After a Long Hot Summer, Enjoy a Deep Cleaning Facial
Give your face the treatment it deserves after a long hot summer by indulging in a deep cleaning facial. A deep cleaning facial will help to rejuvenate and refresh your skin from the summer’s sun damage as you head into fall and winter. The dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute have the scoop on what a deep cleansing facial entails and its benefits.
What is a Deep Cleaning Facial?
A deep cleaning facial will help you achieve beautiful glowing skin. After a long, hot summer in the sun, this facial can help reverse any damage that may have occurred. When sun damage occurs, it strips our face of its natural moisture resulting in dry skin. When sun damage occurs year after year, our face can begin to lose its elasticity and result in fine lines and wrinkles. Even if you don’t visibly see the sun damage, such as a sunburn, this facial can help moisturize and rehydrate your skin, and smooth out its surface as you head into the colder months.
It can be done as a standalone treatment or combined with other facial treatments such as dermaplaning or microdermabrasion. Keep in mind that unlike other facials, a deep cleaning facial is not for every skin type. Since it is a harsh treatment, those with sensitive skin should avoid this kind of facial. Though it is especially helpful for those with acne-prone or oily skin.
The treatment begins with steam to help open the pores. Next, a tweezer-like tool is used to remove clogged pores, blackheads, and whiteheads. A pinching sensation may occur as each is removed. Then, a deep pore cleansing treatment is performed to smooth out the skin’s surface as well as the deeper layers of skin. There are minimal side effects of a deep cleansing facial, but may include redness that will go away after one day or so. A deep cleansing facial can be done up to two times per month, depending on your skin type and how it reacts to the treatment. The treatment results in many benefits.
Benefits of a Deep Cleaning Facial
When you get a deep cleansing facial you are bound to reap its many benefits. All patients will experience exfoliated skin, rejuvenated and rehydrated skin, and a healthy glow. Some other benefits are based on your skin type, but most apply to all receiving the treatment and include:
- Oil, clogged pores, blackheads, and whiteheads removal
- Smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles
- Clearing up acne
While the deep cleansing facial is great for all the benefits mentioned above, it is also a way to practice self-care and to destress. It is important to remember to take care of yourself and your skin and a deep cleansing facial can help in both those areas. Taking care of your skin consistently can help you achieve a younger look and healthy skin.
