Facial Treatments 101: Choose the Best Facial for You

Facial treatments are an excellent way to improve the overall health of your skin while also relaxing and letting go of all your stress. With so many options available it can be tough to know what each type of facial does and which will be best for you.

To help you choose the best facial treatment for your unique needs, we’ll review the techniques and benefits of four of the most popular types of facials:

  • European facials
  • Hydrating facials
  • Oxygen facials
  • Facial peels

Key Benefits of a Facial Treatment

There are a variety of facial treatments available, and though they differ in technique, active ingredients, and overall results, they still provide many of the same benefits.

  • Deep cleansing: Facials help remove oil and dirt from deep within your pores, leading to fewer blemishes and glowing skin.
  • Better blood circulation: Facial treatments can stimulate circulation, which helps bring more oxygen and nutrients to your skin and reduces puffiness.
  • Moisturizing: Facials hydrate the skin to make it supple and reduce issues such as flakiness and irritation.
  • Reduced scarring: Acne is frustrating enough on its own, but it can also leave long-lasting scars. Facial treatments can help reduce the appearance of scars and even out skin tone.
  • Stress relief: Getting a facial is an act of self-care. It’s a great way to relieve stress while also improving the look and feel of your skin.

What is a European Facial?

A European facial, also called a classic facial, is the most common facial treatment. It’s an excellent option if you’re looking for a way to de-stress and pamper yourself. Your esthetician can customize the type of products they use during the treatment, such as moisturizers, and masks, to suit your specific skincare needs. This makes European facials appropriate for all skin types.

Geneo facials are an innovative take on the European facial method, and offer immediate and long-lasting results. Learn more about Geneo facial treatments here.

What Does a European Facial Include?

A European facial includes: Steaming, cleansing, exfoliating, massaging, masking, and moisturizing.

A typical European facial starts with an esthetician gently steaming your face to open your pores. They then cleanse and exfoliate your face to remove impurities and dead skin cells that can cause a dull complexion.

Next, they perform a facial massage that stimulates circulation and helps give your skin a healthy glow. It’s also deeply relaxing. The final steps are a face mask followed by a serum or moisturizer to condition your skin.

How Much Does a European Facial Cost?

A classic European facial costs between $50 and $120, depending on how basic you want the services to be. Many salons offer tiers for classic facials, allowing you to customize the services you want. For example, you may be able to choose a simple steam, cleanse, and moisturize option or a more involved process that includes all the steps covered above as well as extractions.

What Is a Hydrating Facial?

A hydrating facial is a treatment that’s focused primarily on deeply moisturizing the skin to reduce the look of fine lines and banish flakiness and irritation. A hydrating facial can benefit all skin types, though it’s especially helpful if you have naturally dry or combination skin. It’s also a great option during the wintertime. Cold, dry air saps moisture from the skin, and this type of facial provides an instant dose of skin-soothing hydration.

Good to know: A hydrating facial is different from a hydrafacial. A hydrafacial is a type of hydrating facial performed with a proprietary device that removes impurities with suction.

If you’re looking for deep, lasting hydration, Geneo’s Hydrate Facial uses innovative technology to enhance moisture retention, strengthen the skin barrier, and increase skin metabolism for a replenished and revitalized complexion.

What Does a Hydrating Facial Include?

A hydrating facial includes: Deep oil cleansing, exfoliation, steaming, masking, and moisturizing.

A hydrating facial has many of the same steps as a European facial, but it’s done with products specifically chosen for their moisturizing properties. Your esthetician will begin with a deep oil cleanse, followed by exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and steam to open your pores. This puts your skin in the best condition to accept the rest of the treatment. For the last step, you’ll receive a hydrating mask and a rich moisturizer to lock in all the hydration.

How Much Does a Hydrating Facial Cost?

A basic hydrating facial can be done at home for just the cost of the materials used, while treatments done professionally can range from $60 to $200.

What is an Oxygen Facial?

An oxygen facial uses highly pressurized oxygen loaded with nutrients your skin needs. The oxygen is applied directly into the outer layer of skin on your face and neck. This nourishing treatment can promote collagen growth to make your skin more supple and reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. It works well on all skin types.

While Geneo facials are not considered oxygen facials, oxygenating the skin is a key factor in the innovative technology and enhanced processes used in all Geneo facials.

Instead of applying pressurized oxygen to your skin, “Geneo’s oxygenation process triggers the body’s natural, physiological process of producing oxygen to increase oxygen levels internally within skin. Oxygen is carried to the surface of the skin where the heightened levels of oxygen prep the skin to absorb nutrients throughout the rest of the facial treatment.”

Click here to learn more about how Geneo facials work, and how our technology provides significantly enhanced results compared to other facial methods.

What Does an Oxygen Facial Include?

An oxygen facial includes: Cleansing, exfoliation, pressurized oxygen treatment.

As with most treatments, an oxygen facial starts with cleansing and exfoliating to prep the skin. Your esthetician will then use a device to apply nutrient-rich, pressurized oxygen to your face and neck, rejuvenating and nourishing your skin.

How Much Does an Oxygen Facial Cost?

An oxygen facial usually costs between $100 and $200, though some clinics charge as much as $500.

What is a Facial Peel?

A facial peel, sometimes called a chemical peel, is a treatment that removes layers of skin. It’s done with a chemical solution commonly made from lactic, salicylic, and glycolic acids. After a peel, your skin grows back smoother, more evenly toned, and younger looking. A peel can also make scars less visible.

What Does a Facial Peel Include?

Unlike other facial treatments which are done by an esthetician, a facial peel (especially a deep peel) is typically performed by a dermatologist as an outpatient procedure.

There are three levels of chemical peel – light, medium, and deep. The three levels refer to how many layers of skin the peel removes. The more layers removed, the more effective the peel. However, it’s important to keep in mind that medium and deep peels can leave your face red for several weeks as the skin heals to reveal a smoother, fresher complexion.

Facial peels are not used in Geneo facials.

How Much Does a Facial Peel Cost?

Chemical peels cost anywhere from $100 to $6,000, depending on what level of peel you’re getting and the clinic you go to. Light peels are the least expensive, and deep peels are the most expensive.

What Kind of Facial Should I Get?

The best facial treatment for you will depend on your skin type, budget, and what specific results you’re looking for.

  • To moisturize dry skin, try a hydrating facial.
  • To reduce scarring, get a facial peel.
  • To rejuvenate skin, look for an oxygen facial.
  • To relax and get healthy-looking skin, try a European, hydrating, or oxygen facial.

Skin Exfoliation 101: A Guide to Skin Renewal

With so many skin products on the market, it can be easy to forget about one of the simplest and most important skin care techniques: Exfoliation! Performing a home skin care routine without proper exfoliation is like trying to create a new painting on top of an already used, dirty canvas. Freshly exfoliated skin provides the ideal foundation for the rest of your skin care routine.

In this article, we’ll review why exfoliation is so essential, cover popular exfoliation methods, share ways to exfoliate your skin at home, and how at-home exfoliation compares to spa quality exfoliation.

How Does Exfoliation Work?

Skin cells don’t live forever, unfortunately. In fact, millions of cells die every day, but new ones are always ready to replace them. This cycle is called desquamation.

Ideally, all old skin cells would shed on their own to allow room for the fresh cells to replace them; however, they sometimes need a little help. That’s where exfoliation comes in.

Exfoliation is the process of manually removing dead skin cells using chemical applications, grainy scrubs, or scrubbing tools. When you remove the barrier of dead skin cells, you reveal the fresh, healthy cells underneath.

Exfoliation Benefits

Exfoliation can benefit your skin in several ways:

  • Uncovers fresh skin cells, and these absorb skincare products better. This means your moisturizers, serums, and other products work more effectively.
  • Removes dead, grainy skin cells to reveal a brighter complexion.
  • Stimulates collagen production, which is key to younger-looking skin.
  • Reduces breakouts by removing dead cells that can clog pores.

How to Exfoliate Your Skin

Exfoliating your skin isn’t difficult, but it’s important to be gentle on your skin when doing so.

If you’re at a spa, your esthetician will know exactly what to do; but there are still some steps you can take to make sure to protect your skin while getting it squeaky-clean and exfoliated.

How to Exfoliate Your Skin at Home

It’s easy to create an at-home exfoliation skincare routine. Before you begin, it’s important to know that you should only exfoliate healthy skin. If you have painful acne, a cut, or a sunburn, you can exfoliate while avoiding that area carefully or wait until your skin has healed.

The face is the most common area to exfoliate, but you can also use it to remove old skin cells from the rest of your body to reveal fresh, smooth skin.

Follow these steps to add exfoliation to your skincare routine:

  1. Cleanse the area: Use your usual face or body wash to clean the area you want to exfoliate.
  2. Apply exfoliant in a circular motion: Whether you use a scrub, exfoliating serum, or a brush, the key to proper exfoliation is using the product gently and in a circular motion. It doesn’t take much pressure to remove dead skin cells, and being too forceful can cause redness and irritation.
  3. Rinse: Splash the area you exfoliated with water or use a wet cloth to completely remove all the dead skin cells and any product you used.
  4. Moisturize: Now that your skin is clean and refreshed, it’s the perfect time to hydrate with a gentle moisturizer. Your skin may feel a little sensitive after exfoliating, so choose a moisturizer without harsh ingredients like alcohol or fragrances.

While facials are the most common skin treatment performed at spas, you can also receive exfoliating skin treatments on other parts of your body as well.

If you’ve never had an exfoliating facial or other treatment before, or have not used exfoliating products at home, make sure to communicate that to your esthetician so they can use their most gentle ingredients and techniques.

It’s also important to avoid exfoliating facials if you have a sunburn, painful blemishes, or any wounds on your face or other skin areas that you would like to treat.

Most facials and skin treatments involve an exfoliation step, so make sure you work with your esthetician to select the facial treatment and exfoliation method that will work best for your skin.

There are many different kinds of exfoliation methods available in professional spa treatments: from physical methods like microdermabrasion that use a sand-like grit to slough away old skin cells; to chemical methods like a glycolic acid that lifts away dead skin cells.

Geneo facials use natural ingredients in the Geneo OxyPod, which react with the Geneo Primer Gel to provide gentle, non-invasive exfoliation and trigger the oxygenation process within the skin.

Even better, there is a personalized Geneo facial for every skin care need, so this gentle, innovative skin care treatment works for everyone.

How Often to Exfoliate

How often you exfoliate will depend on your skin type, and whether you’re exfoliating your skin at home or with a professional treatment.

  • If you have sensitive skin, you should exfoliate no more than once a week. If your skin starts to feel irritated or extra sensitive, reduce the frequency to once every other week.
  • If you have oily skin, you can exfoliate three times a week or even every other day if you don’t notice any sensitivity. You’ll likely see a reduction in breakouts once exfoliation becomes part of your routine.
  • If you have dry skin, exfoliating one to two times each week will help keep your skin fresh without causing irritation.
  • If you have combination skin, you can exfoliate your entire face about twice a week. You also have the option to exfoliate just your oily areas more often if needed.

Note: If you receive a spa exfoliation treatment, you may want to skip your next at-home exfoliation treatment, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Exfoliation Tools and Products

There are two main types of exfoliation: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliators include scrubs and dry brushes, and chemical exfoliators include alpha and beta hydroxy acids.

We tend to think of chemicals — especially acids — as harsh, but chemical exfoliants are often gentler on the skin than physical ones. The strength of the chemical exfoliant is predetermined and applied in a controlled manner. Physical exfoliation is sometimes done too aggressively, especially by those new to exfoliating.

Whether you use physical or chemical exfoliation, keep in mind that your skin should never be red and sensitive after your exfoliate. If it is, this is a sign that you used a physical exfoliant too aggressively, are exfoliating too often, or your skin is too sensitive for the chemical exfoliant you used.

Skin exfoliation scrub

An exfoliating scrub is a substance that contains tiny, mildly abrasive particles that remove dull skin cells.

At Home: Scrubs are typically targeted to either the face and neck or the body, and it’s important to use them for their intended purpose. The skin of your face is more delicate and sensitive than the skin on the rest of your body. A body scrub will be too harsh for your face, and a facial scrub may not be abrasive enough for the rest of your skin.

At the Spa: Some spa treatments use an exfoliating scrub, especially on areas of the body other than the face. Scrubs are especially common in pedicures, since calloused areas like the feet can better handle the abrasive scrubbing.

Dry brush exfoliation

Dry brushing has been around for thousands of years, so it’s a thoroughly proven method for effective exfoliation, stimulating circulation and may even improve lymphatic drainage. Dry brushing removes dead skin cells with a stiff-bristled brush that you gently rub over the skin in a circular motion.

At Home: You can use this exfoliation method for both your face and your body, often with the same brush. Just be sure to choose a brush that is soft enough to use on your face without causing irritation.

At the Spa: Some spa treatments offer dry brushing, especially in combination with body or facial massage. Make sure your esthetician is very practiced with the treatment, and if the pressure feels too intense or painful at any time, speak up. Dry brushing can damage your skin if performed with too much pressure, or on overly dry, damaged, or sensitive skin.

Chemical exfoliation

Unlike a scrub or dry brush which physically removes dead skin cells, chemical exfoliants work by using acids to break down old skin cells. The acids used are usually either AHA or BHA, or a newer ingredient type known as PHA.

AHA exfoliation uses alpha hydroxy acids, BHA uses beta hydroxy acids, and PHA uses polyhydroxy acids. While they may sound a little intimidating, these ingredients are often naturally sourced (like the most common AHA, citric acid).

All of these chemicals work in similar ways to remove dead cells and smooth out skin. However, BHA exfoliation penetrates deeper into the pores, making it ideal for unclogging pores in acne-prone skin.

At Home: Since some chemical exfoliants can be irritating, make sure to test them out on a small area of your skin before applying it all over. Avoid combining chemical exfoliants with ph-sensitive ingredients, like vitamin C, in your other skin care products.

At the Spa: Make sure to communicate to your esthetician if you have very sensitive skin. PHA exfoliants (like in the Geneo Hydrate Facial) are often gentler on sensitive skin than AHA or BHA, while providing improved results.

Guide to Facial Massage: Benefits & Step-By-Step Techniques

What first comes to mind when you think about getting a quick, healthy glow while treating scars and preventing wrinkles? Is it expensive serums? A complex, 10-step Korean skincare routine? 

Those are certainly great options, but there’s an even better one that’s simple and free to DIY: facial massages! We’ll guide you through what a facial massage is, its benefits, and how to do it at home, so you can have radiant skin in minutes.

What is a Facial Massage?

Facial massage has gained popularity in the United States and Europe in recent years thanks to endorsements from gorgeous celebrities like Meghan Markle and Cate Blanchett. However, it’s been a staple of Asian beauty routines for hundreds of years.  

Facial massage is the practice of gently rubbing and kneading the face using specific motions to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. It’s similar to a traditional body massage, but it’s done with light pressure due to the sensitive nature of the face. 

It’s a deeply relaxing procedure with benefits ranging from glowing skin and more defined contours to lymphatic drainage and headache management. You can perform a facial massage on yourself or have a professional do it for a more thorough and relaxing treatment. 

When Should You Do Facial Massage?

You’ll see the best results from facial massages if you do them at least twice a week, though you can do them daily if you prefer. The best time to do a facial massage is when you’re applying a product to your face, such as your a.m. moisturizer or a night serum. Using a product first ensures your fingers or massage tool will glide over your skin smoothly. 

Whether you choose to do your facial massage in the morning or evening, each option has its own benefits.

  • A morning facial massage can reduce any puffiness you may develop overnight. It will stimulate your circulation so you start your day with luminous skin. A morning facial massage is also a great way to set a calm, positive tone for the day.
  • An evening facial massage is excellent for relieving any tension you may be holding in your facial muscles, which will help prevent future fine lines and wrinkles. Introduce facial massage as part of your bedtime routine, and you may even find that you fall asleep more easily.

Facial Massage Benefits 

There are many reasons your skin will thank you for introducing facial massage into your skincare routine. Some benefits you will see right away, such as a youthful, glowing complexion and decreased puffiness. Others, such as scar management and tighter skin, will be revealed over time with a consistent facial massage routine. 

Benefits of a facial massage include:

  • Glowing, rejuvenated skin thanks to improved circulation
  • Lymphatic drainage that can reduce puffiness
  • Reduced appearance of raised scars as the tissues loosen up
  • Tighter skin and facial muscles 
  • A more sculpted appearance around the jawline and cheekbones
  • Reduced sinus symptoms such as congestion and headache
  • More relaxed facial muscles that can prevent future wrinkles

Disadvantages of Facial Massage 

While most people experience few side effects when properly performing facial massages, there are a couple of potential downsides that it’s important to note. People with very sensitive skin may experience some redness and irritation with certain facial massage tools, and active breakouts may be too tender for many facial massage methods.

Geneo facials are a great option for sensitive skin, as our hands-free massage method is gentle enough even for active breakouts.

How to Do a Facial Massage Step-by-Step

Now that you know the many benefits of facial massage, it’s time to learn how to do it! This section will provide step-by-step directions on how to perform an effective facial massage to improve your skin’s health and appearance.

Before we dive into the facial massage steps, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Always wash your face and hands before beginning.
  • Start your facial massage by applying a product such as a moisturizer, facial oil, or serum. Your fingers must be able to glide over your skin without any pulling.
  • You can perform these steps using your hands or a facial massage tool such as a gua sha stone, jade roller, or vibrating massager.
  • Repeat each step about five times before moving to the next.

Follow the facial massage steps below to revitalize your skin and ease facial tension. 

  • Forehead: Place the knuckles of your index fingers on your forehead between your eyebrows. Stroke up toward your hairline and then out toward your temples. 
  • Eyes: Place your knuckles on either side of the bridge of your nose level with your eyes. In an upward, arcing motion, stroke your fingers under your brow bone. When you reach the outer corners of your eyes, continue the movement under your eyes. (Imagine you’re drawing an oval shape around your eyes).
  • Cheeks: With your knuckles on your cheekbones near your nose, stoke up and out. Move your hands down a little and repeat the motion on the underside of your cheekbones.
  • Mouth: Make peace signs with both hands. Place them on either side of your mouth, with your index fingers above your upper lip and your middle fingers below your bottom lip. Slide your fingers outward toward your ears.
  • Chin: Place your knuckles on the center of your chin at the jawline. Stroke them upward toward your ears.
  • Neck: With your knuckles on either side of your jaw, perform a sweeping motion that starts under your ears and goes down along your neck. Reverse the move and repeat.

6 Full Body Spa Treatment Facials to Try in 2022

Facials are what most people think about when it comes to skincare, but there are plenty of full body spa treatment options that can help you relax while treating site-specific skin issues. We’ll introduce you to six facial-style spa treatments for your whole body so you can have radiant skin from head to toe!

6 Full Body Spa Treatment Options to Try

Let’s look at four full body spa treatments that can help combat everything from “bacne” to ingrown hairs. We’ll explain what each treatment involves, why your skin will love it, and which Geneo facial treatment we recommend for each area.

1. Back Facial

In 2020, back treatments rose in popularity in response to social distancing. It provided a way for people to get a much-needed relaxing spa treatment without the risk of prolonged face-to-face interactions. The popularity of back facials continues because they give some TLC to an area that’s often ignored during home beauty treatments. 

What Is a Back Facial?

A back facial begins with a gentle steaming to open your pores and ease you into a state of relaxation. Next, your esthetician will cleanse and exfoliate the skin on your back to remove dirt, dead skin cells, and other skin-clogging impurities. If you have back acne, your treatment will include extractions to help relieve your breakouts. As the final step, your practitioner will apply moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and refreshed.

Benefits of a Back Facial

There are many benefits to getting a back facial:

  • Deeply cleanses and moisturizes a hard-to-reach (and often neglected) area
  • Relieves current “bacne” and prevents future breakouts
  • Helps you de-stress and enjoy a moment of self-care
  • Lets you look your best in a swimsuit or backless outfit

Which Geneo Treatment Works Best for Your Back?

Geneo Balance Facial

The back has a lot of oil glands, making it prone to “bacne” and hormonal skin issues. Clear up your back with this detoxifying treatment that uses bamboo charcoal to detoxify and remove skin-dulling impurities. It also improves texture and appearance without the downtime that comes with dermabrasion and other harsh exfoliation treatments, and it includes an all-natural balancing serum to provide deep hydration for long-lasting results.

2. Butt Facial

Dancers and other performers were some of the first people to line up for butt facials. It’s understandable — if thousands of people are going to see your butt in a revealing costume, you want it to look good! The trend eventually gained popularity with non-performers thanks to “belfies,” or butt selfies, on Instagram. A butt facial ensures the skin on your bum looks so good, people will think you’ve photoshopped it. 

What Is a Butt Facial?

Like the back, the butt is often neglected when it comes to home skincare routines. That means it’s rarely exfoliated, and many people develop folliculitis, an inflammation of the hair follicle that can create pimple-like bumps on your bum. A butt facial treats this and other skin issues by steaming, cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, extracting, and masking.  

Benefits of a Butt Facial

A butt facial comes with many benefits:

  • Gives a healthy glow to your backside that will help you rock your swimsuit with confidence
  • Reduces the appearance of butt pimples or inflamed skin follicles
  • Helps even out hyperpigmentation

Which Geneo Treatment Works Best for Your Butt?

Geneo Revive Facial

This treatment uses powerful active ingredients like red algae and retinyl palmitate to deeply hydrate and improve the texture of your skin.  It also increases skin firmness and elasticity, making it an all-around great treatment for your backside.

3. Bikini Facial

Bikini facials have been around for several years and continue to be popular, especially during swimsuit season. The bikini area is often troubled by ingrown hairs from shaving or waxing, hyperpigmentation, inflammation, or even blackheads. These issues can cause people to become self-conscious when it’s time to hit the beach or go on a date. Everyone wants their skin to look its best, no matter where it is. 

What Is a Bikini Facial?

A bikini facial uses steam, cleansers, peels, and moisturizers, just like a regular facial. It can also include extractions if you have ingrown hairs, though you might ask to skip this step if you have a low pain tolerance. (It’s a sensitive area, after all!) The products used during a bikini facial usually aim to exfoliate and brighten the skin using gentle enzymes and cleansers.

Benefits of a Bikini Facial

Enjoy these benefits of a bikini facial:

  • Removes ingrown hairs and can help prevent future issues
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Unclogs pores that can lead to bumps
  • Removes dead skin cells and impurities so your skin glows

Which Geneo Treatment Works Best for Your Bikini Area?

Geneo Illuminate Facial

Full of skin brightening ingredients, this treatment reduces hyperpigmentation and evens out skin texture for a smoother look. It gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells, and it includes anti-inflammatory ingredients to soothe redness and irritation from shaving or waxing.

4. Décolleté Facial (or Chest Facial)

The décolleté or chest area is often overlooked in skincare routines and treatments, but it’s one of the first areas of your body to start showing signs of aging. Décolleté facials or chest facials have increased in popularity in recent years as people have begun including this delicate area in their regular facial skin care routines. 

What is a Décolleté Facial?

A décolleté facial or chest facial covers the neck and upper chest area, and is very similar to a regular facial. It often includes gentle massage in addition to steam, cleansers, and moisturizers, in order to help prevent wrinkles and promote lymphatic drainage. 

Benefits of a Décolleté Facial

There are many benefits to a décolleté facial:

  • Deeply cleanses and moisturizes an often-neglected area
  • Helps prevent and reduce signs of aging in an area with very delicate skin
  • Nourishes skin and promotes skin cell turnover for skin that glows
  • Promotes lymphatic drainage

Which Geneo Treatment Works Best for Your Decollete?

Geneo Detox Facial

Your chest and décolleté get a lot of sun exposure nearly all year. This detoxifying facial treatment fights free radicals, rids your skin of toxins and reduces the appearance of UV damage with active ingredients like green tea extract and marula oil.

5. Arm Facial and Leg Facial

Arms and legs are often neglected when it comes to spa treatments, but your limbs deserve some extra TLC, too. The skin on your legs and arms has fewer oil glands than the skin on other parts of your body, so this area is often prone to dryness. A facial treatment provides deep cleansing and moisturization for your limbs, and helps you look your best in any outfit.

What are Arm Facials and Leg Facials?

An arm facial or leg facial works just like any other facial treatment, and includes steam, cleansers, moisturizers, and extractions. If you experience strawberry skin, ingrown hairs, or clogged pores from shaving or chafing, an arm facial and leg facial can help treat those unsightly irritations. 

Benefits of an Arm and Leg Facial

Getting a facial treatment for your arms and legs comes with many benefits:

  • Moisturizes and nourishes skin that is often prone to dryness
  • Removes ingrown hairs and treats “strawberry skin” caused by shaving and clogged pores
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Removes dead skin cells and impurities so your skin glows

Which Geneo Treatment Works Best for Your Arms and Legs?

Geneo Hydrate Facial

Your arms and legs have fewer oil glands, so they often suffer from dryness. Our Hydrate Facial improves moisture retention and revitalizes dry, dull skin. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients promote cellular renewal to keep your skin looking and feeling refreshed.

6. Full Body Facial + Full Body Exfoliation Spa Treatment

Sometimes you just need a fresh start. You can get a full body spa treatment that provides deep exfoliation to every inch of skin, removing dead skin cells and giving you a glowing complexion from head to toe. 

What Is a Full Body Facial?

A full body facial treatment works just like a facial treatment for any other body part, but includes everything from your back, neck and decollete, arms, legs, butt, bikini, and anywhere else you would like a facial treatment. 

You can also choose to have just certain areas treated, including a decollete facial, arm facial, or leg facial; or opt for a head-to-toe facial treatment.

Benefits of a Full Body Facial

There are many benefits to getting a full body facial:

  • Deeply cleanses and moisturizes your skin from head to toe
  • Relieves current blemishes and helps prevent future breakouts
  • Oxygenates all your skin from the inside out
  • Lets you look your best in any outfit or swimsuit

What Is a Full Body Facial Exfoliation Treatment?

At your full body facial exfoliation treatment, you’ll start by getting undressed. Your esthetician will apply the exfoliant in stages, and you’ll have a towel so you can cover up areas that aren’t being treated. Using either a mildly abrasive scrub or an exfoliating serum, the esthetician will rub the product into your skin to remove the barrier of dead skin cells. You’ll then rinse off and a moisturizer will be applied to hydrate your skin.

Which Geneo Treatment Works Best for Your Whole Body?

Geneo Hydrate Facial

While any Geneo facial treatment will work well on your entire body, getting a full body facial treatment is a great opportunity to boost your skin’s hydration. The Geneo Hydrate Facial enhances moisture retention, strengthens the skin barrier, and improves skin metabolism–all of which are great for every part of your body. 

Benefits of a Full Body Facial Exfoliation Treatment

Full body exfoliation comes with many benefits:

  • Provides deep relaxation as your specialist gently massages the product into your skin
  • Increases blood flow and gives you glowing skin from top to bottom
  • Offers much-needed exfoliation to areas that are hard to reach on your own
  • Creates a smooth foundation for a spray tan which helps it last longer

Can Geneo Treatments Provide Full Body Facial Exfoliation?

Yes! All Geneo Body Treatments include three stages: Exfoliation, Oxygenation, and Nourishment. 

Here is what to expect in each stage of a Geneo facial treatment:

  • Exfoliation: 
    • Natural ingredients in the Geneo OxyPod react with the Geneo Primer Gel for gentle, non-invasive exfoliation and trigger the oxygenation process within the skin.
  • Oxygenation: 
    • Geneo’s oxygenation process triggers the body’s natural, physiological process of producing oxygen to increase oxygen levels internally within skin. 
    • Oxygen is carried to the surface of the skin where the heightened levels of oxygen prep the skin to absorb nutrients throughout the rest of the facial treatment.
  • Nourishment:
    • A blend of active ingredients is infused into your newly oxygenated and exfoliated skin during our ultrasound and neo-massage processes, allowing for maximum skin nourishment and hydration.

Ready to Look and Feel Your Best All-Over?

Though facial skin tends to get the most attention, all the skin on your body works the same way and needs regular care to keep it healthy. Whether you’re concerned about your back or your bikini line, full body spa treatments are available to help you cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and treat any area. 

Geneo facial treatments provide gentle, targeted treatment using 100% natural ingredients, and each treatment can be customized to your skin’s unique needs with the power of our Geneo OxyPods.

Geneo isn’t just an innovative facial treatment. It is a 360-business partner to help you grow your practice and revenue. Jamie can attest to this.

When it comes to profits, Geneo proves to be a great business investment immediately. Jamie’s advice to new and potential Geneo customers is to get the most out of your machine. She said, 

“The Geneo machine can be utilized in more ways than just the Geneo protocols and be more profitable. We offer Geneo as standalone treatments as well as with treatment add-ons, such as extractions, jelly masks, chemical peels and LED, and we can charge more.”
– Jamie Jeraminas DeNault, Practice Owner and Esthetician

Jamie also recommends “using the ultrasound wand for add-ons to other treatments” due to its ability to deliver instant smoothing results on the surface and increase the permeability of the skin’s protective layer, resulting in enhanced absorption of ingredients.

How should I prepare for a spa facial treatment?

Discontinue retinol 3-5 days prior to any Geneo treatment, and do not receive dermal fillers or injections within 2 weeks of your Geneo facial. 

Additionally, we recommend you remove dirt, oil and makeup with a gentle cleanser several hours prior to your Geneo facial treatment. Once clean, you should apply moisturizer and SPF to protect your skin. Most importantly, avoid irritants or abrasives.

What should I expect during a spa facial treatment?

Generally, your Geneo treatment will include a consultation to identify needs and conditions, followed by a 3-step treatment that provides oxygenation, exfoliation, nourishment and sculpting. 

Geneo's unique method of exfoliation does not include any pulling or tugging on the skin so it is suitable and comfortable for all skin types. 

The ultrasound step provides a gentle warming and soothing sensation that helps skin absorb the active ingredients from the serum. 

The massage step provides a tension-relieving vibration-based massage to encourage stress in the face to fall away.

What should I expect after my spa facial treatment?

First and foremost, Geneo treatments provide immediate and long-lasting results with no downtime. 

We recommend you let your skin recover before washing and reapplying makeup. After three hours your skin will be ready for a light wash and hydration.

We also suggest avoiding heavy exercise, sauna, or outdoor exercises in direct sunlight on the day of your treatment, and advise that you reapply SPF 30 or higher at least every three hours if you are in direct sunlight. 

Can I get a facial treatment anywhere on my body?

Geneo treatments are effective just about anywhere on the body where it is appropriate to apply topical treatments. Popular treatments include back facials, neck and décolleté facials, butt facials, bikini facials, arm facials, leg facials, and full body facial treatments

We recommend that you discuss areas of concern with your esthetician to address specific areas with a personalized treatment.

“I purchased the Oxygeneo 3 in 1 super facial. It was glorious, my skin is so much softer and it helped with the breakouts I had been experiencing. Jamie is very knowledgeable. I ended up taking my boyfriend for a facial the next week. 😂 He loved it too. His skin needed it. He is out in the sun a lot working. Excited to go back!”
Tiffanie F.

“This place is so cute! Went in for a facial and it was quiet and peaceful! Parking is easy and so was booking. It was my first facial experience and I really enjoyed it. Jamie took care of me, she was REALLY friendly, thorough and did not pressure me into trying anything but explained all of the options well. We did the full Oxygeneo 3 in 1 super facial and my face still feels amazing 5 days out. It cleared up all the congestion I had on my chin and my skin feels so soft! She also explained how important is it to take care of my skin and introduced me to some great SPF that I now use daily. Can’t wait for my next session!”
Sarah M.

"Excited to have a peel with a massage today. So needed!! Loved every minute. So relaxing and my skin feels and looks amazing! Nothing better. Can’t wait to try the Oxygeneo facial next time!!"
– Laura F.

Reviews from Yelp:

"Brio is a must!!! I've had quite a few facials in my life and this was certainly top of my experience. Jamie was the esthetician and she couldn't be sweeter;) I got the Freedom Facial and it was AMAZING! I am visiting, but if I lived here I would see her as much as I can. I'm certainly coming back each time I'm in town."
– Jenna F.

“I woke up to my skin feeling AMAZING from my OxyGeneo facial yesterday!! Jamie is very knowledgeable and knew exactly what this working Mama of two needed. My skin was so dehydrated from the heat and being on the go with kids, working and riding motorcycles. My skin looks and feels hydrated, firm, and so plump you can't see my wrinkles!! This facial has given me an extra boost of confidence for my busy work week to come! I will try to make this a monthly treat for myself and it's going to be my go to gift for family and friends. Thank you so much Jamie for the skin love!”

Say Hello To Hydration

Love At First Facial

The Skin Society, located in Fayetteville, GA, is a skincare oasis with a passion for helping their clients have happy, healthy skin. Katie Belle Glendye, Practice Owner & Aesthetician, implements the most up-to-date technologies and highest quality products to combat any skincare and help clients maintain radiant skin. Katie Belle fell in love with Geneo when she experienced the treatment firsthand from her personal aesthetician. “My Geneo facial was so incredible and relaxing. I went back a month later and requested a Geneo facial before getting a Geneo device for myself. Geneo’s patented oxygenation technology was not even close to anything I had ever experience. It was so unique and different than anything I currently offer at my practice.”

Katie Belle found implementing Geneo into her practice was seamless. She said, “Geneo is such a great platform that you can easily make work for you, regardless of what you are trying to add to your practice. If you are trying to add a hydrating treatment to your menu, Geneo works. If you are trying to add a more exfoliating treatment with extractions, Geneo works. If you need a treatment to prep the skin prior to laser treatments, Geneo is a no brainer. This platform has the ability to morph into whatever you need it to be.”

Making A Splash in Skincare

The Skin Society treats many patients who suffer from dry, dehydrated skin, especially during the colder seasons. Geneo’s innovative oxygenation technology coupled with the NEW Hydrate facial treatment is the go-to solution for replenishing and nourishing the skin. “We use Geneo to target mature and dry, dehydrated skin. This is the treatment we recommend,” said Katie Belle. “It is an easy sell for us.”

Geneo’s patented oxygenation technology allows for deep infusion of hydrating ingredients by triggering the body’s natural, physiological process of increased oxygen levels internally. Oxygen is carried to the surface of the skin where the increased levels of oxygen prep the skin for maximum absorption throughout the rest of the facial treatment, leaving you with immediate and long-lasting results.

My clients can feel the results happening in a relaxing way. Often, I hand them a mirror and show them the oxygenation bubbles on their skin. Also, the Neo-Massage impresses everyone. It is so relaxing. The feeling of your skin when it is done is truly amazing. It is so soft and hydrated.”

Impactful Ingredients

Developed specially to revive and repair dry skin, Geneo’s Hydrate Treatment includes a blend of refreshing ingredients that leave skin moisturized and replenished.

  • Blue Spirulina: Improves skin’s moisture retention and provides anti-inflammatory effects
  • Lactobionic Acid: Enhances hydration and encourages firmer, younger looking skin

Clinically Proven Results

V/O Med Spa, located in Fairlawn, OH, is determined to make their clients feel great and look amazing at the hands of their talented estheticians. Esthetician Laura Griffin and Spa Manager Sarah Mills credit Geneo’s patented technology for taking their clients’ skincare goals one step further. Laura says, “Our team loves the results! Geneo increases your own oxygen levels internally for better product absorption as well as skin tightening and toning, leaving skin hydrated, healthy, and glowing! We love that the treatment is gentle, but clients can feel the process happening.”

Results Backed by Science

Standing out among other facial experiences, Geneo’s innovative skincare platform offers three technologies in as little as 30 minutes, leaving clients with immediate and long-lasting results in no downtime. Many people think this sounds too good to be true. Laura and Sarah find it very important to “give clients detailed education about what each technology is doing and the science behind it in order to understand the benefits that their skin is receiving.” Geneo’s three non-invasive, clinically proven technologies include:

  • OxyGeneo: Geneo’s unique OxyPods react with the Geneo Primer Gel to create a gentle exfoliation and CO2 rich environment on the skin’s surface, triggers the body’s natural, physiological process of increased oxygen levels internally. Oxygen is carried to the surface of the skin where the increased levels of oxygen prep the skin for maximum absorption throughout the rest of the facial treatment.
  • Ultrasound: Micro-vibrations stimulate and condition the skin to deliver instant, smoothing results and increase the permeability of the skin’s protective layer, resulting in enhanced absorption of Geneo serum’s active ingredients.
  • Neo-Massage: A soothing massage that delivers instant reduction in redness and puffiness while continuing to deeply infuse Geneo serum’s active ingredients.

A Treatment for Every Skin Concern

Sarah tells us that they brought in Geneo “to give clients more diversity with treatments. It brings in more profit since we can customize Geneo treatments for each client and their unique skin needs. I recommend that everyone brings Geneo into their practice.”

With a core Geneo clientele of 30 – 49, V/O Med Spa sees a lot of clients with concerns of aging. “Geneo Revive is our favorite treatment to use for these clients because of its ability to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also firming their skin,” says Laura. During the summer months, she tells us that Geneo Illuminate is their go-to for treating pigmentation from excess sun exposure and “giving the skin a nice, hydrated glow.” Geneo Balance and Geneo Hydrate are sprinkled into the mix for younger, acne-prone clients or clients with dry skin, especially during the cold winter months.

Radiant Red-Carpet Skin

Results You Can Rely On

Spa in the City, located in Dallas, TX, is a go-to spot for glowing skin for a reason. With several decades of experience, Spa Owner & Founder Josanne Stephens provides excellent care and exceptional results using quality skincare methods and technologies, making Geneo the perfect addition to her spa. “Geneo is an excellent facial treatment for those who would like younger-looking skin with ZERO downtime and is a huge fan favorite at Spa in the City,” says Josanne. “Clients love the instant gratification and difference they can see in their skin immediately after their treatment.”

Josanne and her staff are confident recommending Geneo to clients because it “offers a unique three-in-one approach to facial treatments, leaving skin looking and feeling rejuvenated with results you can maintain with further treatments.” She continues, “Thanks to Geneo working on both the inside and outside of the skin, its targeted treatments allow us to address specific skin concerns and tailor treatment options to the patient’s individual needs, such as to achieve skin that looks more youthful or address dull skin.” Some immediate results that clients have seen after just one Geneo treatment include improved skin texture, smoothness, and brightness.

There’s no one size fits all solution to skincare. Geneo offers four facial solutions that target specific skin concerns to treat clients of all ages and skin types, including signs of aging, dullness, hyperpigmentation, dryness, acne, and more. “The ability to perform a Geneo facial on ANYONE makes it a great addition for our practice,” says Josanne. Her and her staff have also seen success layering additional treatments onto a Geneo facial, such as extractions and masks.

The Best Plus One For Your Big Event

Geneo’s non-invasive patented technology leaves you with a red-carpet worthy glow with no downtime, so no need to worry about the potential complications or side effects caused by more invasive skincare treatments. “Geneo is a quick treatment that delivers fast results, making it ideal for patients that are short on time and have busy schedules,” says Josanne. “We love the way clients look immediately after. It is one of the few treatments that we can offer instant gratification. Clients’ skin is glowing, plump and extremely hydrated immediately after their Geneo treatments. We always recommend Geneo treatments prior to big events!” Weather it’s a prom, wedding, birthday bash or casual get together, Geneo is here to leave your skin refreshed, hydrated and bright! And if it couldn’t get any better, Josanne’s clients “also love that Geneo treatments are so relaxing and just feel GOOD!” What else could you ask for before a big event?
