If you’ve never experienced a facial and are thinking of giving it a try–either to prepare for a big event, treat your skin to some TLC, or simply to enjoy some relaxation–keep reading to learn about facials and what to expect during your first one.
What should I expect?
Before your treatment starts, your facialist will ask you about your skin and if you have any concerns that may affect your skin’s health or the results from your facial. Specific skin concerns like wrinkles, dark spots, or acne can be treated and targeted with well-chosen products and even your overall skincare plan. A facial generally consists of a cleanse, exfoliation, steam (with warm towels or a steam machine), massage, and a treatment mask. Often, you can choose to add on additional services or customize your facial, such as with the Fire and Iced Facial.
How should I prepare?
Ultimately, you should come prepared to relax and let your cares drift away. If you have very long hair, you may want to bring a hair tie or scrunchie so you can tie your hair back. Some clients choose to remove their makeup beforehand. But, generally, we can assist with both of those. You should plan to leave your phone on silent and out of reach so you can focus on being pampered!
Will it hurt?
You shouldn’t feel pain during a facial. We love facials, and they’re very popular because they’re so relaxing. Your provider will ask if you would like extractions, which may be a little less relaxing than the rest of your treatment. Extractions don’t take much time, and they leave you looking more radiant than ever. Generally, there is no discomfort associated with extractions and you’ll be looking forward to your next facial the moment you leave the building.
How often should I get a facial?
We recommend facials about once a month to keep your skin healthy and clear of pore-clogging pollutants. You can choose to have a facial as often as you would like, in most cases. Please let us know if you’ve had treatments like chemical peels or laser treatments that may affect the delicate surface of the skin. Let us know what you’ve had and we can help you time your facial just right.
