If your skin looks dull and in need of some hydration, you should consider getting a paraffin facial treatment. Paraffin facials are geared to address parched and hydrated skin.
A paraffin facial includes steaming, exfoliation, extraction, massage, application of lotions, and application of a paraffin wax mask treatment. First, your face and neck is thoroughly cleansed to clear the skin of dirt and impurities. Next comes a series of calming massages, followed by more cleansing. Your esthetician will then choose a cream to suit your skin’s needs. A thorough massage works in the cream and makes the skin ready for the paraffin wax treatment. The excess cream is removed from the skin after the massage. The esthetician will then place a gauze over the face. This helps to protect the skin from coming into contact with hot wax. Once the mask fits perfectly and is set, layers of hot wax are then poured on top of the gauze. The heat of this wax opens the skin’s pores, allowing moisturizers to penetrate more easily. It also helps to push the active ingredients used during the facial deep into the skin. Finally, the mask is removed after 20 minutes. When removed, the paraffin gauze takes old skin cells with it, leaving facial skin silky smooth and soft.
Additional benefits of paraffin facials include:
- Brightens complexion due to the warmth of the wax, which increases blood circulation.
- Hydrates skin.
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines by soothing the facial muscles.
- Improves skin appearance with softer and more supple skin.
