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.
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.
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.
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.
