Why Didn’t My Facial Work?

January 23rd, 2014

After spending top dollar for professional care some clients leave wondering ‘why didn’t my facial work?’   There are many reasons some of the most touted skincare treatments don’t always deliver the desired results.  Well read and highly trained aestheticians at NYC spas consult their clients beforehand just to avoid this scenario…

Know your skin type.  If your skin type hasn’t been assessed by a professional prior to your facial issues you’ve faced cannot be adequately addressed.  In these cases irritation can sometimes be the undesired effect.  So this is a critical consideration before you embark on choosing natural or technologically advanced treatments.  Asking questions can never hurt in the long run.


The applied skincare line. Many products have chemical additives that deplete hydration which expedites the aging process.  Fortunately, there is high end skincare on the market that offers quality botanical ingredients to enhance collagen and elastin production for a restored look of youthful vigor.   These products are getting the spotlight   because they are in the most demand for their age-reversing abilities.

Lifestyle habits.  If you went on a bender the night before your facial that can have remarkable impact on whether or not our LED light therapy, or oxygen facial will give the age-defying effects most clients aspire to.  If you had a late night out be sure to rehydrate by drinking lots of water to detoxify the body and skin.

Developing a face care routine (and sticking with it).  Always clean your skin daily preferably with tepid water and a Vitamin C cleanser that reenergizes for a flawless and glowing complexion.  Lavish your face with a nourishing serum and moisturizer to replenishes concentrated vitamins and minerals.  When you find the routine that really works for your skin make a concerted effort to maintain it.  One mis-step, and you’ll see it on your face ultimately.  Once you find the perfect facial that you treat yourself to monthly–maintain that healthy habit. Trust that your select aesthetician will commend you for it!

Maintain a healthy diet.  Seems obvious, but this tenet is harder to abide by with a busy career.  Even in the high octane world of business there’s always time to treat yourself to a green juice that rejuvenates the body in the same way a green daily serum does for dermal tissue.  A diet rich in protective antioxidants, protein, iron, fatty acids, Vitamin A, C and E will revive the health of even the most stubborn skin.  Choosing foods that offer these nutrients will ensure that your next holistic facial, at the top natural day spa, will boost the overall health and appearance of your face for better.
