Facials deeply cleanse skin and may help fight certain skin problems, such as mild acne or dryness. The treatments leave faces glowing and are typically very relaxing, as they include a massage component.
What is a facial?
A basic facial is a skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. This multi-step process is meant to rejuvenate and nourish faces, making skin appear healthier and younger. It is also a popular spa treatment to pamper and relax, right up there with a massage.
What happens during a facial?
Each facial begins with a consultation that helps determine the right products for your skin type and concerns. Once that's been determined, the relaxing part begins! Most basic facials include some version of the following five steps:
Massage a cleanser into the face, neck, and décolletage to remove any traces of makeup and dirt. Using warm water paired with a facial sponge, cloth, or cotton pad, they remove the cleanser, dry faces, and evaluate skin. This step helps them determine what type of custom mask they will apply later.
Buff away dead skin cells with an exfoliating cream or scrub and/or open up pores with steam.
This process can be done to clear individual pores that have become clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, which can form blackheads and acne. It is not routinely included as part of our facials as not all of our therapists are trained in extractions, however this can be included for no additional cost, please advise at the time of booking if you would like this as part of your treatment.
A facial typically also includes a massage of the face—and often the upper body, too—that may be used to improve lymphatic drainage.
