What Are The Esthetician Facial Steps?

If you are looking for a simple way to improve the appearance of your skin, then you should consider getting a facial.  Facials have been shown to reduce the appearance of acne, slow down the aging process and reduce wrinkles. There are multiple steps involved in getting involved in a facial.

Below are some of the esthetics facial steps:


The esthetician will first analyze your skin. After that, he or she will cleanse the skin. The purpose of the cleansing phase is to remove dirt and toxins in your skin.


Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells so that the skin can regenerate new ones. It also helps release congestion and brighten the skin. Estheticians can use glycolic acid,  vitamin C or enzyme treatment. The type of treatment that the esthetician uses is dependent upon the type of skin that you have.


An extraction will help remove impurities from the pores. It also helps remove the bacteria that can cause acne.


The next step in the process of performing a facial is to massage the face. The massage helps stimulate the skin and encourage blood flow to the area.


After giving you a relaxing facial massage, the esthetician will apply a mask to your face. He or she will leave the mask on for about 10 minutes. A tightening mask, soothing mask,  clay mask and hydrating mask are some of the different types of masks that can be used. You may get a neck and arm massage while during the time that you have the mask on your face.

In some cases, aestheticians may elect to use LED or high frequency lights on the face. Both high frequency and LED lights can reduce the amount of bacteria in the skin. They also help reduce redness and stimulate the production of collagen.


Hydration is the final step involved in performing a facial. Ultra-rich, soothing and light are some of the different moisturizers that an esthetician may use. The type that he or she chooses is dependent on your skin type. Your esthetician may also add a sunblock to your skin.
