What are facials?

Facials are skin treatments for the face. They not only make one feel relaxed and pampered, but they also help to make skin healthier. They are meant to cleanse, firm, smooth and moisturize the skin, as well as fight premature aging and skin conditions such as acne, hyper-pigmentation, skin irritation, rosacea, etc.

You can space your facials every two to three weeks or monthly. More often than two weeks apart can actually be detrimental to skin health.

Can a facial cure all skin problems?

Unfortunately, no. Some skin problems, such as severe acne or skin cancer, require the treatment of a medical specialist, such as a dermatologist. However, a facial can help your skin look and feel better.

Even though you can give yourself a basic facial at home, nothing can replace the experience of having one performed by a trained professional skin therapist (esthetician), who can analyze your skin and customize each treatment to your particular needs.

Why do people get facials?

  • to deeply clean the skin and pores and get rid of impurities
  • to improve skin that is either too dry or too oily
  • to rejuvenate skin by helping reduce fine lines
  • to relax and “dcompress”
  • to treat certain skin conditions and improve skin texture

What to know

Please arrive 15 minutes before your first session to give yourself time to fill out our intake form. This will help our esthetician perform your skin analysis and make sure you don’t have any contraindications for treatment.

If you are new to facials, you might want to get started with a basic treatment such as our European Facial. All you have to do is relax and enjoy!

Just remember a very important fact: results take time, and there is no “miracle cure” for skin issues. However, if you are patient and consistent, you will love what you can accomplish by taking care of your skin regularly. Your commitment to follow recommendations and instructions is as important as coming in for your facial treatments. But don’t worry, your esthetician will provide you with easy suggestions to promote an excellent home care routine!

Here at Dcompress Downtown we are committed to our clients health and well being. We are bringing only the best to our treatment room by using the Osmosis brand exclusively.
