Facial | Mynx Aesthetik

Fine lines on your skin often signal a decrease in collagen production, a natural part of the aging process that can be exacerbated by inadequate hydration or sun damage.

Let us guide you through the benefits of our facial services, offering solutions that go beyond mere surface treatments.

What Is a Facial?

A facial is a comprehensive skincare treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion. This process helps to mitigate the effects of aging and environmental damage by rejuvenating the skin’s deeper layers. From basic treatments that refresh and maintain everyday skin health to advanced options like Hydrafacials®, Cryoskin™  pens, LAMPROBE treatments, and chemical peels, our available facials cater to a variety of skincare needs.

Types of Facials and Their Targets

Basic Facials

One of the types of facials that our patients are the most familiar with is the basic facial. These facials involve several relaxing steps that are all aimed at cleansing and nourishing the skin. Most facials include these three steps, along with others as recommended:

  • Cleansing: This initial phase removes dirt, oil, and makeup residue that can clog pores and exacerbate skin ailments. By deeply cleaning the skin, it prepares the face for subsequent steps and improves overall skin health.
  • Exfoliation: Exfoliation removes dead skin cells that dull the complexion and hinder the absorption of beneficial skincare products. This smooths and refines the skin’s surface and enhances its receptivity to treatments that follow.
  • Moisturizing: The final step in a basic facial involves applying a moisturizer that suits the skin type of the individual. Proper moisturizing helps to lock in hydration and protect the skin barrier, leaving the skin soft, supple, and guarded against environmental stresses.

Advanced Facial Treatments


The Hydrafacial is an anti-aging facial that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration in one swift treatment. It uses a patented device that delivers serums tailored to specific skin needs, effectively targeting concerns like wrinkles, dullness, and dryness. This treatment is gentle yet effective, making it suitable for all skin types, and offers a clearer, more vibrant complexion without downtime.

Cryoskin™ Pen

The Cryoskin Pen is a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses cold temperatures to reduce fine lines and puffiness to the skin’s overall firmness and appearance. It stimulates collagen production by applying precise cooling technology to targeted areas, refining the skin’s texture and tone. It is often chosen for its non-invasive nature and its ability to deliver noticeable results in a short amount of time.


LAMPROBE is a type of facial that uses radiofrequency technology to treat Minor Skin Irregularities™, typically in a single session. Conditions such as clogged pores, cherry angiomas, and other minor blemishes are effectively treated, resulting in smoother skin texture. The treatment is quick, with minimal discomfort, and is effective for a variety of skin types, making it a versatile addition to skincare regimens.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment that involves the application of a chemical solution that exfoliates the old skin, allowing new, more evenly textured skin to surface. Depending on the intensity of the peel, it can address a range of issues from fine lines and wrinkles to sun damage and acne scars. This treatment is customizable to different skin depths and conditions and offers improvements in both skin clarity and elasticity.

The Science Behind Facial Rejuvenation

Facial rejuvenation centers on an understanding of skin aging, aiming to counter its effects through various treatments. As skin ages, it loses collagen and elastin, which are critical for maintaining its firmness and elasticity. Exposure to environmental factors such as UV rays and pollution can accelerate the aging process and lead to more visible signs of aging such as wrinkles and loss of volume.

Facial treatments work by stimulating the skin’s natural repair processes. Techniques such as exfoliation remove dead skin cells and encourage new cell growth, while moisturizing treatments replenish hydration and strengthen the skin’s barrier against external aggressors.

The Core Benefits of Facial Treatments

  • Skin Rejuvenation: Facial treatments offer skin rejuvenation by accelerating the turnover of skin cells, which reduces dullness, improves skin texture, and offers skin tightening benefits. This process revitalizes the skin’s appearance and makes it look more youthful and radiant.
  • Enhanced Hydration: An anti-aging facial boosts the skin’s hydration levels, which helps the skin maintain its elasticity and minimizes the appearance of fine lines. Proper hydration also keeps the skin supple and contributes to an overall healthier look.
  • Clearer Complexion: Facial rejuvenation treatments clear out pores and reduce the prevalence of acne and blackheads, leading to a clearer and more even complexion.
  • Anti-Aging Effects: Anti-aging facials target visible signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots.
  • Relaxation and Stress Relief: Beyond the physical benefits, facials provide a relaxing experience that can alleviate stress. The soothing environment and hands-on application allow for a peaceful retreat from daily pressures and aid in overall mental and physical wellness.

Lifestyle and Skincare Routine Post-Facial

Daily Skincare Essentials

If you want to extend the results of your facial, you can begin by cleansing and moisturizing the face twice daily with products suited to your skin type. Applying sunscreen every morning also protects the skin from harmful UV rays, which can degrade collagen and prompt premature aging.

Enhanced Skincare Techniques

Incorporating specific facial treatment techniques into your routine can optimize skin health. Techniques such as using serums enriched with antioxidants at night or gentle exfoliants a few times a week help maintain the skin’s luminosity and smooth texture.

Nutrition and Hydration

A balanced diet rich in antioxidants and adequate hydration is a part of maintaining the benefits of your non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Foods high in vitamins C and E can protect the skin from environmental damage, while hydration keeps your skin elastic. Together, these habits support the skin’s natural barrier and enhance the overall effectiveness of facial treatments.

Regular Facials

Scheduling regular facials is a way to sustain skin health and vitality. These sessions revitalize the skin’s surface and address emerging skin concerns while maintaining the cumulative benefits of previous treatments. By keeping to a regular schedule, you keep your skin in optimal condition year-round.
