We at Joules Medspa & Laser Center and Skincare specialists all over recommend a professional facial about every three to four weeks. Why? That’s how long it takes your skin to move through the full life cycle of skin cell growth and exfoliation. 28 days to be exact. A facial helps that process along.
Every time the skin is exfoliated, skin cells rapidly go into a repair mode to stimulate new cells, which leave the skin fresh, firm and glowing. When you receive one of our medical grade facials on a regular basis, your skin never gets a chance to be lazy. Instead, its always repairing and producing new skin, helping you maintain the after-treatment glow all month long.
We always recommend that clients have facials once a month, because nothing you do at home can replace professional attention. Also, your skin is doing different things depending on the season and your lifestyle, so having a monthly check-in with a professional ensures you are getting the best treatment.
It’s important to note that because our skin cell turnover cycle is 28 days long, getting a professional facial more than once a month could be irritating to the skin. There are exceptions to this rule, though, so it’s always best to follow the protocol recommended by a professional. This also can be a concern when patients take their skin care into their own hands.
Other factors can be the exception to the rule. Skin Type: There are many different skin types—normal, dry, or oily. If you have oily, acne-prone skin with breakouts, blackheads, and clogged pores, you should get a facial at least every month, perhaps more frequently, until it is cleared out and calmed down.
The internal debate… we know you have thought this before your first facial.
“Why would I overpay someone to apply products similar to what I have on my bathroom counter?”
The benefit of seeing us at Joules lies not only having access to our expertise from treating all different skin types, but also the arsenal of products we have. Professional facial products offer more active ingredients along with years of proven scientific research created specifically to address skin issues and produce results. Also, as many people face more than one issue concurrently, it’s best to rely on the knowledge of a skin care professional to address facial treatments and home care use, to avoid any contradictions. In addition, the products and equipment used are professional medical grade equipment.
We understand many do not have unlimited funds at their disposal for a monthly facial. With that in mind, we offer many maintenance facials at an affordable cost. And affordable meaning, we have treatments as low as $40 – where other places are charging over 3x that. Also, we have a skincare club. This not only saves you money but keeps you accountable for getting that monthly facial in and depending on how your skin is behaving, you have several treatment options to choose from. Ask us about our skin care club and what would be the best option for you.
