We’re so happy to be featuring facials at our salon! Here are the steps we follow and the benefits of each step:
First, we CLEAN the skin. Because of the increased pollution in the environment, dirt, grime and sometimes chemicals, are left on the skin. In this step, pores are unclogged and free of excess sebum, dirt and other pollutants. Skin can now breathe, preventing blackheads and breakouts. The open pores also allow the products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Second, we ANALYZE the skin. This means that the esthetician is going to identify problem areas and categorize the skin, in order to determine what needs to be done and what products to use.
Next, EXFOLIATE the skin. Exfoliating is removing the dead skin, aiding the process of cellular renewal. Peels and microdermabrasion are used, usually stimulating collagen and elastin production.
Then, we FEED the skin. This step is for moisturizing and hydrating! The microcurrent tool used is noninvasive (will not harm healthy cells, blood vessels or tissues), and becomes a medium to further penetration. Deeper penetration = less fine lines & wrinkles = smoother & firmer!
Finally, CALM the skin. Calming the skin is achieved by using an LED light. It helps reduce inflammation, and is able to reduce various conditions, (ie. premature aging, hyperpigmentation and rosacea).
Keep these steps in mind and the resulting benefits of facials, to understand a little bit more about what’s going on. Take a look at our service menu, and read about the facials specials that we are currently offering!
