Facials

A Facial is a treatment to instantly leave your skin looking soft and feeling younger. It helps to clear clogged pores and exfoliate dead skin cells as well as put hydration back.  The massage that is performed as part of a facial helps to reduce stress, aid in blood circulation, and lymphatic drainage. This can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and puffiness.

FAQ

Why are facials important?

You exercise often, you eat right and you get frequent haircuts, so why wouldn’t you get a facial? As with most other beauty and health matters, facials help prevent and treat common problems. We do not always realize the effect of environment on our skin. Air conditioners are big culprits in dehydrating our skins and facials can drastically correct a lack of moisture. Also in summer time when it is warm or you go to the gym, your skin can get oilier, creating acne and breakout prone skin. Doing facials can help with these and other skin ailments.

How often should one have a facial?

Ideally once every month or once every 2 months will give your skin a boost, prevent problems from surfacing and speed up the changes you would like to see in your skin.. It takes the skin five weeks on average to complete the full cycle of cell growth and exfoliation. Therefore, a facial every four weeks helps the skin through that process. If you have specific concerns like pigmentation, acne scars or severe sun damage and dehydration, you may need to combine facials with some more targeted treatments like Laser or Chemical Peels.

What will I notice after a facial?

Smoother texture, proper hydration, a glowing complexion, fewer breakouts and firmer skin. Your skin may also feel very smooth following a facial, because of the different exfoliation treatments we perform during your facial. If your skin was dehydrated before, immediately after a facial, your skin will feel hydrated and amazing. The effects of the boosted hydration should last 48 to 72 hours. Your professional treatments and homecare products will together help to keep your skin hydrated, healthy and glowing. If your skin is congested and your pores are clogged, the days following extractions and treatment could produce some breakouts. The skin starts to expel the debris. This will resolve shortly

What to avoid for the first day after a facial?

  • Picking at your skin
  • Using heavy makeup
  • Stepping into a sauna.or steam room
  • Hitting the gym
  • Using an exfoliator or face scrub
  • Applying acne products and other at-home treatments with active ingredients like retinol of Alpha Hydroxy Acids.
  • Sunbathing.
  • Avoid Getting a wax or laser treatment for about a week after your facial.

What is the best facial for Acne Skin?

The Zo Acne Facial, that incorporates a gentle peel, will provide you with excellent results. Especially in combination with the Zo Acne home products. will give you an immediate result and boost your skin. The Zo Facial is gentle enough to do on the most sensitive inflamed acne skin, but also potent enough to make real change to your skin. Facials for acne can also be combined with Acne Peels to decongest the skin and leave it exfoliated and glowing.

What is the most common facial people come in for?

People nowadays do not always have a lot of time, or they have to attend an event, so they want instant results from a facial. They want their skin to be healthy and glowing and they want it immediately. One of our most popular facials is the Fire & Ice Facial. It is an intense resurfacing treatment and instantly brightens and tightens the skin for that red carpet glow. Our Zo Medical Facials for Acne and dehydration is also very popular.

What is necessary to include in your home skincare regimen?

  • I believe in washing your face twice a day, either with a creamy or a light foaming cleanser, depending on your skin type and condition.
  • Regular exfoliation has to be a very important part of your skin care routine as well as a toner to help balance the PH of your skin and strengthens your skin barrier.
  • A Treatment cream that is problem specific, either for Acne, dehydration or brightening and pigmentation.
  • A serum like IS Clinical Active C serum or a Vitamin C serum, will also compliment your skin care regimen. Serums are anti-blemish, brightening and a powerful antioxidant to fight and neutralize free radicals that cause aging.
  • The one thing no one can compromise on is the daily use of sunblock SPF 50.
