The Essential Steps For A Spa Facial

Facials are among the most popular spa treatments and are used to nourish the skin by exfoliating and cleansing. Being pampered by an esthetician is a relaxing and rejuvenating experience that everyone should make a part of their beauty routine.
In this blog, I will explain the steps of a basic facial. While there are countless facial techniques, most of them have these steps in common:


Your esthetician will wrap your hair in a headband or a towel and remove any makeup that you may be wearing. Some spas have their estheticians rub cream, jell, or lotion onto your face and neck and use cotton pads, cloths, and warm water to remove the cleanser. Once your face is completely clean, you are ready for the next step.


During step two, your eyes will be covered by moistened pads and your esthetician will use a lighted magnifying glass/lamp to look at your skin and determine what kind of treatment you will need. The magnifying glass/lamp will help show what type of skin type you have (oily, dry, etc.) and if you have any skin conditions (acne, sunburn, blackheads, etc.) that need to be accounted for during your treatment. Your esthetician will give you his/her recommendations for the treatment and the two of you will come to an agreement about what will best fit your needs.


This is where the fun stuff starts. Warm steam will be applied to your face using either a heated, moist towel or a machine that gently directs a layer of steam to your face. The warm steam is extremely relaxing and loosens up the muscles in your face. The steam weakens blackheads and whiteheads and the sweat it produces will help clear your pours.


Depending on the facial technique being used, the exfoliation process can take place before, after, or during the steam. An exfoliation gel, cream, mask, peel, or gommage will usually be applied before or after the steam. These products need to be left on your face to treat blackheads. Exfoliation products that involve scrubbing or massage techniques can usually be used during the steam step.


Now that your skin has been exfoliated and the steam has relaxed your face, it is time to extract any whiteheads and blackheads. Because the previous steps were preparation for this one, the extractions should not be very painful. Your estheticians may use the lighted magnifying glass/lamp again to locate the imperfections in your skin. Different estheticians use different extraction techniques. You can discuss this before your facial or the extractions.


Who doesn’t love a massage? After the extraction procedure you deserve to be pampered. A facial massage will be used to stimulate your facial muscles and put you in a state of deep relaxation. Depending on the type of facial, oil or lotion may be used during the

Facial Mask

After your massage a facial mask will be applied. The mask will be specially formulated to match your skin type and help treat any skin conditions that were discussed during the consultation. During most facials you will receive a massage while you wait for the mask to work its magic.

Final Applications

After the mask is removed you will likely receive an application of skin specific cream or gel. You may also receive moisturizer, serums, and sunscreen.

Following the final step, your esthetician will give you advice on how to best take care of your skin in the future. Facials are recommended once a month for the best skin health results.

Notes from Customers

I’ve been going here for 7 months to get waxed by Ana Fisher and if I have one thing to say: PLEASE GO HERE. She is such a delight, very positive and upbeat, likes to converse with you throughout the process, is attentive to how you’re feeling, dedicated to doing her job well, just such an amazing and safe person to go to. The environment is super inviting and clean, very modern, and the appointment system is very smooth and easy to navigate. Ana was the first person I ever went to for my wax and she will continue to be the person I always go to and recommend. 10/10 service and hospitality

I highly recommend! Ana touched up my permanent eye liner on bottom lid, added liner on top lid (which I had previously been told my skin would not take the ink), did my eyebrows and last extensions. I look like a new woman!

I made an appointment for a couple waxing items (modesty has me letting you guess what services). Jenna was just perfect. She was very thorough, exclaiming I was officially “hair free”. Upon inspection I agreed. I’m sold, I’ll go nowhere else for these services.
