Isn’t it amazing how fickle skin can be? The more we learn about it, the more complexities reveal themselves. Skin can be damaged or affected by an innumerable variety of factors and can be treated and healed by an almost equal amount. Unfortunately, so much of these things happen on a level that is nigh-unnoticeable. It’s hard to notice any major changes that happen to your skin because they happen so gradually, but like clockwork, the effects of poor skin care began to manifest themselves as people age — those who cared for their skins will be much better off in their later years than those who didn’t.

This is especially true for your face, which is constantly exposed, arguably more than any other part of your body, and packed full of pores. Furthermore, the skin on your face is constantly changing and moving (hopefully from a life of rich laughter) which stresses it over time and makes it more prone to wrinkles.

In this age where we’re learning so much about skin care, the need to get a professional facial is now more pronounced than ever. At Rejuvenation Medi-Spa, we believe in the power that a facial has to work wonders on your skin, and it’s one of the main services we offer to the people of the La Plata and Prince Frederick areas.

However, not everybody has gone in for a facial, and with so many varieties available, it can be difficult and a little intimidating trying to find the professional treatment that’s right for you. In this two-part blog post, we’ll break down what a facial is, and the different types that we offer at Rejuvenation Medi-Spa.

What is a Facial?

A facial, essentially, is a professional medical treatment that’s aimed at preserving, healing, and rejuvenating the skin on your face. Like we mentioned above, there is an endless list of aggressors that can wreak havoc on your skin and complexion. Microscopic dirt and grime can get into your pores, clogging them up; excessive amounts of oil can build up, and even over-the-county beauty products can strip away your skin’s natural protective layers. Let’s not even get into makeup — we could write a whole separate blog post about how that can affect your skin.

The point is, your skin is susceptible to so much and a facial is a quality, professional treatment that’s aimed at treating it.

Why Use Professionals for a Facial Treatment?

A common question about facials is “what’s stopping me from doing it on my own?” It’s not the worst question; what good is a spa when you can just buy products yourself? As professionals in the realm of facial treatments and spa therapy, we would say the answer is “experience and expertise.”

The bottom line is that, as skin care professionals that have studied the science of the skin. Did you know that a lot of skin problems result from the misuse of beauty products that you can buy anywhere? The average woman tries to care for her face in so many ways that problems can occur; whether it’s too much of one type of product, different products mixing together to create an undesirable effect, or using something that’s suited better for a different skin type. We could go on and on, but the point is that we will be able to tell what you need specifically for your skin.

Different Types of Facials for Your Every Need

With that being said, it should be clear now as to why we offer so many different types of facial services at Rejuvenation Medi-Spa — there is a multitude of different treatments that will work different kinds of magic on your ailing face and skin.
