Seems like a simple question, but not a lot of people know what steps should be included. Any service of an hour or more should include the following steps:
Yes. We should know if you are currently under a dermatologist or any doctor's care, what medications you are currently taking and if you have any allergies. These three things can drastically alter the type of treatment you will receive and products that will be used. On your first visit, you should be given a questionnaire to complete; however, with each return visit, you should make sure you inform the esthetician of any changes.
A lot of clients think they need to wash their face, but it is better for the esthetician to feel the type of oil production that your skin has naturally. Make-up is easily removed; however, wearing multiple coats of mascara or waterproof eyeliner, if you know you will be receiving a facial, is not recommended.
The typical extensive facial generally lasts about 20-45 minutes.
No one can tell you that you absolutely will not have a breakout after your appointment. If you are concerned or had a bad experience, let the esthetician know before she/he begins. It is important to be specific, though. Most of the time, you will not have any issues and leave with skin that is glowing and healthy. However, if you do have a breakout, it shouldn't be more than a blemish or two. If you develop multiple breakout areas or blemishes in areas that you usually don't get them, let the esthetician know so adjustments can be made.
Absolutely, although you should let your esthetician know so the following can be avoided: • Products with large amounts of anti-acne and anti-aging products • Vigorous massage, especially on the hands and feet. These things are very stimulating and should be avoided, especially during the first trimester. If you are an "at risk" pregnancy or have any concerns, definitely speak with your doctor about it before booking the appointment.
Absolutely! Facials are very beneficial for men too, and can help reduce skin sensitivity from shaving as well as other concerns from lack of proper at home skincare. If you do suffer from sensitivity after shaving, it is recommended that you do not shave immediately before your facial, as this can lead to further irritation.
Once monthly facials are recommended to help aid in the cell turnover process which happens approximately every 30 days. As we age, this cell turnover process slows down, contributing to dull sallow looking skin, fine lines, wrinkles, blackheads, congestion, and coarsely textured skin. Monthly facials assist your body in doing more efficiently what it is"supposed" to do on its own.
