As our skin begins to mature and change, we often require a little added boost to help revitalise our complexion. Facial treatments come in a variety of different forms and can offer a multitude of benefits, such as anti-ageing and reducing hyperpigmentation. This article will discuss some of the facial treatments that are currently available on the mass market, as well as explore some of Dermoi’s finest facial treatments.
How to choose the best treatment for your skin?
The best way to determine which facial treatment is most suitable for you, is to first discover your skin type. The most common skin types are dry skin, normal/combination skin and oily skin.
When identifying dry skin, look out for noticeable flaking and feelings of tightness throughout the day. Usually, dry skin is very common, as it is often brought on by our diets, more specifically dehydration. Therefore, it is always important to drink enough water to help preserve an adequate amount of water in your skin. Also, dry skin can also be a genetic factor, so take into account your family’s skin type when trying to decipher your own.
Normal/combination skin is characterised by both excess dryness and excess oiliness in specific areas of the face. In terms of dryness, you may spot dry patches on your cheeks, usually brought on by breakouts in this area also. Many people with normal/combination skin complain of having an excessively oily T-Zone, which can often lead to clogged pores and frequent breakouts.
Finally, oily skin is characterised by dark spots, frequent acne breakouts and is most in need of exfoliation. However, those with oily skin usually have less wrinkles around the forehead and mouth, as their excess oil acts as an effective moisturiser for the skin.
Different types of facial treatments
As the beauty industry continues to expand and become more and more innovative, a wave of facial treatments is beginning to immerse the mass market. Here are just some of the popular treatments available at the moment.
Firstly, microdermabrasion involves a beauty therapist using a handheld applicator which scatters a small number of crystals on to this skin. This, in turn, helps to remove the upper layer of damaged skin and encourages more youthful skin to form. Microdermabrasion is most suited for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as minimising enlarged pores and blemishes.
Laser skin resurfacing uses a collection of small layers to eliminate the outer layers of old skin, which helps to stimulate further collagen production. As a result, laser resurfacing treatment gives you more youthful and firmer skin overall.
Finally, chemical peels are a popular form of facial treatment which make use of subtle acids to help penetrate deep into the skin and restore any impurities. In turn, this type of facial treatment helps to balance your overall complexion and decrease any hyperpigmentation.

Why is facial treatment so important?
Facial treatments are not just a luxury, they are an essential factor is restoring and maintaining the quality of your skin. Due to their exfoliating nature, they help to clear the skin of any oil, dirt or other toxins, which could be brought on by harsh environmental factors, such as pollution. Moreover, a variety of facial treatments help to remove dead skin cells that may be trapped within your follicles, which helps to further prepare your skin for its important rejuvenation process. Furthermore, facial treatments are usually quite a relaxing procedure, which is extremely beneficial when it comes to the overall quality of our skin. When we are stressed or anxious, our body releases a stress hormone called cortisol. This hormone allows more oil to be released into our glands, which sometimes causes more breakouts to occur. Thus, when we feel relaxed, our glands release less oil, allowing our pores to become less clogged.
How long does it take to see results?
The healthy glow produced after receiving one of Dermoi’s signature facial treatments should be fairly immediate and should last for around 48-72 hours. However, the lasting effects of these facial treatments depend on its intensity and the number of sessions that you undertake. For example, the effects of a course of light facials should maintain for around 1-2 months. Additionally, a course of medium facials should still show beneficial results for around 2-6 months. If you receive a singular deep facial treatment, you should see lasting results for up to one year.
The developing world of facial treatments can seem overwhelming at times, especially if you are unsure of what skin type you are, or even what type of facial treatment is best for you. At Dermoi, we offer at-home treatments with a 15-minute consultation, meaning you can ask any important questions before the session and receive the treatment in the comfort of your own home. We offer a wide range of facial treatments applicable for a variety of skin types, so why not try out one of our high-quality facials and offer your skin the rejuvenation its deserves?
