Popular myths about facials portray them as special treats for women only, or as luxuries for the rich and famous. That’s too bad, because the truth is facials provide important health benefits for both men and women, famous or not. They clean, hydrate and condition your skin to help keep it healthy. Looking fresh and renewed afterward is a byproduct of this valuable treatment.
The facial process
Facials usually start with a consultation. At LIFT Aesthetic Surgery your aesthetician will evaluate your skin texture and tone, and ask about the skin products you use at home. She will discuss your specific concerns — do you have any problems areas such as blemishes, persistent dry or oil skin, acne or blackheads?
LIFT offers a variety of facials, dependent on the personalized skin analysis the aesthetician will perform at the beginning of the session. Facials may take from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how your facial is customized to your needs.

The benefits — for men and women
Skin that has been treated with a facial is cleaner and more hydrated than otherwise. You’ll have fresh, glowing skin, and any blemishes such as acne scars will be minimized. Women find that makeup goes on more easily, and men get a smoother shave after a facial. Your aesthetician may offer lotions and other products that are fragrance-free or have a scent designed for men. Aestheticians who work under a doctor’s supervision can use creams, oils and masks that are stronger and more effective than typical facial products.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and your face is the first place people look. Keeping your facial skin conditioned is good for both your physical and mental health. These positive effects can come with just one facial. To maintain them, you may want to schedule regular facials approximately every four to six weeks.
