Why should you be getting monthly facials?

By now we should all be aware how much eating well (look up Super Foods), getting enough sleep and using sunscreen helps us to age well. But here’s some information on the long-term benefits of regular – monthly professional skin care by a trained, licensed Aesthetician. Think of it as routine maintenance and working out – every once in a while just doesn’t provide long-term effects. Your skin will be softer, smoother with fewer breakouts – less wrinkles, tighter/firmer. Who doesn’t like the sound of that! Here are the top 4 reasons to get started on a professional skin care routine:

1) It doesn’t cost as much as you might think

Getting monthly facials doesn’t have to break the bank. Spa 131 offers a VIP Membership program that is VERY appealing to most pocketbooks. We even offer quickie “lunch-time” services that are basic and right-to-the-point without the extras of massage or any other “spa-ish” services. Remember that no face is the same, so different skin types have different needs. Your Spa 131 Aesthetician will provide a detailed consultation at your first visit and help design a skincare plan just for you.

2) Professional Extractions – not just a “Zit Pop.”

Blackheads! Whiteheads! Zits! Gross! “Popping” your zits is something that you should never on on your own . . . no matter how much you are tempted to! Why? Spreading bacteria and even sending it deeper into your pore, bruising, and even hyperpigmentation are some of the dangers, and those at-home treatments are never up to the challenge. Those pore-cleansing strips, YouTube vids, and over-the-counter cleansers don’t do what you really need them to do, except for strip you skin and dry you like the desert. Trained Aestheticians know how to provide extractions to help get rid of a blackhead once and for all. Spa 131 provides gentles extraction services with professional tools after using a delicious botanical enzyme peel and warm, enveloping steamy towels. Discomfort? Yes, sometimes. Worth it? Indeed! With professional extraction methods the redness is reduced, but you still might be a little puffy for a while. It’s best to schedule a facial about a week before any big event but (!) your skin will be brighter, smoother, clearer and softer pretty much right away! Also (and this is a big deal!) once you start regular skincare, there will be less to extract.

3) Professional tools equal professional results!

No amount of scrub is going to equal the power and results of a microdermabrasion or chemical peel! Spa 131 offers diamond-tip microdermabrasion which involves a gentle sloughing to scrub away the outer layers of skin and even may be gentle enough for most skin types. The wand then vacuums away the abraided skin leaving behind glowing skin you didn’t think you could see again. Spa 131 offers Professional grade peels which are very closely closely monitored go deeper. Trust me! These can’t be done at home no matter what YouTube tells you! We have a big selections of Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acids, and plant-based peels that are not available without a professional license. Here at Spa 131, a customized treatment plan is designed just for your skin type. Another tool we offer is REZENERATE, which is a delivery system that pushes specific products deep into your epidermis. Going through a series of Rezenerate treatments shows amazing and long-term results. Finally, LED light therapy is scientifically proven to help slow down the aging progression in your skin – first studied by NASA – you can’t get too much for scientific than that!

4) Aestheticians are skin care EXPERTS!

Skin care isn’t a hobby or side-job – it is a profession for Aestheticians. We have studied, trained and then tested to become licensed to practice – and frequently continue to learn by taking advanced classes. Once you find an Aesthetician that you like and trust, stay loyal. He/She will get you know you and your skin, making more effective skincare results over the course of time. You’ll feel much more comfortable talking about problems that arise. We will recommend professional products and treatment to continue with your home care. It’s guaranteed that people will notice your healthier skin – even if they don’t speak up. We like for you to take out your cellphone and snap a beginning pic so your progress will be documented by you and will become quite evident. You can’t argue with that!

5)  “You’re HOW old?”

Spa 131 is proud to offer Age Management Holistic Fitness for your face.  Utilizing a combination of several modalities, this Holistic “facelift” is extremely effective in controlling and even “erasing” the signs of aging – even showing results with your very first treatment.  You’ll be asked to snap a picture with your own phone before and after your service so that you can see for yourself the benefits.  No smoke and mirrors.  True and effective Age Management.  This service involves manipulating the skin, fascia, lymph, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and bones of the face, scalp, posterior, lateral and anterior neck and shoulders.  This is coupled with Traditional Western Massage techniques with Eastern modalities to create a very therapeutic and advanced facial without the use of needles or machines.  These techniques vacillate between being structured and unstructured, stationary and moving, speed and depth, warm and cold, pinning and stretching moving across the muscle fibers to shorten and lock (cross fiber) and with the muscle fibers to lengthen (linear).  Your Therapist will use vibration, pincement, squeezing, lifting and pulling, rolling and pressure, rolling and lifting, rhythm and acupressure, and gliding techniques.  Cupping and Gha Sha tools are incorporated, along with ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response)Touch Therapy to start your service with profound relaxation.
