A facial treatment in Singapore can help to solve specific skin issues such as acne, dry skin (psoriasis) and wrinkles, and to restore their skin’s health.
When clear, youthful skin continues to elude us despite the help of expensive skincare products and a carefully-planned skincare routine, facial treatments can help to boost skin repair and cell regrowth.
Depending on your skin type and goals, the benefits of facials can include:
There are several types of facial treatments that can help to solve your skin concerns. Read on to find out what these facial treatments consist of, how they work on different types of skin and what you can expect during a treatment.
Not all two skin types are alike, and the best way to determine the type of facial you need is through a skin analysis.
Through a series of questions, you and your therapist will gain a better understanding of the underlying causes of your skin condition, your current lifestyle habits that may be affecting them and if you have any skin allergies.
With this, your therapist will then recommend a facial treatment that suits your skin’s needs.
Depending on the type of facial you require, most facials may include some or all of the following procedures:
If you have dry skin, a facial treatment can help to repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier to keep the moisture in.
For oily or combination skin, your facial treatment may focus on regulating the sebum glands to reduce excessive oil production.
Getting a facial treatment in Singapore can relieve the following skin problems:
Acne or breakouts (source)
Whiteheads or blackheads (source)
Dry skin (source)
Oily or congested skin (source)
Wrinkles or sagging skin (source)
Depending on the type of treatment and its process, some facials may have minor side effects like itching or terrible redness afterwards which should heal in just a few days.
However, good facials should not further irritate your skin, cause allergies or any scarring.
Facial treatments are not the same as your daily skincare routine. Just like a monthly haircut, a facial treatment can be done only when needed.
It may be inadvisable to frequently go for facials that involve dermabrasion or extraction, as this can increase the risk of skin inflammation or sensitizing, which is a condition that is also known as chronic sensitive skin.
While they help to address specific skin concerns, your skin needs time to repair itself, and a facial can encourage that through cell regeneration.
Be it to reduce acne scars, tighten the skin, get rid of jowls or forehead wrinkles, or simply to have a fresher appearance, almost anyone can get a regular facial. The differences in facial treatment types in Singapore lie in specific skin type and skin concerns.
For example, facials for women may differ slightly from men’s facials.
There have been studies highlighting the differences in the skin types of both genders - and these findings have been more than useful for dermatologists and facial therapists in understanding the different skin needs.
Your therapist or dermatologist should be able to advise you on the next steps to take after your facial treatment, schedule your next session(s) as well as the that is required for your skin.
