People get facials for different reasons: some people want those horrible blackheads out! Others start taking care of their skin in their 20s to preserve a youthful look. Older people want some help with anti-again regimens. And then there are the people who just want to relax and be pampered.
A facial is essentially a multi-step skin treatment that is one of the best ways to take care of your skin. A facial cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger. You also receive advice on the best way to take care of your skin. A facial works best when it is part of an on-going program of skin care.

How often should I get facials? Once monthly facials are recommended to help aid in the cell turn over process which happens approximately every 30 days. As we age, this cell turn over process slows down, contributing to dull sallow looking skin, fine lines, wrinkles, blackheads, congestion, and coarsely textured skin. Monthly facials assist your body in doing more efficiently what it is"supposed" to do on its own.
What can I expect during a facial treatment? When you arrive, you will be asked to fill out a consultation form. You may view, print, and fill out a facial consultation card ahead of time directly below. Most facials consist of a double cleanse with steam, exfoliation, extractions with a skin analysis, facial and upper body massage, facial mask, and hydration. Depending on the facial and your skincare history, the exfoliation performed will vary. Different facial "add-ons" can be added to your treatment for a small additional fee. All facials are uniquely customized to target your specific skincare needs. Please see the Menu for more information on these add-ons and specific facials offered.
Will my skin be red or irritated after my facial? Slight redness is normal after a facial, especially if you've received any sort of chemical exfoliant such as a glycolic or a alpha hydroxy acid, or received a large amount of extractions. Slight irritation may be experienced during these instances, however it should not continue after your facial treatment has been completed. Certain skin types, including those who tend to be more sensitive, may be prone to experiencing more redness post treatment.

What is a "series" of facials and why is it recommended? A series of facials is the best way to jump start your skincare maintenance, especially if you're looking for positive results, fast! Facial series are generally offered in a series of six, performed once a week for six weeks, and are most effective when performed using a chemical exfoliant such as a glycolic or a lactic acid. (The exfoliant used will be determined based on your skincare history.) Payment is paid in full after the first treatment of the series. Please see my menu for more pricing information.
Can I receive a facial waxing such as an eyebrow or lip wax on the same day as my facial? Yes! Waxing is always done first, prior to your facial, for the up most comfort and safety of your skin. Any areas waxed will be carefully avoided during your facial exfoliation so as not to further irritate the skin.
