Often, combinations of products and services can optimize results, and that holds true in facial services. Not only do facials soothe and pamper, but they can offer very concrete results depending on your needs and skin type.

The Superglo Facial offered here at Sacred Hour is one example of a combined set of services aimed at getting you results. It is great for people who notice dry, dull skin or premature aging — fine lines, light wrinkles, and dark spots.

To start, the aesthetician will remove your makeup, and place you under the steamer which warms the skin, opens pores, loosens dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria in preparation for exfoliation, and increases perspiration, which helps flush out toxins. Steaming also stimulates blood circulation which carries oxygen and nutrients to the skin’s surface.

After the steam, the aesthetician will apply a peel appropriate for your skin type and needs. This will penetrate the skin and work to loosen and dissolve dead skin cells.

After the peel, microdermabrasion is performed to remove the dead skin cells and stimulate collagen development. Combining the peel with the microdermabrasion provides a deeper, more significant result than either one alone. The outer layer of the skin is removed reducing the appearance of fine lines, light scarring, and dark spots. Your skin will appear more vibrant and with build-up removed, your moisturizers and serums will penetrate more fully and effectively.

The aesthetician will extract impurities such as blackheads and milia from the pores, which are simply trapped oil and keratin. With clear pores and a smooth canvas, your face is ready for a mask to calm and re-hydrate the skin. Your facial will finish with a serum or moisturizer and eye cream to lock in moisture.

Your aesthetician can work with  you to develop a skincare routine that will help you benefit from your facial and maintain the best results. An ideal routine would include a Superglo facial every four to eight weeks.
