Are facials a regular part of your skincare routine? If not, you need to update your routine, because facials are magical for the skin.

To easiest way to glowing, clear skin is to book yourself into the clinic for a relaxing and rejuvenating facial.

Most people will follow a skincare routine to help maintain their skin, but the benefits of a facial go far beyond what people may think is an indulgence they can't afford.

1. Helps to alleviate stress

In todays fast-paced lifestyle, it has become the norm to live with everyday stress, with 74% of UK adults reporting feeling under stress and overwhelmed with day-to-day life. It is vital to start to protect your skin from the age of 30, or the stress will start to take a tole on your face. A very effective way to combat stress is to regularly book a facial treatment.

2. Prevents ageing

Hands up who wants to look younger for longer. ME! Facials are fantastic for helping to accelerate the cell regeneration process, as well as promote collagen development (the main structural protein found in various connective tissues) This helps prevents fine lines and wrinkles on your face, giving you younger-looking skin.

3. Reduces blemishes

Facials promote blood circulation and remove dirt from the pores. Massages also give an even tone to the skin, reducing blemishes and giving a fairer complexion. Frequent facial appointments can reduce all these skin problems and give you healthy, younger-looking skin.

4. Treats acne and acne marks

If you suffer from acne you will understand the scarring it can leave behind. They can be stubborn, but with the help of facials you can actually reduce acne marks.

The "Obagi Acne Express Facial" is the perfect choice for acne prone skin. This 60-minute facial specifically targets acne, blackheads, and whiteheads. This deep cleansing facial uses active ingredients to penetrate the skin, targeting the sebaceous gland (which is usually misbehaving in an acneic skin). In addition to the active ingredients used in this facial our Obagi Hydrate Moisturiser and SPF is specifically designed to improve acne and will never block or clog the pores.

5. Skin detoxification

One of the benefits of facials is detoxification of the skin. Almost all facials use skin products rich in antioxidants that can help detoxify the skin. The products also contain essential oils and herbal extracts, which help in the detoxification process.

Our "Obagi Antioxidant Force Field Facial" is perfect to detoxify the skin. With an added boost of vitamin C, your skin will look and feel radiant, alongside the relaxing facial massage and lymphatic drainage massage that you will encounter during your treatment.

6. Dead skin cells

One of the main benefits to having regular facials is a brighter and clearer complexion. This is because your skin is given steam which opens your pores and treated with a mild scrub that exfoliates dead skin cells.

The scrub removes the tiniest of dull and dead skin, which leads to soft and smooth skin. Exfoliation also removes blackheads and whiteheads from the chin and nose with the excess sebum on your T-zone that leads to acne.

7. De-puffs the eyes

Another benefit is that facials offer under-eye care. The use of special under-eye creams which moisturise and nourish that area can help to reduce under-eye puffiness.

8. Reduces pigmentation

If you have pigmented skin or uneven skin tone on your face and neck area, then regular facials can help you. This type of pigmentation can occur due to melanin production, sun exposure and internal disease.

Facials can improve blood circulation and help in giving an even skin tone. If you have pigmentation, you should opt for the "Obagi Enrich Facial" which specifically caters to this issue. This facial is best for those looking for instant skin radiance with little down time. The Enrich Facial is a more active treatment revealing tighter, smoother, and brighter-looking skin after just 1 facial.

9. Get expert advice

Many people have the same skincare routine for years, and never actually speak to a professional about what their skin really needs. Facials come with expert advice. All facials will begin with a skin consultation so we can gain a thorough understanding of your medical history, skin condition, problem areas and your overall treatment goals. We can then suggest skincare products that will benefit your skin, that you can add to your daily skincare routine.

10. Added extras

There are a lot of extras that you can add to a facial to get the most out of your treatment. For a small added fee you can add:

  • Microneedling

  • Radio frequency

  • Dermaplane

  • Microdermabrasion

  • ​Carbon doll facial

  • Pigmentation

  • Acne treatment

  • Rosacea treatment
