Mmm...Facials, a luxury everyone should experience! Or is it just a luxury?

Unfortunately most of us don't have the skin we wish to have. If you've never had a facial in Reno, they are by far one of the best skin treatments to help keep you in top notch condition.

Facials not only help your skin stay in optimal condition but they are in fact one of the most relaxing and stress relieving skin procedures available.

By clearing clogged pores, comforting dry and tired skin with hydrating products and procedures you will be amazed and swear you look years younger.

Of course choosing the right facial depends on what your looking to accomplish. A deep clean, moisturize and hydrating or simple stress reduction all have their place.

Following with my promise to offer you valuable and engaging information here are some Questions and Answers I pulled from BeautyHigh.com. I think you will find them helpful.

Everything You Need to Know About Getting a Facial

Laura Benge: The best way to prepare for your facial is to think about what goals you are looking to achieve, i.e. what bothers you about your skin, what issues or concerns you’d like to work on. Allow the aesthetician to do a thorough consultation and make recommendations as to what facial offerings and skin care products will best fit your needs. At Exhale Spa, we like to know what you are using on your skin at home, how often you get facials, ask about any allergies and skin care goals so you can get the best experience possible.

Is there anything you should do to prepare for your facial?

You should stay out of the sun before a facial, ideally up to a week prior. If you want to focus heavily on pore cleansing and extractions, it’s best to schedule your facial for the end of the day when you don’t have to go anywhere. If it is in preparation for a big event, schedule the appointment for a few days before.

Does the kind of facial you book have anything to do with your type of skin? Are there certain facials that are better for certain skin types?

Absolutely, at Exhale Spa we have many different facials on the menu for a reason!  You don’t have to self-diagnose; ask for an initial consultation to help select the correct facial for your skin.

Post-facial, what should people know about recovery time, care of your skin, etc?

A bit of that is dependent on skin sensitivity and the intensity of the facial. The basic after effect of a facial is a rosiness to the skin that can last 1-2 hours. Many people want to know if they can apply makeup after a facial, and yes, you can, but  it’s a real treat for your skin to have a chance to breathe and soak up the effects of the treatment. When someone can leave a treatment “bed ready” so they can rest and experience the maximum effect, that’s ideal.

About how often should someone come in for a facial to see good results? Any suggestions of how to care for your skin in between?

That’s dependent on individual goals. If someone has chronic breakouts or hyperpigmentation, they may need to be seen every week for a series, and every 4-6 weeks after improvements have been made. Seeing someone every month ensures skin issues are treated regularly. Caring for your skin in between visits is very important – a good home care regimen is crucial. I always say we can work together: you’ll leave here glowing, but it’s up to you to use skin care products that encourage the longevity of the facial.
