The Importance of Facials for Mind and Beauty

It’s true that facials are relaxing and help your mind to de-stress, but they’re also important for maintaining skin health and targeting problematic skin issues. At Cara Plastic Surgery’s medical spa, our team will evaluate your skin to create the ideal facial treatment plan to get your skin looking the way it was always meant to.

Key Benefits of Regular Facials

  • Removes oil, dirt, dead skin, and debris
  • Exfoliates the skin
  • Improves a variety of skin issues (spots, wrinkles, pigmentation, etc.)
  • Keeps skin looking healthy, clear, and radiant
  • Promotes blood circulation
  • Slows aging (regular facials promote collagen production and cell regeneration for younger-looking skin)
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Boosts collagen
  • Powers up the skin and provides overall rejuvenation
  • Reduces stress and provides a mood boost

What Exactly Does a Facial Involve?

A facial is a multi-step treatment done on the face and neck with the goal of thoroughly cleansing, moisturizing, and improving the skin in a relaxing, soothing way. Improvement to the skin’s appearance is seen immediately, although it is temporary. Your facial treatment will be adjusted to match your individual skin type, needs, and goals. 


Cotton pads, wipes, or sponges will be used to gently clean your skin, followed by a cleansing product. 


A thin vapor of warm steam will be used to soften the skin and prepare it for easy extraction.


Your skin will be exfoliated to slough off dead skin cells, debris, oil, etc. and to open the pores for better use of products. If your facial includes extractions, they are typically done after exfoliation.

Facial Massage

Facials include face massaging, which encourages blood circulation. This helps your cells get lots of oxygen and nutrients for healthier cells and clearer skin. In addition, facial massages stimulate your sympathetic nervous system, which lowers your anxiety levels and gives you a mood boost.


A facial masque will be applied. There are many different types, and the masque chosen will be dependent on your specific skin concerns and goals. 


Once the masque is removed, serums, nutrients, sunscreen, etc. will be applied in accordance with your treatment plan. These products will work especially well since your pores have been opened.

What are Extractions?

Extractions may or may not be included with your specific facial. This will be discussed during your consultation. Many people want to simply have a relaxing facial, and extractions can be uncomfortable. However, they are an important part of the treatment for certain clients who want to target certain problems.

Although extractions can be the most challenging part of a facial, when performed by an experienced professional, they shouldn’t hurt too much. Your provider will use a magnifying lamp with a bright light to clearly see your pores that need to be addressed. Gentle pressure will be applied — either with the fingers or a special tool — around each pore to extract the contents.

How Often Should I Have Facials?

To keep your facial skin healthy, glowing, and clear, you should have facials from a trained professional on a regular basis. How often you go will depend on your skin type, condition, and problem areas. For example, for those with normal skin and no real skin issues, having a facial every 6-8 weeks is fine. However, those with oily skin or acne can benefit from facials every 2-4 weeks until their skin clears up. Those with sensitive skin and no skin issues can go every 8-12 weeks. Furthermore, your age, habits, lifestyle, skin changes, and frequency of breakouts must be considered. This is why personalized treatment plans are so important.
