Facials are far more than a wonderful, pampering spa service that we all love to receive every now and again. Actually, a spa facial does for your face what a dental cleaning does for your teeth–it cleans more deeply and thoroughly than you can at home, allowing for better results and deeper product absorption. For this and many other reasons, it is highly recommended that you receive a professional spa facial every now and again.
Any facial service you receive at Botanica Day Spa will be incredibly relaxing, invigorating, and beneficial, but there are ways to elevate this experience even further by truly customizing your treatment to your skin’s specific needs. This is the goal of the Botanica Signature Facial, the absolute best of the best that we have to offer in facial services.
What the Botanica Signature Facial Includes
The Botanica Signature Facial is a comprehensive treatment session that includes deep cleansing, dermaplaning or microdermabrasion, a nourishing booster, microcurrent for facial muscle toning, a custom mask, and décolleté and hand treatment. The customized aspects of the signature facial are designed to ensure that your skin receives the exact treatment and nutrients it needs to address issues like skin congestion, lack of radiance, skin sensitivity, fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity and firmness. This will help to make your skin look healthier and more youthful.
The Botanica Signature Facial works beautifully for all skin types, with the exception of ultra-sensitive or acne-ridden skin. Prior to treatment, you will undergo a thorough evaluation so that your facialist understands your exact needs, expectations and skin type. This is a very good time to ask any questions that you may have and to be very clear about your skincare concerns so that the aesthetician knows exactly what should be addressed during the facial. This will better allow you to fully relax during your treatment, enjoying the peaceful environment and gentle music.
Your Botanica Signature Facial will begin with a deep pore cleansing to help remove the toxins and oils that are trapped on your skin. Your aesthetician may recommend a peel to help if your skin’s condition indicates that this will be beneficial. After your deep pore cleansing, and depending on your specific skincare needs and your preferences, you will then receive either dermaplaning or microdermabrasion for the purpose of achieving a deep exfoliation.
Dermaplaning is a procedure wherein a sterile scalpel is used to gently shave the surface of the skin, removing the top layer of skin and fine hair there. Performed by trained, experienced aestheticians, this procedure is safe, painless, and highly effective at helping to fully exfoliate the skin of the face. It can also stimulate the skin’s natural cell regeneration process and allow beauty products to better penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in healthier, brighter skin.
Microdermabrasion is a procedure where non-chemical microcrystals are used to help remove the top layer of dry, dead skin cells and so reveal the healthier, more youthful skin underneath. It encourages the production of new skin cells as well as higher levels of collagen and elastin. Microdermabrasion can be immensely helpful in countering fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, and even skin texture issues. It is ideal for healthy adults who only suffer from minor skin conditions and imperfections.
Following your dermaplaning or microdermabrasion treatment, a nourishing booster is applied to help hydrate and nourish your skin at the deepest levels possible. A microcurrent is used to mirror your body’s own natural currents, which trigger desirable chemical reactions at the cellular level so as to enhance your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, stimulate blood circulation, and tone the muscles of your face. This increased blood flow and firmness helps your skin to look more youthful and healthy.
Finally, a custom mask is applied and allowed to sit while you receive a décolleté. By the time your Botanica Signature Facial comes to an end, you are in a state of total relaxation, your body and mind are thoroughly calmed, and your face is fully rejuvenated. You will continue to experience the wonderful benefits of this treatment for days and even weeks, but we completely understand if you cannot wait to stop by and indulge again–and soon.
