What is a Fire & Ice Facial?

A Fire and Ice Facial, also known as a “red carpet facial,” is a unique facial treatment that uses two masks to achieve glowing, radiant skin. The first mask smooths and resurfaces your skin using heat which helps increase blood circulation. The second mask hydrates and nurtures the skin by cooling it, and the result is glowing, refreshed skin.  

The masks used in this type of facial contain different ingredients. The “fire” mask includes retinol, citric acid, vitamin B3 and unbuffered glycolic acid. The “ice” mask typically includes rosemary, aloe, grape seed, licorice extracts, and Japanese green tea. Although these are common ingredients, it is essential to remember that the exact composition of the masks may vary. 

What Are the Benefits of a Fire & Ice Facial?

Fire and Ice Facials help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your skin. Also, the process can soften and smooth out rough, uneven skin, produce long-lasting results, and promote rejuvenation for all skin types. 

Fire and Ice facials are very common for many reasons, such as:

  • Improving hyperpigmentation and rosacea
  • Boosting cell regeneration
  • Reduces the appearance of scars, blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles 
  • Helping to clear acne and improve acne scarring
  • Zero downtime and minimal preparation
  • Quick, safe, and effective

The Recovery & Results

Fire and Ice facials use all-natural ingredients, making this type of facial procedure safe and effective for any age group and skin type. Whether you have normal skin or struggle with oily, dry, or combination skin, a Fire and Ice facial can help improve your facial skin with little preparation and virtually no side effects.

Also, the Fire and Ice procedure has no recovery time so that you can return to your day-to-day tasks immediately after your appointment. Unlike many other facial procedures, you will not notice some common struggles experienced with chemical-based procedures, such as irritation, shedding, inflammation, and redness.
