Why Professional Facials are Better Than Over-the-Counter Products

Jan 8, 2018 | Facials, Skin Care

We’ve all heard about the many benefits of facials, but not all facials are the same. Professional facials work wonders on your skin, unlike some of the over-the-counter products that are available at many drugstores. Getting a professional facial from North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic is always a great benefit to your skin!



Professional Facials Offer Many Benefits

Extractions—Although many at-home facials can exfoliate your skin, only a professional facial will offer the added benefit of removing blackheads by pinching and massaging the skin around it. Only a professional will be able to remove these with the proper techniques without inflaming your pores or leaving red marks that can linger for weeks.

Exfoliation at the professional strength—As you may have guessed, exfoliation products that are used at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic are much stronger and more concentrated than those you can buy at a store. Because of this, you can get much more dramatic and much more visible results with a professional facial than with an over-the-counter product found at a drugstore or other makeup store.

Customized treatment—If you have a specific skin care area or issue that you would like to target in the facial, you can certainly have a customized treatment just for you. Facials usually begin with a skin consultation so that our experts can help to determine which types of facials will be most beneficial for your type of skin. Your esthetician can also recommend products that you should use at home to make sure that your skin is in its optimal health and condition.

Facials are great for your skin and can improve the look of lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production! To learn more about our facials at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic, or to schedule an appointment with a skin care expert, call (480) 513-2888.
