If you’ve never experienced a facial before, or don’t experience them on the regular, you might not know that there are several different types, all with their own benefits. Let’s talk about 4 of the most well liked and most common types of facials.
First, we have the classic facial. All classic facials have a few main components, the order might be different depending on the esthetician and client needs, but most consist of the same basic elements. First you’ll start with a skin analysis and a short discussion about any issues or concerns you might have. Then your esthetician will develop a game plan based on those needs. The facial itself will then consist of a cleanse, exfoliation, steam, extraction and a mask! This simple process will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed! A classic facial is perfect for anyone new to the esthetics world, and is recommended about once a month, as new skin regenerates every 28 days.
Second, we have the hydrafacial (also known as wet microderm). We’ve talked in detail about microdermabrasion on our blog in the past, so if you want a full rundown of the different types available at The Salon Professional Academy, make sure to read that article. But for now, we’ll give a super condensed version! The hydrafacial works by pulling debris from pores while infusing them with nutrient rich serums. It’s comfortable, relaxing and leaves your skin feeling moist and rejuvenated! This type of facial is recommended for patients with dull or dehydrated skin that need a total refresh!
Next, we have the LED facial. This type of facial uses different colors of light, which represent different wavelengths to help heal scars, fight bacteria and promote collagen production. Each color or wavelength has different benefits. Red light, which is most commonly used, supports healthy elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While blue light is great for minimizing blemish causing bacteria on the skin. Because these treatments don’t take a lot of time, they’re usually combined with other treatments or added onto a traditional facial
Lastly, we have the lymphatic facial. This facial is known for helping aid the body’s natural detox process. It helps clear the body of accumulated waste in the body by stimulating lymph nodes in the neck and face. This is usually done by massaging the lymph nodes, using hands or gua sha stones. Not only is this facial incredibly good for you, it also helps reduce puffiness in the face.
No matter which route you choose, you will not regret making facials a staple in your monthly routine. Take the time to pamper yourself, relax and reap the benefits of these facials long after they’re done. Book your next facial now at The Salon Professional Academy – Rapid City.
