Getting a Facial for the First Time? Here’s What You Can Expect

The skin care specialists at Laveda Boutique near College Park, MD believe that a facial is an important part of the skincare routine. Our organic products are all-natural and made with locally-sourced ingredients so that our beauty treatments can be accessed by anyone, no matter how sensitive his or her skin may be! There are so many benefits to getting regular facials, but if you have never had one before, here is what you can expect:

The Consultation

Before any products are put on your face, your esthetician will ask you a bunch of questions. Some of these may seem a little bit personal, but the questions will simply allow the skin care specialist to get a better understanding of your skin and your lifestyle. This will help the esthetician decide what course of action may be best for your skin.

The Assessment

After the question and answer session, the skin care specialist will take a good, hard look at your face. You will usually be asked to close your eyes and relax, and then the esthetician will look at your pores and any issues that may be visible on your skin like discolorations or blemishes. Don’t be surprised if he or she uses a magnifying lens to get an up close and personal look.

The Discussion

The next step in the facial will usually be the discussion about the direction the facial will go in. The skin care specialist will describe what he or she thinks should be done and what types of products will be best. If you have any allergies or sensitivities, you should definitely let the esthetician know before products are used on your skin.

The Facial

Now, it is finally time for the moment of truth: The Facial. Here is where all of the good stuff happens. Depending on your skin care needs, you may receive steam, masks, cleansers, toners, extractions, exfoliates, and many other types of skin care procedures. There is nothing that would be considered painful in the process, although extractions can be a bit uncomfortable. Most of the time is filled with facial scrubbing and massages. It can be quite relaxing!
