A facial generally refers to a variety of skin care treatments for the face. This includes using steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, masks, peels and massage. Facials promote general skin health and are also useful to address specific skin conditions. We use a variety of facial techniques depending on the purpose, and we offer “back facials” and “teen facials” as well. Facials for teens are designed to address breakouts associated with adolescent skin. Teen facials typically begin with a deep cleansing, followed by gentle extractions. A healing mask will then help to rehydrate dry skin or eliminate oily particles. Facials are helpful in addressing persistent issues and also serve as a means of preemptive skincare.
