How will the facial begin?
You will be asked to complete a brief, confidential client information card, which will aid the esthetician in determining the appropriate treatment for your skin. After being escorted to the facial room, you will be seated in a facial chair. The esthetician will place a coverlet over you to protect your clothing and ensure your comfort. The treatment will begin with the esthetician cleansing and analyzing your skin. Using the information from your client card and skin analysis, the esthetician will discuss how the facial you have chosen will benefit your individual skin.
Can I receive a facial if my skin has some blemishes?
The purpose of a facial is to help correct and preserve the health of the skin — it isn’t expected that your skin will be perfect or blemish-free. If your esthetician finds evidence of comedones (blackheads) during your facial, she will gently attempt to remove them using slight pressure from tissue-covered fingertips. If your skin has red eruptions, your esthetician will be able to work on a very mild occurrence. A dermatologist should treat extreme forms of skin eruptions, acne and other skin conditions and diseases. If you have questions about whether or not a facial would be appropriate for you, please consult with your physician.
