Why Should I Consider Facials?

A facial is recommended on a regular basis and can be extremely beneficial to the skin. In fact, a facial should be a part of your regular skin care regiment. Most of our San Diego patients receive a custom facial every three to six months, or as recommended by one of our skin care professionals.

A facial offer many benefits, including:

  • Minimizes and opens clogged pores due to make up and moisturizers
  • Kills bacteria
  • Removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin
  • Rejuvenates and refreshes the skin
  • Reduces future acne breakouts
  • Firms and tones the skin

Our estheticians are certified to deliver the best, most comprehensive skin care designed just for your individual needs.

How Does a Custom Facial Work?

Applying and performing a facial is completed in several steps. After talking to you about your concerns and history with facials, as well as you skin care regiment, one of our estheticians will get a better idea on how to customize a facial just for you.

A facial treatment includes the following steps:

Cleansing

The esthetician will first use a special face cleanser that is medicated and soothing to clean the surface of the skin and remove any bacteria and debris.

Massage

The estheticians will then massage the entire face. This stimulates blood flow to the area and feels extremely relaxing.

Analyzing the Skin

Next, the skin is examined and looked at through a magnifying glass. During this time, the esthetician is trying to determine weather your skin is dry, oily or combination of the two. This allows us to further customize your facial. The esthetician will let you know what he or she finds and what types of treatments and remedies he or she recommends for best skin care for you.

Exfoliation

Once the pores are opened, we use special beads that rub and exfoliate the skin. Exfoliation simply means removal of superficial dead skin cells that can cause clogged pores.

Face Mask

A soothing face mask is applied. The purpose of the face mask is to soothe and remedy the skin, accelerating the healing process after exfoliation and extractions. The mask is usually made of vitamins and antioxidants, which are easily absorbed into the skin as dead cells have already been removed and pores are open, ready to receive the benefits of the facial mask.

Skin Care Recommendations

After this entire process, we will have a good idea of the type of skin you have, the skin issues you are facing and the level of any damage, including sun damage. Based on this vital information, your Avalon Laser esthetician will then help you develop a skin care regiment that will help you will all of your concerns and allow you to take healthy skin to the optimal level.
