Give Your Teen a Facial This Year

Often, we adults are so distracted by our own skin issues related to aging — dryness, wrinkles, and sagging — that we forget teens deal regularly with their own vexing skin challenges, things like excess oil, blackheads, and pimples. In fact, 80% of teens struggle with acne

Dr. Samuel Figueroa and the talented Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa team in Godfrey, Illinois, help teens and adults alike with diverse skin conditions, employing only the most advanced and proven aesthetic treatments.

Teens have special skin challenges

In the old days, a teen with shiny, broken-out skin might be told to get some Clearasil® and call it a day. Now we know that a smart approach to skin care is more complex than that. 

Teens deal with a variety of skin challenges that definitely aren’t one-size-fits-all:

Often they especially struggle with shine and oil in their T-zones, the area that starts on the chin and goes straight up the nose, expanding out in both directions on the forehead. Wherever oil and pimples strike, however, a teen can easily get disheartened.

Teen skin problems are more than skin deep

Adolescence is difficult enough that when hard-to-hide skin problems are added to the picture, a teen can feel vulnerable and self-conscious. Even if skin problems aren’t a permanent situation, a prominent “zit” can really cramp the style of a young man or woman.

It’s well known that feeling bad about how we look is linked to depression and anxiety, and these effects are magnified when you’re younger

How can you help your child with their skin?

Aside from routine dermatological treatment, your teen might really benefit from a facial. The advantage of a facial is that it’s not strictly diagnostic, like a visit to the dermatologist. It’s an indulgent, fun, and therapeutic step that helps your teen’s skin — and makes them feel special. 

Since our menu of facials is highly customized, we’re able to give your teen a facial that addresses their specific needs. We can provide a treatment that targets their acne specifically — and the problems that go along with it, like clogged pores, excess oil, and pimples. 

The experience is relaxing and they sit back while we get to work:

The final step of our acne facial experience is when we apply a mask that’s specially designed to remove oil buildup on the skin.

If your child is affected more by oil, enlarged pores, and the occasional pimple as opposed to full-blown acne, our teen facial may be more appropriate. 

During this treatment, we concentrate on revitalizing their skin, and its restorative effects mean that weeks down the road, their skin remains brighter and clearer.

If your older teen son is in need of a skin pick-me-up, our gentleman’s facial is the ideal service. 

We still slough impurities and dead skin cells away through exfoliation and remedy clogged pores through extraction, but depending on your son’s skin needs, we follow this up with either a hydrating mask or one geared to addressing oiliness. 

We conclude the treatment with a neck and shoulder massage that’s sure to relax him. 

Adults deserve skin-pampering too

While your teen is getting their treatment, why not enjoy one yourself? 

Our game-changing HydraFacialⓇ is a truly special five-step process that offers personalized topical treatments to address your unique skin problems. 

We thoroughly cleanse your skin, apply an acid peel, exfoliate, do high tech extraction, and apply an intense hydration boost and protective products.

Our HydraFacial not only helps with dryness, flaking, and wrinkles, but also with problems related to excess oil production and breakouts. It’s one of our most versatile treatments. 

You can even get a facial that’s completely dedicated to your back or add on a chemical peel, lip exfoliation, microdermabrasion, or a treatment specific to dark undereye circles. It’s up to you. 

We encourage you to combine your aesthetics treatment with the cream of the crop skin care product lines we carry, so your treatment benefits can last even longer. Remember too that this month we’re offering skin-loving Valentine’s Day gift boxes, so don’t forget your significant other!
