A facial is one of the best ways to pamper your skin, especially when it’s given by an experienced beautician. Your skin will be left feeling refreshed, radiant and hydrated!
What is a Facial?
A facial involves the cleansing, exfoliating and nourishing of the skin on the face, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion.
The Basic Steps of a Facial Consultation.
A facial should always begin with a consultation. The therapist talk to you and ask you to fill out a form that has questions about your skin concerns, your diet, how much water you drink, any medication and supplements you take, and products you are currently using.
This can all influence the kind of treatments we recommend.
After wrapping your hair with a towel or headband, the we begin your facial with a thorough cleansing, using cotton pads, beautician wipes or sponges.
The therapist covers your eyes and looks at your skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp. The therapist is determining your basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, aging, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.) The beautician chooses the appropriate products and treatments, and consults with you about what he or she sees and recommends.
Ultrasonic Facial Treatment
During an ultrasonic facial, high level sound wave technology is used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration.
The process is safe, painless and gentle and is can even be used by sensitive skin types such as those with Rosacea.
