With age, the skin begins to go through many changes, like losing its elasticity and developing fine lines and wrinkles. While each spa has treatment protocols, certain features are common in most Luxurious Facial treatments. Indeed, this certainly helps improve the appearance of any skin woes and is meant to cleanse, improve, pamper, and relax the skin.
However, different spas may have contrasting methods. In that case, below are 10 essential steps of a luxurious facial:
The aesthetician will begin the facial by removing any makeup. Once the skin is bare, the aesthetician will massage cleansing milk or cream, gel or lotion into the face, neck, and décolleté. The aesthetician will use facial sponges, cloths, or cotton pads to remove the cleanser with warm water and pat the skin dry.
The eyes will be covered with moistened pads for the next step. Using a lighted magnifying glass, the provider will evaluate the skin. A slight pinch to the skin may be done to check for elasticity or press on it to check thickness. Through check-ups, the aesthetician may discuss the findings and ask about the skincare regimen and the expectations for the facial.
Now that the aesthetician understands the client’s skincare needs, it will be followed by selecting exfoliation cream, gel, mask, gommage, or peel. There are certain exfoliation products, such as enzyme peels, that require the product to be left on the face to dissolve the toxins that cause blackheads. In addition, there are other products that require either manual or machine stimulation.
Steam will be applied to the face during that phase or after the product has been removed, depending upon the exfoliation product used. There are some spas that may use heated, moist towels instead of steam. The moist heat loosens plugs and encourages the skin to sweat out any impurities caught in pores.
The aesthetician will remove blackheads and whiteheads during the extraction phase. Usually, they will use a lighted magnifying glass to examine the skin. The aesthetician may use a blackhead extractor, a stainless steel instrument that allows blackheads to be gently expressed. Some aestheticians wrap their fingers with cotton to protect the skin while manually expressing the plugs.

Facial massage stimulates and lubricates the skin. The aesthetician may use massage oil or lotion during this process. Depending upon the training and the treatment, they may massage the neck, shoulders, décolleté, and scalp. In fact, the client may notice that the sinuses may feel deeply relaxed and feel more apparent after the massage.

Depending upon the skin’s needs, the aesthetician will choose a mask for the client. If the skin is oily, the provider may choose a clay-based mask to draw off the excessive sebum. If the skin is dehydrated, they’ll pick one that replenishes moisture.
In addition, masks are highly specific and are formulated to treat specific skincare needs.

8. More Massage
For the 10 minutes or so that the mask has been worn, the aesthetician may perform a massage on the hands and arms, feet and calves, and scalp.
After the mask is removed, the aesthetician will likely apply a specialty serum to the skin. However, some spas charge extra for this step, while others include it as part of the facial. Serums include aging skin, blemished skin, and sensitive skin.
10. Final Touches
Before the provider sends out the patient, they will apply a skin-specific cream or gel to the skin. They may also use an eye gel and lip.
Given these steps, one professional spa treatment called HydraFacial fits the description of a luxurious facial, which uses patented six-step technology to cleanse, extract, exfoliate, stimulate and detoxify the skin. It is a rejuvenating, elevated facial with visible results in restoring brightness and improving overall skin tone and texture. A HydraFacial can also help alleviate redness, acne and reduce fine lines and wrinkles or pigmentation.
