Rain Facial in Bellevue & Kirkland

The skin is the body’s largest organ and one of the few organs we can have a direct and visible effect on. Like the rest of the body, our skin will change over time. It will stretch, retract, be damaged, and heal. The skin may also show signs of aging like wrinkling, thinning, sun spots, and dullness. While part of the natural life cycle, we also have to take care of our skin and keep it healthy. For some, this may not include anti-aging treatments (and that’s okay!), while for others anti-aging treatments may be the focus of their skincare. Arguably, the best skin treatments are those that offer benefits to both the overall health and beauty of the skin. Northwest Face & Body’s rain facial is designed to provide customized skincare to help address your specific skin concerns and need.

Understanding Your Skin’s Moisture Needs

Your skin needs hydration and moisture to maintain its status quo, heal itself, and keep it looking healthy. Moisture becomes even more important during the winter months when the air is colder and dryer, which can dry out the skin. Keeping the skin hydrated and moisturized helps prevent this as well as the discomfort that comes with it.

There are many components necessary to keep your skin properly hydrated. Firstly, drinking plenty of water helps make sure that your skin cells remain plump and hydrated. However, this alone is generally not enough to keep the skin adequately moisturized. This is where topical application of humectants, oils, and creams comes into play.

Hydrating products draw moisture from the environment into your skin. Moisturizing products lock in this moisture. On the surface, this helps prevent dry, cracked skin and can help make the skin look smoother. To some degree, they may also prevent some free radicals from damaging the skin.

Beyond this, an individual’s skin type also influences the amount and type of moisture they need. For example, people with dry skin will need to use thicker and more potent moisturizers. Whereas those with oily skin will likely find the best benefit from water-based moisturizers.

The Customizable Rain Facial In Bellevue, WA

The rain facial in Bellevue is designed to change its treatment protocol for each patient’s needs, the season, the patient’s lifestyle, and other factors that may change between sessions. This means it is possible to undergo multiple rain facials where no two are exactly the same. Thus, this allows your master esthetician to deliver high-quality moisture and treatment effectively and quickly. With nine different treatments built-in, the rain facial is a versatile, professional skin treatment.

Red Light Therapy

Red light therapy is a painless process that can help improve blood flow to the skin, kill acne-causing bacteria, and improve overall skin cell function. These benefits can have both functional and aesthetic results. For example, increased blood flow can help improve the healing process after breakouts which can prevent scarring.

Blue Light Therapy

Blue light therapy is used to treat already damaged skin. Using specific wavelengths of blue light, the treatment works to destroy abnormal skin cells while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. It is gentler than laser procedures and is a great option for mild or not-yet-formed sun damage.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a popular and minimally invasive way to resurface the skin. Unlike other microdermabrasion procedures though, the rain facial uses water to gently remove dead and damaged skin cells. This helps boost collagen production and allows moisturizing agents the patient uses daily to penetrate deeper into the skin. As it is minimally invasive, it also is less irritating than other forms of resurfacing.

Vacuum Pen

The vacuum pen is specifically designed to suck out blackheads and clogged pores. The rest of the treatment then helps add moisturizing and balancing components to the skin and promotes healthier pores.

Skin Scrubber

For less visible or deeper debris located in the pores, the skin scrubber uses light vibrations and small pulses of electricity to draw them out. They are then cleared away from the skin and the pores are infused with hydrating serums.

Ultrasonic

The ultrasonic head is another option that can help clear deeply lodged debris in the pores. It can also generally promote a deeper cleaning and penetration of serums and moisturizers. The high-frequency sound waves may also help reduce inflammation and promote skin healing.

Lymphatic Drainage

Like elsewhere on the body, the skin of the face can swell and become inflamed. Lymphatic drainage aids and speeds up the body’s natural processes of clearing out the retained fluid. This can provide relief from certain types of inflammation and allow your skin to look and feel better overall.

Rain Facial Packages

For convenience and to address common skin concerns, we do offer packages designed to aid with specific issues. However, we use these packages more as guidelines because your master esthetician may tweak them as necessary to best treat you.

The tsunami package is a treatment that can benefit all skin types and provides a quick influx of moisture and hydration. It is ideal for patients wanting to address dull or lifeless-looking skin, especially if this appearance is new. The tsunami package is also ideal for people with dry skin, sun damage, and basic anti-aging prevention. The basic tsunami package includes the rain facial, ultrasonic treatment, and red light therapy.

The monsoon package focuses specifically on anti-aging concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, loss of skin elasticity, and discoloration. It is also recommended for people with acne concerns. The monsoon package includes the rain facial, lymphatic drainage, red light therapy, and skin scrubber treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is There Any Downtime Or Aftercare After A Rain Facial?

No, patients can return to their normal activities immediately following a rain facial. Depending on the specific treatment performed, your master esthetician may provide some small aftercare instructions such as not applying retinol or skipping certain products for the rest of the day. However, other than this, there are usually not any further instructions.

What Can A Bellevue Rain Facial Treat?

A rain facial can supplement the treatment of many skin concerns and conditions. It primarily focuses on helping to maintain skin health and beauty, address aging concerns, and prevent skin dryness. Your master esthetician may recommend combining rain facial treatments with more aggressive forms of treatment such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Some patients may experience mild and temporary skin irritation and redness. However, this usually resolves on its own within a day. In very rare cases, it is possible to experience an allergic reaction, but this is generally preventable under most circumstances. Overall, patients usually do not see major side effects from a rain facial, and the treatment is considered very gentle and safe.

How Much Does A Rain Facial Cost?

The cost of the rain facial is based on the package chosen:
  • Tsunami Package: $179
  • Monsoon Package: $149
The cost may fluctuate depending on the specifics of the treatment and any added procedures. Following a consultation with a master esthetician at Northwest Face & Body, patients will receive a personalized price quote for their procedures.
