European Facial Skin Treatment
Quite a large number of people who are looking to rejuvenate their skin to feel and look younger sometimes opt for a European facial rather than getting a traditional face mask treatment from their local spa. European facials can benefit almost any skin type, as the procedure involves different cleansing techniques that can help get rid of acne and treat oil, and wash out impurities in your skin. If you are considering having a European facial, it’s important to understand the steps involved so you know what to expect when you arrive at the spa.
Step One: A Deep-Down Cleansing
Skin care specialist start by cleansing your skin with an exfoliating scrub to slough off dead skin cells and expose healthy skin beneath. This part of the European facial treatment will also remove excess oil, dead skin, impurities, and even old makeup that may be clogging up your pores. Once the exfoliating step is complete, the skin care specialist will steam your pores to remove all the dirt and other debris away and that way skin treatment ingredients can be absorbed to the fullest. Finally, this step of a European facial is completed by placing warm towels over the face to enhance the steaming process and the expansion of pores.
Step Two: Acne Treatment
If you suffer from any type of acne, the next step in your European facial will be to remove all blackheads and whiteheads from your skin. This step of the skin treatment will be at your discretion and is optional, as this part of the procedure is not always comfortable, removing blackheads and whiteheads from your skin may leave your skin red and irritated
Step Three: Face Mask
At this point during your European facial, the skin care specialist will apply a facial mask that is matched to your specific skin type. Once the mask has been applied, it will be left in place for about fifteen minutes. Once the mask is removed, the skin care specialist will conclude the European facial with a moisturizer and toner to keep your skin from drying out, as a deep cleansing like this may often cause dryness. You can expect a European facial to take about an hour to an hour and a half for the full treatment, but the time spent at the spa will vary.
At the end of the day you don’t have to leave the country to experience a European facial, but it’s important that the procedure is performed properly, by an experienced dermatologist, like us here at New Image Medical Spa.
