At Accolades Salon Spa, here’s more about the steps involved in our process:

A facial is a multi-step skin treatment that incorporates cleansing and exfoliating to nourish your skin and promote an even, well-hydrated, and youthful complexion.

Every facial should start off with a brief consultation. This should include any skin concerns, what types of food you eat, if you drink enough water and so on. Next, is the preparation phase. Depending on what type of facial you are receiving, your esthetician will provide you with a wrap and ask you to undress to your comfort level. Once you do so, you can slide into the sheets and wait. Now comes the fun part:

  • Cleansing
    Your esthetician will wrap your hair with a towel and then use cotton pads or sponges to remove any product or makeup from your face.
  • Skin Analysis
    Using a bright, magnifying lamp, your esthetician will examine your skin and determine what types of products are appropriate for you. For example, if your skin is dry or oily, sensitive or normal. Conditions may include aging, sun damage, acne, blackheads and so on.
  • Steam
    Using warm steam vapors can help relax your skin and prepare your face for the facial.
  • Exfoliation
    Many estheticians use either a mechanical or chemical exfoliant to remove dead skin cells from the surface.
  • Extractions
    This is not always performed during a facial but if and when needed, this step includes the removal of blackheads or whiteheads.
  • Massage and Masks
    Your esthetician will perform a series of applications of mask products and massage to relax and stimulate your skin and muscles. From toners to serums, moisturizers to sunscreen, this relaxing regimen is targeted to address your skin type and condition.

At Accolades Salon Spa, we offer several different varieties of facials including a restorative, self-healing, or antioxidant blast version.
