Are Facial Treatments Good for Your Skin?

First of all, we’ll start with a question many people wish to know: are facial treatments actually good for your skin? Even if you don’t suffer from hyperpigmentation or acne, your skin can benefit from being pampered through a facial treatment that can keep it healthy, glowing and free from future issues. In addition, receiving a facial treatment from a professional will help you to gain a deeper understanding of your skin.
Plus, who can deny the de-stressing and relaxing side-effects that come from getting a facial treatment?

Facial Treatments ARE Beneficial, Even for Those Without a Skin Complaint

Facials will cleanse your skin from pollutants, which will help to rejuvenate it and improve its texture and tone. Also, these treatments increase the blood flow to the face, which translates to healthier cells; after all, improved blood circulation means more oxygen and nutrients!

Different Types of Facial Treatments

There are many different types of facial treatments available, so it can be daunting to choose the right one for you. Some of the most common skin procedures you can undergo include:


This type of facial is ideal for anyone looking to remove age spots and light acne scarring.

Microdermabrasion buffs away the top layers of your skin, which results in the reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, age spots, blackheads and enlarged pores, just to mention a few of its benefits. A handheld instrument sprays small crystals on your complexion, which then exfoliates your skin when suction is used to vacuum the exfoliated dead cells. Your skin may be a little red and irritated after the treatment but, ultimately, you’ll benefit from refreshed, youthful and glowing skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

A laser skin resurfacing procedure removes the outer layers of the skin and stimulates the production of collagen, as well as the production of new cells. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face and neck.

Chemical Peels

These types of facials are typically used as anti-ageing treatments to rejuvenate the complexion. This is done by correcting skin texture irregularities and to even the skin tone. The chemical peels come in varying degrees of strength and use different types of acid in their chemical solution.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

This wrinkle removal treatment uses infrared light to tighten the skin. This eliminates the need for surgery, which means no anaesthesia and no downtime. Laser skin rejuvenation targets the layers beneath the skin’s surface with heat, which stimulates the production of collagen and tightens the skin.

What Are the Best Facial Treatments? (and Their Benefits)

At The Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer a wide range of facial treatments that are perfect for many different patients. This means you will receive the best treatment for your skin.

We advise that you discuss your needs with a professional, who will then help you to make the right decision – this is because certain facials are best suited for some types of skin instead of others, which means you may not get the result you’re looking for if you select the ‘wrong’ treatment.

Take a look at what our facial treatments can do for you:

ENVY Facial

This procedure is a non-invasive, 3-in-1 dermatological treatment that extracts and infuses the skin with specialised serums, offering long-lasting results and no downtime. With an ENVY Facial procedure, your complexion becomes plumper, with more volume and more hydration. The tone and texture of your skin are also optimised and evened.

This treatment is perfect for all skin types.


An extremely popular treatment with a cult celebrity following, our HydraFacial procedure leaves your complexion brighter and refreshed, with unclogged pores and a healthy glow you’ll fall in love with.

This treatment also removes dead skin and dirt, which further adds to the youthful appearance of your skin. The HydraFacial is the only procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, antioxidant protection and red LED light therapy all in one.

This medical-grade facial includes not only deep cleansing and pore extraction, but also lymphatic drainage massage techniques that will purify your skin.

Fraxel Skin Resurfacing

This treatment refers to a non-invasive, fractional laser which treats different portions of the skin at a time. With Fraxel Skin Resurfacing, downtime is reduced, which means you don’t have to worry about getting the procedure done weeks ahead of time.

The treatment works by causing controlled micro-injuries to the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process and causes these areas to produce collagen. With Fraxel, you can see a reduction in fine lines and enlarged pores, as well as the improvement of pigmentation issues, scarring, laxity and even melasma. You’ll benefit from rejuvenated luminous skin after this procedure.

IPL Photo Rejuvenation

Looking for a youthful and fresh glow in your skin? This non-invasive facial treatment is just what you’re seeking. IPL Photo Rejuvenation, or Intense Pulsed Light therapy, treats skin damage without disrupting the surface; there is minimal downtime.

The procedure works by allowing light waves to target coloured particles like haemoglobin in broken capillaries and melanin in sunspots and freckles. The result is the improvement of sun-damaged complexion, as well as a reduction of hyperpigmentation. Your skin will also produce more collagen and elastin, which means your complexion will become more even, firmer and smoother.

iS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing

Pioneered in Beverly Hills, iS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing Treatment requires zero downtime and is used to safely and rapidly resurface the skin, reduce fine lines, address problems in your complexion and encourage cell renewal. It’s a multi-step procedure with two professional masques combined with clinical products for better results.
Celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Halle Berry, Jessica Alba and Michelle Keegan swear by this facial treatment, which is designed to guarantee the most efficient results possible. The masques use ingredients like glycolic acid, vitamin A, hyaluronic c acid, antioxidants, aloe vera and niacinamide, all of which are powerful components that rejuvenate the skin and leave it glowing and feeling invigorated.
