A facial is a cosmetic treatment with multiple steps that has a variety of uses. A younger person might get a facial in order to get rid of blackheads, while an older person may want to preserve a youthful appearance. Many people simply find facials relaxing. At the Georgia Center for Female Health, our customized facials are tailored to meet the client’s specific needs and skin type.
Different Skin Types
In order to effectively customize the facial, our Aesthetician will need to first examine the client’s skin. Different skin types are associated with different problems and, therefore, need different treatments.
“Normal” skin has good elasticity and tone. The oils within it are well-balanced, so the skin is neither oily nor dry.
Dry skin feels rough, and it can also itch and be flaky. It is less elastic than normal skin, so it is more susceptible to wrinkles. Exposure to the sun or wind can make dry skin worse.
Oily skin tends to look shiny or greasy, and it is the type most vulnerable to acne. People with oily skin also tend to have blackheads and/or large pores on their nose.
Combination skin is the most common type, and it consists of patches of normal and oily skin. A person with combination skin may have oily skin on their nose and forehead, but normal skin elsewhere.
What Does a Facial Involve?
The details of each facial treatment vary from person to person. However, our Aesthetician will usually start by thoroughly cleansing the client’s skin. Steam may be used to soften any whiteheads or blackheads before they are extracted. The Aesthetician may choose any of several different methods to exfoliate the client’s skin. During this part of the facial, dead skin cells are removed.
The Aesthetician may then apply a facial mask tailored to the client’s skin type and condition. There are many types of facial masks, and they can be made with a wide range of ingredients. Near the end of the facial, various serums, moisturizers or toners can be applied to the skin.
