The half hour facial is the express version of a full facial treatment which includes the most essential elements of the facial: deep cleansing, exfoliation, and extractions. Your skin will be assessed and treated to your specific needs. Training and caution will be performed during extractions. You will leave our office feeling refreshed, clean, and ready to put your best face forward.
Rejuvenation of the skin, decreased impurities, overall maintenance of health of the skin
We ask that the night before the facial, any retinoid must be stopped and may be resumed the night afterwards. The morning of the facial, there is no necessity to apply any medicinal product other than your daily sunscreen.
The night of the facial, we ask you to treat your skin gently. Makeup can be applied if necessary but should be gently cleansed that evening. Resume your daily skin care regimen the day after the treatment.
None, but mild redness from extractions may occur up to 24 hours after the procedure
