TLC Back Facial (50 min)

Radiant skin on the back and shoulders are a vital part of skin health. Our back facials are great for congested skin or for someone getting ready for a big event. The back is like the skin on our face, pores can get clogged with oils and bacteria and thus, allow for black heads, white heads and pimples or acne to be formed. This detoxifying and purifying treatment for your back is designed to remove impurities and toxins, and is ideal for congested skin. Like other facials, having a back facial is relaxing. It is a way of exfoliating an area that you cannot get to on your own. Both men and women enjoy back facial. A back facial is good even if you do not suffer from back acne, it will exfoliate the dead skin and deeply moisturize the skin. Our back facials include deep pore cleansing, steam to lift impurities, gentle extractions and a specialized treatment mask with massage to leave your skin renewed and clarified. One treatment will boost your home care exfoliation regime, and regular treatments will create dramatic improvement. This treatment will leave your back clean, clear, and ready to be seen.

(Extractions are an extra charge for this treatment.)

Extractions

An extraction is the process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore by manual or mechanical means. Extractions are often performed as part of a facial. Most people need at least a couple of extractions during each facial, though you may require more extractions if this is your first facial. Extractions are performed under a magnifying lamp with a bright light, so that your esthetician can easily see the pores that need to be deep-cleansed. Eye pads or protective eyewear will be placed on your eyes to protect them from the bright light. The esthetician wears gloves, and applies gentle pressure around the pore to extract the contents. This may be done using the fingers (wrapped in gauze or cotton) or a special metal implement designed for this purpose.

Comedones (blackheads) are the most common reason for extraction. A blackhead is not necessarily “dirt in the pores” as many people think. It is a pore that has become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells. The dark spot which is visible on the surface of the skin is oil which has oxidized and darkened on exposure to the air, like when you slice an apple and allow it to sit out for a while.

Pustules and pimples can also be extracted, depending on their size and depth. This often requires the use of a lancet to gently lift and remove the very top layer of the pustule to allow the contents to be easily extracted.

Milia are small, white, dome-shaped bumps that can be 1–2 mm in size and typically appear on the nose and cheeks. They are often found in groups and occur when keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin. Milia can be difficult to remove. Treatment entails gently opening the skin overlying the milia and extracting the sebum.

 

Some pores may not be ready to be extracted on the first attempt and may require several treatments before they can be cleared.
