Ever feel like your skin needs a complete deep cleaning? Facials are intended for just that. While at-home facials can certainly help your skin, they’re no match for in-office treatments—and if you have sensitive skin or a skin condition like acne, it’s always safer and best to go to professional. Hydrafacial® is an advanced, three-step facial that involves deep cleansing, deep exfoliating, extracting, and hydrating all within one session, making it one of the most effective options for instant facial rejuvenation. Facials are often the go-to choice of brides-to-be and people who have upcoming events when they need their skin to look its most radiant.
Although it’s up to you to decide whether you want to have a facial before the big day (and there’s no definite rule saying that you have to), if you do decide that you want to try facials to give your complexion a makeover, it’s better not to procrastinate. Although it can be tempting to wait until the last minute before trying one, it’s better to not put off getting a facial as to avoid the distress of any post facial breakouts or irritation that might ruin the way you feel on your “big day”. Our skincare experts at Cassileth Plastic Surgery & Skin Care recommend getting a facial at least a few months before a big event to see how your skin reacts to the treatment. Some people have monthly facials in the six months leading up to their event to make sure their skin looks radiant and glowing.
I recently had a one-hour HydraFacial with Katia Kartasheva. Katia explained everything, and described exactly what she was doing and why at each step of the way. Afterwards, she provided guidance on products to help my face stay healthy and protected. I highly recommend Katia's care, and I will become a member. My face is still glowing!
Starting facials at a young age can have numerous long-term benefits for patients. It’s not a bad idea to start having facials during your teen years to keep your pores clear, make you feel more confident about your complexion, and to learn about how to preventatively care for your skin and what products are best for your specific skin type.
The skin constantly renews itself, and the cells have a turnover cycle of 28 days. Having facials more than once a month might be too much for your skin and can cause irritation. However, our skin care experts advise patients to have facials regularly—on a monthly basis is best—rather than as a one-off session. Regular facials allow for gradual improvement of your skin’s tone, texture and clarity, and help to minimize issues like breakouts and dullness from occurring in the future. While results can be seen after just one Hydrafacial®, consistent treatments will ensure long term results and help to train and maintain your skins health and radiance.
It is a known fact that combining treatments yields the best results. Our team of skincare experts recommend getting a Hydrafacial® at least one week prior to a laser resurfacing treatment as it helps to prep the skin and will enhance your results by starting with a clean canvas. If you are having treatments such as BOTOX® or dermal fillers it is best to wait a week before getting a Hydrafacial®.
I received the HydraFacial done by Katia. I cannot express enough about how great my skin looks. It’s glowing, my pores are smaller, and my skin looks so much clearer. She really is amazing and knows exactly what to do to get the results you want. Hands down, the best facial I have ever received.
It should be noted that patients have different professional facials and skin resurfacing alternatives to choose from, including chemical peels. Unlike facials, chemical peels involve placing a solution directly onto the skin, causing it to flake away and reveal healthier, more evenly toned skin. The right choice of facial or chemical peel depends on what kind of skincare concerns you want to treat.
HydraFacial is an award-winning, patented facial technology that consists of a unique multi-step system delivering the benefits of hydra-dermabrasion, deep exfoliation, automated painless extractions, and a power punch of potent antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides to revive, re-texturize, and hydrate your skin. The result is deeply cleansed, smooth, glowing skin!
As with any facial, it is best to not put on any makeup for at least 24 hours after treatment so your skin can breathe and reap the benefits of the facial. Most patients leave the facial with a noticeable dewy, glow that can last for several days post treatment. The HydraFacial is deeply cleansing and exfoliating and the serums used are both powerful and active and can cause some skin purging and possible flaking for some which should resolve within a few days.
Squeeze in this power treatment at lunchtime and go back to work glowing. Perfect before an event or to prep your skin before a laser treatment.
