Benefits and Risks of Facials
If your goal in getting a facial is just to be pampered, chances are good that you’ll find what you’re looking for because there is no downside. People who have had facials often report feeling relaxed after the treatment has finished. For others, a facial treatment is primarily a way to improve the look of their skin. The body’s natural processes can dull facial skin. Your skin constantly sloughs off dead cells. These cells can clog pores and give the skin an aged look. Daily exposure to the sun and other elements also take a toll on the skin. Facial Treatments are believed by many to fix these common skin problems. Exfoliation, with astringents, masks or peels, can reach deep into the skin’s upper layer to strip away dead skin cells and reveal newer cells underneath.
In addition to the potential benefits, a facial, like most other treatments, isn’t without risks. For example, you might have an allergic reaction to some of the products being used or find that they increase breakouts on your skin. If you have never have had a facial, it is important to have a detailed skin consultation before you begin your first one to avoid any potential side effects.
