Discover the Many Ways a Facial Could Improve the Health of Your Skin

Getting a facial often seems like a luxurious and pampering experience, however, did you know that getting a facial could actually improve facialsyour skin? That’s right, there are a variety of facials out there that cater to specific needs and concerns that our patients are having. Our Georgetown, SC, dermatologist, Dr. Michelle Welch-Smith of Winyah Bay Dermatology, is an expert in the field and is readily available to help you achieve the healthier skin you’ve been looking for. Read below to learn the benefits of facials!

Cleanse, Exfoliate and Brighten

One of the biggest benefits of getting a facial is to give your skin the deep cleaning and exfoliation that it needs. A lot of people don’t exfoliate regularly, which leaves dead skin to accumulate on the surface of your skin. By exfoliating weekly, you can reduce buildup and improve your skin’s radiance. After all, proper hydration not only boosts your skin’s complexion but helps you look younger as well.

Target Acne

Did you know that a facial could also target and treat breakouts? If you are someone who is dealing with acne-prone skin, our Georgetown, SC, skin doctor can customize a facial to meet your specific skincare needs. These facials usually use certain acne-fighting ingredients such as salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which can help heal current breakouts more quickly while preventing future acne from forming. During your facial, we will also examine your skin under a light to perform simple extractions to remove whiteheads and blackheads safely and effectively (remember, you shouldn’t pop pimples or pick at your skin.

Reduce Signs of Aging

There are many facials that are designed to improve the appearance and youthfulness of your skin. During these facials, specific anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid are used to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Getting these facials regularly can also be a great preventive measure for younger patients who want to keep their skin looking young and healthy.
