What are facials for acne? A facial is a group of procedures, performed by an aesthetician, to remove dead skin cells and unclog the pores on your face. Facials are available at most spas, but the methods for performing each procedure can vary. When getting facials for acne, the esthetician will perform each of the following procedures: Cleansing and skin analysis: The aesthetician wipes away any excess oil and dirt with a cotton pad or sponge. He/she then looks at your skin with a magnifying glass to analyze your acne, sun damage, dehydration, and/or other conditions. Exfoliation: By definition, an exfoliant removes the top layer of your skin, which primarily consists of dead skin cells. Exfoliation is either a mechanical or chemical process: Mechanical exfoliants are scrubs or other course products that rub away dead skin. Chemical exfoliants are acids and enzymes that slough off dead skin. Extractions: An extraction is the physical unclogging of a clogged pore. The aesthetician pushes a tool called an extractor around each acne lesion, forcing the pus, bacteria, and sometimes blood up through the clogged follicle opening. It is an aggressive procedure that should only be performed by an experienced aesthetician or dermatologist as it can damage your pores if done incorrectly. How do Facials Help Acne? Facials can be an effective way to get rid of non-inflammatory or comedonal acne (whiteheads and blackheads). Comedones occur when pores get clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Facial exfoliation takes off the top layer of skin, which unclogs pores and helps oil flow naturally through the follicles, thus avoiding future breakouts. Extractions remove the existing comedones, which both helps your appearance and also lessens the likelihood developing a pimple (which occurs when a comedone becomes inflamed).

Back facials can be beneficial in cleansing those tough-to-reach spots, targeting a variety of skin care needs such as clogged pores, back acne, and dehydrated skin. This treatment mimics many of the traditional techniques used while performing treatments for the face, and incorporate deep cleansing, extractions, and purifying masks. Back facials are particularly fitting treatments during bathing suit season or for people who wear low-back attire. Why get a back facial? Back facials are, for the most part, a painless extraction process. The facial typically begins with a gentle steaming to open pores and lift impurities, followed by a deep cleansing and exfoliation. The facial for back concludes with a therapeutic mask; some spas also offer a relaxing neck, back, and shoulder massage. Good to know: Additional skin treatments usually reserved for the face such as glycolic peels and dermabrasion are now available for facials for the back.

How Cupping Therapy Works When suction is applied on the skin, the reverse pressure causes the cellulite to break up. Blood circulation is stimulated, and the fat and toxins that are released are moved to the lymph drainage network. Since cupping therapy also promotes a more efficient drainage of the lymph nodes, these toxins are quickly eliminated from the body. Cupping is also known to ease the cords connecting the skin and muscle. In this way, fluid build-up is reduced and the skin develops a more cellulite-free healthy appearance.
Everyone feels a bit self-conscious, especially the first few times. But remember, beauty therapists are expertly trained and perform bikini waxes every day. There are several categories of bikini wax based on how much hair is removed and priced accordingly. The classic shape is the 'Bikini' and involves a simple tidy up of hair at the front and a bit down below – just enough to get you bikini-ready (this is the ideal wax for first-timers). The 'Brazilian' involves a lot more hair removal – typically leaving just a 'landing strip' of hair at the front and all hair removed down below and even round the back.The 'Hollywood' is total hair removal, front to back. Many salons offer a 'High Bikini' or 'G String' wax which is a little more thorough than your classic 'Bikini' shape and includes hair removed from the top to take your strip down in length. Wearing gloves, the therapist applies melted hot wax onto a small section of your hair using a spatula – it's warm, not too hot. Just how painful is it?Everyone has different pain thresholds.Our therapist will do everything possible to make you comfortable. A bit of redness is normal for a few hours. You are now gorgeously hair-free and low-maintenance for about 3-4 weeks before you're ready for your next session.
