With all the skin care products and services that are advertised, trending and featured on social media, it might feel overwhelming to figure out what you should be doing for your skin. Professional facials are a great place to start! But how often should you be getting one?

Why is cleansing an important part of skin care?

Every day our skin is bombarded with pollution, dirt, and all kinds of environmental factors. That is why washing your face every night is so important. Daily cleansing is essential for removing unwanted dirt and bacteria.

Often, environmental impurities and cosmetic products are not water soluble, so simply rinsing your face with water is not going to thoroughly cleanse your skin. You need cosmeceutical products that emulsify impurities. Therefore, cleansers are important.

A certified Master Esthetician (like those at TimeLess Medical Spa in Ogden, UT) can recommend a cleanser specifically for your skin type.

Every month, your skin’s upper layer naturally sheds, revealing new and refreshed skin from the middle layer. This is called cell turnover.

Sometimes this process is not completely successful on its own and dead skin cells don’t fully shed. This can leave you with flaky skin and clogged pores.

Extensive cleansing and exfoliation, like you get from a professional spa facial, is the best way to ensure fully cleansed skin, and better cell turnover. A professional facial treatment helps to remove lingering dead skin cells for better absorption of serums, moisturizers, and creams.

How often should you get a professional facial treatment?

So, with all that in mind, TimeLess Master Estheticians recommend you get a facial once a month to achieve your best skin.

If monthly facials sound like a little too much maintenance for you, a good compromise is to get a professional treatment at least with every season transition.

What options are available for professional facials?

There are a wide range and variety of professional esthetic treatments available.

It is important you consult with a certified Master Esthetician to determine the best services for your skin type and needs.

At TimeLess Medical Spa in Ogden, UT we offer a full menu of beneficial treatments, using top of the line products.
