Body Treatments & Exfoliation at the Spa

 

Body Treatments & Exfoliation at the Spa

What are Body Treatments?

Body treatments are like a facial for your whole body. It is important to cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin on your body. They can also have a detoxifying effect on your entire system. Spa Villa offers two body treatments: body exfoliation and body wrap.

These exfoliating treatments take place on a massage table covered with a sheet and a large, thin piece of plastic. As you lay on your stomach, the massage therapist rubs a mixture of sea salt, oil, and aromatics like lemon into your skin. This exfoliates the skin and leaves it feeling velvety soft.

Once your whole body is scrubbed, which takes maybe ten or fifteen minutes, you shower it all off without soap, leaving a nice coating of oil. A good follow-up to a body treatment is a massage. If you’re having both treatments, it is best to do the body treatment first.

Why is Exfoliation Important?

Exfoliation is the removal of the oldest dead skin cells that cling to the skin’s outermost surface.

Exfoliation is an important part of both facials and body treatments. When done correctly, exfoliation leaves the skin feeling smoother and fresher looking.

The skin is constantly generating new skin cells at the lower layer and sending them to the surface. As the cells rise to the surface they gradually die and become filled with keratin. These keratinized skin cells are essential because they give our skin its protective quality. But they are constantly sloughing off to make way for younger cells.

As we age, the process of cell turnover slows down. Cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin’s surface, giving it a dry, rough, dull appearance. Exfoliation is beneficial because it removes those cells that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, younger skin cells below.
