“Maskne” Facial

Many of us have had to make several lifestyle changes over the past 6 months due to covid-19. One of the most common, wearing a mask. We are now required to not only wear masks while we work long hours, but basically anywhere you go now in public. Though these masks are for our general health and safety, they can still have a negative effect on our skin. Some may sweat in their mask during a work day or have a more physical job causing the mask to constantly rub against their skin. Both of these can cause skin irritation, mainly around the mouth and chin area. In some cases, even on your cheeks or around your nose. These pesky masks are giving people acne that have never dealt with acne their whole life. I like to refer to this as “maskne.” This sort of break out gets a special name because in most cases this does not mean you’re actually suffering from acne. Sweat trapped underneath your mask can cause your pores to fill with dirt and gunk. On top of the mask rubbing against these infected pores, this is calling for bumpy irritated skin. We now have a specifically designed facial to treat this type of breakout, focusing on the chin and mouth area. This facial treatment should help clean out any sweat-filled pores, cool any irritated skin, and shrink any visible bumps or breakouts. Many of us don’t like wearing these masks period, but now that we are seeing signs of “maskne” it’s even more frustrating to wear them. We are here to help! Schedule a 45 minute “Maskne” facial at Essential Kneads today. We will have you feeling confident, blemish free and hopefully less dreadful about having to wear a mask everyday!

Dermaplaning Facial

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique that removes the outer layer of the skin. This can help diminish uneven skin tone, wrinkles, fine lines and light acne scarring. This procedure also removes vellus hair, otherwise known as “peach fuzz.” Which means smoother makeup application and deep product absorption. Although dermaplaning is for majority skin types, it is not recommended for acne prone or sensitive skin. A client should receive dermaplaning every 3 to 4 weeks for best results.

Back Facial

A back facial is a treatment that consists of deep cleansing, exfoliation, and extractions.

In a back facial, creams and possibly steam will be used to exfoliate and clean your skin before extracting oil and debris. This is followed by a mask specifically targeted at your skin type.

Back facials are, for the most part, a painless extraction process. The facial typically begins with a gentle steaming to open pores, helping to deep clean and exfoliation the skin. Some spas also offer a relaxing neck, back, and shoulder massage.

Back facials can be beneficial in cleansing those tough-to-reach spots, targeting a variety of skincare needs such as clogged pores, back acne, and dehydrated skin. This treatment is very similar to traditional techniques used while performing treatments on the face. Back facials are particularly fitting treatments during bathing suit season or for people who suffer from bacne. (Performed by our Licensed Estheticians)

Body Polish

A body polish or scrub is a treatment that is basically a facial for the body: It exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it smooth and soft. A body scrub is done with an abrasive material such as sea salt or sugar mixed with some kind of massage oil. Using a body scrub regularly will help make your skin look more vibrant and youthful. Benefits of body scrubs are the removal of dead skin cells, and making it easier for the skin's pores to absorb a moisturizer leaving the healthy skin hydrated.

Paraffin Treatment

If you are looking to maintain your healthy skin or heal dry and cracked hands and feet, the cosmetic and healing benefits of a paraffin treatment are numerous. The removal of dead skin cells will rejuvenate the appearance of your skin and make your hands and feet feel silky and smooth. Paraffin is a natural emollient so it helps penetrate moisture into your skin, lasting long after the treatment is complete. A paraffin treatment creates a sort of barrier on your skin that helps retain the oils that your body naturally produces. This treatment can also aid in treating conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. A wax treatment acts as a type of heat therapy that helps relieve these conditions by increasing blood flow, relaxing muscles and reducing stiffness in joints. It can also help with lowering fluid retention and flushing toxins, which can reduce swelling. (Performed by our Licensed Massage Therapists and Estheticians)

Eye Lash Extenstions

Cosmetic application of individual eyelashes, usually made out of synthetic hair. This service takes 1.5-2 hours depending on the amount of your natural lashes.

These individual lash extensions are used to enhance the length, curl, fullness, and thickness of natural eyelashes.

Tweezer utensils are used to apply the lashes with a strong adhesive. You then will only need to come back for a “lash fill”, which will replace any missing lashes. This generally takes 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on how many need replaced. A 'lash fill' is recommended every 2-3 weeks.

Full Set (Up to 2 hours needed) - $125
Lash Fill (Up to 1 hour needed) - $60
