Our facials are more than just a feel good procedure. They are part of an individualized program created to maintain healthy revitalized skin. Unlike our chemical peels, our facials deep cleanse, extract when needed and hydrate damaged skin. They are ideal all year round to sooth, hydrate, refresh and calm damaged skin in a relaxing environment. Let our experienced Medical aestheticians treat you or your teen to one of our facial experiences!Have a Question
What should I expect during my Facial treatment?
Before your first treatment, we will ask you to fill out an intake form. Each treatment starts with a complimentary VISIA skin analysis to understand your skin’s needs and focus on addressing any specific areas that you are concerned with. Each facial is tailored to your exact skin’s needs based on the problem areas seen on the VISIA and will keep your skin looking healthy and radiant. You will be escorted into our private, on-site spa suite where a comfortable spa table awaits. The facial will start off with a deep cleansing of your skin, exfoliation, extractions (black head removal), facial massage, mask and custom-blended moisturizer. Lasting about an hour, you will leave feeling refreshed with radiant, healthy looking skin.
What types of Facials do you offer?
If you have ever read a facial menu, it can be overwhelming. Do you want Signature facial, an Ultimate facial, a Hydrating facial, a Brightening facial, a Purifying facial, an Anti-aging facial or do you want a feel good facial? Who understands the difference between them and what they really do?
Here at True Beauty Med Spa we offer only 2 facials which are anti-aging and medically oriented to improve skin tone, texture and appearance- our Clinical and our Lifting facial. Our other facials -Acne and Teen – target specific problems. Each of our facials is fully customized and intended to hydrate your skin, remove surface debris and stimulate a healthy glow by providing a total treatment. There are few add ons on our Menu since our 2 age defying facials offer almost everything you will need.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a popular procedure which leaves your skin soft as a baby’s bottom. Many of our clients request it as part of their facial treatment. It is a simple and safe means of exfoliation, performed by scraping off the dull dead layers of skin. It removes the vellus hairs (baby fine hairs) on the face leaving the skin feeling smoother and softer.
What are the benefits of a professional Facial?
Facials allow you to relax. They feel great and are healing to the soul. The power of touch, massage, proper technique, and professional products can heal. Facials also decrease waste underneath the skin that can cause puffiness, ruddiness, and fluid accumulation by manipulating the lymphatic system that lies just under the skin. Facials also aid in detoxification. Our medical facial provide numerous benefits to your skin, including:
- Reverses visible signs of aging
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Restores elasticity and firmness
- Improves skin tone and texture
- Improves circulation
- Alleviates redness and sensitivity
- Helps repair damage to skin’ surface and prevent future damage
- Removes dead surface cells and blackheads
- Reduces blemishes and breakouts
- Reduces appearance of unwanted pigmentation
How often should I get a Facial?
Facials are ideal every 4-6 weeks since your outermost layer of visible skin will completely renew itself approximately every 28 days. This process of cell renewal slows down as we age. Facials help to exfoliate old and tired cells and aid cellular metabolism. This in turn helps to fight the signs of aging. People will wait until they encounter a skin concern (weird breakouts, dry itchy skin, dark spots, etc.) or have an upcoming special event before coming in for a facial. While this is totally OK, these frustrating problems can often be preempted by proper regular facials and personalized customization with the correct at-home products. Your skin is always on display and often has the power to dictate how good you feel about yourself. Investing in proper skincare has a value that can be arguably more important than buying a new dress or going out to an upscale restaurant.
Am I a good candidate for a Facial?
Everyone can benefit from a great facial. A study in the journal of Biomedical Research has shown that the facial massage (an important part of every facial) might refresh the client by reducing the psychological distress levels through relaxation, and by activating the sympathetic nervous system. Biomed Res. 2008 Dec;29(6):317-20)
Will I breakout from a Facial?
A good facial should actually help your skin. Breakouts do sometimes occur since a good facial has opened and cleansed the pores allowing any retained debris such as old makeup or bacteria to come to the surface. Ultimately, your skin will look better after a facial, and a customized treatment from a licensed skin specialist is key.
Is there any downtime from a Facial?
There is no downtime. If there are a large number of extractions, there can be initial redness but it will go away within a few hours.
