What is sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin is sometimes caused by genetic factors such as rosacea or acne. Other times, it’s caused by external factors such as environmental pollutants, skincare chemicals, laser treatments, sun damage, and, most of all, lack water intake. Also, sensitive skin can come in many forms. For example, you may have dry skin, redness, dehydrated skin, allergic reactions and irritations. Our beauty clinics in Montreal and Laval have unique treatments and facials explicitly chosen for you if you experience sensitive skin.
Treatments for sensitive skin
Facials for sensible skin can improve complexion, reduce inflammation and boost your skin’s immunity, which will help prevent future irritations. For a sensitive skin facial, expect gentle touch and products with soothing ingredients such as natural fruits and plant elements and sea-derived extracts to be used. Light enzyme peels may be used to exfoliate, followed by a soothing serum and mask. Many sensitive skin facials conclude with a moisturizer formulated to reduce redness and calm inflammation. Facials for sensitive skin can benefit you in many ways. Most of our clients report improved skin complexion, reduced redness, less swelling, less irritation and reactions.
Facial analysis and consultation
Our facialists take your skin seriously and provide you with a full skin analysis before any treatment. This process will enable us to select an appropriate gentle treatment made for sensitive skin. Products we use can light exfoliation and the application of products made specifically for sensitive skin types. If you need blackhead removal or extractions, it will be done meticulously and with gentle care.
Certain products, like strong exfoliating acids, or physical exfoliation, may be too harsh for sensitive skin, and our experienced skincare specialist knows this. We encourage you to be very communicative and express all your concerns and past experiences. This way, we can tailor a personalized treatment for your skin type. The focus here is to use hypoallergenic products that reduce the risk of irritation.
Can you get a professional facial with sensitive skin?
Our clients that have sensitive skin types still want to get a feeling of hydration, relaxation and glow. After a client to aesthetician conversation, we can help figure out a treatment that will accomplish your goals without causing unnecessary irritation.
In general, sensitive skin is more responsive to facial treatments that are known to be hydrating, calming, or soothing. Facials we would typically suggest are light peels such as mandelic acid or hydrating facials with a hyaluronic acid-base. If a person with sensitivity requires extraction, we can recommend the hydra dermabrasion facial. This extracting and exfoliating facial will shed off accumulated dead skin cells and dark spots but using a gentle water-based system. We indulge our clients with complimentary LED light treatments to help soothe the skin and improve results.
