Traditional Facial Options
When it comes to classic facials, there are several tried-and-true options that have been around for years. Each of these treatments targets various skin concerns and provides a unique combination of health and relaxation benefits. Some notable traditional facials include:
1) Deep Cleansing Facial
A favourite choice for those with oily or acne-prone skin, this facial focuses on deep cleansing, unclogging pores, and extracting impurities. It helps prevent future breakouts and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and clean.
This exfoliating facial option uses a specialized tool to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells. It smooths the skin’s texture, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulates collagen production.
3) Classic European Facial
The European Facial is a popular facial designed to cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish the skin. It includes a relaxing facial massage, targeted masque, and essential hydration, creating a balanced and rejuvenated complexion.
4) Anti-Aging Facial
Specifically designed to combat the signs of aging, this facial utilizes active ingredients, such as collagen and retinol, to improve skin elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance overall skin tone.
5) Sensitive Skin Facial
Gentle and soothing, the sensitive skin facial is specifically designed for individuals with sensitive or easily irritated skin. It utilizes calming ingredients and techniques to reduce redness, inflammation, and irritation while still providing a deep cleanse.
Modern Facial Options
In addition to the classic facials mentioned above, there are a variety of modern facial options that incorporate advanced technology and innovative techniques to achieve impressive results. These contemporary treatments provide unique benefits and address various skin concerns. Some popular modern facials include:
This multi-step treatment combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant infusion into one seamless, non-invasive procedure. HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types and targets various skin concerns like fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration.
2) LED Light Therapy Facial
Using innovative LED (light emitting diode) light technology, this facial helps to stimulate collagen production, minimize inflammation, and promote healing. Different colour wavelengths target specific skin concerns, such as acne, rosacea, or wrinkles, making it a versatile option for various skin types. LED uses low level energy and is therefore suitable for superficial skin concerns.
3) IPL Facial
Also known as Intense Pulsed Light, this facial effectively treats a range of skin concerns such as wrinkles, age spots, and sun damage.
An IPL treatment uses high-intensity broad-spectrum light pulses to which penetrate deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production, and healing damaged and photo-aged skin, promoting overall rejuvenation. Although an IPL facial penetrates deeper into the skin it does not require downtime.
4) Microneedling Facial
Another popular facial treatment, microneedling, involves using tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin.
Microneedling stimulates collagen production and helps to reduce the appearance of various skin concerns, such as acne scarring, wrinkles, dark spots, and stretch marks. While not necessarily pampering, it’s highly effective at revitalizing the skin! Microneedling often requires down time of a day or two depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. Microneedling pairs well with IPL for an added boost of skin healing.
5) OxyGeneo Facial
Known as the “3-in-1 Super Facial,” OxyGeneo exfoliates, oxygenates and nourishes to give your skin a deep cleanse and hydration boost. This non-invasive treatment pairs well with the TriPollar® skin tightening radiofrequency which feels like a warm massage for the face, leaving you feeling refreshed and comfortable.
The OxyGeneo facial uses natural physiological processes to increase oxygen levels in the skin and achieve an overall healthier complexion. The exfoliation process removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin while infusing it with essential nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, C, and E, and other nourishing ingredients.
OxyGeneo is one of our favourites here at Spa Escape, as it’s suitable for all skin types and provides visible results after just one treatment. Whether you’re looking to reduce signs of aging, address uneven skin tone, or simply achieve a radiant glow, this facial is a fantastic option. Plan a series of this treatment for an even more noticeable boost of health to your skin!
