When many people think of facials, they think of a soothing mask with cucumbers on the eyes — but there can be so much more to a facial. While these skin treatments are very relaxing, they can also significantly improve the health of your skin and address specific skin concerns.

Whether you’re looking for facials for acne, skin discoloration, or uneven texture, we’ve got you covered. Contact Madison Medispa in Madison, WI, to schedule your facial appointment today. 

What Is a Facial?

A facial is a skin care treatment that offers skin a multitude of benefits. Depending on the type of facial you opt for, these treatments might involve:

  • Deep cleansing
  • Exfoliation
  • Steam
  • Extraction
  • Masks
  • Peels
  • Massages

Facials allow you to relax while we work step-by-step to complete your treatment. By the end of a facial appointment, you can expect to feel rested with cleaner, more glowing skin. 

Skin Concerns Facials Can Address

Facials can support general skin health and help keep skin clean, soft, and glowing, but they are also frequently used to address specific skin concerns, such as:

  • Acne
  • Oily skin
  • Dry skin
  • Rosacea
  • Blackheads
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Uneven tone and texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Before you begin your treatment, we would like to assess your skin and discuss your desired results in order to recommend the right facial for you. Our goal is to improve the look and feel of your skin so you can glow from the inside out. 

Facials Are Beneficial for Healthy Skin

Facials are one of the most popular skin care treatments due to the vast benefits they provide patients:

  • Cleaner, less congested skin
  • Skin cell renewal
  • Anti-aging support
  • Better circulation
  • Diminished acne and acne scars
  • Smoother, tighter skin
  • Better absorption of skin care products
  • More even skin tone and texture

On top of the skin benefits of facials, these treatments can also help reduce stress and promote relaxation. Patients not only love the improved health of their skin but also look forward to uninterrupted self-care time. 

Types of Facials We Offer

We offer several types of facials aimed at tackling specific skin problems and promoting healthy, glowing skin. 

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is excellent for exfoliation and skin cell turnover. During a dermaplaning treatment, we take a special sharp tool and gently pass it over your face, removing the very top layer of your skin. By doing so, we rid your skin of dead cells, unclogging pores and clearing skin imperfections. 

Dermaplaning can help treat many skin issues:

  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged, clogged pores
  • Dry, dull skin
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines

On top of the skin care benefits dermaplaning provides, it also removes the tiny hairs on the face called “peach fuzz.” Without dead skin cells or peach fuzz, you can expect your skin care products to absorb better and your makeup to go on more smoothly. 

Patients can either schedule dermaplaning on its own or add the treatment to facials for acne, rosacea, or other concerns. 

Chemical Peels

During a chemical peel, we thoroughly cleanse the skin and then apply a chemical solution. This solution will be tailored to your skin and its needs. 

Chemical peels remove the top layers of skin to reveal brighter, healthier skin. They can address many skin problems:

  • Discoloration
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Enlarged pores

Because everyone has different skin sensitivities, we offer different strengths of chemical peels. Choosing a chemical peel that has just the right intensity is key for ideal results. 

Custom Facials

We pride ourselves on offering custom facials. You cannot just pick these facials from a menu because we believe facials aren’t one-size-fits-all. While some methods and products may work for you, they won’t be the best fit for others. That’s why we completely customize your facial and tailor your treatment to your skin’s needs.

During a consultation, we can determine your skin type and the status of your skin health to create a facial treatment just for you, including facials for acne, sun damage, or enlarged pores.

Frequently Asked Questions We Hear About Facials

Whether it’s your first time or you’re experienced with facials, you’re likely to have questions. We’ve addressed some of the questions our patients regularly ask below. 

Do I Have to Do Any Aftercare After a Facial?

Your facial aftercare instructions depend on the type of facial treatment you get. We may suggest things like staying out of the sun or using mild skin care products. We always recommend using SPF every day to protect your skin and maintain results. 

How Often Should I Be Getting Facials?

The answer to this question depends entirely on the patient. The frequency of facials depends on certain details, including:

  • Your skin type
  • Your skin concerns
  • Your skin goals

When you come in, we can examine your skin and create a treatment plan based on your wants, needs, and desired outcome. We’ll recommend what types of facials would be right for you and how often you should schedule them to achieve your goals and maintain your skin health. 

Can I Get Different Types of Facials?

Yes! You can combine different facials based on your needs and also switch up your treatments. In fact, we may recommend different treatments to maximize your results and help your skin look and feel its best.
