Facial Q & A

Fresh Start Aesthetics Med Spa

Why get a professional facial instead of doing it at home?

At-home, do-it-yourself facials can be relaxing and soothe your skin. However, Mari has an extensive knowledge of skin care as well as access to a wider range of products that you can buy at a department store. She’ll be able to recommend a facial that’s perfect for your needs and select the right products from her proprietary, medical-grade Fresh Start Aesthetics luxury skin care line.

Examples of specialized facials available at Fresh Start Aesthetics Med Spa include:

  • Stem cell rejuvenation for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation
  • Platelet-rich plasma, which uses the healing capabilities of your own blood plasma to rejuvenate the skin
  • Oxygen-infused facial, which hydrates the skin and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Fresh Start signature facial treatment
  • Anti-aging and wrinkle reducing treatment
  • Men's deep cleansing and hydrating facial

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is an anti-aging treatment that involves gently sanding the skin to remove dead, dry skin cells from the skin’s superficial outer layer. Microdermabrasion treatments usually take between 15 minutes and an hour and require no downtime. However, your skin may appear red for a few hours afterward, and you’ll want to avoid the sun since your skin will be sensitive.

Over time, microdermabrasion helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars clogged pores, and age spots, contributing to smoother, healthier-looking skin. From the first treatment, you’ll notice brighter, younger-looking skin.

As with facials, it’s possible to perform a microdermabrasion on yourself at home, but you’ll see better results by going to Fresh Start Aesthetics Med Spa because medical-grade tools go deeper and are most effective in trained hands.

How often can I get facials and microdermabrasions?

Facials are a form of maintenance for your skin, so to experience their full benefits, they should be part of your routine. You can go in every three or five weeks, depending on whether your skin is dry, oily, sensitive or somewhere in between. Mari will advise you on the ideal schedule for receiving facials treatments and help you come up with a beauty maintenance plan for between treatments.

It’s safe to receive microdermabrasions every 10 days indefinitely. Depending on your skin conditions and the results you desire, the overall number of treatments will vary. To maintain and boost the effects of microdermabrasion, Mari will recommend the best available cleansers and moisturizers, including from her proprietary Fresh Start Aesthetics skin care line and from Regenica, one of the leading brands of skin rejuvenation products.
