Facials Q & A

What are facials?

A facial is a relaxing experience and a great way to improve your skin’s softness and hydration. Integrated Dermatology of Tidewater provides several base options for facials using high-end products, and Lynn evaluates your skin beforehand to help you choose a facial designed to benefit your skin type. 

Your options for customizable facials at Integrated Dermatology of Tidewater include:

The Signature Enhance Facial

The Signature Enhance Facial lasts for about 50 minutes and includes deep pore cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, a lymphatic drainage massage, and a treatment mask with a specialized booster serum. Toward the end of the facial, Lynn applies an SPF to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. 

The Enhance Express Facial

The Enhance Express Facial is the perfect option for you if you’re busy and on-the-go. This 30-minute facial includes exfoliation, light extractions, a targeted mask, specialized serum, and a final SPF application. 

Dermaplaning Facial

The Dermaplaning Facial removes both dead skin cells and peach fuzz with physical exfoliation rather than chemical, so it’s safe for pregnant and nursing mothers. It also includes light extractions, a calming gel, a tightening mask, and a moisturizer with an SPF application. For an extra glow, you can add the vitamin C serum. 

Microdermabrasion Facial

The Microdermabrasion Facial features a resurfacing procedure with a diamond-tipped handpiece. It reduces sun damage, large pores, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines. The facial includes cleansing, exfoliation, light extractions, a peel, a calming gel, a tightening mask, Kojic acid serum, and a moisturizer with SPF application. 

You don’t have to limit the microdermabrasion facial to the skin on your face; you can also get it on your chest area or hands. 

Blue Light Treatment

The Blue Light Treatment uses intense blue light to kill acne-causing bacteria. If you get frequent acne breakouts, two Blue Light Treatments per week for five weeks can significantly reduce future breakouts and improve your skin’s texture. 

Which services can I add to my facial?

All of the facials available at Integrated Dermatology of Tidewater are customizable with additional services to further improve your complexion. With extra fees, you can add these services to your facial:

  • Dermaplaning
  • LED light treatment
  • Face microdermabrasion
  • Decolletage microdermabrasion
  • Hand microdermabrasion

Before customizing your facial with services like these, you should consult with Lynn to make sure your skin won’t react poorly to any part of the treatment. She can help you take advantage of the available customization options by using treatments that aren’t too harsh for your skin type. 

Which beauty boosters can I add to my facial?

Beauty boosters are high-quality serums that you can add to your facial to give your skin the nutrients it needs. Depending on your goals and expectations, Lynn might recommend adding:

  • Kojic acid serum
  • Vitamin C serum
  • Retinal serum
  • Peptide serum
  • Hydration serum
  • Neck-firming serum

If you have any questions about the benefits of each available beauty booster, Lynn can answer them during your initial consultation appointment.
