Facials

Why a facial…?

  • You want great looking skin all year round.
  • You want to address skin problems.
  • You want to look younger and more vibrant.
  • You want your skin to have a polished look.
  • You want to relax and be pampered.
  • You want to feel more confident and attractive.

 

Do…

  • Remove your shoes.
  • Remove neck jewellery
  • Remove your top and bra (for ladies) and put on the gown provided.
  • Lay down on the treatment bed ready for covering.

Do…

  • Let your therapist know if you’re comfortable or not. You may be too hot, too cold or need extra cushioning under your knees – let her know. At Essential Beauty we believe you should be comfortable while we treat your skin.

 

Don’t…

  • Worry if you fall asleep. This is meant to be a pampering experience too!

 

What happens during a facial…?

Here is a general guide depending on which facial you choose.

  • Your therapist will examine your skin to determine your skin type and the products to be used.
  • Your therapist will cleanse your skin.
  • Your therapist may apply a toner. This is optional depending upon your skin and the facial you have chosen.
  • Your therapist will carefully exfoliate your skin using a brush machine.
  • Your therapist will gently extract any blackheads using a comedone extractor.
  • Your therapist will apply a mask for your particular skin type.
  • While the mask takes effect, your therapist will massage your neck and décolletage.

 

If you feel one of these steps has been missed or hasn’t been done well, please stop your therapist and let her know. When you work together with your therapist, you will get the best possible results.

Do…

  • Use a clean, fresh pillowcase.
  • Use an SPF 30+ sunblock.
  • Use the correct products for your skin type.
  • Drink plenty of water to flush your system, eat balanced meals, sleep at least 8 hours a night and avoid smoking and drinking alcohol. Doing all this will help to support your skin’s health and prolong the benefits of your facial.

 

Don’t…

  • Touch your skin – especially if you have had extractions.
  • Exfoliate for 3 days.
  • Wear heavy makeup for 8 hours.

 

What happens next…?

  • After a facial your skin can be more sensitive than normal. Follow our Do and Don’t guide to help reduce any sensitivity.

 

Do…

  • Use an SPF30+ sunscreen daily.
  • After 3 days, you can very gently use asap daily exfoliating scrub to remove peeling.
  • Use asap soothing gel to calm any irritation you may experience.

 

Don’t…

  • Wash or wet your face for 8 hours. However, if you feel there is excessive redness or irritation during this time, you should rinse your skin thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  • Exfoliate for 3 days following your peel.
  • Use asap radiance serum, asap anti-aging night cream, asap super C serum, asap super A+ serum or other active skin products, such as prescription Retin A, for 5 days.
  • Pick or pull at any loosening or exfoliating skin. This could damage your skin or cause uneven pigmentation.

 

What happens next…?

  • Everyone responds differently to peel treatments. Peeling, if it occurs, will generally begin around your mouth and is usually over in 3 to 5 days. It’s best to continually moisturise any flaking or peeling skin to help this process.
