Get Smooth, Soft, Healthy Skin with Facials and Facial Treatments

Want superior skincare at an affordable price? The pros recommend regular facials for optimal skin health – at least every 3-4 weeks – but that can get expensive at a traditional salon. At Summit Salon Academy Kansas City, you can get professional facials, and facial treatments, that are effective and leave your skin soft and smooth.

Facials and facial treatments are more than just a pampering skin cleansing. They target your skin’s specific needs to clarify, hydrate, treat breakouts, and even offer anti-aging protection. 

Facials. Most experts recommend a professional facial at least once a month. Your skin’s cell turnover happens about once every 28 days, so staying on top of this schedule is important for optimal skin health. 

Facials have several steps: cleansing, steaming, exfoliating, extraction, massage, mask, and treatments. You’ll start with a deep yet gentle cleansing, using professional products and tools that you just can’t get at home. Steaming is done with a warm, wet towel or with a special machine. It helps clean pores deeper by sweating out impurities and weakening any breakouts. A bonus is the relaxation – the warm steam feels great and relaxes your facial muscles. Exfoliating is an important step, scrubbing off dead skin cells and pollutants that make your skin look dull. If your skin has active whiteheads or blackheads, you’ll have the extraction phase to get rid of them. This is painless, because your skin has already been prepared for it. The massage portion of your facial is important for stimulating circulation, which helps deliver oxygen-rich blood to your cells as well as draining away toxins. Your mask treatment will vary based on your skin’s needs – it might focus on hydration, deeper exfoliating, clarifying, or another function. Following the mask, your skin will be treated with a series of serums, lotions, or oils that best optimize the health of your skin.

Hydrafacial. A hydrafacial treatment uses a special, patented tool that cleans, exfoliates, and infuses your skin with vital serums. The tool gently vacuums impurities while simultaneously infusing it with actives that brighten, moisturize, and protect your skin. It works well for teens or adults with active acne breakouts, people with sun-damaged skin, and people with uneven skin tone or hyperpigmentation. Hydrafacial can improve your skin’s texture in about 30 minutes, with no downtime. The process is completely customizable with a variety of add-ons for your skin’s individual needs.

Microdermabrasion. A microdermabrasion treatment is intense exfoliation, using a special tool to remove the outer layer of dead skin. It works for people with visible fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, mild acne scarring, dull complexions, or sun-damaged skin. It works by stimulating your skin’s natural restorative processes, encouraging collagen production and skin cell renewal. Collagen is the protein that builds skin structures, so boosting this process keeps your skin looking smooth, soft, and elastic. Microdermabrasion treatments take about an hour, and you can usually resume regular activities right away. You’ll see noticeable results right away, but it may take a few treatments for optimal results.
