In most circumstances, how often you get a beauty treatment is a matter of preference, but when it comes to facials, there are real skin-care benefits to going with some regularity.
If you’re someone who has the means and uses trips to the spa as a way to unwind and destress, then there’s no harm in treating yourself as often as once a week – given that it’s not an invasive procedure like dermal needling, and your skin can handle it, that is.
“Facials are deep-cleansing treatments usually performed by aestheticians that provide extraction, hydration, and moisturisation of the skin. They are best performed in series and should be done every four to six weeks to achieve maximum efficacy and consistent effects.
There are a few factors that can change the once-a-month recommendation, like your skin type. A client with acne, for example, may go every one-to-two weeks for professional Medik8 chemical peels and focus on extractions. Generally, those with oily and acne-prone skin can tolerate facials with more frequency than those with sensitive or dry skin.
Additional factors that can change how often you get a facial are the season, the type of treatment, and if you have a special event coming up like a wedding or event. As soon as you get engaged, schedule your first facial and plan to go monthly, this way you can find an aesthetician who understands your skin. Once your wedding is about one to two months away, going more frequently will yield the best results.
The reason getting a facial monthly or bi-weekly is so beneficial boils down to your skin’s regeneration process. Since skin cells regenerate every 14-28 days, it’s important to remember to cycle treatments so that you are impacting the skin cycle when it matters most. One of any skin procedure is a treat, but three is a treatment. In other words, the long-term effects of performing the procedure on a regular basis provides more impact than doing something one time and never repeating it.
Medik8 Facials can yield an array of skin-care benefits, from skin rejuvenation, deep cleansing, and eliminating clogged pores to boosting hydration and evening out discolouration like pigmentation and acne marks, but that doesn’t mean that you’ll never see results if you can’t obtain monthly treatments due to financial reasons.
If I have a client who has a budget constraint, I have the Afterpay Facility that enables the my client to a pay off the treatments and Medik8 Skincare products at Mojo Beauty. The more often you get facials, the more informed you will be about your skin and which treatments and at-home products will be best for your specific skin type and conditions.
