Not Just a Luxury: Why Everyone Needs a Facial

People often associate facials with luxury—something that they treat themselves to. Even though facials can be luxurious, they can also be an essential component of a skincare regimen that helps your skin remain healthy and more youthful-looking for years.

Just as there are many different skin types and issues, there are multiple kinds of facials. These various facials can be customized to address the specific needs of each individual, including facials that are designed to reduce stress. Many of the facials we offer at our medical spa in Anchorage accomplish many objectives.

Here are some of the most important reasons everyone needs a facial (actually, routine facials):

Preventing future skincare concerns, even when your complexion is fine: Some fortunate people have naturally healthy and smooth skin. But skincare specialists say that consistent facial care by an esthetician helps prevent future skincare concerns that may appear, including breakouts, early signs of aging, enlarged pores, flaky skin, and seasonal skin vulnerabilities.

Anti-aging: Even if you already see signs of aging, facials can help keep your skin healthy and more resistant to the toll the natural aging process takes on the skin. In fact, treatments such as our Signature Facial that includes massage and extractions can be even more beneficial after you’ve noticed the first wrinkles and fine lines.

Hydration for dry skin: Alaska’s cold, dry air makes hydrating your skin even more important. A top-notch moisturizer for daily use is essential, but it is only one small aspect of managing dry skin. Facials can play a vital role in keeping your skin hydrated. Our Deluxe Facial, for example, includes personalized gels that penetrate deep into the skin to hydrate and cleanse.

Improve your overall well-being: The simple act of having someone massage your face with soothing oils can relieve stress, help reduce anxiety, and create a more positive attitude. That may sound a bit far-fetched, but studies such as this one conducted by researchers at Kyushu University User Science Institute actually demonstrated these overall benefits of med spa facials.

Women and men who are serious about anti-aging skin care should also consider combining facials with other med spa treatments for even more effective facial rejuvenation treatments. At Med Spa at ACENT, we offer a microdermabrasion and facial combo procedure that pairs gentle exfoliation with the relaxing Essential Facial, cleansing the skin and removing impurities and dead skin to produce a brighter complexion.
