Has the stress of life built up in your back and shoulder area?
Have you been unable to get to that hard to reach back area?
Do you feel ready to peel off that shirt and show some skin at the Beach?
... then the Back Facial was designed for you!
A back facial is a skin treatment which is formulated specifically for the back. Some spas refer to a back facial as a "bacial". This thorough yet relaxing process was originally developed for the face, and can include any or all of the following: cleansing, exfoliation, steaming, extraction, mud mask, gentle arm stretches, light back massage, toner and moisturizing lotions.
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. It helps to eliminate dry skin from exposure to sun and the elements, and relieve back pain from overtaxed muscles and chronic stress.
Back facials are particularly fitting treatments during bathing suit season or for people who wear low-back attire.
Back facials are, for the most part, a painless extraction process. The facial typically begins with a gentle steaming to open pores and lift impurities, followed by a deep cleansing and exfoliation. The facial for back concludes with a therapeutic mask; some spas also offer a relaxing neck, back, and shoulder massage.
Each Spa offers different variations of this treatment that usually lasts 50 to 60 minutes. Additional skin treatments usually reserved for the face such as glycolic peels and dermabrasion are now available for facials for the back.
