The Importance of Facials
Getting a facial is commonly seen as something you do only when you want to treat yourself, or as a luxury service whose benefits are reserved for only the rich and famous who can afford it. We, at Korcare, look at it a bit differently. We make facials a priority!
A staggering amount of pollution, dirt, grime, and dead skin accumulates on the face. This build up is an unavoidable fact of life. We can do the best we can to keep the skin clean, but it is not always enough. Many advocates compare getting a facial to going to the dentist. We brush our teeth, floss when we remember, and still acknowledge the importance of going to the dentist for a regular deep clean. Like our teeth, the skin needs to be evaluated and cleansed by a trained professional every so often to maintain a healthy complexion. An esthetician should be seen as the dentist for our skin. Getting facials on a regular basis, even once every few months or year, is ideal.
Makeup and Skincare Products: After receiving a facial, makeup goes on more smoothly and evenly. You may be surprised at how little, if any, is needed. An esthetician deeply cleanses and exfoliates the face, allowing all your products to fully absorb and do their jobs properly. Having your skin examined by a professional can also teach you a lot about what products are appropriate for your skin type. Eminence is one of our favorite product lines! On your next visit, be sure to ask your esthetician about her recommendations.
Anti-aging Treatments: Facials are the best anti-aging treatment around. Treating yourself to a facial every so often will decrease your chances of having to dish out money for expensive procedures and injections. Facials improve the skin’s tone, texture, and elasticity by counteracting the damaging effects of air pollution and sun exposure. Try our 60 min. Anti-Aging Facial!
Refreshed and Relaxed Skin: With each facial, a facial massage is often incorporated. The massage alone works wonders on tired, wrinkled skin. An esthetician is trained on how to appropriately massage the face. Believe or not, certain areas of the face need to be massaged in different ways. If done incorrectly, a massage can do more harm than good, and lead to sagging skin. The massage also encourages lymphatic drainage as it flushes out toxins while promoting circulation. Our Signature Facial is sure to do the trick!
Skin Cell Renewal: One of the most important steps of a facial is exfoliation. Having your skin exfoliated by a professional often means getting microdermabrasion or having a peel to help remove dead skin. This part of the facial process helps jump start cell turnover, encouraging the growth of new, healthy cells. Regular exfoliation by a professional will work wonders are those looking to diminish the appearance of acne scars.
Noticeable and Instant Results: The best part about getting a facial is that the results are instant. Rarely do you come across a skin treatment or product that lives up to your high expectations. After just one facial, you will see an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin.
