A day at the spa without facial treatment is incomplete. Tired skin can be waiting for treatment, but it is challenging to choose which treatment to choose. Here are some of the common facial treatments that would be beneficial and can be added to the list while having a spa visit for facial treatment.
LED Light Therapy
Light-emitting diodes or LEDs give out the heat-free light which passes through the skin to affect the deeper layers in many ways. It depends upon the light’s wavelength, and Aestheticians glow in different types to light onto the face while having the sessions. The red line does the production of collagen and elastin as it stimulates the skin cells. On the other hand, the blue light kills the acne-causing bacteria, which prevents shrink pores and future breakouts. This treatment is done for fine lines, acne, and sagging skin.
The European Facial is a spa treatment that is the most common type of facial. It is designed to get rid of impurities on the surface and to have deep clean skin. It can be done every few weeks for simple skin upkeep rather than specialised care. While some variations exist, components like a massage, a soothing mask, cleansing, steam, a moisturiser, and extractions remain the same. It is mainly treated for clogged pores, blackheads, dull skin, and irritation.
Oxygen facial is a popular treatment done by celebrities as it gives fresh skin right before the appearances for the events. It pumps up the skin and lifts it without the telltale redness like other facial treatments. So, it can be used immediately for makeup application. An airbrush is used to spray pressurised oxygen and customised skincare serums onto the face. The oxygen boosts the skin’s intake of anti-ageing and moisturising products, which will eventually reduce the tiny flaws that might show up on the camera. It is treated for the sagging skin, imperfections, and fine lines.
The chemical peel technique uses glycolic lactic or a combination of salicylic acid or salicylic acid alone to treat the skin—the acid of glycolide targets fine lines, and lactic treats ageing or spots. Acne or oily skin can be treated with salicylic acid. All peels are similar to microdermabrasion as it removes the top layer of the cells in the skin. It is used to protect from sun damage, acne, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines.
Two tools are used for the treatment, where one sprays the tiny exfoliating crystals and vacuums them with sloughed-off skin cells simultaneously. The other tool uses the diamond-covered tip, which scrubs the additional layer of the skin.
