What Are the Benefits of a Facial?
Facials are an ideal method to help you feel and look more rejuvenated. There are multiple advantages to facials at Optima Medical Spa, including:
- Smoother, more vibrant complexion

Who is a candidate for facials?
Facials at Optima Medical Spa are for all skin types and ages because they are adjusted to each patient's needs and goals. Often, facials are used to address:
- Signs of aging (fine lines and dryness)
- Improve sun-damaged skin (spots, rough texture, uneven tone)
- Deep clean clogged pores and stubborn acne
- Brighten dull skin
Professional facials can be designed to help teens and adults with chronic conditions, like acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin.
What to Expect During a facial
After a consultation to develop your facial based on your skin type and needs, you will lie back in a treatment room as your professional facial begins. Most facials will begin with a deep cleaning to remove dirt, oil, and makeup. After the skin is clean, steam is used to open clogged pores so blackheads and whiteheads can be extracted easily. This is typically followed by a type of exfoliation, either performed manually or with an add-on treatment. A serum may then be massaged into the skin for deep nourishment. To end the treatment, an SPF moisturizer selected for your skin type will be applied to protect the skin from UV damage following the treatment.
How Long is Recovery After a facial?
After your facial, you may notice mild redness and irritation, but this should subside on its own within 24 hours. Many patients will have clear improvements in the look and feel of their skin immediately after their facial. To extend the results of your facial, ask one of our skilled team members for help selecting a home skin care routine and how often you can have a facial at Optima Medical Spa.
How much does a facial cost?
Prices will depend on the type of treatment and if you add on any other services. During your initial consultation, we will ask about your needs and examine your skin before designing your custom treatment plan. After this, we can determine the cost of your facial. Optima Medical Spa frequently has specials on facials and other skin treatments, as well as discounted packages.
How often should I get a facial?
For optimal results, facials should be scheduled every 4 – 6 weeks to improve the health of your skin. Facials, when received regularly, help to remove dead skin and improve your complexion so it looks and feels great. In your consult, we will discuss how often to get facials to reach your goals and to keep your skin healthy. Over time, you might try different facial types and get other add-on treatments to fit your changing skin needs.
How can I maintain the results of my facial at home?
Having a home skin care routine will help maintain your results. After your treatment, we can recommend products that are right for your skin type. It's also crucial to apply sunscreen for protection when you're in the sun. Minimize lengthy exposure to UV rays (both natural sunlight and tanning beds).
What type of facial should I get?
Every facial at Optima Medical Spa is customized based on the needs of your skin. At the start of your visit, we will ask about your concerns and goals before assessing your skin. Following this, your aesthetician will give you suggestions for the type of facial you should get. You can also consider complementary treatments, such as a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, which may help improve the appearance and health of your skin.
Can I combine other treatments with a facial?
Yes. To further enhance your facial, you can add on another procedure. Common treatments that are added to facials include microdermabrasion, a chemical peel, or microneedling. During your consult at our Los Angeles, CA practice, we can make suggestions on other treatments that will boost the results of your facial and improve the condition of your skin.
Can I get a facial while pregnant?
Yes, in many cases, you can get a facial while pregnant, but it's essential to inform your aesthetician about your pregnancy during your consultation. This will ensure the right precautions are taken as certain treatments and ingredients, like chemical peels or strong exfoliants, may be harmful to be exposed to during pregnancy. Optima Medical Spa prioritizes patient safety and will make certain you get a facial you can enjoy without worrying.
Encourage healthy skin
Every facial at Optima Medical Spa is customized for your needs. Dr. Ishaaya has found that his patients who frequently get facials seem to have clearer and healthier complexions. Contact our Los Angeles, CA office to schedule your appointment for a facial or any of our skin treatments.
