Facials are a great way to help maintain your natural glow, or to help you achieve the skin you have always wanted. A wide range of facial treatments are available to help address any concerns you may have to help you look and feel better.

A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger. Today, a facial is the second most popular spa treatment after a massage, and works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.

When having a facial it is important to be clear about how your skin reacts to products or to being touched. Facials usually begin with a cleansing and analysis of the skin under a bright light. How the aesthetician proceeds will depend on their diagnosis, but the process usually consists of:

  • Exfoliation
  • Extractions
  • Massage
  • Mask
  • Moisturizer

Your facial technician will be able to determine what products will be used during treatment and what sort of regimen should be followed after your appointment.
