Top 5 benefits of a facial in Rochester

What is a “facial?”

There are various different types of facials you can choose in Rochester, but they all should involve at least these three steps:

  • Pore cleansing
  • Gentle exfoliation
  • Intense hydration

Each step involves different processes, with different specific results. Your Envision Aesthetics medical professional can help you define which is best suited for your concerns, goals, and comfort levels. You can start that journey on your own with our free virtual consultation tool, or schedule an appointment to personally discuss the best avenues to the best version of you. 

Why people get these types of facials in Rochester

We all love having glowing, gorgeous skin. But there are other reasons you might desire one of our types of facials in Rochester. 


Certain medical facial procedures can help soothe and restore the skin after more aggressive treatments. Some can even treat the skin from the inside out, promoting collagen stimulation for better skin health, improving circulation, and removing toxins and infectious bacteria.


The world today is non-stop, and that kind of stress can affect not only your skin—frown lines, stress hormones like cortisol that increase oil production—but your frame of mind. You must remember to take time out for yourself. As Marie Kondo would say, do something to “spark joy.” And a relaxing, rejuvenating experience at Envision Aesthetics not only relieves stress, it’s an investment in keeping that joy going in your life.

For many of us, having our face, our skin, reflect more accurately how we feel on the inside matters. When the mirror speaks to our youthful inner core, we approach the day, and the world, with more energy, more vitality. And people notice that. These types of facials in Rochester can also help alleviate issues that have made you feel less confident, like acne scars, wrinkles, or unwanted facial hair.

Envision offers several types of facials in Rochester

Time to face the choices! Not just what kind of face, but where you want it. Yes, where—because, you guessed it, sometimes a facial isn’t just for your face. It’s about treating your skin’s exact needs. 

Medical Grade Facial

Medical grade facials focus on results, rather than relaxation, utilizing medical grade products and tools in a true medical office like Envision Aesthetics. That means more advanced, and frequently stronger, treatments. These facials are often employed in a series to achieve more dramatic results. If you do not desire laser treatments with downtime to address your concerns, a medical grade facial is a wonderful way to achieve the skin you have always wanted.

Back Facial

Not all types of facials are for your face. The technique for a back facial is almost identical to a facial for the face. However, a back facial exfoliates and gently scrubs the surface of the skin on your back. Plus it treats unsightly back acne, ingrown hairs, and uneven skin tone. A back facial relaxes and soothes as it provides a deep clean.

Gentleman’s Facial

A gentleman’s facial targets the deep layers of a man’s skin. Don’t worry, guys, this type of facial still gently exfoliates and hydrates the skin, while creating a fresh, clean finish. Men in Rochester and our surrounding region who want their skin to feel refreshed and clean, plus maintain a clear complexion, should check this facial out. 

Best Version of You

Are you ready for some you time? This facial takes about 1 hour, and is fully customized to address your concerns and needs. Every Best Version of You facial contains a pre-cleanse and cleanse, exfoliation, extractions if needed, soothing facial massage, then mask and specialty treatment as requested. Your facial finishes with SPF, to protect this best version of you!

Depending on which of the types of facials in Rochester you choose, the following procedures may be done as a stand-alone treatment, or as part of a larger regime of skin care.

Salt Facials

Have you noticed your complexion looks and feels congested or dull? Are you struggling with enlarged pores, acne, or chronic dryness? Envision Aesthetics offers a delicious remedy- the Salt Facial. It takes just three steps, covering an hour of your day, to uncover the best, healthiest skin of your life.

We begin by gently gliding the Salt Facial handpiece over the treatment area. This exfoliates your skin at the perfect angle and evenly removes the top layer of skin. We then pair ultrasound technology with customized serums to ensure the nutrients penetrate 2 times deeper into the skin. Finally we target pigmentation, inflammation, redness, vascular lesions, and acne with multi-wavelength LED light therapy. 

Chemical Peel

Another type of facial we offer involves a chemical peel. Think of it as taking away the old layer and replacing it with a newer, smoother one. During the process, visible signs of aging are targeted to reveal newer, more youthful looking skin. Once the peeling process is over, you’ll have skin that hasn’t been damaged by the sun or affected by aging. Removing that layer of skin can also help with scars and acne.

Cosmelan Peel

Melasma is a common skin condition where the skin appears discolored and marked by brown spots. Melasma can occur at any stage of life as a result of environmental and genetic factors. 

The Cosmelan melasma peel is an effective, noninvasive way to say goodbye to these unsightly brown patches. It uses a combination of skin-loving ingredients to reduce or eliminate melanic spots. The combination can include azelaic acid, kojic acid, phytic acid, retinyl palmitate, and salicylic acid. Cosmelan is hydroquinone-free.

Photofacial (IPL) 

A photofacial treatment delivers light energy into the skin to gradually reverse the underlying causes of some of the most common concerns. It doesn’t remove a significant amount of cells from the skin’s surface; rather, a photofacial treatment delivers energy into the deeper layers. 

Delivering light energy into the skin using this method can actually affect the genetic makeup of the skin’s cells and cause them to appear younger at a molecular level. Your skin generates new collagen and elastin fibers, helping to tighten and reduce the appearance of acne, sun damage, and other signs of aging.

You may hear “photofacial” referred to as: 

  • IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
  • BBL (BroadBand Light)
  • Forever Young Facial
  • Light therapy

BBL and IPL are uniquely different; we don’t recommend BBL treatment during the sunniest, hottest parts of the summer. 

Add-ons for our types of facials in Rochester

You can have a facial at Envision Aesthetics as a stand-alone procedure, or enjoy it complemented by other refreshing treatments. Some of the client favorites are listed below.

Aftercare treatment for facials in Rochester

In general, most of the types of facials at Envision have little to no down time. However, there are some things to consider that depend on the treatment, as well as your skin’s temperament. 

Your Envision medical expert will fill you in on the details of after care, ranging from absolutely no recovery time (just going out afterwards and enjoying the day or night!), to those deeper, more dramatic procedure choices that require a larger regimen of aftercare. Either way, we’ll always recommend the best healing and treatment longevity aftercare for you. Never hesitate to ask questions, get answers, and feel your best!

As part of aftercare and your day-to-day life, shop our cleansing, protective products, hand-chosen as the best in the business to help your skin heal, and keep it younger and fresher looking. Browse our full lines, or use our handy filters to zero in on the exact products for your needs.
