Anatomy of a Facial

A facial is a procedure involving a variety of skin treatments, including: steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, and massage.  Facials can last anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour and range in price depending on the types of products used for the treatments.  They are professionally recommended every 4 weeks for maximum results.

That's NOT Botox.

Another strong misunderstanding a lot of people have around the Boston Area is what products go where Botox does not.   If it's caused by gravity:  THAT'S NOT BOTOX! HYALURONIC ACID (HA) FILLERS (TEMPORARY) Hyaluronic acid fillers are synthetic sugars that attract water molecules.  They are placed in actual wrinkles or other areas that need volume and offer instant results.

Step 1: See a Professional

It’s easy to think you know how to take care of your skin, the media bombards women with “product knowledge.”  Healthcare is never cut in dry (fact for all you medline readers).  Without education and experience in a subject, we have no business self-diagnosing and dictating a plan of action.  It's finding the right man for the right job. Like in most aspects of healthcare, preventative care is not usually the route we choose.  Ever notice how European women have beautiful skin?  Part of the reason is because they see aestheticians.  Often. Your skin is an organ; in fact, it’s the largest organ of your body.  It provides your...
