What are the Benefits of Getting a Facial Once a Month? 

Facials, the ultimate luxury and act of pampering that you’re probably not doing enough. Have you wondered how often you should be getting facials? Usually people reserve facials for the most special of occasions, but did you know there’s a lot of benefits to receiving monthly facials? Your skincare experts at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa are here to explain.

The Skin Cycle is the process where skin cells regenerate and replace old skin cells, and any long-lasting results will take at least a full skin cycle to see. The average adult skin cycle is 28 days, and the very reason why professionals recommend monthly treatment is to ensure your skin progresses effectively through its full cycle of cell growth and exfoliation.

Many folks wait until it’s too late to get their next facial. They’ve woken up to a breakout or some skincare concern that’s now very visible, all of which could have been avoided beforehand with regular facials and the proper home care. Doing a treatment once a month ensures your skin is not clogged up with impurities, and that regeneration rate of skin cells is performing at its peak and not hampered by environmental or lifestyle factors. While getting regular treatments do a majority of the heavy lifting, facials also amplify the benefits of professional skin care products, as they work hand in hand to provide you with the best results possible. 

Want to learn more about the benefits of getting a facial once a month? We’ve compiled a list of reasons for you to consider visiting Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa more often to take care of your skin and general wellbeing. 

In Good Hands

This might seem like a no-brainer, but when you visit for a facial treatment at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa you’ll not only be in the care of a licensed aesthetician, but our team receives extensive on-going training to stay up-to-date on the most advanced treatments available today. This means they’ll be able to address your skin with a professional and critical eye, and that means no guessing or trying when it comes to problem issues with your skin. By coming in once a month, one of our pros is maintaining your skin with clinical-grade products and techniques you just can’t apply at home. 

Slow Aging

More than just an hour to relax, facials allow us to address skin concerns and combat aging. Regular facials promote collagen production, hydrate the skin and ultimately minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Products packed with antioxidants and nutrients along with exfoliation allows your face to fight aging. Facials can increase blood flow under the skin allowing renewal of skin cells. So if you need a remedy to combat signs of aging from developing sooner, receiving facials is an easy and effective solution.  

Deep Clean

Not unlike visiting the dentist, you can brush your teeth at home all you want, but you’re just not going to clean like a professional. Clogged pores don’t stand a chance against an aesthetician. We can apply acids and toners to loosen up clogged pores and have professional tools designed just for extractions. At home extractions can lead to scarring and broken blood vessels and do more damage than good.  

Strength in Numbers

The average facial is about 45 minutes to one hour, and though they can show excellent results in that timeframe, you can’t expect a miracle in a single session (cue Skin Cycle lesson!). Concerns like sun spots, wrinkles and generally vibrant skin need regular facials. By way of certain products and techniques, we’re able to address all issues with your skin throughout regular treatments and following prescribed home care.

Battle of the Blackheads

If our faces were a house, blackheads would be cockroaches. They seemingly infest our mug, and once you think you’ve gotten rid of them, one springs up. But fear not! Your friends at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa are here to help with a few tips + treatments.

But to destroy an enemy, you first must know what it is. Blackheads are a mix of oxidized dead skin cells and oils, sitting in pores. It’s the exposure to air, that makes the pores turn black. Though there’s a lot you can do to stay on top of them, there’s big genetic disposition to blackheads/ pore size.

One of the best tools in your arsenal against blackheads is salicylic acid. It’s a beta hydroxy acid that works to remove excess oils and help exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface of your face. Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa not only sells products from SkinMedica that includes salicylic acid, but a few of our facials use them as well.

Though it might be tempting to pick at those stubborn blackheads, you should leave it to the professionals with a facial. Picking can leave you with an infection and then possibly scaring. Extractions during a facial at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa make all the difference. We start off by steaming the pores, which opens them up, and after some magical topical solutions, we can manually clean up all of those pores.

After a facial with us, one of our highly trained aestheticians can point you in the right direction for product. You’re going to want to keep your skin moisturized, it helps keep the skin balances so you don’t over produce oil.

So if blackheads are you enemy #1, allow us to help. Our amazing staff and lineup of clinical strength products will do the job nicely. If you’d like to learn more about our facials, products or spa services, please visit Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa or call us at (480) 912-5325

Five Reason to Love Dermaplaning

If you ask any serious beauty-buff what the secret to glowing skin is, you’ll more than likely get an earful about dermaplaning. Done by taking a scalpel and scraping the top layers of dead skin off, dermaplaning sounds way more terrifying than it actually is. For the sake of not looking like you got into a fight with a blender, this treatment should only be done by a professional like the ones at Colair Beauty Lounge & Med Spa. We offer this service as an add-on to our facials. Below are some reasons why we’re obsessed with dermaplaning.

1.) It helps reduce signs of aging

Dermaplaning actually helps promote the production of matrix proteins such as collagen and elastin which therefore reduces the signs of aging.

2.) Makes Your Skincare Absorb Better 

With all of that dead skin removed, your products will penetrate your skin so much better. You’ll find that you’re using less cream/serum and it glides on much easier.

3.) Helps Battle Acne 

Not just for giving you a glowing complexion, dermaplaning helps with “hyperkeratosis” which is a buildup of the top layer of skin, that not only dulls your complexion but also contributes to acne.

4.) Removes Peach Fuzz

Who isn’t without those random patches of ‘baby hair’? Since dermaplaning is essentially shaving down your face, you’ll lose the hair and dead skin cells at the same time.

5.) Even Skin Tone

Besides just improving the texture of your skin, it even helps the color of your skin to appear more even— especially great for hyper pigmentation!
