Should I get a facial every month?

are facials worth it

Everybody wants to have healthy, radiant skin but with all the facial treatment options and snake oil serums promising instant results, it's hard to know what route to go. That is why Skinkind Facial Retreat, Boston's premier spa, offers monthly facials as a highly effective method to achieve and maintain optimal skin health.

Far beyond the occasional pampering session, regular facials at Skinkind offer a tangible benefits that can transform your skin's appearance and vitality. From deep cleansing and exfoliation to stress relief and anti-aging effects, the advantages of incorporating monthly facials into your skincare regimen at Skinkind are compelling. Here, we explore the key benefits of receiving facials on a monthly basis, revealing how a monthly facial membership program can make facials affordable, and why this practice can be a cornerstone of your skincare strategy.

Deep Cleansing

At this Boston spa, each facial begins with a thorough cleansing process that surpasses your daily skincare routine. This intensive cleanse involves the use of steam to soften pores, followed by both oil-based and water-based cleansers to effectively remove impurities. Warm towels are used to gently remove the cleansers, ensuring every trace of dirt is eliminated and your skin is a blank slate for the rest of your facial. An ideal Elevation to choose for deep pore cleansing is our Hydrapurge facial elevation. This is a similar treatment as the Hydrafacial MD and will leave your skin squeaky clean and glowing. This deep cleansing process effectively unclogs pores, reduces sebum production, and eliminates bacteria, which helps manage acne and prevent breakouts. By thoroughly preparing your skin, Skinkind ensures optimal absorption of the subsequent treatments, resulting in clearer, healthier skin.


Exfoliation is an essential cornerstone of every facial treatment at Skinkind Facial Retreat. Here, professional-grade exfoliation facial techniques are meticulously applied to the skin, surpassing the efficacy of at-home treatments. By employing specialized methods and products tailored to individual skin types and concerns, Skinkind ensures the thorough removal of dead skin cells, revealing a renewed and revitalized complexion. This meticulous exfoliation process not only promotes the shedding of dull and damaged skin cells but also stimulates cell turnover, encouraging the emergence of fresher, healthier skin from beneath. As this layer of dead cells is gently sloughed away, the skin's natural renewal process is accelerated, resulting in a smoother, more radiant appearance. Moreover, by effectively eliminating this barrier, the skin is primed to absorb subsequent skincare products more efficiently, maximizing their benefits. The outcome is not just skin that looks and feels rejuvenated but also a complexion that is better equipped to receive the full spectrum of skincare benefits, ensuring long-lasting results and a glowing, youthful complexion. Your Aestheticans at our Boston spa have a variety of tools at their disposable for a great exfoliation. Some possible choices are a microdermabrasion facial or if you want to hydrate and exfoliate at the same time, the hydrabrasion facial is amazing because it uses a diamond tip to exfoliate as well hyaluronic acid and water to hydrate. Alternatively, you can make it easy and schedule a customized Let The Experts Decide Trio Facial for up to 3 elevations to exfoliate and renew your skin.

Improved Circulation

The benefits of improved circulation are seamlessly woven into each 20-minute facial session. Here, skilled Aestheticians incorporate facial massages as a cornerstone of the treatment, targeting key areas including the face, neck, shoulders, and arms. Through these expertly executed massages, blood flow is gently stimulated, fostering enhanced circulation throughout the treated regions. This boost in circulation facilitates the delivery of oxygen and vital nutrients to the skin cells, promoting cellular rejuvenation and overall skin health. As a result, clients experience not only a physical sense of relaxation but also a visible transformation in their complexion. The improved blood flow imparts a natural, healthy glow to the skin, radiating vitality and well-being from within. Whether it's relieving tension in the shoulders or promoting a youthful complexion, the holistic approach to facials ensures that every minute of your session contributes to your skin's optimal health and luminosity. We have a variety of Elevations that improve circulation. You could consider a Galvanic Facial, a Lymphatic Drainage Facial, or Radio Frequency facial.


Anti-Aging Benefits

Every skin treatment at Skinkind Facial Retreat delivers anti-aging benefits in one way or another. Our treatments target various aspects of aging skin to promote a smoother, firmer complexion. By stimulating collagen production, certain facial treatments work to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These specialized techniques encourage the skin to produce more collagen, a crucial protein that maintains its structural integrity. As a result, clients experience visible improvements in their skin texture and elasticity.

Skin Firming: We understand the importance of maintaining skin elasticity and firmness to combat the effects of aging. Regular facial treatments help to address these concerns by promoting skin firmness and resilience. As the skin naturally loses its elasticity over time, our targeted approaches work to counteract this process, resulting in a more lifted and toned appearance. For example, the Microcurrent Facial elevation is designed to lift and retrain muscles to go back to their original (pre-gravity and time) positions.

Specialized Anti-Aging Treatments: In addition to our standard facial services, we offer a variety of specialized treatments designed specifically to target aging concerns. Galvanic facials utilize low-level electrical currents to enhance the penetration of skincare products and improve skin texture. Microcurrent therapy stimulates facial muscles, resulting in improved tone and reduced wrinkles. Our green herbal peel treatment exfoliates and regenerates the skin, promoting cell renewal and reducing the signs of aging. Red LED therapy stimulates collagen production and increases cellular activity, while radio frequency facials tighten loose or sagging skin.

Stress Relief: At Skinkind, we prioritize holistic well-being, emphasizing the stress-relieving benefits of our facial treatments. Our serene environment and expert techniques create a soothing experience that extends beyond skincare. A facial here is more than just a treatment; it's a rejuvenating escape from daily stresses. The gentle touch of our skilled estheticians and the calming ambiance of our spa work wonders in alleviating tension and promoting relaxation. As you sink into blissful tranquility, your body releases stress hormones, allowing you to unwind and recharge mentally and physically. 

If you are primarily looking to relax and relieve stress, you should let your Aesthetician know and they will customize your facial accordingly. Consider booking the Lymphatic Facial or a Let the Experts Decide Customized Solo Facial.  We will apply our headphones during your facial service so that you can zone out.

Taking time for self-care is essential for nurturing mental and emotional well-being. In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to overlook the importance of self-care amidst busy schedules. However, investing in moments of relaxation and pampering is crucial for maintaining a healthy mind-body connection. By prioritizing self-care, you give yourself permission to pause and recharge, cultivating a positive mindset that radiates from within.
