Facials are great maintenance treatments meant to cleanse, firm, smooth, moisturize and rejuvenate the skin.
Many people swear by facials not only as a way to feel relaxed and pampered, but also as a means for making their skin healthier. According to data collected by the International Spa Association, facials are the third most popular spa treatment.

A professional facial is more than a luxurious way to de-stress. Performed by a qualified facialist, your San Antonio facial will be customized to target your specific skin concerns. After deep cleansing, extracting, exfoliating, and serum application, your skin will take on a rejuvenated, healthy appearance, absent of imperfections such as flakiness, unevenness, dullness, and pore congestion.
As discovered by our patients in San Antonio facials can improve and alleviate numerous conditions. Many experience calming, soothing, balancing and controlling of irritated and inflamed conditions, such as acne and rosacea.
Facials for clients with rosacea are soothing services using products aimed at calming irritation and decreasing the appearance of redness associated with this skin condition. Designed to protect, correct, and boost the skin by strengthening delicate capillaries and evening skin tone. People with Acne find acne facial treatments are a great relief. The results will be dependent upon how severe the acne is and the type of facial being done as well as how skilled the aesthetician is at performing the facial. Those who are suffering from non-inflammatory conditions and blackheads may find a facial may actually reduce the breakouts and eliminate the blackheads.
You might consider a facial in San Antonio if you have:
For some people, the stress reduction and confidence boost after receiving a facial are enough to justify the cost. However, a bespoke facial is more than a superficial treatment. Maintaining your skin with regular facials can help your skin remain even, radiant, and hydrated every day. In addition, facial clients enjoy a visibly brighter and more even complexion with fewer imperfections. For this last reason, facials are also ideal for prepping the skin before special events.
Here are a few more reasons to have a facial:
This is not necessarily true in most cases. But in some cases, with problem skin, removing entrenched bacteria could also take multiple treatments over a period of weeks. The goal is to have luminous, even and revitalized skin, but if some rehab is necessary to achieve that, there could be a few bumps (literally) along the way. Regular facial treatments can revitalize your skin and give it a vibrant and dewy appearance, but it pays to have a skin maintenance routine at home, too. That way, your facials will be less likely to cause temporary blemishes and your skin will thank you with a warm, happy glow.
DiamondGlow™ is a bespoke facial treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin with proprietary serum infusions to reveal a bright, soft, hydrated complexion while alleviating skin-specific imperfections.
Developed by Allē, a world leader in aesthetic beauty, the device features a diamond-tip wand that sloughs away dead skin cells to deep clean and resurface the skin. At the same time, 3X1™ vacuum technology delivers an infusion of up to three serums deep within the upper dermis, where they are most effective.
The wand head is customizable to every skin type. For example, the smooth tip is perfect for sensitive areas, while coarser tips provide a deeper level of exfoliation. With this level of precision, DiamondGlow™ offers more customizations and a better user experience when compared to HydraFacial, which is equipped with a single treatment mode.
If your primary concerns are sun damage, dull skin, fine lines, or acne scars, you might want to try the Perfect Derma Peel. This medium-depth peel provides dramatic, consistent, predictable results for those who want to reduce hyperpigmentation and textural concerns. It can even minimize the appearance of large pores. Mature skin types will benefit from increased collagen and elastin, which work in tandem to restore firmness and elasticity.
The advanced DiamondGlow™ facial cleanses, extracts, exfoliates, and nourishes using a diamond-tip handpiece, vacuum suction, and patented Tissue Nutrient Solutions, or serums. Your treatment may include one or more of the following SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums.
TNS® Advanced+ Serum
An anti-aging complex of ingredients and growth factors targets coarse wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin to improve texture and tone for a more youthful complexion.
Patented Lumixyl® peptide lifts away uneven pigmentation to brighten the skin and impart a radiant glow.
An infusion of hyaluronic acid works wonders to rehydrate and smooth the skin, so it appears luminous, soft, and flake-free.
Ideal for city dwellers, a deep dose of antioxidants goes to work protecting the skin from free radicals while also rejuvenating skin that has been compromised by environmental aggressors.
Acne-prone skin types benefit from powerful blemish-fighting ingredients that free congested pores and promote clearer skin.
If you are seeking or considering facials San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery offers a thorough assessment that will determine your specific skin type. Following this assessment, one of our experienced aestheticians will design a customized treatment plan to suit your skin’s particular requirements and give you the best results.
Skin care specialists recommend that people have a professional facial about every three to four weeks. That’s how long it takes your skin to move through the full life cycle of skin cell growth and exfoliation. Consistent facials helps that process along. The treatment will keep your skin clean, clear, and toned. For those who are experiencing frequent breakouts or tend to have oilier skin, having a facial more often is recommended during acne flares. Come in every two weeks to clear your skin and bring it to a healthier place.
While DiamondGlow™ and HydraFacial both cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, and replenish the skin with nutrients, there are important differences between the two treatments.
HydraFacial’s handpiece has a single treatment mode, so it offers less versatility when it comes to targeting specific skin concerns.
DiamondGlow™ is a personalized treatment based on five core serum collections. Each advanced SkinMedica® serum targets a unique set of skin issues, resulting in a brilliant complexion with improved radiance, softness, and smoothness both instantly and over time. Since DiamondGlow™ is fully customizable, it caters to your skin’s exact needs to ensure the best results from your San Antonio facial.
A traditional facial costs around $150, while the average cost of DiamondGlow™ is approximately $200, depending on who performs your treatment. Geographic location, amenities, and the practitioner’s experience are additional factors that can affect not only pricing but your overall experience while having a facial.
Most clients come in every three to four weeks for the best results. Those with acne-prone skin types may benefit from more frequent facials. Having a facial treatment every two weeks can help alleviate acne flare-ups quickly.
The results from DiamondGlow™ last until the skin cells turnover, or nearly four weeks. Maintenance with SkinMedica products at home can extend the results by several weeks. Your provider can suggest the skincare regimen that best fits your needs.
Facials can benefit everyone regardless of age. Many clients begin having facials as early as their teens when hormonal changes start to disrupt the skin and cause comedones. Our custom facials in San Antonio are excellent for acne, dryness, uneven tone, dullness, rough texture, and fine lines so you can have flawless skin at every stage of your life.
Most clients see visible improvement starting from day one. However, to appreciate the full results of SkinMedica® serums, allow two weeks or more. The serums work continuously to improve your skin condition, so the results get better with time.
