Facials Q & A

What is a facial?

A facial involves professional care for your complexion, and the procedure usually begins with deep cleansing. You may undergo extractions to address whiteheads and blackheads, gentle massage, exfoliation, and then the application of healing serums and moisturizers to provide extra hydration.

An anti-aging facial includes all the steps of a basic facial but includes ingredients that are targeted to mature skin. The goal is to slow aging, brighten your complexion, and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. You can have an anti-aging facial when your skin is beginning to show the effects of gravity and sun or pollution exposure -- usually after age 40 -- but many people benefit from anti-aging facials in their late 20s and 30s.

What effects does aging have on the skin?

As you get older, your skin becomes thinner and drier. You also produce less collagen and elastin, compounds that make your skin appear tight, taut, strong, and hydrated. Your complexion may appear duller because healthy, new cells take longer to turn over. Exposure to the elements can exacerbate the lines and creases that naturally form in your skin due to expressiveness and the loss of tightness.

What kinds of ingredients are included in an anti-aging facial?

An anti-aging facial might include mild chemical peels, collagen peptides, and special serums that contain antioxidants or hyaluronic acid, a natural compound your skin produces that attracts water to cells and boosts hydration.

How effective are anti-aging facials?

Anti-aging facials provided by expert aestheticians, such as Mena and the team at Boost Beauty Medispa, can be very effective, as they contain some of the highest quality ingredients and are skillfully applied. Anti-aging facials can brighten your complexion, so you have the radiance of youth, and improve circulation to enhance collagen production and cell renewal.

Anti-aging facials performed in conjunction with other anti-aging treatments, such as Botox®, microneedling, and dermal fillers, may offer the best results.
