When performed by qualified plastic surgeons, estheticians or dermatologists, facials can be invaluable in treating blemishes, acne, oily skin or thinning, aging skin prone to dryness. Each facial is customized to your skin type and unique skincare needs, providing dramatic transformation while boosting self-confidence. Facials also help the skin to more easily absorb nutrients, serums, tonics and elixirs.

Is there any downtime for a facial?
Facials are not abrasive or invasive in any way, so you will not experience any negative side effects. Instead, your skin will feel hydrated, radiant and in its best shape. You should be sure to drink a lot of water after your facial to flush out the toxins that have been released.
Also, it is wise to continue your skincare regimen at home with medical-grade skincare products that Dr. Nadeau can suggest. Be sure to protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays by wearing the proper sunblock and a sunhat. Facials can be repeated at various intervals, typically between 4 and 6 weeks apart so the skin has time to run through its natural cycle of shedding dead cells.
Who makes a good facial candidate?
If you are frustrated with at-home products that don’t seem to be going far enough towards improving your skin, but you still want a gentle, non-invasive approach, a custom facial with Dr. Nadeau may be ideal. Good candidates are of sound mind and body, with realistic expectations for improvement.
