How Spa Facials Help Prevent Aging in Your 20s, 30s, 40s and Beyond

Getting a facial once a month is a beneficial way to nourish your soul and skin and dramatically improve your appearance. Your skin is as important as any of your other  organs, so you need to make sure you take care of it.

The best of contemporary skin treatments are all included in professional spa facials. These treatments generally include steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, massages, and tools to give you smooth, supple skin.

Let’s look at WHY spa facials help prevent aging of our skin, decade by decade.

The Benefits

Overall, facials have many great benefits such as:

  • Detoxifying the skin through the lymph system with light facial massage strokes
  • Lowering stress levels – high levels of stress can deteriorate the skin
  • Treating and controlling  acne without the use of prescription medications
  • Preventing aging with a combination of a good regimen and routine treatments
  • Increasing blood circulation for healthy looking skin
  • Exfoliating dead skin cells on the outer surface of your skin which create the appearance of lackluster, dry and rough skin
  • Hydrating the skin to keep it supple, soft and vibrant
  • Increasing the absorption abilities of your products which improves their effectiveness

There are many different types of facials that are offered in our treatment rooms. A good way to figure out what kind of treatment you may want to try is to get an initial consultation with an aesthetician.  These professionals will be able to address certain visible skin concerns like brown spots (hyperpigmentation), dryness, irritation, breakouts etc. A great facial routine can begin at any age.

Your 20s

Beginning in our 20s we should be laying the groundwork for healthy skin.  Prevention and maintenance should form the core of a skin care regimen. Incorporating facials are key factors in keeping the youthful glow later in life.

Your 30s

During our 30s, hormones rule this stage of life from pregnancy, periods, stress and more. Breakouts tend to occur, as well as the beginning signs of aging – crow’s feet, smile lines and irregular pigmentation.  Services and products with antioxidants and Alpha Hydroxy Acids will aid in correcting these initial signs of aging.

Your 40s

In your 40s, we want to stop those ever-increasing lines, wrinkles and spots. During our 20s, skin is optimal, and cells renew every 28 days. But by our 40s, the effects of sun damage and environmental stress slows the process up to 45 to 50 days causing a build-up of cells, leaving skin dull and amplifying fine lines and wrinkles.

Using glycolic peel treatments and skin products with active ingredients such as peptides, retinol, vitamin C and antioxidants, like green tea and resveratrol, could reverse such effects.

Your 50s and 60s

By our 50s and into our 60s, skin begins to decrease in collagen production.  Dehydration sets in, so hydration is very important. Hydrating masks, nourishing botanical oils, and ceramide-based creams that deeply moisturize will replenish and renew skin.

Facials are a great way to get a professional assessment of your skin while receiving expert care.  Having your skin analyzed and examined will determine which treatment will bring out the best results.
