So many of us look forward to our regular facials. A facial is one of life’s little luxuries that helps us relax. And, we get the bonus of boosting the health and radiance of our skin. Though we know and love them well, there’s a first time for everyone. And you may not know what to expect. If you’ve never had a facial and are thinking of taking the plunge–maybe to prepare for a wedding, treat your skin to some TLC, or relax for a while–keep reading to learn about facials and what to expect during your treatment.
What should I expect?
Before your treatment, your facialist will ask you about your skin and if you have any concerns. Specific concerns like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or acne can be targeted with the right products and techniques. A facial generally consists of a cleanse, exfoliation, steam (with towels or a steam machine), massage, and a treatment mask. You may choose to add on additional features like a scalp or neck massage.
How should I prepare?
Come prepared to relax. If you have very long hair, you may want to bring a hair tie or scrunchie. You may also choose to remove your makeup before your facial, especially if you have a favorite cleanser. If not, we can assist with both of those. It is common that we help remove any makeup before your facial begins, to ensure your face is clean and ready for pampering.
How often should I get a facial?
We recommend to most people that they receive a facial about once a month to keep their skin clear, clean, and in optimal health. You can choose to have a facial as often as you would like, though please let us know when you’ve had other treatments such as chemical peels or laser treatments that may affect the optimal timing of your facial. Some treatments may require that you avoid steam or heat for a few weeks.
