A facial works best when performed by a knowledgeable and experienced aesthetician as part of an ongoing skin care regimen tailored to your specific needs.
All aestheticians are evaluated and hand-picked by Anna Leybovich RN, Aesthetician, who continually reviews and oversees their techniques and results.
The benefits of facials are multifaceted and include:
Types of facial treatments in New York include:
Types of skin facial treatment nyc vary from a simple cleanse, steam and massage for normal skin to deep pore cleansing facials developed for problematic skin to specialty facials for men focusing on damage from shaving to sun damaged skin to acne treatment and everything in between.
Initially, the aesthetician will evaluate your skin, conduct a consultation to discuss your skincare concerns and ask about your diet, water intake, and skincare routine. Based on an analysis of this information, treatment type and product recommendations will be provided.
A thorough cleansing to remove dirt, oil and make-up is conducted prior to starting facial skin treatment.
To determine whether your skin is normal, oily, dry, combination or sensitive, the skin is examined by a magnifying lamp that is brightly lit. This also enables the aesthetician to see blackheads, acne, whiteheads, sun damaged or dehydrated regions.
A machine directing a warm stream infused with chamomile is used on your face resulting in opening the pores and lasts for 10-30 minutes. The open pores enable her to remove any impurities. She will then remove impurities such as blackheads. Whiteheads, because they are covered with a layer of skin, require the use of a sterile needle for extraction.
The application of a mask is the next step. The appropriate mask will be chosen based on whether the skin is dry, oily, combination, mature or sensitive.
At the completion of the facial following the removal of the mask, the aesthetician will share with you what she found, how often to repeat the facial and recommend other skin treatments she feels would be helpful.
Ideally, monthly facials are recommended as it takes this length of time for the skin to regenerate and dead skin cells to develop. If this is not feasible, four times a year as the seasons change is a good rule of thumb; unless you are prone to breakouts or have problems with acne, then more frequent facials are recommended.
At home facials are an extremely important part in keeping your skin beautiful and recommendations will be provided for this essential step.
