For many people, looking youthful is more important than ever. Thanks to its location and the amount of exposure it sees, improving the facialappearance of the facial skin is one of the best ways to brighten and renew your look. With many skin-enhancing procedures available, you may need some extra information to decide which is the best one for you. A quick, easy, and non-invasive way to rejuvenate your skin is with a facial. Find out more about facials with Dr. Christopher Sesslar at Spa Medicca medspa in the Dayton, OH area.

What can a facial do for me? 
A facial is a spa treatment which enhances the appearance by cleaning and exfoliating the skin. This treatment can work in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments available at Spa Medicca, such as Botox, cosmetic fillers, or laser treatments to help tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Many patients also use facials as part of their continuing skin care routine, scheduling monthly treatments.

What can I expect from a facial? 
A facial helps reduce instances of breakouts, provide a glowing and hydrated complexion, and firm the facial skin. The treatment itself will begin with cleansing and exfoliating the skin. This sloughs off dead skin cells which could give your skin a dull appearance. Your esthetician then uses steam to open the pores and begins the extraction process, which involves removing blackheads and, in some cases, whiteheads. Massage then helps increase blood flow in the skin and relax the mind and body. A facial mask then rejuvenates and hydrates the skin. Your esthetician then removes the mask and apply any special serums or creams which may benefit your skin.
