People get facial treatment for different reasons: some people want those horrible blackheads out! Others start taking care of their skin in their 20s to preserve a youthful look. Older people want some help with anti-again regimens. And then there are the people who just want to relax and be pampered.

Why Do People Keep Putting Creams On And Taking Them Off? Why Get Facials Regularly?
It is best to find an experienced, knowledgeable licensed esthetician who has special training in skin care and is knowledgeable, fastidious, and passionate about her work. Legally, a cosmetologist is allowed to give facials, but their primary training is in hair, so they might not be the best choice. There is also a trend toward dual-licensed therapists, where the person is licensed to give both massage and facials. Be on the lookout for this in a resort setting, especially if you’d rather go to someone who gives facials all the time.

How Often Should I Get A Facial?
Variations on the Classic European Facial
Variations on the classic European facial include the mini-facial (a 30-minute treatment that usually skips extractions). Use a line formulated for mature skin, with ingredients like vitamin C, and you have an anti-aging facial. It’s an oxygen facial when a mist of pure oxygen is part of the treatment, or the products are formulated to deliver oxygen to the dermis. It’s a collagen facial (also anti-aging) when special collagen sheets are placed on the skin. An acne facial will pay special attention to extractions. A photo facial is a separate light treatment to achieve specific results like boosting collagen or treating acne.
