Deep Cleansing

A deep facial cleansing treatment, which is similar and often compared to a European facial, goes well beyond what a traditional facial will do. The deep cleansing facial is well suited for people with acne, or those prone to excessive oil on their face. The Deep Cleanse focuses more on extraction but may also include a light/superficial chemical peel component.

What is a Deep Cleansing Facial?

Deep cleansing facials use a variety of treatments to clean your face more thoroughly than what other treatments provide. You can expect to have your face steamed to open up the pores; an extraction of clogged pores, whiteheads and blackheads; a deep pore cleansing treatment and sometimes High Frequency to improve the skin’s surface and underlying layers.

What are the benefits of each?

A deep cleansing facial goes well beyond products typically found in your local drugstore. The extraction will help with quicker healing of the skin, as well as the appearance. The exfoliation will add radiance to your skin. You can expect your skin to be more hydrated due to better product penetration.

What are the risks?

Similar to other facials, people with sensitive skin may experience some irritation, redness and dryness on your skin. The redness can be caused by the extractions or the by the chemicals found in the cleansing treatment. Both of these are only temporary and should go away within a few days. Please advise your Therapist if you are on medication (i.e. Accutane, Antibiotics, cortisone)
