The Benefits of Adding Facials to Your Skincare Routine

By: Dr. Linda I. Sodoma


Having a dedicated at-home skincare routine is essential for keeping your complexion looking its best, but adding regular, medical-grade facials into the mix can give your skin's health and vibrance an even greater boost. At Life Care for Women, Dr. Linda I. Sodoma and our dedicated aesthetic team offer a complete range of customizable, professional facial treatments in Gilbert, AZ designed to help patients maintain a smoother, healthier, clearer complexion and keep unwanted skin irregularities and symptoms at bay. Discover the many ways in-office facials can improve your skin here.

Are professional facials better than at-home face masks?

While there are certainly a number of skincare products, skin masks, and other at-home solutions that can be beneficial for your complexion, professional facials typically include medical-grade products and more advanced techniques that allow them to make improvements to the health and appearance of the skin that may not be possible with DIY skincare alone.

Why should I get professional facials?

It is important to keep in mind that periodic medical facials do not serve as a substitute for a dedicated at-home skincare routine, but they can certainly complement your regular regimen. Some of the most compelling benefits of adding in-office facials to your skincare plan include:

  • Can be customized to meet your specific needs and goals
  • Can boost the effects of your regular skincare products and treatments
  • Can address hidden skin damage and deeper issues that at-home products do not target
  • Can keep your skin looking healthier and more radiant

In addition to considering facials as an addition to your regular skincare routine, you may also benefit by exploring microneedling, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, and other professional skin rejuvenation options for an even more complete and thorough skincare regimen.

What issues can be treated with a professional facial?

Because each facial can be fully personalized based on the patient's unique skin type and specific set of concerns, our team can address almost any skin irregularity you may be struggling with. Common skin concerns that may be improved or even corrected with regular, in-office facial treatments include:

  • Acne
  • Clogged pores
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rosacea and redness
  • Sun damage
  • Hidden skin damage
  • Dry skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Dull skin

How often should I get a professional facial?

The appropriate frequency for professional facials will depend on several factors, such as the patient's skin type, the type and strength of the facial being performed, and others. Following a comprehensive consultation and skin assessment, one of our knowledgeable providers will recommend a facial schedule that is best suited for your unique complexion, and this can be adjusted based on your response to treatment and changes in your skin over time. Generally speaking, patients often benefit from monthly facials when combined with proper skincare at home.
