New layers of skin!
"Skin cells take an average of 28 days to turn over," our Skin Therapist Cindy C. says. "This means that by the time you stop by for another appointment, we have a whole new layer to work with!" If you have any conditions like melasma, for example, this is a great opportunity to see what we're now working with as we move deeper into the skin.
It's like a checkup for your skin.
When you come in monthly, we're able to track your progress. "We can help map out a routine based on your schedule and lifestyle," our Skin Therapist Ashley S. says. "And we can give a fresh consultation to treat conditions as early as possible." This allows us to be proactive in our outlook and recommendations. Lifestyle changes, weather changes, diet and medication changes, stress, and travel are all reasons that your skin may begin behaving differently. What we saw in our first skin analysis might no longer be the focus, which is why we do one at the start of every facial.
We can stay nimble.
Which brings us to our next reason... when you start using a new product or change the way that you're using a product, it's important to keep an eye on how your skin is reacting. An example of this might be using retinol. "An ingredient like retinol must be pulsed and watched carefully," our Skin Therapist, Suzanne P. says. Sometimes these changes can't be seen with the naked eye. Luckily, we have all the tools to see what is going on under there! And the earlier we see how your skin is reacting to things, the better. This gives us a good baseline, as well as offering opportunities to change as needed so you can reach your goals with fewer setbacks.
Your skin just changes.
Not all products are meant to be used for forever. Sometimes a product stops working. This can be frustrating but as your skin changes, what it needs changes. It is similar to when you take a medication and find that the dosage stops being as effective over time. When we see you monthly, we can recommend something based off of what you've used in the past. No wasting time using products that no longer serve you.
You get access to the good stuff.
Some products in our treatments are amped up for pro-only use These can only be purchased by licensed locations and handled by Licensed Estheticians. "You'll see faster results with monthly professional treatment," our Skin Therapist, Jenna W. says. "This is because we have access to professional grade products that can make a big difference." We also cocktail these products, mixing more than one together to target specific needs.
You get a great work out.
One important part of our facials is massage. "Coming in for monthly facials is great for muscle stimulation!" our Skin Therapist, Liana C. says. "Regular facial massage keeps the muscles stronger." It also works on retaining collagen to keep skin tighter and helps with circulation. While you can give yourself a facial massage at home, all you need is one massage from a Skin Therapist and you'll know just how special it is to have someone trained do it.
One facial is great, more is goals.
Speaking of trainers, we like to think of facials like exercising. While one facial is great for learning a bit of the basics, you'll see real change with continued attention. Monthly facials remind you to stay dedicated to your skincare routine, gives you real-time feedback, and allows you to evolve your knowledge and health.
You deserve it.
And lastly, but most importantly, you deserve — at minimum — one hour every month to take care of yourself. Life moves fast in cities like Los Angeles and New York and in the words of Ferris Bueller, if you don't look around once in a while, you might miss it!
