What is a facial?

A facial treatment is a beauty treatment done to exfoliate, rejuvenate and treat the skin. One of the more popular treatments is an extraction facial to help patients suffering from and minimize the appearance of clogged pores. Not only does this treatment help to cleanse your skin to have it feeling brand-new, but the session also comes with a face mask to cool your skin after the intense procedure and a massage to top it all off!

The 4-step approach

The first step to any facial treatment is the consultation process. This is categorized as the most important process as the esthetician is able to examine your skin and provide recommendations on the appropriate treatments and products your skin requires.

Most facial treatments include the following 4 steps:

  • Cleansing

The application of a cleanser allows the removal of makeup or dirt from your skin and also ascertains your true skin texture so as to determine the best face mask to treat your skin.

  • Exfoliation

Exfoliating your skin allows the removal of dead skin cells occupying the top layer of your skin to promote cell regeneration, as well as better penetration of the products applied.

  • Extraction

The main aim of extraction is to unclog your pores by opening it up for easy removal of dirt and oil.

  • Masking

The essence of masking is to salvage the problems of oily and dry skin texture.

The benefits of a facial

Getting facial treatment is a great way to attain radiance and reveal a healthy glow. However, this takes time, and with frequent visits – your skin troubles will improve.

Important to note is that basic facial treatment cannot offer a solution to fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation – as these require a more comprehensive treatment plan to resolve. 

While there may be some side effects present such as slight swelling and redness after your facial, this usually subsides within a day or two.

Facial treatments are notorious for being pricey, as it is often a customized treatment that requires expertise, and is tailored to your specific needs and requests. If you are on the lookout for a great deal – great news! Contact us to enquire about our latest facial promotion just for you!
