How Beneficial Are Facials? – Mackay Skin Clinic Explains

Dr Graeme Cumming

Dear Dr Graeme,

How beneficial are facial treatments and what one would you recommend?

Certain facials, such as our Herbal Aktiv Peel, are beneficial treatments for a number of reasons. They can help to reduce lines and wrinkles, improve sun damaged skin, improve acne or congestion, and improve scarring. They can also work to reduce pigmentation, redness and age spots. Additionally, the Herbal Aktiv peel can be used simply to maintain healthy skin. This is a great facial treatment and one that we recommend.

Facials work differently depending on the ingredients and what they are aimed at helping.

During the peeling process of the Herbal Aktiv Peel, the herbs will gradually release their natural active substances such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, anti-oxidants and trace elements into the skin.

The treatment is safe and gives quick and visible results. Afterwards, your skin will be warm, and if touched there is a slight tingly sensation. It will be visibly firmer and smoother. The specialised home-care products designed to work with the Herbal Aktiv Peel will be prescribed for you. You will be asked to return to your skin therapist on day five, where they will perform a specialist treatment to remove old skin and reveal your “new skin”. Then further advice on future treatments and home-care to support your new skin will be provided.

This is just one of the high-end facial treatments that we offer. What works best for you will depend on environmental factors and how well you take care of your skin. We can analyse your skin to reveal damage and signs of ageing that aren’t visible to the human eye and once we have the results, the practitioner can help you determine what rejuvenation regime would best suit your needs. Visit us at the Mackay Skin Clinic to have your skin analysed and we can then discuss how you would like to proceed in terms of treatments and your personal skin goals.
