Paraffin Facial Procedure:

Paraffin facial includes a step-by-step procedure which includes steaming, exfoliation, extraction, cream massage, application of lotions and a paraffin wax mask treatment. You certainly deserve to know how a paraffin facial is done. Here are the steps roughly:

  • Cleansing- Your face and neck is cleaned thoroughly to do away with dirt and impurities.
  • Relaxing massages- A series of calming massages follow cleansing. Your beautician would choose a cream to suit your skin and your beauty needs. A thorough massage imparts suppleness to your skin and makes your skin ready for the paraffin-wax session.
  • Cleaning- The excess cream is removed from your skin post-massage. A moisturizing lotion is applied again and you are made to recline and relax.
  • Paraffin treatment- Now, your beautician would place a gauze on your face and this gauze is similar to the shape of your face. It helps to protect your skin from the discomfort of coming in contact with hot wax. Once the mask fits you perfectly, layers of hot wax would be piled up on the gauge, about four times. The heat of this wax opens up your skin pores, rejuvenates your skin, relaxes the facial muscles and you definitely feel better! The mask is removed after about 15 to 20 minutes.
