Facials admin
Revolution Massage & Beauty Gold Coast offer a specialist range of facials that vary in their ingredients to achieve your desired goal, while indulging your senses of relaxation and luxury. A facial is one of the best ways to take care of your skin, especially when it's given by an experienced, knowledgeable beauty therapist.  A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger. An advanced cosmeceutical facial provides the ultimate in skin repair. Preceded by skin analysis, double cleansing, exfoliation, deep cleansing and massage of the décolletage, neck, face and scalp followed by mask, appropriate intensive serum and moisture protection. At Revolution Massage Beauty & Lashes we love to spoil our guests.  Our therapists are highly trained to use and compose treatment plans with our cosmeceutical skin care rage, Vagheggi.  Not only will they treat and assist you with your skin concerns, they will advise a home treatment plan to ensure your skin is perfect every day, not just for the few days following your advanced facial.  Having a facial is one of life’s little luxuries that we don’t usually have or make time to have, often enough. If you can’t afford or do not have time for regular facials, invest in a good quality skin care range to maintain your extraordinary results at home.

Facial FAQs

While this would seem ideal for a fresh start, many people arrive at their session after work, so it’s not always realistic to come in without a drop of product on your skin. If you do arrive at the appointment with makeup on, your beauty therapist can remove the makeup during your procedure.
That answer really depends on what treatment you’re getting done—and your skin type. If you have super oily skin, you might have a harder time keeping the results at home. Your beauty therapist can clean out your pores thoroughly but cannot control how quickly your skin gets clogged. Most facials are customized according to your skin’s needs. One of the simplest processes you can receive is microdermabrasion, a facial treatment which can help with fine
This answer is very dependent on the kind of facial you receive, but you can have a microdermabrasion facial about once a fortnight. For maintenance, every month is ideal in an area with weather changes or an active lifestyle.
We wouldn’t recommend it for a few reasons.  Depending upon the sensitivity of your skin, it could irritate your skin even more than the sun.  Also, facials are best to have when your skin is at its natural and normal condition.  This normal condition will allow the skin therapist to really get a feel for your skin’s composition, texture, and tone.
Extractions are done by skin therapists after the skin has been properly prepped and cleansed.  Your skin therapist will bring any free and unnatural radicals that are in your pores to the surface, leaving your skin clean inside and out.
1. For the same reason doctor and dentist check-ups are necessary: for better health! Skin is a living part of your body (your largest organ, in fact), that defends against environmental assaults and extreme temperatures. It helps eliminate toxins from the body, and it is continually renewing and protecting. To look at feel its best, your skin needs personal attention from a professional. Revolution Massage Beauty & Lashes beauty therapists are all diploma qualified and intensely educated skin-health experts, regularly attending further training with Vagheggi to ensure their knowledge and products are always the best available to you. They have the answers to your most pressing skin-care concerns. They know how to deliver real, visible results. They are trained to deliver the specific Vagheggi professional skin treatments that will target your specific needs, and prescribe the products that will help maintain your optimum skin health at home in between facials.
Some people see results immediately, and your skin should feel different right away. The skin feels, clean, smooth, hydrated, and reflects a new level of health that’s visibly noticeable. If the skin has more advanced long-term needs, such as treatment of skin aging, acne or hyper-pigmentation caused by hormonal fluctuations or sun damage, results may not be immediately visible; however, skin health will continue to improve as you follow the advice of your professional skin therapist, and continue your home-care regimen.
Plain and simple: healthy skin! And healthy skin is better-looking skin. The Vagheggi products Revolution Massage Beauty & Lashes use are designed to help keep skin at an optimal level of fitness – not just cover up with cosmetic results. In addition, when skin is at an optimal level of fitness, your professional skin therapist can more effectively address issues that may arise from time to time, as your skin’s needs are constantly changing.
Similar to the seasons, skin goes through its own fluctuations. Combine nature’s weather cycle with air conditioning and forced-air heating, and you have skin that’s constantly under assault. Cold winds and low temperatures can dry out skin, depriving it of balanced levels of oils, contributing to dryness, sensitivity and premature aging. Prolonged exposure to the sun causes water to evaporate from skin, which is why skin that has recently been burned or tanned requires more moisturization than unexposed areas. Forced-air heating also dries out skin: warm, dry air acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture from everything it touches. To help skin stay healthy with the seasons, speak with your professional beauty therapist at Revolution Massage Beauty & Lashes about modifying your skin care regimen accordingly. Chances are that with a few product updates, you can keep skin healthy year-round.
No, but talk to your professional beauty therapist about what products you are using. Many products from supermarkets or beauty counters contain ingredients that cause or contribute to skin issues such as dryness, oiliness and redness.
Plan to arrive to your first appointment about 5-10 minutes early. You will need to fill out a form listing contact information, allergies and any medications that you are currently taking. Then your beauty therapist will evaluate your skin, ask you about your goals for your skin, and make a recommendation for skincare products and treatments to help you reach those goals. A facial generally consists of a cleansing, exfoliation, steam (in the form of warm towels or a machine), massage and a treatment mask.
Since Revolution Massage Beauty & Lashes facials are designed to work on your skin from the neck up, you may want to plan on removing your makeup or pulling long hair back. Cosmetics can be reapplied after the service; feel free to bring them with you, or ask about our make-up application services. Men should be clean shaved unless bearded. Other than these few easy steps, simply be ready to relax and enjoy yourself in our private, comfortable facial room.
You should never feel irritation, burning or discomfort during your facial. All Vagheggi products are created to be non-irritating, and your beauty therapist is trained to use the best products for your skin type. If for some reason you should feel discomfort, please tell your beauty therapist immediately.
Generally, facials are recommended once a month. However, you can discuss your specific needs, desired outcomes and schedule with your beauty therapist. Also, be sure to ask about our facial packages, and save when you purchase and book your regular facials in advance at Revolution Massage Beauty & Lashes.

Have your therapist assess your skin & design a home care pack specifically for your skin type.  Identifying exactly which products will be best for your skin is the most crucial thing to do when starting your facial and skincare routine. These are a few characteristics of skin types so that you can have an idea of what category you fall into for your facial.

A regular facial routine is more about skin health and maintenance than it is about luxury or pampering, although many do find it to be a relaxing, enjoyable experience. Facial services help increase circulation and stimulate the skin.

An advanced cosmeceutical facial assists in slowing down premature aging and drastically improve conditions such as acne, redness and Rosacea. Facials are a great preventative treatment to help you beat wrinkles before they occur, and can also help you achieve lighter, brighter, younger-looking skin. In addition to healthier skin, many men enjoy regular facials to help minimize irritation, redness, ingrown hairs, and razor burn associated with shaving.

Once your therapist has helped you to identify your skin type and any skin issues you may have, together you can select which skin care products are most suitable for your skin and which products you feel confident using at home. Skincare lines are catered to a specific skin type which will assist you in improving, repairing or reversing the effects of aging, whatever your needs may be.  It is important once you have decided on a skin care plan to stay with one skincare line.

Why? Because skincare lines are created to complement each other. If you choose a cleanser from one line, and a moisturiser from another, you could be using ingredients that contradict each other. Unless you really read the ingredients list, it’s safer to stick to one line.

Take time out to have a facial.  It may seem silly and unnecessary but you do need to take some time out for yourself to look after your skin and your sanity.  A facial is the perfect way to go about this. You skin, mind and soul will thank you for it. A great quality mask will gently cleanse your skin, remove deep seated impurities and dead skin cells, softly expose new skin and help your skin to look younger and fresher.

And, above all, take the advice of your skin care professional and invest in a good quality skin care range for you to use at home.  Your therapist can apply our extensive range of advanced skin care products but if you fail to continue with your skin care routine at home, you will continue to be disappointed in your skin.  Once your therapist has worked their magic on your skin, with an advanced cosmeceutical treatment, please don’t undo the dedicated work of your expert therapist and our advanced cosmeceutical skin care range by purchasing products from an uneducated sales person or from the supermarket.
