Facials: They're More Than Just a Spa Service

When people think about facials, it’s usually in the cosmetic sense, to refresh your skin and remove minor imperfections, and it does a good job at those things. But facials extend beyond merely a “spa service” treatment. Your skin, the largest organ in your body, serves as a barrier, holding in moisture and protecting you against the elements, pathogens, and environmental toxins.

Because it’s always exposed to the outside world, it’s easy for your facial skin to become dull, dry, and lined. A good home care regimen can protect your skin to some degree, but sometimes getting a professional facial treatment is the best choice to restore health and vitality.

At Eterna Vein & Medical Aesthetics in Puyallup, Washington, our expert team of master aestheticians customizes our many facial treatments to your individual needs.

Benefits of a professional facial

Each of our facial treatments is designed to cleanse, moisturize, and tone your skin — all important to maintaining its health and proper function. We first analyze your skin type and look at the amount and type of damage, selecting appropriate products to use. Next, we perform a deep cleansing followed by your selected facial treatment.

We perform our facials in a calm, soothing environment, which allows you to relax while we do all the work. Relaxing is important, as the stress hormone cortisol can have a damaging impact on your skin: it breaks down collagen, one of the skin’s structural proteins, and it causes redness, dryness, dullness, sagging, and increased sensitivity. It also ramps up the activity of the sebaceous glands — the skin produces more oil, leading to blocked pores and breakouts.

Benefits of our facials include:

Which facial should I choose?

We have a menu of options available to choose from, depending on the amount and type of damage you have, as well as on your aesthetic goals.

All facials are aimed at rejuvenating your skin, not only making you look better, but also allowing the skin to function at its peak. We recommend that you come in for a facial once a month, but if that’s too much, at least four times a year should keep you healthy and glowing.
