With all that is happening in the world, stress has become part of our everyday lives. Unfortunately, acne breakouts, psoriasis, rosacea, and eczema come with stress. In addition, wrinkles may form in the areas where you “hold” tension in your facial muscles. So, what better way to provide self-care than with a soothing facial! And since “facial” is part of our name, Gulf Coast Facial Plastics has a full range of options for effective skincare results.
Facials should be your first go-to treatment to cleanse pores, exfoliate dead skin cells, and address skin concerns.
So, what is a facial?
It’s a skin treatment that may include a multi-step process designed to rejuvenate and nourish your face to make your skin appear healthier and younger. Receiving a facial from our Aesthetician in our relaxing Medical Spa will leave you feeling pampered and relaxed.
How long does a spa facial take?
Most basic facials require 30 minutes to one hour, which allows you adequate time to fully decompress and enjoy the benefits of being catered to in a relaxing environment. However, to significantly improve the overall look of your skin, you may want to consider microdermabrasion.
What’s a facial microdermabrasion?
Unlike a basic facial, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive exfoliating treatment designed to improve the skin’s appearance. The procedure uses a special applicator to gently buff away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it. After several sessions, people receiving microdermabrasion may see brighter, smoother skin that is more even in color.
There are numerous benefits to microdermabrasion treatments:
- Reduction of the size of pores
- Elimination of acne scars
- Fading of sun damage and age spots
- Decrease in fine lines and wrinkles
- Brightens dull skin
- Evens out skin tone and texture
So, how often can you treat yourself to a facial?
Basic facials can be scheduled as often as you like. However, microdermabrasion facials should only be scheduled every 2 to 4 weeks to let your skin rest between treatments. For the best overall results, 6 to 12 sessions are recommended.
Be sure to tell our Aesthetician, Ashley, your goals, expectations, and problem areas you’d like to address. That way, we can ensure the best results from every facial you receive at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics. Call today to book your appointment: (850) 784-7722, Ext 321.
