Acne Facial
Acne treatments are not just for teenagers. Many men and women in their 20's, 30's and beyond are dealing with spots, pimples and irritated skin. While many people with acne opt to visit the dermatologist, a visit to the spa could also improve your skin. At the spa, treatments for acne usually employ deep-pore and deep-tissue cleansing to rid the skin of excess oils and stimulate circulation. Antibacterial ingredients like tea tree oil and lavender are often utilized in an Acne Facial to prevent further breakouts and soothe your skin. Acne Facials generally incorporate a combination of thorough steaming, deep cleansing, facial extractions to remove pore-clogging sebum, a healing mask and gentle moisturizer. Don't be afraid to ask questions to find out exactly what is being done to your skin. Let your therapist know if you are on any acne medications as some products do not react well with Acne Facials. For those who suffer from more extreme cases of acne, a spa facial may not be the best treatment. In this case, the therapist should advise you to make an appointment with a dermatologist. In many cases, more than one treatment is needed to achieve the desired result. Generally, a series of acne facials as well as at-home care that features a daily skin-care regime is recommended for ideal results. Learn more about Acne Facials, read Spafinder's Guide to Acne and Deep Cleansing Facials.

Anti-Aging Facials
Anti-aging facials use products and techniques designed to slow the aging process, brighten skin and reduce wrinkles. If you long for a more youthful complexion, select from a variety of anti-aging facial treatments ranging from vitamin-infused serums to light therapy and collagen facials. Enlisting in an anti-aging facial treatment at your favorite spa is a good strategy. Facials are designed to rejuvenate skin, from exfoliation (sloughing away dead, skin-dulling cells) to moisturizing to massage (improving circulation), acting together to improve skin’s texture. An anti-aging facial is an effective preventative measure when it comes to the aging process, and is a good option if you want to skip the surgery for something less invasive. Frankincense and neroli are great natural ingredients for mature skin. Here is an overview of various anti-aging facials that may be right for you: Microdermabrasion: Great for all skin types, this popular treatment involves a blast of micro-crystals blown across the skin and then vacuumed out, in order to remove dead cells on the surface of the skin. No downtime is required and it is designed to reverse the signs of aging and clear up skin conditions such as acne. Light therapy treatments: This slightly invasive skin emits high-intensity pulses of light to penetrate the skin’s surface to help diminish fine lines, reduce pores, eliminate redness, fix broken capillaries, and more. Recovery time is not required, although initial redness may occur. Exfoliating facial: Exfoliating facials boost circulation, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and even out skin tone by eliminating outer layers of skin and prompting up cell turnover. Collagen facial: This treatment attempts to halt the aging process by working deep within the dermis layers, where collagen proteins can be found. Glycolic acid facial: These skincare treatments utilize glycolic acid, one of a family of acids called alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) that are common in anti-aging preparations.

Deep Cleansing
Deep cleansing facials are a classic type of facial, typically involving cleansing, steam, facial massage, facial mask, serum and moisturizer.

Your skin will be glowing, clean and fresh after your treatment and very, very soft. Regular deep cleansing facials will help slow the aging process and add suppleness to mature skin. Like it sounds, Deep Cleansing Facials give pores a much needed deep cleanse, while injecting nutrients and hydration back into the skin.

Exfoliating Facial
The benefits to exfoliating are virtually endless. From increasing blood circulation and reducing fine lines and wrinkles to stimulating cellular renewal, so dead skin sloughs away. Exfoliating facials are designed to remove dead cells on the outer layers of the skin and speed cell turnover, restoring a healthy glow and even skin tone. Facial exfoliation can be performed in one of two ways—either manually or chemically. Exfoliating agents range from delicate jojoba granules, coffee grinds, and sugar scrubs to more aggressive methods. Some of the more aggressive methods are also more popular such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion. If you can, you should have your spa schedule several exfoliating facial sessions along an extended period of time. These types of skincare services are especially effective when performed in a series. If you indulge in an exfoliating facial, it’s also important to note that initial redness may result.

Men's Facial
Facials for men are specifically formulated for male needs, which are often shaving-related, such as razor burn, or include other conditions like skin sensitivity and dullness. There are also types of men’s facials that target skin roughened by spending time in the great outdoors or ones tailored to acne, excessive sweating, living in a city, and skin conditions related to aging. Men may need to schedule a series of facial treatments to see optimal results. Men may also want to consider scheduling an appointment for a spa facial before their wedding day so they look their best when walking down the aisle. Deep-pore cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliation, toning, and vigorous facial, neck, and shoulder massages are typically included during men’s facials. A men's facial usually lasts from 30 minutes to 90 minutes. Different products are used for men's and women's facials, and when essential oils are used, more traditionally masculine scents are the norm. For men, lotions and hot towels are often utilized.

Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a highly effective treatment that can achieve dramatic results. It softens fine lines, smooths the skin & decreases the appearance of scarring and pore size. Treatments involve a microdermabrasion machine, which removes dead skin cells and exfoliates the skin. Older models will use crystal microdermabrasion technology, while newer ones use a diamond-tip. The latter is more comfortable and less intense. Microdermabrasion is best done as a series of treatments, with typical regimens consisting of six treatments every two weeks, though your aesthetician can recommend a program suited to your skin. Microdermabrasion treatments can be uncomfortable, especially those that use a crystal tool rather than the newer diamond version. The experience should never be painful, so be sure to tell your aesthetician if you experience pain. If you have sensitive skin, it’s best to choose diamond-tip microdermabrasion.

Oxygen Facial
Oxygen facials are said to combat visible signs of aging linked to poor conveyance of oxygen from subcutaneous capillaries to the surface of the skin. They address the deficiency by delivering highly concentrated oxygen molecules directly to the epidermis. Many experts suggest that environment, smoking, and excessive amount of makeup lead to lack of oxygen to the skin. Many people who experience the non-surgical oxygen facial treatment see an immediate change in their appearance. Effects of oxygen facials are said to last about two days; for best results, many spas will recommend a series of six treatments along a six-week timeframe, followed by monthly touch-up visits.

Rosacea Facial
Facials for clients with rosacea are soothing services using products aimed at calming irritation and decreasing the appearance of redness associated with this skin condition. Facials for rosacea are designed to protect, correct, and boost the skin by strengthening delicate capillaries and evening skin tone. Clients should re-mention their facial rosacea to his or her aesthetician and massage therapist upon arrival at the spa. It also may be helpful to seek out spa therapists who have experience dealing with skin affected by rosacea for spa treatments. Daily skin care may also be recommended by a spa therapist or dermatologist. Some mineral makeup lines can actually help in the treatment of rosacea as well; be sure to ask if the spa can recommend certain cosmetic lines that may be helpful in targeting this condition.

Sensitive Skin Facial
Sensitive skin can be caused by a variety of factors like environmental damage, rosacea, acne, laser treatments or by natural disposition. Facials for sensitive skin use gentle procedures and hypoallergenic organic products that are appropriate for irritation-prone skin. If you have sensitive skin, your skin will be purified, cleansed and calm after your facial. Facials for sensitive skin can improve complexion, reduce inflammation and boost your skin’s immunity which will help prevent future irritations. For a sensitive skin facial, expect gentle touch and products with soothing ingredients such as natural fruits and plant elements and sea-derived extracts to be used. Light enzyme peels may be used to exfoliate, followed by a soothing serum and mask. Many sensitive skin facials conclude with a moisturizer formulated to reduce redness and calm inflammation. Because your skin is so sensitive, your aesthetician may avoid doing any extractions. Sensitive skin facial treatments require a personalized approach, so clients should consult with their aesthetician ahead of time about concerns. Rose, chamomile and neroli are great ingredients for sensitive skin facials. Read more about sensitive skin facials in Spafinder's blog post, What is a Sensitive Skin Facial?
