What Is A Facial?
Having a home skin care routine with good products can help maintain a great complexion, but sometimes you may need better results with a professional facial. Personalized to meet the needs and concerns of your complexion, board-certified physician Dr. Tricia Shimer recommends regular professional facials for her Dallas, TX patients as part of a healthy skin care routine. After a thorough consultation to evaluate both visible and hidden skin damage, the ideal medical-grade products and techniques will be chosen to treat your complexion. To further rejuvenate and pamper your skin, enhance your results by adding a complementary procedure, such as a chemical peel or IPL (intense pulsed light) therapy. Schedule an appointment for a professional, custom facial at Evolve Med Spa to elevate the health and beauty of your skin to a new level.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facial?
At Evolve Med Spa, we customize each facial to the patient's specific needs and concerns, making this an ideal procedure for all ages and skin types. Often, facials are used to correct early signs of aging (wrinkles, fine lines, dryness), improve sun-damaged skin (spots, rough texture, uneven tone), deep clean to help clogged pores and acne, and brighten dull and sallow skin. Facials are performed to help teens or adults with chronic conditions, like acne outbreaks, sensitive skin, and rosacea. The results of a professional facial can be strengthened by combining another skin treatment, such as a chemical peel.
How Is a Facial Performed?
After your consultation to create your unique treatment plan based on your skin type and needs, you will lie back in one of our treatment rooms as your professional facial is performed by our certified aesthetician. Every facial process will be customized, but most treatments will start with a deep cleansing to eliminate any dirt, oil, makeup, and lotion. After cleaning the skin, steam is often safely used to open the pores so whiteheads and blackheads can be easily extracted. This is often followed by exfoliation, either performed manually or with an added treatment. A mask or serum will be massaged in for deep nourishment. At the end of your treatment, an SPF moisturizer will be applied to protect the skin from UV damage.
What to Expect After Your Facial
Following your facial, you may see mild redness and irritation, but this should fade on its own in 12 – 24 hours. Most patients will have visible improvements in the appearance and touch of their complexion immediately after their facial. To maintain the benefits of your facial, please talk to one of our skilled team members for advice about creating a home skin care routine and how often you can schedule a facial at Evolve Med Spa. Dr. Shimer's team of certified skin care professionals can recommend other procedures based on your needs.
How Often Do I Need a Facial?
Ideally, you should get a facial about once a month to improve the health and appearance of your skin. Regular, professional facials at Evolve Med Spa exfoliate dead skin cells and improve your skin so it looks and feels great. During your consultation, your aesthetician will recommend how often to make appointments for facials to reach your initial goals and then to keep your skin healthy. In time, you might want to get different types of facials and get different add-on treatments to fit your needs. All of these are performed in our Dallas, TX office.
How much does a facial cost?
The cost of your facial will vary based on the type of facial, products used, and whether you add on any services. In your consult, your facialist will ask about your concerns and examine your skin before developing your custom facial treatment plan. Once this is complete, your aesthetician can estimate the cost of your facial. Evolve Med Spa frequently has specials on facials as well as discounted packages.
What type of facial should I get?
Every facial at Evolve Med Spa is customized based on the needs of your complexion. At the beginning of your visit, your facialist will ask about your issues and goals before assessing your complexion. Following this, your facialist will give you their suggestions for the type of facial you should get. You may also talk about add-on treatments, like a chemical peel or microdermabrasion, which may help improve the health and appearance of your skin.
Can I combine other treatments with a facial?
If you want to further customize your facial, you may want to add on another procedure, like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or microneedling. In your consultation, your aesthetician will make suggestions on other treatments that would boost the results of your facial and improve the condition of your skin.
How can I maintain the results of my facial at home?
A good skin care routine at home can help you extend the results of your facial. Following your facial, we can recommend products that are right for your skin type and goals. It is also crucial to wear sunscreen and avoid lengthy exposure to UV rays.
How often should I get a facial?
For optimal results, we recommend getting a professional facial every 4 – 6 weeks to improve the health of your skin. Facials, when received regularly, remove dead skin and nourish your skin so it looks and feels great. During your consultation, your aesthetician will discuss how often to get facials to reach your goals and then to keep your skin healthy. Over time, you might want to get different types of facials and get different add-ons to match your needs.
Is there any downtime after a facial?
There is usually little to no downtime after a facial. Some patients may experience mild redness or sensitivity, but this typically subsides within a few hours.
