Facials Q&A

What is a facial??

A facial is a professional cleansing, purifying, and beautifying  treatment of the skin on the face and the neck. There are several variations of facials, including deep cleansing, age-management, moisturizing, rosacea/sensitive skin, and problem skin.

Facial Treatments include the following benefits:

  • deep cleanse
  • increases circulation and detoxifies
  • relaxes the senses, nerves, and muscles
  • stimulates the skin functions and metabolism
  • slows down premature aging
  • treats conditions such as dryness, oiliness and redness
  • softens wrinkles and aging lines
  • helps to clear blemishes and  acne

Who can benefit from a facial??

No matter how sensitive your skin is, you can still benefit from a facial. Every facial is customized to fit your specific skin care needs. If you have sensitive skin, only gentle cleansing and moisturizing will be used in your treatment. If yours goals are to clear up acne, your esthetician can guide you towards a facial that will help you to achieve that goal. Or maybe you are sensitive and also prone to breakouts, your skin care professional has a solution for you either way! Communicate clearly on your expectations, and our professionals will use their experience to exceed those.

How often should I have facials?

4-6 weeks

What about home-care?

When you leave the spa after a facial, your skin will be glowing, fresh, and hydrated. If your facial included extractions, you may experience some redness or tenderness in the areas that were focused on most. Some facials can bring out breakouts for a short period afterward, since the skin was stimulated and is now ridding itself of toxins and impurities. Keep in mind that the more facials you get, the less impurities your skin will contain. You will experience less as time goes on. Your esthetician will recommend a skin care regiment for you, and give you pointers on how to best care for your skin.
