At this time we are not allowed to offer facial due to Covid 19. For more information please contact us.
A facial is a professional cleansing, purifying, and beautifying treatment of the skin on the face and neck. There are several variations of facials, including mini facials, detoxifying facials, antiaging facials, facials that highlight special ingredients, like herbs or antioxidants, moisturizing facials, pore-refining facials, aromatherapy facials, and many more. A typical facial deeply cleanses and freshens the skin by exfoliating away dead skin cells. The objective of a classic European facial is to maintain soft, unblemished, well-hydrated skin.
No matter how sensitive or hard to treat your skin is, you can still benefit from a facial because any facial can be suited to fit your individual skin care needs. If you have sensitive skin, only gentle cleansing and moisturizing products will be used. If your goal is to clear up your acne, your cosmetologist can guide you towards a facial that will help you achieve that goal. Be sure to communicate clearly with your skin care professional exactly what you want to get out of your facial, so she can do her best to accommodate you.
Come to your facial appointment on time and as relaxed as possible. You can come to the treatment room with a clean face or allow your skin care professional to remove your makeup for you.
Though there are many types of facials available at spas today, a basic facial might include the following steps. Cleansing, skin analysis, exfoliation, massage, extraction of blackheads and other impurities, and application of products targeted to your skin type (dry, oily, mixed, sensitive, mature). Facials involve light massaging of the face and neck to aid in further relaxation and to stimulate blood and oxygen flow to the skin.
When you leave a spa after a facial, your skin will most likely be glowing, fresh, and hydrated. However, if your facial included several extractions, you might experience some redness or tenderness in the areas that were worked on. Some facials might also increase breakouts for a short period afterward, since the skin was stimulated and is now ridding itself of toxins and impurities. Keep in mind that the more facials you get, the less impurities your skin will contain, which means you will experience fewer breakouts as time goes on. Check with your esthetician to find out how to best care for your skin type after a facial. For instance, if you have dry skin, use an intensive night cream or moisturizing mask to keep up the hydrating effects of your facial.
Your skin care treatments should be provided by a properly trained professional. Don’t hesitate to ask your skin care therapist about her background, training, and experience especially as it relates to the treatment you are considering. A skin care professional’s emphasize that each client’s skin is as unique as the individual beneath it, and that skin type can change depending on lifestyle, medications, allergies, or diet.
