Updated on October 8, 2017

Different Types of Facials Produce Beautiful Skin

Facials are an excellent way to give the skin the deep cleaning it needs from time to time. It is also a great way to keep the skin glowing and the oils well balanced.

Facials help to get rid of dead skin cells on the top of the skin surface, which can cause the skin to look dull and lifeless. A good facial also helps to promote healthy skin below the surface. Continue reading to find out more about the different types of facials that people can have done professionally by licensed estheticians.

Different Types of Facials

Whenever a person goes into a beauty salon to have a facial, they are usually given a questionnaire, which asks a variety of questions. This is so that the esthetician can determine which treatments will work best for the client based on their skin type.

Most professional facials usually always start with cleansing the skin with a certain type of cream cleanser, followed with a warm wet rag to rinse the cleanser. The warm water helps to open up the skin pores and prepare the skin for the type of facial the client will be receiving.

There is a variety of facials, for a multitude of skin conditions. Below is a list of common facials performed by estheticians.


According to “What is a Facial, “written by Anita Brown, extractions are a procedure that can be quite painful. The esthetician uses tools that get underneath several layers of the skin and pull out the dirt and oils that can cause blackheads. It is very important to make sure the esthetician knows exactly how to perform extractions. If a licensed professional does not perform this procedure, it can leave skin looking bruised and discolored.

Acne Facials or Deep Cleansing Facials-

Are usually performed at Medi-spas, which are spas that do both cosmetic and esthetic procedures. One of the treatments that tend to work well for people with acne is the chemical peel, also known as glycolic acid. They are generally recommended for people who have moderate to severe acne. Acne facials often help to deep cleanse skin pores and help fade and diminish acne scars from past breakouts.

Hyperpigmentation Facial-

According to “Management of facial hyperpigmentation,” written by Bernal, Perez, and Camacho, accessed from the U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, the hyperpigmentation facial is a facial that is performed on people who have various types of skin discoloration.

Whether it’s freckles, sunspots, or birthmarks, the successful treatments to help fade these skin imperfections is a treatment containing tretinoin. Other treatments that are beneficial in treating hyperpigmentation are kojic acid in combination with glycolic acid as well as hydroquinone. After a hyperpigmentation, facial people often tend to experience a slight tingling sensation where the treatment was applied; therefore receiving these treatments on a regular basis is not advised.

Anti-Aging Facial-

An anti-aging facial is generally geared towards women in their late 20’s and beyond. According to the InSpa website, an anti-aging facial helps “firms skin and stimulates elastin and collagen. Rejuvenates and protects against premature aging.” After this procedure is performed people notice a vast difference in the overall quality and texture of their skin. By having anti-aging facials performed on a regular basis, people can help impede the development of fine lines and wrinkles on a long-term basis.

These are a list of common facial treatments for people with differing skin problems and different stages in their life. People can ask their esthetician to create or revamp their own individual facial treatment to suit their needs. Each one of these facials can help give consumers the clean, healthy glowing skin they have always desired. Lastly, consumers should always be sure to have these facial procedures performed by a licensed esthetician.
