For many women, the face is the focal point of confidence – but it’s hard to feel confident about your beauty when your skin is facing challenges like hyperpigmentation, acne, sun damage, dryness, uneven tone, and more. Fortunately, there are ways you can promote better skin health and appearance. At Bella Tu Medspa in Nyack, NY and New City, NY we know that facials can be a pivotal point of your skincare so you can achieve all of your beauty goals.
Facials: How Long Do the Results Last?
A facial is one of the oldest treatments in the world for good reason – the results of this treatment can last for several weeks and enhance the tone, texture, and overall appearance of your skin. Usually, the results of the facial will last for about four to six weeks for most skin types.
Of course, the specific facial treatment you use will influence how long your results last, as well as the steps you take after your treatment to take care of your skin. For many people, the results of a professional facial can last longer than one month.
What Are Your Facial Treatment Options?
At Bella Tu Medspa, you will have several treatment options to consider. We offer a wide range of treatments to address a variety of skin concerns for people of all ages, skin tones, skin types, aesthetic goals, and even wellness goals. Our collection of treatments includes:
- Bella Tu Classic Facial
- Vibradermabrasion with Infusion
- Laser Facial
- Acne Facial
- Gua Sha Jade Stone Facial
- BT Nano Microcurrent Facial
The ideal facial for you will depend on your unique aesthetic goals. For example, if you have hyperpigmentation concerns, then a laser facial, dermaplaning, or Vibradermabrasion treatment may be ideal. If you want to achieve glowing skin, then our signature Bella Tu Classic Facial or the BT Nano Microcurrent Facial may be a better option. We will help you select a facial that will meet your needs.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
The results of these treatments will build up gradually over time. In other words, the more treatments you have, the better your skin will look. For this reason, it’s generally recommended that facial treatments become part of your regular skincare routine at least once a month or once every other month.
For some facials, such as the Gua Sha Jade Stone facial, you will need to have a series of six consecutive treatments to achieve optimal results. If you aren’t sure about your treatment frequency or how many treatments you will need, you can always discuss your treatment plan with one of our aesthetic experts.
What Are Basic Facial Steps?
Although some of the key techniques of facial treatments may be unique, the basic steps are all the same. The goal of a facial is to cleanse, exfoliate, and treat the skin with active ingredients that promote better skin health or target specific skin concerns.
For this reason, many facial treatments you have will always begin with a basic skin cleanse. From there, your treatments will be customized based on your unique needs and the specific treatment you are using. For example, the next steps of an acne facial will be different from the next step of a classic facial.
What Should You Do After Treatment?
After facial treatment, it’s very important to treat your skin kindly so that your skin can recover and your results can develop as desired. For any exfoliating facial, you should not wear makeup for at least 24 hours, you should not use retinoids or chemical exfoliants for at least 48 hours, and you should continue to use sunscreen when you plan to be outside every day.
Based on the specific facial treatment you’re using, you may receive more detailed aftercare instructions. For example, with laser treatments, you may also be instructed to avoid direct contact with sunlight, excessive heat, excessive sweating, and hot water.
Why Are Professional Treatments Better?
Many women look at the steps of a professional facial and wonder whether or not at-home facials are as effective. Although your at-home facial may follow the same basic cleansing, exfoliation, and active treatment steps, the results of an at-home facial will not be as comprehensive as a professional facial.
This is because the chemicals and tools used for professional treatments are designed to deeply exfoliate the skin so that active skincare products can penetrate the subdermal layers and promote more ideal skin health. You will likely notice better results from a professional facial than what you can accomplish by yourself at home.
Can You Enhance Your Results?
You can absolutely enhance the results of your facial treatment by taking good care of your skin after your appointments. For example, the daily use of sunscreen will protect your skin from future blemishes and hyperpigmentation, which will help your results look better longer.
Using the right skincare products can also enhance your results or help your results last longer. We can walk you through the skincare products you should incorporate into your routine to get the best possible results from each of your treatments.
