Facials are the ultimate treat: well-known for combining relaxation with rejuvenation, focusing on a part of our body that gets the most attention and usage in our day-to-day. But despite their indulgent reputation, facials host a significant number of benefits, boosting our health from the top down.
Below, Mint & Needle highlights a few key benefits to receiving monthly facials with a medical aesthetics practice.
Deep clean and prevent breakouts
Facials help to gently (and correctly) exfoliate and cleanse dirt and oil that your daily washes have left behind. Facials are able to provide a deeper exfoliation that you can achieve at home, paving the way for smoother skin, unclogging pores, and allowing for greater penetration of facial serums and moisturizers.
Whether you have a big event coming up, or want to improve your skin over time, a facial is key to helping your confidence shine through.
Wash away your stress
Receiving a facial massage activates your sympathetic nervous system, helping to relieve stress, tension, and anxiety. Not only is ongoing stress bad for your skin, it can negatively impact the rest of your health as well.
In turn, this benefit is two-fold, as relieving stress helps prevent premature aging, too. Less frowning means fewer wrinkles!
Boost your anti-aging perks
With the many types of facials available, the benefits reach far and wide. Facials can improve your skin’s tone, texture, and elasticity, as they fight the damaging effects of sun exposure, time, and pollution.
Facials help reduce fine lines and age spots, allow your skin to feel healthier, and relieve tired, dehydrated skin. Most importantly, facials can increase circulation of the blood beneath the skin, facilitating the renewal of skin cells and contributing to optimal skin health.

Think of your aesthetician as your dentist. Regular visits are crucial for preventative measures, and just like getting your teeth cleaned by a professional, your skin can’t achieve the same level of freshness and purity on your own, at home.
