No longer the exclusive domain of Hollywood’s rich and famous, expert facial treatments are widely available to everyone at reasonable prices. While you might already cleanse and hydrate your skin using off-the-shelf products as part of your daily routine, none of them can come close to offering the benefits of specialized facial treatments by a professional therapist.
Because your face is exposed all the time, it takes everything that life has to throw at it. Contaminants and pollution in the air compounded by rain wind and ultraviolet radiation can have adverse effects on the surface and indeed the deeper layers of your skin. Your natural collagen can be damaged by such things as carbon emissions that can cause dehydration, pigmentation and wrinkles.
This kind of damage goes deep and it eventually becomes necessary to seek professional treatment in order to retain your natural glow and combat environmental effects.
Some of the best treatments currently available include:
- Envy Facial
- Laser Treatments
Currently an extremely popular treatment, Hydrafacial is an easy and therapeutic method of loosening pores and removing bacteria while Envy Facial is a 3 in 1 system for better complexion and hydration, and laser rejuvenation stimulates collagen in order to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles.
Hydrafacial – Deep Cleaning
One treatment that you need to be aware of is the current popular trend used by celebrities and beauty enthusiasts alike is the simple, easy yet amazing treatment that comes with the new technology known as Hydrafacial. Hydrafacial is extremely popular because of its instant results and quick method. The treatment requires no injections or surgery but offers results similar to more complex and invasive procedures.
The technology works through a 3-step process using a mechanical wand to first remove dead skin cells and sebum (which causes spots), then the wand gently sucks out any remnants of dead skin, oil and blackheads, and finally, treatment creams are applied to the face for nourishment and hydration.
The results are impeccable, leaving your face feeling unbelievably clean and looking radiant for weeks until another treatment is needed.
Envy Facial – 3 in 1 Treatment
Another popular treatment is Envy Facial, which while quite similar to HydraFacial offers a completely different result. Envy Facial is also popular because of its relatively low impact procedure, quick completion time, and non-invasive method that results in a volumized and hydrated skin texture that would otherwise require more expensive and invasive procedures involving injections and downtime.
The Envy Facial process involves exfoliation, extraction, and infusion while also being a recognized safe treatment for damaged skin cells without exacerbating any existing conditions. First, the skin is exfoliated while at the same time extracting excess dead skin cells and also applying nourishment treatments to the face before the skin has a chance to react and clog its own pores backup which limits the skin’s ability to take on extra treatments.
The procedure effectively leaves skin radiant, volumized, and deeply cleaned of any harmful substances and has been shown to work well for damaged skin cells and reducing redness.
Laser Treatments – Gets Below the Surface
There are many uses for lasers, from reading optical disk drives, guiding missiles, and essentially burning things. But while using lasers on your skin might sound horrifying, the highly specialized procedures are completely harmless and relatively painless. Using infra-red lasers which won’t cause pain, pulses of light are able to penetrate to the layers beneath the surface of your skin rather than apply a treatment to the outer layers as with more traditional methods.
Because lasers can get to your subsurface layers and have an effect there, they are able to reach materials that outward-facing treatments usually cannot and can therefore provide amazing results, especially when used in conjunction with traditional treatments. As with the other treatments mentioned, laser treatments are also non-invasive, quick, and easy with no downtime and the heat from the laser is able to stimulate the underlying collagen of your face which causes it to tighten.
A tighter natural collagen layer results in younger-looking skin as the appearance of wrinkles is greatly reduced making this an excellent choice over collagen injections.
These are just some of the excellent treatments available and while they aren’t bargain-basement cheap, they aren’t horrifyingly expensive either. All of them are relatively painless and some parts of facials can be very therapeutic and relaxing, unlike other skin treatments that can be invasive.
While all of these are extremely effective as a standalone and regular treatment, you will see magnificent results when taking in all of these treatments together for a complete facial makeover with long-lasting results.
