How Often Should You Get a Professional Facial
We put forward a few of your most asked questions to our expert Facialists. Here’s what they have to say:
1. How often would you recommend having a facial treatment?
Ekaterina Fadeeva: “The frequency of a facial may depend on the specific concern that is being treated, but generally I would recommend once every three/four weeks. That’s how long your skin’s life cycle is and cells of your epidermis layer take to grow back. Having a proper facial helps this process of renewal and ensures your skin is always glowing.”
Sabrina Fabbo:“If you have normal to combination skin then once every 3/4 weeks would work. If you have a great skincare routine at home then once every 6 weeks would work. The best way to understand this is to speak to a professional facialist who will guide you through the process.”
2. What Does a facial include? What are the steps of a facial treatment?
Sabrina Fabbo: “We would first analyse the skin to see what type of facial and products are required. Generally, the first step of a facial treatment is cleansing; this procedure is done twice so that we can guarantee a clean face surface. Toner is done a few times which ensures we wipe any dirt or cream residue. Exfoliation is done in circular movements and is used on normal to dry skin. A scrub may be used on oily skin which helps the steamer to penetrate under the layer of the skin.
The steamer is next and is key for a good facial treatment as it will help to open the pores, and depending on your skin type it can last between 10 – 15 minutes. Once the skin is wet it means it is ready to start the extraction. The extraction can be done using hands or a tool and is very gentle and won’t be as bad as you think. It is then followed by a mask and moisturiser/oils and serum with a facial massage to lock in moisture.”
Ekaterina Fadeeva: “Any facial treatment should always start with a consultation with the client. After that, the therapist starts with the procedure as mentioned above. The best part, according to most of the clients, is the facial massage, to relax and stimulate the skin and facial muscles by using different techniques.”
