Frequently Asked Questions About Facials

Facials are one way to elevate your skincare through special treatments. With a variety of types of facials, it's beneficial to know what's best for you before setting an appointment at Facials by Tonya. Here are a few questions to ask before, during, or after one of our facials: 

What Is a Facial?

A facial is a skincare treatment involving various steps to cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish the skin on the face. It can include steaming, extractions, facial massages, masks, and the application of various skincare products tailored to your skin type and concerns.

What Are the Benefits of Getting a Facial?

Facials can offer several benefits for the skin, including hydration and rejuvenation. These treatments can help improve skin tone and texture. They can also help unclog pores, reduce acne and blemishes, increase blood circulation, and promote relaxation. You may see a general boost to the overall health and appearance of the skin.

How Often Should I Get a Facial?

The frequency that you get a facial depends on many factors, including your skin type, concerns, and budget. Speak with a skincare professional to determine how often you should get a facial. People with specific skin issues or undergoing a targeted treatment plan may need more frequent visits, depending on their skin's condition before the facial and how it reacts to the treatment.

What Skin Type Can Receive a Facial?

Most facials can be customized to suit different skin types, including dry, oily, sensitive, and combination skin. Skincare professionals can customize the treatment and product selection to address specific concerns and keep skin healthy. All skin types can receive facials, but some may not need to get these treatments as often as others.

Are There Any Side Effects of Getting a Facial?

Facials are generally considered to be safe, but some people may experience temporary side effects. These side effects may include redness, slight sensitivity, or minor breakouts after a facial. These effects are usually mild and subside within a day or two. Facials are often used to help heal breakouts, so they may encourage acne healing. Be sure to communicate any allergies, skin conditions, or sensitivities to the esthetician before the treatment to reduce the risk of negative reactions.

How Long Does a Facial Treatment Last?

The length of a facial treatment can differ depending on the type of facial and the specific steps involved. Some specialized facials or add-on treatments might take longer. Express or mini facials may be shorter and require less preparation. Ask your esthetician how long the treatment will take to make sure you allot the time in your schedule. 

Can I Wear Makeup After a Facial?

It may be recommended to avoid applying heavy makeup immediately after a facial to allow the skin to breathe and fully absorb the benefits of the treatment. If you need to wear makeup, choose lightweight products and wait a few hours after the facial to apply them. Our skincare professionals can give specific guidelines based on your skin's condition and the products used during the facial. You will receive different skin preparation based on the time of day of your appointment.
