What Is A Custom Facial?

A custom facial comprises a specialized series of individualized, results-oriented facial treatments tailored to the patient. Each of our customized facial treatments addresses and targets specific skincare concerns, such as visible signs of aging and premature skin aging, dehydrated skin, rosacea, reactive or sensitive skin, oily skin, congested skin, skin with acne, and other skin issues. 

These tailored treatments can accommodate individuals of any skin type, which may include a deep cleansing or double cleansing, chemical or manual exfoliation treatments, and additional innovative treatments, such as SkinPen® Microneedling, DiamondGlow™ with SkinMedica®, LED light therapy, oxygen therapy, and laser facial procedures, such as with Fraxel® and VBeam® laser treatments.

Customized Skin Care

Complementary to custom facials, we offer patients personalized skin care products and individualized treatments designed to facilitate optimal results from your customized facial. During your appointment, our skin care specialist will ask you questions about your current skin care routine, any skin problems or skin conditions, and other questions regarding your unique skin. Thereafter, we will design a treatment program tailored to meet your specific needs and aesthetic skin goals. We carry the highest-quality skin care products and lines from EltaMD, Latisse®, Obagi®, Revision Skincare®, St. Tropez, ALASTIN Skincare, and more.

Benefits Of Customized Facials

Custom facial treatments from Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center provide your skin with the individualized, professional treatment it deserves. Regular facials can help alleviate some of your skin’s undesirable traits by removing dead skin cells and pollutants, balancing natural skin oils, targeted facial resurfacing, collagen-stimulating therapies, and beneficial circulatory practices. For most individuals, the cell-turnover process takes approximately a month, so it’s best to return for monthly sessions to maintain optimal results. The following comprises some of the benefits of customized facials.

Your Skin Care Experience

During your initial consultation with our skin care specialists, you will be asked to complete forms about your health, skin conditions, treatment goals, and other details unique to you. Getting to know your skin is a critical step in the process. You will discuss any specific skin concerns you want to address or focus on during this appointment and any other important factors regarding your skin’s health and care.

Your skin specialist will then review the steps of your skin care session and specific product and treatment options with you. Your custom facial experience may include a professional double cleanse, skin steaming, personalized skin analysis, manual or chemical resurfacing skin treatments, a facial massage, specialized skin serums and masks, and finishing treatment. The duration of your custom facial will depend on your selected treatment plan.

Double Cleanse & Steam

Your skin specialist will perform a thorough double cleanse of the face, chest, and décolleté. Our double cleanse and steam removes makeup, dirt, and other debris from the skin’s surfaces. Cleansing with warm steam helps prepare the skin for the next facial steps. Once the skin is sufficiently cleansed, a detailed skin analysis is then performed using a magnifying light. This will help our specialists to confirm the chosen treatment steps are ideal for your skin’s needs. Adjustments to your plan can be made at this time, depending on the results.

Resurfacing Treatment

Each custom facial provides a different degree of exfoliation, depending on what each patient’s skin requires. Exfoliation plays a key role in assisting the skin with maintaining optimal health and achieving a youthful, lasting glow. Your skin-specific resurfacing treatment may include glycolic acid peels, lactic acid peels, salicylic acid peels, VI Peel®, or a TCA peel, depending on your needs. A second exfoliation may be performed to provide a more thorough and longer-lasting result. If required, we may perform gentle facial extractions to remove any build-up and debris from your pores. 

Facial Massage

A facial massage offers a host of benefits for skin and body health, as well as collagen production and skin firmness. This treatment allows the patient to relax and enjoy a stimulating facial massage, which encourages lymphatic drainage, relieves muscle tension, and rejuvenates the skin for a natural glow. During this step of the custom facial, our skin specialist stimulates pressure points in the treatment area to promote healthy skin while relaxing your facial muscles. It has a rejuvenating effect, which helps you to both look and feel better.

Custom Skin Treatments

Treatments using a customized facial mask, a series of facial masks, and targeted skin serums and products help to address specific skin concerns, allowing the skin to appear soothed, brighter, and more balanced. Depending on your skin care needs and concerns, we will choose an optimal treatment or series of treatments for you. Targeted serums and customized masks are applied to further maximize the benefits of your facial treatment. These products can be left on for 10–30 minutes, depending on the product and your skin requirements, allowing you to relax while the ingredients perform at their best.

Finishing Treatment

As a final step to our customized facials, our skin specialist will provide a quenching mist, antioxidant serum, custom moisturizer, SPF, and any other products ideal for your skin to help protect your skin following treatment. Your skin will feel both refreshed and renewed! Depending on the specific techniques and product ingredients used during your procedure, you may be required to follow specific instructions regarding caring for your skin in the days following the facial. Contact us for more information.

What To Do After Your Facial

During your initial consultation, you will receive instructions regarding steps to take before and following your treatment with us, as well as your aftercare product options and skin care regimen to help prolong the benefits of your customized facial. Custom facials are overall relaxing experiences. However, occasional and minor discomfort might be associated with 

certain aspects of the treatments. Always maintain open lines of communication with your skin care professional for the highest level of comfort throughout your procedure. Contact Gainesville Dermatology Aesthetic Center today to get started!
