Why Choose to Have Facials?

July 22nd, 2011

With all the daily cleansers, exfoliants, masks, toners and serums to scrub away dead skin cells, buff and moisturize your way to improved clear skin, there may be spots you miss. Think of your face as refined sculpture to be viewed from all sides. Some very thoughtful chiseling has to take place for that final work of art to come to fruition.

Woman With Radiant Skin

Like any conscious person who cares about the best possible health we consider all possibilities that will put us on that path. Sometimes having an expert onlooker’s perspective gives us the full 3–dimensional angles of what is truly going on with the health of our skin. I remember the first time a friend and very skilled precise esthetician took a look at my skin in an impromptu consultation. She had what I would consider x-ray intuition when it comes to skin diagnosis for even the skeptic in me. That was the first time I seriously considered the benefits of a true facial.

Skin care professionals have access to a wealth of information about organic product options, the latest technology in skincare, chemical to avoid, and the best treatments for sensitive skin. While we go about our daily grind in the urban landscape and other terrains, there is an expert who can assess the damage done for the best treatment of our weathered skin. All the areas we miss in our daily cleansing rituals can be addressed and reliably treated by an eagle eye skin care expert.

For precision applications and ultimate results in a professional facial there are a few state of the art methods to achieve the softest, clearest most toned skin you wondered if you would ever obtain. You will have it by the end of your facial and will maintain it with the well-weighed advice at a quality spa from a mindful skincare professional that offers intensive thoughtful care.

LED Light Therapy

LED (Light Emitting Diodes) is a powerful, but gentle technology that reliably reverse the signs of aging while boosting your skin’s production of essential proteins like elastin and collagen. It has been used for over a 100 years by the likes of NASA for rapidly healing wounds and injuries. Now it is available exclusively at select quality spas for skincare treatment. The benefits are astonishing in depth as LED is a potent and completely safe application of light to replenish cells, while firming skin for healthy tone and appearance.

Microcurrent Facial

If you’re hoping to disappear those encroaching signs of aging, a mild electric current facial has multiple restorative benefits. This method can reduce sagging, fine lines and wrinkles for more youthful looking skin. It is a safe option that also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in skin tissue for flexibility in that gorgeous smile that defies age. Microcurrent has been effectively used for healing scar tissue by regenerating the energy to the injured area. Since the body naturally generates electric currents, this treatment enhances your body’s flow of energy for truly beautiful toned ageless results in your skin.

These methods are proven to be safe and effective producing the long sought after stunningly beautiful skin we all hope to achieve with that first facial and all those that follow. Salud!
