Doing an at-home facial can certainly be convenient. However, there are a couple of disadvantages that come from doing at-home facials. For one, you don’t have the medical expertise to know exactly what your skin needs. At the same time, there are certain advantages that come from getting professional custom facials that cannot be overstated.
One of the first benefits of getting custom facials is that the products used are designed for your particular skin type. When you do an at-home facial, you may purchase or use products that are designed for an individual who has a different skin type. If you diagnose your skin type on your own, you may get things wrong. This can exacerbate any problems that your skin already has. For example, you may think you have dry skin, but you may actually have a combination skin type. When you use a product that is designed for dry skin, you may be putting too much moisture into your skin, which can lead to problems like acne. Custom facials will be suited for your particular needs, leaving you with the best results.
Our custom facials are also designed to help you deal with a particular type of skin problem. Of course, they are going to deliver overall benefits, but when you speak to the professionals who work in our office, they are going to come up with a tailor-made facial in order to help you deal with your particular skincare problems. If you are dealing with acne or acne scarring, they may use a variety of techniques to help you deal with this problem. Or if you are dealing with the telltale signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles, we will create a custom facial for you.
Most products that you purchase over-the-counter to do at-home facials do not contain that much of their active ingredient. In order to be sold over-the-counter to everyone who may try to use them without causing damage, regulating agencies only allow skincare manufacturers to include a small amount of the active ingredient.
During a custom facial, we may recommend a medical-grade product in order to help you deal with skincare issues. These products are going to penetrate deep into the skin and help you to get the best results possible. Medical-grade skincare products have been designed to treat wrinkles, acne, pigmentation issues and a wide variety of other problems.
