How Often Should I Schedule a Facial?

Your face defines you. It portrays your emotions and distinguishes you from others. It’s the first thing people notice about you.

That’s why it’s important to take care of your skin so you can look your best. A good skin care regimen including regular facials are one of the best ways to keep a youthful appearance. Facials cleanse, exfoliate, and rejuvenate your skin to improve concerns and brighten your appearance.

L.A. Vinas Plastic Surgery, with three locations in Florida, offers five unique facials to revitalize your skin and supercharge it with the nutrients it needs. Here’s why you should consider facials as part of your self-care plan and how often to get them.

Get bright, picture-perfect skin

Facials are one of the oldest skin care methods and for a good reason — they work. Facials describe a deep-cleansing treatment that removes impurities and dead skin for softer, brighter skin.

Affordable and noninvasive, facials are one of the safest and cost-effective ways to get beautiful skin. Not only are facials beneficial, but they’re also relaxing. Reduce your stress while we revamp your skin from the inside out.

Facials can:

  • Improve collagen production
  • Clear and minimize pores
  • Hydrate your skin
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Eliminate pimples and breakouts
  • Correct pigmentation
  • Reduce inflammation

More than 2.73 million Americans received four or more facials in 2020.

Meet the five purifying steps of a facial

Facials last between 60 and 90 minutes depending on the type of facial you receive. Whether you’re looking to combat acne or reap antiaging benefits, most facials include these five steps:

1. Deep cleansing

By gently massaging a cleanser into your skin, our skin experts cleanse your pores and remove toxins, makeup, and bacteria. We flush your skin with warm water and analyze your skin to better provide it with the best treatment.

2. Exfoliation

We gently remove dead skin cells with a scrub, tool, microdermabrasion or chemical peel to reveal smooth skin.

3. Extraction

Using a special tool, we clear your pores from dirt, sebum, and dead skin cells. This is an important step that clears congestion and acne-causing bacteria from your pores. While not painful, this step in the process may cause some discomfort but is done within minutes.

4. Massage

Your skin care expert gently massages your face to reduce inflammation and circulate blood flow. Not only does this feel amazing, but it improves lymphatic drainage to promote healthy skin tissues.

5. Mask

Depending on your skin type, we apply a type of mask to your face for around thirty minutes. This nourishes your skin, deeply penetrating it with essential vitamins and oils, and providing you with dewy, touchable skin.

How often to get them

You live a busy life. Between work and your social life, sometimes it can be hard to squeeze in time for you. But when you look your best, you feel the best, so it’s important to stay on top of your skin care routine.

Experts suggest getting one facial per month to maximize its benefits. Cellular turnover in your skin is completed once every 28 days, so this is the ideal timeframe to undergo a facial.

Your at-home skin care regimen is also important so stay consistent and document any changes in your skin. At the minimum, your at-home treatment should involve cleansing your face twice daily, moisturizing, and applying SPF.

Professional treatment is always a step above the rest — our team is highly skilled in everything skin-related to help minimize pesky concerns and provide antiaging benefits.
