As the most prominent feature on the human body, there’s no such thing as cutting corners when it comes to taking care of our faces. As a multi-step treatment, facials are one of the best methods of taking care of our face and skin. Facials nourish, exfoliate, and cleanse the skin, promoting a clear and well-hydrated complexion.


People receive facials for a number of different reasons. For many of us, facials are simply a relaxing experience that leaves our face feeling fresh, radiant, and calm. Facials can also help people who have a recurring or one-time issue with blackheads. For people concerned about maintaining a youthful look and anti-aging regimes, facials are crucial.


Whether you want a facial for health or relaxation, our facial services will have you covered:

Facials yes, but how often?


We feel the need to answer this question right away as it is quite common to hear it. The simple answer is that it varies from one individual to another. Ideally, you should get a facial at least once per month, since that is how long it takes your skin to regenerate. In case you are experiencing a skin condition, you may need facials more frequently.


The Benefits of Getting Facials


Facials come with numerous benefits. Your face is always subject to different elements such as air, fumes, and the sun. Facials provide you with the chance to work with an expert skin care specialist who will examine your skin, help you in improving your complexion, and also show you how you can properly take care of your skin. Facials provide you with a deep cleansing that is much deeper than the cleansing that you can get at home. The act of cleansing and exfoliating your skin aids in the unclogging of your pores.


When you get a facial, your skin will be moistened with the use of hot, damp towels and steam. Facials also help in stimulating your skin and increasing blood circulation in your face.

Zenora Facials Kigali

The basic components of getting a facial:




Facials should start with consultations. Our aesthetician will get to know you, your lifestyle, and your goals for your skin.


Skin Analysis


Depending on which treatment you have chosen, our aestheticians will analyze your skin. By doing so, they will be determining your basic skin type (sensitive or normal, combination, oily, or dry) and skin conditions (dehydration, sun-damage, aging, whiteheads, blackheads, acne, etc.). The aestheticians will then select the most appropriate treatments and products, and consult with you with regards to what they see and recommend for you.




Our aestheticians begin by wrapping your hair with the use of a towel or a simple headband so as to keep our premium products off of it. This step involves a thorough cleansing procedure with the use of sponges, aesthetician wipes, and cotton pads.




A majority of facials utilize a machine which directs a thin vapor of warm steam towards your face. This is very relaxing and it helps in softening up any whiteheads and blackheads that are to be extracted. In case you have a very delicate skin, our aestheticians will not use the steam.




Mechanical exfoliants come with a gritty texture which rubs away the dead skin cells from the surface. This kind of exfoliation typically takes place during the process of steaming. Medicinal exfoliation uses products to loosen the bond that lies between the skin cells. During the steaming process, a gentle treatment can be done.




This refers to the removal of whiteheads or blackheads in case you want them eliminated. We take great care in making sure that our clients are comfortable throughout the procedure and leave with flawless skin.




All of our facials include a gentle face and neck massage that are carried out with the use of classic strokes to both stimulate and relax your facial muscles and skin.


Facial Mask


This is targeted to your skin type (oily, dry, combination, mature, sensitive) and condition.


Final Application


This will include the application of a moisturizer, serums, and toner.
