What exactly is a facial spa treatment?

A facial treatment beautifies the skin by cleansing facial pores, exfoliating dead skin cells and hydrating the skin. Facial treatments are specifically designed to boost your skin and restore your skin's overall health. Almost all treatments include a deep cleaning cycle combined with exfoliation. The products and tools used depend on the type of facial you are receiving.

Benefits of spa treatments

It relieves distress

Several studies show that when the facial muscles are gently massaged activates your sympathetic nervous system. This reduces anxiety and uplifts your mood considerably. Few people know that your face has several pressure points to which the body responds. A beautician massages these points to improve overall health.

It cleanses your skin

A professional will thoroughly cleanse your facial skin with top of the range skincare serums. Which will cleanse your skin on a deeper level. Beauticians understand different skin types and have the experience to improve your facial skin problems.

Treats acne and skin blemishes

Another major benefit of receiving a professional treatment is that you will notice a visible difference in the health of your skin after your treatment. Because these beauticians work with several skin types. They know how to treat each individual accordingly to restore a natural balance in your skin.

It prevents signs of ageing

Naturally, as you age, your skin ages too. Taking care of yourself should be a priority. That's why proper skin care is a necessity. A facial treatment at a spa will boost cell regeneration and improve your collagen production. This will take care of age spots and wrinkles, giving you a youthful appearance.

Expert advice

Because beauticians study several aspects of skincare, they are very knowledgeable about skincare routines. When you receive a treatment from a professional, you are free to ask any questions that you might have. They will give you advice on what products to use, how to use them and when to use them.

Here's what you can expect from your first facial treatment

Skin consultation & facial cleanse

Before the treatment starts, the therapist will ask you if there is anything they should know about your skin. Perhaps you had certain issues with your skin in the past, which is a good thing to tell the therapist before the treatment starts. They will also inspect your face to get a close-up look of your skin to determine the current condition of your skin.

The therapist might ask you about your lifestyle or skincare routine before the facial cleanse starts. Once the inspection is done, the beautician will gently massage your skin with a cleanser which will be removed with a warm facial sponge or cotton pad.

Facial exfoliation

At this stage, the therapist will pat your skin dry. She will then apply a suitable exfoliation to remove any impurities and loosen your facial skin pores. During the treatment, your therapist will either use an exfoliation brush or use her hands to gently remove any remaining dead skin cells.

Facial steam

After your exfoliation, your face will be covered with a hot towel. The heat loosens your pores and flushes impurities via your sweat ducts.


During this phase of the treatment, the therapist will remove any blackheads or whiteheads from your skin. Once the impurities have been extracted, your face will be cleansed again. Impurities are removed by using an instrument that allows for easy removal of sebum which is the oily substance that your body produces.


Now the fun part starts. After receiving the extraction, the therapist will gently massage your face. Your blood flow improves by massaging the facial muscles, which serves as a self-lubricant for your skin. You can sit back and relax as the therapist massages your neck and scalp to finish off.

Applying a mask

The therapist will choose a facial mask based on your skin which will be applied to your face. You will then be left to relax in peace while the mask works its magic. Take this time to clear your mind and enjoy the pamper sessions.

Serum application

In the last step, your mask will be washed from your skin, followed by the therapist applying a specialised serum to combat the signs of ageing. Leaving you with a healthier and youthful appearance.
