What to Expect
Before your treatment begins, our Skincare expert will consult with you to determine your skin type and any special needs or concerns, including allergies and medications. Next, the esthetician will talk to you about what you are trying to achieve in your session. This information is used to create the best treatment, tailored to your specific needs.
Benefits of Customized Facial
All Skin Concerns Covered
If you have acne, then your facial is going to be very different from someone who’s main concern is anti-ageing. Using a product that helps someone with acne can actually damage someone else’s skin if they are not experiencing the same problems. This is why customized facials are so important. They target the exact issues that you have, and so nothing that will harm your skin type will end up in the facial. An excellent example of this is a facial for someone who has rosacea. The products used in this facial would need to be very gentle and would be missing things is necessary for a facial focused on acne treatment or blackhead removal.
Sometimes, facials that are targeted to all skin types end up being too gentle. Rather than doing anything at all, they are inherently relaxing face massages that do not end up targeting any issues that you have. While relaxing face massage is part of an excellent facial, as it helps to increase blood flow which brings more oxygen to the area and can help fight signs of ageing, it should not be the only part of a facial. While certain skin types and conditions demand gentle cleansers, they are too gentle for other skin types and are wasted on them.
When you get a standard facial, you are not learning what tips, tricks, and products will work for you and your skin type. There will still be some benefit, but you will not have the opportunity to learn anything or find products that are made for you. With a custom facial, your spa specialist will teach you about products and treatments that will help you with your particular needs. Education is an essential part of skincare. You do not want to be using products that do nothing to help your skin or that harm them.
