I'm too afraid to get a facial because I fear I might break out."
This is a common fear among women and men who haven't had a facial.
First and foremost what is "breaking out" to you? Is it one pimple? Is it bumpiness on the chin and jaw? Is it blackheads? Is your skin super sensitive or does it have a tendency to break out at certain times of the month? Did you have breakouts prior to your first facial. What do you use on your skin? Do you wax or use depilatories? What's your main goal? These are all questions (and many more) we ask so that we can customize a facial for your skin type and concern.
If you have clear skin with minor breakouts the truth is that you will most likely not have any problems. And if you do have congested skin most likely you will be on a path to having clearer skin after your first facial.
