A European facial is one that uses the basic facial elements. The skin is cleansed and exfoliated. Toner may be applied. Steam is used to soften skin and loosen pores. Extractions are performed to unclog pores followed by a facial massage to increase circulation to the face. Our mask are designed for the specific skin type and a moisturizer is used afterward. Typically, our European facial takes between 60 and 90 minutes.

Having said that, you will be happy to know that there are lots of things you can do to speed up your skin’s cellular turnover to achieve glowing skin. We have put together a guide for treatments that will help you retain your radiance. From exfoliating to brightening, we’ve got you covered.

Invest In Brightening Skin Care

Invest in daily skin care products that contain ingredients alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as as lactic and glycolic acid. These work by loosening up the bonds that hold dead skin cells together so you can sweep them away every time you cleanse.

Gentle Peels and European Facial Treatment

Thrive Skin + Wellness offers a wide array of peels that range from very gentle with no downtime – the kind of thing you could do on a lunch break – to more intensive yet incredibly effective treatments performed with a laser. You can view a summary of our peels over here. It is, however, best to consult with one of our medical providers who can assess your needs and recommend a treatment that would suit you best.

Radiant From Within

Eating a diet that’s rich in omega acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will ensure your complexion looks it’s best. Alternatively, you may also want to supplement it with a daily antioxidant that protects your collagen, minimizes the aging effects of the sun and improves the look of pigmentation. One such supplement could be Ovelle D3 by Lamelle.
