All of our facials include any machine upgrade that our Aestheticians deem beneficial at no additional cost, unless the excess treatments add additional time in which case adding time to your service will be discussed and agreed upon prior to doing so. All skin is different, and each client will have their skin care service customized to their needs, including the use of products, machines, and modalities. We want you to get the most of your money and your time. All facials begin with a skin analysis (utilizing Wood’s Lamp as needed) to determine your skins type (Dry, Normal, Oily or Combination), texture, tone, moisture level and overall condition. Your service continues with a cleansing of the face, neck and décolleté to remove debris, makeup, oil, environmental debris. Next a 2nd deeper cleansing is performed (with a rotary brush and exfoliant if indicated for your skin needs) to begin exfoliation and prep skin for treatment. A pampering facial steam follows, either with the steamer or steamed towels as needed for your skin. Alkalizing Solution may be used if needed for easier extractions. This also allows for better product penetration and softens the skin for any extractions that are needed. This can clear clogged pores and aid in the removal of excess sebum, whiteheads and blackheads, or clean any areas of congestion that often occur overtime with daily environmental exposure (extractions may be done manually or with the use of machine suction). Extractions are followed by a soothing massage of the face (high frequency, galvanic, or ultrasonic will be utilized if necessary), neck and décolleté to relax and improve circulation. A targeted treatment mask will be applied to address your skin care needs (dehydrated, oily, irritated, blemished, etc.) as you receive a scalp and neck massage or massage of the hands and arms while your mask goes to work. Your facial will conclude with the application of a hydrating moisturizer and our advanced SPF 30 sunscreen to soothe, protect and shield your skin from the elements.

Descriptions of some of the terms used above:
An extraction is the process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore by manual or mechanical means. Extractions are often performed as part of a facial. Most people need at least a couple of extractions during each facial, though you may require more extractions if this is your first facial. Comedones (blackheads) are the most common reason for extraction. A blackhead is not necessarily “dirt in the pores” as many people think. It is a pore that has become clogged with excess sebum and dead skin cells. The dark spot which is visible on the surface of the skin is oil which has oxidized and darkened on exposure to the air, like when you slice an apple and allow it to sit out for a while. Pustules and pimples can also be extracted, depending on their size and depth. This often requires the use of a lancet to gently lift and remove the very top layer of the pustule to allow the contents to be easily extracted. Some pores may not be ready to be extracted on the first attempt and may require several treatments before they can be cleared.
An adjective that means relating to or involving electric currents produced by chemical action. A galvanic cell, or voltaic cell, named after Luigi Galvani, or Alessandro Volta respectively, is an electrochemical cell that derives electrical energy from spontaneous redox reactions taking place within the cell. This wonderful treatment can be considered a ‘non-surgical face lift’. This treatment involves the use of a device that uses low-level galvanic (electric) current to facilitate the transport of key ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin for improved cleansing, hydration, circulation, and radiance. Recommended for most skin types, including sensitive skin. Some benefits of the use of the galvanic attachment during your facial are: tones muscles, decreases the appearance of age spots, anti-bacterial, helps remove sebaceous blockages and clear congestion that leads to acne, reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps restore sun damaged skin.
High frequency designed by inventor Nikola Tesla in 1891. It is used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current. Electrotherapy is considered a timeless and essential skin rejuvenating treatment in the skin care industry, high frequency stimulates cell renewal by gently warming the tissues of the skin. Some benefits of the use of the high frequency attachment during your facial are: Helps increase blood circulation, treats and prevents stubborn acne by drying oil and killing bacteria below the surface of the epidermis where products alone cannot reach, decreases the appearance of enlarged pores, reduces the appearance of fine lines, supplies nutrition to the skin, helps rid the skin of toxins, sterilizes and diminishes inflammation, promotes wound healing, and penetrates products deeper into the skin
An electronic spinning brush that sloughs off dead cells to remove any dirt and grime that clings to the skin’s surface. Typically used when exfoliation is needed.
Ultrasonic is an adjective referring to ultrasound. Ultrasound is sound with a frequency greater than the upper limit of human hearing (greater than 20 kHz). The application of ultrasonic frequency is commonly used to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin promoting cellular renewal and repair, toning muscles, increasing blood circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage, combating puffiness and swelling and improving skin care product penetration. Some benefits of the use of the ultrasonic attachment during your facial are: increase cellular turnover, exfoliation, plump up and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, relieve puffy eyes, reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve acne, tighten enlarged pores, freckles and old age spots and even repair scar damage. The process is safe, painless and gentle and is can even be used by sensitive skin types such as those with Rosacea.
The Wood’s lamp examination is a procedure that uses trans illumination (light) to detect bacterial or fungal skin infections. It also can detect skin pigment disorders such as vitiligo or other irregularities in the skin.
