What are back facials?
Back facials include the same techniques you would find in a standard facial, including deep cleansing and exfoliation, purifying masks, and extractions for clogged pores. Back facials are also very popular for treating back acne, but are also good for treating other skin conditions such as oily skin.
What should I expect during a back facial appointment?
For a back facial, you’ll lie face down on a table as an aesthetician uses cleansing products, exfoliation techniques, and extractions if needed. Back facial extractions usually start with a steam treatment to loosen the pores, before an aesthetician uses special products and tools to extract oils and debris from clogged pores. Normal back facials include a relaxing mini massage that helps deeply moisturize the skin with special creams or oils, preventing oily skin or dryness later on.
What are the benefits of back facials?
Back facials are most popular for treating back acne, and are great for doing just that. But back facials can also help with inflammation, itchiness, dryness, and oily skin – or just help you look better without a shirt on.
What should I do after a back facial?
Depending on your skin type, you may have some redness and irritation after extractions, and your esthetician may recommend moisturizers and other products to help keep skin balanced between sessions. To treat back acne, it may take multiple sessions plus at-home care in between visits.
