DO I REALLY NEED AN ANTI-AGING FACIAL?


Anti-aging facials have the same steps of a regular facial, but with the added ingredients that are directed at mature skin, which typically means ages 40+, however plenty of people get these treatments as young as twenty-somethings or thirty-somethings, because the skin could already be showing signs of aging.

Well, why do you need an anti-aging facial in the first place? Because as we age, our skin becomes thin and dried out as a result of the loss of collagen, which used to give it a thicker, more plump appearance, as well as elastin, which used to make it come-back more rapidly. This is further complicated by the lengthening of the time it takes for healthier, younger cells to travel to the uppermost layer slowing down, which results dull-looking skin. The final nail in the coffin is that our faces are wide-open to the elements, forming lines & creases on account of the millions facial expressions we have.

An anti-aging treatment may contain a chemical peel, masks, and/or different serums that have anti-oxidants such as Vitamin-C or ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, which draws water to cells, exfoliates and nurtures the body to encourage clean, super-hydrated skin

It is at times called a "deep cleansing" or "deep-pore" facial for its focus on maximum numbers of extractions. At hand are additional potent anti-aging facials available, including photo-facials and micro-dermabrasion.

YOU’LL GET A SKIN ANALYSIS

The Aesthetician will look at your skin via an intensely-lit lamp that magnifies to expose different skin illnesses, like dry-skin, damaged capillaries, sun spots, aging concerns, lines and/or wrinkling; and while mature skin isn’t as likely to breakout, sometimes there are large blackheads than need to be resolved. This is where all issues will be raised and the remaining treatment will be focused on addressing these concerns

A TRUE SKIN CLEANSING

This treatment begins with a cleansing using cotton-based implements as well as an ideal set of products picked for aged skin, most likely a cream-based cleanser.

THE IDEAL METHOD OF EXFOLIATION

Your therapist will probably use a mechanical device and/or a chemical exfoliant... The “mech-side” of things usually is textured and is partnered with steam vapors directed at the areas being worked on. Then the chemical-based peels can be part of the facial or an a-la-carte treatment, although It is an upgrade and generally done in a package of them.

BENEFIT FROM TRULY PROFESSIONAL EXTRACTIONS

The biggest problem that also leads to more unrelated problems stems from the combination of blackheads and whiteheads, that’s if you need it.

WHO DOESN’T LOVE A FACIAL MASSAGE

Using the standard massage strokes to restore your face, stimulate the skin and strengthen facial muscles.

THEN THERE’S THE FACIAL MASK

Once the skin system is returned into a truly blank canvas, the facial mask used is focused on aged skin. The determined mask will vary depending on which skincare product-line the spa uses as well as which facial you requested. They may also employ the application of different skin-toners, skin-serums and protecting balms as well as going-forward advice your skincare practices at home.

ARE THE RESULTS WORTH IT?

Anti-aging treatments are very good, but it is contingent on the skill-level and capability of the Aesthetician, the excellence of the chemicals, and especially whether you actually deploy a good follow-up skin care régime. These facials and skin care lines are also better when used in combination with rehabilitation like LED light and boosting collagen levels, but be careful about doing it excessively and try to get advice from somebody you trust. Also, watch out for anti-aging chemicals that are harsh on sensitive skin, because you don't want to get a severe anti-aging treatment at a resort then go sit in the sun.
