Regular facials can help to optimise skin functioning and improve its appearance. Generally, we recommend clients book in for a treatment once per month for best results. Here’s why…
If you’ve ever been under the guidance of a skin therapist, you’ve probably heard that it is best to have treatments every 4-6 weeks. This timeframe is based on the behaviour of your skin cells.
Every 28 days your skin cells undergo a process of renewal, where the superficial layers of the skin are replaced by new ones. Clinical facial treatments assist this process by loosening the bonds between the old cells to allow easy shedding.
They also help to improve skin functioning and ensure this process is regular. As we age, our natural cell turnover slows down. This can lead to dullness, loss of elasticity, congestion, and dehydration. Regular treatments will help to maintain this cycle to ensure your skin looks and feels its best.
Clinical treatments can also help to maintain the health and integrity of your skin. Techniques such as deep cleansing, exfoliation, and stimulating massage can help to oxygenate, detoxify and revise the skin to function as a young, healthy skin does.
We can also ensure your skin’s barrier is strong and resilient. This top layer of the skin defends your body against environmental stressors while simultaneously protecting your body's critical water balance. Symptoms such as dryness, itching, and inflammation can alert you to a disturbance in this important barrier.
By maintaining your barrier function, you can ensure your complexion is plump, luminous, and youthful now and into the future.
Regular treatments also allow us to target your concerns and ensure you are constantly improving the look and feel of your complexion.
It’s important to note that some advanced treatments, such as our medi-peels, may require preparation with milder peels, facials, or cosmeceutical skincare. This allows us to establish the tolerance of your skin to ensure we never compromise its integrity.
As your skin’s resilience increases, we can adjust the intensity of your treatments to further improve your skin and ensure your results never plateau. This is particularly important for dynamic concerns such as ageing, pigmentation, and acne, as they can often require lifelong management.
REVIEWING YOUR TREATMENTS
Your skin is ever-changing and evolving, which is why your concerns and skin type is likely to change throughout your lifetime. Factors such as genetics, stress, hormones, and diet can affect the skin and impact its health and appearance.
Regular treatments allow us to constantly reevaluate your skin health, treatment plan, and home care to ensure we are able to achieve the best results for you. We are also able to notice any concerns as they arise. Early intervention always leads to the best results, particularly for conditions such as ageing, acne, and pigmentation that tend to worsen over time.
We also love to take progress photos so you can visibly see your skin health improve with each treatment.
If you’re looking to begin your skincare journey, we recommend booking a consultation with our experienced skin therapists. This allows us to get to know you and your skin as well as discuss your concerns and goals. We can provide a treatment plan that incorporates a range of our professional treatments options and cosmeceutical homecare so you can achieve strong, healthy, beautiful skin!
