THE BENEFITS OF FACIALS

Our faces are the first thing people see when they look at us and often play a role in how we feel about ourselves. Most people understand the importance of having a great daily skincare routine but often overlook the fact that the skin needs regular deeper cleaning to be at its best and allow the daily regimen to work its best. Long term benefits also come from treating our skin to high-quality monthly facials. Not only are facials relaxing, but they are also extremely valuable in maintaining the appearance of our skin as we grow older. Regular facials can make a major difference in the quality of our skin. They enhance the skin's appearance by substantially reducing breakouts and clogged pores and help prevent dryness and premature fine lines and wrinkles. A Custom European Facial from Raya includes:

Professional Evaluation

When you come to our spa, an esthetician will closely take a look at your skin to see what type of facial would best suit your its needs, whether it's hydration, acne control, age-defiance, or general preservation. 

Relaxation

Once your assessment is complete, you'll instantly feel relaxed as lotion is applied to your hands, which will then be placed in warm gloves to moisturize the skin. Your face will be cleansed and moisturized as well, using products that are most beneficial to your skin type. A calming massage of the face, neck, shoulders, and upper back will soothe you even more and start the energy flowing.

Decongestion

Steam will flow through the room to heat and open your pores before extractions, and an enzyme mask will be applied. Then, special care is taken to remove any congestion that may lie below the skin. This process prevents further breakouts and can be the most significant part of a facial, because it results in longer-term clear skin and unclogs pores. 

Exfoliation 

An exfoliating mask or peeling cream will  be applied, helping remove dead skin cells from the skin's surface and keep them from blocking pores. Following exfoliation, an astringent and high frequency will be applied to remove any remaining bacteria, help prevent future breakouts, and shrink pores.  

Lip and Under Eye Nourishment

A warm Azulene paraffin treatment on the lips and under the eyes will lock in moisture and soften and nourish the delicate lip and under eye areas. 

 

Hydration 

Finally, you'll feel a soothing mask that will hydrate and nourish the skin. After the mask is removed and a calming treatment is applied, your skin will be feeling fresh and rejuvenated. Over time and with regular care, you'll begin to see your skin become softer, clearer, and brighter.
