Yeah, yeah, I should probably stop with the alliteration, but we’re going to let it go one more time with this facial business because we have 5 fabulous facials for you to try! Finding the right facial can be like trying to decide your all time favorite book or movie. How do you choose when there are so many options? While that can seem like an insurmountable task, it should also be a comfort because no two skin types are exactly the same, meaning, you can be sure to get a facial that’s perfectly right for your skin type. At 614 Beauty we specialize in the best anti-aging facials on the market right now and we’re here to help you choose the one that will work best for your skin. Much easier than choosing a favorite book.
The dermaplane facial is like exfoliation on steroids! This facial, not only scrapes off the dead skin cells, but also removes peach fuzz. It leaves the skin feeling crazy smooth and because it removes the top layer of skin (all the gross stuff) it can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
A dermaplane facial uses a scalpel tool that removes the dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) off the face. After the dermaplane procedure, the skin is ripe to receive and fully absorb skin care products like serums and moisturizers. The great thing about dermaplaning is that it can be added to most facial packages to maximize the results.
Hydrodermabrasion (yeah try saying that 5 times fast) is this amazing skincare technology that has killer results for anti-aging. It uses a dermabrasion device that extracts impurities from the skin while giving it a boost of moisturizing rehydration and infusing the skin with the best ingredients based on the skin’s specific needs. The combination of water and exfoliation makes the procedure more comfortable than traditional microdermabrasion. Bonus, it’s a gentle exfoliation treatment that works for sensitive skin types so double win there!
The results of a hydrodermabrasion facial are next level. Not only does it remove the dead skin layers, leaving your skin smooth, but the use of the dermabrasion tool also stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic flow making the skin healthier and younger looking! Sign me up for that one for sure.
Ready for an even cooler facial? Microcurrent facials are a non-invasive alternative to Botox, filler injections, or other facial surgeries. You definitely read that correctly! This treatment is taking over and for good reason. Microcurrent facials stimulate the muscles and connective tissues in the face to help tighten and smooth the skin reducing wrinkles and fine lines (typically around the forehead area).
The procedure consists of gliding stainless steel probes (“probes” are named accurately because I swear the rounded things totally remind me of something from the X-Files) using microcurrents of electricity (gentle pulses) through the epidermis. This signals receptors in the muscles below the skin’s surface and causes them to twitch and tingle giving the targeted area a “workout.” Microcurrent facials (like the hydrodermabrasion facial) improves blood circulation and lymphatic fluid circulation, allowing for better delivery of nutrients and moisture to the skin. Okay so this one might be my new favorite.
Chemical peels offer different things depending on the type. At 614 Beauty we have 7 different chemical peels available. The main target of a chemical peel though is to remove the top gunky, dry layer of skin (yes, most facials look to exfoliate, because it’s a key element in anti-aging!) to allow for smooth, blemish free skin.
These are known to balance skin tone, increase firmness of the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, remove age spots and blemishes, and give the skin a more youthful appearance.
It’s important to follow the after care instructions for these though given by your esthetician, because the skin will have extra sensitivity and redness due to these types of facials.
Like most skincare, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it can be changed up to suit your needs. We all have different skincare concerns and having the right esthetician to guide toward the right type of treatment is key. 614 Beauty provides the opportunity for a fully customizable facial experience so you can be assured your skin is receiving exactly what it needs!
We know there are about a 100 different other types of facials out there, but we hope these 5 give you an excellent starting point because we just can’t get enough of these and want you to enjoy them as much as we do! Ready to book? Sign up HERE.
