What is a Facial?

A facial treatment is a great way to get your skin glowing! Facials help with acne, scars, wrinkles, fine lines, hydration & so much more! Facials bring life back into dull skin with exfoliation and cleansing combined with products and serums. The experience of a facial can be relaxing and rejuvenating. Our motto here at CNY Healing Arts in Syracuse is: Relax, refresh, and rejuvenate! A facial treatment is right up there in popularity with a massage!

Steps of a Facial in Syracuse at CNY Healing Arts

A facial will begin with the client and esthetician discussing the client’s skin and determining which products are best suited to treat the goal of the appointment.

The steps of a facial are: cleanse, exfoliation, steam, extractions, mask, massage.


The cleansing process will start with your face being wrapped in a warm, moist towel to open up the pores and get rid of any makeup or dirt that may be on your face from the day. A gentle cleanser will typically be massaged into the skin to make sure the skin is properly cleansed. Clean skin is best for a facial so it can soak up serums, hydration, and reduce the risk of bacteria getting into the pores. The esthetician can then tell which mask will be best for your skin seeing it clear and clean.


During a signature facial, the exfoliation step is generally a scrub or gel massaged into the skin to help clear out pores before extractions. Exfoliation helps slough off dead skin cells leaving skin renewed, ready for fresh cell growth.


Steam will be used at various points during a facial treatment. It can be used during the exfoliation step to help open pores and also will be used while a mask is on the face. Both ensuring pores are open and the products can do their job!


Extractions are that feeling that hurts so bad but feels so good. Areas like your nose and around the mouth can be very sensitive and will probably make your eyes water when blackheads or whiteheads are being extracted. The estheticians use different tools to pierce and push impurities to the surface. The steps before extractions help prepare and soften the skin to make extractions less painful.


A mask is applied specifically catered to your skin type. Different masks can help with acne, hydration, oily or dry skin. A mask is typically applied to the skin for 5-10 minutes. The esthetician will watch your skin for redness or irritation before letting you relax with steam.


While the mask is on, your esthetician will give you a soothing hand, neck, and shoulder massage. Your face has just been cleansed and is ready to glow! So sit back, relax, and enjoy pure relaxation bliss!

Final Applications?

A facial treatment will end with serums, moisturizers, and of course the number one beauty product: SUNSCREEN!

How Long Does a Facial Take?

Facial lengths all depend on the treatment itself. Typically, a signature facial following the steps above takes about one hour. Shorter facials are sometimes available but generally don’t include all the steps listed above.

More advanced, medical-grade facials vary in length.

Cost of a Facial

Signature facial costs range from around $50-$120+ with the average being around $75

At CNY Healing Arts in Syracuse, a signature facial is $90 and an express facial is $60.

Benefits of a Facial

Benefits of a facial include:

  • Deep cleansing of the skin
  • Help reduce acne
  • Bring hydration to the skin
  • Cain aide with oily or dry skin

*The signature facial can temporarily improve fine lines and wrinkles but for severe cases of skin texture, wrinkles, or acne, more medical-grade facials are better suited such as microdermabrasion, HydraFacial, chemical peels or laser treatments.

Risks of a Facial

  • Redness
  • Rash
  • Irritation
  • Allergic reaction
  • Increase in breakouts
  • Burn

* To avoid any risks or side effects, make sure to give a detailed health history to your esthetician before treatment*
