Chicago Paraffin Wax Treatments
Paraffin treatments are an excellent add-on to any facial and can also include a mini hand treatment. This special paraffin mask is applied over a layer of gauze on the face to seal in anti-aging products and help add hydration to dry skins. Paraffin aids in absorption of products and gives a radiant glow to the skin post treatment.
How does Paraffin hydrate and help products penetrate into the skin?
Paraffin treatments are warm and the heat helps to increase blood supply to the treated area. Moisture is drawn from underlying skin layers and rises to the skinís surface where it is mixed with the product applied. The moisture cannot escape because paraffin causes a vacuum sealer. The moisture is infused back into the skin and rejuvenates hydrates and nourishes the skin.
What are the risks involved?
Patients with the following medical conditions should not receive paraffin treatments:
When is the Paraffin treatment performed during facial treatments?
Paraffin is applied to the skin at the end of the facial, during the mask. The paraffin can either be applied over a treatment cream or applied over a mask. Your Aesthetician will inform you which treatment option is best for your skin. For anti-aging purposes, an anti-aging cream is applied and the paraffin is applied over a layer of gauze. For dry and dehydrated skin, the hydrating mask is applied and the paraffin is applied over a layer of gauze. Gauze is applied prior to the paraffin because it sticks better to the gauze and then acts as a vacuum sealer.
Paraffin treatments are a great add-on to any facial treatments. But paraffin can also be done on alone. We cleanse your skin, mildly exfoliate your skin and apply the paraffin over a layer of gauze on freshly exfoliated skin. This is good for stimulating the skin and helping to rehydrate the skinís surface. Paraffin can also be performed as a hand treatment once the facial mask has been applied. Our Aestheticians will take a hydrating hand cream, massage your hands and dip them into paraffin. This treatment is especially beneficial in the winter months when hands tend to get dry and cracked. Paraffin helps restore the moisture content.
It is important to maintain this regimen every 6 - 8 weeks for optimal results.
