Advantages of the European Facial

You may know us best for our Botox services, laser treatments and tattoo removal, but at the offices of Genesis Lifestyle Medical, we provide much more than that. In particular, we have an entire array of med spa facial services available for people looking for basic comfort or a few specialized treatments.

One of our spa offerings is called a European facial, also called a classic facial in some circles. What is this treatment, and how can it benefit you? Let’s take a look.

European Facial Basics

A European facial is designed for people looking to detoxify and exfoliate the skin. It will begin with cleansing, which removes makeup and any impurities present on the skin. After this is the exfoliation process, where dead skin is removed by an exfoliation masque combined with a hand massage. This helps generate dead skin turnover.

From here, if you desire any extractions on the face, they can be done. If you do receive extractions, they’ll be followed by disinfection, and then a soothing ampoule is usually applied. After this, a treatment masque is applied, along with a lymphatic neck and shoulder massage for relaxation. This masque will depend on your skin type and any skin conditions. Finally, a moisturizer with SPF protection for your skin type will be applied.

A European facial will leave you feeling refreshed with a healthy, glowing complexion. Let’s look at some of the specific benefits.


  • Unclogs pores, and removes all impurities – blackheads, whiteheads and pimples
  • Detoxifies the skin and leads to better circulation of blood to the face and nearby areas
  • Relaxes tension in the face, and can reduce the onset of headaches between the eyes
  • Stimulates cellular renewal
  • Reduces lines, age spots and blemishes that are common in the face
  • Hydrates the skin and helps bring a youthful, rejuvenated look
  • Can be personalized with a number of individualized techniques without compromising the overall themes
