The European Facial Process by Strands

Personalized Consultation

Your European Facial journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with our expert Beauty Consultant, who will carefully assess your skin and discuss your specific concerns and goals. This allows us to create a customized treatment plan that targets your needs and ensures optimal results.

Gentle Cleansing

To kickstart the facial treatment, we begin by using a premium, gentle cleanser specially selected to match your skin type. Our double-cleansing technique eliminates any makeup residue, dirt, and impurities, leaving your skin clean and clear for the remainder of the process. 


A customized exfoliating product is applied to your skin, gently buffing away dead skin cells and encouraging cellular renewal. Exfoliation process helps to improve skin texture, unclog the clogged pores, and reveal a brighter, more even complexion.

Soothing Steam

A warm, steam treatment softens your skin and opens up your pores, preparing them for extractions(if needed) and allowing the active ingredients in our premium products to penetrate more deeply.

Precise Extractions

Our skilled professional carefully perform extractions as needed, removing blackheads, whiteheads, and other impurities from your pores. Deep cleansing treatment is essential for maintaining a clear, healthy complexion and preventing breakouts.

Relaxing Massage

A luxurious facial massage follows, utilizing traditional and modern techniques designed to stimulate blood circulation, encourage lymphatic drainage, and release facial tension. This indulgent massage not only enhances relaxation but also helps to improve skin elasticity and reduce puffiness.

Customized Mask and Serums

Based on your skin concerns and needs, our expert will apply a customized mask to address issues such as dryness, oiliness, or redness. While the mask works its magic, you’ll be able to relax. Following the mask, nourishing serums and treatment products are applied to your skin, delivering targeted, potent ingredients for maximum benefit.

Hydration and Protection

To complete your European Facial, a moisturizer  specifically chosen for your skin type is applied. These finishing touches ensure your skin is hydrated, protected, and glowing.

Preparing For Your European Facial

To ensure the best possible experience and  results from your European Facial at Strands Hair and Skin Treatment Centre, taking certain steps before your appointment is essential. Proper preparation not only enhances the treatment’s effectiveness but also helps minimize any potential adverse reactions or sensitivity. Follow these tips to get the most out of your European Facial:

Book appointment


Schedule a consultation with one of our expert Beauty Consultant before your appointment. This allows us to assess your skin type, discuss your skincare goals, and address any concerns or sensitivities you may have. We will then be able to tailor the treatment to your specific needs and preferences

Discontinue use of certain skincare products

Refrain from using skincare products containing retinol, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, or other harsh ingredients for at least one week before your appointment. These ingredients can increase skin sensitivity and may interfere with the efficacy of your European Facial.

Inform your expert of any allergies or medical conditions

Be sure to inform your professional of any allergies, medical conditions, or skin sensitivities that could impact the treatment. This information allows us to select the most suitable products and techniques for your skin, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience.

Arrive with a clean face

On the day of your appointment, arrive with a clean, makeup-free face if you can. This allows us to begin the treatment immediately and devote more time to pampering your skin.

Aftercare And Maintenance

Proper aftercare is crucial in maintaining and prolonging the benefits of your European Facial. Following a tailored skincare regimen will help keep your skin looking and feeling its best between treatments. Here are some essential tips for maximizing the results of your European Facial:

  1. Hydration: Keep your skin hydrated by applying a moisturizer formulated for your skin type. Proper hydration is essential for maintaining your skin’s natural balance and promoting a healthy, radiant complexion.
  2. Sun protection: Protect your skin from harmful UV rays by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher daily. Sun exposure can cause premature aging, pigmentation, and other skin issues, so it’s essential to shield your skin consistently.
  3. Follow the experts recommendations: Your consultant will provide personalized advice on the best skincare products and routines for your unique needs. Follow their recommendations to enhance and maintain the results of your European Facial.

We recommend scheduling European Facials every 4-6 weeks for optimal results, depending on your skin’s needs.
