FAQs About Custom Facials

What are custom facials and what can you expect from this salon or spa service? Whether you want to freshen your skin, reduce the signs of aging, or make your skin glow, take a look at what you need to know about custom facial treatments and your options. 

Are All Custom Treatments the Same? 

It's all in the name. A custom treatment isn't exactly that—a facial treatment that is customized for your skin. This means there isn't one treatment or a standard type of facial. A custom treatment is tailored to your individual facial needs. These facials could include moisturizing, exfoliating, brightening, oil-reduction, deep cleaning, or other treatment options that a professional personalizes for your skin. 

Why Choose A Custom Treatment? 

More specifically, what are the advantages or benefits of this type of custom skincare service? A custom treatment is one way to accomplish your skincare goals in a way that meets the specific needs you have. Instead of choosing between general facial treatments that may or may not target your individual skincare issues, this type of facial includes several steps that focus solely on your areas of concern.

Do You Always Have To Choose the Same Treatment?

You have an overall or general skin type. Some people have oily skin, while others have excessive dryness or combination skin. But this doesn't necessarily mean that your skin type will stay the same forever—or even over the next year. 

Hormonal changes, age, sensitivities, medical conditions, some types of medications, seasonal changes, and environmental pollutants inside and outside of your home can affect your skin. The treatment options you choose should follow these changes. If the dry winter air pulls the moisture from your skin you may need moisturizing and hydrating facials during the colder months of the year. 

As the weather changes and the humidity rises, you may not need as much facial hydration. Likewise, normal monthly hormonal fluctuations, a new allergy, a new allergy season, or progressive sun and age-related damage may make it necessary to overhaul your skincare routine. Along with changing the cleansers, toners, and moisturizers you use at home, you may also need to swap one type of facial treatment for a new custom option.

Where Can You Get A Custom Treatment?

These treatments are available at many salons, spas, day spas, and medical spas. Before you book your appointment make sure the esthetician or other facial professional has extensive experience creating personalized treatments for the conditions or issues you want to treat.
