What to Expect During a Million Dollar Facial?
So, now you know the benefits of a Million Dollar Facial, you’re probably wondering what the process entails. Here is a comprehensive overview of what to expect during a Million Dollar Facial:
The Million Dollar Facial begins with a double cleanse which consists of washing the face with two different types of cleansers; the first is an oil-based cleanser which breaks down and removes any makeup, dirt, residue and excess oils on the surface of your skin, while the second is a water-based cleanser that will remove any dirt that is clogging your pores. Using a massage-like technique to work these cleansers into your skin, your face will feel wonderfully relaxed and clean.
Million Dollar Balm Massage
A nourishing balm is applied to the face not only to hydrate and revitalise the skin, but also to act as a protective layer before the next step…
This treatment has been increasingly popular in the world of beauty of late, but what is dermaplaning exactly? This on-trend procedure involves using a surgical blade to shave the face, which gets rid of dead skin, vellus hair (better known as peach fuzz) and grime that clogs your pores. By removing these hairs and 3-4 weeks of dirt, your skin will be beautifully soft and will better absorb the products used during the Million Dollar Facial.
Following the dermaplaning procedure, a gentle toner is massaged into the skin so as to remove any loose dead skin cells that have been left over.
Deep Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Using the Million Dollar Serum, this gentle massage uses sweeping and pressure point techniques so as to encourage circulation, which helps to flush the toxins that have built up in the face out of the lymph nodes.
The Million Dollar Serum – a soothing oil-like product containing natural and organic ingredients – is swept across the face to ensure the skin is hydrated.
Micro-needling involves a very small roller with over 500 tiny needles, which, when rolled over the face, gently prick the surface of the skin. So what is the point in micro-needling? The teeny punctures trick your skin into thinking that it is damaged and in need of repair, so it begins to produce extra collagen and elastin – which are exactly what plump out wrinkles and fine lines, and break down pigmentation and acne scarring.
Does micro-needling hurt? While the idea of 500 tiny needles pricking your face for smoother and younger-looking skin may seem daunting, the procedure is not painful. So there’s no need to worry; beauty isn’t always pain(!).
Hyaluronic Acid Mask
Hyaluronic acid is, in fact, a sugar molecule that is naturally produced by the body and is found primarily in your skin and connective tissues. Its main function is to retain water so that your tissues remain hydrated – it is essentially the body’s natural moisturiser. Thus, a hyaluronic acid face mask is used to nourish and maintain your skin’s moisture balance. It is particularly effective and soothing when used after micro-needling, as the hyaluronic acid can absorb deeper into the skin.
Now that your face is clean, fresh and revitalised, it will be more sensitive to the sun as the first layer of skin has been removed; so, SPF 50 is applied to protect the face.
Following the treatment, you will be provided with expert aftercare and advice for your skincare routine at home, so that you can best care for and maintain your newly glowing skin!
How Often Should I Get the Million Dollar Facial?
If you want the best results that are also long-lasting, especially for pigmentation reduction and anti-ageing benefits, one Million Dollar Facial session every 4 to 6 weeks is advised.
What Skin Type is Best Suited for a Million Dollar Facial?
The Million Dollar Facial is great for every skin type; be it dry, oily, normal or combination. At the start of the treatment, your aesthetician will carry out a skin analysis to identify:
- your skin type;
- key areas to focus on;
- how healthy your skin is.
Please note: if you have a medical condition, skin condition or are pregnant/breastfeeding, you will need to consult your doctor prior to booking and you will also need to inform your aesthetician.
Is a Million Dollar Facial right for me?
The Million Dollar Facial is effective and encouraged for those who have concerns with:

Prior to treatment, you will have a consultation with your therapist, which will include medical questions, to ensure that the whole process is tailored to your needs and that you don’t have any medical reasons not to continue with the Million Dollar Facial. If this treatment isn’t suitable for you, your therapist will recommend an alternative and equally as exceptional facial that is perfect for you.
