How Long is a Facial Treatment?

A basic facial appointment usually takes around 45 minutes; however, an advanced facial can take up to 90 minutes and you can charge more for the upgraded service.

How Often Should I Schedule My Clients for Facials?

The frequency of facial treatments can vary depending on the individual's needs, but most experts recommend receiving the treatment once every 4 weeks to achieve optimum benefits. 

What Clients Should You Avoid Doing Facials For?

One of the many benefits of facials is that it is safe for all skin types. However, there are a few clients you should avoid facials for:

- Avoid clients who are undergoing cancer treatments. It is possible for this type of individual to have a facial done, but there is specialty training and products to be used and they should seek out a facialist who is trained to work with cancer patients.

- Avoid clients who have active cold sores or warts around the mouth or an infectious disease of any kind. Facials can cause the virus to spread and make the situation worse.

Following these simple guidelines can provide a safe and effective service for all your clients.

Who are the Best Facial Clients?

Facials can be performed on all skin types, but it is particularly beneficial for clients with dull, dry skin or those struggling with congestion. Men can also benefit from facials, and if the beard hair is see through, you can work directly on top of it. If the hair is thick and not see through, then you would perform a facial around the hair.
