All facials are pampering…but don’t mistake all facials for just fluff!A professional facial can actually change your skin and reduce acne, reduce wrinkles and slow down the aging process giving you a gorgeous, healthy glow. Your aesthetician can treat various skin problems on the face, neck and décolleté with a facial designed for your skin type.  There are obviously steps that you need to take on a daily basis to maintain the health of our skin including eating a balanced diet, staying hydrated, getting adequate sleep and daily exercise, refraining from smoking, and wearing a good protective sunscreen to prevent sun damage. And if you take these steps along with maintenance professional facials aging can be very graceful!You should visit your aesthetician every 4-6 weeks for a professional facial to target skin issues specific to you such as uneven skin tone, rough texture, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles.Facials will encourage hydration, exfoliate dead skin, decrease impurities and even skin tone and texture. There are seven essential steps to a facial:

  • Cleanse:  After your aesthetician analyzes and addresses your skin type she will prep your skin with a double cleanse to create a clean canvas.

  • Exfoliate:  Next, steam will be used to open up the pores.A treatment is then applied to the skin that will exfoliate, release congestion and clarify and brighten the skin. This may be an Enzyme treatment, Vitamin C or a Glycolic Acid, depending on your skin type.Acids help aid in exfoliation…which is key to glowing skin.Exfoliating the top layer of skin helps to reveal younger skin, as new skin cells are created in the dermis.Your aesthetician may choose microdermabrasion as an add-on exfoliating treatment for you to stimulate collagen and slough off the top layer of the skin.This treatment blasts tiny crystals onto your skin to exfoliate, reduce fine lines and lighten skin discolorations.

  • Extractions:  Extractions are then made if needed to rid your pores of any impurities and eliminate harmful bacteria which can cause acne.

  • Massage:   Your aesthetician will give you a heavenly facial massage and / or acupressure which stimulates your skin, encouraging blood flow and lymphatic drainage.

  • Mask:  A mask is applied to the skin which will stay on for approximately 10 minutes.Depending on your skin type, your aesthetician will choose from a hydrating mask, clay based pore-minimizing and tightening mask, or a soothing mask to reduce redness.During this time, your aesthetician may wrap your hands in paraffin and massage your arms and neck.

  • Special Add-ons:  Your aesthetician may choose to use high frequency or LED lights for additional benefits.High frequency and blue LED lights can reduce bacteria for acneic skin and red LED lights can encourage collagen stimulation in the skin and reduce redness.

  • Hydration:  A moisturizer for your skin type, ultra rich and hydrating or light and soothing will be applied and a sunblock will be added as a finishing touch.

As you walk away from your facial, you can expect smoother skin with tighter pores and a youthful glow.Facials on a consistent basis will help you grow old ever so gracefully!
