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.

Glowing Skin and Why Exfoliation Is Important

Regular exfoliation at home is key to radiance, but you could also try an in-office treatment to instantly brighten up your skin. One of many options is microdermabrasion. A quick, no downtime procedure, it involves gently polishing your skin with an air gun spray of ultra-fine crystals. This removes the outermost layers of the skin to reveal a brighter-looking complexion.

Take advantage of our European facial with Microderm special offer this month. Our European facial treatment starts with a cleansing of the face to remove any oils makeup and debris. After a steam treatment, up to three masques, which are chosen specifically for your needs, are applied to hydrate, exfoliate and nourish your skin plus microdermabrasion for for radiant results!

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.
