Facials cleanse and moisturize the skin. Many include ingredients and techniques that tighten and tone the skin, causing it to be firmer and more resilient. Facials can rejuvenate the tissues and erase many of the superficial signs of aging. Depending on the techniques used in the facials, the results may last a month or longer. Combining facials with techniques like chemical peels and certain types of laser procedures can lead to results that last several months. A facial not only improves skin’s tone but can also improve its texture as well. Smoothing the surface of the skin can eliminate very fine lines and reduce the risk of creases forming at the corner of the mouth and eyes.
A person’s skin tone is often determined by genetics. Aside from what a person can’t control, there are several things they can do to prevent the signs of aging from taking over. Reducing the amount of time spent in direct sunlight is one of the most important ways to reduce skin damage. Eliminating cigarettes is another way. Cigarette smoke robs the skin of moisture, and exposure to the smoke itself can cause the skin to deteriorate much quicker. Use mild cleansers and moisturize often. Keeping the skin moisturized is important when trying to fight lines and wrinkles. Moisturizers are available that have sunscreens added to them for extra protection.
The type of facial being used will determine what type of corrections can be made. In most cases, blemishes, mild acne scars, sun spots, fine lines, light wrinkles, and skin discolorations may be visibly reduced. Proper skin care may be what is needed the most when it comes to correcting minor imperfections. Facials work well at keeping the skin well-toned and nourished. This can prevent fine lines from appearing and will also keep the pores clean, preventing pimples or acne outbreaks. Monthly facials may also be beneficial at helping the skin retain moisture and elasticity.
