Ok, we know…it might sound weird, and you may wonder, “is a back facial not just a back massage?”. Well, the answer is no. So, what exactly is it?
A back facial is a treatment that consists of deep cleansing, exfoliation, and extractions. Much like a face facial, but instead, it’s performed on your back (duh!). When it comes to getting a back facial, an aesthetician will use creams and possibly steam to exfoliate and clean your skin before extracting oil and debris. The treatment ends with a detoxifying mask for hydration.
The treatment typically begins with a deep cleansing followed by exfoliation, this might be manual exfoliation followed by exfoliation using microdermabrasion for those target areas. The facial for the back concludes with a therapeutic mask; some spas also offer a relaxing neck, back, and shoulder massage.
Why Get A Back Facial?
Back facials can be beneficial in cleansing those tough-to-reach spots, targeting a variety of skin care needs such as clogged pores, back acne, and dehydrated skin. This treatment mimics many of the traditional techniques used while performing treatments for the face. It incorporates deep cleansing, extractions, and purifying masks. Microdermabrasion will help to smooth, clear, clean and unblock pores.
