On your first visit you will be asked to fill out our Facial Consent form which covers relevant health and skin history to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for you. Your esthetician will conduct a brief consultation with you before the service to determine which products and services best fit your skin care needs and goals. Your esthetician will then instruct you on the process of getting comfortable for your service. Some treatments require some disrobing for which the esthetician will leave the room while you undress to your comfort level. During the service, all you have to do is relax. Your esthetician will clearly communicate any relevant information or action needed during the treatment. Keep an open line of communication with your esthetician throughout the service, especially if anything is uncomfortable.
Everyone’s skin responds differently to skin care services. There is a slight chance that you may break out within 2-3 days after your service. Due to the exfoliation process in our skin care services; your skin may “purge” anything that is right below the surface of your skin before your treatment. These breakouts are usually mild and clear up within a few days. Just remember NO PICKING!
If you experience an allergic reaction after a skin care service, please let us know as soon as possible and consult your physician.
An SPF or 30 or higher is applied to your skin to finish your treatment. Most skin care services make your skin a little more sensitive to the sun due to the exfoliations process during the service. Daily application of an SPF of 15 or higher is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun. Limiting sun exposure and heat for 24-48 hours is advised. Also, vigorous aerobic activity, swimming in pools with chlorine or use of hot tubs, steam rooms and saunas are advised against during this time as well.

Your esthetician will analyze your skin in your first treatment and ask about your skin’s history.

Your esthetician will then make recommendations on a skin care plan for your individual needs.
You may also call the spa at any time if you have a question and our esthetician can answer your questions and help you choose the best service to start with.
