When you want to practice destressing and caring for your skin at the same time, it's time to consider investing in a great facial. Here are a few facial services to consider if you want to lower your stress levels before the holidays.
When you want to eliminate hyperpigmentation and dark spots from your face, a brightening facial is going to be the perfect treatment option for you. Not only is the treatment incredibly relaxing, but it will help reduce the appearance of dark spots and any hyperpigmentation on your face. In some cases, a brightening facial may include the use of a chemical peel or Vitamin C treatment as part of the procedure. Both of these cosmetic dermatology services are designed to help your skin be its absolute brightest. They can also help reduce signs of sun damaged skin if that's something you're concerned about.
If you're suffering from pre-holiday acne and need a chance to relax and heal your skin, an acne facial might be just what you need. An acne facial is composed of a few different elements. First, you'll receive a deep cleansing treatment to remove any traces of dirt or oil from your skin. After that, gentle steam is used to soften your pores and pave the way for your dermatologist to perform extractions. Thanks to the steam, it should only take light pressure to extract most of the sebaceous material from your pores. It's also important to note that if you have a lot of blackheads, your dermatologist likely won't extract all of them in one session. Then again, going back for another acne facial after such a relaxing experience might just be at the top of your to-do list. Your skin will look amazing and your confidence level will definitely improve.
If combating wrinkles is at the top of your priorities list, then an anti-aging facial is going to be perfect for you. Anti-aging facials typically involve ingredients like collagen, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid, which are all incredibly helpful in creating that youthful smoothness and glow to your skin. This kind of facial will also typically involve exfoliation, different masks, and serums with antioxidants to help you get the most out of the experience. You'll leave feeling -- and possibly looking -- like a whole new you!
Lymphatic massage is one of the most relaxing parts of any facial experience. This massage helps move fluid out of our face and into your lymph nodes, where your immune system kills harmful pathogens. While this isn't a typical massage, it's still a really relaxing one. During this process, light pressure will be used to mimic the action of lymph vessels and help move the fluid through your lymph nodes and out of your face.
Investing in a great facial is one of the best ways to improve your physical and mental well-being. If you're curious about what facials can do for your skin and mind before the holidays, set up an appointment at SE Dermatology Specialists today.
