A facial is a popular spa treatment used to clean and exfoliate the skin. There are many different types of facials, and they can offer many benefits.
Getting a facial is relaxing. At Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville, we make the experience of getting a facial as pleasurable for the client as possible by providing a peaceful and calm ambience. We want to make you feel pampered.
Facials cleanse the skin. No matter how carefully someone washes themselves, they are still exposed to pollution, dirt and other toxins that can clog the pores and otherwise damage the skin. A facial will often involve treatments that can open the pores and deep clean the skin. It can also exfoliate the skin and reduce oils that can cause acne.
A facial treatment can stimulate circulation to the skin that increases blood flow to skin cells. The increased blood flow provides skin with more oxygen, water and nutrients and keeps it from getting dried and wrinkled. It also encourages the growth of new skin cells and thus gives the client a more youthful and healthy look.
What Happens During a Facial?
We begin with a consultation, during which we will discuss the client’s skin care regime and other matters that affect the condition of their skin. Knowing all of this information will help the specialist recommend possible facial treatments.
The details of a facial treatment will depend on which facial is being performed. However, during every facial treatment, the esthetician will clean the client’s face. Some facials will also apply steam to the client’s face. The steam both relaxes the client and opens the skin’s pores to make extracting blackheads and/or whiteheads easier. During our Squeaky Clean facial, our esthetician will carefully extract blackheads and whiteheads.
Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. There are many methods of exfoliating, and they might be performed at different times. Mechanical exfoliants are abrasive particles used to rub off the dead skin cells.
Steam is usually used during mechanical exfoliation. In chemical exfoliation, the esthetician uses a solution to loosen the bond between the outermost skin cells and the ones beneath them. Chemical exfoliations may or may not be accompanied by steam.
After the exfoliation, the esthetician may massage the client’s face and stimulate their circulation. They may also apply a facial mask designed for the client’s skin type, be it oily, dry or mixed. After removing the mask, the esthetician can apply various serums or moisturizers to hydrate the skin. At the end, they may advise the client on how to improve their skin care regimen.
