Choose The Best Facial:
With increasing awareness of various skin conditions, more and more spas and salons are designing treatments to meet specific skin needs. The facials now fall into four categories like purification treatments, skin renewal treatment, skin brightening treatment and anti-aging treatment.
Purifying Facial: This type is ideal for combination and oily skin types. A purifying treatment with a blend of aroma oils and clay mask can tighten pores and control excess oil production. It helps to eliminate skin blockages, refine pores and control shine. This facial will leave you feeling calm and relaxed and with a clean complexion.
Renewal Facial: This is a retexturising treatment for dry, mature or damaged skin that eliminates fine lines and evens out the skin tone. Most renewal treatments are done with sea-based products. Seaweed provides a gentle marine hydroxy acid which when combined with natural alpha hydroxy acids, exfoliates dry dead skin and leaves it supple and younger looking. It leaves your skin dramatically smoother, softer and brighter. It is also good to go for this after the drying winter months.
Skin Brightening facial: It is good for tanned or patchy skin. Most of the time, glycolic acid is used to exfoliate dead skin, which can give rise to a patchy appearance. Post exfoliation with the peel, the skin is neutralized with a gentle facial and firming mask to soothe sensitivity that may arise due to the use of the peel.
Skin Polishing: It is also known as micro dermabrasion, where very fine diamond dust is brushed over the skin to remove dead skin and stimulate circulation. This is followed with a deep re-hydrating mask to moisturize the skin. This stimulates circulation beneath the surface of the skin, which improves the skin’s texture, while allowing a fresher, more radiant skin to emerge.
Anti-Aging Facial: This is also known as a non-surgical face lift. In this, micro current impulses are given to the face and neck area that tightens and tones up the sagging facial and neck muscles. This is done after proper face cleansing. Post application of the impulses, the skin is treated with a renewal facial to add brightness to it.
Photo Facial: This is where laser is used to stimulate and redistribute collagen around your face to make it appear firm and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This is a good treatment to go for if you have aging skin.
Intensive Eye Treatment: This is an essential treatment for everyone concerned with fine lines and dark circles. The delicate area around the eyes needs careful treatment, and is one of the first areas to show signs of aging. This too is recommended for all skin types.
Mini Facial: A mini facial is ideal for women on the go. It is relaxing, deeply cleansing, and balancing. It includes natural exfoliation and a stimulating massage done in 30 minutes. It is recommended for everyone in a rush.
