How do I know what facial is best for me?
We recommend scheduling a complimentary consultation with one of our licensed providers to determine which facial treatment is most appropriate for you and your aesthetic goals.
How often should I get a facial?
For healthy skin maintenance, we recommend seeing one of our licensed aestheticians monthly. To quickly address severe skin conditions, such as acne, some patients require additional visits.
What if I have active acne on the day of my treatment?
With our advanced education and extensive experience in treating acne, your treatment can still be administered on the date of service if you are experiencing a breakout. Our physician assistants are also able to prescribe oral and/or topical medication targeted to treat acne accelerating results.
Will I experience a breakout after my facial?
Our facial services are designed as a targeted detox for your skin. Throughout the detox process, breakouts are possible as these treatments are intended to purge unwanted bacteria within the dermis. Remaining consistent with treatments will lessen the possibility of new breakouts occurring post treatment. For patients who are prone to skin allergies and sensitivities, it is vital to discuss your skin allergies and sensitivities with your provider prior to treatment.
Do men receive facials?
Yes. Everyone needs to practice self care, including men. Facials are most beneficial for men as facials create stimulation to pronounced hair follicles improving hair growth, thus decreasing the chance of ingrown hairs on the face.
How can I elevate my facial experience?
To maximize product absorption for efficacy and long-lasting results, we recommend adding dermaplaning to your facial service. Dermaplaning removes the outermost layer of dead skin and vellus hair allowing for better product penetration yielding maximum results.
Are there post-care restrictions after my facial?
- Avoid applying makeup or other facial products for 4 hours
- Avoid direct sun exposure for 48 hours
- Avoid chemical and physical exfoliants for 72 hours similar to retinoids, exfoliating scrubs, etc.
- Do not pick at your skin
- Keep your skin hydrated
- Wear SPF daily
