The facial has many variations, and it can be very difficult to choose the right type on your own. Doing so requires considering skin type and known skin conditions, among other things. During a consultation at Persona Medical Spa, our team of professionals can assess your situation and determine which facial service is likely to give you amazing results.
There are five main types of skin: oily, normal, dry, combination and sensitive. Oily skin has overactive sebaceous glands. Blotting it with a tissue will leave oil spots on the tissue. People with oily skin can have large pores and be prone to acne. While oily skin is most common in young people, it can also be caused by pregnancy or hormonal imbalance. A tendency towards oily skin can run in families.
A person with oily skin, especially if they are prone to acne, can likely benefit from our Purifying Mask facial service. This treatment offers many benefits, including cleansing, exfoliation and oil reduction.
Dry skin has little oil, and it will often feel tight. It may also flake. People with dry skin often use moisturizers and gentle cleansers. Some people with dry skin will need to change their moisturizers based on the seasons. As a person’s skin becomes drier, their natural exfoliation cycle slows down, leading to those annoying flakes.
At Persona Medical Spa, we offer a great facial service for this known as the Dry Skin Facial. As the name implies, it is designed for patients with dry skin. People in this situation may also benefit from our Deep Hydration Facial.
Combination skin has a mix of dry and oily areas. Typically, the T-zone that is comprised of the forehead, nose and chin will be oily, while the rest of the face is dry. The right facial service for people with this type of skin will likely involve a combination approach.
A person with sensitive skin has skin with allergies or a condition like rosacea that makes them abnormally sensitive to certain chemicals or treatments. Sensitive skin is easily inflamed and irritated, and many moisturizers and cleansers contain ingredients that can cause reactions.
People with sensitive skin should avoid essential oils or anything else with a fragrance, for they contain ingredients that can irritate the skin. Products that contain alcohol, camphor or menthol can also irritate the skin. Clients with sensitive skin can likely benefit from our Rosacea Facial and/or our Calming Mask facial service.
Normal skin is neither too dry nor too oily. It will feel soft and smooth and have an even tone. A person lucky enough to have normal skin may choose virtually any facial service they like.
