What is a spa facial treatment?

A facial is a beautifying skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates dead skin cells, hydrates and moisturises the skin, and treats common skin concerns with a custom regime.

Facial treatments are one of the most popular treatments for spa-goers. Facials are designed to boost the immediate appearance and overall health and longevity of the skin.

Nearly all facial treatments comprise deep cleansing and exfoliation stages, but the products and tools used depend on the type of facial – and the spa venue – selected. You can enjoy this indulgent treatment on it’s or as part of a pamper day or overnight spa break.

What are the benefits facial treatments?

The pampering experience of a beautifying facial can provide multiple health and beauty benefits.

A regular facial is ideal for maintaining good skin health and can leave you with a radiant complexion. There are many types of spa facial to choose from.

For example, some aid skin elasticity, preventing sagging, wrinkles and other tell-tell ageing signs, while others help to combat dry skin ailments or acne.

Even the lucky few of you with perfect skin will enjoy the indulgent pleasure of a facial, which utilises gentle massage techniques.

Facial massages are not only relaxing; they also boost circulation and blood flow, helping the skin on your face to self-heal while re-energising your mind.

Types of spa facial treatments

Some of our most popular facial treatments include:

Exfoliation facial

The ultrasonic facial is a medically proven treatment that uses ultrasound waves to loosen and remove dead skin cells and restore the natural vibrancy. The process is safe: it doesn’t use crystals or chemicals and it is perfect for sensitive, sun-damaged, acne and acne prone skin types.

Anti-ageing facials

Anti-ageing facials aim to improve the look and feel of skin that has visible signs of ageing (age spots, fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage).

Depending on the brand, these facials may include specialist equipment or massage techniques to help stimulate the facial muscles, to help lift and firm skin – restoring elasticity.

They may also include a gentle peel or deep exfoliation followed by hydrating serums and creams, to help the skin look plumper and smoother. Some facials aim to provide a non-surgical facelift. 

Ultrasonic facial

While many of the chemical peels offered by medical spas are capable of damaging live skin cells if applied incorrectly or for too long, the proteolytic exfoliants in enzyme facials can only destroy dead cells, making them a gentler choice.

These condition-based facials target acne, and dry, dull, tired and/or greasy skin, and provide an instantly younger appearance without temporary redness, making them a celebrity favourite.

Peel facials

Peel facials improve skin texture and tone and lessens the appearance of fine wrinkles. The results are subtle, but increase with repeated treatments. If you have a medium chemical peel, treated skin will be noticeably smoother.

Moisturising facial

A hydrating facial treatment is designed to nourish your skin on a deeper level, removing dead skin cells, and stimulating the formation of newer, healthier cells. Once the exfoliation of the top layer of old, dead skin is complete, the healthy, hydrated, younger-looking skin underneath is revealed.

Lifting facial

A facelift is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing excess skin, smoothing out folds or wrinkles, and tightening facial tissue. That cosmetic surgical procedure to create a younger look in the face. The procedure can reduce sagging skin.

Whitening facial

Cosmetic procedure that aims to lighten dark areas of skin or achieve a generally paler skin tone. It’s usually used to improve the appearance of blemishes such as birthmarks and dark patches (melasma).

Lymphatic drainage facial

A lymphatic drainage massage serves to drain build up of lymphatic fluid within your face. The gentle, light massage treatment enhances circulation in your face by delivering oxygen around the skin and pushing waste and toxins out of the lymph nodes.
