Facials Demystified

As women, we often are on a long journey to improve our health through nutrition, exercise, lifestyle changes and stress reduction.  At Serenity Medical Aesthetics in the Women’s Wellness Center of Boca Raton, we emphasize the importance of teaching women to care for themselves from the perspective of whole body health.

Our skin is the largest organ in our body and often reflects how we are feeling and what we are eating. Facials and holistic skincare should be an integral part of everyone’s healthy lifestyle plan. Facials have many benefits, some of which are obvious and others that might surprise you. Getting a facial professionally cleans the skin and removes dirt and toxins caused by pollution and our daily environment. In addition, dead skin cells and an overabundance of sebum are removed revealing the new skin cells that are continuously being made.

You may be surprised to learn that facials improve the circulation to your skin.  By increasing blood flow to your skin through the facial massage, oxygen and nutrients found in your blood are more able to nourish the new skin cells.  This plumps up the skin cells and enables better absorption of quality skin care products and results in the skin exhibiting a healthy glow.  The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are reduced, the skin is more hydrated and the overall result is a more youthful, relaxed and healthy appearance.

Stress can be a big factor in weight issues, hormone imbalances, and overall health. Facials are one of the many stress reduction techniques that can be used to combat the stress found in everyone’s lives. When you book a facial you are giving yourself an hour of pure uninterrupted pampering. Facial treatments feel good, relieve stress, decrease stress hormones and encourage peace of mind and contentment. A facial is performed in a relaxing environment, with soothing music, incorporating aromatherapy and allows you to escape from your busy world and unwind.

Facials are an important part of the mind, body and spirit connection. Having a healthy radiant skin will help a person feel calmer and more confident.  All of these benefits can last well beyond the day of your facial. Healthy happy skin makes healthy happy ladies. When you look your best, you feel your best. We have a wide variety of facials to meet your skincare needs.

All the best,

Dr. Gail
