No two spa experiences are ever the same. That said, seeing a skincare professional is one of the best ways to keep your skin looking and feeling its most luxurious, which is why Silk Therapeutics is proud to launch its product line for spas, dermatologists and plastic surgery practices.
And though no two spa experiences are the same, generally speaking, there are steps that overlap from treatment to treatment. For example, take the facial. Though there are several types of facials – advanced anti-aging, acne, the list goes on – usually the steps are the same.
You’ll begin with a consultation with your esthetician. Here you can explain your concerns and make sure you’re getting a treatment customized to your needs. After thoroughly cleansing your face, neck and chest area, she’ll use a magnifying loop light to analyze your skin to determine your skin type and condition.
Based on your consultation, your esthetician will proceed with a form of exfoliation to remove dead skin and bring healthy cells to the top. Here, she’ll manually extract any clogged pores and clean everything up to leave your skin looking its best.
Next comes the massage, arguably the best part of any facial. Most people think that the massage is just for a feel-good relaxation, but in reality, your esthetician is using a special technique that increases blood flow and boosts circulation. In doing so, nutrients are being brought closer to the surface of your skin giving you that gorgeous glow.
The final step of a facial is a mask. After your mask, your esthetician may apply an eye cream, facial serum or moisturizer. You want to be sure, as with any treatment, that the products being used are safe and healthy for both your skin and overall well-being.
After any facial, you’ll walk away with your skin feeling clean, smooth, soft and, most importantly, healthy. So next time you’re at a spa, you can relax knowing the treatment your skin is about to face.
