When it comes to facials in Nashua, NH, our team at Aidan James is busy! With the changing of seasons, many are experiencing dry, itchy skin. Although it’s recommended you have a facial at least once a month to maintain the optimal glow, these cold New England seasons warrant a little extra TLC!

However, one of the most frequently asked questions is how long the facial results will last. While there is no guaranteed science, the immediate healthy glow should remain for at least 5 days. While that doesn’t seem very long, there are several steps you can take at home to extend the life of your facial.

In this article, we’re looking at a few reasons why you want to schedule a facial today and how to get the most from your treatment.


Common reasons for facials in Nashua, NH

Let us start by discussing why you need a facial. Below are a few of the common issues that bring the young and old, women and men to visit our team:

  • Acne
  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Sagging skin
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Dull and lifeless color

Beyond the physical aspects of a facial, people also enjoy treatments before an event. Sure, this goes back to the physical aspect but receiving a treatment before a wedding, for example, will ensure your skin is looking fabulous for the big day.


How often should you receive treatments?

As mentioned, we always recommend at least a monthly treatment to keep your skin looking fabulous. However, depending on your situation, your esthetician may suggest an alternative plan. It takes the skin between three and four weeks to cycle, treatments will help keep your skin refreshed, clear, and toned.

However, if you tend to be on the oily side, you may need more frequent visits to achieve the desired results. Likewise, correction facials also require a case by case assessment. In general, the immediate glow should last at least one week, but this changes with each individual.


Things you should be doing at home

We can bring your skin back to life, but what you do at home is just as important. For starters, you want to be washing with a cleaner meant for your skin type and targeted concern. Beyond the correct cleanser, toner and moisturizer are equally important.

Further steps include:

  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Applying sunscreen when heading outdoors (even in the winter)
  • Skip the makeup for a few days
  • Leave those breakouts alone
  • Stay away from exfoliators, scrubs, and treatment products for a few days
