The LaVida Signature Facial is a therapeutic skin treatment tailored to the needs of each guest – treating you like the individual that you are! This custom facial addresses issues such as skin congestion, lack of radiance, skin sensitivity, fine lines, and wrinkles, as well as loss of firmness.
Our LaVida Signature Facial begins with a guest evaluation, so the Esthetician understands the needs, expectations, and skin type of the guest and can best determine the custom products and services that will most benefit that guest. During this time of consultation, guests can make special requests or ask any questions they may have about the process so that the Esthetician can clarify and try to accommodate any special needs.
The facial includes the following steps: Cleanse, Exfoliate, Extract, Treatment/Masque, and Moisturize. Throughout the service, the Esthetician will also do light facial massages, along with neck and shoulder massage while the treatment works to revive your skin. .This is an excellent service for all skin types, and an ideal start to a personalized monthly skincare regimen to maintain healthy skin.
The first step in the LaVida Signature Facial is a Cleanse, which removes the normal pollutants and oils that a guest’s skin comes in contact with every day. The Esthetician may have several layers of cleansing that need to be done, all while stimulating the skin through light facial massage.
Once the face, neck, and decollete area is cleansed, the Esthetician will exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin cells to allow the following treatment to penetrate the skin further.
Following exfoliation, the skin will be primed for extraction. The Esthetician will use a sanitized tool or their fingers to gently extract any build-up in the pores.
Depending on skin type and concerns, a treatment or masque will be selected to help the guest reach their skincare goals. For example, if a guest is concerned with dry skin, the Esthetician will recommend a highly moisturizing masque. This process is also accompanied with steam, which promotes the opening of pores. While the treatment or masque absorbs into the skin for several minutes, a neck and shoulder massage will be performed for ultimate relaxation.
The final step of the LaVida Signature Facial is to moisturize the skin. After the process of cleansing and treating the skin, it is crucial to protect the pores from further pollutants. Depending on the time of day, the Esthetician may use a moisturizer with SPF, to further protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
The Esthetician will make recommendations for an at-home regimen to continue the progress that has been made during the facial. Ensuring a healthy skincare routine at home is crucial to continuing the benefits of regular facials!
