Your skin is beautiful, natural, and strong; it protects you on a daily basis and takes a lot of damage in the process. It can be hard to combat wrinkles, fine lines, acne and other issues with your skin. Sometimes, it seems like nothing helps! Never fear - the brightening facial is here, and it may be just what you need.
What is a brightening facial?
A brightening facial is a treatment that lightens and enhances your skin's natural color and glow. It comes in the form of a topical serum that is allowed to set on the face for a certain period of time - roughly 1-2 hours depending on the procedure. Many brightening treatments use micro current and ultrasonic waves to exfoliate the skin, which helps open the pores and maximizes the benefits of the facial.
How does it work?
During the ultrasonic exfoliation process, dead skin cells and excess oils are lifted from the face, which allows the serum to penetrate deeper into the skin. This serum typically contains lactic acid.Then ferulic acid is infused into the skin by ultrasonic waves with microcurrent- these acids act as stimulants to increase cell renewal as well as antioxidants to remove unwanted cell debris and prevent the formation of hyperpigmentation. The procedure is great for treating skin issues such as:
- Age spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Dark under-eye circles
- Rough skin texture
Overall, the process leaves your skin lighter, softer and with a revitalized glow.
How often should you get one?
Most aestheticians recommend getting a brightening facial once every 4-6 weeks, as this is about how long your skin takes to go through an entire cellular life cycle. That means your body will have created a whole new generation of cells that will grow and eventually die during this period. This time frame gives your skin a chance to react to the facial without overwhelming your delicate cells.
Are there any side effects?
As with most facial treatments, some side effects may occur. Brightening treatments are fairly gentle, so any side effects are usually very mild - some minor redness or irritation may occur, but this typically subsides within a day or two of treatment. You may experience light tingling, burning or itchiness; this will also go down shortly after the procedure.
With all that your skin does for you, it deserves the best treatment you can possibly give it.
