In her blog post, Couri Center’s Licensed Esthetician Ashley Gardewine unveils the secrets behind the transformative impact of monthly facials at the recently voted Winner of the 2023 Best Facial and Best Medical Spa.  She challenges the perception of facials as sporadic indulgences, positioning them as a consistent and essential component of a robust skincare routine. Ashley expertly highlights the diverse benefits, from addressing specific skin issues to the rejuvenating effects of deep cleansing and exfoliation. Beyond the visible improvements, she delves into the intangible realm, emphasizing the crucial role of the human touch in fostering relaxation and confidence. It's an empowering guide to achieving radiant, healthy skin through the art and science of monthly facial care.

Many women and men see facials as a treat- something they do for themselves once in a while to feel refreshed and brighten up their skin.  But getting a facial once a month is an excellent supplement to your skincare routine.  Like any part of your skincare regimen, facials are best when done consistently and regularly.  I tell my clients that one facial is never enough.  You don’t go to the gym one time and expect to walk out with abs. The same applies to your skincare, as well.  Monthly facials allow your skin to look and feel its best!

There are numerous benefits of monthly facials, both external and internal.  Here are a few reasons your skin will benefit from booking regular facials with me.  

Combat Skin Issues

Many people get facials because they have skin issues they want to improve, such as discoloration, acne, redness, inflammation, and dryness. Facials can be targeted to relieve, improve, and prevent these common skin concerns. Together, we will be able to create a custom facial experience.  With monthly facial treatments, you’ll begin to see improvements!

Cleanse and Exfoliate

One of the main reasons people get facials is to cleanse and exfoliate their skin deeply.  Removing dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin is a necessity for clear, healthy skin.  Receiving regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells and promotes new skin cell growth.  This typically results in reduced scarring and a more even skin tone.  

Improve and Maintain

Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin, monthly facials can improve your skin and maintain the results you’ve gotten from other procedures, such as peels, lasers, and microneedling. I always suggest facials before a big event, like your wedding day, but receiving them regularly ensures that your skin will be healthy for years to come, not just for one day.  


As you can see, facials provide many tangible benefits; like all those listed above, one of the intangible benefits of facials is feeling relaxed and at peace. Over my career, it has become clearer to me than ever– Human touch is a necessity. Touch signals a sense of safety and trust, creating a ripple effect by activating the body’s vagus nerve, releasing oxytocin, and decreasing cortisol while strengthening our immune system. As humans, touch is our first and most intimate sense and is crucial in helping us navigate the world, connect with others, and heal. It’s essential.

I love the difference in a person’s energy from when they first arrive to when they leave their treatment. You can see that shift in everything from their eyes to their posture.

Confidence Booster

When you look good, you feel good- it’s that simple. Because facials can alleviate common skin issues, your skin will look its best, so you can feel your best.
