Facial treatments are relaxing, it’s true. Feeling pampered is also one of their benefits. But did you know that there are other benefits to these popular treatments…benefits to your overall wellness as well as the health of your skin.
Choosing the type of facial treatment you want depends on what you’re looking for. Some facial treatments are designed to deep-clean your skin, others exfoliate, while others offer moisturizing benefits. Some are designed to help relieve stress – which, if you didn’t know – is one of the causes of acne.

- Anti-Aging. While there is no way to stop the aging process, a variety of facial treatments and technologies may help slow your skin’s aging process and offer you more youthful, supple look. Intense pulsed light laser treatments help remove dead skin and increase collagen, which is essential for plump and healthy skin cells.
- Increased Circulation. Facial treatments help improve and restore circulation to your skin, increasing the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to the skin cells. This rush of blood to the skin gives your skin a healthy glow and plumps the cells with vital nutrients and water, which reduce the appearance of wrinkled and dry skin. Nutrients like blood, vitamins and minerals found in the blood, along with adequate hydration, help develop and maintain new skin cells, essential for a healthy, youthful glow.
- Cleansing. Facials deep clean your skin, removing toxins caused by pollution, and grease and dirt found in the environment. Facials also help reduce sebum, a natural skin lubricant. Overproduction of sebum is a cause of some skin conditions, including acne and blackheads. Cleansing facials open the pores of your skin, remove dead skin and toxins from your face, and clean and tighten the surface of your skin through exfoliation.
- Emotional Benefits. Facials feel good. Through massage, they increase circulation and the flow of blood to your skin. They use a variety of creams, aromatherapy and oils to moisturize your skin. They smell great…and help to calm your mind and relieve stress.
