What Types of Facials Are Right for You?

Are you suffering from skin issues on and around your face or looking to rejuvenate your skin to correct the unattractive signs of ageing? Whatever the problem is that you have, you may be thinking of attending a spa or clinic to have a facial. But, if you have ever looked at the average price list of a health spa or skincare and cosmetic surgery, you will probably have noticed that there is a dizzying amount of different treatments available.

Even within the category of facials, there are several different options. So, how do you know what’s right for you? In the following post, we aim to help by giving a brief overview of the most common types of facials available.

Acupuncture Facials

As the name suggests, this is a facial that involves the use of acupuncture needles. In fact, roughly 30 are usually used and they are pushed about 1mm into your skin, in troublesome areas such as your crow’s feet, forehead and frown lines. Although it may sound a little on the painful side, it is quite a relaxing treatment and the needles are in for approximately 15 minutes. They are then taken out and within an hour or so later, you will already start to see signs of your skin looking better.

Microdermabrasion Facial

One of the most effective and certainly quickest ways to restore your skin to the healthy and youthful look and feel it had before life got in the way is by getting rid of the old layers of dead skin that have built up. This is possible with microdermabrasion which utilizes a pressurized jet to scour across your skin projecting micronized crystals (often of aluminum oxide) before a special vacuum is used to remove all the dead skin cells.

One thing you need to be aware of when having this procedure done is to be sure to have it done by a clinic or spa that uses a machine with adjustable grit settings that ensures it will be the most suitable treatment for the type of skin you have. Avoid booking this type of facial the same day you have an engagement or event to attend because it could leave you with rosy cheeks for a while afterwards. This is one of the Winnipeg facials at Myuz.

LED Facial

It may sound like something from a science fiction movie but trust us, it’s real and involves the use of specific LED light wavelengths to reduce inflammation and breakouts on your skin. Which makes it perfect for anyone with redness issues or prone to acne. While one treatment is often enough to improve things, if you have serious breakouts, it could take as much as three sessions to see a real difference.

Lymphatic Massage Facial

Do you grind your teeth or clench your jaw to try and ease stress? If so, it may be time to consider having a lymphatic massage facial. This involves kneading over special target points on your face to unlock the pressure and could also reduce, even if just temporarily, puffy skin.

Diamond file Facial 

For something a little extravagant, when you really want to feel like a flashy celebrity, why not consider a diamond file facial. This involves the use of real, genuine, crushed diamonds that are filed all over your skin. It feels a bit like having a cat lick you. Which is probably preferable to the feeling of being filed or sanded down. There are some OTT claims that this facial can completely resurface your skin. However unfounded that might be, it is a really good treatment for reducing any dark spots you have.
