Facials Q & A

What is a professional facial?

A professional facial provides a chance for you to experience deep cleansing, clarifying, and moisturizing of your complexion. During a facial, a gentle cleanser is applied to your skin. Exfoliation, extractions, and massage follow. The technician from Island Lotus Health & Wellness then applies specialized ingredients and formulas to address specific concerns.

What types of skin concerns can be addressed with a facial?

A facial boosts the overall health of your skin. At Island Lotus Health & Wellness, you can experience facials and masks that:

  • Detoxify
  • Retexturize
  • Clarify
  • Revitalize
  • Hydrate

Facials can also deeply cleanse your pores to create a clearer complexion.

What types of ingredients are included in facials and masks?

The ingredients applied to your skin depend on the goals of the facial. For revitalizing and detoxifying, you may be treated with a combination of natural ingredients, such as honey, green tea, papaya extracts, and sugar cane extracts.

If your goal is to clarify your skin, your facial may include salicylic acid and antioxidants from wild and sweet cherry extracts and cascarilla bark. Talk to Serena and Dr. Lucas about exactly which ingredients are right for your skin type, skin concerns, and desired outcome.

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel involves the application of chemical compounds that cause your skin to slough and eventually peel off, revealing a fresh, new layer of healthy cells. You get skin with a smoother texture and improved tone. At Island Lotus Health & Wellness, only the safest and most effective chemical peels are offered using the PCA SkinⓇ professional line of products. Your chemical peel’s intensity and ingredients are customized to meet your unique skin needs.

What are retinoid treatments?

A retinoid peel helps your skin to dramatically exfoliate, so you get a brighter complexion with less discoloration. Overall, retinoid treatments result in a smoother, more even skin tone.

If you have moderate-to-severe discoloration and signs of aging with a dull complexion, a 6% retinol peel may be appropriate. If you’re in need of general rejuvenation, a 4% pure retinol peel may be best. These peels are only available through a physician’s office, so Dr. Lucas and Serena can help guide you to the right type.
