You can get the same results at homeWell, almost. Snyder points out, "Human touch is extremely healing, so there's nothing like having a good esthetician work on you." But, she also concedes, with the right tools and guidance you can do an at-home facial and get great results.
She says that while most of her clients come in every four to eight weeks, others only come in every few months or even once a year. They can get away with this by doing things right at home.

Fresh blood flow to the skin is what nourishes the cells and maintains a healthy [cell] turnover."
