Who is a good candidate for a facial?
Professional facials at Kotsanis Institute of Functional Medicine can be good treatments for patients of all ages and skin types since we adjust each facial to each patient's concerns and goals. Typically, facials are used to help correct early signs of aging (fine lines, wrinkles, and dry patches), improve damaged skin from the sun (dark spots, uneven tone and texture), deep cleanse (acne and clogged pores), and brighten dull, sallow skin. Professional facials can be designed to help teens and adults with chronic conditions like widespread acne, sensitive skin, and rosacea.
How Are Facials Performed?
After a consultation to choose your unique treatment based on your skin's condition and concerns, you can relax in a treatment room for your professional facial. Each facial treatment will be unique, but most will begin with a deep cleansing to remove dirt, makeup, and oil. After that, steam is often safely used to open clogged pores so we can extract whiteheads and blackheads. Exfoliation often follows, either done by hand or with an add-on treatment. A serum or mask may then be massaged into the skin for deep nourishment. Last, we'll apply an SPF moisturizer to protect from UV damage following the treatment.
What Should I Expect Following a Facial?
After your facial, you may notice some irritation and redness, but this should subside naturally in 12 – 24 hours. Many patients will see clear improvements in the appearance and feel of their complexion immediately after their facial. To extend the results of your facial, ask one of our skilled team members about creating an at-home skin-care routine, as well as how frequently you can schedule facials at Kotsanis Institute of Functional Medicine. You may also want to ask about other facial treatments to further enhance your complexion, like dermaplaning and chemical peels.
Does a facial hurt?
No, a facial should not hurt. The Kotsanis Institute uses only gentle techniques whenever possible and can make sure you are comfortable throughout your treatment. Be sure to let us know if you have any sensitivities or if you had problems with facials in the past. We can use different products or adjust our methods to give you the best possible experience.
How often should I have a facial?
Our team in Grapevine creates custom plans based on each patient's individual skin type and needs. In general, we recommend getting a facial every four to six weeks. This can be adjusted based on your unique circumstances. We may also recommend at-home products to use in between treatments for the best results possible.
What other services can be done during a facial?
Dermaplaning and chemical peels are two of the most popular treatments that can be done during a facial. Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation method that removes dead skin cells and unwanted hair from the face. Chemical peels use powerful solutions to remove the top layer of skin, revealing softer and smoother skin underneath.
