Benefits of Facials: Why to Keep Coming Back!

Written by: Mikayla Doherty

Do you have questions about facials? Appleton’s current Esthetics student, Mikayla, is here to answer them!


What is a facial treatment?

A facial is a professional service designed to improve and rejuvenate the skin.


What can a facial/skin treatment do for you?

Skin treatments have many benefits, but to sum it up, they can help maintain the health of your skin and correct certain skin conditions through deep cleansing, massage, masks, products, and the use of some machines.


8 Facial Treatment Benefits, Simplified:

  1. Deep Cleanses
  2. Exfoliates
  3. Increases circulation and detoxifies
  4. Relaxes the senses, nerves, and muscles
  5. Stimulates the skin functions and metabolism
  6. Treats conditions such as dryness, oiliness, or redness
  7. Softens wrinkles and aging lines
  8. Helps clear up blemishes and acne


Should I go to a Medical Office or a Spa?

Clinical services in a medical office usually focus more on corrective treatments for the skin, while spa treatments may focus more on the relaxation of the experience. All in all, blending a results-oriented treatment with relaxation leads to a better overall experience.


Stop in at your local spa and support your esthetician! It helps them, and of course benefits you, as well!
