27 Jan All About Anti-Aging Facials at Live Skin in Tempe AZ
An anti-aging facial involves ingredients that are targeted to mature skin, which is typically women and men age 35 years and up. The goal of an anti-aging facial is to rejuvenate and renew dry, damaged, and dull skin.
Can I have an anti-aging facial if I’m younger than 40 years of age?
Why do I need an anti-aging facial?
As you age, your skin gets dryer and thinner, due to decreased collagen formation and loss of oil production. Collagen gives the skin a plump, thick appearance, and an anti-aging facial is used to stimulate collagen production. In addition, your face is exposed to the elements, and develops creases and lines due to facial expressions. The anti-aging facial takes away the topmost skin layer, allowing healthy, new cells to form.
What products are used for an anti-aging facial?
The facial will vary, depending on the Medspa, but typical anti-aging facials include:
- Chemical solutions that lead to peeling
- Collagen masks
- Special antioxidant serums, such as vitamin C and peptides
- Hyaluronic acid solutions
What are the steps of an anti-aging facial?
While anti-aging facials vary, the typical steps are:
Step 1 – Cleansing: An anti-aging facial begins with cleansing. The aesthetician uses a cotton pad and moisturizing cleanser to remove all facial makeup and dirt buildup.
Step 2 – Skin analysis: The aesthetician looks at your skin through a magnifying lamp, assessing for broken capillaries, dry patches, age spots, and fine lines. Older, mature skin is less likely to have acne breakouts, but sometimes, there is large blackheads.
Step 3 – Extraction: If blackheads exist, the aesthetician will use a special tool to gently remove them.
Step 4 – Exfoliation: Using a diamond-encrusted tip handheld device, the aesthetician will exfoliate the skin. This device is rubbed across the skin while a steam vapor pours toward the face. If needed, the technician applies a chemical solution that peels (exfoliates) the top layer of skin cells.
Step 5 – Massage: Using classic maneuvers like effleurage, the aesthetician stimulates the skin and facial muscles.
Step 6 – Facial mask: The technician applies a special facial mask to the skin. This is left on for 20-30 minutes.
Step 7 – Cleanse and tone: The aesthetician then removes the mask using a cleanser before applying a cool toner solution.
Step 8 – Moisturize: The final step involves applying a moisturizer serum or cream.
How often will I need an anti-aging facial?
Ideally, you should have an anti-aging facial every month. This facial will stimulate skin cell turnover, and give you a youthful glow. Because exfoliation is done, you can expect a diminished appearance in fine lines and wrinkles.
How effective are anti-aging facials?
Anti-aging facials are very effective, but this depends on the experience and skill of the aesthetician, as well as the quality of the products. For best results, be sure to carry through with a good home skincare regimen. Be sure to choose a Medspa that employs specially trained aestheticians and skincare experts.
