The benefits of facial treatments
When was the last
time you treated yourself to a spa facial? A facial is a great way to
treat your skin. Getting facials will help you achieve a clear
complexion and a nice glow.
A facial can offer many benefits. The face is always subject to the elements such as the sun, maybe smoke or an improper at home regime. Facials offer you the opportunity to work with a professional skin care specialist who will analyze your skin, help you improve your complexion and show you how to take proper care of your skin.
A facial can give you a deep cleansing, deeper than the cleansing you will get at home. A facial includes cleansing as well as exfoliation which can help to unclog your pores. Extracting open comedones will also help rid the skin of acne. Your skin care specialist will help soften the skin with steam, hot moist towels, and enzymes or other exfoliants.
A skin care specialist or esthetician will choose the ingredients to help your skin type. The esthetician may choose a mask to detoxify your skin or hydrate your skin. By getting a proper analysis you will not only learn your skin type, but an esthetician will be able to create a facial experience that addresses your skinís needs.
A facial helps increase circulation and stimulates the skin. It can also help slow down premature aging by custom-targeting your skin care. Facials are a great preventative treatment to help you beat wrinkles before they occur. Keeping your skin hydrated will help keep the skin moist and stop dehydration.
A facial may help you understand the proper skin care products for your skin. Most people are using the wrong products for their skin type; this causes the skin to become sensitized. A good esthetician will work with you to create a home care regime that will be both easy to use and work with your individual skin type. Skin type is determined by pore size, tone, and texture. It is also determined by oil production, called sebum. Written by Debrah Schwabe.
Ultrasonic Facial TreatmentWhat is an Ultrasonic Facial?
This high-tech facial uses a specialized ultrasonic/ultrasound machine that emits high-frequency waves. Ultrasonic treatments benefit a variety of skin types and can improve many common skin conditions. Your esthetician will customize your ultrasonic facial according to your skin type and skincare needs.
In a treatment, the ultrasonic machineís high-frequency waves work to:
∑ Exfoliate dead skin cells for clear and radiant skin without the redness and irritation that can sometimes result from Microdermabrasion or AHA peels.
∑ Loosen and remove oil, dirt and sebum from the pores and hair follicles, resulting in less blackheads and breakouts. Ultrasonic frequency zaps bacteria and decongests the pores. The result? Clear, healthy skin with noticeably tighter pores.
∑ Gently stimulates skin to encourage collagen and elastin production. With a series of treatments, fine lines and wrinkles are less noticeable and skin color, tone and texture becomes more even and uniform.
∑ Stimulates blood flow and lymphatic drainage through the combination of ultrasound and electrical therapy. This nourishes the skin and gives it a youthful rosy glow.
∑ Facilitates hydration and plumps the skin, thereby filling out fine lines and wrinkles.
∑ Helps skincare products do their job by penetrating deeper into the skin. This is especially true for anti-aging and antioxidant serums, creams and masks. Unless an active product is pushed deep into the lower levels of the epidermis, it wonít have a lasting, anti-aging impact on the skin.
∑ Safe for most people: The sonic waves emitted by the ultrasound machine arenít harmful to your health. However, if you have an autoimmune disorder, a diagnosed heart disorder or cancer, itís best to skip the ultrasonic treatment. Anyone living with a chronic health condition should check with his or her physician before proceeding with any aesthetic treatment.
The Benefits Of High Frequency Skin Care Treatment:
Many Estheticians use the power of high frequency for its ability to kick-start the skin rejuvenation process. The safe and gentle oscillating, oxygenating power of high frequency electrical current has been shown to enhance blood circulation, increase collagen and elastin production, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells and improve skin care product absorption. Due to its rapid rate of oscillation, high frequency does not cause muscular contractions - instead, it works on the principle of skin toning.
When using high frequency for anti-aging purposes, results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and do not occur overnight. Although high frequency has been shown to produce an immediate and temporary lifting effect, continued weekly application can provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results. Interestingly, many acne sufferers have found improvements in their complexions after only a few treatments.

Paraffin Mask (face/hands) is a type of facial, which hydrates and softens the skin and helps to reduce fine lines.
Paraffin wax has been used for health and beauty treatments for many years due to it being an effective medium for heat transfer to the skin and joints.
The use of warm paraffin wax on the face, hands
and over the body generally, has a very soothing and therapeutic
effect. In the form of a warm face or hand mask, the warm paraffin
wax applied to the skin makes the blood vessels expand and therefore
helps the circulation, bringing healing nutrients to the surface
and flushing toxins out of the skin.
The overall effect of a paraffin facemask is a softer, firmer complexion, which is more hydrated. This is a particularly good treatment for anyone with dry skin. It is a luxuriant, relaxing facial, which will leave you feeling and looking fresher and younger.
Used as a treatment on the hands (or feet) can ease painful joints for arthritis suffers or for those with bad circulation. This is a very popular treatment, especially in the colder, winter months, when poor circulation can be more of a problem. It comes highly recommended for anyone who suffers from tennis or golfer's elbow.
Paraffin wax is also used for massage and is equally effective at producing warmth to the skin, to increase the blood circulation all over the body. It can help to ease muscle spasms and relieve stress.
On those few colder days of winter, a warm paraffin wax face or hand pack or a full body massage will help you to warm up and feel relaxed and in summer the heat of the paraffin wax works wonders at hydrating the skin after drying has occurred from the sunshine.
