As the human body ages, its processes begin to slow and do not function as efficiently as when it was younger. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is no exception as the natural shedding of its outermost layer, or desquamation, slows. When people are younger, the skin naturally exfoliates itself approximately once a month; however, the frequency diminishes as the years progress to anywhere between 45 and 90 days. People get facials for a variety of reasons, from using it as an anti-aging treatment to unclogging pores, but the results are always the same — healthier, clearer, and more even-toned skin. Professional facials are the most effective because the aesthetician uses their experience to analyze an individual’s skin then cater the treatment to the appropriate skin type and issues. Professional skin care products are also generally more effective, but the #1 reason for going to a professional is the safe extraction of blackheads and impurities, resulting in less facial damage. One very effective skin exfoliation method is dermaplaning, which can be performed on its own, with a cooling mask treatment, or in conjunction with a full facial at Scott Talbot Salonspa in Akron, Ohio, and Canton, Ohio. Anyone can take the short drive from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio; Massillon, Ohio; and beyond to uncover healthier skin at this local beauty salon.
