Professional Facial Vs. At Home Facial

Beautiful skin does not always come easily. Age, environmental pollutants, sensitivities, genes, and the products we use all play a role in our skin’s condition and appearance. Regular professional facials are a great way to not only rehydrate dry skin, but also unclog pores, treat breakouts, and exfoliate dead skin cells. They can also encourage increased collagen production and new cell turnover for a longer-lasting glow and softer feel.

But can you get the same results from an at-home facial?

A good home skincare routine is essential for healthy, glowing skin. Proper cleansing, exfoliation, spot treatments, and quality products all go a long way toward ensuring you put your best face forward, but none of these things are a substitute for a visit to the aesthetician. Even people with naturally pretty skin are often amazed at how much better they look and feel after a professional facial, and there are multiple reasons.

Expertise: Certified aestheticians are able to add value to the professional facial experience. They do this by analyzing your skin type, identifying issues that you struggle with, and then personalizing your treatment and products to create the best results. After a gentle, but deep cleanse and facial massage, a professional also incorporates specialized tools to extract impurities, blackheads, and whiteheads without damaging the surrounding skin. By safely and successfully extracting impurities, the skin is then better prepared for the remainder of the facial experience, allowing products to be more readily absorbed to create longer-lasting and sustainable change.

Skincare products and tools are not one-size-fits-all, and there are many that are best left to professionals. Aestheticians frequently see clients looking to repair the damage done after attempting dermaplaning, chemical peels, or other more invasive skincare procedures at home. Trained to not only know how and when to use certain tools and procedures on a client but how to monitor the skin for negative reactions, an aesthetician will personally tailor products to a client’s skin care goals and recommend products to use at home between visits.
