Facials are a multi-functional skin care procedure. They are mentally therapeutic and also possess the ability to target skin conditions like wrinkles, acne, and even dry skin through a custom-tailored application of in-house, medically-based skin care products. Our team of licensed estheticians offer several customized facials in Atlanta, GA to accommodate different skin types and skin conditions. From oily, acneic skin to dehydrated, mature skin, we can customize a facial treatment for you.
After a thorough skin analysis during which you and your esthetician will discuss your skin conditions, we will thoroughly cleanse your skin so that no impurities will be able to impede with your facial rejuvenation results. After cleansing, our estheticians will exfoliate the dead skin cells contributing to a dull complexion. Next, steam will be applied to open your pores and extraction of pore debris will be performed as needed. Following the cleansing, your skin will be dressed with the appropriate corrective serums, treated with a soothing mask, and finished with a protective coat of sunscreen and moisturizer.
To help rejuvenate the appearance of dull, weathered looking skin AYA’s estheticians concentrate on exfoliation and corrective therapies during an anti-aging facial. Often, a fruit enzyme based cranberry or pumpkin buffing cream are used to slough the superfluous cells from the skin’s surface. Most importantly, an AYA anti-aging facial includes consultation with our skin care experts so that you can determine if a change is needed in your skin care regimen or if more intensive wrinkle reduction options such as IPL Photofacial & Phototherapy Treatments may be helpful in attaining your cosmetic goals.
Acne sufferers know that this condition can be aggravated by what’s applied to the skin, which is why AYA’s microfacial treatment focuses on soothing irritated skin while gently removing congestion in the pores. Microfacials include elements of the facial procedure along with elements of microdermabrasion. The combination of the two treatments helps to clear clogged pores while resurfacing the skin to tighten pores and refine the skin’s texture to eliminate the signs of acne.
A moisturizing facial focuses on restoring moisture to dry, dull skin through the use of specific compounds and creams. After a skin analysis to determine which facial is the best fit, one of our estheticians will exfoliate the dead skin that often causes skin to lose its luster and appear dull and dry. After blockage has been removed from pores, a moisturizing mask designed for your skin type is applied to help replenish moisture and encourage the face to produce moisture on its own.
FAQ’s about Customized Facials
Aren’t facials just a feel good treatment? Can they really benefit my skin?
While our customized facials are a great way to pamper yourself, there are benefits other than personal relaxation. The body’s natural process of constantly reproducing and shedding dead skin can sometimes lead to clogged pores and dull-looking skin. A regular facial can benefit the skin by removing dead skin cells that clog pores and applying customized treatment for your particular skin condition.
How many facials will I need before I see results?
You can easily see the results of facials after just one procedure. Immediately after the procedure your skin may appear a bit flushed, but this is a result of the exfoliation and extraction and should subside within 24 hours. How often you should return for a follow-up treatment depends on your skin type, skin conditions present, and your skin care goals. Ask your esthetician during your skin analysis how often you should return. Facials are a great initial treatment for your esthetician to get to know your skin, especially if you’re considering additional procedures like chemical peels or microdermabrasion.
Can facials be combined with other skin care services?
Certain skin care services complement the results of a facial. The acne facial, for example, combines microdermabrasion with a facial. If you are interested in combining procedures, ask your esthetician which procedure(s) would be a beneficial addition to a facial for your particular skin type.
For what skin types are facials beneficial?
Because AYA’s facials are customized to fit your skin type, they can benefit all skin types. Whether your skin is oily, dry, young, mature, etc., a facial can help improve appearance. Our trained and licensed estheticians will perform a skin analysis to determine which procedure and products to use on your skin. The treatments can also be performed on a test area if there are any questions about allergies.
How long does a facial treatment last?
Most facials last around 60 minutes depending on your skin type and the amount of exfoliation and/or extractions required.
Do you use a particular brand of facial?
Because our facials are highly customized to your skin type, there is not one particular brand we use. If you know of any allergies to any products you’ve used before, inform your esthetician before your facial.
