Facials & Facial Treatments – Facts & Cost

Why get a facial? If your face is too dry or oily, or you're constantly looking for ways to cover up unsightly facial blemishes, a facial may help.

A facial is a deep cleansing treatment applied to the face. Facials are designed to eliminate clogged pores, blackheads, and other impurities affecting the appearance and overall health of the skin. Facial treatments incorporate a variety of grooming steps that can include the use of creams, masks, peels, steam, exfoliation, extraction, lotions, and massage.

Facials were once thought to be a treatment only for women, but now men get facials, too. Facials are recommended once every four to six weeks in order to maintain the health and beauty of the skin.

Facial Cost

Facial costs vary, depending on a number of factors. Facials have a base cost of approximately $75, but this varies by location and the types of services performed.

The cost of a facial is typically less when performed as part of a more elaborate spa treatment that includes procedures like body wraps, massage, waxing and aromatherapy.
