We all aspire to have flawless and beautiful skin. When our skin looks smooth and glowy, it gives us more confidence about our physical appearance. Most of us have a good skincare routine or a specific beauty ritual that we do at home, but sometimes, we run into issues that we cannot address ourselves and we need to turn to the experts for professional treatments. This is where facials come to the rescue.
That being said, we need not turn to the experts only when we have problems or concerns that need to be solved. Instead, think of regular facials as an investment in skin health. After all, they do come with a myriad of benefits, which we’ll explore in this article.
What are the benefits of regular facial treatments?
The skin is the largest organ in the body, and regular facial treatments are the best way to optimise skin health. With regular facial treatments, not only can the experts address your skin concern, they can also customise a plan that would best suit your skin concerns such as skin tightening facials for saggy skin, hydrating facials for dry skin, or an LED facial for acne-prone skin. Typically each facial session will aim to provide these benefits:
- Deep cleanse and exfoliation
Exposure to pollution, UV rays and damage caused by environmental free radicals can result in a build up of dirt on your skin’s surface, especially if you live in the city. A professional can help unclog pores and slough off dead skin cells to reveal a healthy layer of skin underneath – all without causing damage, allowing your face to have that subtle glow after.
- Detox and rejuvenation of the skin
It’s one thing to be exposed to harmful UV rays and pollution, but it’s a whole other thing to deal with the excess sebum that your skin produces. Cleansing and washing your face every day does help, but not as much as regular facials during which the beauty therapists use oils, antioxidant-rich serums, masks and more to help detoxify your skin more effectively.
- Less acne scarring
When you squeeze a pimple or acne – which is indeed very tempting – you run the risk of scarring. Acne marks can be stubborn, but regular facials can help you in treating them. Aestheticians will typically use products with salicylic acid or enzyme peels for this (and in the right amounts), which is much safer than you giving it a go yourself at home.
- Slows down the signs of ageing
As the production of collagen diminishes with age (or due to other intrinsic or extrinsic factors), regular facials can help reduce the signs of ageing by boosting the regeneration of skin cells either through specialised massages or through potent products that can support cell renewal. The results? Glowing, hydrated and firm skin!
Achieve tighter, younger-looking and lifted skin with Ultherapy
Despite the many benefits that regular facials can provide, they are mostly topical and the effect it has on collagen production in your skin varies, especially if tighter and lifted skin is what you’re after. Consider complementing regular facials with a skin tightening and lifting treatment for the face such as Ultherapy, which is one of the most effective ways to boost skin collagen.
A non-invasive treatment, Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound with real-time imaging or visualisation (MFU-V) to deliver ultrasound energy deep within the skin to stimulate the skin’s new collagen and elastin production, which will then result in a lifted and firmer skin on the face, neck and décolletage.
Plus, you’ll be able to see results in just a few weeks, without the need to go under the knife or take drastic measures, with results lasting 12 to 18 months on average.
There’s nothing like feeling healthy and putting your best face forward. Having regular facial treatments helps you radiate confidence and makes you feel fantastic, but a session with Ultherapy will make you look younger, more lifted and sculpted!
