No matter how well you take care of your skin at home, there is always benefit from getting the full facial treatment from a professional licensed esthetician. Both relaxing and therapeutic, our facials always aim at delivering great results to your skin. We customize the facial for each individual. This relaxing facial begins with an individual flare. The facial begins with a gentle cleansing, followed by deep-pore cleansing with steam. Next, impurities are removed to improve skin tone and texture. A customized mask is applied that hydrates and renews the skin. Your treatment is finalized with a nutrient-rich moisturizer and SPF protection.
Vitamin C treatment provides immediate results, while neutralizing environmental and sun damage. Your skin will feel smoother and firmer. An antioxidant is a substance that prevents other chemicals in our body from becoming “oxidized”; this is a chemical reaction leading to cellular damage. The most common antioxidants available are Vitamins A, C, E, and beta-carotene. In our body, antioxidants combat harmful free radicals, which are by-products that are formed when oxygen is used in the body. Free radicals start a chain reaction under the skin’s surface, which results in damage to the skin at a cellular level. Ultraviolet light from the sun causes the production of free radicals in the skin, which can also be harmful to us. Medical studies suggest that antioxidants can protect the skin from free radicals, which is why we recommend topical antioxidants as part of a daily skin care program.
We all have struggled with acne at one point in our lives. Most people want to pop a stubborn pimple in the moment, but by doing so, you could end up causing more damage to your skin. Acne extractions can be very beneficial for unclogging your pores when performed correctly. An acne extraction is the process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore with the help of special, sterile tools. The esthetician wears gloves and will then proceed to apply gentle pressure around the pore to extract the contents. Extractions help to clear out all of the unwanted gunk inside of your pores, including dirt, makeup, sweat, and excess sebum.
Our Purifying Acne Facial is a deep-pore cleansing facial designed to relieve breakouts and eliminate blackheads. It includes exfoliation and then a detoxifying mask customized for the individual needs of each client. Extractions are then performed under a magnifying lamp with a bright light so that your esthetician can easily see your pores and help get rid of problem pimples. Proper hydration will be applied at the end along with SPF protection.
The Back Facial is very similar to our Purifying Acne Facial. It is a deep-pore cleansing facial designed to relieve breakouts and eliminate blackheads on the back. It includes exfoliation, a detoxifying mask customized for the individual needs of each client and extractions. Proper hydration will be applied. Home care recommendations for acne will also be provided.
The body needs oxygen to thrive, which is why we breathe. Skin cells that are fully oxygenated via treatments like an oxygen facial will look bright and healthy. During the procedure, one of our aestheticians will first cleanse and exfoliate your face. Next a wand is used to deliver a stream of high pressurized oxygen to the skin’s surface. Serums containing hyaluronic acid, which is known to plump the skin, are also applied to the face with the wand during the oxygen portion of the facial. Unlike more invasive treatments, there’s no downtime or healing after an oxygen facial. You can even apply makeup directly after if you choose.
The Oxygen Facial allows the pores to more easily absorb hyaluronic acid and the other powerhouse ingredients from the serums used during the treatment.
Oxygen actually helps infuse the serums into the skin. You can think of the oxygen wand like a little hose that delivers ingredients. Your skin will look and feel hydrated, especially since hyaluronic acid is a component.
More even skin tone.
Our Oxygen facial delivers a large quantity of vitamins and botanical ingredients to your skin, which results in bright, glowing skin.
Reduction in fine lines.
Oxygen facials help improve blood circulation to the face, which helps the skin to appear bright and plump.
Calming of acne.
Oxygen is known to accelerate wound healing and also kill certain bacteria. This is why places with low levels of oxygen, such as airplanes, can cause skin issues. For these reasons, oxygen facials can help calm acne and kill Propionibacterium acne bacteria, which causes certain types of acne.
This treatment is designed to address skin concerns unique to men. A deep cleanse is followed by a smoothing exfoliation and extractions to remove congested pores. Tension is released with a soothing face massage and mask. It is finished with a moisturizer and SPF sun protection. For best results, it is recommended not to shave the morning of the treatment.
