When you visit an aesthetic centre, chances are you will be offered different services and facial treatments. To be honest, there are more than a handful of them and deciding what to get can be confusing. With all the different facial treatments laid in front of you, choosing the best to help your skin rejuvenate can be quite difficult.

Remember that when choosing a facial procedure, you have to take note of your skin type, skin condition, age, and what your skin needs at the moment. Does it need to regain back its glow? Does it lack hydration and moisture? Do you need acne facial? Try asking yourself these questions in order for you to come up with a decision.

In this article, we have broken down some of the commonly used jargon at aesthetic centres for facial treatments, to help you decide which procedure to book and target those problem areas.

Basic Facial
Basic facials involve cleansing and exfoliating the skin. Basically, this type of facial procedure helps you get rid of a layer of dead skin cells lying on top of your fresh skin, that is doing nothing but blocking the pores below. Basic facial treatments also include massages that help your blood circulation for a fresher looking skin. Basic facials are often recommended for people who have not tried any kinds of facial treatments yet.

Microdermabrasion Facial
If you want your skin and pores cleaned thoroughly, opt for microdermabrasion. In this procedure, micronised crystals scour the skin, removing dead skin cells to reveal a youthful and fresher surface. The pressurised jet also helps in sweeping the dead skin cells away from your face. When availing of this facial treatment, it is important to check that the centre is using the proper equipment to perform this procedure to avoid any problems or unwanted reactions from your skin.

Paraffin Facial
Before you worry about the aesthetician pouring hot, melted wax on your skin, let us first discuss what a paraffin facial is about. Paraffin facials use, well, melted paraffin wax by spreading a thin layer of it across your face starting from the forehead. This type of facial treatment is very beneficial to maintaining moisture and hydration within the skin, as well as reversing the advanced signs and symptoms of skin ageing. Paraffin facials reveal radiant-looking skin after the procedure.

Oxygen Facial
The use of oxygen in various skincare procedures has been gaining popularity in the recent years. Oxygen itself is known to provide a lot of benefits not only to our bodies but to our skin as well. It helps in providing nutrients to the cells to keep your skin looking healthy while also brightening, calming, and lifting any sagging caused by ageing. Oxygen facials are more likely to reveal a firmer and smoother skin texture and appearance.

These are only some of the most common facial procedures done in most aesthetic clinics, not counting the widely available facial treatments in Singapore. It is good to have knowledge about their differences so you will know which to book and what will work for your skin.
