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 mini facials, 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 European facial is

to maintain soft, unblemished, well-hydrated skin.

Facials and Peels


Some General Info.

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). 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.

Results & Recovery

When you leave a spa after a facial your skin will 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.  This is normal. 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 aestheticism to find out how to best care for your skin type after a facial. For instance, an intensive night cream or moisturizing mask to keep up the hydrating effects of your facial is a solution for dry skin while a Vitamin A serum is an approach for oily or aging skin.
