A facial is a family of skin care treatments for the face, including steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, and massage. They are normally performed in beauty salons, but are also a common spa treatment.
There are a number of different types of Facial:
Vitamin C Facial
Spas offer Vitamin C facials with the promise of restoring facial skin texture and firmness, as well as improving the skin tone. Vitamin C facials are believed to have antioxidants which leave your skin radiant and visibly improved.
This spa treatment uses a combination of purified oxygen, essential oils, and mild acids which are gently sprayed upon your face. Spas offering oxygen facials cite a number of anti-aging benefits you'll get from by increasing your skin's oxygen consumption. Benefits include wrinkle reduction, improved circulation, softening of tight skin, and a reduction in adult acne.
As collagen in the skin tissue breaks down with age, creases, expression lines, and wrinkles begin to appear. The collagen facial applies pure plant collagen to your skin to make up for the collagen you've lost. This facial is meant to hydrate the skin and tighten sallow skin, and though it does not replace your lost collagen (this takes a collagen injection, laser treatment, or a facial filler) some people think it gives them instant skin texture improvement.
Deep Sea Facial
Deep Sea minerals and enzymes are used in a detoxifying mask. The mask is a thick, hard crust which is meant to cleanse pores, firm-up the skin, and improve circulation.
These types of facial are any one of numerous skin therapies for aging, dry skin. Spas often use clinical strength glycolic acid peels to exfoliate and stimulate surface skin repair of fine lines and age spots. A medical spa or dermatologist will offer more intensive solutions like a non-invasive IPL treatment. IPL stimulates collagen which fills in wrinkles and facial lines. Note that IPL is not pain free.
Purifying Facial/ Deep Cleansing Facial
Many spas use fruit peels, like papaya, cranberries or green peel, to give a deep exfoliation which softens clogged pores and acne blackheads and makes your skin glow.
Not only are facials necessary for maintaining healthy skin, they are also a wonderful way to relax.
A facial is a therapeutic method offered by a spa to improve your skin tone and texture. Facials are believed to increase blood flow, cell turnover and exfoliate dead skin cells.
Used for enhancing the lips and improving the overall shape of the face, wrinkles and deep-set folds all over the face and chin can also be improved.
Chemical skin peels are non-invasive procedures that can rejuvenate the appearance of the skin and result in a youthful glow, making it a popular cosmetic treatment.
Dermaroller treatment can be used to improve the appearance of ageing skin, sun damage, acne scars, stretch marks and wrinkles on the face and body.
A hydrafacial is a multi-step treatment that replenishes the skin with vital nutrients such as peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid.
When undergoing a laser skin resurfacing treatment, the damaged outer layers of your skin are removed. This triggers the body’s natural healing processes and encourages fresh, bright new skin to grow in its place.
Medical micro-dermabrasion is an effective but non-invasive and non-surgical form of skin resurfacing, also known as skin peeling.
