What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of getting a facial? Do you picture a serene setting where you lay with cucumbers on your eyes and a mask on your face, listening to the calming sounds of a cascading waterfall in the distance?
While a facial treatment can definitely help you unwind, the benefits of getting a facial go far beyond relaxation.
If you’re unfamiliar, a facial is a skin treatment that helps rejuvenate and exfoliate your skin. Even if you diligently take measures to protect your skin every day—for instance, applying sunblock and staying hydrated—there’s only so much you can do on your own to keep your skin healthy and looking fabulous as you age.
At Pura Vida Medical Spa, we offer a range of facials to give your skin that extra boost. When you take the next step in caring for your skin, not only will you get the pampering you need, your skin will enjoy a number of benefits.
Here are three reasons why you should get regular facials at a med spa:
#1. It deep cleans your pores
Though we clean our faces every day, we don’t have the tools and the knowledge that a professional has when it comes to cleaning our face. Think about it this way: We’re encouraged to go to the dentist twice a year to optimize our oral health despite the fact that we brush and floss our teeth multiple times a day. Though we maintain healthy habits on our own, just like with dental visits, a visit to a med spa for facials and professional input from a licensed esthetician multiple times per year will help you maximize your skin’s health and maintain that healthy glow all year round.
#2. It stimulates new cell growth
It goes without saying that facials are good for your skin. But why are they good? Given the fact that our skin is our body’s largest organ and is made up of about 64 percent water, it’s imperative that we treat our skin with the utmost care and provide it with the hydration it needs to remain firm and flawless. Our body takes around 28 days to produce a new, fresh layer of skin to the surface. Once these skin cells reach the epidermis, they flatten and die. A facial, like microdermabrasion, for example, will help stimulate this process by removing the dead skin cells. As a result, your skin will look firmer and younger!
#3. Rest & relaxation
We get it; sometimes you just want to spend some time on your own doing the things that you enjoy. While you can find tons of DIY ideas on Pinterest or through blogs, there’s nothing quite like being pampered at a spa in an environment designed to be relaxing. Many skin irritations can be brought on by stress, and de-stressing with a facial at a med spa is the perfect way to cleanse your face, calm your nerves and enjoy a pampering experience.
We’ll also be able to find the treatment that’s right for you and your skin type. At Pura Vida, we offer our clients a holistic experience—all of our facial treatments include a consultation, skin analysis, exfoliation, deep-pore cleansing with extractions (if necessary), mask, massage and hydration.
Don’t deprive your skin of the care that it deserves. Instead, treat it with a facial to help protect it, brighten your complexion, and minimize your wrinkles because when you look young, you’ll start to feel young, too!
