Think seeing an esthetician for regular facials is an indulgence? Think again.
In actuality, the treatments should be considered an essential part of your skincare regimen.
“Getting facials on a regular basis can help keep your skin exfoliated and hydrated,” said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.
The multi-step facial treatment includes cleansing, exfoliating and steaming the skin, as well as an extraction to clear clogged pores.
During the exfoliation step in the facial process, dead skin cells and debris that can clog pores are sloughed away.
“Removing that can help promote new cell growth,” Malinowski said.
And it’s always best to leave any needed extractions to the professionals who use a specific technique to remove blackheads in order to prevent scarring.
Additionally, during the treatment the esthetician can also see what is lacking in your regimen to help keep your skin healthy.
Several facial varieties are available at Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.
“We also offer HydraFacial and microdermabrasions,” Malinowski said.
The latter, recommended for those with sun damage, fine lines, and open and closed comedones, is a deep exfoliation treatment. Using a powerful electronic vacuum, high-grade micro crystals are sprayed across the surface of the skin through a pressurized wand.
The HydraFacial exfoliates and extracts, and serums are infused in the skin. The treatment can improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, elasticity and firmness, skin tone and texture, brown spots, oily and congested skin, and large pores. Included in this service is lymphatic drainage which can reduce fluid retention and flush toxins from the body.
