Bespoke Facial at Wandsworth Aesthetics
Updated: Apr 9
We have a variety of facials and peels at Wadsworth Aesthetics including a bespoke Signature Facial, Anti-Aging Rejuvenate and Glow Facial and Vitamin C infusion facial. We are located on Old York Road in the heart of Wandsworth Town. We get asked a lot about how does a facial cleansing treatment work? The required time for our facials is 1 hour as we like you to relax and we can do a thorough cleansing and toning treatment.
Facial skin assessment
After you have arrived and made yourself comfortable, our therapist will use a lamp to perform a skin assessment examining what kind of skin you have, looking for oil secretion, blackheads and acne.
Facial cleansing routine
Once we have completed the assessment, we can start preparation of the skin for the facial. We will cleanse the face, remove make-up, dirt, dust and sweat accumulated during the day from your face with face cleanser.
Next comes the exfoliation of the facial skin, here you can choose granular mechanical or enzymatic peeling. If you choose the mechanical exfoliator, the granules in it remove the dead skin cells, while the enzyme version creates a chemical reaction in your skin and dissolves the skin cells. Restoring the pH value of facial skin is vital. Toning exfoliation is always followed by a tonic wipe to restore the skin's pH value.
Pampering the face, neck and décolletage, a massage will soften your skin even more, and a good relaxing massage never hurts the body and soul.
Steaming the face is necessary so that your skin softens sufficiently, and the cleansing treatment can be performed easily and well.
After steaming, we get to the real facial cleansing, by performing a professional removal of blackheads and acne.
Porous astringent wrap
After the cleansing, a pore-tightening and anti-inflammatory wrap/ mask is used. This is applied to your face with a soft brush and left on for at least 10-15 minutes. At the end of the facial cleansing treatment, we will treat your skin with a skin regenerating cream/ serum.
Home Care Advice
After the facial cleansing treatment, your skin is still sensitive, but don't worry, it will pass. Please try to also follow the following rules: it is important not to use a sunbed or sunbathe and avoid the swimming pool after cleansing your face. Do not use foundation right after cleansing your face, as you will clog your cleansed pores.
