european facial steps
At Revive, we use a European approach with our facials and think that all of the steps used are essential to getting amazing results. Below you can read what a facial at Revive might include.
We always start by taking a look at the skin under a bright light and a magnifying glass and do a small interview about home care routine and ask how the skin feels. This includes several questions about medication and supplements to see the condition of skin, what the skin needs, and what we could improve when it comes to home care. Then we will make final decision about which treatments should be performed.
This step is the best start to every facial. Cleansing prepares the skin for all the steps that are coming next. Depending on your skin type, we choose from several types of cleansers and toners specifically for you.
