I often hear from our clients that they are not sure what treatment they need to schedule with us. This recently happened again as I had a client who scheduled an acne treatment & consultation when all she really needed was a Deep Pore Cleansing Facial. Well, I didn't have that treatment as an option on our menu. Even though an acne treatment is pretty much a deep pore cleansing facial to begin with.
So, I decided to add a new facial to our menu. It's a little different from our Acne Treatment because the needs are a little different. With a deep pore cleansing facial, we do a lot more facial massage to loosen up the skin and we've also added in a second mask.
I thought it would be a good idea to shed some light on what this facial actually is so if you, or someone you know, is looking for a facial to eliminate a bunch of blackheads and whiteheads, then please read on......
What is all involved with a Deep Pore Cleansing Facial?
First of all, there are just some things you can't do at home yourself or with the aide of topical creams & serums. The main purpose of this facial is to physically remove debris from the skin. Yup, we will unclog your pores for you. In order for this to happen with as little discomfort as possible, we begin by cleansing your skin. We will most likely use a gentle and hydrating enzyme cleanser. This begins the process of loosening up and removing of the outermost layer of dead skin cells. We then apply an enzyme to the skin. We massage it while it's on the face for about 10-15 minutes while you have steam. The steam keeps the skin soft and plumps it up. Trust us when we say this is essential for extractions.
After the steam & enzyme we perform extractions. This isn't the best part of the facial but is tolerable. As estheticians, we kind of get our kicks with extractions. We see immediate results and that's a great day at the office for us. Sorry, I degress here. Let's move on.
We perfrom as many extractions as we can do with the time alloted. Sometimes we'll spend more time on extractions or we'll spend more time on the next step which is the application of our Bamboo & Charcoal detox mask. This mask is the bomb! This helps to tighten up the pores and draws out more impurities from the skin. Even though we've done that with the extractions, there are smaller pores that are starting the build up of debris that we can't see. Therfore, we don't perform extractions of what we can't see.
One more thing about extractions and then I'll move on. We don't recommend doing extractions at home because the chance of mild infections and scarring can occur. Yeah, both are bad and you don't want either. Please let a professional handle this for you.
