What You Need to Know About Facials

January 18, 2016

When you’re looking to get healthy, glowing skin, conventional over-the-counter creams, lotions and potions may not always work, and can be quite expensive to try. With new technologies emerging, the variety of facial treatments available today is surprising and can often be confusing for first-timers looking for a facial. We’re here to show you how facials can be very effective at improving your problem areas, and improving the appearance and health of your skin. Here’s what you need to know about facials.

We all have different skin types and the condition of your skin changes over time. In order to achieve the best results from your facial experience, we suggest you speak with one of our beauty experts to discuss which treatment is best for you. At IGBeauty, we provide free consultations and custom profiling. During your consultation, you can communicate your priorities, as well as discuss any allergies or problem areas you wish to address. If you’re on any medication, your skin may react differently to treatments and therefore it’s very important to mention this to our experts, and we will customize your treatment after examining your skin.

A great tip for first-time facial clients is to avoid booking a facial right before a big event or special occasion. You’ll need some time to recover from any redness, discolouration or peeling that may occur. It’s quite common for blotchy, irritated skin to emerge in the days following your treatment and therefore it’s recommended to book your facial appointment 3-5 days in advance from the big event. Once the residual redness fades, your glowing skin will be free from any dirt, makeup or buildup, so it’s important to allow your skin to breath for at least 12 hours without any heavy makeup. Plan around events that you wouldn’t want to show up bare faced for.

Wondering how you should prepare for your appointment? We suggest that you arrive for your facial with your skin looking as it normally would – prepare with your normal skin routine. This means avoid using any peels, scrubs or exfoliates beforehand, as you don’t want to over-sensitize your skin prior to treatment. If your skin is irritated, sensitive or sunburned, let us know right away!

It’s important to take the time to visit our skin professionals frequently. By maintaining your skin’s tone and texture consistently, you’re more likely to see a dramatic improvement to the overall clarity and nourishment of your skin. This is why frequent facials are suggested. While daily cleansing and moisturizing, exfoliating and SPF protection from the sun may help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, brown spots, dull and oily skin, there is more that can be done to protect and maintain the health of your skin. For optimal results, it’s important to maintain your skin’s health and book facials every 4-6 weeks.

IGBeauty offers a variety of facials to protect us from acne, damaging toxins and pollution. With a Deep Cleansing Facial, we’ll exfoliate and cleanse your skin to open pores, moisturize and stimulate circulation, resulting in smooth and visibly soft skin. Additional treatments are available to remove excess dirt and oil, toxins, dead skin cells, whiteheads and blackheads and improve the texture and colour of your skin.
