What is a Facial?
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 detoxifying facials, anti-aging 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 facial is to maintain soft, unblemished, well-hydrated skin.
Who Can Benefit From a Facial?
No matter how sensitive or hard to treat your skin is, you can still benefit from a facial. If you have sensitive skin, only gentle cleansing and moisturizing products will be used. If your goal is to clear up your acne, we can guide you toward a facial that will help you achieve that goal.
What Can I Expect During My Facial?
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, combination, sensitive, mature). Some facials involve light massaging of the face and neck to aid in further relaxation and to stimulate blood and oxygen flow to the skin.
