There are many ways to pamper yourself when you go to the salon. This brief article is a guide to the different forms of facial treatments that are available to you. Some of them are quite simple, much like an intense facial. Others are more complicated and require a brief recovery time. So, before your next trip to the salon, read up on these three skin treatments.
A chemical peel is the simplest of all of the facial treatments you can get. In fact, many people end up doing these treatments at home with over-the-counter products. However, if you've never done this before, it might be wise to simply stick with using a professional. The spa workers will have the skills and experience in using the chemicals and won't use too much, which might result in some very unpleasant burning sensations. A chemical peel will leave your face feeling tight, so be prepared for some discomfort at first.
Another facial treatment that you can get at the salon is a microdermabrasion. This is a treatment where the salon worker will use a small instrument that removes the surface layer of dead skin off of your face. It is accomplished by the use of tiny crystals that are abrasives and remove the dead skin. The same tool that delivers the crystals to the surface of the skin also vacuums the crystals and dead skin off the surface of the face. This treatment should be done in a spa by a trained skincare worker so that there is no injury to the skin.
After the treatment, it is common for your face to be a bit sore and red. This will pass in a few hours though. It is important to properly moisturize your skin after you get a microdermabrasion treatment, so make sure to bring extra moisturizer with you to use after you leave the spa.
Finally, one of the most popular facial treatments you can get at the salon is botox. This is a treatment that uses a natural toxin to cause a slight paralysis in the skin, which in effect removes wrinkles for a time being. This is one facial treatment that you must get at a salon. It's very irresponsible to seek out home botox parties, which were all the rage for a few years. While it might save you some money, the end results can end up disfiguring your face. So, stick with a professional service and go to a salon.
