What is a Bacial and What Can It Do For Your Butt?

Masks and exfoliating treatments aren’t specifically reserved for facials. Estheticians and skin care specialists across the country are starting to offer “bacials,” which stands for “back facials” or “butt facials.” An esthetician out of Williamsburg, NY is making news by offering what she calls “Shiney Hiney” treatments, and her success with it has drawn in the summer crowd.

Bacials designed to target imperfections like back acne, rashy flare-ups, or skin concerns related to sweat and irritation. They are ideal for the summer months when people are showing more skin in swimwear. We all crave the flawless skin we see on the covers of magazines. The last thing we want people to notice is our impurities than can appear on our back or rump.

“We haven’t had a request for a bacial treatment at our medspa yet, but jumping on industry trends is incredibly important to us. If the clients start asking for it, we’re going to listen and won’t hesitate to deliver,” says Ashlee Penix, Client Services Manager at NLI Med Spa.

Most bacials take roughly 30 minutes to perform and the service includes cleansing, toning, exfoliating, a clay mask, extraction relief, disinfecting toner, and a rejuvenating skin serum. Afterwards, your skin feels invigorated, soft, and renewed.

National Laser Institute, the leading medical esthetics school in the nation, trains estheticians, medical professionals, and career changers how to perform a variety of skin rejuvenating services, which incorporates treatments related to the bacial. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and exfoliation are just a few services that attendees can apply to nearly any area of the body—including the back and derriere.

National Laser Institute also trains attendees how to perform other state-of-the-art services such as laser hair removal, Botox, photofacial skin rejuvenation, radiofrequency skin tightening, and many more.
