As an Esthetician and skin professional it is my duty to inform my clients and the general public of the importance of a monthly facial or skin care treatment. Unfortunately alot of clients will wait until they encounter a skin concern (weird breakouts, dry itchy skin, dark spots, etc.) or have an upcoming special event before coming in for a facial. While this is totally OK, these frustrating problems can often be preempted by proper monthly facials and counseling on the correct at-home regimens.
Primarily, when you think Esthetician, think preventative care and beauty.
Facials or skin treatments are recommended on a monthly basis. This is to ensure you are helping your skin achieve maximum results in its monthly cell renewal tasks. The more efficient the skin can be in performing its immunity tasks, the more healthy and beautiful your skin will be. Monthly facials help do just that!
1. Deeply Cleanses
I cannot tell you how many times a client has come into my clinic and said "I have already removed my makeup for you" and through the process of cleaning and analyzing the skin I will find pores clogged with "Long Wear 24 hour Foundation". It is not the client's fault!! The average women spends about 2 minutes cleaning her face, during your facial I spend 10 minutes cleansing the skin.
Exfoliation is a well know skin care term. However, did you know on average your skin attempts to Exfoliate its self every 28 days? As we age that 28 day rate increases with each year, so my 40 year old women your skin takes about 40 days to exfoliate isn't self. A facial helps bring the skin back into the 28 day range by given the skin the nutrients it needs to perform at its optimal level.
3. Increases Circulation
After the age of 25 circulation in the body drops by 1% a year, so when you are 40 years old you have 15% less blood flow than you did in your twenties. Blood Circulation is the life source of your skin's nutrients, when you skin in getting less food it will produce less collagen and elastin. A facial helps increase the circulation therefore will help increase the repair and immune functions of the skin.
4. Increases Metabolism/Detox
As we age our bodies metabolism slows do to fluctuation of hormones and circulation. This can result in toxins that build up in the body causing common skin condition such as acne or under eye puffiness. Facials help to move Lymph fluids to the nodes where the waste can be processed and disposed of properly.
5. You Deserve It aka Reduces Stress

Why do you need an Esthetician?
Many times clients seek out estheticians to perform treatments that fight the signs of aging including, fine lines and wrinkles as well as other concerns including dry skin, eczema, or acne. Other clients make appointments with their favorite esthetician to enjoy a rejuvenated or refreshed complexion. However, all clients enjoy a trip to the esthetician for a relaxing experience.
All of my life, I knew what society expected of me. I was expected to get a good education, good paying job and get married to have couple of kids; then I would be deemed what society calls successful - of course I did. I was fresh out of high school and knew exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up; an accountant. I was good with numbers, very organized and knew, I would be able to get a good job. So, being who I'm, I attacked school and work, only to find that 10 years into a great desk job that I didn’t really feel like I was making a difference.
I mean, I did everything I was supposed to do. Why didn’t I feel successful in my career?

I remember growing up and always wanting to have hair and skin like the girls on TV. You never saw them with a pimple or a blemish. I was green with envy. I am telling you when I was a teenager, my skin was awful. I remember, I once got a huge pimple on the center of my forehead, I looked like a Unicorn. Because of my older sisters, I have always used a quality skin care products and was taught the proper steps for caring for my skin externally early on. I truly believed my acne prone skin was all do to hormones and my body changing. I had given up and decided I would have skin like the girls on TV when I was done with puberty, had regular periods, and didn't live at home. All of which happened in my early twenties...kind of.
I am an esthetician, wife & mom that has a love affair with Skincare & Cosmetics.
