Facial Best Practices

Some people may think that getting a facial is something that is done on special occasions.  Those of us that are serious about skincare,  know that it’s more ongoing.  Although facials can be very relaxing, at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa we take the act a little more personal.  So let us all get serious about getting a facial and take time to learn a little about pre-facial best practices.

Professional skincare treatments will provide deep hydration, exfoliation and a thorough analysis of your skin’s needs and issues.  We at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa take pride in our facial services.  We use the best skincare line (Image), customize each and every facial to our clients’ specific needs, and utilize the safest practices.

There are many things one can do in order to get more out of their facial treatments at our facility.  To help individuals out, we decided to put together this quick Pre-facial check list below.

  1. Do not wear make up when arriving to your facial treatment appointment.  Our most popular facial is 60 minutes and we want to use most of the time working on the skin, not removing make up.
  2. Take pictures of the skincare products that are currently being used in the household (particularly the prescription items).  Seeing pictures helps the Aesthetician to use products that enhance the products used at home as opposed to them being counterproductive .
  3. When receiving a new medication prescription, always ask the provider  whether it affects the skin and if it’s safe to continue facial treatments/products while on the medication.  Also let the Aesthetician know if there are any precautions that should be taken.  We at Absolute Body Waxing & Spa are capable of customizing the facial treatments  in order to get favorable results.
  4. It is best (when possible) to book facial treatments in the evening and a week or so prior to any events or trips.
    1. The face may appear red and blotchy right after a facial treatment and since we do not recommend using makeup right after it is best to relax at home after the service.
    2. Since exfoliation is one of the most important steps in a facial treatment, we suggest minimizing your time outside even while using SPF to prevent unfavorable results.

For best results, follow these suggestions.  Click here to book your next facial treatment!   We are looking forward to seeing you!
