Facials are definitely a beauty staple of many. They are an incredible way to relax and make your skin look and feel amazing. If money was not an issue, most people would probably opt to get one everyday. Obviously that is not realistic. So, how often should one get a facial to retain results?
The answer depends on a few factors. Not all facials are created equally. However, the general consensus is every 4-8 weeks. This number is especially significant because our skin turns over dead skin cells every 28-32 days on average. Therefore, more than one facial every 4 weeks can actually be irritating and potentially damaging to the skin.
In addition, one’s need for a facial will depend on their type of skin and what type of facial they are seeking. For example, microdermabrasion facials should be repeated every 2-4 weeks for optimal results. Other types of facials, such as deep chemical peels, should only be used every 2-3 years! Therefore, the frequency and type of facials should always be determined by an experienced and trained aesthetician.
Furthermore, due to the recent influx of at-home beauty products, such as peels, exfoliators, and skin brushes, people can now “fill in the gaps” between facial appointments. For some, these at home products can be a real money and time saver. However, these products are not as effective as a facial done by a trained aesthetician, so it is still recommended to go for a facial at least a few times a year in order to receive the best results. Skin also changes depending on the season and different lifestyle factors. Therefore, a trained aesthetician will be able to properly diagnose your skin needs and give you a proper treatment plan.
For some, it will not be realistic to get a facial every 4-8 weeks. And that is totally okay! Any facial, no matter what the frequency, will give your skin the TLC it craves.
