The Basic Steps of a Korean Medical Facial

People get facials for different reasons. A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment provided by skincare professionals to nourish and pamper your skin. Instead of being considered as a luxury splurge in North America by most people, people in Korea often get regular facials as part of their “Beauty Maintenance” or “Skin Management”. The culture of taking care of one's skin and achieving a beautiful appearance is deeply ingrained in Korean culture. Unlike traditional western facials, Korean facial treatment emphasize a long-term approach that results which doesn't have to be seen overnight. In this article, we've curated a handy treatment routine for Korean Medical Facial.

STEP 1: Consultation

A facial should begin with a consultation. Customer may fill out a form with questions about medical history and drug use, skin concerns, and products you are currently using, and a skin analysis by a esthetician.

STEP 2: Cleansing

It is a good idea to get things started by wrapping hair to keep product off it. The first step is thorough cleansing with correct cleanser to prep skin for next steps.

STEP 3: Deep Cleansing – Korean Hydro Facial

Choose a pore cleansing and exfoliation method from Scaling, AQUA PEEL (Korean Hydrafacial), or ultrasound scrubber.

AQUA PEEL exfoliates the surface layer of the skin allowing for deeper and more intense product penetration.

Unlike western facials, physical exfoliation such as skin scrubs during a Korean facial is a rarity, which can potentially cause small micro tears and damages the skin barrier.
