As you grow older, your skin naturally begins losing elasticity, making you more susceptible to wrinkles. Your skin will also become gradually drier and rougher in texture. These hallmarks of aging can leave you feeling less attractive and even embarrassed about your appearance. If this sounds all too familiar, you should consider undergoing a customized facial from Queen City Plastic Surgery in Charlotte.
Before taking a deep dive into the benefits of facials, it may help to explain what a facial is for the uninitiated. A med spa facial is a type of treatment delivered by one of our medical estheticians who has been trained in advanced skincare procedures. A facial can thoroughly cleanse your skin, remove dead skin cells and cellular debris, relax your facial muscles, and more.
So without further ado, let’s get into the many benefits of facials, including:
1. Improved Skin Tone and Texture
After undergoing a med spa facial, you’ll notice a significant enhancement in the texture and tone of your skin and its overall appearance. Your skin pores will be reduced, and fine lines and wrinkles will be less prominent. Discolored skin due to the aging process, such as sunspots, will fade.
Just like a dry riverbed, skin that is drier is more prone to developing the cracks that we call wrinkles. A good facial will help to clean and moisturize your face so that moisture is locked in and damage is kept out.
In addition to cleansing and exfoliating your skin, your provider can apply a smoothing serum to your face, letting it literally drink in nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, proteins, and more. Each facial can be customized to address your specific skin concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and rosacea.
3. Increases Blood Circulation
When blood flow to your face is restricted, your skin has a hard time ridding itself of toxins and taking in nourishment. A relaxing facial can enhance the blood circulation in your face through steam, heat, and facial massage.
Your esthetician will use steam to open up your skin pores, allowing deeper and more efficient cleaning. If you have blackheads or whiteheads, a deep pore cleansing will help to open up clogged skin pores.
In addition to improving blood circulation, a facial will increase the lymphatic drainage of your skin, helping to remove toxins and impurities.
4. Reduces Stress
Another benefit of facials that we don’t always think about is the stress-reduction effect. Studies have found that facial massage lowers anxiety levels by working on the sympathetic nervous system. It has also been found that the face contains numerous pressure points that connect distant parts of your body. Facial massage stimulates your body and boosts your mood. It leaves your skin glowing and your mood uplifted.
