Determining which type of professional facial is the right type for you may seem complicated, but it doesn't have to be. All it takes is identifying your biggest skin concerns, and being open with your esthetician. Even if you skim the rest of this article, make sure to remember this: the most important thing to do when determining the best pro facial for your skin is to share your concerns with your esthetician and trust her recommendations!
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different facial types and benefits out there, and trusting a great esthetician is your best bet to get skin that's younger-looking, glowing and healthy.
Here's some skin science: Your circulatory system's ability to nourish your tissues and remove toxins and waste (and help prevent premature age signs like wrinkles and sagging) actually starts to slow down in your early twenties. Combine that with hormonal breakouts, sun damage and poor diet, and you get a multitude of reasons to get a facial – at any age, and no matter what (if any) skin aging or damage has shown up on your skin. Pro facials are a way to counteract both visible aging, and the 'unseen' damage that is about to surface.
The best facial treatment depends entirely on your skin concerns. See the full list of skin concerns professional facials can help tackle.
Facial types and prices vary from spa to spa, but Bioelements has an infinite number of pro facials thanks to our signature Custom Blending System, which allows your esthetician to completely tailor a spa facial just for your exact needs.
With a few drops of our exclusive, professional Custom Blend formulas, a Bioelements pro can personalize the most crucial steps of your facial to target exactly what your skin needs right now: maybe it's redness, dehydration, pesky breakouts, or the appearance of new lines. Your facial and the products you take home are designed for YOU.
There are many different specific treatments aside from the Custom Blend Facial, all designed to tackle very specific and personalized skin concerns:
Even these treatments are Custom Blended to further target your specific needs. At Bioelements we don't believe in off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all facials. ALL of our facials are personalized only for you: your environment, your lifestyle, your age, your stress level. It's skin care made for you – not your friend, not your neighbor – no one else.
There are so many more types of facials out there besides those listed above, but how do you choose the right one?
Trust your esthetician here. An experienced, great esthetician will ask you a multitude of in-depth questions – regardless if you've ever received a facial before or not – in order to accurately determine what's best for your skin. In fact, if your esthetician doesn't ask you any questions, then you should leave the spa immediately.
Even if your esthetician doesn't ask each one of these questions, make sure you should still give her this information:
It's important to answer each of these questions with in depth answers to give her the full picture and properly prepare for a facial.
Your esthetician should be making her own observations in addition to the information you provide. Bioelements estheticians will perform a SkinReading every single time you get a facial. SkinReading is our signature technique for "reading" your skin for any information you may have forgotten to tell us. This helps our estheticians determine the right type of salon facial for you. All estheticians, Bioelements or not, should perform some sort of assessment of your skin, otherwise they won't be able to maximize the results from your professional skin care treatment.
