How to Know When It’s Time for a Professional Facial

Some are born with great skin, others achieve great skin with the right products and treatment— but one thing is for sure: skin needs maintenance!

Your skin goes through a 365-day cycle that rinses and repeats itself. Throughout the year, your skin gets exposed to various harmful elements, like extreme weather conditions and environmental toxins.

How to While home skin care products can do wonders, sometimes, it can still be challenging to treat it DIY. When it’s beyond the control of your good old, reliable skin care regimen, it might be high time to pay a visit to a medical spa.

Let’s discuss some skin care facts, so you know exactly when to get a facial!

When to Get a Facial


A pimple here and there is completely normal and treatable at home (but don’t pop them)! However, if these pimples become acne and turn into a full-fledged breakout, you know it’s time for a facial.

Rather than going on a pimple-popping spree, consult a skin care specialist for expert advice. Popping pimples could actually do more damage than good, so put your trust in the right type of facials to battle breakouts.

Redness and Irritation

If you are experiencing redness and irritation, the odds are that you have sensitive skin.

Don’t worry, though, because inflamed skin due to sensitivity is quite a common condition. Aside from using dermis-calming skin care products, it’s also important to get a facial that soothes, rejuvenates, and hydrates the skin.

Facial Puffiness

We all look puffy in the morning, but it usually shouldn’t take long before all that water retention subsides and you get your glow back.

On the other hand, morning puffiness can sometimes last until the afternoon or evening—making you look like you just woke up from a nice nap. So if this happens to you, this is when to get a facial.

The right type of facial can get your face back to its original shape and even improve its firmness and texture.

Dark Under-Eye Circles

Do you rise and shine with dark under-eye circles? We’ve all been there and done that, especially when we’re sleep-deprived.

When dark under-eye circles are too much to handle, schedule some me-time at a medical spa. A facial is just what you need to brighten up your pretty eyes!

Sometimes, there aren’t any particular issues with your complexion, except dullness.

Dull skin that lacks brightness can easily be revitalized with a good facial. You already had that shine—it just needed to be polished.

Flaky Skin

Being in the cold in the midst of the snowfall is a magical thing, but the flakiness that develops on your skin? Maybe not so much. Don’t worry, though. Flaky skin is often a sign of a winter well-spent.

Once the ice thaws, the flakiness might not go so easily. If this is something that you can relate to, it’s a clear sign that you owe yourself a facial.

The Best Types of Facials


The HydraFacial will prove that we should never underestimate the power of water.

Vampire Facial

Another type of facial that does it all is the Vampire facial.

As told by pop culture, vampires never age, and with the help of the Vampire facial, you don’t need to either. This revolutionary skincare solution harnesses the power of a patient’s own growth factors to promote healing or regeneration of the dermis.

These growth factors are prepared via the extraction of a patient’s blood. Afterwards, it is spun in a centrifuge in order to separate the protein and platelet-rich plasma from the other components in the blood.

Next, the extracted growth factors are injected into the area of concern to speed up the healing process of damaged cells and tissue.

The results are naturally younger and healthier skin that makes you feel timeless. Vampire facials offer long-lasting results for up to two years.
