The Best Facial for Your Skin Type

Dermatology Associates of Rochester logo

Your skin is your body’s protective layer – and it works hard every single day. A facial is a good way to reward your skin, remove buildup, clear clogged pores, fill pores with antioxidants, and leave you with a relaxed, fresh look. Not all skin types, or complexions, are the same, and not all facials are the same. We make a facial recommendation based on your goals, your skin type and even your age. Learn more about the best facials for your skin type and what key ingredients or processes to keep an eye out for.

Facials for Acne Prone or Oily Skin Types
If you have this skin type, you’re usually hyper-sensitive to the products that you use daily on your face, including your cleanser, makeup, and lotions. A deep pore cleansing facial is good to schedule once a month or as recommended by your specialist to rebalance your skin. During your facial, steam is used to open your pores, and manual extractions can remove blackheads, whiteheads or impurities on the skin, eliminating bacteria under the skin. Follow this kind of treatment with a hydrating mask to relax your pores, and give your skin a drink.

Facials Customized For Teens
Your skin is more likely to be acne prone, or oily because of your body’s hormone distribution as you grow. However, teen skin is also more delicate, so light extractions and exfoliation are recommended for teens with acne or clogged pores.

Normal to Combination Skin
The word “normal” can be confusing, but we usually categorize this as a person with a relatively clear complexion, who experiences the occasional breakout or occasional bout of dry skin. If you keep up with a consistent face cleansing routine and aren’t in need of extractions, a basic refresher facial works for you. Your skin is thoroughly cleansed and moisturized, leaving your skin feeling softer and refreshed.

Aging or Mature Skin
Look for facials that increase luminosity – correcting your skin’s sun damage and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For aging skin types, customized cleaning masks with enzymes that will clear your pores and stimulate cell renewal, while breaking down dead skin cells. A gentle microdermabrasion or chemical peel can resurface healthy skin cells while eliminating dead ones that leave your skin with a lackluster appearance. Finish these deeper treatments with a soothing, hydrating mask to leave your skin vibrant, smooth, and toned.

Facials are a great way to reward your skin for it’s hard work, leaving you with clean and refreshed pores, and a radiant glow. We offer complimentary consultations to discuss any skin concerns with our specialist, prior to scheduling your facial. It’s important to know that while a daily skin care routine at home is important to your skin’s health, a deep-cleansing facial needs to be done by a professional. A customized treatment will ensure that you get the best results possible.
