WHAT ARE FACIALS?
A home skin care routine with good products can help maintain a healthy, radiant complexion. But regardless of your personal skin care regimen, individuals of all ages can benefit from the glowing results of a professional facial. Using special products selected to meet the concerns and needs of your complexion, our talented aesthetic team is pleased to offer this customized treatment to enhance the tone and texture of your skin. After a consultation to assess the quality of your skin and any possible damage, the best medical-grade products and facial techniques will be chosen to rejuvenate your skin. To elevate your results, you can enhance your facial by adding on a complementary treatment, like microdermabrasion, a chemical peel, or an injectable filler. Set up your one-on-one at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery to speak to a skin care specialist and achieve healthy, glowing skin.
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a technique that is often incorporated into facial treatments at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery. This method involves utilizing a special instrument to gently exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, removing dead cells and fine vellus hairs (also known as peach fuzz). Dermaplaning is a safe and effective noninvasive service that can smooth the texture of your skin, as well as brighten your complexion for a radiant, clear glow. It can also reduce the appearance of certain facial imperfections, such as wrinkles, dark spots, and acne scars.
WHO CAN GET FACIALS?
Facials by the professionals at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery are suitable for patients of all skin types and ages because they are tailored to address each individual's unique needs and concerns. Often, facials are used to target the early signs of aging (such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dry patches), improve the look of sun-damaged skin (including dark spots or uneven tone and texture), deep clean (acne and clogged pores), and rejuvenate dull and sallow skin. Facials can be customized to help teens and adults with chronic conditions, like acne outbreaks, rosacea, and sensitive skin. The effects of a professional facial may be enhanced when combined with a similar service, like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or injectable wrinkle treatment.
HOW ARE FACIALS DONE?
After your custom treatment plan has been designed based on your skin's condition and concerns, you will be asked to relax in one of our private treatment rooms as your facial is performed. Every facial treatment will be personalized to meet your needs, but nearly all facials will begin with a deep cleaning to eliminate any dirt, oil, and makeup. After the skin is cleaned, steam is often used to open clogged pores so whiteheads and blackheads can be easily extracted. This is usually followed by an exfoliation treatment, either done by hand or with another technique (such as microdermabrasion or chemical peel). A mask or serum will then be massaged into the skin for deep nourishment. Finally, an SPF moisturizer selected for your skin type will be smoothed on to protect the skin from UV damage following the treatment.
What to Expect
Following your customized facial, you may see mild redness and irritation, but this should subside naturally in 12 – 24 hours. Most patients will see visible improvements in the appearance and feel of their complexion immediately after their treatment. To maintain the benefits of your custom facial, please talk to one of our skilled team members about developing a home skin care regimen and ask how often you can schedule regular facials at Prestige Institute for Plastic Surgery. It may be beneficial to learn more about other facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
