Here at Charleston Aesthetics our facials do not follow a certain protocol. Your face is as individual as you are. Charleston Aesthetics Customizes you’re facial to meet your individual skin care needs.
We perform our facials based on a medical skin care assessment and on each person’s goal of achievement.
Whether it be antiaging, acne, dryness, rosacea, lack of collagen, lack of elasticity, congested skin, hyperpigmentation or a combination of any of the above we provide cosmetic facials or medical grade facials depending on the aggressiveness of the outcome our patients wish to achieve.
Although we are listing a few of our facials, we always perform a skin care treatment that is tailored to take care of your individual need.
This facial is a basic facial. It is more like getting to know your skin and what your skin needs are. Our aesthetician will cleanse and assess your skin type and condition of your skin, using a magnification lamp.
An exfoliating procedure will be done to remove dead skin cells, whether it be mechanical or chemical. The removal of blackheads or whiteheads will be done at this time if you permit.
A light facial effleurage will be performed to relax you and stimulate your skin and facial muscles. Then a mask will be chosen to target your skin type and or condition.
The final application of a skin specific serum and/or moisturizer and sunscreen if it is day time will be applied.
The last step is the advice from your professional aesthetician on how to maintain your skin and/or what procedures are available to you to correct any skin imperfections.
