Is there actually a magic number for how often you should get a facial? Well, yes and no. Dermatologists recommend getting a facial once a month. This is because it’s not frequent enough to irritate the skin, and this timing works with our skin turnover cycle, which is 28 days. Of course, there are exceptions to this rule. 

It also depends heavily on your skin goals and which procedure you’re going to use to achieve them. It’s very important to get a professional assessment from a dermatologist to determine the best timeframe for you. A professional from Best Self Medical Arts can help you with a treatment plan.

What Kind Of Facials Are Available? 

There are many options available for facials, and almost any skin problems can be treated. These options include chemical peels, LED facials, microdermabrasion, and HyDraFacials. Let’s focus on the last one; HydraFacials or hydrating facials. This treatment has been designed to heal and hydrate the skin while stimulating and rejuvenating skin cells. The main purpose of this treatment is to restore skin vitality, health, and youth.

Benefits Of Regular Hydrating Facials

While no one needs to have a regular hydrating facial, there are many benefits to doing so. If you find your skin feeling dry or irritated or looking flaky, a regular hydrating facial can do wonders. Changes in seasons can also leave skin feeling dry and irritated, so it’s important to care for your skin in colder and warmer weather, especially when the weather is changing.

Hydrating Facials Consultations Available


Regular hydrating facials are a great option for looking after your skin. Some fantastic benefits of hydrating facials you can enjoy include:

  • Hydrated and supple skin
  • Brighter looking skin
  • Softer and smoother skin
  • Fewer acne breakouts as a hydrating facial regulate oil levels in the skin
  • Less dryness, irritation, and flakiness

Can’t I Just Treat My Skin At Home? 

If this treatment is focused on rejuvenating the skin, can’t I just do it at home? While professional facials on a regular basis can be expensive, there is no substitute for quality. At-home treatments such as exfoliants and hydrating creams are great options for skincare between treatments, but they can’t be expected to be as effective as professional treatments. 

We recommend a mixture of the two; professional treatments and skin care at home in between. If you’re going to be putting anything on your skin at home, make sure you invest in quality products and devices.
