Has your skin lost its usual glow? A facial can alleviate dullness and improve the texture and condition of your skin. Centerville, OH's Spa Medicca, headed by Dr. Christopher Sesslar, offers a variety of facials that will help repair and restore your skin.

How can facials improve my skin?

Cleansing is an important part of your facial, but the treatment involves much more than simply washing your face. Before your treatment begins, the esthetician will evaluate your skin and create a treatment that addresses your specific concerns. The first step in the facial process is Exfoliation, a treatment that gently sloughs away dead skin cells that dull your complexion, The treatment unclogs blocked pores, makes wrinkles a little less noticeable, reduces the size of large pores and prepares your skin to absorb serums and moisturizers.

After exfoliating your skin, your esthetician will use a special tool to remove whiteheads and blackheads, if necessary. Next comes the massage, one of the aspects of facials that Centerville clients particularly enjoy. The massage improves lymph drainage, increases blood circulation, reduces puffiness, increases collagen production, improves skin elasticity, and helps relax your facial muscles.

Your treatment will conclude with the application of masks, moisturizers, serums, and other products. These products add moisture to your skin, which minimizes the appearance of fine lines and makes your skin feel smooth and soft.

What types of facials are best?

Your esthetician may recommend one or more of these popular facial treatments:

  • Youth Facial: The facial is designed to restore collagen and elastin, tone facial muscles, reduce sun damage signs, improve moisture. and even protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun's rays.
  • Oxygen Infusion Therapy: An airbrush oxygen machine infuses oxygen, peptides, and hyaluronic acid into your skin, reducing wrinkles and plumping your skin.

Whether you already have a skincare routine that you love, or are looking for a solution to common issues like acne, sun damage, fine facialslines, and wrinkles or premature aging, facials are the perfect solution for addressing your skin care needs at the moment, addressing past damage, and giving your face a healthy, younger-looking glow. Dr. Christopher Sesslar offers a number of skin care treatments including facials, injectables, and laser skin therapy at Spa Medicca in the Dayton, OH area.

Facials and Skin Rejuvenation in Dayton

Facials offer a number of benefits for your skin's health and appearance, which can have a positive effect on everything from confidence and self-esteem to overall quality of life. Studies have shown that both men and women admit to feeling self-conscious about their appearance due to common dermatology related problems such as acne scarring, loose, sagging skin, and fine lines and wrinkles to name a few.

There are many different types of facials, which can be tailored to your skin's unique condition and needs. A facial can even help your existing products and skincare routine to be more effective by clearing your pores of oil and dirt buildup that can lead to breakouts, but can also make it more difficult for your skin to absorb vital nutrients.

Some of the many benefits of investing in a facial as part of your regular skincare routine include:

Personalized care and treatment - Because your skin is completely different from everyone else's, there is no such thing as a "one size fits all" solution. Facials provide cleansing, toning, and moisturizing at the level and degree that is right for your skin.

Relaxation - Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, and other lifestyle factors that are common with busy schedules can take a toll on your complexion. In addition to the aesthetic portion of a facial treatment, a regular spa appointment is an accessible and affordable way to relax and unplug for an hour or two.

Minimally invasive treatments - If you are looking for a simple and affordable treatment to elevate your skincare routine, reverse past damage, and get younger looking skin without surgical treatments, a facial is a great place to start.

Facials help keep your skin looking and feeling great. With so many kinds of facials available, it's not always easy to decide which one is facialsbest for your skin. Christopher Sesslar, M.D., of Medicca, Dayton, OH's premier med spa, shares information about several types of facials.

Exfoliating facials

Exfoliating facials gently remove dead cells from the surface of your skin. They're the perfect choice if you want to brighten dull skin, lessen the appearance of fine wrinkles and make your skin tone look more even. Exfoliation is an important part of many types of facials. Some exfoliating facials use microdermabrasion to produce results. During treatment, a small device sands away dead skin with special crystals. Microdermabrasion not only helps smooth skin, but also reduces the appearance of brown patches or age spots.

Anti-aging facials

Anti-aging facials help reduce those fine lines and other signs of aging. After exfoliating your skin, your Dayton esthetician will use products that contain antioxidants, such as vitamin C or hyaluronic acid, to help your skin retain moisture. These facials may also include chemical peels, collagen masks and other treatments that help your skin look younger.

Acne facials

Facials can be very beneficial for people who suffer from acne. Excess oil production often leads to clogged pores and those characteristic red blemishes. Acne facials treat the source of the problem by deep cleaning pores to remove excess oil. Your Dayton esthetician may also use antibacterial products on your skin to help prevent future acne flare ups.

Moisturizing facials

Dry, flaky skin worsens the appearance of fine lines and tends to make your complexion look dull. As the name implies, these facials provide your skin with much needed moisture, leaving it soft, supple and smooth.

Sensitive skin facials

Think you can't have a facial because your skin reacts to too many products or you have rosacea? Sensitive skin facials use products specially formulated to calm skin and promote an even skin tone without irritation.

As you age, you may be feeling a little-self conscious about wrinkles, spots and discolorations on your face that even the most high-end products and makeup can't treat. At Medicca, a med spa located in Dayton, Ohio, we offer a variety of facial treatments to combat these facialscommon problems. Dr. Christopher Sesslar and his highly-trained staff have answered a few of the questions they hear most frequently about facials at Medicca.

What types of facials are available?

At Medicca in Dayton, Ohio, we offer a variety of facial treatments, all aimed at giving you radiant, glowing skin. There are simple exfoliation and extraction treatments that clean and refresh the skin. We also offer chemical peels and microdermabrasion, both of which smooth your skin and minimize sun damage and discoloration. All of our treatments begin with a cleansing and evaluation of your skin by a facial technician.

What is a chemical peel?

An Esthetician at your Dayton med spa will begin the process of this facial treatment by applying an exfoliating solution to your face. The ingredients in this solution, which include alpha hydroxy acids, sloughs off the damaged outermost layer of skin, leaving behind a smoother, renewed surface with less wrinkles and "sun spots." A moisturizer is applied afterwards.

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion facials at your Dayton med spa also use exfoliation to reveal unblemished skin, but this process is a physical one. Your facial technician gently uses a device that works like a vacuum to pull dead skin away from your skin.

How many facial treatments are needed?

The best results are usually achieved through a series of treatments. For simple facials, our staff recommends visiting Medicca in Dayton every one to two months. Microdermabrasion typically is offered in a series of six treatments, spaced out every two to four weeks. Chemical peels should be repeated once every few months, or more often depending on the condition of your skin and the strength of your peel. Consulting with one of our med spa staff members will help determine which treatment schedule is right for you.
