This month, I would like to talk about facials at my practice. They are performed by my therapist Yana and are such a wonderful option when it comes to taking care of your skin and making sure you are giving it a great treatment with long-term benefits.
I will be talking about the very nature of facials and why they make such a huge difference to the quality of your skin!

I hope you enjoy what follows!
“Yana, the therapist, often recommends that you come for a professional facial every 4-6 weeks in order to target skin issues specific to you”
What are facials?
A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin, especially when it’s given by an experienced, knowledgeable therapist like Yana.
- Even tone and PH balance of skin
- Hydrating effect
- Anti-ageing benefits
Facials are a wonderful option when it comes to occasional skincare for they encourage hydration, which is a key factor when it comes to ageing.
These are perfect treatment options for cosmetic maintenance and to enhance your facelift results.
Something to remember…
Yana can treat various skin problems on the face, neck and décolleté with a facial designed for your skin type. But then going for a facial once in a while is not enough for your skin to look great all year long.
How is a facial performed?
How will Yana conduct the facial consultation?
A facial should begin with a consultation. Yana will have you fill out a form that has questions about your skin concerns, your diet, how much water you drink, drugs and supplements you take, and products you are currently using.
Before starting the facial treatment Yana will cover your eyes and looks at your skin through a brightly lit magnifying lamp.
She will then determine your basic skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive or normal) and skin conditions (acne, blackheads, whiteheads, aging, sun-damage, dehydration, etc.) after that she will choose the appropriate products and treatments.
At the end of the facial, Yana will most likely apply a toner/serum or/and moisturizer and sunscreen if it is daytime. She will also end the session by telling you how you can take better care of your skin and she will recommend some products that will help the results from the facial last longer.
The B.T Micro device
The bt-micro™ is the latest rage in hand held professional technology and combines ultrasonic peeling with patented micro current and ultrasound penetration capabilities. It is a wonderful tool that will leave you with a cleaner, firmer skin. This is the perfect addition to our facial treatment regime.
The BT-micro™ is applied to the skin in upward, peeling motions. The exfoliation process with the BT-micro™ should take no more than 4-6 minutes. The results are amazingly clear and smooth skin that is ready to accept strategic topical products!
