What is a Facial?
Our spa facial treatments use organic botanical products for the face, neck, and upper shoulders that creates a naturally beautiful skin. Although you may find many different types of facials at Impeccable Visage skin care clinic they all are designed to deep cleanse the skin and provide beneficial vitamins and nutrients for the skin to prevent premature aging and create a healthy glow. What to expect during a Basic Facial Treatment?
Overall the professional spa facial service is a very relaxing beautifying treatment. Many people feel so relaxed they may even fall asleep. Before you get comfortable in your spa gown you will be asked to fill out a brief health questionnaire to give your Aesthetician important information about your general health. It is important to tell your aesthetician about any allergies you may have or medications you are currently taking that may increase skin sensitivities. Then the actual facial begins with a thorough cleansing, skin analysis, exfoliation, extractions, massage, mask, and moisturizer to complete the Service. It may sound like a lot but each step is necessary to achieve optimal skin health. We use only skin care products specially created for a variety of skin types to give you the best results. Most facials take one hour to complete.
Listed below are more details of the facial treatments offered at Impeccable Visage.
The first step in the facial is a complete and thorough cleansing of the face, neck, and upper shoulders using a botanical facial cleanser that is gentle enough not to disturb the acid mantle yet strong enough to lift off any excess oil, dirt, or makeup on the skin. Leaving the face feeling fresh and clean.
The second facial step is a skin analysis where the aesthetician will cover your eyes with cotton pads to examine the skin with a magnifying lamp to get a close look at your skin to determine the skin type, texture, and tone of your skin as well as any conditions that would indicate some sensitivities. If you have an oilier skin the appearance of blackheads may be visible and noted for extraction.
Exfoliation is the facial treatment process of deep pore cleansing. It can be achieved in two ways, mechanically with an abrasive yet gentle “scrub” or chemically with the use of enzymes. Natural fruit and nut enzymes are the catalysts that basically eat away dead skin cells on the surface leaving the skin fresh and opening pores for extraction. The ultimate chemical exfoliation/peel available are Alpha- hydroxy- acids. AHA’s are also available for those who want maximum exfoliation to lighten hyperpigmentation and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
For those who have dry or mature skin extractions may not be necessary. This is the process of flushing out any dirt, oil, and debris from the pores, allowing the element of oxygen into the skin necessary for healthy skin. The extraction process may feel a little uncomfortable for the client as it is done by applying pressure to the areas that are congested. Please know that your aesthetician can adjust the pressure for your comfort.
The most enjoyed part of the facial is the facial massage, not only is it very relaxing but it also is great for the circulation and purification of the skin. There are many lymph nodes located around the face, neck, and shoulders that are the body’s waste eliminative system that helps to maintain a healthy immune system. A refreshing glass of water is provided after the service to help filter out toxins.
A custom selected facial mask rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals is brushed onto the skin to “feed” the skin proper nutrients for the healthy glowing skin. Anti-aging masks are also available for mature skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
After the mask has properly nourished the skin, a facial moisturizer is selected to hydrate and protect your beautiful hydrated skin.
After your skin care treatment is complete your skin therapist can offer you beneficial products for home care to maintain the glowing health and beauty of your skin. Follow-up treatments are recommended every six weeks for maintaining a beautiful complexion.
