Facial Frequency: How often is good?

Facial Frequency: How Often Should You Receive a Facial?

When it comes to Facial Frequency, is receiving a facial once a month enough?
To me, the answer varies.  For the client who just loves the “spa-ahh” environment, it’s a great way to treat one’s self along with getting the benefits of treating the skin. 

 

DEEP CLARIFYING FACIAL

For a client who has a bit of congestion or chronic breakouts (including acne), I’d recommend the Deep Clarifying facial weekly. A gentle exfoliant is used along with refining and purifying masks that soften and detox the skin along with extractions, which play a big part in the process of “cleaning-out-the-skin”. Receiving the Deep Clarifying weekly allows for your Esthetician to see how your skin reacts to products and how your skin is changing. Whenever this is achieved  you may start to receive a facial every 3-4 weeks. Of course if you cannot do this, Esthetician’s are here to help educate you by providing a personalized prescription card of product recommendations along with how and when to use these treatments. But I do not recommend self-extracting. You can damage the skin and leave scarring if you do not perform them properly. You have to know what you can and cannot touch. Leave it to the experts!  

AGE DEFYING ANTIOXIDANT FACIAL
Facial Frequency - Galvanic Treatment - Le Reve SpaMoving onto our famous Age-Defying Facial. This one does it all! In this treatment, we do a thorough cleanse along with a powerful enzyme that contains yam and pumpkin puree that exfoliates, stimulates collagen production and evens skin tone. Now every client’s skin is different so the masks we use will be different for everyone. But one thing that is the same is the use of the Galvanic Treatment over these masks. If you’ve received the Age-Defying before and aren’t sure what this is and does, here’s an explanation:
 Galvanic current is a continuous electric current that flows in one direction. During the first mask, we are “pre-treating” with the Galvanic instrument on a negative charge. Since like charges repel each other, the negative charge of the Galvanic Instrument repels or pushes the mask into the skin. The purifying ingredients bind with impurities in the skin causing them to have a negative charge.
  During the second mask, both the mask and the Galvanic instrument are positively charged. These positive charges repel each other, helping deliver the ingredients deeper into the skin. The positively charged galvanic instrument also attracts the remaining negatively charged impurities from the first mask or (pre-treat cycle), drawing them out of the skin to give your skin a fresher, more vibrant look. A Galvanic treatment can enhance the delivery of certain key ingredients for up to 24 hours. Most clients receive this facial once a month, however in my opinion, every two weeks would be ideal to achieve desired results much faster. 
MIND & BODY FACIAL
All our facials are super, uber relaxig no matter what you are doing as far as treatment. We offer 3 other facials that help with any and all skin concerns but focus more on relaxation. The Mind and Body Facial or the deluxe facial, as I call it, helps to balance the Chakras of the body and utilizes hot stones on the neck, shoulders, hands and feet! Wow right?! 

LE REVE HYDRATING FACIAL
Don’t let me forget our Signature Le Reve Facial that focuses on pure hydration but not without putting you practically to sleep with the hand and foot coconut treatment at the start of the facial. Literally, head to toe hydration. 🙂

MINI REFRESHER FACIAL
For those with less than a lunch hour of availability our Mini Refresher Facial is the perfect facial for you! While this facial does not provide extractions, it is the best at topically treating all skin conditions when given a limited amount of time. Your esthetician will probably set up a series to help you reach any skin care goals you may have which is an excellent choice for this relaxing facial experience.

So there you have it, we have a facial for everyone. Weather you want to just be pampered or are struggling finding confidence in your skin, Le Reve is here to help!
Life gets busy and sometimes stressful but dont’ forget to take care of yourself once in a while. Do little things for yourself, it’s so important. 
Have a beautiful day and look forward to seeing you at Le Reve!

Deep Tissue Massage – Santa Barbara

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep-Tissue-le reve spa What you should know before booking a deep tissue massage

Deep Tissue Massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is also not uncommon for receivers of Deep Tissue Massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two.

deep tissue massage - le reve spaDeep tissue work varies greatly. What one calls deep tissue another will call light. When receiving deep tissue work it is important to communicate what you are feeling. How does deep tissue massage work? When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesion to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. Will deep tissue massage hurt? At certain points during the massage, most people find there is usually some discomfort and pain. It is important to tell the massage therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range. There is usually some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. The massage therapist may recommend applying ice to the area after the massage.
 What conditions is deep tissue massage used for? Unlike classic massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as:
  • Chronic pain limited mobility
  • Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
  • Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Postural problems
  • Osteoarthritis pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle tension or spasm
According to the August 2005 issue of Consumer Reports magazine, 34,000 people ranked deep tissue massage more effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain than physical therapy, exercise, prescription medications, chiropractic, acupuncture, diet, glucosamine, and over-the-counter drugs. Deep tissue massage also received a top ranking for fibromyalgia pain. People often notice improved range of motion immediately after a deep tissue massage.
I feel so privileged to have such a caring and talented staff at Le Reve. Our Massage Therapist are absolutely exceptional. So whether you are needing a relaxing or a deeper more therapeutic type of massage Le Reve has you covered. Be sure to check out our tweets because every week I tweet a special Spa Offering and you could get a 1 1/2 hour massage for the price of a 1hour.
See you at the spa!
