Help with other conditions 

Regular facials can be a helpful maintenance treatment for those with certain medical conditions. For example, suppose you suffer from a skin condition, such as acne, eczema, or rosacea. In that case, regular facials can be used to provide maintenance treatments, allowing you to manage your symptoms and to keep them from flaring up as often. Other medical conditions having nothing to do with the skin itself, such as TMJ, can also be managed more easily with the help of a regular facial. 

5. Advice from estheticians 

One of the best reasons to get a regular facial is because you can get helpful advice from a licensed esthetician on which products and behaviors will be most suitable for your skin. In addition, going to the same esthetician every few months will also ensure that they can learn the subtle needs and individualities of your skin, making for even more effective treatments as you continue your routine.
