Do you know the science behind your facial? Every living thing has a life cycle, including your skin after a facial.

It’s important to know what to expect before, during and after any skincare services you receive. We share a lot about what you can expect to experience during your treatments at Spa Kingston, but do you know the benefits extend weeks after you exit our doors?

We’re giving you the full inside scoop on the lifecycle of your facial, from the time you step out of the treatment room to when your skin is ready for your next treatment.


Your skin will radiate a healthy, dewy glow! Your complexion may not look picture-perfect and poreless, yet. This is because your aesthetician has most likely done extractions to remove any impurities deep within your pores. This can create minor redness in extraction zones.

SK Pro Tip: Add 20 mins. of our LightStim LED Therapy on to the end of your service to minimize redness and inflammation!


Your skin will be hydrated and radiant due to boosted circulation and oxygen flow! You are red-carpet camera ready. Avoid over cleansing, harsh toners, heavy creams and exfoliation; give your skin a break to shine through!

SK Pro Tip: Use our Magic Ice Globes in the morning to bring down any puffiness from your beauty sleep!

Cells have regenerated and turnover to allow the long-term restorative benefits of your facial to kick in. This is when the anti-aging, fine line minimizing action takes place.

SK Pro Tip: Apply a mask two weeks after your facial to keep your skin hydrated and further enhance your glow! We recommend the Berlin Skin Honey Matcha Mask; it has powerful antioxidants and natural brightening ingredients!

You may notice your skin looking dull or oil/dirt building up in your pores creating blackheads! It is time to schedule your next appointment to remove dead skin cells and rid your skin of impurities again! The deep exfoliation from our facials will help your products absorb deeper into the skin. This will make your skin look and feel softer and smoother as well as make your makeup blend easier and look better!


SK Pro Tip: Rebook for our Red Carpet Facial! This facial seriously gives you award-winning results. A combo of proteins and B vitamins dramatically enhance the appearance of skin tone and texture. An enzymatic peel is coupled with layers of skin-tightening masks applied to produce visual improvement of your muscle tone, firmness and elasticity to contour the jawline and cheekbones.

Taking care of your skin and taking some time out of each month to relax and rejuvenate while doing so should be mandatory self-care! Now that you are knowledgeable about your facial’s lifecycle and benefits, we hope to see you in soon at Spa Kingston! x
