The 6 Big Benefits of Facials

In our humble opinion, a good facial should be part of your regular skin care routine. They’re relaxing, rejuvenating and incredibly beneficial to your face’s skin health. Here’s why. 

Improve your skin health:

Maybe the most obvious benefit of facials is improving the overall health of your skin. Facials remove dead skin cells through exfoliation, unclog your pores and hydrate your skin. This can help to reduce acne, blemishes and other problems, but it also helps to generally ensure your skin is in tip-top health.

Increase your skin’s radiance:

The hydration we mentioned? That moisturising of your skin, removing dead skin cells and exfoliation really can give you a radiant, healthy glow. A glow that tells the world your skin is as healthy as it now looks!

Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles:

Collagen is essential to your skin’s elasticity, and facials stimulate the production of this essential protein. Elastic, healthy skin of course helps to make your skin look and feel younger and more radiant. Facials can also help to reduce the puffiness and dark circles under your eyes by stimulating lymphatic drainage.

Reduce stress!

The benefits of facials aren’t all technical and biological, some of them are purely for the enjoyment of it. Facials are relaxing, calming and all around a great way to reduce stress—the massage reduces tension in your neck and face muscles. Treat yourself! To briefly get technical again, the reduced stress is also great for ensuring healthy, youthful skin for years to come. 

Improve your mood:

The 4 Core Types of Facials

Facials aren’t a one-size fits all treatment, where you’ll get the same experience and the same outcome no matter where you go. If you’re in Sydney, one of the best ways to understand what facial you need or want is to give us a call. We’ll not only help you book the perfect facial, but if it’s your first time we guarantee you’ll love it.

If you’re not in Sydney, or you want to do a little more reading before choosing a clinic, consider your skin type and concerns. If you’re living with acne-prone skin, your perfect facial won’t be the same as someone with dry skin. Likewise, if you want to brighten your skin tone, you’ll want a different facial than someone that’s trying to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Corrective Facials

Targeted Solutions for Specific Skin Concerns

Corrective facials are designed to target specific skin concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. These typically use specialised products and techniques to address these issues, leaving you with clearer, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

Corrective facials can be especially effective when it comes to ageing. For example, aesthetic medical treatments have inspired the Skeyndor range.

This has the ability to slow muscle contraction, increase volume of the skin and fill deep wrinkles.

It also improves the architecture and cellular communication within the skin. This stimulates the process of tissue regeneration which rejuvenates the skin and normalises its appearance.

It’s composition is capable of overcoming the natural barrier of the skin and it combines natural ingredients to re-plump internal tissue and fill expression lines, along with utilising neuro-inhibiting agents and peptides to lift and firm.

If you’re struggling with a particular skin concern, a corrective facial may be just what you need to achieve your desired results.

Global lift facials are an excellent choice if you’re looking for an instant lift and tightening effect on your skin. These use specialised products and techniques to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity. This leaves you with a firmer, more youthful-looking complexion. If you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up before a big event or just want to look your best, a global lift facial is an excellent option to consider.

Oxygen Facials:

Nourish and Rejuvenate Your Skin

Oxygen facials are a fantastic choice if you’re looking to nourish and rejuvenate your skin. These use a specialised machine to infuse oxygen and specialised serums into your skin. This helps to stimulate collagen production and improve skin tone and texture. Oxygen facials are particularly beneficial if you’re looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are also highly effective if you want to give your skin a much-needed boost of hydration.
