The European Facial: Concentrated Cleansing

Learn what to expect from a classic facial treatment with Groupon's introduction to the european facial.

If you’re wondering what exactly is so “European” about the european facial, consider that continent’s wealth of diversity: natives of nearly 50 independent countries speak hundreds of languages and dialects. The european facial shares the inclusive spirit of its namesake, adapting to address skin conditions that range from acne and age spots to redness and dry skin. Its basic steps include cleansing, toning, exfoliation, extractions, and a hydrating treatment that may take the form of either a mask or lotion. Katie O’Reilly, the associate editor of DaySpa magazine, believes in the benefits of these extra steps. After the cleansing and toning, she says, “Your skin is just going to be healthier and more protected than it was beforehand. And tightening anybody’s pores helps their skin no matter what their issues are.”

Of all the steps in a european facial, exfoliation and extraction prove the most crucial—and the most variable. “Find out what kind of exfoliants work best for your skin,” O’Reilly advises, noting that some skin types respond best to glycolic-acid peels and others take more readily to a milder fruit-enzyme scrub. She likens extractions—the act of removing blackheads and small pimples—to “going to the dentist for your face,” though some aestheticians consider this step too invasive and opt against it. It may come in one of many forms, but a monthly or seasonal facial always presents a valuable opportunity to confer with an expert about your skin’s overall health.

NY Med Spa

The team at NY Med Spa relies on modern technology and methods to restore skin to its smooth, youthful appearance. The clinic's aestheticians sing "Happy Trails" to happy trails and other unwanted hair during laser hair-removal treatments. They also use lasers to erase spider veins or to stimulate collagen production, subsequently smoothing out wrinkles without requiring invasive surgery. Injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm help smooth out fine lines caused by aging, stress, or prolonged raisin impersonations.

In a Nutshell

Rejuvenating European facial begins with a thorough cleansing and steaming before exfoliating the skin and hydrating it with a custom mask
