New to the world of facials?
Worried about what to expect?
Excited for your first experience?
Read on to learn what to expect from your first time Toronto facial.
Why get a facial?
It makes sense: you eat well, you work out, you cut your hair, so why would you neglect your face?
Facials help you keep on top of common problems, preventatively and actively.
They help you stay fresh no matter the season.
Take, for instance, autumn.
When your heat goes on for the first time in October, your skin is one of the first changes you may notice.
The heat inside can cause dehydration and facials are excellent for keeping your skin moisture levels where you want them.
When the weather switches back in the spring, skin can get oily and cause breakouts.
Facials are the best treatment for these and many other problems.
What results can you expect?
What are the benefits you can expect from facials?
Facials result in a glowing complexion, firmer skin, fewer breakouts, smoother texture, and proper hydration.
Regular treatments work.
If you’re not convinced, just notice how much better people who are treated regularly look compared to those who don’t.
You can tell who is taking care of themselves and who isn’t.
How often should you go?
Your needs will vary depending on your skin type, of course, but ideally you should be seeing your aesthetician monthly if you’re able.
If you have more dry and dehydrated skin, you’ll want to go more often in the winter, whereas if you’re more of an oily skinned person, you might benefit from more attention in the summer.
What should you know before going?
While facials are great and generally pretty relaxing, they do have a few minor moments of discomfort involved.
Worry not, though: the results are worth it.
One potentially unpleasant part is extractions.
Extracting zits and other skin imperfections are best left to a trained aesthetician and not picked at at home.
Your aesthetician is trained and knows the exact angle and pressure required for a successful extraction.
They will soften your skin properly prepare it beforehand.
Also note that your aesthetician will NOT remove anything prematurely.
If it’s not ready and removed too early, it can cause scarring.
Another thing you will want to be aware of is that you may experience some redness.
Don’t worry, though, it will probably be gone in a day.
If your skin is prone to breakouts, it might take a bit longer, because it has more healing to do, but if you start doing regular facials, this healing time should decrease.
If it doesn’t seem to be getting better, your aesthetician will recommend a dermatologist to see if you have some systemic problems.
How do you make your results last?
Make sure you’re getting your money’s worth by investing in a quality facial.
You wouldn’t buy a Lamborghini and take it off-roading, right?
In the same vein, make sure you take care of your face to maintain your results.
You can’t expect lasting results if you sleep in your makeup or only wash with a bar of soap.
You need moisturizer and cleanser for your skin type and season.
Your aesthetician should be your first stop for all this information.
