What Is A Full Body Scrub Treatment?

Spa treatments are both relaxing and fun. They can also transform how you look and feel about yourself. Among these therapeutic treatments are deep cleanings and scrubs. There are several treatments of this kind that target specific areas like your face, hands, feet, and body. Facials clean out your pores, mani/pedis exfoliate and refine your nails and the skin on your hands and feet. But when you need a deep cleaning of your entire body, you need a full body scrub.

 

What Is A Full Body Scrub?

A full body scrub involves getting your body professionally cleaned from the neck down with special exfoliants, oils, and moisturizers. This is an intensely rejuvenating and relaxing experience that polishes your dull and tired skin and reveals the soft new skin that waits underneath. It's especially useful in reaching areas of your body like the middle of your back that may be challenging to scrub and exfoliate on your own. At the end of the treatment, your body will be rinsed and moisturized and feel great.

Frequently Asked Questions About Body Scrubs

If you're interested in getting a full body scrub but have no idea what to expect, here are some frequently asked questions that can help you determine if it's right for you.

#1: Do I Have To Be Naked?

Let's address the elephant in the room. A full body scrub definitely infers that your whole body is being scrubbed, which can make naturally modest or timid people shy away from getting this treatment. However, shy spa-goers will be pleased to know that it's always an option to cover any part of your body with a towel during the scrub. You can also wear swimwear like a bikini if you are uncomfortable. The point of the treatment is to exfoliate your skin and deeply moisturize the body. But we also want to make sure you feel relaxed! If you think you'll be uncomfortable getting the treatment, simply wear a swimsuit and let your spa attendant know. 

#2: What Kinds Of Scrubs Are There?

There are plenty of variations when it comes to full body scrubs. Each spa will have its own offerings that can meet the preferences of diverse customers.

  • Aromatherapy- Uses scents to promote wellness and relaxation. Your esthetician will use essential oils that can help you relax.
  • Soothing sounds- You can also get this treatment with lights low and soothing music to get you to unwind. This can also be coupled with any other treatment to boost its relaxing effects.
  • Deep exfoliation- You can choose the intensity of your body scrub, from using gentle beads to more stimulating and abrasive sea salts. The treatments will vary in strength according to your comfort level.
  • Ultra-moisturizing- A scrub that focuses on restoring your body's soft skin texture will focus on intense moisturization.
  • Lavender Body Scrub - At Le Petit Spa we offer an exclusive body scrub treatment using our organic, locally grown lavender oil. 

#3: What Treatments Go Well With A Full Body Scrub?

While you treat your whole body to this pampering, there are a few spa treatments that go very well with a full body scrub. Turn a single visit into a whole day of excellent rejuvenation and wellness!

  • Facials- The skin on your body isn't as sensitive or delicate as the skin on your face. If you want to exfoliate your face, getting a facial before or after your full body scrub will feel amazing and have you leave the spa glowing all over.
  • Mani/Pedi- This will target your hands and feet and clean your cuticles and nails to have you looking pristine from head to toe.
  • Microdermabrasion- For a deeper clean that goes down to your pores, this treatment that takes the top layer of dead skin away from your face.
  • Spray tan- After you remove dead skin from your body, you'll have fresh and smooth new skin that will hold a spray tan longer than if you just walked in and got the treatment done without a full body scrub.
