What is a Facial?
A skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face.
Facials might sound like a luxury, but they do offer many medical benefits for your skin. You’ll see a transformation in how your skin looks and feels after these facial steps:
- Utilizing the art of extractions (to clean the pores)
- Massaging (to relax and detox)
- Applying specialized masks to hydrate and soothe the skin
People with specific skin concerns can benefit greatly from facials. By cleaning out clogged pores, products applied to the skin can better penetrate. In the case of acne, for example, the ability for the product to better reach into the skin decreases the chance of bacterial overgrowth.
Facials may also include the use of chemical peels, customized to accomplish your goals.
So, go ahead and give yourself some medical “pampering.” We will prepare a facial tailored to your skin's specific condition and challenges.
