Think facials are a frivolous way to pamper your skin? We’re here to say No way! We spoke with a local esthetician from Spa Cahaba in Hoover who filled us in on why facials are totally worth your while. Ahem! Fellas, this article is for you, too.
Say hello to Joy Bianchi, licensed esthetician at Spa Cahaba
After battling acne-prone skin during her teen years, Bianchi decided she wanted to help others achieve better skin and make them feel more confident.
She has now been an esthetician for nine years and is currently helping people around the Greater Birmingham Area get the healthy, glowing skin they’ve always wanted.
“I’m so blessed that I get to do what I love every day and connect with each and every patient that walks through my door. I love people and enjoy starting the journey of skin health with them.”Joy Bianchi, Licensed Esthetician, Spa Cahaba
What type of facial should you get?
If you’ve ever Googled “types of facials”, you quickly discovered the list is vast. From microdermabrasion to acne facials, how do you know which facial is right for you?
According to Bianchi, before you make an appointment for a facial, it’s a good idea to set up a consultation first.
“During a consultation, be prepared to tell your Esthetician what products you have been using on your skin daily, and if you’ve had any other treatments prior to your appointment.
It’s also important to mention any issues your skin has. Examples include acne, chronic dryness, and so on.”Joy Bianchi, Licensed Esthetician, Spa Cahaba
Based upon these things, your esthetician can determine which facial is ideal for your skin. Plus, consultations are free!

What should a good facial include?
For many, the answer to this question is a treatment that will have your skin model-ready in under an hour. But, come on, you know there’s more to it than that.
“Our facials start with a skin analysis, followed by a deep cleanse, exfoliation, extractions if needed and a facial massage for circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Then, hydration is put back into the skin with a mask and medical-grade products.”Joy Bianchi, Licensed Esthetician, Spa Cahaba
What should someone expect during a facial?
If you’ve never had a facial before, get ready for one of the most relaxing and satisfying experiences ever.
Performed in a dimly lit room with soft music you’ll instantly feel that relaxed zen you’ve been craving.
During this time, your esthetician will perform a skin analysis to know which products/treatment are right for you, followed by a deep cleaning treatment.
When all is said and done, your skin will be happy, hydrated and glowing.
What are the short-term/long-term benefits of facials?
We all love the instant gratification a facial provides—unclogged pores and clean, exfoliated skin. But these are just the short-term benefits of facials.
But let’s be honest, it’s the long-term benefits we all truly desire.
“Investing in regular facials will give you more long-term benefits for your skin. Seeing your esthetician regularly will lead to more even skin tone, slow down the aging process and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.”Joy Bianchi, Licensed Eesthetician, Spa Cahaba
