How often should I get a facial? 

In general, Estheticians recommend a facial every three to four weeks—which is how long your skin’s life cycle is. Younger skin rejuvenates quicker than mature skin, so the younger you are, the less often you’ll need a facial. That said, whether you’re looking for an effective acne treatment or you need help for rosacea it's beneficial to receive mild facials more frequently to keep skin balanced.


How do you determine what facial treatments are best for my skin?

An experienced Esthetician will closely examine your skin and ask questions to determine what type of facial is best for you. Be honest about how you take care of it at home. Your facialist is equipped with a range of products and instruments to suit different skin types, tones, ethnicities, and conditions. Let your Esthetician know if you have allergies or are taking medications. Sharing this knowledge upfront will help them determine the most effective type of treatment for you.


What do you recommend for facial aftercare?

After your facial, your skin has just undergone a deep cleanse, so give it a break. Allow your skin to breathe and refrain from applying makeup. Your pores will be more open and therefore more susceptible to bacteria. Allow time for serums, creams and peels to do their work.  


If you underwent a chemical peel, follow your Esthetician’s advice for Chemical peel aftercare to protect your skin from irritation. Stay away from exfoliating treatments and be diligent about sun protection. Finally, no picking or pulling! Be patient and allow for natural exfoliation to occur.


How can I maintain the results of my facial? 

While the effects of a facial aren’t permanent, extending that post-facial glow is possible with the right habits. Here are a few tips to keep your skin looking fresh for days to come.


  • Maintain a regular skincare routine. At the most basic level, cleanse, moisturize and protect your face with mild products that will not irritate fresh skin. Since your face underwent a specialized treatment, avoid products like alcohol-based toners, scrubs and deep exfoliators.

  • Hydration is key. Choose products containing hyaluronic acid to help bind water to the skin and protect its moisture barrier.   

  • Protect your fresh new face. Your skin will be extra sensitive after undergoing a facial. Fresh skin is more susceptible to damage caused by UVA and UVB rays. Wear a hat outdoors and use sun care products containing SPF of 30 or higher every day, rain or shine.  


  • Avoid aggressive skincare products, exfoliating treatments and excess sun

  • Discontinue use of alpha hydroxy acids (like glycolic or lactic acid), beta hydroxy acids (such as salicylic acid), benzoyl peroxide and retinol at least one week before your treatment

  • Stop using any exfoliating products that may be drying or irritating

  • Do not shave, wax or undergo hair removal on the day of your peel



  • In the days following your treatment, use only products recommended by your skincare professional and follow their guidelines for post-procedure care

  • Be diligent about sun protection

  • Allow for natural exfoliation to occur; don’t pick or pull at the skin
