Bacial – Facial for the Back

Please check your locations booking page to see if this course is available at your venue


A Bacial is a thorough skin treatment specially designed and formulated for your back.  Why would anyone bother some might ask? Well if you suffer from breakouts or acne on your back then why not visit a professional and thoroughly trained therapist to have these issues dealt with.  We see soo many adverts all promoting facial skin care but what about other parts of our body.  Our backs are exposed when we go swimming, to the beach, spa days, wear our summer wardrobe etc.  Plus , who needs an excuse to have some “me time”.  Life is stressful enough as it is without having to justify to someone why you are looking after your skin!!!!

Back facials use a lot of the same products and techniques used in skin treatments for the face.  They cleanse the skin, exfoliate, steam, extract, tone, massage and moisturise.  Sounds like bliss right!

Bacials are for both men and women targeting specific skin types such as dry skin, or congested skin.
