How often should I get facials?
Professional skin care experts recommend getting a facial once every month as it takes 28 days for your skin to complete the skin cell turnover process. As one ages, this process slows down. Regular skin care treatments will help fight the dull, lifeless skin aging brings! If you do have problematic skin, you may need to do a course of treatments of once a week to treat the problem.
