Flawless Skin Care with Monthly Facials
A facial cleanse exfoliates and nourishes the skin to promote clear, well-hydrated skin. It is sometimes called a “deep-cleansing facial” or or “deep-pore cleansing” facial if extractions are done.
The Basic Steps of a Facial
- Cleansing. A facial begins with a cleansing with cotton pads, or a cleansing brush and a product chosen for your skin type (normal, dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature.)
- Skin Analysis. At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, the skin analysis is done by Dr’s Layke and Danielpour in conjunction with Rebecca Casper (aesthetician and skin care specialist). The doctors cover your eyes and look at your skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp that reveal various skin conditions.
- Exfoliation- using a mechanical, enzymatic or chemical exfoliant. Mechanical and enzymatic exfoliation usually happens while a steam vapor is directed at your face. A chemical exfoliation in high levels is sometimes called a peel can be a stand-alone treatment or part of a full facial treatment. It is generally an “upgrade” and done in a series. Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliating treatment that is more effective than microdermabrasion and has multiple benefits of removing layers of dead skin & vellous hairs while stimulating rejuvenation.
- Extraction of blackheads or whiteheads if necessary. (It can cause broken capillaries and discoloration if done on sensitive skin, or done improperly.) People have different pain tolerance for extractions. They can be uncomfortable, especially on thin or ruddy skin.
- Facial massage using classic strokes to both relax you and stimulate your skin and facial muscles.
- A mask targeted to your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature) and condition. During the facial, our aesthetician will stay in the room and give you a scalp massage or some other service or “upgrade.” Additional servies may include:
High Frequency – to kill bacteria, detoxify skin and promote skin health.
Galvanic current – to infuse skin serums and promote anti-aging
Ultrasonic with LED lights – to soothe skin, penetrate serums, promote collagen & elastin and even skin tone
Vacuum – a light suction is used to invigorate skin’s tissues, promoting health & detoxification
Opal eye infusion – targeted for repairing the delicate eye area, the sonic massager helps infuse serums to tighten skin and reduce puffiness.
- Application of toners and protective creams.
- Post treatment care and instruction and implementation of a skin care regimen for life!
Who Gives A Facial?
A professional facial should be given by a licensed aesthetician with special training in skin care. At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, Rebecca Casper is a licensed medical aesthetician that specializes in flawless skin care with proven, non-abrasive methods.
How often should I get a facial?
It varies from person to person. Ideally, get a facial monthly because that’s how long it takes the skin to regenerate. Try to have a facial at least four times a year, as the season changes. You may need it more frequently if you are trying to clear up a case of acne, especially at the beginning. Otherwise, once a month is plenty. You can overdo it, so make sure you ease into treatments of a medical caliber and only have them done by someone you trust.
