Facial treatment maintains and rejuvenates skin health. Facials are excellent for treating specific ailments and are beneficial for skin texture, tone, acne, and appearance. Regular skin treatment can prolong the effects of or delay the need for cosmetic surgery.
Facials are appropriate for men, women, and teenagers, especially those looking to improve the overall health of their skin. Besides the physical benefits, there are also mental benefits as facial treatments are excellent for dealing with stress.
There are several different facial treatments available, depending on your area of concern and desired outcome. For example, some facial treatments target skin concerns such as acne and scarring, while others are designed to combat the signs of aging, such as sun damage or wrinkles. Treatments can range in length from under an hour to 90 minutes or more, depending on the type of treatment and the targeted skin concern.
During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. Depending on the patient’s skin concern, chemical peels can be applied at different depths — a light or medium chemical peel is done to treat fine wrinkles, acne, and uneven skin tone. In contrast, a deep chemical peel, which removes deeper skin cells, targets deep wrinkles, scars, or precancerous growths. Light and medium peels often require repeat treatments, while deep chemical peels generally only need to be performed once.
Chemical peels are not advised for pregnant individuals who have a history (or a family history) of keloid scarring or those who have cold sores.
Microdermabrasion involves using a special, abrasive applicator to gently buff away the outer layer of skin. The procedure can also involve spraying fine particles of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate onto the skin, which are then removed using a suction device. This accomplishes the same goal of abrasion as the first method.
In both cases, microdermabrasion is used to rejuvenate skin by removing the thick, outer layer. This type of facial treatment can be used to address sun damage, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and other skin concerns.
Dermaplaning, also known as microplaning or blading, is a type of skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to remove dead skin cells and hair from your face. This type of treatment results in a smooth, radiant appearance and can treat acne scars, dry or dull skin, fine wrinkles, and sun damage.
Ageless facials are skin treatments that combine several techniques and products to rejuvenate aging skin. This can include chemical peels or microdermabrasion, the application of masks or creams, and laser treatments to combat deep wrinkles and age spots.
Acne facials are any treatment — or combination of treatments — designed to treat moderate to severe acne. Classic acne facials involve steaming, the application of an exfoliating scrub, and the use of a mask, toner, or moisturizer. More intensive treatments may include decongesting treatments, during which an aesthetician will unblock pores with their fingers or with an extracting tool. Microdermabrasion, chemical or enzyme peels.

During this type of treatment, a laser is used to remove the top layer of skin. This type of treatment, also known as resurfacing, can be used to treat acne scars and to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and age spots.
