Facials Q & A

What is a facial?

Whether you’re looking for an anti-aging remedy, to eradicate acne or simply want your skin to glow, one of our customized facials is the perfect solution. They incorporate a therapeutic massage aimed at exfoliating and deep cleaning the skin on your face. Although you may be seeking a facial to improve the look and health of your skin, a facial does more than that. It also helps you feel relaxed and refreshed, and it can even make you appear younger.

What are the benefits of a facial?

The benefits of a facial include:

  • Clear clogged pores
  • Improve and prevent acne
  • Anti-aging effects
  • Relieve stress
  • Remove dead skin cells
  • Hydrate your skin

To maintain the health of your skin, it is recommended to get a facial every 4 -6 weeks or at least at the start of each season. This not only keeps your skin stay fresh and clean but also assists in maintaining good skin health with the change in weather.

What can I expect from a facial?

A facial at Primary Skin Care & Aesthetics isn’t like a facial at a spa. You get one-on-one treatment not only from a licensed aesthetician, but you can also consult with Dr. Acosta to answer any questions you may have. Dr. Acosta evaluates your skin based on his evaluation, he’ll prescribe a precise facial match your specific skincare needs.

The facial is performed by the esthetician who is also qualified to prescribe facials and treat the skin with a variety of pharmaceutical grade products. A facial includes cleansing, exfoliation, steaming to assist in the removal of dead skin and softens the pores to help extract impurities. Other treatments may be added to a facial, such as a light peel, microdermabrasion, eye treatment and so on. Every facial includes a mask that is chosen specifically for your skin's needs.

Can I get a facial if I have acne?

If you have acne, whether it’s only a few blemishes or a full-on breakout, Dr. Acosta can help you with an individualized facial plan. Based on his evaluation, he’ll design a treatment to help improve the look and health of your skin and reduce blemishes. Usually, a combination of facials and lasers really helps improve acne and acne scars.

We also offer back facials for those with acne on the back. Like a regular facial, this treatment includes steaming, exfoliation, and a mask to improve the overall appearance of the skin.

What is an acne facial?

If your acne is mild, Dr. Acosta may recommend an acne facial, which is a deep cleansing of the skin that includes exfoliation and treatment of pimples and blackheads. During the facial, a trained aesthetician first gently cleanses your skin, performs extractions and chooses the appropriate mask. We keep a close eye on your skin and suggest recommended home care and stay on top of facials every 2-3 weeks.
