Houston Thermal Scrub Procedures

Thermal Scrub is a type of spa treatment providing the skin with an immediate sensation of well-being being. It gently removes any dead skin cells or impurities leaving the body feeling smooth and velvety enhancing the absorption of subsequent treatments. This will reactivate the microcirculation of blood; thereby, providing the skin tone with a new glow and suppleness. Thermal Scrub, as a treatment, has been developed to offer a warm sensation when the product makes contact with damp skin. The sensation provides a comfortable experience typically achieved using masks, cleansers, and moisturizers. The heat generated will gently warm the skin, maximize exfoliation, and moisturize leaving the area smooth and soft. Free radicals are also removed during this procedure.

The Advantages Of Thermal Scrub Treatments On The Skin:

  • Leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft
  • Nourishes and refines the skin
  • Enhances hydration of the skin with a satin-style finish
  • Reactivation of microcirculation offering glow, tone, and elasticity
  • Improving absorption of subsequent treatments by the skin
  • Gentle removal of dead cells and impurities offering effective exfoliation

Thermal Scrub Used For Exfoliating The Skin

Body scrubs are one of the best methods for exfoliation, invigoration, and rejuvenation of the skin and the lymphatic system. Different products can be utilized for scrubs, such as Himalaya salt, sugar or sea salt combined with essential oils, carrier oils or herbs for the desired effect. This treatment can be performed without showering. The therapist will apply the scrub to all body parts and promptly remove the scrub using a hot towel. The table setup can include a large towel or bath sheet on which the client lies during the scrub. After the treatment is complete, the towel is removed and a massage can be performed. Scrubs may be applied to the full body or on different areas as an additional treatment. For example, a cleansing back scrub or refreshing foot scrub can be a beneficial low-effort addition to the massage. Scrub mixtures as a part of a treatment can have strong exfoliating effects on the therapist’s hands. This is a useful method to keep your hands soft! Of course, pre-mixed scrubs can be purchased if you do not want to create specific blends for your client’s customized needs. However, developing personalized scrub mixtures will make the client feel more appreciated and special.

How Do I Know If I Require An Exfoliation?

One simple method of determining if you require an exfoliation is to conduct a home test to see if you have dry cells on your skin’s surface. Take a section of clear tape and apply the tape to your forehead, then rub it gently onto the skin before removing. Examine the tape and if there are pieces of flaking skin you will need to exfoliation. You Glo Medical Spa specializes in many different kinds of treatments for our clients.

Why Is Thermal Scrub Treatment And Exfoliation Significant?

Exfoliation is considered one of the most significant methods a person can perform to resolve specific skin conditions, as well as to achieve a glowing and healthy skin. As an aesthetician operating with various clients, I have used exfoliation as a technique to transform skin like it did for a certain client of mine.

What Are The Different Types Of Skin Care Issues Exfoliation Can Improve By Using Thermal Scrub?

1. Blemished Skin

Exfoliation should be the primary focus of all home care procedures. In so many cases, we are told that the best method is to dry the skin out using harsh acne treatment products. While this can help to destroy all acne-causing bacteria, it will also dry out the skin and consequentially result in skin irritation with potential future breakouts. This is because the skin is being over-dried and surface dry skin cells will build up. This will act as a type of barrier trapping oil in the skin; thereby, beginning another cycle of acne skin breakouts.

2. Post-Breakout Dark/Red Marks

In the majority of cases, the key concern is not so much the blemishes of the skin, but rather the dark marks remaining on the skin long after the breakout has been treated. The key to fading these post-breakout marks is to increase the level of exfoliation during the Thermal Scrub treatment. The more you exfoliation completed, the greater the number of damaged cells will be removed from the surface of your skin. By doing this, you will also be removing dark marks and blemishes from the skin; thereby, encouraging the formation of healthier and non-scarred skin cells. The result of this treatment is an even-toned skin without scarring. To deal with stubborn acne scars, in particular, I recommend using post-breakout fading gel.

3. Clogged Pores

Contrary to popular belief, clogged pores are not infected blemishes on the skin but rather small whiteheads, blackheads, and small clogged bumps on the skin. Clogged pores often occur on the forehead. When treating clogged pores, the same rules apply as for treatment of blemished skin. The more you attempt to remove dry surface skin cells, the less oil will remain trapped and clogged within the pores.

4. Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation refers to brown spots presented as a person ages, experiences hormonal changes, becomes pregnant or is due to genetics. The brown spots often become darker and more apparent as the person’s ages. Exfoliation is a highly beneficial method to break up the pigmented cells allowing them to fade. When mixed with a skin lightening agent, such as Hydroquinone or vitamin C, the exfoliation will assist in accelerating the fading procedure.

5. Dry Skin

Exfoliation of the skin is particularly important during the winter months. In most cases when one’s skin is dry, we tend to use heavier moisturizing lotions to compensate for skin dryness; however, dry skin means you are experiencing dry surface skin build up and the heavier cream layers you use the greater you are trying to rehydrate the dry skin cells. This makes no sense whatsoever and it would be better to increase the level of exfoliation to eliminate the dry skin cells and then moisturize the new cells; thereby, resulting in a hydrated and glowing skin appearance.

6. Concerns Regarding Wrinkles

The skin’s standard exfoliation procedure slows down aging skin; thereby, resulting in a build-up of dry surface skin cells. As exfoliation treatment is increased, you are tricked into believing that the skin will become young again. Special types of exfoliant operate particularly well when applied to layers of the skin jump starting aging and tired cells with the ingredient retinol or retinoic acid. Retinol assists in repairing lower layers of skin where elastin and collagen reside; therefore, with continued usage, the skin will begin to appear younger and smoother with passing days.

How Often Should A Person Exfoliate?

It is advised that one does not exfoliate more than five times per week. Currently, there are two separate types of exfoliants. The first type is an ‘acid’ or ‘chemical’ exfoliant that does the work for the user. After application, you can leave it on the skin for a specified time while it operates to dissolve all dry surface skin cells. The exfoliants include ingredients such as salicylic acids, glycolic acids, lactic acids, and enzymes like papaya, and pineapple. The second type of exfoliant is the ‘physical’ option meaning that you will need to do work. This exfoliant type includes sponges, facial scrubs, and facial brushes. Of course, a combination of chemical exfoliants and physical exfoliants will offer the best exfoliation results.
