Your face is visible to others and most often one of the first features people see. When you take care of your face by regular visits to an esthetician, you are also improving the condition of your skin. The advantages of a facial are many, including preventive care, appropriate skin care, and a deeply relaxing experience.
Your skin is your largest organ of your body. Adults carry some 8 pounds and 22 square feet of it. It is also your fastest-growing organ. Your skin grows really fast. In fact there are about 19 million skin cells in every inch of your body. And new skin cells replace old ones. Your body is always making new skins cells and getting rid of old ones. Your body gets rid of 30,000 to 40,000 old skin cells every day. Dead skin cells are on top.
As this relates to a facial—
- Immediately Afterward: your skin radiates a healthy glow
- 48-72 hours: skin is hydrated as circulation has been boosted
- 28-48 days: cells regenerate and the long-term benefits of the facial kick in
- 4-6 weeks: time to remove dead skin cells and rid the skin of impurities
Four Pillars Spa offers a wide variety of facial services to benefit your skincare regimen. Microdermabrasion, peels, anti-aging and enzyme treatments all help in the skin regeneration process. For that healthy glow!
