A skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns. This multi-step process is meant to rejuvenate and nourish faces, making skin appear healthier and younger.
What to expect from treatments?
Aestheticians massage a cleanser into the face, neck, and décolletage to remove any traces of makeup and dirt. Using warm water paired with a facial sponge, cloth, or cotton pad, they remove the cleanser, dry faces, and evaluate skin. This step helps them determine what type of custom mask they will apply later.
Dead skin cells will be buffed away using an exfoliating cream or scrub.
This process is done to clear individual pores that have become clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, which can form blackheads and acne. The extractions can be done by hand or with a metal tool.
A facial typically also includes a massage of the face—and often the upper body, too—that may be used to improve lymphatic drainage.
5. Masks and More
A custom mask will be applied, perhaps a clay-based one to treat oiliness or a hydrating one to combat dryness. The facial concludes with a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen if it's daytime.
