Ashley Hall, Medical Aesthetician
Hi everyone! Today we are talking with Ashley Hall in our Orem location about the facials we offer and what they do! We offer three different facials: Amara Signature Facial, Deep Pore Facial and European Facial. We also offer microneedling for the face! Let’s dive into what each facial can do for you!
Amara Signature Facial
The Amara Signature Facial is an introductory facial that gives our guest an idea of what kind of skin type they have. It comes with skin consultation, which is an opportunity to go over their skin goals and come up with a skincare plan with the licensed esthetician.
Also included in the facial is a basic chemical peel or microdermabrasion which gives the esthetician a good idea of how the guest’s skin responds to treatment.
High frequency massage is used during the facial so this gives a bit of lymphatic drainage. Lymph nodes are where a lot of the body’s toxins and waste are stored so it is nice to get some of that out of the system.
We recommend this facial for all skin types and especially for anyone who wants a skin consult and treatment plan to start their skincare journey.
We definitely recommend sunscreen after this facial as the skin will be very sensitive from the chemical peel or microdermabrasion.
Deep Pore Facial
The Deep Pore Facial is more of an exfoliating facial. It is great for those who are acne prone skin, oily or congested through t-zone with whiteheads and blackheads. It’s great for that squeaky clean feeling
The Deep Pore Facial includes extractions, which are different type of implementations to remove p. bacterium which causes acne.
The European Facial is similar to the Amara Signature Facial. It is also an introductory facial. It includes two masks which are discussed previously in order to cater to individual based on wants and needs.
This facial also gives the guest and esthetician an opportunity to consult and learn more about the guest’s skin texture and treatment plan. The esthetician will be touching and washing the face so they will be feeling texture and raw tone of the skin without dirt and debris. This means a more accurate assessment can be done.
The European Facial is great for any skin type as well. It also comes with massage which is good for relaxation.
Microneedling is a resurfacing treatment. It is great for anyone with acne scarring, enlarged pores and/or is congested through their nose area with blackheads. It also targets fine lines and wrinkles by creating micro-wounds which helps rebuild collagen and elastin.
This treatment is good for all skin types, though it is catered toward those with texture concern. We recommend at least one a year for anyone to help keep collagen and elastin in the skin and keeping skin smooth.
A Few No-Nos
If you are on Accutane, we recommend you do not have any facial treatments. The ingredients we use are highly active and do not apply to the Accutane restrictions. We also do not treat any time there’s compromised skin barriers such as sunburns above grade two, cold sores, open wounds, etc.
