Updated: 3 days ago
Facials are a great way to rejuvenate and refresh the skin. From basic cleansing and exfoliating to more complex treatments such as chemical peels and laser therapies, facials can help address a range of skin concerns. You know and love the facials we provide at Wellspring Skincare, but have you heard of the Glass Facial? This new facial trend involves the use of dermal fillers and neurotoxins to achieve a more youthful, glowing complexion, and Wellspring is happy to announce we offer it!
What is a glass facial?
A Glass Facial is a cosmetic treatment that combines dermal fillers and neurotoxins to improve the appearance of the skin. Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body and helps to plump and hydrate the skin. Neurotoxins, on the other hand, are injections of botulinum toxin that relax the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles and fine lines.
The term "glass facial" comes from the facial giving the skin a glass-like, radiant appearance by plumping and smoothing out wrinkles.
How is a Glass Facial performed?
A Glass Facial involves stamping the skin with a specially engineered device that penetrates the skin to a targeted depth, while precisely delivering set doses of dermal fillers and neurotoxins. The dermal fillers work to add volume to the skin, while the neurotoxins work to relax the muscles that create wrinkles and fine lines.
The treatment is generally quick and relatively painless. Patients may experience some mild discomfort during the injections, but this can be minimized with the use of topical numbing cream. There is usually no downtime required after a Glass Facial, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately.
What are the benefits of a Glass Facial?
The Glass Facial is said to provide a range of benefits, including:
Smooth, radiant skin: The dermal fillers and neurotoxins work together to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines and add volume to the skin, resulting in a more youthful, glowing complexion.
Improved skin texture: The treatment can help improve the texture of the skin by stimulating collagen production and reducing the appearance of pores.
Minimal downtime: Unlike more invasive cosmetic procedures, a Glass Facial requires little to no downtime, so patients can resume their normal activities right away.
Long-lasting results: The effects of a Glass facial can last for several months, depending on the specific products used and individual patient factors.
Who is a good candidate for a Glass Facial?
A Glass Facial may be a good option for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin and achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion. In general, a Glass Facial may be most beneficial for patients who have:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Loss of facial volume
Dull or uneven skin tone
