WHAT IS A FACIAL? WHY DO I NEED ONE?
A facial is a professional cleansing, purifying, and beautifying treatment of the skin . A facial can include steam, exfoliation, extractions, facial masks , peels, and a massage. You need a facial for the same reason you need a doctor and dentist, check-ups are necessary. Skin is a living part of your body (your largest organ, in fact), that defends against environmental assaults and extreme temperatures. It helps eliminate toxins from the body, and it is continually renewing and protecting. For your skin to look and feel its best, your skin needs personal attention from a professional. Facials are recommended every 4 weeks. Here at Beauty Bully Studio we offer a variety of skin treatments that will target your specific needs, and prescribe the products that will help maintain your optimum skin health at home in between facials.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FACIAL APPOINTMENT?
Plan to arrive to your first appointment about 5-10 minutes early. You will need to fill out a consultation form listing contact information, allergies and any medications that you are currently taking. Then your esthetician will evaluate your skin using a magnify lamp, ask you about your goals for your skin, and make a recommendation for skincare products and treatments to help you reach those goals. A facial generally consists of cleansing, exfoliation, steam, massage and a treatment mask.
HOW SOON WILL I START SEEING RESULTS FROM MY FACIAL?
Some people see results immediately, and your skin should feel different right away. The skin feels clean, smooth, hydrated, and reflects a new level of health that’s visibly noticeable. If the skin has more advanced long-term needs, such as treatment of skin aging, acne or hyper-pigmentation caused by hormonal fluctuations or sun damage, results may not be immediately visible; however, skin health will continue to improve as you follow the advice of your professional skin therapist, and continue your home-care regimen.
WILL MY SKIN BE RED OR IRRITATED AFTER MY FACIAL ?
Slight redness is normal after a facial, especially if you received a large amount of extractions or received a chemical exfoliant. Certain skin types may be more prone to experiencing more redness post treatment. Redness will dissipate shortly after your facial service is completed.
CAN I WEAR MAKEUP AFTER MY FACIAL?
Ideally, we prefer that you allow your skin to continue to absorb the nutrients and hydration without makeup. However, putting on makeup after will not harm your face.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO A FACIAL?
Skin care specialists recommend that people have a professional facial about every three to four weeks. Thats how long it takes your skin to move through the full life cycle of skin cell growth .
