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. If the treatment you are receiving requires any specific lifestyle accommodations, your esthetician will discuss those with you upon completion of the service.
We recommend every 3-5 weeks for regular maintenance. This allows your esthetician to monitor your skin through the seasons to help you maintain a healthy, glowing complexion. Your esthetician will discuss recommendations with you after your service if a more frequent schedule is recommended to help you achieve maximum results.
Put simply: healthy, glowing skin! We chose our products and services to help get (and keep) your skin healthy.
Some people will see results immediately and your skin should feel better after your first treatment. Skin care is a continuous, daily process so some conditions such as acne, aging and hyperpigmentation usually require a series of treatments to start seeing significant results. Your skin will continuously improve as you follow the advice and recommendations from your esthetician and continue with your home care regimen.
We recommend being diligent with your home skin care. Regular cleansing, toning, exfoliating, nourishing treatment, hydrating and protecting will help your skin to remain healthy and continue to improve as you go through treatment with your esthetician.
It is not necessary because your esthetician will thoroughly cleanse your skin, however, removal of excess eye makeup may cut into your service time.
There is no need to wash your face after a skin care service. Your esthetician will finish your service with a treatment serum, eye treatment, moisturizer, SPF and lip hydrator. Makeup may be applied 10-15 min after most skin care services, however, we strongly advise against wearing makeup after a skin care treatment.
Your esthetician will analyze your skin in your first treatment and ask about your skin’s history. We recommend starting with a Signature Facial for relaxation and to allow you to get to know your esthetician and communicate your skin care goals and concerns. 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.
We carry an array of professional products which can be purchased for home care use to maintain and maximize your results in between services.
Yes, children between the ages of 12-17 may receive select skin care services with parent/guardian consent. A minor consent form is required and must be filled out by a parent/guardian prior to any service. A parent/guardian must be present for the entire skin care service of any minor aged 15 and under.
Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation which utilizes a sterile surgical blade to remove the top layer of skin (2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells) and the “peach fuzz” from face. It is non-invasive and very comfortable. Great option for pregnant women wanting exfoliation. Skin is brighter, smoother, more youthful and glowing after. Skin care products are able to penetrate more deeply and makeup application is smoother. Active acne is a restriction, as your esthetician may not perform the dermaplaning on any raised surfaces on the face.
Microdermabrasion is another form of physical exfoliation that utilizes a Diamond Tip wand with vacuum suction. Most clients describe it as “a little scratchy” but not uncomfortable. The vacuum suction stimulates lymphatic flow throughout face, promoting the internal health of your skin as well. Good option for those with acne scars or other forms of hyperpigmentation. Microdermabrasion may be performed on someone with active acne, at your esthetician’s discretion. Your esthetician will not perform microdermabrasion over open acne lesions.
