For all the work it does to protect us, skin is as ever-changing as it is tough. While it works hard to cover our most vital and intricate organs, skin is also susceptible to change as interior and exterior factors create scenarios in which it becomes prone to blemishes, scarring, diminished tone and brightness or even the development of wrinkles and fine lines. While these types of results can be expected over time, it doesn’t mean they have to be long-lasting. Many individuals who suffer from less-than-perfect complexions live with the feeling that the exterior doesn’t match the vibrant interior. When it’s time to take a look at solutions for clearing up, brightening up and smoothing skin, particularly on the face, a custom facial rejuvenation treatment may be the key.
A customized facial is a personalized treatment that is designed to target skincare needs that are specific to the individual being treated. A customized facial is not a one-stop solution to clearing up skin blemishes but rather a comprehensive look at a patient’s skin type, needs, and strategies that will produce the best results in combination. A customized facial often includes a select number of serums, vitamins, antioxidants, retinol and stem cells that are applied in a specific order in order to maximize skin’s renewal process. While a customized facial is a wonderful place to start when looking to improve facial skin quality, many patients will elect to combine this treatment with a more robust plan of action that could include everything from Dermapen treatments to a chemical peel or microdermabrasion.
Custom facials have grown in popularity amongst patients not only for the highly-successful results they yield but for the time-efficient approach this type of treatment takes as well. Most patients can expect to spend no more than 60 minutes receiving treatment which can be done from the comfort of the attending esthetician’s office. A quality custom facial rejuvenation treatment always begins with a custom evaluation. It’s essential that a patient receive a thorough skin analysis prior to receiving treatment in order to ensure that his or her facial provides the optimum results in relationship to skin type and needs. Skin damage photos are regularly a part of this skin analysis process and provide the attending esthetician with a closer look at just how rigorous of a facial is required to move beyond damaged cells and begin rejuvenating healthy skin cells below the surface. Once photos and a full analysis are complete, a custom facial can be initiated.
Similar to nearly all cosmetic procedures, the cost associated with a custom facial will vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of the skin being treated and how many sessions are required to achieve the desired results. On average, patients who elect to undergo a custom facial spend approximately $125 for a 60-minute session. Sessions that include specialized services that range from oxygen-infusions, peptides and stem cell applications may see that cost increase to $130 for an hour-long treatment. The team at the St. Louis Laser Lipo and Vein Center is here to help walk patients through the many payment and financing options available through our clinic.
While custom facials are often combined with other cosmetic procedures, this type of treatment is renowned for its successful results and highly-safe process. As an outpatient treatment option, custom facials allow patients to enjoy a skin rejuvenation technique that comes without any of the risks associated with a general anesthetic, a lengthy hospital stay or long recovery period. The majority of patients see immediate results following their session and at most, report experiencing redness, mild pain or slight swelling. Most of these symptoms are relieved with the application of lotions and oils but can also easily be treated with over the counter pain medications.
