These luxurious treatments can be an excellent way to correct specific skin problems, maintain a beautiful, youthful looking appearance, or fight back against the signs of aging.

Facials are one of the first treatments that people think of when they think of relaxing and effective spa treatments. They work best when they’re part of a successful, well-balanced routine skincare regimen. Facials can be an excellent and soothing way to maintain clear, healthy skin.
Most facial treatments involve a similar series of steps, with each step being adjusted slightly to best meet each patient’s skincare needs. The vast majority of these treatments begin with a skincare consultation, during which the patient discusses both the current condition of their skin as well as their overall treatment goals with their esthetician. It’s important that patients also disclose the products that they use on a regular basis during this stage of the consultation.
Once the consultation is complete, the esthetician begins to cleanse the patient’s skin. This helps remove any makeup and debris from the skin’s surface. The esthetician will then examine the patient’s face closely to determine if they have dry, oily, combination, sensitive, or normal skin. The esthetician slightly adjusts each patient’s facial to work well with their unique skin type.
Following these steps, each facial typically includes a process of exfoliation, extraction of blackheads and whiteheads, massage, and mask application.
While every facial is a little different, some common benefits are experienced after treatment. These include:
- Deep cleansing. Dirt, dead skin cells, and other impurities can accumulate in a way that daily cleansing can’t eliminate. Facials remove this debris, leaving your skin cleansed and exfoliated.
- Improved circulation. Facials can help increase blood flow to the face and neck, restoring a healthy, natural-looking glow to the patient’s appearance.
- Anti-aging. Facials can help subtly improve many of the most common signs of aging, leaving patients looking rejuvenated and refreshed.
- Relaxation. Facials can be an excellent way to relax, unwind, and de-stress.
