The importance of getting facials regularly

Professional focused facial treatments don’t just leave you with a healthy glow, they aid in reducing tension and stimulate collagen production all while increasing circulation and vitality! Here are a few of the many reasons why regular facials are beneficial.

SLOWER AGING PROCESS

We know we can’t stop the clock when it comes to aging, but we can let you know that there are ways to slow it down! Boosting cell regeneration by getting routine facials will help promote collagen development, which will help skin’s elasticity. As you get older, your skin becomes more and more prone to oxidative damage from the free radicals that are accumulated. Professional facials are designed to help combat the signs of aging, slowing down the process to help maintain a more youthful appearance.

DEEP CLEANSE

Sure, you can wash your face using your at-home cleanser multiple times a day, but you’ll get an even deeper cleanse with a professional focused facial. Removing dirt, bacteria, oil, and other toxins are just a few of the many things that a facial can do when getting deep into your pores. We highly suggest trying a Hydrafacial treatment, which cleanses, extracts, and hydrates using 18 super serums that are made with nourishing ingredients, creating an instant glow.

EXFOLIATION

As skin cells die, they pile up on the surface of your skin, causing it to feel rough and dry. Exfoliation is the process that gently sloughs off that top layer. At The Face Foundry, we highly suggest our custom peel enhancement to clients to reveal a healthy, glowing (new) layer of skin. Our professional peel is a unique option for all clients, including those with highly sensitive skin. It helps improve surface texture and brightens the skin all while helping to promote an even skin tone.

CIRCULATION

Bad circulation can become very noticeable in your face. It can cause skin to look dull and pallid. Professional facials improve circulation, boosts blood flow, and boosts oxygen to your cells…this plumps and helps to provide the skin with essential nutrients.

STRESS RELIEF

Facials are more than just great for your skin. They’re good for YOU! We strongly encourage our staff and clients alike to always make self-care a priority. Your face has hundreds of pressure points that are connected to various systems in your body. Facial massage not only keeps your skin glowing, but it also affects the functioning of the other organs. From facial reflexology to lymphatic drainage, these effective methods have been shown to help reduce stress levels.

Facials are more than just 40 minutes of “me” time… here’s to defying gravity and slowing down the aging process!

Reap the Benefits of Vitamin K

Vitamin K often gets overlooked when it comes to fantastic skincare ingredients. The nutrients that come from it play a huge role in keeping your skin healthy and beautiful. Our Vitamin K Creme is a wonderful addition to your skincare routine because it can be used alongside the products you already own. It can be used on your body as well!

  • IT PROTECTS AGAINST OXIDATION

    • It’s potent antioxidant properties promotes healthy skin and prevents against the harmful effects of free radicals. It aids in cell renewal which helps maintain a softer, glowing, and more youthful complexion. As soon as the dead skin cells are eliminated, the new and fresher skin cells will be exposed.

  • SAY GOODBYE TO DARK UNDER EYE CIRCLES

    • The delicate skin around our eyes is extremely thin. Dark circles commonly happen because of how fragile the blood vessels are. When they break, blood leaks to the surrounding skin resulting in discoloration. Vitamin K can be used on any region of our face and bodies - it helps dissipate bruising and discoloration when penetrated into the skin.

  • VITAMIN K SOOTHES INFLAMMATION

    • The inflammatory skin problems that result from eczema and psoriasis can be reduced by the anti-inflammatory properties of our Vitamin K Creme!

If you haven’t got the point of this blog post yet… here is the short summary. This product is a jack of all trades and your skin is begging for it!

Summer Skin

B O D Y  A C N E
The dreaded bacne has made its way back into our lives.  The skin on your body can handle something a little stronger when it comes to exfoliation.  If you do not have our Salicylic Face and Body Wash, we also love a good peppermint wash!  

B R E A K O U T S 
It's natural to sweat more in the summer months, whether you're running around after kids or outside dealing with a heat wave, it can lead to breakouts you didn't see coming. 
Last week we sent out an email teaching all of you the order of operations when it comes to your skincare routine.  We can't stress enough how important it is to keep up with that routine.  You must cleanse morning and night, clearing away any debris.  

O I L Y  S K I N 
People tend to use an alcohol-based toner when struggling with oily skin. However, it can dehydrate your skin, which just produces more oil! With that summer heat and all of that sunscreen, you may notice your skin is more oily than usual. We suggest using a gel cleanser in the morning to help control the oil (Chamomile Facial Cleanser).

Cocktails and spicy foods may hit the spot on a hot night. But they won't do your skin any favors; they dilate blood vessels, and make you perspire. Limit yourself to one drink a night, and eat spicy foods no more than once a week. And consider loading up instead on carrots, cantaloupe, and spinach; foods like these that are high in vitamin A can actually slow oil production.


D E H Y D R A T I O N
This one is always a big problem in the summer. Make sure you’re consuming enough fluids to balance what you’re losing from sweat. its also important to add hydration to your skincare routine - we highly suggest consistent use of our Hyaluronic Acid Firming Boost Serum. You can read all about it if you click the link!


S U N B U R N
Sunscreen should be your best pal all summer long. It’s one of the only products that we suggest reapplying consistently throughout the day. Fight the signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and skin cancer by wearing an SPF 30+ daily.

Face Foundry Tips to Glowing Skin

We are here to explain how to get baby smooth texture and appearance, thank us later!

WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that removes the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz. This is done with a sterile scalpel by gently scraping your skin resulting in a healthier, brighter, and smoother complexion.

WILL THE HAIR GROW BACK THICKER AND DARKER?

Women grow hair on their faces too, its just part of life. We often get asked if the hair will grow back thicker and darker afterwards, and the answer is absolutely not! We would have some very angry ladies if that were the case. It is actually physiologically impossible - the soft vellus hair will grow back slowly and will be the same thickness and color as it always has been.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR DERMAPLANING?

We don’t find ourselves turning people down very often for this particular treatment, but in some cases we don’t always suggest it. People with oily, acne-prone skin should shy away from Dermaplaning because the razor can actually break the skin where there is cystic acne and/or breakouts. This can cause the condition to get worse and lead to more breakouts. We also do not recommend this treatment if you are very sensitive or are using prescription strength Retinoids or on Accutane.

Anyone with hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and acne-scarring is an ideal client for Dermaplaning. Mature and aging skin types with fine lines and/or wrinkles will also benefit from this!

This physical exfoliation is especially safe for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers who cannot get chemical peels.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET THIS SERVICE DONE?

We suggest getting the Dermaplaning treatment done every 4 weeks or so. During the next 3 weeks after the treatment, your skin continues to generate new skin cells and collagen. Doing the treatment too soon can actually counteract all of the good that the treatment had to offer. The skin needs time to heal for optimal results!

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY?

Good news! There is no down time at all. There is no particular recovery regimen, besides taking precautions to stay out of the sun of course!

HOW DO I SCHEDULE THIS SERVICE?

We have a few different options when it comes to this treatment!

Dermaplaning can be added onto any of our services here at The Face Foundry. For example; if you choose to get the Foundry Glow Facial, you can add the Dermaplaning Enhancement.

If you are looking for a facial on the fly, you can schedule one of our Mini Facials and then choose Dermaplaning during your consultation; your Esthetician will ask you to choose between a Custom Peel, Mask, or Dermaplaning!

Hydrafacial + Dermaplaning combination

Red Carpet ready in 40 minutes? Say no more! We begin with Dermaplaning for an extra level of rejuvenation; once the skin is peach-fuzz free, part II begins: the Hydrafacial.

The Hydrafacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in dewy glowy skin with no discomfort or downtime. It provides a powerful boost of hydration directly into the skin with peptides, hydrating ingredients and antioxidants that act as a skin barrier as well.

Aside from a little redness immediately post-procedure (this varies between each person), this is the perfect treatment for same-day events!

Lets get you on the schedule!
