Facials

naperville facials
Facials are an excellent treatment to build and maintain more healthy skin. This pampering treatment is most often performed on the face, neck, chest, back and hands to improve the pigmentation (brown and red areas) and texture (fine lines and pores) of the skin. There is no downtime with minimal if any discomfort and risk. It is the perfect treatment for those wanting a youthful complexion while still enjoying their regular daily activities.

What does a facial treatment feel like?
Treatments are approximately 60 minutes. Your skin will be cleansed at the beginning of the treatment. Mild exfoliators and masks will remove impurities and stimulate cell turnover; while, serums, lotions and creams will restore vital skin nutrients. You will relax while the skin awakens to a lymphatic massage releasing toxins from the body. Sunblock will also be applied to protect your rejuvenated skin. You may apply makeup immediately following and go about your regular daily activities, of course avoiding excessive sun exposure.

How does the treatment work?
The skincare that is applied during your treatment will be selected based on meeting your specific skincare goals. Our products are professional physician-grade formulas with more effective active ingredients than a spa or over-the-counter line. It is important to amplify your results with daily use of a recommended skincare regimen designed by your esthetic provider. Over a series of facials and daily use of effective skincare, the skin will gradually appear brighter and firmer, reflecting more light due to its smoother surface. Treatments are generally recommended in a series of 6 sessions, performed 2-4 weeks apart for optimal results. Some clients may require more treatments.

What products do you use?
At Blue Seas Med Spa we use DermaQuest, Revision and Blue Seas Med Spa Skincare to treat the skin.

Where on the face and body can the treatments be performed?
This pampering treatment is most often performed on the face, neck, chest, back and hands to improve the pigmentation (brown and red areas) and texture (fine lines and pores) of the skin.

What is the pre-treatment care?
Please follow the recommended skincare regimen as directed by your Consultation Coordinator or Provider. Although facials can be very healing for the skin, it is most important to make sure that the treatment area is not overly exposed to the sun for 2 weeks prior to treatment to maximize clinical results. This includes tanning beds. Sun exposure will make the skin sensitive to the products that could increase risk for potential side effects. Daily use of sunblock with SPF30 or higher will assist in reducing sun exposure, but will not do enough if you are regularly outside. If your skin is tan at the time of treatment, or if you had recent exposure to the sun (ie: watching a soccer game, baseball game), your provider may delay your treatment to a later date to reduce risk of side effects.

What is the post-treatment care?
Please follow the recommended skincare regimen as directed by your Consultation Coordinator or Provider. Additionally, avoid sun exposure for two weeks following each treatment as you will be more sun sensitive and could compromise the results of the treatment.

Who are the best candidates?
The best candidates for this procedure are those with early signs of sun damage and aging skin who desire a healthier, more youthful appearance. Those candidates should also have realistic expectations and be committed to improving their skin and maintaining results under the direction of a skincare professional. Please note this procedure is not recommended for pregnant women.

Can all skin types be treated?
All skin types may be treated with these products.

What results are expected?
With a series of treatments, proper sun exposure and skin care, one should expect an overall improvement in the appearance of their skin, including a lighter more even complexion and smoother texture, with a bright, firm appearance.

When can you expect the results?
Results gradually develop with each treatment while textural improvement can occur for a few months following treatment.

After treatment, the skin will continue to age. It is important to follow a healthy skin care regimen to prevent new damage in addition to receiving additional facials to maintain results. Please consult with your Consultation Coordinator or Provider for the best effective plan for your skin care goals. We measure results based on the goals of the consultation and with clinical photography. Your Consultation Coordinator and/or Provider will assess your results throughout your treatment program. Photos of the treatment area will be taken prior to your first treatment and at the completion of the program. Additional photographs may be taken as needed. {Decide on if you want photos done for the facial treatments. Omit this if not.}

What are things to consider in choosing to have this treatment? Are there potential risks or side effects?
Facials are very relaxing, pampering and usually risk-free. Although with any new product applied to the skin, there are potential risks of sensitivity or side effects. Minimizing sun exposure before and after treatment minimizes risk of side effects. Also, please advise your Consultation Coordinator or Provider of any changes in medical history so that your Esthetician can adjust treatment if necessary. Rare side effects may include:

✔ erythema (or redness/flushing) of the skin for a few hours
✔ mild flaking
✔ allergic reaction to products
✔ infection and scars
