The Aesthetic Lounge Difference
At The Aesthetic Lounge we do things differently, because we understand one crucial foundation of achieving results; if you fail to prepare, you are preparing to fail. To us, skin preparation is the single most important step to achieve the skin you have always dreamt of having. Our results are testament to this. Our Starter Facials are gentle enough for skins that haven’t been prepared on our prescribed skincare, but are still targeted enough to promote healthy, strong skin, ready for our Advanced Treatments.
Why Starter Facials?
Each treatment at The Aesthetic Lounge has one purpose; to transform your skin by maximising the results of every single treatment you experience.
Starter Facials are the foundations of all our treatments, specifically designed to detox, strengthen and stimulate your skin, preparing it for our Advanced and Specialised Treatments. If your skin is not correctly prepared, it will not tolerate the intensity of these corrective treatments, delaying recovery and affecting your skin goals.

- How Do I Prepare My Skin To Achieve The Best Results?
Consistency is the key to long lasting, rapid results. For optimum results your skin therapist will create a skin journey, that in conjunction with your recommended skincare routine will prepare your skin for our Advanced and Specialised Treatments. Download your Skin Preparation Guide here.
- Can I Have Other Treatments To Supercharge My Results?
Absolutely. We have a selection of add-on treatments that, when combined with your facial, rapidly target your skin concerns and enhance your results;
- With three therapeutic wavelengths, our LED Light Therapy; kills bacteria, increases healing and stimulates age defying cells
- A Cold Therapy Mask soothes and calms red inflamed skin
- Extractions and High Frequency clear away problematic congestion
Furthermore, if your skin is prepared with our recommended Cosmeceuticals you can customise your starter facial to include skin peels and/or microdermabrasion.
- How Will My Skin Benefit From Starter Facials?
Our Starter Facials are designed to decongest and exfoliate whilst hydrating and strengthening your skin to prepare you for our powerful cosmeceutical skincare routine and Advanced and Specialised Treatments.
- How Often Can I Have a Starter Facial?
Starter Facials can be performed every week to once a month depending on the results you are after. If you are maintaining your skin then one facial every month in conjunction with your prescribed skincare will support your results. However, clients with active and recurring breakouts may need a series of facials at weekly intervals to combat their problematic skin. Likewise, clients wanting to transform their complexion will be recommended a more targeted skin program consisting of Advanced and Specialised Treatments.
- How Do I Maintain My Results?
A monthly Advanced Facial along with your prescribed skincare products will not only help to maintain your achieved results but further improve them. Discover which of our Skin Membership programs will rapidly transform your skin.
- Who Cannot Have Starter Facials?
Our Starter Facials can be customised to suit most skins’ needs. However, if you are unwell or have an active cold sore on your face, then please reschedule your facial.
- Which Starter Facial is best for me?
Unsure of which facial will not only suit your skin type but achieve the results you wish for? Our Discovery Facial is an interactive, hands on skin consultation where your skin therapist will discuss your skin goals and customise a facial eliminating the guesswork.
- What Will My Skin Look Like Immediately After A Starter Facial?
It is common for your skin to have a healthy, radiant and slightly flushed glow. If your facial includes extractions, we highly recommend including a Cold Therapy Mask to rapidly calm red and swollen blemishes.
- Do I Need To Prepare My Skin For A Starter Facial?
Our Starter Facials have been designed so that if your skin is not prepared with cosmeceutical products, you can still get started with a facial right away. However, we believe in achieving amazing, long lasting results and this can only be successfully achieved through skin preparation. Download “The 5 Steps To Achieving Your Best Skin Ever” here.
- Which Of Your Starter Facials Are Pregnancy Safe?
All our Starter Facials can be customised to be safe throughout your pregnancy. If your facial includes any contraindicated products or elements your therapist will substitute a suitable add-on treatment, such as; enzymes, extractions, a customised antioxidant infusion, cold therapy mask, extra massage time or even to include your neck or decolletage for an ultimate immersive facial experience.
- What If I Book In For A Facial That Is Not Suitable For Me?
At the time of your appointment, your therapist will assess your skin and customise a treatment with the available booked time to suit your needs.
Speaking with one of our receptionists will help you decide on the most suitable facial treatment for your skin type and skin concerns. Alternatively, you can visit our informative pages on skin concerns to identify which treatments are most suitable for your skin concerns.
If you’re finding it hard deciding on which treatments will best address your skin concerns, booking a Discovery Facial with one of our Dermal Therapists will ensure your skin goals are met with a targeted treatment and product program.
- What Are Extractions?
Extractions are the manual removal of lumps and bumps from under the skin. This includes; congestion, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, breakouts and milia.
Extractions aid in detoxing and smoothing the skin, they also allow it to heal faster and prevent pink, brown or indented scarring that is often left behind after a breakout. Temporary swelling may be present after extractions, which usually subsides within 24-48 hours.
All our treatments with extractions include High Frequency where suitable.
Some bumps are not able to be removed with extractions, but may be suitable for Lamprobe removal.
- What Is High Frequency And How Will It Help My Skin?
High Frequency is a comfortable, quick and effective treatment for active breakouts, post extractions, poor healers and cold sores before they have erupted.
A low alternating electrical current is used and ozone gas is produced for an antibacterial and healing effect. You may feel tingling, warmth or have a mild metallic taste during the treatment.
High Frequency is not suitable for clients with braces, epilepsy, pacemakers, high blood pressure or during pregnancy.
- Is It Normal To Get Breakouts After A Facial?
If you have a lot of dead skin build-up, dehydration or deep congestion, you may breakout a couple of days after your facial while the skin is detoxifying. If this occurs, regular treatments are recommended to get on top of underlying congestion and prevent future breakouts.
