Facials

What are facials?

Facials are a popular spa treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and moisturizes the skin. Your facial should begin with a consultation, where you can tell your esthetician about any concerns. They may also ask you about any medical conditions, skin problems, your skin routine, diet and water intake, etc. You will be offered some type of body wrap or robe and then lie on a facial bed. The esthetician will wrap your hair with a towel or headband and then begin the facial by cleansing your skin.

 

What happens next?

Once your skin is clean and make up has been removed, she will analyze your skin. Based on your skin type, she will choose products and treatments in consultation with you. The next steps vary depending on the type of facial. They can involve a steam treatment, which uses a machine to direct warm steam toward your face. Some people choose to have extraction, which is the removal of blackheads and whiteheads. However, this can be painful or harmful to sensitive skin. Facials also feature various methods of exfoliation. This can involve a gentle facial scrub, an enzyme treatment, or a chemical peel.

 

What else?

Facials also involve massaging of the face and the application of a facial mask. Some extras during a facial may include a scalp massage, foot massage, or light therapy. They end with application of moisturizers and sunscreen. Most facials last about an hour, but length varies according to treatments. For best results, estheticians recommend clients receive facial treatments once a month if possible, or four times a year. Facials pair well with other spa treatments, such as a massage, body wrap, or manicure and pedicure.

 

Benefits?

Facials have many benefits. Beyond providing a relaxing experience, facials should have a positive effect on skin.

  • Clean the skin
  • Remove blackheads and whiteheads
  • Exfoliate
  • Hydrate
  • Moisturize

 

Facials can help improve dry skin, especially in winter, and oily skin in the summer. Regular treatments can help promote healthy skin care habits that lead to fewer breakouts and firmer, younger looking skin.

 

Added Value?

Certain treatments can also help improve skin tone or reduce wrinkles. (However, facials cannot treat severe skin issues, and estheticians may suggest you seek a dermatologist in these cases.) Estheticians can also give you more information about your skin type and recommend products to use at home. Using the proper daily cleanser and moisturizer can help you maintain the results of your facial longer.
