It’s also much more difficult to add essential oils.

Gel are great for many massage techniques. Does not require a lot of re-application. They also provide the best glide effect during the massage, and a long, flowing massage technique will benefit from a gel. Gels are perfect for hairy clients or clients with very dry skin. Oily skin clients prefer Gel such as aloe vera. Too much gel may result in a sticky feel and voluminous skin.

Always chose the above to suit the clients skin type. Less is more as adding too much may prevent the face from absorbing more effective serums after this step like the masque etc. A Tip is to add some water to make a thinner liquid. Creativity is yours to explore.

AVOID EYE AREA ! Watch Clients face carefully. Watch for redness and wash off immediately if needed until no tingling.

Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid, or AHA, used for chemical exfoliation of the skin. AHAs dissolve the bonds that hold dull, dead skin cells together, so they gently shed, revealing brighter, smoother skin underneath.Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane, and is an expert favorite for treating signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, post-sun exposure, acne, and acne scars.

Side effects can include slight tingling or burning, but they should subside quickly. Professional peel side effects can include redness, dryness, itching or irritation as well as swelling, tightness, peeling or scabbing. With 2-3 days, skin may look flaky or tan as the outermost surface peels off to make room for more radiant, new skin. You may also notice temporarily more pronounced discoloration or age spots as they rise to the skin’s surface before getting sloughed away.

Wash your face with cool water. Warm or hot water might not feel as good as cool or cold water, which can help soothe post-peel sensations.

Moisturize and hydrate. Since peels can temporarily compromise your skin’s protective barrier, it’s important to reinforce that barrier with a medium-to-thick moisturizer. Also, drink more water to help avoid dehydration, which could make your skin feel tight.

Apply sunscreen with SPF30 or more. Your skin is more delicate after a peel, so avoid direct sun exposure, which can lead to even more visible signs of skin aging. If you must be exposed, use a Broad Spectrum physical sunscreen.

Avoid strenuous workouts, dry saunas and steam rooms. Increased blood circulation to the face can intensify warming, tingling, itching, redness or other uncomfortable side effects on freshly peeled skin. Skip such activities on the day you use a peel.

Don’t over-exfoliate. Peels are maximum-strength exfoliants, so you don’t need to use a separate exfoliant (like a scrub, brush or exfoliating cleanser) within 3-4 days of your peel. Over-exfoliating can lead to more redness or sensitivity, so wait until your skin feels up to it.

Once your skin feels “back to normal” after a peel, it’s generally considered OK to resume your normal skin care regimen. Insist to wear sunblock UVA UVB Broad spectrum. Remember your calming technique, use it here too if needed.

Starting with Eye Tool adding eye serum around the eyes gently. Followed by face tool. Make sure the tool is warm and not hot. Always check with client if they are feeling comfortable. Eye Tool can be used for the nose and lips.

Adding whitening ampoule or any serums that client needs, massage into face with lifting upward movements to model the face and lift the face. Make sure the tool is vibrating and smooth to glide on the face.

The face should feel warm and you can show the client the face is lifted. Do half of the face to show the client the difference.

Light therapy, or LED treatments have been around for over 30 years and to help with tissue healing and repair. Treating acne, regulating natural oil production, stimulating collagen and elastin and minimising redness and wrinkles. Certain wavelengths have even been shown to reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone.

Red: The majority of at-home LED masks offer a red light setting. At the lighter end of the spectrum, red light works to soothe inflammation and redness, while deeper shades penetrate the skin further to prompt cellular repair and circulation, resulting in a plumper, more vibrant complexion.

Blue: This antibacterial light is used to kill the bacteria that leads to breakouts, making it ideal for treating acne-prone skin. Blue light also helps purify the skin and regulate oil glands.

Amber: Less common in at-home devices, this shade works to revitalise the skin, reducing any swelling and increasing radiance.

Infrared: Invisible to the naked eye, this light penetrates deeper than any other colour in the spectrum. It combats the signs of ageing by replenishing dermal and epidermal cells, stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin, and speeds up the recovery process.

Apply mask and add on LED for 10-20 mins.  For powder mask, mix 30gms with rose toner or water to a non drip consistency. You can use a gauze over the mask if needed to peel off easily. Or apply mask directly on the face and wash off by using a ball of gauze dipped in water to wipe away mask.

The safe, gentle oscillating and oxygenating power of high frequency electrical current has been shown to enhance blood circulation, increase collagen and elastin production, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells and improve skin care product absorption.

High-frequency treatments kill bacteria and reduce inflammation, hence the acne-fighting benefits.

The primary action of high-frequency current is thermal (heat producing) and oxygen creating which assists in killing stubborn acne bacteria under the skin. Due to the rapid rate of oscillation, it also works to tone the skin and tighten pores, therefore, making it a perfect Treatment Enhancement to any facial.

Always closing a facial is an important step. However do note on the contraindication for the use of facial machines and tools.

For sanitisation - briefly go over face.

For acne - use spot and tongue tool to tap about 5 to 10 times.

Always watch the skin cells, stop once you see drying of cells.

Do not put in one spot. Always tap lightly.

Important note : Dry area, Dry feet. Dry hands. Dry Hair.  If you touch the client while using HF on the skin, the client may experience a shock.  Therefore starting on smaller level and always check with your client for any discomfort.

This tool can be used on hair to help folicle infection too with use of the above facial techniques like glycolic hyaluronic acid.

Final Step : Apply some moisturiser with sun block. Provide clients with an after care advise.

Always look forward to solving different skin type conditions and clients will come back thanking you. Always provide the best luxury services.

Final - Closing of Facial and High Frequency

Clients are always very interested to have a small conversation after facial while having their herbal tea, water or small serving of fruits. They will be relaxed and happy when you have done a good job for them. Always take this time to give them "After Care"  solutions including correcting the products they are currently using if needed.

Example: A client comes in for a recurring acne problem that they cannot resolve for 20 years. (Yes, I do have clients like that). Skin consultation and also during the cleansing stage continue to access the skin and their skin products. It is from here and over the next few sessions you will be adding and minus skin products to come to the right combination for this client. It does not mean 1 size fits all. When you recommend even the change of 1 cleanser with PH5 or 1 sunblock with UVA UVB you can see the client's face start to improve.

Do not be discourage if clients says they have acne breakout after your facial. With a good job done through skin care and a complete and great care facial, the detox stage will be over fast and you be on your next stage of treatment plan to help your client reach their wish list. I have personally told my clients not to give up.

Use this valuable time to let them know when to return for a followup session.
