Choosing the Right Skin Treatment

By Robin Hardey

In a city as blessed with glorious amounts of sunlight as Brisbane, most people would only care about lounging outside or getting that elusive perfect tan. That’s the bright side of the sun (figuratively speaking) but a lot of people aren’t aware of how lengthy stays out under the sun could be damaging their skin. Sun damage to the skin is one of the leading issues of skin care but it’s not the only one. Most appearance and health conscious people would also seek out treatments for pore cleansing, wrinkle removing and healing acne scars. The objective remains the same: Get healthy, beautiful and glowing skin. While the right type of diet plays a vital role in achieving that objective from the inside there are a number of skin treatments you can avail in Brisbane to work from the outside.

Besides massages, facials are the most popular offering at day spas. They tend to relax you in addition to providing excellent skin care. When it comes to getting a facial in a day spa, Brisbane offers you a variety of options. Not only will you have to make a wise choice between all the different spas that offer facial treatments but you also need to clearly know what you need from your facial. The purpose of all facial treatments is to cleanse, exfoliate and nourish your skin. It’s the thoroughness of the procedure and the method used that differs. If you have specific needs or requirements from techniques or products, you need to make sure you tell the people at the Spa exactly that. You can choose between getting a simple, quick face cleanser or get a long thorough facial. Facials, also known as “deep-cleansing facials” and “deep-pore cleansing” (because of extractions), start off with a cleansing of the face using cotton pads or sponges and a product or two that is suited to your skin type. This is followed by a skin analysis that provides further information on your skin condition and how should the subsequent exfoliation and extraction be carried out. You will leave the spa feeling relaxed, refreshed and with glowing healthy-looking skin.

A more radical skin care treatment than regular facials, microdermabrasion treatments are becoming very popular these days because of their proven beneficial effects to the skin. Microdermabrasion treatments entail the partial or complete removal of the outermost skin layer through light abrasion. This results in treating sun-damaged skin as well as in removing scars and dark spots.

Because the procedure is not invasive or painful (and doesn’t require anesthetics), it’s a hassle-free procedure for getting a thorough and effective treatment for skin care.

Depending on your level of required skin care from a day spa Brisbane can offer you a skin care treatment that suits your skin type, treats various conditions and leave you feeling invigorated, refreshed and relaxed- in addition to your skin glowing. Whether you choose a regular facial or a microdermabrasion treatment, you will benefit immensely from the time and money you spend on it. Remember: healthy looking skin is crucial to looking your best.
