“How Long Will My Facial Results Last?”

The facial is over. Your skin has received a deep cleansing, a thorough professional strength peel, and (if it’s a Bioelements facial) a Custom Blended Massage, Power Treatment and Mask that’s designed to target your skin’s exact needs and concerns.  Your complexion is clear, glowing, radiant and younger-looking. Lucky you!

So of course you’d want to ask the following question:

“How long will the results of this facial last?”

The answer: It’s entirely up to you.

That’s right. A facial’s results are only as good as how you maintain them – or how you take care of your skin at-home. And that’s completely in your hands.

First: Do you practice good skin care habits? Do you cleanse your skin before going to sleep? Do you know the answer to the question, “What is my skin type?” Do you wear a broad spectrum sunscreen every day (even when it’s cloudy)? How about anti aging skin care? Do you use AHAs? Do you fight environmental aggressors? Think of it this way: you wouldn’t neglect brushing your teeth in between dentist visits, would you? So practice good skin habits and help prolong your results in between facials.

And just as important: do you use the right skin care products at home? Your esthetician will likely recommend the use of specific products at home. These are recommended for a reason (why? Because she’s received extensive training on the skin – and she knows what it takes to make the results of your facial last). The products she recommends are better than “mass-produced” products you may find elsewhere. So follow her recommendations and see you results last far longer.

How long do your facial results last? Let me know in the comments.
