The General Conscientious

Many skin care professionals will recommend you schedule a facial every three to four weeks; however, it truly depends on your skin, your age and the environment in which you live. Why? Your skin needs to fully heal between sessions, and in order to do that, your skin’s full life cycle needs to be taken into consideration. Skin cell growth and exfoliation are crucial. You don’t want to schedule another facial too early; you want to schedule it so that you are getting a facial once your skin has completed its full life cycle. Doing so will help keep your skin maintain a beautiful glow all year round. It should look clear, clean, toned and smooth.

Acne Prone Individuals and Hydrafacials

Individuals who experience oilier skin or frequent breakouts are highly recommended to schedule hydrafacials more frequently; we even recommend scheduling a facial during a breakout to prevent even more acne from developing. Every two to three weeks is appropriate for most who deal with frequent breakouts. Doing so can help to keep your skin clear and in a healthier place. As the skin heals , the period of time between each hydrafacial appointment may end up becoming further and further apart.

Infrequent Hydrafacials

We get it; although you may want to get facials once a month, sometimes life gets in the way. Whether you can’t afford it or your budget gets in the way, being able to get a hydrafacial as frequently as you’d like can become too difficult. If you’re someone who can only afford hydrafacials two times a year or so, aim to come in between the two harshest skin seasons: At the end of winter and the end of summer. This way, your skin can hit the refresh button just in time for the sun or just in time for the clouds; either way, your skin will feel much better getting some attention rather than none at all.

Frequent Hydrafacials

As amazing as a weekly facial seems, it can be possible to experience negative affects if you schedule facials too close together. Our skin care professionals will recommend to you the amount of time between hydrafacials needed to fully heal and become ready.
