MEDICAL FACIALS

Facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin and give it a smoother, younger look. The treatment starts with cleansing. Then the skin is treated with steam in order to soften it and then is exfoliated  with the use of a mechanical or chemical exfoliant. Mechanical exfoliants have a gritty texture that rubs away the surface dead skin cells. This type of exfoliation usually happens during the steam. Chemical exfoliation uses enzymes and acids to loosen the bond between skin cells. After, the esthetician extracts blackheads and whiteheads. And finally, after a massage, a carefully chosen mask depending on the skin type is being applied. Facial treatment is recommended once every four weeks.


Microdermabrasion 

Microdermabrasion is a process of dry skin removal with mechanical exfoliation. The mechanical exfoliant has a diamond tip and a small vacuum device which gently scrubs the skin surface and vacuums the dead skin cells. This procedures goes very well together with oxygen treatment. Microdermabrasion is recommended once in every three weeks.
