Facials Q & A

What is a facial?

A facial is an aesthetic treatment that focuses on helping your skin look and feel its best. There are many different types of facials, and finding the right match for your skin needs and treatment goals is important. 

When you come to MBY Empire Inc. for a facial you’ll begin with a thorough skin assessment to determine which approach is best suited for your needs. Your practitioner will explain the available options and help you make an informed decision about your treatment. 

Many men and women only think about the relaxation aspects of a professional facial. While it is undeniably relaxing to have someone care for your skin as you rest comfortably, a professional facial offers numerous benefits for your skin. 

What are the steps in a facial?

After the consultation portion of your visit, your practitioner begins by cleansing your face to remove any makeup, oil, or debris from the surface of your skin. The type of product used depends on your skin needs.

If you have oily skin your cleanser might be a foaming formulation. Dry or aging skin often responds better to a creamy cleanser. Your practitioner gently removes the cleansing agent to prepare you for the next step. 

A steam treatment often follows. As the gentle vapor of steam hits your skin you’ll find yourself relaxing into the treatment table. Breathe deeply, as the steam is also wonderful for your sinuses. 

Exfoliation usually comes next and involves either a physical or chemical exfoliant to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells. All traces of the exfoliant are removed once the process is complete. 

Extractions might be part of your facial if your pores are clogged. This process involves applying gentle pressure to remove blackheads or whiteheads. 

Facial massage comes next. Not only does this step feel amazing, but it also improves circulation and stimulates your muscle tissue. 

Masks, serums, and other products are applied near the end of your facial, once your skin is thoroughly prepared. You’ll also have time to discuss steps you can take to care for your skin at home before your appointment ends. 

What skin issues can be treated during a facial?

Facials can be customized to suit your specific needs. Elements can be added or left out to provide an experience that works for what your skin needs at the time of your visit. 

Some of the issues that can be addressed during a facial include:

  • Dry skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull texture
  • Irregularities in tone
  • Oily skin
  • Combination skin
  • Inflamed or red skin
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores

Just discuss your treatment goals with your practitioner at the beginning of your visit. The entire facial can be shaped to suit your skin concerns. Schedule your appointment online or by phone today.
