A facial is a professional cleansing and purifying treatment of the skin on the face, neck and décolleté. Facials are the number one treatment that are performed by estheticians and a good way for your esthetician to understand your skin prior to suggesting more aggressive treatments, if needed.
Why do I need a facial?
Having a regular facial routine is more about your skin’s heath and the maintenance of your skin rather then it being about pampering; although it is a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Facials help increase circulation and stimulate the skin. They can also help slow down the process of premature aging and help improve conditions such as acne, redness and Rosacea. Men can also enjoy getting facial services. It helps minimize irritation, redness, razor burn, and ingrown hairs that are associated with shaving.

Facials are recommended once per month. You can discuss your specific needs and desired outcomes with your esthetician to get a routine schedule going.
