4 Facial Treatments For Your Best-Possible Skin


When you think of facials, you may only think of special occasions, but facials can be instrumental to achieving and maintaining good skin. With many different techniques available for facials, you can receive any number of treatments to tackle skin issues from acne to fine lines.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are an appealing option for people who want to improve the texture of their skin, minimize discoloration from acne scars or hyperpigmentation, and achieve a healthy glow. Although some people opt to do their own chemical peels at home, having them done by a professional reduces the risk of serious burns from the acid. There are several types of acids that can be used in peels and in varying concentrations. You should always start with the lowest concentration and work your way up to more concentrated acid, depending on the results you want and how your skin tolerates acid. With a gentle peel, you may not notice a significant difference in your skin, but it should provide some light exfoliation. A more intensive peel will result in significant changes in your skin over the next week. At first, your skin may be red and, eventually, the red areas become darker in color and slowly peel off, revealing smoother skin.


Cryotherapy uses extreme cold temperatures to improve your skin. Depending on the place that offers the service, you may enter a chamber and have cryotherapy for your whole body or just have the vapors from liquid nitrogen blown over your face. The treatment only lasts a couple of minutes. People who have cryo facials typically notice their skin glows immediately after the treatment and for several days thereafter. Cryotherapy may improve collagen production in the skin, which can help make your skin firmer. Much like when cold therapy is used in other ways, the cold reduces inflammation. This makes cryotherapy ideal for people who experience redness, either alone or due to active acne. When inflammation is reduced, it can make acne less noticeable and possibly help breakouts heal faster. Since cold temperatures shrink your pores, it is an ideal finishing step after all other treatments.


Steam treatments may be done in various ways, such as placing hot, wet towels on your face or using a steamer. Moist heat can make it easier to cleanse and exfoliate your face, so steam is frequently used first. Another benefit of using stem is that it opens the pores, which can make pore strips or other extraction methods more effective and less irritating to the skin. Although steam is often used before cleansing and exfoliating, it is also helpful before using other skincare products. When the skin is softened from the steam and the pores are open, this is the ideal time to use facial products that may be designed to improve the appearance of your skin or have restorative benefits since they are more likely to be absorbed during this time.

LED Light

LED light therapy is also used during facial treatments. There are two types of LED lights: red and blue. The type of light used during your facial will depend on the state of your skin and what you are trying to achieve. Red light is typically used to enhance the texture and tone of your skin by encouraging collagen production, which makes your skin firmer and helps with signs of aging. Blue light works well for acne because it helps destroy bacteria. People who have skin imperfections, such as lines, redness, or discoloration can also benefit from blue LED light. If you have multiple skin issues, it is better to have a treatment that incorporates both red and blue light.

Whenever possible, you should incorporate facials into your skincare regimen. There are many techniques that can be used during a facial to improve almost any skin issue.
