How It Works

We customize our facials at Nua Medical Spa to your specific needs. After analyzing your skin, your esthetician will design a facial catered to you. Most facials include cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, massage, and application of serums and moisturizers.

The Science Behind The Treatment

Simply being relaxed and having a facial can be beneficial to your skin’s health. Physical manipulation combined with a warm, soothing setting helps to relax the muscles and bring blood flow into the face. With increased blood flow comes needed nutrients and drainage of the lymphatic system.

Exfoliation allows for the removal of dirt, clogged pores, dead skin and bacteria from the skin. It also stimulates growth of collagen and elastin, two key ingredients in keeping the skin looking youthful and full.

If you have further questions about how facials work and what benefits you would see, schedule an consultation with one of our estheticians.

How to Prepare

Let your provider know before your appointment if you have a history of cold sores or allergies/sensitivities to any products. Be sure to avoid wearing makeup that is difficult to remove with a gentle cleanser or wipe.

What to Expect

Before you arrive

Before your procedure, you will be brought into a private room where you can get comfortable. You will be asked to remove any layered clothing, as your facial includes a chest and neck massage. After you and your esthetician review what goals you would like to achieve, the lights are lowered, the bed warmer turned on, and the procedure begins. Facials are your time to relax and unwind. Many clients find them so relaxing that they fall asleep during the procedure.

After Treatment

After your procedure, your skin should feel and look revitalized, well-moisturized and brighter. There is no down-time associated with facials, although we recommend that you take advantage of the relaxation by doing something you love, whether it be a hike or sitting down with a warm cup of tea.

What It Will Feel Like

Facials are meant to be a relaxing experience. Most of the products being used are gentle and soothing to the skin. However, everyone’s skin is different and some may experience a slight tingling sensation when an enzyme or a particular mask is applied. Tingling during these steps is very normal and only lasts a short period of time.

If you are looking to incorporate another procedure during your facial, please consult your esthetician.

Post-procedure Care

After your facial, your skin will feel refreshed and revitalized. There is little to no aftercare associated with facials, although this can vary depending on your individual needs and goals. If you are interested in discussing a skincare routine that will help to maximize and maintain the results of the facial, feel free to consult your esthetician or another staff member. We at Nua are always happy to discuss products that will get you the results (and the skin!) that you want.
