Skin Care With European Spa Facials

european spa facialsFacials are essentially a series of treatments designed to improve the composition, feel and look of facial skin.  There are a number of different facials, frequently geared towards reducing fine lines or getting rid of acne.

  European spa facials are basic treatments meant to generally enhance your appearance.

A European facial is frequently considered a remarkable “introductory” facial. Although spas and salons provide slight variations, there is a basic pattern followed when European facials are administered.

Cleansing the Face

The skin is cleansed to eliminate traces of dirt, topical buildup and makeup.  This is followed up with an exfoliating scrub to promote cell turnover and get rid of dead skin.  Additionally, steam may be used to assist in releasing oils and dirt from deep inside the pores.  A steam generator or warm towels placed over the face may be used to apply steam.


At this stage of the facial, the technician may extract whiteheads or blackheads.  Extractions can be slightly painful and could create redness that takes several hours to disappear.  While extractions can assist in improving the appearance of the skin, many individuals find them distracting and uncomfortable from the overall relaxing effect of the facial.  The majority of technicians will gladly skip the extraction portion, if requested.

Facial Mask

The application of a facial mask that is customized to match a particular skin type usually follow facial cleansing and extractions.  Typically, the mask is left on for approximately 10 to 15 minutes.  After removing the mask, a moisturizer and toner will be applied to stave off excessive drying.


A European spa facial typically lasts between 60 and 90 minutes; however, less costly “mini-facials” are usually available and take approximately 30 minutes.  Before beginning treatment, inform the spa of any allergies. Spa technicians usually carry out a skin analysis prior to doing the facial.

Benefits of European Spa Facials

Some of the benefits of European facials include:

Younger-Looking Appearance

They assist in reducing the appearance of fine lines and age spots. After getting a European facial, the skin will look noticeably younger.

Hydrates the Skin

This type of facial will assist in hydrating the skins, creating a more rejuvenated and youthful look.

Reduces Tensions

Not only is the facial good for the skin, it is good for the entire body as well. The massage will assist in reducing tension.

Unclogs the Pores

Left untreated, clogged pores could result in whiteheads, pimples and blackheads.  European spa facials will assistance in unclogging the pores. Therefore, the skin could become less apt to getting acne after this treatment is done.

Rids the Skin of Toxins

A number of toxins can develop under the skin.  The facial will assist in removing these toxins, which will boost blood flow to the skin.
