5 Benefits of Facials

5 Benefits of Facials

Facials 一 an entire category of cosmetic procedure designed to cleanse, exfoliate, nourish, hydrate, and even out the tone of your skin 一 are the quintessential med spa treatment. Facials are notorious for giving you a healthy glow, but that’s only one of the many advantages of facials. 

Here are five benefits of facials, courtesy of our team here at Serendipity Med Spa in Southlake, Texas. These perks make it clear why you should treat yourself to a facial today.

1. Fewer lines and wrinkles

Do facials really help with wrinkles? Yes! Anti-aging facial treatments help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

As you age, you may choose to include facials — especially those with hyaluronic acid serums — as part of your skin care regimen. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin retain moisture, and studies show that this can lead to smoother skin as well as decreased wrinkle depth.

Fun fact: You might recognize hyaluronic acid as the key wrinkle-fighter in Juvéderm®, Vollure®, and Volbella® dermal fillers.

2. Improved skin hydration

Although there are many different types of facials, exfoliation is a key component in all of them. That’s because layers of dead skin can make your skin appear dull and rough, but it also makes it difficult for moisturizing serums to penetrate your skin. 

By sloughing off dead skin, creams and serums can do a better job of hydrating your skin. This applies to moisturizing serums we use during your facial, but it also makes your at-home skin care routine more effective. Hello, smooth skin!

3. Reduced acne

Do you have acne-prone skin? Facials can also help reduce acne in a few ways. 

First, exfoliation removes dead skin. This allows your acne-fighting creams or topical medications to penetrate more effectively. 

Second, during the extraction phase of a facial, we remove dirt and debris from clogged pores. Because clogged pores can increase the presence of pimples, cleaning your skin and extracting pores can help reduce your risk of future outbreaks.

4. Smaller pores

Not only does removing dirt and debris from pores help reduce acne, it also helps make your pores appear smaller. Everyone has pores, but when they get clogged with oil and dirt, they get stretched out and appear larger and more visible. 

During your facial, our team uses a handheld device to extract dead skin cells from your pores, which reduces the appearance and size of clogged pores.  

5. Higher confidence

Our facials here at Serendipity Med Spa are designed to help you address your problem areas and reach your aesthetic goals. As our facials tighten your skin, exfoliate it, nourish and hydrate it with specially formulated serums, you benefit from improved circulation and a healthy glow. 

Revitalized skin with a clear, even skin tone can boost your confidence like nothing else!
