How Often Should I Get a Facial?

Great news! Aestheticians Shani Darden and Joanna Vargas, and New York City-based dermatologist Ellen Marmur, all agree that the magic number of times you should have a facial is — drumroll, please — once per month.

“I always recommend [that] clients have facials once a month, [because] nothing you do at home can replace professional attention,” Vargas says. “Also, your skin is doing different things depending on the season and depending on your lifestyle, [so] having a monthly check-in with a professional ensures you are getting the best treatment.”

Once per month is also the ideal time frame because our skin cell turnover cycle is 28 days long, explains Marmur. So getting a professional facial more than once a month could be irritating to the skin. There are exceptions to that rule, though, so it’s always best to follow the protocol recommended by your dermatologist. (Source)

Terramé is pleased to offer the HydraFacial™ to Huntsville, Alabama. The HydraFacial is a “medical-grade hydradermabrasion device that carries out a patented three-part regimen — cleansing, exfoliating, and then infusing skin with intensive serums,” explains Sameer Bashey, a clinical instructor in dermatology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

Back up: Hydradermabrasion? Yep. Rather than blasting the skin with grit, à la traditional dermabrasion, this gentler approach vacuums out pores while simultaneously pushing in potent actives, which moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect. The machine’s handpiece holds patented spiralized treatment tips equipped with “vortex technology” — the whirling force that both giveth and taketh away. (Source)
