Summertime Acne Spa Facial Treatment Plan

A Spa Facial Designed to Fight Acne

Its that time of year again the time of year when most breakouts seem to occur. Its also a time when we are still on a budget for many with travel, going back to school etc. so I wanted to come up with a great way to balance the summertime breakouts yet still be reasonable on the budget. We came up with our current special: The Summertime Acne Spa Facial Treatment Plan $165. This plan consists of a series of four spa facials in one month to really get the breakouts under control. The first facial is our 60 minute spa facial which is always customized and is comprised of a deep cleansing, skin analysis, exfoliating treatment, two masks (based on your skin at the moment so they can change at any time), extractions (what acne spa facial would complete without them?), and high frequency to help banish the current eruptions, toner, moisturizer, spf and eye/lip cream.

Usually in our 60 minute we do facial massage however I do not encourage this in acne clients getting facials as this may stimulate the sebaceous glands causing more breakouts and that’s just a risk I would rather not take. Lots of people also ask me what exactly high frequency does and how it can help breakouts. High frequency has been around since the 1800’s but it wasn’t until the 1970’s did they discover the cosmetic and healing benefits. It uses a low level of oxygenating electrical current (usually not painful at all however for those deep cystic eruptions there may be a little bit of discomfort at the time but so worth it in the end!) to enhance blood circulation, eliminate toxins and acne bacteria, and increase collagen and elastin production while exfoliating dead skin cells and aiding in lymphatic drainage.

This is all used through glass electrodes that come in various shapes and sizes. This device is what I call “an estheticians best friend”. The second third and fourth facials are all our express spa facials which are great at keeping the results from the first facial maintained. After the month is up we will reevaluate and go from there but the goal is to get you to the point where the acne is under control with only maintenance facials needed. I can not stress this enough, one facial will not get rid of acne completely.

This is why we have designed our treatment plan, to stay on top of breakouts. What you use at home is just as important. If you are using the right products on your skin not only will it keep the results of the facial lasting much longer but you will also have an aid in keeping the skin clean and bacteria free! We will evaluate your at home regimen to make sure you have everything you need and exactly when and how to use it. See you soon!

Spa Facial Special – Pumpkin Enzyme Facial

Fall is here and so is our Pumpkin Enzyme spa facial!

Packed with wonderful antioxidants from yam puree, which is also high in beta carotene.  Pineapple puree is added for amino acids, beta carotene and skin softening enzymes as well as papaya extract. This is a 20% glycolic acid treatment which is amazing at softening the skin and great for most skin types from the oily to the very dry. Lactic acid is also incorporated to slough off dead skin cells and improve skin texture while willow bark, a natural beta hydroxy, to help minimize the appearance of pores which we all want!  Phyto-hyaluronic acid which is a phytocollagen, is a natural, deeply hydrating substance (all plant based of course) that plumps and smoothes the skin’s surface to aid in minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains green tea extract which is high in antioxidants, polyphenols, flavonoids, and vitamins for a more youthful appearance.  Lastly pumpkin puree which is rich in enzymes, beta-carotene, amino acids, and antioxidants rounding out the scrumptious blend that is slightly tingly and refreshing with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.

This is by far one of my favorite fall spa facial treatments as we are leaving the summer heat and going into cooler, dryer weather.  This full sixty minute spa facial for $65 features a cleanse, skin analysis, pumpkin enzyme, chocolate sugar scrub, facial and scalp massage, extractions if needed, a light pumpkin latte hydrating mask to help calm and restore hydration in the skin, eye/lip cream and of course spf.  Lastly a décolleté, arm and hand massage for circulation with our fabulous pumpkin spice body butter.

We are also currently offering a massage special for a sixty minute massage with Lucy (our wonderful esthetician and massage therapist extraordinaire) for $65 now through October.
