If you’re looking to pamper your skin in time for a big event this treatment is the perfect way to get ready for it. A basic skincare routine does a decent job at cleansing the skin, however it will never be able to fully rejuvenate the skin. You need the help of the professionals at Washingtonian Plastic Surgery in order to make that happen. The Fire and Ice Facial is the perfect choice for anyone looking to get glowing skin for a special occasion or even a day to pamper yourself.
What is the Fire and Ice Facial?
This revolutionary procedure combines the positive benefits of two treatments into one professional facial. The heated portion of the facial is used to exfoliate and detoxify the skin before the soothing elements of the cold help revitalize your face. Using two professional facial masks in one treatment allows you to get results that typically can only be achieved using more invasive methods. This safe treatment will soften, brighten and moisturize the skin while also reducing any imperfections on your face.
Prior to the Treatment
You will need to take a few precautions in the days leading up to your Fire and Ice Facial in order to get the best results from the treatment. You must refrain from waxing the face for at least two days. You must avoid using facial products that contain vitamin A or glycolic acid for three days. We will give you detailed guidelines on how to best prepare your skin for the treatment after the booking process is completed.
During the Treatment
The treatment will begin with the fire mask being applied to your face after your skin is cleaned and prepared by one of our professionals. This mask contains vitamin B3, retinol, and several other detoxifying ingredients. You may feel a slight tingling sensation during this portion of the treatment. This part of the facial will only last about five minutes. A cooling mask containing green tea, grapeseed, aloe vera, and other hydrating ingredients is then applied to the skin. You will immediately feel a soothing sensation when the second facial mask is applied. A warm towel is used to clean the skin before a facial cream is used to soothe and protect the skin. This relaxing 45 minute treatment also includes a face, neck and décolleté massage.
After the Treatment
There is absolutely no downtime associated with the Fire and Ice Facial. You will not experience any skin shedding or irritation after leaving our treatment center. The short treatment time and lack of side effects means you can easily fit the Fire and Ice Facial into your schedule at any time. Your skin will have a noticeable glow as soon as the treatment is finished. These results will only improve over the next few hours. You can expect your skin to maintain its improved complexion for roughly one month. Scheduling regular appointments will allow you to maintain this look all year.
