When I am preforming facials, I am always asked this question. I thought it would be beneficial to answer this question here. Facials are a wonderful way to pamper yourself. As for how often should you have a facial done. As you can see below I think once a month is a great way to keep your skin looking its best. It is truly dependent on the skin type .. problematic skin eg. acne it is recommended 3-4 weeks but again it is up to the Esthetician's recommendation on what they feel would help the client. Everyone's skin type and other factors are so different, you cannot generalize in my opinion. You also need to have a home care regime to keep up.. doing a facial once a month or once and a while will not give you the results you are looking for in my opinion.
