What to look for in a facial

Facials – they’re the cornerstone of skincare and a fantastic entry point into the world of non-invasive aesthetic treatments. Perfect for helping you maintain a healthy and glowing complexion, they should definitely be a staple of your beauty routine – if they’re not already.  

Like with any aesthetic treatment though, it’s important to think carefully when selecting what facial treatment is right for you as they’re not all created equally. Here’s what to look for: 

Use of high-quality medical grade cosmeceuticals

The products used during your facial will determine both the quality and length of your results. Make sure whatever treatment you choose uses high-quality medical grade cosmeceuticals. This includes products containing essential vitamins and acids that will penetrate deeply into your skin to cleanse, smooth and plump. 

A mask tailored to your skin type

Masks and peels should be tailored to your individual skin type in order to achieve the best result. Our RATIONALE Enzyme Reactivation Facial™ is a great example of this. During this treatment, we use a proven system of in-clinic skin treatments depending on your skin condition. The lactic acid range is used for sun damage, the salic acid range for breakouts, congestion and enlarged pores, and the pyruvic acid range for sensitive or more mature skin. The results are brighter, clearer, rejuvenated skin.  

Light-therapy add ons

LED Light therapy is a great complementary treatment to facials. A calming treatment, LED light is technology that targets specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skin’s supportive structures. It stimulates and promotes collagen production, increasing the rate of the skins cell renewal process. Various colours of LED lights are used to treat different skin concerns and can lead to benefits such as softening fine lines, improve skin tone, reduced inflammation and redness.  

Both our RATIONALE PhotoGenic Facial™ and RATIONALE EpiNova Photosonic Facial™ incorporate LED light-therapy into their treatments. The RATIONALE PhotoGenic Facial™ is perfect for creating a softer complexion and the RATIONALE EpiNova Photosonic Facial™ is ideal if you’re looking to target environmental damage, pigmentation and congestion and improve skin tone and texture. 

When it comes to treating your skin, it’s important you take a holistic approach. At Artisan, we’re focused on treating on the cause, not just the symptom. Our team of highly qualified doctors, nurses and dermal clinicians understand skin inside and out and they’ll work with you to assess, analyse and implement a treatment plan that will leave your skin glowing.
