When it comes to who should get a deep cleansing facial, the answer is YOU, and everyone you know – man or woman, young or old. A great daily skincare routine is vital to maintaining healthy, fresh-looking skin, but turning the reigns over to a professional and getting a facial treatment should also be a staple of your skincare routine. Skincare professionals recommend having a deep cleansing facial at least once a month or every 4-6 weeks.
But why get a deep cleansing facial? And why should you go for them so regularly?
A deep cleansing facial or DCF is the most common treatment performed by estheticians. It’s a great way for your provider to gain a good understanding of your skin before recommending more or different treatments (if needed). A deep cleansing facial includes:
Deep cleansing facials are a multi-step skin treatment that can include exfoliation, face masks, cleansing, a facial massage, steam, and a variety of creams and lotions. There are a variety of facials that are chosen depending on your specific skin issues and skin type. Some are good for skin-firming, others are great for removing dead skin and revealing a fresh layer, and still others focus on solving a particular skin condition or treating problem areas. Your esthetician will recommend a DCF frequency based on your skin analysis. While it’s standard to recommend a facial every 4-6 weeks, your esthetician may recommend a different schedule based on your individual skin needs or concerns.
In many cases, multiple treatments are needed to accomplish the desired skin care goals. Generally, a series of deep cleaning facials, as well as a daily skincare regimen designed for your skin type, is recommended for producing ideal results.
Here are five reasons you should be getting a deep cleansing facial regularly.
Almost any skin type or skin condition can receive (and benefit) from a deep cleansing facial. Everyone – no matter their skin – can benefit from expert exfoliation of dead skin cell debris plus blackhead and whitehead extraction. But wait! There’s more…
A DCF is a great way to let a professional work their skin rejuvenation magic. During a facial, the exfoliation, extraction, steam, and mask application help refresh and renew the skin on a level you just can’t achieve at home. The result is a healthy, radiant glow that will stand out in the long run as your skin is consistently cared for and restored.
Just as the name indicates, a deep cleaning facial provides DEEP cleaning. This cleansing helps rid the skin of unwanted buildup of oil, toxins, dirt, bacteria, and all skin cell debris – all of which contribute to unwanted skin conditions like acne and premature aging.
Self-care cannot be undervalued in the high-stress environment we live in. It’s important to find ways to relieve stress and what better way than some spa time? The massage that comes with a DCF and the peaceful, relaxed environment at Dermacare of Hampton Roads fit the bill. And just think, you have a reason to treat yourself monthly because facials should be a reoccurring event in your skincare routine.

Facial treatments can prevent visible signs of aging and increase skin health. They hydrate the skin and increase blood circulation. They also improve your skin’s absorption abilities, which means the products you use to keep your skin young and healthy will be better absorbed following a facial.
