Many people wait until they have a visible skin concern or disorder before booking a facial in hopes that a single treatment will provide immediate results. The truth is that most skin issues can be managed or avoided all together with a proper at-home regimen and regular professional facials. Consider the regular visits you make to the doctor, dentist, hair salon or gym to prevent and maintain your health and appearance. The same attention and commitment are necessary to maintain optimal skin health to address and prevent common skin disorders such as acne, hyperpigmentation and visible signs of aging. Regular visits to a skilled aesthetician for a professional facial can provide tremendous, short and long-term benefits to the health of your skin and overall wellbeing.
A young, healthy epidermis matures and renews itself approximately once per month. This turnover function, known as cell mitosis, plays and important role in the health and function of the skin’s protective barrier, as well as its overall health and appearance. The turnover time for cell mitosis remains relatively consistent until around age 50, this is when it dramatically slows. Visible signs of ageing, such as a fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, hyperpigmentation and acne are just a few skin disorders that can be attributed to malfunctioning skin renewal and turnover process.
Aging skin exhibits features such as wrinkling, loss of elasticity and volume, rough texture, uneven tone and hyperpigmentation. Under-active cell mitosis and desquamation of the stratum corneum are factors that lease to visible signs of ageing.
Pigment disorders can also become more noticeable and prominent during the slowed renewal process. Pigmented keratinocytes are typically shed with regular epidermal turnover. However, if the turnover rate declines, they will remain apparent on the skin for longer. Conversely in acneic skin, overactive skin cell production is often seen in combination with overactive sebum production. When natural desquamation process is not able to keep up with the overproduction of skin cells follicles become clogged with thickened sebum and excess skin cells.
These are just a few reasons it is recommended to receive a professional facial once per month to maintain healthy skin. Professional monthly facials provide controlled thorough exfoliation to help regulate under and overactive cell renewal and turnover, along with many other benefits discussed below to achieve and maintain optimal skin health and a youthful appearance. Keep in mind, if you are looking to address and treat a particularly chronic or advanced skin disorder or concern, an initial series of weekly or bi-weekly treatments maybe necessary before transitioning to monthly treatments for maintenance.
