Have You Heard Of The Glass Facial?
This skincare treatment is one of the hottest trends – and for good reason! The HydraFacial saw viral popularity in the past few years, and now there’s a new treatment on the rise. The Glass Facial can help you achieve smooth, hydrated skin as it clarifies, refines pores, and even minimizes wrinkles and acne. Plus, it yields long-lasting results! Even though it’s gaining in popularity, this treatment isn’t actually new. It features one of the best tried and true skin-boosting procedures – microneedling.
What Is A Glass Facial?
This treatment gets its name because of the incredibly smooth, glass-like finish on the skin afterward. After a deep cleansing and exfoliation of the skin, we apply a topical numbing cream to make the microneedling more comfortable. Using an array of tiny needles, we create “microchannels” in the superficial layers of the skin. This not only stimulates collagen but allows for deeper penetration of nourishing serums, like hyaluronic acid. Working therapeutic ingredients into the skin through microchannels is what truly takes this facial treatment to the next level.
What Are The Benefits?
Some people refer to this treatment as a real-life filter because it impacts nearly every aspect of the skin:
- Deep hydration
- Refined Pores
- Improved Skin Texture
- Plumps out wrinkles and fine lines
- Stimulates collagen for longer-term results
- Reduces oil production, improves acne
Results typically appear within about 7 days, after mild redness and swelling go down. And, they can last up to 3 months! This is the perfect treatment to plan about 1 month before a special event for that pore-less airbrushed look. Many people find they make a great addition to their routine, coming in every 2-3 months for treatment. The cumulative results can be impressive, even reducing the need for things like fillers or neurotoxin injections.
