European facials employ traditional techniques for revitalizing the skin and restoring a glowing, healthy appearance. Your skin will be cleansed and analyzed to determine which particular treatments and methods will be best suited to your individual needs. The skin is then typically steamed, any impurities are extracted and an exfoliant is used to remove dead skin cells. Circulation will be enhanced through massage techniques and a mask may be applied to balance the skin, followed up with a moisturizer to meet the needs of your skin type.
Deep Pore Facials
Deep pore facials are sometimes referred to as acne facials. That said, a deep pore facial goes beyond the management of this common skin condition. During a deep pore facial, your provider cleanses your skin to prepare it for deeper work. A warm towel or steam may be used to soften the skin, open the pores, and generally make it easier to remove debris. The provider may also exfoliate the skin to remove surface impurities. The crux of the deep pore facial is the extraction of oil, dirt, and other substances from the pores. Extractions are done using a special instrument and very gentle technique. To conclude the deep pore facial, your provider may perform a gentle facial massage, mask, or both. After this treatment, your skin may appear smoother and more radiant due to reduced pore size.
Anti Aging Facials
If you are in your twenties or older, you have aging skin. Therefore, you could benefit from an anti-aging facial that is customized to your unique skin type and needs. Anti-aging facials are complementary to good sun protection and skincare at home because they provide deeper cleansing, exfoliation, and personalized nutrient delivery. These facials are designed to counteract the damaging effects of sun exposure, biological stress, and environmental stressors on the skin. They do so via the use of collagen creams, vitamin-infused serums, special massage techniques, and more.
Are Facials Necessary?
From our perspective, facials are absolutely necessary. This is true whether you are a young adult who has yet to notice the signs of aging and sun damage or you are an older adult who has. Regular facials are intended for maintenance as well as correction when needed. Think of professional facials along the same lines as your regular workouts. You exercise and eat right to keep your body healthy and fit. Facials keep your skin healthy and fit. Many people are not aware of the timing of the aging process. Around age 22, the body begins to chronologically slow down. This means there is less collagen, elastin, and other nourishing chemicals naturally flowing to the skin; but, environmental stressors do not go away just because our skin is not as well-supported as it used to be. Facials, performed as often as every month, keep your skin in the most resilient state possible without aggressive energies or surgery.
Do I Wash My Face After a Facial?
Your facial provides intensely deep cleaning, as well as hydrating and nourishing, so there is no need to wash your face until the day after your appointment. Showering and washing your face too soon after a facial could diminish the effects of the proprietary ingredients your provider applies to your skin after cleansing, exfoliating, and removing impurities from your pores.
What Should I Do to Prepare for a Facial?
There isn't much to do to prepare for an effective, luxurious facial. When you book your appointment, you might let your provider know the concerns that you would like to address. During the week prior to your visit, you should avoid tanning and excessive sun exposure. It is also beneficial to stay well-hydrated. Finally, we want your skin to be ready for deep cleansing and nourishment, so we suggest that you avoid harsh skin treatments like waxing or chemical treatments designed for home use. If you have questions as the time for your facial nears, please don't hesitate to contact us.
