Monthly Facials at Unique Verve in Boston

Monthly Facials and Their Amazing Benefits:

Many people underestimate the power of professional monthly facials.  Unfortunately, most people think of a facial as a luxury. Or wait until they encounter a skin concern such as breakouts, acne, pigmentation, dryness, wrinkles, etc.  Many skin concerns can be prevented by monthly facials combined with appropriate at home skin care products.  Additionally, monthly facials can reverse the signs of aging.  Here are 10 amazing benefits of having monthly facials:

*Skin Rejuvenation

The outermost layer of your skin renews itself approximately every 28 days. This also depends on age and lifestyle. As we get older, cell turnover slows down significantly. For instance in teens it takes 20 days, versus in 30s about 30 days for the cells to shed. Smoking, consuming alcohol, and sunbathing all contribute to slowing down this cell turnover rate. By having monthly facials, you will help your skin to replicate new healthy cells to replace the old ones. This will result in a much healthier, younger-looking complexion

*More Effective Exfoliation

Nothing  comes close to the exfoliating results produced by a professional facial. Although there are many exfoliating options for home use. Gentle yet effective exfoliation allows for deeper product penetration, making your skincare products more effective. Exfoliation performed during the facial will help to even out your skin tone, improve hydration, and restore a youthful glow.

*Improved micro-circulation and Lymphatic function

A thorough facial will include face, neck, check and scalp massage (our facials additionally include arm massage). Massage improves micro-circulation and activates the lymphatic system which in synergy will help to flush out toxins, reduce puffiness, improve the healing process, facilitate cell turnover, oxygenate the skin, and restore a youthful glow.

*Stress Reduction

Facials are extremely relaxing (we love when our clients fall asleep or even snore:)). They are healing and rejuvenating for the face as well as the body and mind.

*Deep Pore Cleansing

A quality facial that includes exfoliation with massage and steam will soften and prepare the skin for extractions. Our outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis, is very fragile – it’s only as thin as a piece of paper. Therefore, extractions is a very delicate procedure. It should be performed only by a skilled esthetician regularly, hygienically, and carefully. Forceful, improperly performed extractions can cause scarring, diffused redness, and additional breakouts. Please do not extract at home as you can cause more harm to your skin than good!

*Improved texture

Do you want baby smooth skin? Regular monthly facials will help to remove the buildup of dead skin cells, keeping your skin smoother, healthier, and more radiant looking.

*Anti-aging

A quality facial including massage and advanced modalities (we use Active Vitamin Infusion, LED, and peels) stimulates collagen and elastin production. These protein fibers weaken and break down as we get older, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Monthly facials help to reverse the signs of aging and wrinkles by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. Monthly facials have a cumulative effect that helps to maintain optimal skin health for years to come.

*Brighter-looking skin

Quality monthly facials typically include products/ingredients and equipment that are not available for home use. Therefore, professional monthly facials can deliver great results, including brightening of dark spots and improving skin tone; massage on its own is a powerful tool in restoring overall complexion of the skin.

*Ask an Expert

Before each facial, your esthetician should evaluate your skin for any problems or changes. You can ask your esthetician about any skin concerns and the products during your regular monthly facials. Often clients buy popular products that may not even be suitable for their skin. One such product is the exfoliating brush. Often times, people use it too frequently. In our practice (with the help of the Visia Skin Scanner) we have noticed an increase in diffused redness in all of our clients and increased open comedones (blackheads) in most clients who use the exfoliating brush. Definitely consult with your esthetician before investing in a product that wasn’t directly recommended by a professional with a working knowledge of the skin. Our skin consists of a delicate ecosystem which should be preserved at all times!

*The Power of the Mask

Ideally the mask should be used at home once or twice per week as well as at least monthly during your facial. Do not underestimate the power of the mask! It’s the finishing step of the facial which will help calm, soothe, hydrate, decongest the skin, balance the pH of the skin and reduce the pores – all vital in contributing and maintaining healthy, youthful skin.
