the benefits of facials


Our faces are the first thing people see when they look at us, and often determine how we feel about ourselves. Most people understand the importance of having a great daily skincare routine, but often overlook the fact that the skin needs regular deeper cleaning to be at its best and allow the daily regimen to work its best. The optimum long term benefits come from treating your skin to high-quality monthly facials. Not only is a facial relaxing, but also extremely valuable for the appearance of our skin as we grow older. Regular facials can make a major difference in the quality of your skin. Facials enhance your appearance by substantially reducing breakouts and clogged pores, they help to prevent dryness and premature fine lines and wrinkles. A custom Raya European Facial includes:

Professional Evaluation

When you come in to the spa, an aesthetician will closely take a look and see what type of facial would best suit your skin whether it's hydration, acne control, age-defiance or general preservation. 


Once the assessment is complete, you'll instantly feel relaxed as lotion is applied to your hands then then placed in warm gloves to moisturize the skin.

Your face will be cleansed and moisturized as well, with products that are most beneficial to your skin type. A calming massage of your face, neck, shoulders and upper back will soothe you even more and start the energy flowing.


Steam will flow through the room to heat and open your pores before extractions, and an enzyme mask will be applied. Then, special care is taken to remove any congestion that may lie below the skin. This process prevents further breakouts and can be the most significant part of a facial because it results in longer-term clear skin and unclogs pores. 


An exfoliating mask or peeling cream will  be applied and will help to remove dead skin cell from the skins surface, keep them from blocking pores. Following those exfoliating , an astringent and high frequency will be applied to  remove any remaining bacteria, help prevent future breakouts, and shrink pores.  

Lip and under eye nourishment

A warm azulen paraffin treatment on the lips and under to eyes will lock in moisture and help a nourishing cream to soften and nourish the delicate lip and under eye areas.
