Are There Different Facials For Different Skin Types?

Are There Different Facials For Different Skin Types

People often think of custom facials as a treat they only get on special occasions. However, many don’t realize that facials can also be essential to a regular skincare routine. 

But it’s easy to get confused by the words on a spa treatment menu and not know what you need or want. The truth is that there are so many different kinds of facials because they all deal with other skin problems. 

At Allen Medical Aesthetics, our skilled estheticians are well-versed in all kinds of facials and love to share their knowledge with their clients. Today, let’s talk about the different facials for your skin type. 

Custom Facials at Allen Medical Aesthetics

Your skin can look better quickly if you regularly use the right skincare products to do facial treatments. At Allen Medical Aesthetics, we customize our facials and corrective skin treatments to meet your skin’s needs. 

We have a wide range of facials and skin treatments that help skin look better. It takes sixty minutes to finish one of our relaxing and rejuvenating facial treatments.

Contact Allen Medical Aesthetics today to set up a time for your custom facial. Or take a look first in this post to see which ones best fit you!


Our super serums with antioxidants, amino acids, and hyaluronic acid deep clean, extract and hydrate the skin. Includes are suctioning/pulling, Fine Jet Stream, and cold hummer therapy. For $10, you can add Dermaplaning.


Microdermabrasion removes the oil, dirt, and dead skin cells on the skin’s surface so that the younger, brighter skin cells underneath can show through. This treatment starts with a deep clean and ends with an Obagi/SkinMedica moisturizer with SPF 50 and a calming mask for your skin type.

Dermaplanning Facial

During a dermaplaning facial, a soothing mask and brightening serums are used. For $25, you can add extraction.


During the procedure, a medical-grade blade is used to shave your skin’s surface gently. This removes dead skin cells and facial hairs. 

This treatment works well for people who want their skin to look younger, smoother, and brighter. Still, the effects usually only last about three weeks. Recovery from this procedure doesn’t take any time.

All of these custom facial treatments are available here at Allen Medical Aesthetics. But if you’re still wondering what its benefits could be. Here are some: 

Benefits of Facials in General

  • Help cut down on the signs
  • It provides a relaxing experience
  • Aids in getting rid of active acne
  • Cleanses and scrubs the skin to make it look younger.
  • Maintains your skin suppleness
  • It brings down skin inflammation
  • It makes scars look less noticeable.

Other Different Facials To Try

Other than what we offer here at Allen Medical Aesthetics, there are other facials that you can try. Most of these are the standard treatments that can help you benefit your skin in general. Here are those. 


A classic or standard facial usually includes cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, a mask, and a moisturizer. This facial is excellent for people with normal to dry skin because it calms them down. 

Extractions clean out clogged pores and are safe for most skin types as long as the esthetician uses steam to soften the pores first and wears gauze on her fingers. 

But note that people with rosacea or eczema should ask to skip the steaming because it can worsen their conditions. Speak with your doctor to understand better if the classic suits you. 


An anti-aging facial is very similar to a regular facial. It uses active ingredients and procedures to fight the signs of aging on the skin at least 30 years old. 

These facials usually include cleansing, exfoliation, or skin resurfacing (often done with microdermabrasion), masks, deep-pore cleaning with extractions, and hydration elements. 

They may also use serums with many antioxidants and ingredients like collagen to help the skin look and feel better. But make sure to give your skin time to heal after this one because depending on how vital the different elements are, it can cause flaking and peeling.

Skin Brightening

A brightening custom skin facial can help ashy, sun-damaged, or dull skin. Using powerful antioxidants like Vitamin C evens your skin tone and fights hyperpigmentation. Most of the time, masks, enzyme peels, and acid treatments are used to eliminate dead skin cell buildup. The result is skin that looks bright and healthy.

Custom Facials in General

Custom facials can help with a wide range of problems, from aging too quickly and damage from the environment to acne flare-ups and a dull, patchy complexion. 

When you get a custom facial, the products and methods are made to fit your skin’s needs. Custom facials can help with a wide range of problems, from aging too quickly and damage from the environment to acne flare-ups and a dull, patchy complexion. 

Sometimes it’s hard to face the facts about our skin. If your less-than-perfect skin is stressing you out and you need a pick-me-up, you might want to book a custom facial at your favorite spa.

Again, these custom treatments can be made for any skin and may include deep cleaning, extractions, exfoliation, or more high-tech procedures like peels and microdermabrasion. 

Some skincare providers offer a quick massage of the head, neck, and shoulders as a bonus to the facial.
