STEAM CLEANSE FACIAL FAQ
HOW DOES A STEAM CLEANSE FACIAL WORK? Our facial protocols are specially formulated to achieve the most in a short treatment time. Double cleansing is a method of cleansing your face twice. The benefit of double cleansing is that the first cleanser will break down any makeup, remove dirt and excess oils from the day and clean your skin. The second cleanser will address your particular skin type or concern and should have ingredients to hydrate, smooth or exfoliate and treat acne. Toner is designed to cleanse the skin further and shrink the appearance of pores, moisturise, protect and refresh the skin. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the surface of the skin creating a smoother appearance and allowing products to penetrate the skin more effectively. Steam is applied to the face to relax your pores and helps loosen any build up of dirt for a deeper cleanse. Opening up your pores also softens blackheads, making them easier to remove. Ultrasonic technology uses high-frequency vibration to open pores wider, so dirt and debris are gently vibrated and scrubbed away. Once dirt and debris are washed away, pores appear smaller and your skin looks smoother and brighter. Extractions clear clogged pores free from blackheads (open commodores) or whiteheads (closed commodores) using a special extraction tool to reduce pain, inflammation or the risk of scarring. We recommend you do not pick at any blemishes at home. Massage improves circulation, stimulates lymphatic drainage to remove toxins all while reducing stress and adding immediate vitality to dull complexions. Masks are hydrating and moisturising for the skin, can remove excess oils, improve the appearance of your pores, pulls out impurities and helps reduce the signs of aging. Serums offer a bigger, more powerful dose of active ingredients designed to nourish, protect and hydrate your skin while brightening, reducing the appearance of fine lines and hydrating the skin. Moisturiser hydrates by locking in moisture and prevents the water from evaporating from your skin. This leaves skin supple, soft and healthy. This will slow down the signs of ageing and contribute to a more youthful and glowing complexion.

WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN YOU HAVE THIS TREATMENT ON? As suggested in the name, the primary treatment area for providing a skincare facial is to the face although we also include the neck and décolletage - a fancy name for the upper chest area. We are also able to offer this treatment on the back which is known as a 'bacial' (back facial) which is particularly useful for clients suffering with 'bacne' (back acne). As the client is face down during a back treatment we replace the facial massage with an express back massage to improve circulation and clear away toxins. We recommend if you are having both face and back treatments in one visit that you have the back treatment first.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE A STEAM CLEANSE FACIAL? The steam clean facial can be used as a stand alone treatment for a pamper treat or prior to a meaningful event. To see an improvement in your skin condition we recommend that this treatment is most beneficial when taken every 3-6 weeks. Most clients schedule their facial every 4 weeks as part of their monthly skincare regime.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO HAVING A STEAM CLEANSE? Facials, when performed correctly, remove dirt and germs from pores while also improving the overall appearance and feel of your skin. Skincare facials are generally a gentle treatment however, there are some side effects that are uncommon but may be experienced. Before doing any procedure, we do our best to ensure it is suited for your skin type. Here are a few typical adverse effects that some individuals may suffer after a facial: Irritation and Redness The most typical side effects of a facial are having some redness and blotchy skin. This is typically related to the exfoliation pressure and any extractions or substances used during the treatment. Your skin should be allowed to recuperate after your treatment so we advise you not to wear makeup or use any other products on your skin for the first day or two following your facial. We advise you to schedule your treatment three days before any major events so your face can have time to dissipate any redness. Breakouts Steaming causes the blood vessels in your skin to open up (vasodilation) which in turn increases your circulation, when combined with manual extractions they will move blockages to the surface of the skin. The combination of massage and steam acts like a decongestant, encouraging sebum and oil up and out of your skin, which can manifest as a small breakout if you’re unlucky. The ingredients used can also exacerbate this effect. As your skin goes through its renewal process, it can bring more congestion to the surface. But don’t despair. This is a good thing and it means clearer skin is on the way. Essentially, it might not be that your facial is causing a breakout. It’s more that it’s bringing to the surface what is trapped beneath your skin. Dryness One of the primary goals of a facial is to exfoliate the skin and bring the freshest layer of skin to the surface. However, if you have more sensitive skin, exfoliating too vigorously may leave the skin feeling dry and sensitive. If you are prone to sensitivities, you can avoid any dryness by using a mild, fragrance-free moisturiser. Avoiding the sun after a facial is also recommended since UV rays can further aggravate dry skin. Avoid Complications With a Proper Facial Consultation A facial consultation is a process of determining skin type, benefits, and potential contraindications to offer the appropriate treatments. We will collect a medical history, learn about your existing skin regimen, and establish objectives for improving your skin. During this time, please disclose any medical history regarding skin health, any diagnosed skin diseases and any allergies that may produce anaphylaxis, rashes, itching, or redness. Tell us any information about your skin type, such as whether it's normal, dry, oily, or combination. Also if you have had any spa treatments in the past and any problems encountered with previous facials.
