Facials – benefits and insights

Facials are one of the most important aspects of skincare. By regularly receiving facials, you can keep your skin looking healthy and hydrated. Facials can also help to prevent and treat a variety of skin issues, including acne, dryness, and wrinkles.

Facials are typically performed by a skincare specialist, who will clean your skin and then apply a variety of products or use medical esthetic equipment such as RF technology or other laser technology specifically designed to improve your skin’s health. At Relaxing Wellness, our skin care specialists customize facials to meet your individual needs.

If you’re looking for healthy and beautiful skin, facials are a great option. They are relaxing, affordable, and effective – so why not add them to your self-care routine.

How often should you get a facial?

The general consensus is that getting a facial once a month is optimal. Unless you follow a skin care protocol for a specific issue, getting a facial more than once a month is not recommended and it will not do you any good, in fact it could cause problems.

It takes 3-4 weeks for your skin to go through the full cycle of skin cell growth and exfoliation so there is no need to rush and get a facial more than once a month.

Some like to get a facial every 2 months or have an even longer break in between, it all depends on skin type, age, and your particular skin care needs. If you wear makeup and/or are exposed to an environment that is adverse to your skin you might want to talk it over with your skin care therapist and establish a more rigorous routine.

Setting those factors aside, the general recommendation is for a facial every three to four weeks or once a monthThat’s how long your skin’s life cycle is. After three or four weeks, your skin cells grow back. Facials help this process and assure your skin always glows.
