How frequently should you schedule facials?

  • Post category:Default

“How to get better skin?” is a commonly asked question. Alongside using skin care products, sun protection, and adopting healthy habits, incorporating regular facials is a key secret to maintaining healthy skin.

How frequently should you schedule facials?

The frequency primarily depends on your skin type, budget, and schedule. It is generally advised to have a facial 1 – 2 times every month. For individuals dealing with acne or unstable skin conditions, it is recommended to have facials every two weeks. Once the skin stabilizes, you can switch to a monthly maintenance routine. It is advisable to seek advice from our consultant before starting your facial regimen.

Skin metabolism cycle

Typically, adults aged 20 to 40 have a skin metabolism cycle of 28 days. Babies, due to their faster metabolism, experience a skin renewal cycle of around 14 days. As individuals age, the skin renewal cycle extends to 60 to 90 days.

Elastin and collagen levels decrease gradually as we age. When collagen levels decrease, the skin’s structure weakens, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines. To combat skin aging, it is crucial to stimulate collagen production.

The advanced BTL EXILIS Ultra 360 utilizes a combination of radio frequency and ultrasound to penetrate the deepest skin layer. This treatment can encourage the dermis to generate more collagen and elastin, aiding in reversing the signs of aging by boosting skin elasticity and hydration from within.

Treatment effect:

  • Effectively reduce wrinkles
  • Reduce eye bags and eye lines

4 Tips to follow after getting a facial

(1)Keep skin hydrated 
After a facial, the skin’s underlying cells become more active, leading to potential itching and redness in sensitive areas like the cheeks and forehead. Refrain from scratching to prevent skin damage and opt for a gentle moisturizer to calm allergic reactions.

(2)Avoid heavy skin care products
Steer clear of skincare products containing irritating components to give your skin ample rest.

(3)Minimize makeup usage
After a facial, the skin will be more receptive and active, making it easier to absorb products. Applying makeup immediately after a facial can hinder the skin’s repair process.

(4)Maintain skin cleanliness
Skin care products used during treatments are nutrient-rich. It is essential to continue a daily cleansing routine to eliminate impurities, keep the skin clean, and restore the skin’s water-oil balance.
