Facials Q & A
What is a facial?
A facial is a popular skincare regimen that cleans, exfoliates, and nurtures your skin. The relaxing procedure uses steam, extraction, exfoliation, massage, peels, creams, and lotions to treat common skin imperfections. Facials are well-known for their restorative effect on skin, making your face look younger and healthier.
What can you expect during a facial?
Before your one-hour facial, Dr. Ressler’s aesthetician meets with you to to assess your skin type, discuss your needs, and determine exactly which procedures and products you’ll need to optimize your skin. There are many variations on the basic facial, but in general, you can expect to enjoy these steps:
- Cleansing: removal of dirt, grime, and makeup
- Steam: warm water vapors soften skin to prepare exfoliation and extraction
- Exfoliation: sloughing off dead skin cells
- Extraction: removal of blackheads, whiteheads, and oil build up in your pores
- Massage: relaxing stimulation of facial muscles to provoke lymphatic drainage
- Mask: application of a custom mask to treat oiliness, dryness, sensitive, or aging skin
- Final touches: a finishing touch of serum and moisturizing lotion with SPF factor
What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a skin care procedure that uses a special blade to remove vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz. Unlike waxing for hair removal, dermaplaning offers the added benefit of exfoliating dead skin cells to make your face brighter and smoother.
During a dermaplaning session, an aesthetician gently and precisely scrapes the scalpel across your face to remove the top layer of skin. It sounds painful, but it’s doesn’t hurt at all. In fact, the feeling is similar to shaving your legs. Women with all skin types benefit from the procedure, but those with pustular acne should not try dermaplaning.
