Fabulous Facials for a Physical & Psychological Glow Up!
Facials have a host of benefits – both physical and psychological – with immediate and long-term results.
Facials can make skin softer and smoother, reduce or prevent breakouts, minimize signs of sun damage and aging, and decrease redness and irritation. Facials are also a wonderful way to relax and pamper yourself – letting you take time out of your busy schedule for some much-needed self-care.
Whether you’re considering your first facial – or you’re a regular facial fanatic – here are frequently asked fast facts about customized facials at AMAE Med Spa in the Troy, MI area.
What skin issues can a facial treat?
In addition to improving skin texture, smoothness and “glow”, customized facials at AMAE in the Troy, MI area can treat:
Acne: Facials can clear pores, reduce oil, decrease breakouts, and the get rid of blackheads, inflammation, and pus-filled pimples.
Dry skin: Facials can hydrate skin, reducing lines and plumping skin, by delivering lasting moisturizing benefits.
Signs of Aging: By exfoliating, smoothing, nourishing, and hydrating the skin, facials reduce the appearance of common signs of aging, including fine lines, sagging, loss of tone, and wrinkles.
Tired & dull skin: Facials are designed to improve skin circulation and promote cellular regeneration. This can reduce the appearance of dark undereye circles, improve overall complexion health, and impart a youthful glow to the face.
Sun-damage: Facials exfoliate the top, dead, dry or damaged layer of skins – revealing fresh, undamaged skin cells beneath. This can reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dryness and other signs of aging that are associated with sun exposure.
Do facials cause redness or “break outs” afterwards?
Absolutely not. The clinical grade facials at Troy., Mi area AMAE Med Spa are not irritating or ‘clogging’ to the skin and should not cause redness or surface breakouts.
It is true that some “drug store” and DIY facials can be irritating and even damage skin. But customized, medical grade facials at AMAE in the Troy, MI area actually facilitate the healing process and reduce or eliminate redness, breakouts and other skin reactions.
What facial products are used at AMAE Med Spa?
Every facial is customized formulated for each patient’s unique individual skin type and skin care needs. Many of our facials incorporate professional ZO Skin Therapy to gently remove dead skin cells without harming sensitive or irritated tissues.
We also combine medical grade products and serums with extractions as needed, so that the skin is left soothed, nourished, refreshed, and bacteria free.
Can I get a facial before an important event?
Absolutely! A customized facial is sure to make skin look younger, healthier, refreshed and glowing before any important occasion. And since there is no downtime after our clinical grade facials, the skin will look healthy and glowing directly after your treatment – so you are immediately “red carpet ready”.
Can I wear makeup before or after my facial appointment?
Yes! A deep cleansing is always performed as the first step of a facial. This will remove any makeup, dirt, oil, dead cells, or debris from the skin – even deep in the pores.
After your facial you may apply foundation or makeup normal, since the facial is “non-ablative” and does not irritate, inflame, or “ablate” the skin. But for best results, patients should be sure to remove makeup at the end of the day.
Can patients with sensitive skin get facials?
Yes. There are many causes of sensitive skin – from rosacea, to hormones, eczema, allergic reactions, dermatitis and more.
The skilled aestheticians and nurses at AMAE in the Troy, MI area will evaluate and your unique skin sensitivities before formulating your customized facial. Medical grade ingredients – including anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and skin nutrients – can actually improve skin sensitivity and prevent many skin conditions from worsening.
Can pregnant women get facials?
Facials during pregnancy are actually recommended for many reasons. The hormonal changes of pregnancy can wreak havoc on the skin – and on the emotions. While many other skincare treatments (lasers, RF, etc.) are off-limits during pregnancy, regular facials can help alleviate breakout, increased redness, and sensitivity. Facials can also be a fantastic relaxation tool during the stress and discomfort of carrying a child.
