After your 1st visit with us, level 1 facials are an option of where you can lead onto.
This facial is fully customised to your main concerns. Whether it be extractions or relaxation. This facial is interchangeable between being only about extractions (up to 40mins if needed) to a mixture of extractions, mask and massage depending on your skin concerns.
Once you are in one of our beautiful treatment rooms, snuggled under a doona in one of our luxurious beds, we will commence with a double cleanse to ensure your skin is completely clean. Then we will examine your skin under a magnifying lamp to ensure we can see everything that is happening with your complexion.
Next step is exfoliation which is tailored to your skin type – this might be an enzyme/scrub or a gentle buff. Then it’s time for a relaxing steam to ensure we soften any blackheads – as this will help the extractions to come out more easily.
If extractions are your focus
I won’t lie, the extraction process can be a little uncomfortable. But for people who have acne and blackheads, it is a necessary process and your skin will reap the rewards. We will work with you as to how much you can cope with – for super-sensitive skin we are extra-gentle and avoid areas where the skin is not strong enough.
At Shine, when it comes to extractions we only use tissues and our fingers. We are often asked whether we use those “pimple-popping” metal tools – we don’t! We believe they are too harsh on your skin and you can’t feel how much pressure you are applying, which can cause bruising, scarring or more damage to the skin. Touch is the best gauge.
Depending on time we may also include a massage and/or a treatment mask as part of the session.
Your extraction facial is finished off with some high frequency therapy. This is a little wonder tool that uses gentle electricity to convert to ozone to kill bacteria, heal your skin faster and reduce your chances of another break-out.
The facial ends with a selection of serums, moisturiser and sunscreen massaged into your skin to ensure your skin’s hydration and condition is at its best.
If extractions are not your focus
If you only have a small amount of extractions, then this facial can also be perfect, we will do what is needed to achieve clear skin (or even none if they aren’t needed) then will proceed with a shoulder and face massage and finish off with mask and scalp massage.
Not all our facials are the same, we will always chat to you, assess your skin on the day and give you advice on how to achieve your best skin.
