The treatment is about delivering results desired by the client suffering with sensitivity or rosacea. The treatment starts with a consolation with your Pevonia therapist where they will go through questions like what triggers your skin condition, lifestyle questions and treatment expectations.
The facial starts like any normal facial with a cleanse, tone and skin analysis. It is after this that the treatment becomes a little different. The RS2 concentrate is massaged into the skin using light pressure, this is followed by a seaweed massage that will help to desensitise the skin and help strengthen the capillaries.
Then a powder masque is applied over this and left to set until it is hard, this masque helps to diffuses redness and vasco constrict the blood vessels. While the masque is on the therapist performs an arm massage. After about 10 minutes the massage is removed and the RS2 concentrate is applied again.
It comes from an American company called Pevonia, whose goal it is to create activate, organic, results driven products. It was developed by a French couple Philippe and Sylvie Hennessey, they created the company in 1991 and it has been growing ever since. Sylvie Hennessey is a highly educated lady who creates all the products for Pevonia, and they all have a purpose, hence the rosacea line; helping people suffering with rosacea or similar skin conditions to overcome them.
The whole concept behind the rosacea facial it to reduce visibility of dilated capillaries, to help healing the skin and also reduce the appearance of blotchiness and congestion.
Yes, home care plays a big part in the aftercare of the treatment, so the benefits are still ongoing when you go home. Keeping a diary to help keep track of your triggers that may cause your rosacea to flare up and then be aware of those triggers. Also using the right products at home after your facial. Using the rosacea line from Pevonia will help to enhance the benefits from the facial as well as helping to manage your rosacea on a daily basis.
I would recommend that they ask themselves ‘what’s in it for me?’. What benefits from the treatment will they get, and are they willing to commit to the treatment? As rosacea is a hard skin condition to treat the client needs to be willing to want to get results and commit to a skin regime given to them by their therapist. They should also communicate with their therapist if they find something isn’t working for them. What few people know is that it takes four to six weeks for your skin to adjust to new products so you need to give it time. It can also get worse before it gets better.
Anyone that has any kind of sensitivity, redness, blotchiness and any stage of rosacea.
Anyone who has a fish allergy should avoid it as there is seaweed in the masque, or if you have an allergy to iodine or have thyroid problems, if you’re pregnant or are claustrophobic (as the masque can feel heavy on the skin and people who suffer from claustrophobia may feel uncomfortable).
